Global Male External Catheters Market to Reach US$ 3.2 Billion by 2032, Stimulated by Increasing Adoption of Telemedicine

September 26, 2023 | Medical Devices

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Male External Catheters Market by Type (Disposable External Catheters, Reusable External Catheters), Application (Hospitals, Home Care, and Others), and Region 2024-2032,” the global male external catheters market size reached US$ 1.7 Billion in 2023. Male external catheters are sheath-like devices that are worn externally over the penis to collect urine. They comprise a tube or a pipe that allows urine to flow from the catheter into a collection bag or another appropriate receptacle. They are convenient and designed for short-term use, such as post-surgery recovery. They are essential tools in healthcare settings and for individuals who face challenges with bladder control. They are typically made of medical-grade silicone or latex, ensuring biocompatibility, and minimizing the risk of skin irritation or allergies. They feature an adhesive lining on the inner surface to securely attach the device to the male genitalia. They help individuals regain their independence and confidence by managing incontinence effectively. They decrease the complications of urinary tract infections (UTIs) and skin irritation, as they do not enter the body.

Global Male External Catheters Market Trends:

At present, the increasing demand for male external catheters, as they are a cost-effective solution for long-term incontinence management compared to disposable absorbent products, represents one of the crucial factors impelling the growth of the market. Besides this, the rising employment of male external catheters, as they enable men to manage their incontinence independently and reduce the burden on healthcare providers and caregivers, is propelling the growth of the market. In addition, the growing awareness about the beneficial aspects of male external catheters in terms of convenience, hygiene, and improved quality of life is offering a favorable market outlook. Apart from this, increasing technological advancements in catheter design, materials, and manufacturing processes for enhancing product performance and patient comfort are supporting the growth of the market. Additionally, the rising trend toward home healthcare and the adoption of telehealth services to manage urological complications is bolstering the growth of the market. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 3.2 Billion by 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 6.66% during 2024-2032.
