The wound dressings market is projected to reach USD 11,273.7 million by 2025 from USD 7,091.2 million in 2020, at a CAGR of 9.7%.

The growth of this market is majorly driven by the rising incidence of burn injuries; increasing incidence of chronic, surgical, and traumatic wounds; high rate of cesarean sections in elderly women; and the growing number of road accidents. However, the high cost of advanced wound dressings and the risk factors associated with wound dressings are expected to restrain the growth of this market.

Advanced wound dressings segment accounted for the largest share of the wound dressings market, by type, in 2019

Based on type, the wound dressings market is segmented into traditional wound dressings and advanced wound dressings. The advanced wound dressings segment accounted for the largest share of the wound dressings market, by type, in 2019. This can be attributed to an increase in the incidence of diseases such as diabetic ulcers, venous ulcers, and pressure ulcers. The increasing incidence of diabetes, growing patient awareness, and the rising occurrence of HAIs are also expected to drive the growth of this segment.

Surgical and traumatic wounds segment accounted for the largest share of the wound dressings market, by wound type, in 2019

Based on wound type, the wound dressings market has been segmented into surgical and traumatic wounds, diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, venous leg ulcers, and burns, and other wounds. The large share of this segment can be attributed to the growing prevalence of diabetes and the increasing number of surgical procedures performed.

Hospitals, ASCs, and clinics segment accounted for the largest share of the wound dressings market, by end-user, in 2019

Based on end-users, the wound dressings market is segmented into hospitals, ASCs, and clinics; home care settings; and other end users. The hospitals, ASCs, and clinics segment accounted for the largest share of the wound dressings market in 2019. This can be attributed to the rising geriatric population and the subsequent increase in the prevalence of age-related conditions and a large number of treatment procedures carried out in hospitals.

North America will continue to dominate the wound dressings market during the forecast period

In 2019, North America accounted for the largest share of the wound dressings market, followed by Europe. The large share of this market can be attributed to the increasing incidence of chronic wounds, rising healthcare expenditure, and the presence of major market players in this region.
