Growing technological advances in the healthcare industry have led to the design and development of novel medical devices that can be customized as per patients' requirements. Vendors' focus on different technological platforms has also led to the availability of a broad range of urinary catheters with different designs and sizes, thereby simplifying the catheterization process and enhancing patient-care.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is rising geriatric population with urinary incontinence. The increasing prevalence of chronic urological disorders such as urinary incontinence, BPH, multiple sclerosis, and neurogenic bladder diseases increases the demand for urinary catheters. According to the American Urological Association, one-third of men and women in the US experience urinary incontinence.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is complications and risks associated with urinary catheters. Adverse events and complications can arise with catheterization, especially in case of long-term self-catheterization. Indwelling catheterization poses potential complications when compared with the intermittent catheterization. Indwelling catheterization is performed by transurethral or via suprapubic techniques.
