Global Intermittent Catheters Market to Reach US$ 4.7 Billion by 2032, Impelled by Increasing Urinary Incontinence Cases

September 29, 2022 | Healthcare

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Intermittent Catheters Market Report by Product (Uncoated Intermittent Catheter, Coated Intermittent Catheter), Indication (Urinary Incontinence, Surgery (Major Surgery), Spinal Cord Injury, and Others), Category (Male Length Catheter, Kids Length Catheter, Female Length Catheter), End User (Hospitals, Medical Research Centers, Ambulatory Surgical Centers), and Region 2024-2032,” the global intermittent catheters market reached a value of US$ 2.7 Billion in 2023. 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.

Global Intermittent Catheters Market Trends: 

The global market is majorly driven by the increasing number of urinary incontinence cases. In line with this, the rising geriatric population and the launch of novel catheters are positively influencing the market. Furthermore, the growing cases of tumors in the urinary tract or reproductive organs are catalyzing the product demand. Apart from this, the increasing awareness and the widespread adoption of appropriate reimbursement schemes offered by numerous healthcare facilities are propelling the market. Moreover, heavy investments in research and development activities to create cost-effective and novel urinary catheters are creating a positive outlook for the market. Besides this, the launch of more efficient, less invasive, and newer catheters is strengthening the market across the globe. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 4.7 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.02% during 2024-2032.
