Shifts in Product Usage in Wound Management, 2012 to 2021

1 Mins read

Wound management is a field and an industry in a constant state of flux. With so many different technologies involved in addressing wounds, from the chronic to the acute, with technologies from the very well established to the cutting-edge new, the balance of product utilization (and manufacturer revenues) is a constantly moving target.

Wound management is a field and an industry in a constant state of flux. With so many different technologies involved in addressing wounds, from the chronic to the acute, with technologies from the very well established to the cutting-edge new, the balance of product utilization (and manufacturer revenues) is a constantly moving target.

Traditional wound dressings — simple gauze or other inert bandages — represent a huge existing market by virtue of their broad clinical utility and well established presence in the market (literally, centuries), while novel technologies like growth factors, which have just begun to demonstrate their potential to accelerate healing and/or solve the vexing problem of chronic wounds, have not really begun to penetrate clinical practice and generate substantial caseloads, yetBetween the extremes is a continuous range of products across the spectrum from the established to the novel.

Below is illustrated the 2012 to 2021 shift in the balance of the global wound management products market for the specific product types. The aggregate market is growing over this period at a respectable +7% CAGR, but that aggregate rate belies the individual segment rates ranging from a low of under 2% to a high of over 27%. That makes these share values all the more intriguing.

About author
I serve the interests of medical technology company decision-makers, venture-capitalists, and others with interests in medtech producing worldwide analyses of medical technology markets for my audience of mostly medical technology companies (but also rapidly growing audience of biotech, VC, and other healthcare decision-makers). I have a small staff and go to my industry insiders (or find new ones as needed) to produce detailed, reality-grounded analyses of current and potential markets and opportunities. I am principally interested in those core clinical applications served by medical devices, which are expanding to include biomaterials, drug-device hybrids and other non-device technologies either competing head-on with devices or being integrated with devices in product development. The effort and pain of making every analysis global in scope is rewarded by my audience's loyalty, since in the vast majority of cases they too have global scope in their businesses. Specialties: Business analysis through syndicated reports, and select custom engagements, on medical technology applications and markets in general/abdominal/thoracic surgery, interventional cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery, patient monitoring/management, wound management, cell therapy, tissue engineering, gene therapy, nanotechnology, and others.
