Alginate Dressings Market to Jump at a CAGR of 4.1%, Amid

Seoul, Nov. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The alginate-based wound dressing market reached a valuation of US$1 billion in 2022. Additionally, over the valuation period 2022-2032, growth is expected to accelerating at a CAGR of 4.1%, reaching US$1.50 billion. The growing prevalence of chronic and acute wounds is the main driver of the sector. According to recent forecasts published in NCBI (2022), the global annual incidence rate of diabetic foot ulcers is expected to be between 9.1 million and 26.1 million. Similarly, the Independent Diabetes Trust in the UK stated in its report (2019) that while 278,000 people are treated for venous leg ulcers, around 115,000 people suffer from diabetic foot ulcers each year.

Additionally, the increased prevalence of severe burns could drive the growth of the market. According to the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society, more than 2 million burns are recorded in the United States each year, 14,000 people die and another 20,000 need to be admitted to a burn unit. In addition, around 75,000 people need to be hospitalized every year, 25,000 of whom stay longer than two months. Also, increased incidence of burns, trauma, and traffic accidents are expected to boost the growth of the industry. For example, WHO (2018) estimates that more than one million people in India suffer from severe or moderate burns every year.

Alginate dressing can provide an excellent protective barrier for newly healed skin that is still intact, as well as partially healed wounds that may need protection from potential surface damage. Due to the aforementioned product benefits, adoption is expected to increase throughout the projection period.
