The new study, Wound Care Markets, Volume II: Burns, found that after a few years of slowing momentum, the burn-care segment has begun to stabilize. However, emerging technologies and approaches to burn care will continue to push the dynamic market forward.
"After a decline in growth in 2000, the market appears to be settling," notes Mary Anne Crandall, the author of the report. "However, burn care will continue to experience a few ups and downs due to price constraints, new technologies, and additional market penetration by emerging therapeutics."
The study examines six broad categories of products-anti-infectives, burn management products, moist dressings, biological dressings, pressure relief devices, and other miscellaneous treatments-and more than 10 subcategories, including cleansers, debridement products, silver dressings, alginates, films, foams, hydrocolloids, hydrogels, artificial skins, collagen products, and others.
In addition to a thorough analysis of market size and growth through 2009 for each segment and subsegment, the study details competitive market share in each segment and provides a thorough understanding of the clinical and reimbursement environment in which these wound care manufacturers operate.
