Grand View Research, Inc, November 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The global negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) market is anticipated to reach a value of USD 4.0 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing awareness in the developing regions pertaining to advanced wound care is providing a significant opportunity to the key market players to cater to the unmet needs of the target population. The primary driver associated with this market is the cost-effectiveness of single-use negative pressure wound therapy devices.

However, the current reimbursement policies mostly cover conventional NPWT devices owing to their high cost.Furthermore, the geriatric population is also contributing to a great extent toward increasing the prevalence of chronic diseases. Increasing age is one of the high risk factorsleading to the development of chronic diseases such as atherosclerosis, which is one of the prime cardiovascular disorders prevalent in the geriatric population. NPWT is one of the commonly accepted therapies employed for the treatment of arterial ulcers, which is one of the major complications of atherosclerosis. Around 50% of the people worldwide are exposed to fire-related traumas, among which, 90% of the cases occur in low to moderate income countries.Thus, the rising incidence of traumatic events is expected toengender a high demand for negative pressure wound therapy products.
