The global Wound Healing Films Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 613.8 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 11.% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Wound healing films are advanced wound care products used for wound management and healing. They form an important layer over acute and chronic wounds providing moist environment necessary for wound healing. They are semipermeable films made of various polymers such as hydrocolloids, alginates, and hydrogels. They protect the wound from external infections and assist healing by maintaining a moist wound environment. Their advantages include ease of application, conformity to wound contours, protection from external trauma, and allow exposure during dressing changes without additional pain. They are widely used for diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, venous ulcers and various post-surgical wounds.
Market key trends:
One of the key trends in the wound healing films market is the development of multifunctional innovative wound care films. Researchers are focusing on developing films with enhanced absorbency, exudate management, antimicrobial properties, pain relief, and accelerated healing. For instance, films embedded with silver nanoparticles, aloe vera, manuka honey etc. to provide antibacterial and healing benefits. Some films are embedded with pain relief gel to reduce pain during dressing changes. Such multifunctional films cater to complex wound conditions and aid faster healing.
Threat of new entrants: Low capital requirements and established brand recognition create barriers for new companies.
