Drivers: Growing prevalence of urinary incontinence
Urinary incontinence means a person urinates when they do not want to. A person loses control over the urinary sphincter as it gets weakened. Incontinence lasts longer due to several reasons such as weak bladder or pelvic floor muscles, overactive bladder muscles, damage to nerves that control the bladder from diseases such as multiple sclerosis, diabetes, or Parkinson’s disease, diseases such as arthritis that may make it difficult to get to the bathroom in time and pelvic organ prolapse. It is most common in specific countries such as the US. According to the American Urological Association, women are more prone to urinary incontinence than men. An estimated 30% of females aged 30-60 are suffering from it compared to 1.5-5% of men. Obesity and smoking are primary causes of this disorder. Data suggests that, in developing countries, over 50 million people suffer from urinary incontinence. People with urinary incontinence are frequently depressed. Moreover, increasing cases of urinary incontinence among women is a key factor expected to boost market revenue growth during the forecast period.
Restraints: Complication associated with catheterization
Poor quality catheters are the cause of urinary tract infections. The side effects caused due to such catheters are headache, fever, cloudy urine, chills, burning in the genital area,blood in the urine, foul-smelling urine, achiness, and low back pain. Poorly lubricated catheters when inserted and removed can cause friction between the surface of the device and the urethral walls, which can lead to infection and bleeding. Catheters made with poor quality material can also cause allergic reactions and injuries such as kidney damage, blood in the urine, bladder stones, injury to the urethra, and septicemia, which is expected to hamper market growth during the forecast period.
COVID-19 adversely affected market growth in countries across the globe. Many healthcare staff and workers were engaged in treating COVID-19 patients day and night. Post lockdown, economic activities revived and surgeries were conducted on a daily basis leading to hospitalization and frequent use of urinary catheters. People suffering severely from COVID-19 were prescribed urinary catheters to prevent any movement from their ward. Governments, especially of emerging countries, introduced reforms to revolutionize the healthcare sector and also focused on bringing private investments worldwide. Research activities and up-gradation of laboratories helped in the development of better quality catheters, which have been used for clinical purposes, which is further contributing to market growth of urinary catheters.
On the basis of type, global urinary catheters market is segmented into coated catheters, uncoated catheters, and others.
Coated catheters segment accounted for largest revenue share in 2021 and is expected to grow at a rapid rate during the forecast period owing to the availability of better quality catheters to reduce anti-fouling properties. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)-coated catheters, also known as Teflon-coated catheters have low coefficient and non-stick properties, which makes them an optimal material for resisting bacterial expansion. Moreover, recent improvements in the catheters coating such as parylene coatings that are more lubricated and have comparatively fewer side effects are factors boosting market growth.
End-use Type Insights:
On the basis of end-use type, global urinary catheters market is segmented into hospitals, long-term care facilities, and others.
Hospitals segment accounted for a significantly large revenue share in 2021 and is expected to register rapid growth rate during the forecast period owing to an increasing number of patients getting hospitalized. Catheters are also used after operation to remove fluid and blood from the body. Hospitals also have their own diagnostic center which also requires catheters for diagnosing and imaging-related purposes. An increase in government spending on building hospitals in developing areas, production of better quality urinary catheters and procurement by hospitals in substantial numbers, increasing research activities for the development of innovative products, and an increasing number of women suffering from UTI has led to high demand for urinary catheters and is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.
On the basis of product, global urinary catheters market is segmented into indwelling catheters, intermittent catheters, external catheters, and others.
Indwelling catheters segment accounted for a significantly large market revenue share in 2021. An indwelling catheter collects urine by attaching it to a drainage bag. It also has a valve that can be opened to flow out urine. These bags can also be secured to patients’ legs, allowing them to be worn under clothes. One end of the indwelling catheter has deflated balloon that inflates with sterile water to hold the catheter in place. Various side effects are associated with this catheter such as blockages, bladder spasms, pain, and discomfort.
Intermittent catheters segment is expected to register rapid growth rate during the forecast period owing to its pre-lubrication to reduce discomfort during insertion. A person has to replace the catheter post emptying the bladder several times a day. It is easy to use and more comfortable than other types of catheters, which has led doctors to prescribe this catheter for short-term use.
On the basis of application type, global urinary catheters market is segmented into urinary incontinence, general surgery, benign prostatic hyperplasia, and others.
Urinary incontinence segment accounted for largest market revenue share in 2021 and is expected to register steady growth rate during the forecast period owing to increasing cases of UTIs and other medical conditions such as stroke, paralysis, mobility impairment, and cancer. Urge incontinence and stress are the most common types of urinary incontinence found in women these days. Overflow urinary incontinence occurs as a result of constant dribbling of urine due to overfilled bladder because of obstruction or blockage to urinary flow as in prostatic enlargement or urethral structure. Functional urinary incontinence occurs when there is a lack of mobility in reaching the bathroom in severe arthritis or bedridden cases. An increasing number of hospitalization worldwide has led to aging and urinary continence has led to demand for catheters, which is expected to drive market growth.
Based on regional analysis, market in North America accounted for largest revenue share in 2021 and is expected to grow at a steady rate during the forecast period owing to high prevalence of chronic diseases.
