Artificial Skin Care is fastest growing segment fueling the growth of Skin Barrier Products Market

Skin barrier products are medical devices used to protect the skin and wounds from external irritants and microbes. They form an impermeable protective layer over wounds to facilitate healing. Skin barrier products are beneficial for conditions like incontinence, intertriginous dermatitis, and open wounds.

Market key trends:

One of the key trends in the skin barrier products market is the rising adoption of hydrocolloid and silicone-based skin barriers. Hydrocolloid skin barriers form a protective gel layer over the skin surface acting as an effective bacterial barrier. They maintain a moist environment suitable for wound healing. Silicone-based skin barriers have permeability allowing the passage of water vapor through the barrier, thus preventing the maceration of skin. They help protect fragile skin folds from friction and shear forces. The advantages of these material-based skin barriers over traditional options have driven their increased usage in recent years.

Segment Analysis

The global skin barrier products market is segmented into dressing, sealants, and other skin barrier products. Among these, the dressing segment holds the highest market share and is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period. Dressing products help protect the wound bed from external factors and maintain a moist healing environment, which promotes fast wound healing. Factors such as increasing prevalence of chronic wounds and surgeries, rising adoption of advanced wound care products, and growing geriatric population are fueling the dominance of the dressing segment.
