Skin Ulcer Medications Market set to witness surge in demand over the forecast period 2023-2030

Skin Ulcer Medications Market: Introduction

  • Skin ulcer is an open wound that develops on the skin as a result of injury, poor circulation, or pressure. Medications for venous skin ulcer include Pentoxifylline (Trental), Aspirin, ILOPROST, oral Zinc, and antibiotics & antiseptics (povidone-iodine solution (Betadine), peroxide-based preparations, ethacridine lactate, mupirocin (Bactroban), and topical antiseptic agent cadexomer iodine).
  • Several biological substances or products are used in the treatment of ulcers, including skin grafts and substitutes, biologic wound dressings, and growth factors. Biologics work by naturally accelerating the wound healing process, which reduces the healing time. Hence, several players focus on increasing R&D in biologics, thereby opening new doors for skin ulcer treatment.

Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Skin Ulcer Medications Market

  • Increase in the global population over 65 years of age is a major driver of the global skin ulcer medications market. According to the U.S. Census Board data presented in March 2018, there will be 78.0 million people 65 years and older compared to 76.7 million (previously 76.4 million) under the age of 18 by 2035. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), venous leg ulcers affect around 2% of the population aged 65 years and older in the U.S. Chronic ulceration of the lower leg is a relatively common condition among adults, one that causes pain and social distress. The condition affects 1% of the adult population and 3.6% of the people older than 65. Chronic leg ulcers affect 0.6% to 3% of those aged over 60, increasing to over 5% of those aged over 80.
  • A large under-addressed population of patients suffering from chronic wounds has been observed, especially in the developing countries. Rise in adoption of advanced wound care technologies has been observed with increase in per capita income of people in these countries. Better access to advanced wound care and increase in awareness about cost-effectiveness of advanced wound care therapies have boosted the momentum of shift toward these solutions and products. Increase in adoption of health care solutions and products such as negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) and biologics, including growth factors, skin grafts, and substitutes, has been observed, which is expected to drive the global skin ulcer medications market during the forecast period.
