London, United Kingdom, 2007/09/19 - Report Buyer, the online destination for business intelligence for major industry sectors, has added a new report which forecasts that the skin ulcer treatment market, which had seen a ‘plateau’ effect is all set for a resurgence.
“Wound Care Markets: Volume I: Skin Ulcers” finds that in just four years, the skin ulcer treatments market will touch $6.2 billion due to new treatments and shifting demographics.
The report attributes the impending steady growth due to the emergence of new therapies which will decrease healing time and so help in saving overall costs. A changing demographic pattern and focus on special populations like those suffering from diabetes or obesity or those growing old will also aid market growth.
The report says that a majority of sales will still come from established skin treatment products like anti-infectives, skin ulcer management, and pressure relief devices, but progress in the fields of biotechnology, bio-materials, and tissue engineering will also contribute to an improving market.
In particular, analysts are highlighting the importance of negative wound pressure therapy, which is the use of vacuum pressure within a foam sponge and adhesive wrap to stimulate blood flow and promote faster healing. This is a segment expected to boost market sales considerably.
Authors of the report note that there has been significant development in the skin ulcer treatments over the last decade. On one hand, rapid advances in tissue engineering, animal-fetal-cell research, stem-cell research, and gene therapy have the promise of cure for patients who suffer from skin ulcers, and on the other hand treatments currently available are also sophisticated and highly effective.
The study covers the world wound care market for skin ulcers focusing on the various segments- anti-infectives, skin ulcer management, moist dressings, negative pressure wound therapy, biological dressings and pressure relief. In addition, it looks at both products on the market and products in development, and current issues and trends.
