Wound Care Management Devices Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The size of the global wound care management devices market is estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 3.8% during the forecast period. The market size is predicted to value USD 27.12 billion by 2029 from USD 22.50 billion in 2024.

Current Scenario of the Wound Care Management Devices Market

Injuries and wounds are common conditions that impact billions of individuals worldwide. The products are resistant to environmental inhibitors and particles, and a nurse supplies them under the direction and supervision of a physician for various reasons. To treat chronic wounds, wound care devices are available on the market. Accidents, burns, trauma, and natural disasters can all result in wounds. Chronic and acute wounds are the two forms of wounds that are commonly seen. Obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes are a few lifestyle diseases that can cause chronic wounds. Surgical or traumatic wounds, on the other hand, are acute wounds. Wound care treatment has used pharmacological drugs such as angiotensin-converting enzyme (A.C.E.) inhibitors, monoclonal antibodies, topical immunosuppressants, and xanthine oxidase inhibitors.


Factors such as increased cases of burns, increasing demand for anti-infective dressings, and rising prevalence of diabetic ulcers and foot ulcers propel the wound care management devices market.

In addition, the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) said that between 2 and 3% of the population in developed countries are expected to suffer chronic injury in their lifetime. Other factors responsible for the market's growth include technological advancements by significant players and increased awareness of the importance of wound care management.

Diabetes is the leading injury-causing illness, along with other chronic diseases, and in adults over 63, the diabetic population is over 27%. The incidence of chronic wounds, particularly foot ulcers, is increasing among the diabetic population. Besides, according to the 2020 report of the Federal Statistical Office of Germany, there are currently around 83 million inhabitants in Germany. Of these 16.4 million inhabitants, they are over 65 years old, which is expected to reach 22.5 million by 2050. As the number of older people is likely to increase soon, they are more prone to chronic diseases such as diabetes. This population is expected to experience skin ulcers shortly after diabetic foot, positively impacting the market. Therefore, the number of diabetic patients is anticipated to escalate with the rise in the geriatric population, stimulating the growth of wound care management devices during the prognostic period.

Furthermore, the growing focus of market participants to develop advanced wound care management devices due to increasing investments by the governments is anticipated to drive the wound care management devices market forward. Additionally, increasing product approvals and growing public and private companies funding are expected to promote the market’s growth rate. Further, the wound care management devices market is expected to be driven by pharmaceutical companies willing to invest in affordable wound care technologies due to chronic wounds' current financial burden. This growth is attributed to the changing preference of healthcare professionals for painless wound closure devices and the increased demand for minimally invasive therapies worldwide. Moreover, the increasing use of absorbable synthetic sutures in cosmetic surgeries is expected to drive market growth shortly. According to the International Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery data, approximately 11,061,134 cosmetic surgery procedures were performed worldwide in 2019.


However, the high cost of wound care products and strict government regulations for product approval are expected to impact the market's growth during the forecast period negatively. Due to the high cost of the devices, hospitals and clinics are seeking an alternative process for wound healing. Unfavorable reimbursement policies for developing wound care products and the experience of discomfort in several patients is a significant side effect of slowing down market growth in many regions, furthermore, Due to decreasing the quality of the products, which may result in an increase of side effects for the patients after using the devices, impede the market growth.

Impact Of COVID-19 On The Global Wound Care Management Devices Market

The new COVID-19 pandemic has been declared an emergency public health issue by the WHO. The pandemic has negatively impacted advanced wound care dressings and devices. Countries worldwide reallocated the resources such as hospital beds, nurses, and medical devices to manage COVID-19 patients. Healthcare providers have shifted to new models of care for chronic wounds, like telehealth platforms and consultations. Healthcare services like specialized wound care clinics and hospitals with wound care departments have been closed with the available number of hospital beds as they are used for COVID-19 patients. As per the statistics published by Tissue Analytics, Inc., an estimated 40% drop in inpatient visits in wound care centers during March and April 2020 compared to 2019. However, owing to the reduced impact of COVID-19 and the increasing adoption of new normalization, the global wound care management devices market is anticipated to showcase a healthy CAGR during the forecast period.

Global Wound Care Management Devices Market Analysis By Product

The therapy device segment is expected to dominate the global wound care management device market, owing to many product registrations and its advantages over traditional methods of promoting wound healing by hydration. These devices reduce the risk of infection at the wound site, thereby improving wound healing procedures.

The traditional segment is also expected to register a healthy CAGR during the forecast period. The medical tapes and the dressing sub-segment among the wound care segments have the highest market share. This dominance can be attributed to the comprehensive utilities of the segment. For instance, most people working in kitchens may have minor injuries while cooking due to hot and sharp utensils needing medical tapes to reduce pain and swelling. Additionally, people working in and outside industries have minor scratches on their skin on multiple occasions due to demanding and fast jobs.

Global Wound Care Management Devices Market  Analysis By Type of Wound

The burns segment is expected to be the most lucrative market segment based on the type of wound due to the higher frequency of burns. These can come from flames, vapors, or agents such as chemicals, tar, and electricity. The diabetic foot ulcer segment is estimated to increase at a significant CAGR over the prognosis period due to the increasing number of diabetic patients. They're more prone to foot ulcers. According to data published by the American Podiatric Medical Association, in 2020, about 17% of diabetic patients developed foot ulcers, of which about 7% were hospitalized due to other ulcer-related complications and infections. In addition, diabetes is one of the leading causes of non-traumatic lower-limb amputations in the United States, and about 15-25% are diabetic patients. Hence, increasing the diabetic population in the world is expected to boost the wound care management devices market for the diabetic foot ulcer segment.

Global Wound Care Management Devices Market  Analysis  By End User
