The global Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) Devices market is estimated to be valued at USD 2,288.1 million in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period 2022-2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) Devices are used in the treatment of chronic wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, and venous leg ulcers. These devices create a vacuum environment around the wound, promoting faster wound healing and preventing infection. NPWT devices are widely used in hospitals, clinics, and home healthcare settings. The increasing prevalence of chronic wounds and the rise in surgical procedures are driving the demand for NPWT devices globally.
One of the key drivers of the NPWT devices market is the rising prevalence of chronic wounds. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), around 9% of adults over the age of 60 suffer from chronic wounds. Additionally, the increasing incidence of diabetes, obesity, and other chronic diseases further contribute to the growing demand for NPWT devices.
Another driver is the increase in surgical procedures worldwide. With advancements in healthcare facilities and accessibility to healthcare services, the number of surgeries performed has significantly increased. NPWT devices are extensively used in surgical wound management, leading to increased adoption of these devices.
Market Key Trends:
One key trend observed in the NPWT devices market is the integration of advanced technologies such as telehealth and wearable devices. These technologies enable remote monitoring and real-time data collection, enhancing patient care and reducing hospital visits. For instance, Medela AG’s Vario 18 and Medela LifeSense systems offer telehealth capabilities for effective wound management.
– Strength: Growing demand for Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) Devices Market in the treatment of chronic wounds, Increasing adoption of advanced technologies in wound care.
