Europe Advanced Wound Care Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The size of the European advanced wound care market is estimated to be worth USD 4.01 billion by 2029 and USD 3.2 billion in 2024, growing at a CAGR of 4.63% during the forecast period.

The increasing number of surgical procedures for chronic diseases in the European region is driving the European advanced wound care market growth. The increasing number of surgeries in Europe is due to the availability of affordable and accessible treatment options in Europe, which is further leading to the incidence of surgery wounds and infections with an increase in chronic diseases. In addition, sophisticated treatments such as NPWT are contributing to the growth of the advanced wound care market in Europe. Most of the surgical techniques are developing wound infections, severe bleeding, and tissue damage, which need wound care. According to an article published in 2021, German Heart Surgery Report: German Society for Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery Department annual registry update stated 29,444 isolated coronary artery bypass grafting procedures, 35,470 isolated heart valve procedures, and 858 assist device implantations were registered in Germany. Using advanced wound care products with antimicrobial agents will help speed the healing process by reducing bacterial contamination and infection.

The growth of the European advanced wound care market is further driven by the growing public awareness of its advantages. A research paper published in 2021, "Wound Antiseptics and European Guidelines for Antiseptic Application in Wound Treatment," stated that chronic wound infections afflict around 1.5% of people, and issues with wound healing are high. 

Technological advancements and the launch of novel products are further supporting the growth of the European advanced wound care market. The introduction of novel compounds for absorption, hydration, and antibacterial activity, along with research and development in advanced wound care, prompted the market share and is estimated to drive the European advanced wound care market in the forecast period. This helped convert simple dressing methods to advanced ones and increased demand for products with pharmaceutical active ingredients. 

The increasing prevalence of diabetes and associated chronic diseases is expected to significantly impact the advanced wound care market, propelling it during the forecast period. The increasing government initiatives for providing better-advanced wound care in emerging areas are expected to create lucrative opportunities for market growth. The new launches by manufacturers are expected to promote opportunities for market expansion during the forecast period.

On the other hand, the high cost of advanced wound care products is hampering the growth of the European advanced wound care market. The high price of chronic wound treatment products also hinders the market in emerging areas with low income. Due to cost variation, patients and physicians prefer inexpensive products. The reimbursement issues for the new technologies are expected to impede market growth. Adopting advanced wound care in less developed areas is challenging for market expansion. Due to cost and old beliefs, people in low-income areas prefer inexpensive treatment, and even medical professionals prescribe it. 

Impact of COVID-19 on the Europe advanced wound care market:

COVID-19 had a prominent impact on market expansion due to increased coronavirus cases in European regions, leading to strict lockdown regulations and travel restrictions. Many non-emergency surgeries are on hold to give immense care to the corona patients. The postponement of the surgeries negatively impacted the market growth. The government had taken the initiative to provide better-advanced wound care for the population. Antiseptics are primary compounds used in wound care management where only specific products are recommended by the Polish Society of Wound Treatment and the German Consensus on Wound Antiseptics during the pandemic. These initiatives supported the European advanced wound care market in the Pandemic situation.
