EUROPEAN MARKETS FOR COMPRESSION THERAPY & PRESSURE REDUCTION & RELIEF PRODUCTS USED FOR WOUND MANAGEMENT

171 Pages | 38 Exhibits | 2010 Analysis | Forecasts Through 2013 Product Family: Market Reports




OVERVIEW:
Over the past two decades, dramatic advances have been made in the management of wound patients. These factors have greatly improved the ability of clinicians to overcome many of the previously irresolvable issues associated with the treatment of acute and chronic wounds. In 2009, European sales of compression therapy and pressure reduction and relief products used for wound management totaled approximately $963.4 million; of this, pressure reduction and relief products accounted for an estimated 70.2% of sales and compression therapy products accounted for the remaining 29.8% of sales. Over the forecast period covered by this report, total sales are expected to increase at a compound annual rate of 5.7%, reaching approximately $1.2 billion in the year 2013.

This new report by Medtech Insight includes analyses of products, technologies, current and forecast markets, competitors, and opportunities in the European compression therapy and pressure reduction and relief products market. Major topics covered by this report include an overview of the healthcare markets of France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom; an overview of clinical issues in wound management; compression therapy products including passive compression devices (e.g., inelastic and elastic compression bandages and compression stockings) and dynamic compression devices (e.g., pneumatic compression pumps); and pressure reduction and relief products including specialty beds, mattress replacements, and mattress overlays.
