Global burn injury treatment market size surpassed at US$ 2.7 Bn in 2019 and to grow at a CAGR of 5..1% during the forecast period of 2019 to 2027.

The burn injury treatment market size is projected to surpass around US$ 4 billion by 2027, increase in the prevalence of burn injuries, rise in the adoption of artificial skin substitutes, and surge in the demand for advanced treatment are factors anticipated to drive the global burn injury treatment market.


  • Burn injury is an injury to the skin or tissue caused due to various factors, such as heat, friction, chemicals, electricity, etc. First, second, and third degrees are the levels of burns based on the severity of the injury to the skin.
  • Various products are available to treat the burn injuries, including biological products, wound care dressings & devices, and medications.
  • Growth of the global burn injury treatment market can be attributed to the increase in the patient pool across the globe.
  • North America dominated the global burn injury treatment market in 2018, and is projected to continue its dominance during the forecast period, due to the high rate of adoption of superior technologies in the region.
  • Asia Pacific is a lucrative burn injury treatment market, owing to government funding for research and the improving healthcare infrastructure in the region.

Hydrogel Dressings Reduce Trauma in Pediatric Burn Patients

Burn injuries lead to painful and traumatic experiences, especially in children. Hence, there is the growing need for enhanced treatment alternatives in the burn injury treatment market that reduce pain and anxiety in pediatric burn patients.

The revenue of traditional dressing products is projected to reach ~US$ 1.4 billion by 2027, in the burn injury treatment market. Thus, healthcare companies are developing result-oriented hydrogel dressings to capitalize on the market trend. Hydrogel dressings help reduce re-epithelialization time as compared to conventional plastic wrap used for the treatment of pediatric burn patients. As a result, parents and healthcare professionals are turning towards hydrogel dressings to provide pain relief via the evaporative cooling agents present in the dressing, which soothes exposed nerve endings in the skin.

Improved Skin Regeneration Therapies Overcome Treatment Obstacles

Tissue regeneration technology has achieved important milestones in the burn injury treatment market. However, its limitations are a great concern for healthcare providers. For instance, commercial products such as Epicel and Cryoskin are mostly non-permanent bioactive materials in dressings. In many cases, immune rejection has been reported by patients who opted for skin-regeneration dressings with allogeneic fibroblasts and keratinocyte materials. Hence, healthcare providers are increasing the capabilities of skin-regeneration therapies using cytokines and ECM (Extracellular Matrix).

Collagen-based products have the highest revenue among biological products, with an estimate of ~US$ 276 million by 2027, in the burn injury treatment market. This is not surprising, as healthcare providers are developing product designs that provide similar skin composition to collagen types I and III, which are native tissues in the human body. However, collagen possesses poor mechanical properties. Hence, scientists and healthcare companies are improving collagen-based products by cross-linking collagen with synthetic materials for developing better skin-regeneration treatment options.

Rising Adoption of Artificial Skin Substitutes and Burn Injury Cases to Drive Market

  • The growing demand for artificial skin substitutes is propelling the growth of the global burn injury treatment market, as biosynthetic skin substitutes promise effective solutions for wound care.
  • Increase in the number of burn injury patients across the globe is augmenting the global burn injury treatment market. For instance, as per WHO, burn injuries account for 180,000 deaths globally every year, majorly in low- and middle-income countries.
