The global male external catheters market size reached US$ 1.62 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 2.53 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 7.6% during 2023-2028. The growing geriatric population across the globe, continual advancements in medical technology and the introduction of male external catheters with additional features, such as anti-leak mechanisms and improved adhesion, are key factors driving the market.
Male external catheters are medical devices designed to manage urinary incontinence in men. It is a non-invasive alternative to traditional indwelling catheters requiring insertion into the urethra. It consists of a sheath made of soft, flexible material, such as silicone or latex, placed over the penis. The sheath has an adhesive lining that helps it adhere securely to the skin, forming a leak-resistant seal. At the end of the sheath, a drainage tube connects to a collection bag, which collects the urine. One of the primary advantages of male external catheters is their convenience and ease of use. They can be applied without medical professionals and do not require any insertion into the body. This makes them a preferred option for individuals wishing to manage urinary incontinence at home or those with limited mobility. Using male external catheters also reduces the risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs) when compared to indwelling catheters. Since the device does not enter the urethra, the likelihood of introducing bacteria into the urinary tract is significantly lower. They are available in various sizes and styles to accommodate different individuals and preferences. Some may have features, such as anti-twist valves or non-slip adhesives, to enhance their performance.
Male External Catheters Market Trends:
The male external catheters market has witnessed significant growth globally, driven by several factors contributing to their increasing adoption. These factors can be attributed to both demographic trends and continual advancements in medical technology. The aging population is one of the primary drivers of the market. As the global population ages, the prevalence of urinary incontinence in older men is rising. Male external catheters offer a practical solution for managing incontinence, allowing individuals to maintain their independence and quality of life. As a result, the growing elderly population, particularly in developed countries, has created a substantial market demand for these devices. In addition, manufacturers have introduced innovative designs and materials to improve the functionality and comfort of these devices. Developing softer, more flexible materials has enhanced the user experience, thereby reducing skin irritation and discomfort. Additionally, the introduction of male external catheters with additional features, such as anti-leak mechanisms and improved adhesion, have made the catheters more reliable and leak-resistant, thus driving their adoption. Furthermore, the increasing awareness and acceptance of male external catheters among healthcare professionals and patients have contributed to the market growth.
