Newark, Oct. 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Brainy Insights estimates that the USD 6.16 billion in 2022 global traditional wound management market will reach USD 9.82 billion in 2032. Thermal or physical damage results in a wound on the epithelial lining of the skin or mucosa. The type and duration of the healing process can distinguish acute and chronic wounds. An acute wound is a skin damage brought on by an accident or medical operation. The healing process for skin injuries to the epidermis and dermis layers typically takes eight to twelve weeks, depending on their size, depth, and severity. However, persistent wounds are typically unable to heal and cannot be treated promptly or systematically. The most often used therapeutic dressings are conventional or inert because of their inexpensive cost and simple manufacturing process.

Market Dynamics

Driver: increasing awareness about the advantages of traditional wound care.

In conventional wound treatment, cotton, gauze, and lint dressings are frequently utilized. The first site where traditional materials for healing wounds were widely employed was ancient Egypt. They also applied honey to the wounds because they thought it had therapeutic qualities. Despite recent advancements in wound care dressing materials, traditional wound dressings are still utilized in wound therapy, especially in developing countries. Historically, dressings have performed various functions, including haemostasis, cosmesis, protection, absorption, and support. Clinical practice typically uses traditional wound dressings since they are simple to use and reasonably priced.

Restraints: The ineffectiveness of traditional dressings.

Unlike traditional wound dressings, traditional wound dressings cannot maintain the wound’s moisture content, which is now known to be essential for the greatest potential wound healing. Traditional wound dressings can potentially cause harm because they adhere to the wound bed. Furthermore, traditional dressings such as gauze sometimes provide weakened protection against bacterial infection.

Opportunities: Growing number of chronic illnesses.

Growing numbers of chronic illness cases have resulted in a high rate of wounds, particularly in the elderly population. Numerous illnesses these chronic diseases induce in the body might impair immunity and disrupt blood flow. Additionally, severe pain brought on by chronic illnesses can be quite uncomfortable for individuals. Several chronic disorders are commonly associated with ageing, such as those affecting the heart, kidneys, musculoskeletal system, lungs, neurological system, and blood vessels. Several chronic disorders impact the development, healing, and management of wounds.

Challenges: the lack of awareness.

The increasing availability, accessibility and affordability of advanced wound care will challenge the traditional wound management market as more and more people look towards quick fixes for instant relief, comfort and healing.
