Skin substitutes are natural, synthetic or biosynthetic materials used to cover large wounds to restore at least some of the functions of the skin. Skin substitutes provide temporary or permanent wound closure and protect the wound from infection, further damage and water loss, and reduce pain. They also facilitate the growth of the normal skin over the wound.

Skin substitutes provide a permanent solution and are used to treat conditions like burns, trauma wounds, diabetes or venous ulcers, where skin grafts may not be possible.

Market Dynamics

The major driving forces are the rising incidence of burn injuries, new approached in tissue engineered skin substitutes and growing geriatric population will all drive the growth of skin substitutes market.

Increasing chronic skin disease and rising awareness are expected to drive the market growth.

Rising chronic skin diseases are expected to drive the global skin substitutes market. For instance, according to the global burden of disease study, skin conditions contributed around 1.79% to the global disease burden. According to the World Health Organization, about 132,000 melanoma skin cancers occur each year worldwide. Thus, the rising chronic diseases are increasing the demand for skin substitutes in the forecast period.

The rising prevalence of diabetes is expected to boost the market. This is due to the risk of developing a diabetic foot ulcer over time in diabetic patients. For instance, WHO has reported that the incidence of diabetes for all age groups worldwide was estimated to be 2.8% in 2000 and 4.4% in 2030. The total number of people with diabetes is anticipated to rise from 171 million in 2000 to 366 million in 2030. Thus, as a consequence, the prevalence of diabetes-related complications is expected to increase over the forecast period.

Rising awareness between people about treatment options available in the market are also going to drive the market growth in forecast period. People are looking for advanced and novel burn care products and launching new products will fuel the market growth. Availability of range of products in market will increase the market.

Lack of inability of reproducing skin appendages and capability of replacing lost dermis are expected to hamper the market growth.

There are several limitations to the commercially available skin substitutes, like reduced vascularization, poor mechanical integrity, failure to integrate, scarring, and immune rejection. Also, the currently available skin substitutes mainly consist of fibroblasts and keratinocytes. Hence, they lack the ability to make differentiated structures, like hair and sweat glands. Therefore, there is a need to include additional cell types, such as endothelial cells, in engineered skin.

Industry Analysis

The global skin substitutes market provides in-depth analysis of the market based on various industry factors such as porter’s five forces, regulatory analysis, supply chain analysis, pricing analysis, product innovations and unmet needs.

Segment Analysis

Acellular skin substitutes segment is expected to hold the largest market share in global skin substitutes market

The rise in preference for acellular skin substitutes to implant-based skin surgery is expected to drive the growth of the global skin substitutes market. For instance, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons in 2020 reported that more than 60% of surgeons in the US had preferred acellular matrix for skin surgeries. The rising incidence rate of skin disorders across the globe may lead to an increased number of patients who will undergo either invasive or non-invasive skin surgeries. For instance, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, one in five persons in the US is expected to develop skin disorders in their lifetime.

Several acellular skin substitutes in the market are expected to drive the global skin substitutes market. For instance, Alloderm of LifeCell Inc., Branchburg, NJ, USA, OASIS Wound Matrix of Cook Biotech Inc., West Lafayette, IN, USA, and Integra DRT (dermal regeneration template) Integra LifeSciences Corp., USA are some of the acellular skin substitutes prevailing in the market.

The burn injuries market is largest share-holder and is estimated to grow at a highest CAGR over the forecast period. Rising incidences of burn injuries are expected to drive the market. For instance, according to the World health organization, an estimated 180 000 deaths, every year are caused by burns – the vast majority occur in low- and middle-income countries. Also, the presence of novel approaches in the treatment of burns is expected to drive the market. For instance, 3D bioprinting, transformative technology for the reconstruction of burn wounds, enables accurate placement of cell types and allows precise and reproducible fabrication of constructs that replaces the injured or damaged sites. Thus, its use for wound reconstruction will lead to a paradigm shift in patient outcomes.
