Market Overview and Dynamics: The rise in the diabetic population coupled with technological advancements is expected to fuel the expansion of the global hydrogel dressing market in the upcoming years  

The growing prevalence of chronic wounds coupled with the rise in the adoption of evidence-based treatments for chronic wounds and a substantial rise in the diabetic population are the primary factors driving the growth of the global hydrogel dressing market.

As hydrogel dressing products support faster healing, it becomes a go-to product for consumers. Furthermore, technological advances in wound closure techniques, such as injectable stimuli-responsive amorphous hydrogels for halting bleeding in trauma patients and military personnel, contribute to the market’s growth.

Furthermore, the growing prevalence of diabetic foot ulcers, surgical wounds, and burns is expected to drive market growth. Also, because hydrogel dressings partially mimic skin structure and promote the growth of skin components, they promote wound re-epithelialization. As a result, they are widely used in hospitals, specialty clinics, and home healthcare centers.

However, there are some factors impeding the market growth. For example, hydrogels cannot absorb large amounts of liquid and are thus unsuitable for moist wounds that could become infected. Furthermore, because of their low mechanical strength, they are prone to tearing, making it difficult for patients to change their own dressings.

Segmental Analysis

  • Based on product type, the amorphous hydrogel dressing segment is anticipated to dominate the market owing to the increasing ulcer prevalence and military accidents.
  • Based on application, diabetic foot ulcers accounts for a dominant share of the global hydrogel dressing market, however, other segments constitute for a significant share of the market.
  • Based on region, Asia Pacific holds a prominent share of the global hydrogel dressing market due to increased awareness among consumers coupled with the prevalence of chronic diseases in the region.
