Rising prevalence of chronic diseases & related wounds and increasing number of traumatic injuries are the critical factors attributed to the market expansion.       

An increase in chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cancer, and other autoimmune disorders is burdening the healthcare system across the region. Chronic diseases directly impact the body's natural ability to heal. Diabetes and immunodeficiency conditions are among the most detrimental conditions that can slow wound repair. Diabetes is the chronic disease most identified and associated as a risk factor for hospital-acquired and facility pressure injuries. Diabetes impacts the immune system, making infections more common and complicating wound healing. It is one of the most significant global health emergencies of the 21st century. The prolonged healing process due to chronic diseases leads to a long-term need for wound dressings, resulting in high demand for them. Moreover, the increased prevalence of cancer has fueled the number of interventions performed. As a result, wound dressings are used more often to prevent postoperative wound infections. Most surgical wounds after cancer surgery are large and deep, resulting in exudate that requires frequent management. Advanced wound dressings, such as hydrogels, alginates, and foams, help with wound management and infection prevention. As a result, the rise in the incidence of chronic diseases is adding to the demand for wound care products, driving the market.
