High Cost of Advanced Wound Care Products to Restrain Global Market Expansion
According to the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) statistics, an estimated 450,000 – 500,000 patients suffer from burn injuries each year in the U.S. The direct costs of treatment of burn injuries in the U.S., was estimated to be around US$ 10.4 Bn. Wounds impose underappreciated burden on the population across the globe and they account for the majority of injuries related to skin. Rise in the prevalence of diabetes and obesity, and increasing adoption rate for wound care therapy devices in developed and emerging markets are likely to fuel the uptake of wound healing products by 2025. However, high price of newly launched and technologically advanced wound care products restricts their demand. Conventional wound healing products are preferred over technologically advanced costly dressings in the emerging economies, despite their slow healing process. The price sensitive market of developing nations thus restricts the growth of advanced wound management technologies, which in turn has attributed for devaluation of the market, thereby restraining growth of global wound healing market.
