Bioactive Wound Care Market Size, Segmentation, Opportunities, Trends, Growth and Industry Forecast To 2023

Conventional wound healing is unproductive in healing acute wounds such as deep cuts, burn injuries, and chronic ulcers. The introduction of bioactive wound care products has efficiently provided a solution to treat such critical wounds and injuries. Bioactive wound dressings control infection, hasten the healing process, reduce the risk of leakage, and alleviate pain and discomfort. Materials such as chitosan, alginates, keratin, hydrocolloids, and collagen are often the key constituents of bioactive wound dressings. Bioactive wound care is a new, yet flourishing market, where phenomenal demand for these products is being witnessed across both developed and developing markets.

In the overall bioactive wound dressings market, the demand for antimicrobial wound dressings is currently the highest due to their ability to fight infections and thus hasten the healing process. Antimicrobial dressings are being widely used in burn treatment. Some of the most common antimicrobial dressings used are silver-coated dressings and cadexomer dressings. Novel antimicrobial products, including activated charcoal and polyhexamethylene biguanide hydrochloride, serve better for patients allergic to silver. Hence, growing adoption of antimicrobial dressings will drive the overall market for bioactive wound dressings. Some other prominent drivers of this market include the augmenting senescent patient pool and the high prevalence of diabetic ulcers. Negative pressure wound dressings, semi-permeable, transparent, and foam dressings are the chief competitors to bioactive wound care products.
