In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the increasing prevalence of acute and chronic wounds as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global NPWT market:
Increasing prevalence of acute and chronic wounds
Globally, there is an increasing prevalence of acute and chronic wounds such as those caused by burns or venous and diabetic ulcers among others. It is estimated that globally, 250 million-350 million acute wounds are treated every year.
Globally, more than five million patients seek medical help for burns annually. Burns account for more than 200,000 deaths every year. The majority of these occur in low and middle-income countries, especially in regions such as Southeast Asia. The prevalence of burn injuries is significantly high even in developed countries such as the US.
Surgical and traumatic wounds comprise of abrasions, punctures, lacerations, and incisions, while chronic wounds include venous ulcers, diabetic ulcers, and pressure ulcers, which are a significant burden on patients, healthcare professionals, and the healthcare system. Diabetic ulcers are responsible for most of the foot and leg amputations in the US. Venous ulceration is the most common type of leg ulceration. It is estimated that on an average, approximately 17.5 million diabetic patients globally develop foot ulcers every year. Approximately, 8 million-9 million pressure ulcers occur in hospitals every year.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for orthopedics and medical devices research, “The increasing global prevalence of acute wounds such as surgical and traumatic wounds and chronic wounds is expected to drive the market during the forecast period. The introduction of portable NPWT devices and single-use NPWT devices facilitates the early discharge of patients from hospitals and allows them to continue with the required care in outpatient settings.”
