Drivers: North America Advanced Wound Care Market

The major factors contributing to the growth of the market includes factors such as rising aging and geriatric population, technological advancement in advanced wound care dressings products, increased number of surgical procedures, rising incidence of diabetes and government support for promoting advanced wound care products.


Ageing population and chronic diseases such as diabetes, peripheral vascular disease is becoming common. Skin breakdown with ulcer and chronic wound formation is a frequent consequence of these diseases. . Advanced wound care dressings products have been developed for treating wound due to the various types of ulcers such as pressure ulcers, vascular ulcers, and neuropathic ulcers. The dressing products include films, hydro gel dressings, foams, hydro fibers, and composite and alginate dressings.

  • Approximately 70.0% of all pressure ulcers occur in the geriatric population due to decreased level of water content, strength, and integrity between the dermis and the epidermis.
  • According to Coloplast, the chances of wounds were higher in older patients than younger patients. The main categories of wounds were highly recorded in the patients falling above 81 years of age group, with the exception of surgical wounds and burns, which were approximately evenly distributed over the entire age range of 81 years.
  • Out of the main wound types surgical wounds and venous leg ulcers were recorded in significant numbers in patients below the age of 75.


The key players are emphasizing developing innovative wound care dressings products with high properties of absorption, hydration and antibacterial activity. The new developments have lead to a shift from simple dressings to more advanced devices and products.

The demand for efficient and cost-effective use of resources to optimize wound care is rising as governments in the countries race to cut costs, while maintaining quality of care and improving treatment outcomes.

  • For instance, in 2016, Convatec Group launched the Avelle System in the disposable NPWT segment, which makes their entry into this fast-growing segment of the advanced wound care dressings market
  • In 2012, Smith & Nephew launched Allevyn Life, which is a new wound care product. The device aids in dressing retention and to hold the dressing in place.


The use of dressings impregnated with antimicrobial agents has been studied in the context of surgical wounds where heavy microbial contamination has resulted in delayed wound healing and/or infection. Studies have illustrated the efficacy of these dressings in reducing both preexisting microbial burden within the wound site, as well as preventing bacterial penetration through the dressings.

  • Patient whose system has already been stressed by chronic illness, especially diabetes, localized infection, or debilitating injuries will heal more slowly and will be more vulnerable to post surgical wound complications.
  • According to wound care Canada, open surgical wounds are a significant health issue, and surgical site infections are the third leading cause of hospital-acquired infections in Canada. Patients with more challenging illnesses and more complex surgical procedures have all contributed to an increase in surgical site infections.
