due to ulcer complication such as sepsis and osteomyelitis. Incidence of
pressure ulcers continue to constitute as a geriatric complication.
Impairments from nutritional deficiency, chronic diseases affecting
multiple systems, and immobility predispose skin aging in the elderly
patients, therefore increasing vulnerability to pressure ulcers. The
management of pressure ulcers require a comprehensive and
multidisciplinary methods. Major factors considered include patient
pathologies such as lung disease, peripheral vascular disease, severity
of primary illness, nutritional status, co-morbidities etc. Goals of

However, once an ulcer develops, proper staging of the wound and
consequent rigorous treatments are required. Major treatment measures
for pressure ulcers include using pressure relief devices, wound
dressings and wound healing devices, tissue sealing agents and so on. Of
late, methods of predicting pressure ulcer risks and preventing pressure
ulcer development have received significant attention. Pressure relief
materials and dressings have been improved for allowing accelerated
healing; new treatments such as negative pressure wound therapy, growth
factors and electrical stimulation are also receiving significant
attention in the global market.

For the purpose of this study, the global pressure ulcer treatment
products market is classified in terms of products, wound types and
