Pressure Ulcer Treatment Market Overview

The Pressure Ulcer Treatment Market was estimated at USD 4,493.75 million in 2021. The market is predicted to grow to USD 6,375.58 million in 2027, with an increase of 6.24 per cent from 2022 to 2027.

Pressure ulcers, also known as pressure sores or bedsores are injuries to the skin and tissues, primarily due to prolonged pressure on the skin. Pressure ulcers vary in severity, ranging from small patches of skin discoloration to open wounds exposing muscles or bone beneath. The elderly population is more susceptible to developing pressure ulcers, commonly called bedsores. The proportion of people 60 years or older has been steadily increasing over the past few years in all regions and is expected to increase in the years ahead.

In addition, the rising number of prominent players on the Pressure Ulcer Treatment Market and the active investment by these companies in the research and development of innovative pressure ulcer treatment products for wound healing are essential factors driving the market. For example, in January 2020, the company ConvaTec Group PLC announced the launch of ConvaMax, the new superabsorber wound dressing widely employed in managing wounds that are highly exuding, such as pressure ulcers, leg ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers and surgical wounds that have dehisced.

Also, in November 2021, Sanara MedTech Inc.. announced the launch of two innovative additional cellular matrix devices (FORTIFY TRGTM Tissue Repair Graft and FORTIFY FLOWABLETM Extracellular Matrix) in collaboration and Cook Biotech Inc. Therefore, the launch of such advanced technologies will boost the need for products for wound healing. So, technological advances in wound healing and the growth of the elderly population are the primary drivers of the Pressure Ulcer Treatment Market.

Key Market Trends

Foam dressings contain semipermeable polyurethane materials that are used for wound treatment. Foam dressings are both adhesive and non-adhesive dressings that are suitable for skin graft procedures, surgical and burned wounds, lacerations, abrasions, peristomal wounds, and leg ulcers.

Foam dressings are an effective method for healing wounds in moist conditions. They are particularly beneficial in preventing trauma caused by dressings, managing exuding wounds, and relieving pain and discomfort. The foam dressings are constructed of semipermeable polyurethane. This means they are not linting and adhere to the skin and, therefore, are more suitable for wounds with bleeding.

The dressing prevents water vapors from getting in but also contains bacteria and other toxins. The foam’s outer layer dressing is typically created to be waterproof or hydrophobic.

The advances in technology in foam dressing drive the Pressure Ulcer Treatment Market segment’s expansion. For instance, as per the article that was published in Mathematical Problems in Engineering in April 2021 and titled “IOT Implantable Medical Devices Assisted with Foam Dressing for the prevention of pressure sores when undergoing Operation,” foam dressings will reduce the incidence of pressure sores as well as the possibility of developing pressure ulcers, which can be as high as 30 per cent.

Compared with an untreated pressure sore in the past, it is believed that the Internet of Things (IoT) will enhance the effectiveness of foam dressings and decrease the chance of developing a sore by about 7 per cent. Therefore, the effectiveness of foam dressings in treating ulcers caused by pressure is likely to increase the demand. Accessibility and availability of the latest foam dressing are expected to increase in the market.

Foam dressings are widely utilized to treat pressure ulcers. They are likely to propel the market. According to the research article in February 2020 released in The Journal of Wound Care, it was proven that the use of foam dressings could be a practical and cost-effective option compared to the standard prevention for treating pressure ulcers acquired in hospitals (PU).

Furthermore, as per the study published in October 2020 that was titled “Effects on Multilayer Silicone Foam Dressings in the prevention of pressure ulcers in Patients with High Risk of Developing Pressure Ulcers In a Randomized Clinical Trial”, It was found that the use of multilayer silicone dressings can stop pressure ulcers from the sacrum and the coccyx for patients who suffer from persistent diarrhoea, or with fragile skin.

In addition, market players are regularly making new foam dressings available, stimulating the market’s growth. In November 2020, Advanced Medical Solutions (AMS) were a surgical and advanced wound-care specialist firm that has received CE mark approval and USFDA certification for the silicone PHMB Foam Dressing to treat different like diabetic foot ulcers, among other wounds.

This is due to the increasing use of foam dressings; along with the regular product launches, this Pressure Ulcer Treatment Market is predicted to expand significantly over the forecast time.
