Global hydrogel dressings market: Increasing prevalence of acute and chronic wounds

Increasing incidence of acute wounds, traumatic wounds, and chronic wounds are estimated to increase the demand for hydrogel dressings. Approximately, 10-20 out of every 1000 individuals in developed countries will experience a chronic wound in their lifetime. Pressure ulcers are chronic wounds which are caused by unrelieved pressure on the skin and can develop over the hip, shoulder, and back. Pressure ulcers appear as an abrasion, persisting redness of the skin, and blisters that can be treated using hydrogel dressings.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio, “The global diabetic population is estimated to increase from 414 million in 2017 to approximately 485 million by 2025. Nearly 150 out of every 1000 patients with diabetes will have a diabetic foot ulcer, which is a chronic wound. 15%-25% of diabetes patients develop diabetic foot ulcers in their lifetime. Also, according to the CDC, more than one in 10 nursing home residents in the US suffer from pressure ulcers, which is again a form of chronic wound. These chronic wounds require treatment using hydrogel dressings. Thus, the demand for hydrogel dressings is expected to increase, which in turn will drive the growth of the global hydrogel dressings market.”
