Skin Repair Market Analysis | United States | 2017-2023 | MedCore
Soft tissue repair devices used for skin repair are unique in the sense that they are laid directly over the skin. This separates skin repair devices from soft tissue repair devices used for other indications that require complex surgical implantation. This report will focus on a specific class of skin repair wound dressings called interactive wound dressings. Interactive dressings are designed to work synergistically with the bodys healing process, similarly to other soft tissue repair devices. Interactive dressings become involved with the bodys physiology and mimic substances in the bodys wound healing pathways that are lacking in situations with chronic wounds or in burn patients. The interactive dressings market includes skin substitutes and collagen dressings.

The U.S. accounts for a large portion of the world-wide market for interactive dressings. Usage of these products was mostly done in an outpatient setting, while a smaller portion was used in surgical suites or burn centers. This market possesses an enormous amount of potential as it is estimated that few non-healing venous leg and diabetic foot ulcers were treated with interactive dressings. The limitations stem from the fact that a strong body of clinical evidence is required for reimbursement in outpatient settings. Many emerging competitors initially sell to the Veterans Health Administration because gaining reimbursement is less strict.

The leading competitor in the skin repair market was MiMedx. MiMedx manufacturers the EpiFix®, a dehydrated amniotic allograft, which has Medicare reimbursement for both diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers. Recently, Organogenesis has experienced a drastic decline in their market share can be attributed to the 2014 changes in the reimbursement structure, which caps the maximum reimbursement available for a facility using skin substitute products. Integra LifeSciencescompeted only in the skin substitute markets and captured 16.8% of the market with their Integra®Bilayer Wound Matrix, Integra®Dermal Regeneration Template and Integra®Flowable Wound Matrix. Other companies analyzed include Osiris, Acelity and Smith & Nephew.
