Burn Care Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global burn care market is estimated to be worth USD 2.98 Billion by 2027 from USD 2.14 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 6.89% during the forecast period.

Burns is a global public health problem, accounting for an estimated 265 000 deaths annually. Most of these deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries, and almost half occur in the WHO South-East Asia Region. The burn severity depends on the size and injury depth. Burn care includes degrees such as first, second, and third, and the management depends on the degree.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global burn care market:

In the last two years, coronavirus has negatively impacted the burn care market and affected the market's overall growth rate. The outbreak has spread to many countries worldwide, and the number of cases has increased drastically in just a few weeks. This leads to the postponement of the non-emergency treatment. In addition, the guidelines released by the government have instructed all the health workers like doctors, nurses, and caretakers to take care of emergency cases only, which affected the burn care market. 

In addition, the nationwide lockdown has also restricted people in their homes, reducing the incidences of burning, leading to declining burn care demand. Additionally, the manufacturing units and supply chain faced difficulties due to the shutdown of production processes worldwide. 

Besides this, in the light of the situation, many key players shifted their production base in generating healthcare products vital at some point of the pandemic which resulted in the decline of burn care products and devices. Therefore, the players are revamping the market by taking the best measures to ensure a constant supply of burn care products. 


increased burn incidences, growing expenditure in healthcare, favorable government initiatives, and expanding awareness regarding treatment options are majorly driving the global burn care market growth.

Burns and emergency canters are significantly increasing throughout the globe. According to the US FDA, nearly 40,000 people are hospitalized yearly due to partial burns. Additionally, the growing demand for skin grafts and their substitutes, full accessibility of traditional burn care products, and the acquisition of advanced burn care products further fuel the burn care market.

Increasing demand for minimally invasive surgery, technological advances in burn treatment products, and increased patient awareness of burn treatment and management are key factors driving the growth of the global burn care market. In addition, increasing demand for skin grafts and their alternatives, wide availability of traditional burn treatment products, and increased acceptance of advanced burn treatment products contribute to market growth. Furthermore, through constant efforts by governments and regulators and information on the Internet, public awareness of the various options for treating burns in both homes and healthcare facilities is increasing, which is expected to contribute significantly to market growth. 

In many developed countries, burn death rates have been declining. However, the rate of child deaths from burns is currently over seven times higher in developing and emerging countries than in developed countries. Burn injuries continue to cause sickness and mortality globally. Despite collaborations and preventative measures, many cases are reported in many countries. The treatment of these patients is often protracted and requires extensive resources. The adequate revival of these patients, coupled with scrupulous wound care, can significantly impact their outcomes.


However, the high costs associated with burn treatment are expected to impede the growth of the burn treatment market. The hospital stays are generally longer, and hospital charges are higher, especially in the case of 2nd and 3rd burns. For example, according to the American Burn Association of the United States, 2017, 40 to 60% of burn survivors have a median length of stay of 54 days, and a median hospitalization cost is $ 780,000 per patient per year. For more severe injuries, these costs can be even higher.

Based on end-users, the hospital segment accounts for the largest share in the market with the increasing incidence of burn injuries and advancements in burn care products and treatments. As the number of burns and hospitalizations increases yearly, the hospital sector had the highest share of sales in 2021 at 41.3%. Rising burn rates are expected to burn market growth.

Burn Care Market - By Region:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America
  • The Middle East and Africa

Regionally, the North American burn care market held the majority share of the global burn treatment market in 2021. It accounted for a share of 52%, and it is anticipated to continue its dominance during the forecast period. According to a report by the American Burn Association, more than 300 children are treated daily in the emergency room in the United States, and about two children die from burns. The U.S. is likely to register significant growth due to growing awareness, high healthcare expenditure, and technological advancements in the healthcare sector.

The burn care market in Europe accounted for a substantial share of the global market in 2021 and is estimated to register a healthy CAGR during the forecast period. In Europe, favorable government initiatives, awareness of treatment options, the growing occurrence rate of burns, and the increasing amount spent on healthcare favor the market. As a result, Germany is expected to lead the European market. In contrast, the UK is estimated to grow at the fastest growth rate due to the vast patient population being treated in outpatient clinics and depending on the severity of the patients' burns.

The Asia Pacific burn care market is estimated to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. The regional market growth is fuelled by supportive government policies, a growing population, and the improving healthcare infrastructure. The supportive government policies boost the market; for instance, the Government of India introduced the National Burn Prevention, Treatment and Rehabilitation Program (NPPMRBI) in India. The program is run by the State Medical College and Country Hospital to reduce burn incidence, morbidity, mortality, and disability.

The burn care market in Latin America is likely to have a steady growth rate during the forecast period. On the other hand, growing accidental events in home surroundings and the rising incidence rate of burns boosts the Asia Pacific market. However, the lack of knowledge in children under 15 is one of the key factors restraining the market. Based on the region, Brazil is predicted to have the highest share in the burn care market and is estimated to have a high CAGR of growth.

The Burn care market in the Middle East & Africa is estimated to project sluggish growth during the forecast period. Favorable government policies and increasing healthcare expenditure are majorly propelling the burn care market in this region. Moreover, in sub-Saharan Africa, burns are widespread and considered one of the primary healthcare problems. Therefore, in Africa, the growth is due to government spending on burn care products and treatments in this region.
