Introduction of hydroconductive dressing

A hydroconductive dressing is considered as a novel class product. It offers a capillary action that lifts and transfers exudate and remains away from the wound surface level. This action allows the covering to lift, hold, and transfer the wound exudate both horizontally and vertically into the covering, where it can absorb 500% of its weight. The hydroconductive action scatters the contents of the covering and allows extra hydroconductive layers to be used for more seriously exuding wounds. The bandage also provides hydroconductive debridement that lifts and releases adherent slough not absorbed into the dressing, letting it move toward the dressing for easy removal when the dressing is changed. The introduction of new class of hydroconductive dressings can help in the removal of biofilm and overall wound healing.

“With the rise in prevalence of lifestyle diseases, the incidence of chronic wounds such as venous leg ulcer, diabetic foot ulcer, and pressure ulcer is increasing globally, leading to increased demand for advanced wound care therapies for their effective treatment,” says Neha.

Targeting emerging economies

Companies are focusing on emerging nations to expand their global distribution network as they have already established a strong foothold in developed nations. The spend on healthcare is increasing in the emerging nations, and numerous initiatives are being taken up by the government to address the various unmet healthcare needs of these regions.

Key vendors are increasing their reach by acquiring small players who already have an established distribution network in the region. Such acquisitions help the key vendors to increase their presence in the region and gain more market share.

Continuous innovation and a strong R&D pipeline

Vendors are focusing on developing new products which would help them increase productivity, refine processes, and better leverage their resources and expertise. These companies are focusing on delivering new products and business models that improve clinical results across geographies and patient groups.

They are relying on new technologies and R&D to identify new support projects that will make a meaningful difference to the customers. They are developing new bioactive products for wound management. Crab shell bandages and vacuum-esque bandages are the recent developments in wound management.
