According to TechSci Research report, Alginate Dressing Market - Global Industry Size, Share, Trends, Opportunity, and Forecast, 2018-2028F, the global alginate dressing market is anticipated to grow at an impressive rate in the forecast period, 2024-2028This can be ascribed to the increasing incidence of chronic and acute wounds related infections across the globe. Additionally, increasing number of surgical site infections along with the rising number of road accidents, especially in the developed countries in North America and Europe, is expected to create lucrative opportunities for market growth in coming years. Besides, increasing the number of diabetes and diabetic foot-related ulcers is further expected to support the market growth. Similarly, the rising number of burns, and trauma-related cases will further boost the market growth during the forecast period. Sometimes, serious bleeding issues and other injuries needed immediate medical attention and surgical procedures to provide patients with immediate relief which will further boost the market growth over the years.

Similarly, lack of awareness among individuals and healthcare professionals, especially in the developing countries may hamper the alginate dressing market growth during the forecast period. Also, poor reimbursement scenario and lack of insurance coverage for surgeries in emerging countries, can further restrict the growth of global alginate dressing market. Additionally, the high cost of alginate dressings may hamper the growth of the market during the forecast period.
