Demand of Biomaterials in Wound Healing Drives the Biomaterials Market

Chronic wound is a common issue that arises post surgeries. Increasing number of surgeries due to older population, accidents and chronic diseases has increased the occurrence of chronic wounds. Biomaterials are employed to assist the body during wound healing by encouraging cell migration and development as well as the creation of new tissue. The mechanical characteristics of biomaterials employed in wound healing are critical for their ability to support these processes. Appropriate mechanical strength, flexibility, porosity, structure, biodegradability, and biocompatibility are characteristics of biomaterials for skin regeneration. Biomaterials for wound healing might be synthetic, natural, or a mix of the two. Gelatin, fibrinogen, silk, collagen, and silk are examples of natural biomaterials. Biomaterials have proven to be highly promising in improving skin wound-healing results, namely in terms of quickening the healing process and decreasing scarring and wound contracture.

For instance,

  • There are thought to be 2 million chronic wound sufferers in Europe. According to estimates, 6.5 million Americans (US) suffer from chronic wounds, meaning that number triples there. An estimated 7-85% of the yearly expenditure on wound treatment, amounting to about 25 billion dollars, is ascribed to nursing and hospital care. Worldwide, there are more than 305 million documented cases of acute, burn, and traumatic wounds each year. Foot Ulcer (0.7%) in Diabetics Worldwide Severe Injury (2.8%) Foot ulcers will become more common as a result of the estimated 522 million people who have diabetes by 2030, according to predictions from the Diabetes Federation.

Biocompatibility Issues Restraint the Biomaterials Market

A biomaterial's biocompatibility is a crucial characteristic that sets it apart from other materials. This reaction of the host to biomaterials is known as the appropriate host response. Since biomaterial biocompatibility plays a major role in restricting device lifetime and functioning, the research of biocompatibility is increasingly multidisciplinary. A dynamic, continuous process may be used to represent the multifaceted nature of biocompatibility. There are still disagreements regarding certain materials' biocompatibility. Assessing a material's biocompatibility is a highly intricate process. It is predicated on three exam levels. Developing biomaterials with high biocompatibility that can optimize medical treatment outcomes is a problem for biomaterials scientists. 

Supramolecular Biomaterials Creates Opportunity for the Biomaterials Market’s Growth

It is possible to recreate some of the complexity of natural biomaterials in synthetic systems through the use of supramolecular biomaterials based on noncovalent interactions. Supramolecular biomaterials, which are molecular complexes that function beyond the capabilities of individual molecules, possess the ability to feel and react, rendering them perfect materials for the treatment of illnesses or injuries. The creation of supramolecular biomaterials that replicate natural biological signaling or that may be switched on or off in response to physiological stimuli is being investigated by researchers.
