Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) Devices Market

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) Devices Market driven by rising prevalence of chronic wounds

NPWT devices provide controlled negative pressure to the wound site to remove fluid exudates and improve blood flow. NPWT therapy helps reduce edema, seal tissues and promotes faster healing. It is effective in managing hard-to-heal wounds such as pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, surgical and trauma wounds. The global burden of chronic noncommunicable diseases which can lead to chronic wounds is growing rapidly. According to the International Diabetes Federation, around 463 million adults aged between 20-79 years were living with diabetes in 2019 and this figure is projected to rise to 700 million by 2045. The growing geriatric population and rising incidence of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes are major factors fueling the demand for NPWT devices.

The global Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) Devices Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 16537.84 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.6% 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 observed in the NPWT devices market is the launch of portable and disposable NPWT systems. These systems offer enhanced patient mobility and improve compliance by eliminating the need for routine system maintenance. For instance, in September 2021, Smith & Nephew introduced Pico Single Use NPWT, a one-time-use portable device that can be applied directly to wounds. Companies are also focusing on technology advancements such as integration of smartphone apps to remotely monitor patients. This allows clinicians to track healing progression and adjust therapy without in-person visits. 3M launched the M.D. Rescue device in 2019 which connects to a mobile app and alerts clinicians if changes occur in a patient’s wound. Such innovation and technological advancements are expected to drive the adoption of NPWT devices.

Porter’s Analysis
