In this report, Technavio highlights the increasing demand for combination dressings as one of the key emerging trends driving the global advanced wound care market:
Increasing demand for combination dressings
Antimicrobial agents such as silver, iodine, and honey are gradually becoming popular in the global advanced wound care market. Many advanced wound dressings have been incorporating antimicrobial agents to improve the outcomes of wound treatments. These dressings comprise of two or more types of chemical and physical properties to certify optimum functionality. These dressings are versatile and convenient to use in both partial and full-thickness wounds. Several end-users are increasingly choosing combination dressings because of their various advantages such as easy availability and ease-of-use. These dressings combine physically distinct components into a single dressing to provide multiple wound care functions such as absorption, adhesion, and protection from bacteria.
“Silver alginate, silver collagen, silver hydrogel, and silver hydrofiber dressings are the most commonly used combination dressings for burn treatment. Silver agents are combined into fibers to create highly absorbent alginate wound dressings that have microbial properties. The antimicrobial efficacy of silver combined with the highly absorbent characteristics of alginate assist in reducing the wound's microbial bioburden. These dressings help prevent bacterial infection in chronic wounds,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on orthopedics and medical devices.
Hydrogel dressings are also being combined with silver microbial agents. These dressings absorb a small amount of wound exudate and provide moisture in the wound site, thereby preventing infections. A hydrofiber dressing containing silver is also administered in conjunction with a hyaluronan gel containing zinc to promote wound healing, protect against infections, and create a suitable environment for wound healing.
