Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) is an advance wound care therapy that applies sub-atmospheric or negative pressure to a wound in a closed drainage system. NPWT devices uses an electrical as well as a mechanical suction pump to continuously or intermittently convey negative pressure through connecting tubes to specially designed wound dressings kits that include resilient foam and gauze dressings and thereby promote faster wound healing. NPWT promotes wound healing by reducing edema, by stimulating granulation tissue and cell proliferation as well as by increasing blood circulation. NPWT systems can be used for the treatment of surgical wounds, traumatic wounds, chronic wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers and venous stasis ulcers as well as pressure sores.

The primary factors contributing to the growth of this market are globally increasing geriatric population; as well as increasing incidence and prevalence rate of chronic diseases such as cancer and diabetes leading to rise in chronic wounds. Moreover, high awareness about advance wound care devices and patient preference for the treatment with minimum side-effects are also driving the growth of this market.

The study states that based on the type of devices, negative pressure wound therapy systems are segmented into single use NPWT systems and conventional NPWT systems. In terms of disposables, the conventional NPWT systems are further segmented into pumps, canisters, and dressing kits. Additionally, NPWT systems can also be utilized for treating injuries such as meshed skin grafts and burns. As per this report, in terms of product segments, conventional negative pressure wound therapy systems constituted the biggest market segment, but the single use NPWT systems market segment is expanding at a higher CAGR - of about 17 % - during the forecast horizon between 2014 and 2020.

The negative pressure wound therapy market is experiencing a conspicuous shift from utilization of conventional NPWT systems to single use NPWT systems. This shift in inclination is majorly due to the higher convenience offered by single use NPWT systems to patients, as well as their cost advantage over conventional systems and higher portability.
