Global Intermittent Catheters Market to Reach US$ 3.6 Billion by 2027, Impelled by Increasing Urinary Incontinence Cases

Published on Sep 29, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Intermittent Catheters Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global intermittent catheter market reached a value of US$ 2.36 Billion in 2021. An intermittent catheter is a urological catheter used to drain urine from the urinary bladder when individuals cannot urinate naturally. It is widely advocated as an effective bladder management strategy for patients with incomplete bladder emptying due to idiopathic or neurogenic detrusor (bladder) dysfunction (NDO). It is made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or vinyl, latex rubber, and silicone materials and is intended for one-time use. The primary users of intermittent catheters include individuals with spinal cord injury or people suffering from urinary incontinence. Since these devices offer greater ease of handling and low cost of catheterization in comparison to other catheters, this is providing a boost to the market.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
