Spotlight on the Skin Substitute Market: SAWC Spring 2023

6/27/23 9:30 AM

SAWC 2023 Spotlight on Skin Sub SPOTLIGHT v3 copySmartTRAK highlights the latest news from SAWC Spring 2023 for the ever-changing, continually growing skin substitute/CTP segment.

The skin substitute/CTP segment has seen double-digit growth year after year. Although the category has been known as the skin substitute or CTP (cellular and/or tissue-based products) market and has been dominated in recent years with amniotic tissue and xenograft products, it has recently grown to include non-biologic or synthetic-based products such as those based on polyurethane, polylactic acid, and bioabsorbable glass. The Journal of Wound Care recently published an international consensus document on “best practice for wound repair and regeneration,” with the clinical panel concluding CTPs weren’t the best terminology for the category. The panel suggested a more accurate name is “cellular, acellular and matrix‑like products (CAMPs),” expanding the definition to include "A broad category of biomaterials, synthetic materials or biosynthetic matrices that support repair or regeneration of injured tissues through various mechanisms of action."
