LONDON and NEW YORK, July 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

The expected growth in the APAC wound care market can be attributed to an expanding population and high prevalence of chronic wounds due to diabetic ulcers, arterial ulcers, etc. Growing confidence of physicians in NPWT technology and patient awareness are also among the major driving forces for this market. Further, the market is poised to grow due to high-growth portable NPWT systems which have been recently approved in Japan and Australia.

The APAC region is one of the most attractive markets as it covers both developed and developing economies with high potential. Among developed nations, Japan has become a key market in the region after the 2010 reimbursement approval for NPWT. In Australia, the rate of amputation due to diabetes is higher compared with some developed countries and there has been a 30 per cent increase in the number of diabetic-foot amputations in the last decade. While amongst emerging economies, China and India represent a big opportunity for the NPWT market because of high population growth, underserved patients and an outburst of diabetes and related complications.

However, the NPWT market in the continent has not reached its full potential due to lack of awareness, high costs of procedure and consumables followed by a lack of availability. Additionally, there is a shortage of trained practitioners who can handle life-threatening complications, such as bleeding associated with NPWT use. Further, the market is restrained by its limitation of use on actively infected wounds, undrained and malignant wounds, tissue necrosis and fistulas. Moreover, growth in the Indo-China market is limited by the use of assembled NPWT systems which are much cheaper and therefore widely used over branded products.
