DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Wound Dressings Market by Type (Advanced Wound Dressings, Traditional Wound Dressings), Application (Surgical Wounds, Ulcers, Burns), End User (Inpatient Facilities, Outpatient Facilities) - Global Forecast to 2021" report to their offering.
The global wound dressings market is expected to reach USD 8.46 Billion by 2021 from USD 6.31 Billion in 2016, at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2016 to 2021.
In advanced wound dressings, the foam dressings segment is estimated to be valued highest in 2016, and is projected to continue holding largest share throughout the forecast period. Europe is the major market for this segment. The high share of foam dressings segment is attributed to increasing patient awareness regarding advanced wound products, increasing incidences of diabetes, and increase in aged population.
Alginate dressings are biodegradable, reduce pain, and keep the tissues moist during healing. Alginate dressings help in the absorption of wound exudates and form a gel-like covering over the wound, which further aids in retention of moisture. The alginate has the capacity to absorb 20 times its weight in exudates and facilitates the process of autolytic debridement. These advantages of alginates over other dressings are expected to drive the growth of alginates segment at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
