New tech drives advanced wound care market boom in Asia-Pacific

Innovations and smart technologies drive growth and efficiency in wound management.

The Asia-Pacific advanced wound care market is expected to soar to $3.6 million by 2025, fueled by significant advancements and innovative technologies. Sayali Shinde, Team Lead for Life Sciences at Allied Market Research, highlighted the growing demand in the sector, particularly for treating chronic wounds, which remain a widespread challenge globally.

Shinde elaborated on the remarkable progress within the market, noting, "The advanced wound care market has been witnessing several notable developments, majorly driven by technological advancements, increasing prevalence of chronic wounds, and growing demand for innovative wound care solutions." 

She said the introduction of stem cell therapy, negative pressure therapy, and nanotechnology has revolutionised the industry, providing more effective solutions for acute and chronic wound management.

A significant innovation Shinde points out is the integration of smart technologies into wound dressings. These advanced dressings, equipped with sensors and microelectronics, allow real-time monitoring of wound conditions, enabling clinicians to tailor treatment strategies effectively. 

"These smart dressings...can monitor various wound parameters in real time," Shinde stated, underlining their importance in detecting early signs of infection and improving patient outcomes.

Recent product launches further signify the market's growth, such as Convatec's advanced wound dressing products and Smith & Nephew's US introduction of a new single-use NPWT system. 

"The introduction of such advanced wound care solutions contributes to the growth of the market," Shinde remarked, emphasising the role of innovation in enhancing healthcare professionals' capabilities to manage wounds.

Addressing the challenges in under-developed countries, Shinde discussed the critical role of technology and community engagement in overcoming barriers such as limited resources and inadequate healthcare infrastructure.

She noted the development of low-cost wound dressings and the utilisation of telemedicine platforms as key strategies to improve access to wound care in these regions. "Collaboration between manufacturers, healthcare providers, government, NGOs, and academic institutions is essential," she asserted.

Moreover, Shinde pointed out that over $50 billion are spent annually on chronic wound care, underlining the need for evidence-based guidelines and personalised care to ensure the best use of resources. 

"Cost-effectiveness in wound care is about finding the best balance between the cost involved in wound treatment and the outcome achieved," Shinde explained.
