Wound care has come into its own in the last five years and is now recognized as a specialty. The field has become so diverse and dynamic that studying “the wound care market” as a whole is no longer instructive. As technologies begin to be commercialized and products hit the market, segmentation by application is the key to understanding market potential.
This Kalorama specialty report will focus on the products that are currently on the market for wound care for skin ulcers and it will also detail the products in development. The objective of the report is to present the current state of wound care management and products for skin ulcers, and forecast future revenues and growth rates through 2007 with a base year of 2002.
Key market drivers are the level of competition within the market and technological innovations coming to the market. Future competitiveness of companies will depend largely on their ability to develop and market products with a higher therapeutic ratio.
This is the first volume of a series that will look at specific wound areas within the wound care treatment market. Subsequent volumes will examine, in turn, the wound care markets aimed at Burns (Volume II) and Surgical and Trauma Wounds (Volume III).
