Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is growing opportunities for single-use NPWT in other applications. NPWT is used in various applications such as foot ulcers, traumatic wounds, skin graft fixation, and pressure ulcers. Single-use NPWT promotes healing of wounds by multiple actions such as decreasing the bacterial load in wounds, providing a moist environment, and removing exudate from wounds to help establish fluid balance.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing number of regulatory approved products. Technological innovations in wound care products have significantly influenced the use of advanced products over traditional ones by clinicians and individuals. These advanced wound care products are highly efficient and safe and have a better wound healing capability, which will eventually reduce hospital stays. Companies are focusing to develop disposable NPWT solutions, which are more economical and efficient for wound treatment.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is shortage of qualified healthcare professionals. Modern wound care systems include various types of dressing materials and techniques. Though single-use NPWT provides better clinical outcomes, there are various risks associated with it such as infection, skin irritation, and pain during foam dressing changes. Therefore, trained practitioners and nurses are frequently required to monitor individuals and alert them about the complications associated with single-use NPWT. Shortage of qualified healthcare professionals is a major challenge for the growth of the market.
