Negative Pressure Wound Therapy also known as vacuum-assisted wound closure (VAC) therapy refers to the wound dressing systems that consistently or intermittently apply sub-atmospheric to the local wound environment using a sealed wound dressing connected to a vacuum pump. A vacuum source creates continuous or intermittent negative pressure inside the wound to remove fluid, exudates, and infectious materials to prepare the wound for healing and closure. It’s one of the oldest forms of medicinal therapy. This therapy is helpful in treating various types of wounds such as acute wound and chronic wound. Negative pressure wound therapy appears to be a safe treatment, and serious adverse events.
According to WHO, chronic disease will account for almost three-quarters of all deaths worldwide in the year 2020, the role of negative pressure wound care therapy has been considered to be a novel therapy for treatment of chronic disease. The significant population of patient suffering from chronic disease has boosted the demand of negative pressure therapy
Negative Pressure Wound Therapy Market: Drivers and Restraints
Presently, global negative pressure wound therapy market is driven by the aging population, rise in the number of prevalence of chronic disease such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease that lead to chronic wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers and venous leg ulcers, increase in the incidence of cancer and neurological disease has led to long-term bed occupancy of the affected patients thus increasing the incidence rate of decubitus ulcers, and advancement in technologies that promote faster wound healing would also facilitate the growth of this market. However, expensive nature of this procedure and unfavorable government policies and reluctance in adoption of technology driven products has restricted the market growth.
