Increasing Incidence of Chronic Wound to Promote Growth

According to the data by D-Foot International, 1 in 7 patients suffering from diabetes develop a foot ulcer. The increasing prevalence of chronic wounds has led to the high medical expenditure cost incurred by patients worldwide. This presents a lucrative opportunity for the market players to strengthen their position by introducing advanced bioactive therapies. These therapies aid in effective wound healing, even in late-stage wounds. Therefore, they are gaining prominence across healthcare settings. For instance, in July 2019, Israel-based company, Nanomedic announced the launch of a device, Spincare. The device is a medical gun that helps to spray nanofiber to treat chronic wounds and burns. Such factors are expected to bode well for the global wound care market growth in the forthcoming years.
