Global moist wound dressings market: Advances in moist wound dressing technologies

The ongoing technological advances in the healthcare sector are emphasizing on wound care research, leading to the development of a new range of wound dressings with properties of absorption, hydration, and antibacterial activity. The emergence of new technologies led to a shift from simple dressings to more advanced devices and products incorporating best-in-class ingredients. There is an increase in focus to improve the condition of wound bed tissue and to provide products that repair and regenerate damaged tissue to optimize healing.

“Keratin based wound management is the new and promising technology in wound treatment. Keratins are the major proteins in keratinocytes and are essential for various cellular functions such as cell migration and wound re-epithelialization. Hence keratin-based dressings can enhance the cell growth, leading to improved healing outcomes,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on orthopedics and medical devices.
