Digital wound measurement devices are used to precisely assess, document and track the healing process of various types of wounds. These devices help in detailed imaging and mapping of wound dimensions along with depth and volume measurements for accurate evaluation and comparison over time. They reduce dependence on manual measurements and subjective assessment while ensuring consistency and reliability of wound data. Digital wound measurement allows remote monitoring and evaluation, thereby reducing time spent on follow-ups.
The global digital wound measurement devices market size is estimated to be valued at US$ 75.51 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period 2023-2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends:
One of the major trends in the market is the growing popularity of integrated wound measurement systems. These integrated systems combine advanced imaging technology, measurements and documentation software into a single platform for streamlined wound evaluation and management. They offer superior accuracy, reproducibility and consistency compared to conventional manual measurements. Systems with integrated cameras, illuminators and software for 3D and fluid analysis are gaining traction among healthcare providers. Additionally, development of smartphone-based measurement applications is anticipated to further drive the market. These apps allow wound care teams to easily capture and share images and documentation digitally for remote consultations and monitoring.
Threat of new entrants: Low capital requirement and established supply chains lower the threat of new entrants in this market. However, presence of key players with strong brand recognition and dominance poses entry barriers.
