Insight by Administration Type

Based on product type, the global maggot debridement market is categorized into Biobags, and Loose Larva. Comparatively, biobags segment held the major market share, in 2019, due to the increasing occurrence of chronic wounds & rising surgeries globally. While the Biobags are safe & reliable for usage and delivers outcomes in just 28 days. Furthermore, the segment is expected to witness significant growth over the projected period.

Loose larva wound debridement treatment is an old and conservative process. A dosage of 5-8 larvae per/sq. cm is administered directly within the wound and an outer dressing is developed to contain the larva to the therapy area. The entire treatment process takes around 14 days for wound debridement. However, in comparison with the biobags, the loose larva is not as safe to use, which might hamper the segmental growth for the global maggot debridement market over the forecast period.

Insight by Application

Based on application, the global maggot debridement market is categorized into acute and chronic wounds. The chronic wound segment held a significant share in 2019. The segment is expected to witness significant growth over the projected period as maggot debridement is widely used in chronic wounds. Meanwhile, chronic wounds include venous leg ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, and pressure ulcers.

Additionally, the pressure ulcer segment is expected to achieve the fastest growth rate during the forecast period. Pressure ulcers or bedsores usually occur owing to the intense pressure on the skin for a larger time. It is widely caused by hospital stays & is commonly seen in the geriatric population. In addition to this, pressure ulcers prevail mostly at the bony areas of the human body including hips, ankles, and tailbone. However, increasing the geriatric populace globally is a key factor fueling the maggot debridement market segment.

Insight by End Use

Based on end-use, the global maggot debridement market is categorized into hospitals, wound care centers, clinics, and others. Hospitals held a significant market share, in 2019, due to the rising cases of chronic wounds. Additionally, rising cases of diabetic foot & venous leg ulcers are the key factors fueling the growth of the segment. However, the surgical wounds incidents are rising leading to an increase in the surgeries further propelling the growth of the segment.
