Drainage bottle is the medical device used to collect and dispose of fluids that accumulate in the body post-surgery, or injury. This bottle is used when the body is producing an excess of fluids that are not removed naturally. This bottle is designed to be attached to a tube or a catheter that is connected to the body. It can be of plastic or glass and is either disposed of or used again based on the type. This bottle contain markings on them, to measure the amount of fluids drained. These systems contain a catheter, a collection bottle, and a vacuum source that provides suction. Disposable drainage bottles are used more widely due to their convenience and low risk of infections.
The prevalence of various chronic diseases including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, and others is on the rise all over the globe. These diseases need surgical procedures, which may drive the market share for drainage bottles. These procedures require drainage bottles to collect the excess fluids that get retained after surgery. The cases of deep vein thrombosis, a condition in which there are blood clot formations in the veins are increasing rapidly. This may act as a major driver for the market. Other than this, in developing countries, road accidents and injuries are increasing due to various reasons. These accidental injuries, bruises, blisters, and burn wounds that cause retention of fluid at the site may also act as a driving factor for this market. There have been various awareness programs directing the importance of infection control. Due to this, an increase in the use of disposable drainage bottles may also benefit the market.
The drainage bottle market is anticipated to show steady growth during the forecast period, but some factors may cause hindrance to its growth. Even though the use of drainage bottles is designed to reduce the risk of infection, there may still be a chance of transmission, especially for reusable bottles. This could limit the use of such bottles, where infection control is of great concern. Also, there are various strict regulatory requirements on medical devices by the government. This can be challenging for manufacturers to bring newer products to the market. Environmental concerns can also limit the growth of this market. The single-use or plastic bottles may lead to pollution and cause some environmental concerns if not disposed of properly. Such challenges may slow the growth of this market during the forecast period.
The prevalence of chronic diseases that require drainage procedures can provide lucrative opportunities for key players to increase their market share in the drainage bottle market. Surgical procedures like mastectomy and lymph node dissection may require drainage of excess fluid from the surgical site. Other chronic conditions like cancer, heart failure, and kidney diseases may provide opportunities for the market. Other than this, the aging population in the Asia-Pacific region and the growing investments in the healthcare segment may also create opportunities for an upsurge in this market.New product launches to flourish in the market
