The process of wound dressing has remained traditional until recently when modern science discovered that moisture and proper aeration is imperative for the adequate growth of underlying epidermal or endoderm cells. Researchers have revealed that moisture and aeration not only helps the wound to heal faster by aiding to the growth of new cells, but also decreases discomfort to a certain degree. The requirement for wound dressing is now not only limited to trauma patients or household accidental cases, but also includes diabetic geriatrics who commonly suffer from ulcerative complications.

Skin ulcers and tissue necrosis are among the leading concerns in the rural areas of emerging economies and diabetic population globally. This and several other factors are poised to act as drivers in the global market for wound dressing which was valued at US$7.53 bn in 2013. Expanding at a healthy CAGR of 4.5% from 2014 to 2020, the global market for wound dressing is estimated to value US$10.16 bn by the end of the forecast period.

Traditional wound care dressings are further segmented into wound closure products, basic wound care, and anti-infective dressings. Amongst these, within traditional wound care dressings, the segment of basic wound care held the largest share in the market in 2013. This is because basic wound care products have experienced strong sales growth in emerging countries owing to them being easy to utilize. On the other hand, the segment of anti-infective dressings is predicted to experience the highest growth rate in the forecast horizon.
Advanced wound dressings are further segmented into films, foams, hydrofiber, hydrocolloids, collagen, and alginates. Amongst these, on the basis of revenue, the segment of foams emerged as the top segment in the market. This is due to the versatility of foams in terms of healing and applicability and their easy availability in stores. This segment is also expected to experience the highest growth rate in the forecast horizon. The segments of hydrofiber and hydrocolloids are also expected to exhibit an impressive growth rate in the forecast horizon. On the other hand, the segments of collagens, films, alginates, and hydrogels are poised to experience sluggish growth in the coming years.
Geographically, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW). In 2013, Asia Pacific led the wound dressings market, while RoW exhibited the highest growth rate in traditional wound dressings and is anticipated to maintain its superiority in traditional wound dressings all through the forecast horizon. This is owing to the presence of price-sensitive markets in the region and low adoption rate of advanced wound dressing technologies owing to low literacy levels. On the other hand, North America, led by the U.S., emerged as the largest market for advanced wound dressings on the basis of revenue and Asia Pacific experienced the swiftest growth and is predicted to lead the global market for wound dressings in the coming years. This is due to the increasing social awareness and the rising number of diabetic patients in the region.
