Use of wound dressings and biologics for lowering the rate of amputations and successful treatment of DFU can drive the diabetic foot ulcer market during the forecast period.
By treatment, it is segmented into active therapies, wound care dressings, and wound care devices. Wound dressing held the largest share of the market due to the large number of diabetics.
By end-user, it is segmented into academic and research organizations, hospitals and clinics, and ambulatory surgical centers. Hospitals and clinics accounted for the largest market share due to awareness campaigns by governments and favorable reimbursement schemes. Launch of mobile applications for creating awareness among the masses has successfully driven patients towards hospitals and clinics for diabetic ulcer treatment.
