Post-operative complications of vaginal sling surgeries, such as infections, pelvic pain, adhesions, dyspareunia, and vulvar or vaginal disfigurement after vaginal surgery, and lack of awareness among women regarding the availability of vaginal slings are expected to restrict the market growth during the forecast period. This decreases the demand as well as adoption of vaginal slings in surgical treatment of urinary incontinence among women which hampers the market growth.
The initiative taken by government for the improvement in healthcare infrastructure and increase in the number of gynecological and urological centers cater the demand for vaginal sling procedures and drive the growth of the vaginal slings market share. In addition, high demand for single incision surgeries for incontinence management propels the growth of the market as patients prefer ambulatory surgical centers for single incision vaginal sling surgeries. Rise in disposable income and growth in demand for preventive measures against urinary incontinence present various opportunities for manufacturers of the vaginal slings market, where the technologically advanced vaginal sling product offers profitable opportunities for the expansion of the market. Moreover, increase in the number of hysterectomy cases, large number of women with early onset of menopause, and increase in obese population propel the market growth as women suffering from aforementioned health conditions are more susceptible to urinary incontinence.
