However, unfavorable reimbursement scenarios in some countries and the high cost of advanced wound dressings might restrain the growth of the market. The global wound dressings market has a significant opportunity to grow with the development of combination dressings.
On the basis off type of wound dressing, the global wound dressings market has been segmented into advanced and traditional wound dressings. Traditional wound dressings have been further divided into wound closure products, basic wound care, and anti-infective dressings. The demand for basic wound care was the highest in 2013. During the forecast period, anti-infective dressings including iodine-based dressings and plant-based antiseptic dressings are expected to witness increased demand.
