and are widely in use. The worldwide market for traditional wound management is expected to witness a moderate growth rate in terms of value owing to a rising geriatric population and increasing cases of burns and trauma across the globe.
Growing incidence of diabetic ulcers, an increasing geriatric population, sustainable demand for first aid and versatility of products, higher procurement by hospitals, and limited reimbursement for advanced wound management products are some of the key factors driving the growth of the global traditional wound management market. However, decreasing popularity of traditional wound management products due to adoption of alternative therapies such as advanced wound care, negative pressure wound therapy, and active wound management is likely to slow down the growth of the global traditional wound management market over the forecast period.
A high demand for low-frequency dressing change in acute care settings, high economic costs associated with wound care, and inconsistent research findings regarding the efficacy of traditional wound management products are some of the other major restraints likely to hamper market growth over the forecast period.
Greater access to primary healthcare services owing to a growing disposable income per capita, joint efforts by supply chain executives to increase efficiency (higher reimbursement for hospital supplies facilitated through cost sharing between key stakeholders across the value chain), and rising governmental support in the form of deeper collaborative research in developed economies is creating high potential growth opportunities for players operating in the global traditional wound management market. Rising popularity of non-woven gauzes in wound care and wound management activities owing to its virtually non-adherent and faster wicking ability; increasing focus by payers on patient care; growing consumption of wound care products due to a rise in the occurrence of diabetic ulcers and other chronic diseases; rapidly expanding outpatient wound care practices in ambulatory care centres; and the utilisation of traditional wound management products with innovative solutions are some of the key trends likely to shape the global traditional wound management market during the forecast period.
