Global Colostomy Bags Market 2016-2020

About the Colostomy Bags Market

An ostomy procedure, both temporary and permanent depending on the type of condition, involves the surgical creation of an opening or stoma in the human body to excrete waste products such as feces, mucus, and urine. Ostomy products include ostomy bags or pouches and ostomy care accessories. Ostomy bags are placed outside the patient's body to collect waste. Ostomy care accessories enhance the performance and comfort of the bags to manage the needs of ostomates. These accessories help prevent leakage of the ostomy bag contents, provide skin care for the peristomal region, and deodorize the contents.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global colostomy bags market to grow at a CAGR of 5.89% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Colostomy Bags Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global colostomy bags market: B. Braun, Coloplast, ConvaTec, Hollister, Marlen, Oakmed, T G Eakin, and Welland Medical.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 3M Company, Alcare, CliniMed, Cymed Ostomy, Flexicare Medical, Genairex, Hill-Rom Holdings, NB Products, and Torbot Group.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A trend that is expected to boost market growth is the use of closed one-piece colostomy bags. Since the use of colostomy bags, the closed one-piece system has been gaining popularity for use during the management of diseases such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, and irritable bowel syndrome. These closed bags are used by people who have undergone descending or sigmoid colostomy and have harder stool output. In closed one-piece ostomy bags, the bag and the flange together form an inseparable unit and are fixed around the stoma. They are easy to dispose of as the whole unit can be removed. This minimizes the duration and effort required for routine ostomy care. They also help to ease the management of waste in public places and during physical activities.”

According to the report, a key driver of market growth is the need for stoma care. A rise in the use of colostomy bags has led to the demand for colostomy care accessories for stoma. The spillage of stool onto the stoma, sweating, dislocation of the colostomy bag, and unhygienic conditions can cause localized infections around the stoma resulting in a hard, reddened, and painful area. To prevent the incidence of stoma infections, colostomy care accessories have been developed. For instance, a colostomy belt can be worn with two-piece and convex ostomy bags to help prevent body waste leakage. Colostomy powders and cleaning wipes are used to maintain skin care and keep the area around the stoma dry.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could hamper market growth is the unfavorable reimbursement policies adopted by insurance companies.
