Global digital wound care management market is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% to reach market value of USD XXX million by 2026.
Digital wound measurement devices enable monitoring of wounds, such as chronic and diabetic wounds, which if not treated on time, takes prolong time to treat, and can lead to severe infections and eventually may lead to amputations. With inadequate wound care resulting in various debilitating healthcare-associated infections and adding to the cost burden of patients, digital wound measurement devices enable the imaging, measurement, and documenting of wounds by providing assessment of a wound in 3D with integration of EMR software. In turn letting appropriate drug doses to be delivered to speed up the healing process.
Rising prevalence of chronic wounds, technological advancements, number of surgeries, increasing patient awareness, health care expenditure and rising geriatric population drive the overall need for treatment of complex wounds are major factors driving the market.
Chronic wounds are a critical global issue believed to affect as much as two per cent of the population in developed countries, a number likely to increase as over aging, and conditions such as diabetes where the wounds lead to prolonged healing, become more prevalent. According to the U.S. National Institutes of Health, 2017, chronic wounds affect 6.5 million people in the U.S. and the numbers will likely increase. In 2017, an issued paper: chronic wounds in Australia, estimated the direct health care costs an average of US$2.85 billion a year for chronic wounds , which equates to approximately 2% of Australian national health care expenditure.
The global digital wound care management market, by wound type is sub-segmented into a diabetic ulcer, chronic wounds, burns, incisional, and traumatic wounds. Of which chronic wounds and diabetic ulcers are highly lucrative segments with the rising of geriatric population and diabetic patients. For instance, according to the Intermountain Healthcare, 2017, 6.5 million people in the US suffer from chronic wounds and according to American Diabetes Association,2015, 30.3 million Americans, or 9.4% of the population, had diabetes and approximately 1.25 million American children and adults have type 1 diabetes. The global prevalence of diabetic foot ulcer is 6.3%, and the prevalence in North America is 13%, Asia is 5.5%, Europe is 5.1%, Africa is 7.2% and Oceania is 3%
In terms of end-user, the global digital wound care management market is sub-segmented into hospitals & clinics, ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs), and others. In 2017 the hospitals & clinics segment held major share of the global market. The development of this segment can be credited to the accessibility to various better healthcare services, availability of different devices with advanced technology and tie-ups with health care companies. Due to rise in geriatric population and increasing health care infrastructure, in the others section, the home health care section is extending at a high rate, especially in developed economies. Moreover, rise in demand for advanced and cutting edge wound care management in home care settings for geriatric patients will also drive the segment.
In terms of region, the global advanced wound care management market has been segmented into five major regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and rest of the world.
North America is currently dominating the digital wound care market owing to the rising prevalence of chronic wounds and technological advancements in the healthcare sector. For instance, a rough population prevalence rate for chronic non-healing wounds in the United States is 2% of the general population and a conservative estimate of the cost of caring for these wounds exceeds $50 billion per year.
Asia-Pacific is to be the fastest growing region for the global digital wound measurement devices market, this is largely due to the rise in number of diabetic population across Asia-Pacific which is creating more opportunity for digital wound management devices market players. According to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) - Diabetes Atlas 8th Edition, 2017, an estimated 82 million adults (aged 20+ years) were living with diabetes in the IDF South-East Asia region, which equals to a regional prevalence of 8.5% and an estimated 158.8 million adults (aged 20+ years) were living with diabetes in the IDF Western Pacific region, which is a regional prevalence of 9.5%. According to the Asian Diabetes Prevention Initiative, 60% of the world diabetic population is in Asia.
