Tissue engineered skin substitutes or artificial skin substitutes can be defined as bioengineered skin substitutes derived from human tissue, non-human tissue, synthetic materials, and composite of these materials. These are mostly used in the treatment of burns, diabetic ulcers, vascular ulcers, and lacerations. Acellular skin substitutes are collagen-rich matrices prepared by removing the cellular components (protein and collagen matrix) of human cadaver skin.
Rise in preference for acellular skin substitutes for implant-based skin surgery accelerates the growth of the global acellular skin substitutes market. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (2012) stated that more than 50% surgeons in the U.S. preferred acellular matrix for skin surgeries. Moreover, rapid rise in the incidence rate of skin disorders across the globe is likely lead to an increased number of patients who will undergo either invasive or non-invasive skin surgeries. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (2013), one in five persons in the U.S. is expected to develop skin disorder in his/her lifetime.
