Overactive Bladder Treatment Market Research, 2031

The global overactive bladder treatment market size was valued at $2.4 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach $3.5 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 3.6% from 2022 to 2031. Overactive bladder (OAB) is a medical condition in which the muscles of the bladder contract involuntarily, causing a sudden and uncontrollable urge to urinate. People with OAB often experience urinary urgency, frequency (the need to urinate more often than usual), and sometimes incontinence (leakage of urine before reaching the toilet).  

Furthermore, OAB can be caused by a variety of factors, including nerve damage, bladder irritation, and medication side effects. It is a common condition that can affect both men and women of all ages, but it is more prevalent in older adults. However, treatment such as medications is available that helps in relieving the symptoms of OAB.

Market dynamics
Overactive bladder treatment market trends that drive the growth of the market include increase in incidence of overactive bladder, changes in human lifestyle, and an increase in geriatric population. Moreover, increase in demand for medications such as anticholinergics and Botox for the treatment of overactive bladder and increase in awareness among the population regarding the condition and its treatment options are the factors that drive the growth of the market. 

In addition, growing trends towards non-invasive treatment options, huge unmet medical needs, and increase in research and development are boosting the overactive bladder treatment market growth. There is an increase in the geriatric population around the globe which is one of the major driving factors for the growth of the overactive bladder treatment market. As the geriatric population is more prone to various chronic conditions including neurological dysfunction due to aging, there is a huge chance of the geriatric population suffering from an overactive bladder, which increases the demand for medications to treat OAB. Thus, this propels the overactive bladder treatment market size.  

Although various factors drive the growth of the overactive bladder treatment market, the presence of alternate techniques for treatment is causing hindrance to the growth of the market. There are surgical treatments available for OAB, along with physical therapies to relieve the symptoms of an overactive bladder. In addition, various drugs used for the treatment of overactive bladder conditions are associated with few side effects. Side effects associated with anticholinergic drugs include dry mouth and constipation, heartburn, blurry vision, rapid heartbeat, flushed skin, and trouble during urination. 

Thus, these factors act as a restraint to the overactive bladder treatment market. On the other hand, an increase in investment by the key market players in developing regions and technological advances in the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals is anticipated to boost during the overactive bladder treatment market forecast period.

The COVID-19 outbreak had a positive impact on growth of the global overactive bladder treatment industry. COVID-19 associate cystitis (CAC) significantly contributed to bladder dysfunction and also led to organ-specific complications in the patient. This positively impacted the overactive bladder treatment market during the pandemic and post pandemic. On the other hand, COVID-19 pandemic was one of the biggest challenges for the healthcare system. Outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had led to partial or complete shutdown of production facilities, owing to prolonged lockdown in major countries such as the U.S., China, Japan, India, and Germany. This also affected the manufacturing of overactive bladder medications to some extent. However, several developed and developing countries managed to counter the effects of the pandemic by implementing various strategies. This led to regularization of supply chain of medications and medical devices by key players after the pandemic, which will boost the growth of overactive bladder treatment industry.
