Pandemic Plunged Market with Low Patient Visits and Disrupted Supply Chain
The COVID-19 pandemic had a detrimental impact on the medical device industry, including chronic wound care segments, as non-essential procedures and healthcare services were reduced. Temporary closures of hospitals and clinics resulted in a decrease in patient visits for wound care. The disrupted supply chain and the need for professional assistance further affected the demand for wound products. Major players such as Smith & Nephew also experienced a decline in revenue from wound care products, such as a 5.1% decrease in their advanced wound management segment in 2020 compared to 2019.
Advanced Oxygen Therapy Inc. Receives NMPA Approval for Innovative Diabetic Ulcer Treatment
Advanced Oxygen Therapy Inc. achieved approval from the Chinese National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) for its product "cyclically pressurized Topical Wound Oxygen (TWO2) therapy" in March 2022. This therapy is specifically designed for the treatment of diabetic ulcers in patients.
Innovative Foam Dressings and R&D Investments Drive Growth in Market
Market players' investments in research and development, coupled with the introduction of innovative wound healing products, such as foam dressings, are projected to drive the uptake of advanced chronic wound care products, particularly for the effective treatment of conditions such as diabetic foot ulcers. As an example, in October 2021, Healthium Medtech Limited launched TRUSHIELD NXT, a surgical wound dressing featuring patented infection prevention technology and a 3D hydrocellular substrate, aimed at enhancing wound healing outcomes.
However, lack of comprehensive reimbursement policies and inadequate healthcare infrastructure may stifle the chronic wound care market growth.
