Wound care products promote the wound healing process and reduces the recovery time. These products are sterile in nature and prevent the contamination of wounds during the treatment. Traditional wound dressings are generally used to treat acute wounds by promoting wound healing process. They help absorbing exudates, inhibiting infection, preventing bleeding and drying of the wounds. The advanced wound dressings are used to treat chronic wounds, which fail to heal properly in timely manner. Advanced wound dressings include foam dressings, hydrocolloid dressings, film dressings, alginate dressings, hydrogel dressings, collagen dressings and others.

Wound closure products are used in various internal surgical procedures, such as bariatric surgery, neurosurgical procedures, cardio surgery, obstetrics and plastic surgery. In addition, they are used to decrease the dead space and reduce incidence rates of hematoma and seroma resulting in better wound closure.

However, the high cost associated with wound treatments involving the usage of advance wound dressings as well as high technical assistance required for the utilization of wound closure products are the key restraint in the growth of the wound care market worldwide. The high cost of advanced wound care products, such as foams, hydrocolloids, film, alginate, hydrogel, and collagen, limits the affordability of the users. This hampers the growth of global wound care market.
