The global wound care market is expected to reach $18.3 billion by 2019 from $15.6 billion in 2014, growing at a CAGR of 3.2% from 2014 to 2019. The global wound care market is categorized on the basis of product and geography. The active wound care market is expected to register the highest growth rate in the wound care market during the forecast period, owing to the continuous launch of new and advanced products.
Major factors contributing to growth of the wound care market include rising awareness regarding new and advanced products for wound treatment and the rising aging and diabetic population. Furthermore, government support in the form of funding is another major factor providing impetus for growth of this market. For instance, in September 2013, NeoStem, Inc. (U.S.) received funding of $0.147 million from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), under the small business innovative research program (SBIR). This fund would be utilized for the development of adult pluripotent very small embryonic like (VSEL) stem cells for the treatment of skin wounds in scleroderma. Furthermore, in July 2011, the Ohio State University College of Medicine received funding of $1.4 million from the U.S. Department of Defense for wound treatment research. This two-year fund was specifically directed for the treatment of burn wounds using brown algae extracted from seaweed and giant kelp. Such support in the form of funding is likely to provide impetus for the market growth. The relatively untapped markets of the Asian region and the bio-active wound care products have opened an array of opportunities for the wound care market. However, factors such as high costs of wound care products may restrain growth of this market.
Countries such as China, India, Australia, Japan, and Brazil are expected to serve as new revenue pockets for the wound care market in the coming five years.
