Geographical Analysis

Europe is expected to grow at a significant growth rate owing to the rising prevalence of pressure ulcers diabetic foot ulcers, and government initiatives for wound management.

The rising prevalence of pressure ulcers in the region is expected to boost the market. In the UK, recent research from the NHS Improvement showed that treating pressure ulcers costs the NHS more than £XY per day and around 1700- 2000 patients per month develop pressure ulcers.

 In June 2018, Smith & Nephew announced that the UK’s National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has issued a Medtech innovation briefing (MIB) on the use of PICO single use Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (sNPWT).

The MIB reported the prophylactic use of the PICO as a more effective alternative to the standard surgical dressings in the prevention of surgical site complications (SSCs). According to them, this is the first and the only MIB published by the NICE on an NPWT device for preventing SSCs.

A major reason for the slowing growth in the European advanced wound care market has been stringent regulatory requirements for biological products.

Moreover, the effects of unfavourable reimbursement prices for NPWT devices have also shown a negative impact on the growth rate.


Competitive Landscape
