Global Dermatome Devices Market – Dynamics
Increase in Number of Skin Graft Procedures to Drive Global Dermatome Devices Market
The global dermatome devices market is primarily driven by significant rise in number of skin graft procedures owing increase in incidence rates of burn injury cases, traumatic cases, chronic wounds, and dermatological disorders. For instance, an estimated 6 million cases of chronic wound are reported and around one million skin grafts are performed in the U.S. each year. The skin grafting procedure is considered to be the gold standard for burn and traumatic injury treatment. Significant rise in the number of burn injury cases across the globe is one of the key drivers of the global dermatome devices market. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 180,000 deaths are reported across the globe every year due to burn injuries. In the U.S., every year around 486,000 people receive burn injury treatment. Hence, a large proportion of patients with burn injuries across the globe require skin grafts. This is likely to fuel the growth of the global dermatome devices market during the forecast period.
