The global market for Traditional Wound Management Products estimated at US$5.2 Billion in the year 2020, is projected to reach a revised size of US$6.4 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 3.7% over the analysis period.

Steered by robust increase in wound care requirements in verticals such as surgical wounds, trauma, lacerations, diabetic ulcers, venous ulcers, burns, and pressure ulcers, demand for various traditional wound dressings such as gauzes, bandages, body netting, cohesive wraps, composite dressings, and non-adherent dressings, exhibited progressive growth.

Furthermore, aging population, growing incidence of lifestyle diseases like obesity and diabetes, favorable medical reimbursement policies in various countries, and advancements in medical technology, among other factors have aided market expansion. The trend towards self-care is a major force widening market opportunities in the category.

With medical costs surging incessantly, people prefer to take care of minor wounds and injuries themselves, which has led to increase in demand for products that promote healing faster at one`s home. Evolving wound care practices in ambulatory care as well as outpatient centers potentially enhance the future prospects for traditional wound management products.

Gauzes, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is projected to record a 3.8% CAGR and reach US$3.4 Billion by the end of the analysis period. After a thorough analysis of the business implications of the pandemic and its induced economic crisis, growth in the Bandages segment is readjusted to a revised 2.8% CAGR for the next 7-year period.

These dressings help keep the wound clean and allow faster healing. Use of cotton gauze remains widespread in medical dressings, wound adhesions and other areas. Bandages, particularly adhesive tapes and bandages, continue to witness growing application, given their extensive usage in sports medicine and in first aid for the treatment of minor injuries.
