DALLAS, Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Brazilian wound and tissue management market includes moist, antimicrobial and interactive wound dressings; negative pressure wound therapy, bandages, wound closure devices, hemostats, tissue sealants, and anti-adhesion products. These products treat a variety of wounds including surgical incisions, burns, and ulcers. The Brazilian wound and tissue management market is expected to be driven by a growing economy and increasing healthcare expenditures. Technological developments such as silver-embedded antimicrobial dressings and negative pressure wound therapy are also driving the market as they experience rapid growth.
NPWT is the fastest growing segment in the Brazilian wound and tissue management market and is expected to continually rise. The development of smaller portable and disposable pumps has allowed negative pressure wound therapy to expand out of the hospital setting and into home treatment. As other major competitors have entered the market to challenge KCI, the business model of NPWT has dramatically shifted. Previously, the vacuum pumps were sold or leased on a rental basis, but competitors are currently switching to a free rental model in order to sell disposables at a higher price. A major driver for the Brazilian NPWT market is the changes in 2011 which officially recognized NPWT therapies for reimbursement. A major increase in the NPWT market is now expected in the coming years as availability of NPWT therapy increases.
