In 2022, GlobalData’s Market Model methodology determined that the leading player in the wound contact layers market in Norway was Molnlycke Health Care followed by Smith & Nephew, BSN medical, Coloplast, 3M and B. Braun Melsungen.

A WCL can be made up of either woven or non-woven material. They can be directly applied to the wound. WCLs are perforated/permeable and allow exudates to pass through secondary dressings. Benefits of contact layers are that they are specifically designed to stay on the wound bed for several days without disrupting the growth of new tissue and to protect the wound bed during dressing changes. This effectively reduces trauma and pain during the dressing changes and promotes healing process. Antimicrobial wound contact layers and non-antimicrobial wound contact layers are tracked under this segment. Antimicrobial WCLs are types of WCLs which have an antiseptic agent incorporated to reduce the risk of bacterial growth and other microbes on the wound and surrounding skin. Non-Antimicrobial Wound Contact Layers (WCLs) are contact layers with no antiseptic agent coated on them.

Following the widespread disruption resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic to the broader medical devices market during 2020 and 2021, the value of the wound contact layers devices market within Norway was expected to be over $2m in 2022.
