logoMarket Overview

Skin and wound disinfection is a process wherein the wounded area is treated using various medical products and procedures in order to kill the harmful microorganisms. Some of the disinfection products used include cetrimide, chlorhexidine, etc. As leaving a wounded area untreated could cause serious health issues, it is important to use sterile products or solutions.

The launch of acellular dermal matrix named DERMGEN by Lake Superior Center for Regenerative Medicine (Renamed) will further help drive the global skin and wound disinfection market. Furthermore, the popularity of negative pressure wound therapy helps advance skin and wound disinfection products across the globe. The rising adoption of new products among healthcare providers and patients will further bolster the global skin and wound disinfection market. However, the skin and wound disinfection market is likely to face a negative impact due to the current COVID-19 pandemic as the patients are avoiding wound management in hospitals or clinics due to the fear of contracting the disease.

The outbreak of the new strain of COVID-19 is likely to further affect the market growth during the forecast period. Even the delay in the diagnosis of the wounds such as foot ulcers and lack of awareness regarding hard-to-heal wounds, absence of standard guidelines, high cost of advanced products, and limited accessibility to developed healthcare facilities are other factors likely to restrain the global skin and wound disinfection market.
