Active Wound Care Industry Overview
The global active wound care market size was valued at USD 1,077.9 million in 2021 and is projected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.7% from 2022 to 2030.
The market is primarily driven by technology advancements, an ageing population, difficulties associated with inadequate traditional wound healing procedures, government initiatives, and an urgent need for faster and safer chronic wound treatment. Moreover, rising prevalence of several lifestyle conditions that lead to chronic wounds, such as diabetic foot ulcer, venous leg ulcer, and pressure ulcer, is expected to drive the expansion of the market in the coming years.

For instance, chronic wounds impact around 5.7 million people in the U.S., according to recent estimates published in NCBI. Besides, some chronic lesions, such as diabetic ulcers, can necessitate amputation. The Independent Diabetes Trust in the United Kingdom claimed in its report (2019) that each year, around 115,000 people get diabetic foot ulcers and 278,000 people are treated for venous leg ulcers in the U.K. As a result, these ulcers take an average of 200 days to cure. Thus, the rising prevalence of chronic and acute wounds is expected to increase the demand for active wound care products.
Furthermore, benefits such as reducing the length of hospital stay to minimize surgical healthcare costs, as well as a growing preference for products that improve therapeutic results, are boosting demand for active wound care products. In addition, the rising economic cost burden of chronic wounds, as well as prolonged treatment duration and the inefficiency of wound dressings and devices in treating chronic wounds, might have resulted in increased unmet needs. This presents a huge opportunity for players to enter the market for active wound care by launching new products based on regenerative technologies, to reduce overall treatment duration and cost. This, combined with effective treatment outcomes for chronic wound patients, will drive demand for innovative active wound care treatment options.
Advanced growth factors and biological skin substitutes are well-known and scientifically established in the treatment of both acute and chronic wounds. Key players are currently attempting to strengthen their global presence by introducing new bioactive products to the market for active wound care. For instance, in July 2019, Angelini ACRAF S.p.A., introduced a new active wound cleanser. Similarly, in February 2019, Axio Biosolutions released MaxioCel which contains chitosan and is intended to treat chronic wounds. Further, in January 2019, the US FDA approved Platform Wound Dressing (PWD) by Applied Tissue Technologies LLC. Besides, in April 2018, MTF Biologics (previously known as Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation) launched AminoBand Viable Membrane at the Wound Healing Society (WHS) meeting in the U.S. As a result of such launches coupled with rising spending on research and development activities and by key players, the market is expected to witness significant growth in the near term.
The COVID-19, had a negative impact on the market for active wound care, mainly owing to the cancellation or delay of elective surgeries. However, the rising adoption of telehealth and virtual consultations has helped the market regain post-COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, the Wound Pros provides a telemedicine platform that allows wound care teams and patients to communicate securely. It has also recently introduced "RITA," a new diagnostic and wound assessment application. Furthermore, according to several research studies, telemedicine options are a cost-effective way to improve wound care outcomes, growing patient compliance, and satisfaction. In addition to this, insurance policies have also started covering telehealth. Thus, owing to the aforementioned factors, the market for active wound care is anticipated to gain a significant growth rate in the post-pandemic period.
