Hydrocolloid dressing market trends

The introduction of hydroconductive dressing is one of the latest trends that will gain traction in the hydrocolloid dressing market in the coming years. A hydrocolloid dressing is considered as a novel class product since it offers a capillary action that lifts and transfers exudate and remains away from the wound surface level. The hydrocolloid action scatters the contents of the covering and allows extra layers to be used for more seriously exuding wounds. The bandage also provides hydrocolloid debridement that lifts and releases adherent slough not absorbed into the dressing, letting it move toward the dressing for easy removal when the dressing is changed.
