Market Overview:

The global foam dressing market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the foam dressing market can be attributed to the increasing incidence of chronic wounds and postoperative wounds, rising demand for advanced wound care products, and growing awareness about advanced wound care products. The adhesive foam dressing segment is expected to dominate the global foam dressing market in terms of revenue share during the forecast period. This segment is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2018 to 2030 due to its high adoption rates across various applications such as acute wounds, postoperative wounds, and chronic wounds.

Global Foam Dressing Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A foam dressing is a type of wound dressing that is composed of an open-cell foam material. Foam dressings are often used to treat wounds that are exudating (leaking fluid). The open-cell structure of the foam helps to absorb and collect the leaking fluid, which helps to promote healing. Foam dressings can also be helpful in protecting against infection, as they create a barrier between the wound and the environment.

Adhesive Foam Dressing:

Adhesive foam dressing is a type of wound care dressing used for the treatment of chronic and acute wounds. It helps in maintaining a moist environment around the wound which further helps in promoting healing. The major factor driving this market is increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and other autoimmune diseases coupled with rising demand for rapid wound healing products.

Non-Adhesive Foam Dressing:

Non-adhesive foam dressing is a type of wound care dressing used for the treatment of chronic wounds. It helps in maintaining a moist environment around the wound and provides protection from skin to skin contact. The product also prevents exudation (release) from the wound which further helps in healing it faster.

The major advantage associated with this type of foam dressing is that it allows easy removal of waste products such as cellular debris, protein,.

Application Insights:

The acute wounds segment dominated the global foam dressing market in 2017. The segment is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing cases of burns and trauma across the globe. According to WHO, around 60% of deaths occur due to injuries every year. In addition, according to a study published in 2018 by NCBI, it is estimated that around 59% of adults are injured at least once during their lifetime while 35% suffer from an injury each year in U.S., resulting in more than 2 million emergency department visits annually with an estimated cost of USD 25 billion dollars. These factors indicate a high potential for product demand globally over the forecast period which will contribute towards segment growth during the study period.

The chronic wounds segment is anticipated register moderate penetration rate during the forecast years due primarily on lack of awareness among consumers about available treatment options.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017 owing to the presence of well-established healthcare infrastructure, high patient awareness levels coupled with relatively higher healthcare spending in this region. In addition, quick adoption of technologically advanced products for wound dressing is also a major factor driving the regional market.

Asia Pacific is expected to be one of the fastest growing regions over the forecast period due to rising medical tourism and increasing per capita income and expenditure on healthcare in emerging countries such as China and India. Growing medical tourism industry coupled with improving healthcare facilities will also drive demand for acute care hospitals which will further propel growth during the forecast period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing incidence of chronic wounds: The global prevalence of chronic wounds is estimated to be around 6.5%. This number is expected to grow in the coming years due to the increasing aging population and rising rates of diabetes and obesity. This will create a larger pool of patients for foam dressings, driving market growth.
  • Rising demand for advanced wound care products: With the advent of new technologies and therapies, there is an increasing demand for advanced wound care products such as foam dressings. This trend will continue in the future, boosting market growth.
  • Growing awareness about wound care: There is a growing awareness among people about proper wound care techniques, which is driving the demand for better-quality foam dressings products. As a result, this segment is projected to experience high growth in the coming years.
