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

Diabetic Ulcers Treatment Market size is anticipated to reach USD 14 Billion by the end of 2033, growing at a CAGR of 6% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2033. In the year 2022, the industry size of diabetic ulcers treatment was USD 8 Billion. A growing number of people being diagnosed with diabetes worldwide is the primary factor for the market's growth. In 2019, diabetes caused 1.5 million deaths directly, with 48% of fatalities occurring before 70 years of age, according to the World Health Organization. The American Diabetes Association reported that nearly 37.3 million Americans, or 11.3% of the population, have diabetes. A total of 28.7 million of them are diagnosed, whilst 8.5 million remain undiagnosed. Diabetes is one of the common diseases that can affect people at a younger age. Moreover, increasing obesity issues, genetics, unhealthy diet habits, and urbanization are some of the reasons for the increase in diabetes risk.

The most common type of diabetic ulcer is a foot ulcer which is an open sore or wound and occurs in approximately 15 percent of diabetic patients. A foot ulcer is commonly found on the bottom of the foot. Six percent of those who develop a foot ulcer will require hospitalization for infection or other ulcer-related complications. The treatment for diabetic ulcers involves debriding the wound, treating any infection, revascularizing the area, and off-loading the area. Furthermore, growing awareness of treatment options for diabetic ulcers, improvements in treatment procedures, the approval of new products, and increasing research and development expenditure are projected to drive market growth over the forecast period. According to a recent report by the World Bank, global research and development expenditures are expected to be 2.63 percent of the country's total Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in 2020. The growth is considerably higher than 2.2% in 2018.

Diabetic Ulcers Treatment Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Prevalence of Periodontal (Gum) Disease Worldwide - According to the World Health Organization, about 14% of the global adult population suffers from severe periodontal disease, which comprises more than 1 billion cases worldwide. As a result of gum disease, blood sugar levels can increase, which can further exacerbate the problems associated with diabetes, such as heart disease, blood vessel problems, eye problems, kidney problems, and nerve problems. Consequently, poor oral hygiene may contribute to diabetes, which can lead to mouth ulcers. This factor is projected to propel the demand for diabetic ulcer treatment during the forecast period.
  • Rise in the Number of Inactive Lifestyles that Increases Chances of Obesity and Diabetes - About 60% of U.S. adults do not engage in adequate physical activity, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It is estimated that nearly 25 percent of American adults are completely inactive.
  • Huge Base of Geriatric Population Worldwide Who are More Prone to Diabetes - At the end of 2021, there were 747,238,580 people over 60 years of age living in the world, according to the World Bank. In the future, the number is expected to increase.
  • Growing Personal Disposable Income Which Changes Lifestyle Habits - According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, personal income grew by USD 47.0 billion (0.2%) in July 2022, while disposable personal income rose by USD 37.6 billion (0.2%). 
  • Rising Prevalence of Fissured Tongue in Diabetes Owing to Reduced Saliva Flow - For instance, the global prevalence of fissured tongue among diabetic patients is 17% . Diabetes patients showed more of this alteration of 15% than non-diabetics of 11%.


  • Lack of Awareness About Diabetic Ulcers – A large percentage of the population is unaware of the identifying characteristics of diabetic ulcers, often mistaking them for normal ulcers until the disease progresses. Hence, awareness needs to spread about this condition and how to diagnose it.
  • Lack of Raw Materials and Supply Due to COVID-19
  • High Cost Associated with the Foot Ulcer Treatment

Diabetic Ulcers Treatment Segmentation

Ulcer Type (Foot, Mouth, Other Ulcer)

The global diabetic ulcers treatment market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by ulcer type into foot ulcer, mouth ulcer, and others. Among these segments, the foot ulcer segment is anticipated to capture the largest market size owing to the rapidly growing number of people around the world who are experiencing diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs). A diabetic foot ulcer is a very serious condition in diabetic patients, as the immunity power and wound healing process are compromised in these people. The wound is even prone to get infectious over time if proper medications are not taken. For instance, every year, it is estimated that 9 to 26 million people around the world suffer from diabetic foot ulcers as a result of their diabetes. There is a significant chance that a diabetic foot ulcer will develop over the course of a patient's lifetime in 16 to 24% of patients with diabetes.

End-user (Hospitals, Clinics, Ambulatory Surgical Centers, Homecare)

The global diabetic ulcers treatment market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end-user into hospitals, clinics, ambulatory surgical centers, and home care. Amongst these segments, the hospitals segment is expected to garner a significant share.

The increasing favorable reimbursement policies from the government to support people with low income rises the demand for hospitals. The improvement in treatment methods and the presence of experienced doctors in the hospitals is expected to increase the market segment growth in the forecast period.
