Industry Trend Analysis
The global diabetic foot ulcers and pressure ulcers market is estimated to be around $5.2 billion by 2025. This can be attributed to number of factors such as rise in prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetic foot ulcers, increasing geriatric population, and increase in obese population globally. Diabetic foot ulcers and pressure wounds are chronic wounds affecting millions of people suffering from diabetes worldwide. According to California Podiatric Medical Association, around 15% of diabetic people suffer from foot ulcers in their lifetime. The escalating prevalence of diabetes worldwide will further increase the chances of diabetic people developing foot and pressure ulcers. Pressure ulcers often affect patients affected by chronic diseases requiring longer hospital stays with lack of mobility. However, high cost of diabetic and pressure ulcer treatment is expected to hamper the market growth during the forecast period.
Type of Wound Outlook and Trend Analysis
Diabetic foot ulcers segment accounted for the largest share of the global market in 2016 and is projected to endure the ascendency during forecast period, owing to growing prevalence of diabetes, high risk of developing foot ulcers and inadequate preventive measures taken by the patients.
Treatment Type Outlook and Trend Analysis
Wound care dressing segment dominated the global market in 2016, owing to increasing awareness regarding wound care management. Negative pressure wound therapy segment is expected to witness favorable growth during forecast period owing to its advantages in effective healing of transplanted skin, reduced post treatment infection complications and reduced hospital stay.
End User Outlook and Trend Analysis
On the basis of end user, hospital inpatient settings segment dominated the global market in 2016 and is projected to continue its lead over the forecast period.

North America dominated the global diabetic foot ulcers and pressure ulcers market. This can be attributed to increasing geriatric population susceptible to diabetic foot ulcers, rise in number of procedures performed for the treatment of these diseases in the North American region and high risk of acquiring pressure ulcers due to prolonged hospital stay.
Asia-Pacific is anticipated to record highest CAGR during forecast period owing to the presence of large diabetic patient pool at high risk of developing diabetic foot ulcers, increase in disposable income of people and increase in demand for minimal surgical procedures requiring shorter hospital stay.
