Global External Urine Management Products Market Analysis
The external urine management products market expansion can be attributed to the increase in use of these devices among patients suffering from urine incontinence, as well as the rise in prevalence of chronic illnesses among people globally. Some chronic illnesses increase the incidence of urine incontinence in the elderly population. Parkinson's disease, diabetes, dementia, stroke, prostate cancer, and kidney disease are among the chronic conditions related to urine incontinence. The increasing prevalence of these disorders is predicted to increase the risk of urine incontinence, driving demand for external urine management products. According to a World Health Organization (WHO) report, the prevalence of urine incontinence recorded in population-based research ranged from 9.9% to 36.1%, and it is twice in older women as compared to older men. All these factors are anticipated to boost the external urine management products market share.
External urine management products such as catheters, liners, pads, and diapers, due to their dryness, may cause allergies if used for an extended period, especially during the recovery process. External urine management products such as diapers and pads become filthy when they take up body fluids like urine, retaining moisture and perhaps leading to rash and bacterial infections. In extreme circumstances, they can potentially lead to the development of catheter-associated urinary tract infections and urethral fistula. All these factors are anticipated to hamper the external urine management products market growth.
The use of external management products is driven by an increasing elderly population, favorable reimbursement policies, and the rising prevalence of urological illnesses. The prevalence of urologic diseases such as urine retention, benign prostatic hyperplasia, cystitis, urinary incontinence (UI), and kidney stones, which lead to bladder dysfunction, is steadily increasing. Rise in healthcare expenditures, as well as technological advances in prosthetic urinary sphincters, are expected to drive market expansion. The growth in prevalence of cardiovascular illnesses and severe aortic stenosis are two major contributors tothe growth of the external urine management products market.

The gender segment is further classified into male and female. The female segment accounted for a dominating market share in 2021. The growth of this segment is attributed to females being more prone to stress incontinence than men. The adoption of feminine hygiene products has increased considerably owing to growing awareness regarding menstruation hygiene etiquette, rise in prevalence of urinary incontinence, and the availability of low-cost and easy-to-use disposable goods. There is an increase in female acceptance of female external catheters, pads, and catheters that are specially designed for females. These factors are driving demand and supply for female external urine management solutions and are expected to influence the external urine management products market size during the forecast period.
The product type segment is further divided into urine collection catheters & bags and pads& diapers. The pads& diapers segment accounted for a dominating market share in 2021.Pads and diapers are highly absorbent as they are manufactured by using a variety of materials, including biodegradable ones, which makes them extremely comfortable to wear and remove. Therefore, consumers are more attracted to pads and diapers. Characteristics of external urine management products such as ease of use and biodegradability are bound to create opportunities for the growth of the pads & diapers segment during the forecast period.
The product category segment is further classified into disposable and non-disposable. The disposable segment accounted for a dominating market share in 2021. The increase in the number of people suffering from diarrhea, bowel illnesses, and nerve damage resulting in fecal incontinence all contribute to the increase in the usage of disposable products. Furthermore, the ease of use and disposal of disposable incontinence goods such as adult diapers and protective incontinence garments are boosting market growth. These are expected to be the primary factors influencing the external urine management products market size during the forecast period.
The distribution channel segment is further divided into online channels and offline channels. The offline channels segment accounted for a dominating market share in 2021. Retail stores or medical stores offer a variety of consumer goods such as pads and diapers. In addition, hypermarkets/supermarkets provide appealing discount offers. Products from numerous brands are available through offline channel, allowing people to select a suitable brand based on their preferences. Various brands also offer products at competitive prices in the offline channel. All these factors are expected to boost the growth of the offline segment during the forecast period.
The end user segment is further classified into hospitals, diagnostic laboratories & clinics, and homecare settings. The hospitals segment accounted for a dominating market share in 2021. The segment’s growth is due to an increase in the number of patients hospitalized with chronic renal disease. As the number of renal diseases that ultimately result in urinary disease cases increases, so does the hospitalization rate. Patients prefer to obtain their urine management products from hospital pharmacies since they are close to the hospitals. Such factors are expected to generate massive growth opportunities for the segment during the forecast period.
The external urine management products market in Asia-Pacific is projected to witness the fastest growth in 2021.Oneof the major factors driving the regional external urine management products market growth is the transformation of Asia-Pacific into a versatile and business-friendly hub.
