For many geriatric patients, pressure ulcers may become chronic in nature for no reason and may even remain for lifetime. Several grade 3 and 4 patients develop chronic wounds and may also result in fatality due to ulcer complication such as sepsis and osteomyelitis. Incidence of pressure ulcers continue to constitute as a geriatric complication. Impairments from nutritional deficiency, chronic diseases affecting multiple systems, and immobility predispose skin aging in the elderly patients, therefore increasing vulnerability to pressure ulcers. The management of pressure ulcers require a comprehensive and multidisciplinary methods. Major factors considered include patient pathologies such as lung disease, peripheral vascular disease, severity of primary illness, nutritional status, co-morbidities etc. Goals of pressure ulcer treatment include avoiding preventable circumstances. However, once an ulcer develops, proper staging of the wound and consequent rigorous treatments are required. Major treatment measures for pressure ulcers include using pressure relief devices, wound dressings and wound healing devices, tissue sealing agents and so on. Of late, methods of predicting pressure ulcer risks and preventing pressure ulcer development have received significant attention. Pressure relief materials and dressings have been improved for allowing accelerated healing; new treatments such as negative pressure wound therapy, growth factors and electrical stimulation are also receiving significant attention in the global market.

For the purpose of this study, the global pressure ulcer treatment products market is classified in terms of products, wound types and usage area. Among the considered product types, wound dressings and pressure relief devices occupy the largest share in the global market. Though there is no clear leadership of any particular dressing type, it is evident that advanced wound healing products such as alginates, hydrocolloids and antimicrobials are the major dressing types that are receiving significant attention in the market.

Stage 3 and 4 wound types currently occupy the largest market hare globally, in terms of wound types.

Treatment of these wound types mainly require simple wound dressings and appropriate preventive care so as to avoid advancing to further stages.

Hospitals are the most prominent usage area for pressure ulcer treatment products. Greater patient footfall, and higher affordability for advanced products are the key factors facilitating the dominance of this segment. On the other hand, home care segment currently has the smallest market share in the global market. However, this segment shall cannibalize on the market share of hospitals due to growing preference of patients to move to home care in order to save healthcare costs.
