The U.S. wound dressing market size is expected to reach USD 4.25 billion by 2024. Growing aging population and cases of diabetes and obesity are the major factors driving the market.

The advanced dressing technique is the fastest-growing segment expanding at a CAGR of 4.4% over the forecast period. It also held the dominant market share of USD 1.8 billion in 2017. It is expected to reach USD 2.6 billion by 2024. Advanced dressings includes moist, antimicrobial, and active dressings. Factors such as rapid healing and minimal patient inconvenience are anticipated impel this growth over the forecast period.
Chronic and non-healing wounds are best treated with advanced wound dressing products. Limitations of traditional wound care have propelled the growth of the segment.

Advanced foam technique is essential to prevent and heal the exudation of burn injuries. All these factors are projected to propel the growth of the U.S. wound dressing market during the forecast period.
Advanced alginate dressing is recommended in highly exuding wounds, as it forms a gel around the wound bed and helps in keeping them dry and clean. Advanced alginate dressing have gel-forming ability and they also help reduce the pain. As a result, they are widely used for the treatment for bleeding wounds. Advanced films provide healing to semi-dry and dry wounds. Advanced hydrocolloid dressing helps protect the wound internally, as well as externally. Increasing number of surgeries is expected to fuel the growth of hydrogel dressings. All these factors are expected to propel the growth of the wound dressing market over the forecast period.
Antimicrobial dressings are easy to use, accessible without prescription, and less risk of resistant. Silver and non-silver are the two types of this dressings. Silver shows broad spectrum antibacterial activity and minimal toxicity towards host cells. The non-sliver wound dressing may have single or combination of various ingredients, such as iodine, chlorhexidine, Polyhexamethylbuguanide (PHMB), honey, acetic acid, and potassium permanganate. This type of dressing is used for faster healing process and for reducing the pain. Active wound dressings are administered for the repair and healing through bioactive and skin-substitute compounds.
