Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2033

Advanced Wound Care Market size is anticipated to reach USD 16 Billion by the end of 2033, growing at a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2033. In the year 2022, the industry size of advanced wound care was over USD 11 Billion. Increasing disorders among people across the globe that take a long time to heal, such as anemia, cancer, and diabetes, are fueling the market’s growth. Chronic diseases, lifestyle disorders, and other autoimmune conditions can cause wounds and injuries sustained to not heal properly or at all. For instance, anemia is a disorder in which the body does not produce enough healthy red blood cells. This can cause slower healing of wounds, as its red blood cells are in charge of transporting oxygen throughout the body, and a shortage of oxygen can hamper the healing process.  As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of deaths per 100,000 population from anemia in the U.S in 2020 was 1.7 people.

 The advanced wound care is used to heal the infection at a faster rate, as there is a high requirement to pay close attention to wounds arrived owing to diabetes. Therefore, rising cases of diabetes across the world are estimated to fuel the global advanced wound care market’s growth during the forecast period. In America, nearly 38 million people have diabetes as of 2021 as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Advanced Wound Care Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Growing Adoption of Technological Advancements such as Hydrocolloids, Hydrogels, Alginates, and Others – Conventional wound dressings can repair acute wounds in two to three months based on the area spread and depth of the skin tissue damaged. On the other hand, the chronic wounds may include bacterial infections, inflammation, ulcers, and diabetes. To heal such wounds significant care and implementation of complex wound-healing therapy are required. Some of these advanced wound healing methods are hydrocolloids, hydrogels, and duo-dermal patches, and are estimated to have a positive impact on the market growth.  According to observations, 97% of people around the globe preferred using hydrocolloid dressing compared to conventional daily dressing owing to its convenience, intrinsic healing properties, and lack of infections.
  • Elevating Zinc Deficiency in Diet – Zinc is a necessary mineral that is important for numerous body processes, including the healing of wounds. A zinc shortage can result in slower wound healing and a higher risk of infection. As per the estimations, 18% of the global population is at risk of zinc deficiency on account of an imbalanced diet.
  • Rising Number of Wound Healing Disorders, Such as Circulatory Deficiency, Malnutrition, and Sepsis – Poor blood flow to the wound site, or circulatory insufficiency, can cause a wound to heal slowly and risk infection. Diabetes, peripheral artery disease, and venous insufficiency are also a few possible causes of slow-healing wounds. Moreover, slow wound healing is also frequently brought on by malnutrition, and it is expected to increase the market’s growth in the upcoming years. The mortality rate of sepsis in adults in 2019 was 201,000 in the U.S. as observed.
  • Increasing Prevalence of Vitamin D Deficiency – The immune system's correct operation as well as the preservation of strong bones, muscles, and skin depend on vitamin D. Poor wound healing is one of the health issues caused by a vitamin D deficiency. As per the survey, 1 in 6 adults in the UK suffers from vitamin D deficiency as of 2021.
  • Growing Surgical Procedures Around the World – The number of patients needing post-operative wound care rises along with the frequency of surgical operations. The quantity and complexity of surgeries have increased as a result of developments in medical technology. According to the data available, the number of major surgical procedures performed worldwide each year was ~230 million.


  • Expensive Nature of Wound Care Products - Advanced wound care products are highly expensive compared to general wound care products, which prevents their adoption in developing economies. The majority of patients and doctors in such economies opt for wound care treatments that are less expensive. Hence, the factor is projected to hinder market growth in the coming years.
  • Declining Patient Visits for Wound Care
  • High Risks Associated with the Usage of Advanced Wound Care Products

End-user (Hospitals, Specialty Clinics, Home Healthcare)

The global advanced wound care market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end-user into hospitals, specialty clinics, and home healthcare. Out of these, the hospital segment is anticipated to hold the largest market size by the end of 2033. This can be attributed to the large number of patients who require sophisticated wound care, and/or are admitted to hospitals, either for surgery or the treatment of chronic illnesses such as diabetes or pressure ulcers. Hospitals also have the equipment and people needed to offer sophisticated wound care, such as growth factor treatments and negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT). It was found, for instance, that there are about 6,100 hospitals in the United States in 2022.

Application (Chronic, Acute Wounds)

The global advanced wound care market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into chronic wounds, and active wounds.
