Global Wound Irrigation System Market: Notable Developments & Geographical Outlook

The Global Wound Irrigation System Market is projected to reach a valuation of US$ 347.3 Mn by 2032, with sales growing at a sluggish CAGR of 2.6% from 2022 to 2032. Predicted to reach an estimated US$ 267.6 Mn in 2022, the wound irrigation system is primarily driven by acute wounds. This system is in high demand in emergency care and other urgent care services as many patients often seek out treatment for wounds and lacerations.

Medical complications arising due to infections such as surgical site infection (SSI)- a wound infection with microbes, mainly bacteria, within 30 days of a surgical procedure- often carry a high risk of mortality and morbidity, specifically in oncological settings. SSI is one of the most common nosocomial infections and its management further burdens the healthcare system financially. One of the more reliable and effective prevention methods for SSI infection is wound irrigation.

The wound irrigation system is much preferable to swabbing or washing as it includes the flushing of the surgical incision with a solution that reduces the bacterial burden, and physically eradicates cell debris and trapped fluids.

Moreover, wound irrigation systems ensure the delivery of a regulated and stable pressure which is a primary requirement for effective wound care management. This feature coupled with much recent progress made in the design and production of new wound irrigation systems is presenting manufacturers with lucrative opportunities at the international level. The rising adoption of negative pressure wound therapy is spearheading the growth of wound irrigation systems.

The emergence of simultaneous wound irrigation technology has led to a surge in the demand for negative pressure wound therapy. These instruments supply a constant flow for the irrigant to the wound site directly from a wound irrigation delivery bag. The irrigant then exits the wound, carrying cellular debris from the wound into the negative pressure wound therapy device canister.

The use of these systems encourages the removal of bioburden and debris in the wound, eventually converting to positive procedural outcomes. Besides, other related benefits of wound irrigation systems are better patient compliance, quicker wound healing, and lower frequency of dressing changes, which in turn, promote cost savings and decrease workload within a hospital setting. All of these factors foster an environment of growth for the wound irrigation system market over the forecast period.
