Increasing prevalence of urinary incontinence among the consistently rising geriatric population will spur the market demand. Notably, urinary incontinence, also called overactive bladder is not just prevalent among the elderly but in many older adults as well.  The main cause of this condition is bladder injury arising from urinary tract infections.
 

Additionally, increasing cases of prostate cancer will transform the urinary catheters market outlook. This type of cancer depicts symptoms like erectile dysfunction, troubled urination, and blood in urine and semen. The rising prostate cancer prevalence is highlighting the importance of timely treatment and bolstering the demand for urinary catheters. Preference among patients for self-catheterization, a rising number of ambulatory surgical centers, and supportive medical reimbursement policies are also estimated to aid the industry expansion.
 

Complications in catheterization procedures may restrain market growth

One of the prevalent nosocomial infections in hospitals or any medical setting is catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) – it comprises over 40% of institutionally acquired infections. Urinary catheterization is a complex procedure and needs to be carried out by skilled medical practitioners. Any type of negligence can lead to infections and other complications. The increasing fear of CAUTI and associated health issues along with the availability of alternative treatment options are majorly hampering the market share.

Based on products, the urinary catheters market is bifurcated into external catheters, intermittent catheters, and indwelling catheters. The intermittent catheters segment is expected to cross USD 4 billion by 2030. Increasing occurrence of abdomen malfunction and bladder-related chronic ailments leading to urinary retention will increase the product demand for effective treatment. The segment growth can also be credited to the fact that intermittent catheters pose a highly effective solution to a continuously draining catheter, prevent urinary tract infections, and help improve urinary incontinence in some patients.
 

Advanced properties of coated catheters to fuel urinary catheters market progression

In terms of device type, the industry is divided into uncoated and coated catheters. Of these, the coated segment is projected to reach USD 5 billion by 2030. This can be credited to the robust surge in hospitalization due to various diseases and the subsequent rise in cases of urinary tract infections. As per an NCBI report published in 2021, the incidence rate of HAIs (hospital-acquired infections) in urology units was found to be between 5% to 14%. Coated urinary catheters with properties that minimize bacterial adhesion and contamination help in safeguarding the patients against infections.
 

Preference for PVC urinary catheters to generate revenue for the industry

As per material, the urinary catheters market is classified into latex, silicone, PVC, and others. The PVC segment held major industry share of 38% in 2021 and is touted to witness significant growth over the forecast timeline. These catheters are made from plastic polymers and are translucent, enabling the observation of pigment or color of urine to detect urinary tract infection. A significant advantage of PVC is that this material is usually latex-free, making it suitable for people having latex allergies.
 

Cases of spinal cord injuries among adults to drive market share

Based on patient pool, the market is split into adults and pediatric. The adult segment is anticipated to surpass USD 6.5 billion by 2030. Numerous instances of spinal cord injuries lead to malfunctioning of nerves that control bladder functions, often requiring intermittent urinary catheterization. Also, adults are more prone to infections owing to medical history, multiple pregnancies, and obesity among others, which is fostering the market trends.
 

Pervasiveness of prostate enlargement to amplify urinary catheters market revenue

With regards to application, the industry is categorized into post-surgery, urinary incontinence, urinary retention, prostate enlargement, and others. The prostate enlargement application accounted for 20% business share in 2021 and is slated to grow at notable pace by 2030. This can be attributed to the increasing occurrence of prostate enlargement – a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland in men. The enlargement occurs due to high levels of estrogen within the prostate glands thereby promoting prostate cell growth.
 

Availability of advanced treatments to increase market value from hospitals

In terms of end-use, worldwide urinary catheters market is segmented into home care facilities, hospitals, long term care facilities, day care centers, ambulatory surgical centers, and clinics. The hospital segment is likely to exceed USD 3 billion by 2030. Increasing cases of urology disorders due to sedentary lifestyles are majorly responsible for segment growth. Additionally, the availability of advanced treatment and catheters in these settings is increasing consumer preference for hospitals, pushing the industry expansion.
