"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
Wound management is one of the most critical concerns in any healthcare environment. Gelling Fibres are now preferred in wound care instead of the traditional alginate fibers. Gelling fibers are soft, comfortable, non-woven absorbent wound covers which help in managing the drainage as well as removal of damaged, dead and infected tissues from the wound. The wound fluid is absorbed by the gelling fiber dressing, resulting in the formation of a gel which facilitates in maintaining a moist environment required for wound healing and creation of new tissues.
Gelling Fibres are capable of retaining and controlling the exudate level, which reduces the risk of peri-wound maceration and any other infections. Unlike other dressing fibers, gelling fibers can conform to the varying wound shapes and can be removed in one piece. Emerging government guidelines, strategic collaborations and new product introduction have resulted in a huge upsurge in the global gelling fiber market. In May 2018, FDA granted marketing approval to SURECELL, a gelling fiber product for wound care developed by Jiangsu Newvalue Medical Products Co., Ltd., which is expected to favor the global gelling fiber market.

The growth of the global gelling fibers market is being driven by the increase in the prevalence of lacerations, post-operative surgical injuries & other types of wounds, and the introduction of new and advanced products. According to the National Centre for Injury Prevention and Control, the percentage contribution of injuries to total years of potential life lost before the age of 75 was 23.1%, in 2015. This increase in the number of injuries or wounds, in turn, implies growth in global gelling fibers market.
The availability of alternative products of dressing such as foams and alginate dressings, and the requirement of another secondary dressing while using gelling fibers are the factors hampering the growth in global gelling fibers market.
