Urinary incontinence is a highly prevalent condition and is considered to be an underreported problem that increases with age that affects nearly 50% of the geriatric population. Urinary incontinence is categorized into four major types namely stress urinary incontinence, urge urinary incontinence, mixed urinary incontinence, and functional urinary incontinence. Stress urine leakage is associated with increased abdominal pressure from laughing, sneezing, coughing, climbing stairs, or other physical factors that assert stress on the abdominal cavity. Whereas, urge incontinence is the involuntary leakage accompanied by urgency. Among the four above mentioned types of urinary incontinence, stress and urge are most commonly prevalent among men and women.
Urinary incontinence has a major impact on the emotional, psychological, and social life; maximum number of patients suffering from urinary incontinence cannot perform regular activities confidently. This propels the development of effective solutions for the treatment of the same. According to the Urology Care Foundation, a quarter to a third of men and women in the U.S. suffer from urinary incontinence per year. This also indicates that approximately 33 million of the U.S. residents have overactive bladder that represent symptoms of urgency and frequency leading to the urge in the usage of urinary incontinence devices.
Some of the other factors responsible for substantial market growth include development of innovative urinary incontinence devices, increase in aging population coupled with high risk of urological conditions, and increase in the urinary incontinent patients transitioning from conventional solutions to advanced surgical treatments. Factors such as lack of awareness regarding novel developments in the urinary incontinence devices and post-operative complications associated with the devices restrict the market growth to a certain extent. Moreover, growth in healthcare expenditures in the developing economies offers lucrative opportunities for the market players to invest in these economies.
Vaginal slings generated the highest revenue in 2016, accounting for about two-fifths of the total market. This is attributed to the high contribution of the conventional vaginal slings in the vaginal slings market owing to the high preference for the use of biomaterials in surgical treatment of incontinence. Advancements in the conventional vaginal slings assist in eliminating the post-operative complications associated with the vaginal sling surgeries and several key players are developing conventional slings using advanced synthetic materials to meet the patients requirement. In addition, the advanced vaginal slings have witnessed increased adoption in the surgical treatment of urinary incontinence among women owing to their minimal invasive nature.
Based on incontinence type, stress incontinence generated the highest revenue in 2016 accounting for about half of the total share of the market and is anticipated to continue this trend throughout the forecast period. Pregnancy as well as childbirth result in the stretching and weakening of a womans pelvic floor muscles which causes stress urinary incontinence. In addition, prostate surgeries in men can also result in stress urinary incontinence. This has made stress urinary incontinence the most prevalent conditions among men and women.
