Market Growth:

The Canadian advanced wound care market growth is driven by the factors such as the rising prevalence of chronic wounds, and increasing prevalence of diabetes, and venous and ureteral diseases.

The growing prevalence of diseases and conditions affecting wound healing capabilities drives the market growth      

The growing incidence of chronic ailments such as diabetes is driving the growth of Canada’s advanced wound care market. The number of Canadians living with chronic ulcers is increasing due to the prevalence of diabetes, and venous and arterial diseases. Diabetic patients exhibit a documented impairment in the healing of acute wounds. This may lead to severe wound infections. The diabetic population is prone to develop chronic non-healing diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs), which are estimated to occur in 15% of all persons with diabetes.

With the growing number of diabetics in the country, wound care is gaining importance. According to Statistics Canada, the number of diabetics cases in the country reached 2.49 million in 2019 which is 11% higher than that of the previous year. The incidence rate increased to 7%.

The aging population is another key factor driving the wound care market. Older adults are more likely to have chronic wounds. Vascular diseases are chronic and most common among older Canadians and these diseases result in skin breakdown with ulcers and wounds. According to Canada’s population data 2020, nearly 17% of the total population is over 65 years and the country is likely to join superaged countries like Japan and Italy by 2026.

The high cost of treatments and lack of supportive reimbursement policies will hamper the growth of the market  

However, the high cost of advanced wound care products is one of the major factors hindering the growth of the market. No robust or cost-effective dressing is available except antimicrobial dressings (silver, iodine, or honey), which are preferred over non-medicated dressings to heal chronic wounds.

Moreover, wound care products are prescribed in large quantities for use on an as-needed basis, which incurs additional costs. Advanced wound care products are expensive compared to traditional wound dressing techniques. Therefore, many patients opt for traditional dressings despite their slow healing process. This is posing a major challenge for the growth of the advanced wound dressings segment

The lack of federal monitoring or supporting authority for advanced wound care is limiting developments and access to patients in this sector, thus hindering market growth in the country. The lack of a federal wound care management program is another factor restricting the growth of the advanced wound care market in Canada

In Canada, wound care management is regulated by provincial bodies, and the wound prevention and management programs vary significantly by province. This has led to challenges in providing cost-effective quality wound care services to Canadians limiting the penetration of advanced wound care in the country.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Delivering acute and chronic wound care with physical distancing measures has been a major challenge during the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic. The average age of patients with chronic wounds is older than 70 years, putting this population at increased risk. Health care providers continue to focus on reducing exposure risk in this subgroup of patients while adapting to the new normal. Because of the cancellation of many educational events, there is a reduced opportunity for dermatologists, primary care clinicians, and other professionals to exchange knowledge and discuss the appropriate management of wound care patients.

Segment Analysis

The chronic wounds  segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2029)        

Chronic wounds can be classified as a wound that fails to progress through the phases of healing in an orderly and timely sequence and shows no significant improvement in 30 days’ time.

There is an ever-increasing economic burden for the treatment of chronic wounds being exerted on the healthcare systems in Canada. Hence, the need for cost-effective and innovative products is increasing day by day among the patient population. Recent analytics from the GEMINI group at St. Michael's have revealed that, among 7 Toronto hospitals, the mean in-patient cost for treatment of a diabetic foot ulcer is USD 22,754 per hospital stay and USD 48,808 if a major amputation is required. This is further aggregated by the huge economic cost of treatment of venous leg ulcers and pressure ulcers in the country each year.

Pressure ulcers are commonly found in body parts such as heels, elbows, hips, and the base of the spine. Pressure ulcers usually affect individuals with mobility disorders. People with age over 70 years are particularly vulnerable to pressure ulcers due to factors such as reduced aging of the skin, and blood supply, and older people having a higher rate of mobility problems.

The pressure ulcers once developed, need a rigorous treatment that majorly includes the use of pressure relief devices, wound dressings, tissue sealants, and other wound dressing techniques, owing to which the demand for advanced wound care for pressure ulcers is expected to grow. According to research studies conducted, the prevalence of pressure ulcers varied from 1.1% to 26.7% in the hospital setting, 6% to 29% in the community setting, 7.6% to 53.2% in the nursing home setting, and 13.1% to 28.7% in intensive care units (ICU). The lowest reported prevalence was in the United Kingdom while the highest prevalence was in Canada.
