Negative Pressure Wound Therapy Gains Popularity, Says iData Research25 Feb 2013 • by Natalie Aster
Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is a relatively new form of wound treatment, and has become increasingly popular.
The new report "European Wound and Tissue Management Markets" by iData Research states that it was originally produced by Kinetic Concepts Inc (KCI), who had a monopoly market for some time. As of 2011, negative pressure wound therapy systems have been developed by a number of competitors in the wound management business.

The development of smaller portable and disposable pumps has allowed negative pressure wound therapy to expand out of the hospital setting and into home treatment. As other major competitors have entered the market to challenge KCI, the business model of NPWT has dramatically shifted. Previously, the vacuum pumps were sold or leased on a rental basis, but competitors are currently switching to a free rental model in order to sell disposables at a higher price. This trend is notable in Spain and Scandinavia where disposable ASPs are very high, while Germany continues to have a strong rental market and relatively inexpensive disposables.
