As the global population gets older, the need for advanced medical products becomes increasingly important. Medical device manufacturers are responding to this concern by undertaking continuous development of wound dressings. And, with drug-resistant bacteria, new viruses and hospital infections on the rise, wound dressings are becoming more sophisticated by offering multiple functionalities that cater to an individual’s needs.

This report will provide an overview of the different types of wounds and the dressing materials used to treat them, placing a special emphasis on those prepared using nanofibres. The benefits and challenges in using and fabricating nanofibrous wound dressings will be discussed, and some of the commercial nanofibre suppliers and equipment manufacturers will also be introduced. Furthermore, developments in the production of advanced nanofibrous wound dressings in large scale will be highlighted by a number of case studies.

As the global wound care market continues to expand, obtaining an understanding of the advanced materials being used in wound dressings, addressed in this report, will enable medical textiles companies to exploit innovation opportunities, supporting future growth.
