             According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research (TMR) "Negative Pressure Wound Therapy Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019," the global negative pressure wound therapy devices market was valued at USD 2.1 billion in 2012 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.2% from 2013 to 2019, to reach an estimated value of USD 4.2 billion in 2019.
             Rise in the number of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, peripheral vascular diseases has triggered the growth of negative pressure wound care therapy (NPWT) market. Moreover, increasing incidence of cancer and neurological diseases has led to long-term bed occupancy of the affected patients thus increasing the incidence rate of decubitus ulcers. The ever increasing geriatric population globally has caused a significant financial burden on the healthcare authorities. To manage this situation patients are preferring usage of portable and easy to use NPWT devices that may be used as a home healthcare devices. This has helped in minimizing the overall cost of the hospital stay. In addition, companies in this industry are trying to stay abreast with technological innovations such as launch of single use NPWT devices that may reduce the chances of contamination. These companies are also increasingly focusing on R&D to introduce patient friendly NPWT devices at minimal cost.

The association has also stated that 15% of people with diabetes experience a foot ulcer at some point in their lifetime. The diabetic foot ulcer causes various complications such as ulceration, infection and gangrene thus leading to complex and costly sequel of diabetes. The role of negative pressure wound care therapy has been considered to be a novel therapy for treatment of diabetic foot ulcers. This significant population of diabetic foot ulcers has boosted the demand for NPWT devices market.
             The NPWT devices market has been primarily segmented into conventional NPWT devices and single use NPWT devices. The conventional NPWT devices market further comprises pumps, canisters, tubes and dressing kits. The NPWT pumps market of the conventional NPWT devices accounted for the largest market. Among these the dressing kits market is expected to foresee the highest growth rate during the forecast period. However, the single use NPWT devices are anticipated to grow at the highest growth rate of over 12% from 2013 to 2019.
