Collagenase ointments help in the granulation process to promote epithelialization of skin cells. It helps in the transition of wounds from the inflammatory stage to the proliferative stage of wound healing. A significant increase in diabetic foot ulcers and pressure ulcers worldwide drives its market growth. Papain products are employed by the physicians for the treatment of large wounds accompanied by sepsis and cellulite. It is either used in combination with urea or saline solution depending on the degree of tissue necrosis at the wound site. Hydrogels have relatively high moisture content but they are not completely absorbent so they are widely used for tending wounds with light to moderate exudation. 

North America is presently dominating the geography segment for enzymatic wound debridement market. The chief factors responsible for its market growth are the rising prevalence of diabetic foot ulcers in the region. According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), approximately 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes each year. Additionally the domicile of key players such as Mölnlycke Health Care AB, Coloplast Corp., ConvaTec Group, Plc., Medline Industries, Inc., etc. further bolster the market growth in the region.
