Cost Effective Market Research Reports for Medical Devices

Advanced Wound Care Markets in Europe


Estimated at over $14bn in 2015, Wound Care is one of the most competitive environments in European Medical Devices. Here we examine principle products, their usage, shares and future, together with upcoming technologies and analysis of key competitor players in the field.


This report is produced to assess the modern wound care markets of Europe. Modern or advanced wound care was born some years ago with the advent of research indicating that chronic wounds will heal better and more quickly if treated in a moist, covered environment.


To aid better dissemination of the complex availability and array of information, we have

broken down our wound care analysis to key product sections. These are:


Hydrocolloids – The first to be developed of the modern dressings and still very

much with a place in wound care management. Originally developed for wound care in the

1980’s following success within the Ostomy care field; there is still a large market for these types of dressing and they form a benchmark for modern wound care. More than 20 brands and their respective manufacturers are analysed.


Hydrogel Dressings – Ideally suited for dry wounds, since they are capable of absorbing water without dissolving. Hydrogels are capable of re-hydrating wounds and thereby promoting autolysis. There are again more than 20 brands on the European market from some 15 companies.


Alginates – Derived from brown seaweed and used on a wide range of highly exuding wounds. Alginates can absorb up to 20 times their own weight in fluid and are usually available in rope and sheet form and typically are used to treat leg ulcers, cavity, sinuses and infected wounds. More than 20 brands analysed.


Film Dressings – Indicated for use on shallow wounds such as donor sites, minor burns, grazes and postoperative incisions. Semi permeable film dressings control and minimise the loss of moisture to the environment.

Foams – Polyurethane or Silicone foams are widely used in Wound Care. Suitable for wounds with light to moderate levels of exudates and particularly useful for conforming to awkward areas of the body.


Antimicrobials – The fight against antibiotic resistant micro-organisms, make clinicians consider their options carefully in dealing with infected wounds. Products containing Chlorhexidine, Iodine and Silver comprise the majority of brands, which currently number over 50.


Honey – Used since Egyptian times, now enjoying a renaissance in modern healthcare, Honey preparations and dressings have the ability to debride, reduce odour, heal and offer anti-bacterial properties. Some 10 brands are currently available in Europe.
