Urine Flow Meters Market Size

Urine Flow Meters Market was valued at around USD 25.9 million in 2023 and is expected to register around 7.1% CAGR from 2024 and 2032. The increasing prevalence of urological disorders is anticipated to propel the market growth.

Urine Flow Meters Market

Urological disorders such as urinary tract infections (UTIs), urolithiasis, and benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) have seen a significant increase in prevalence. According to the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) Study, cases of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) rose by 60.4% until 2019. Numerous factors contribute to this rising prevalence, including obesity, diet, dyslipidemia, hormonal imbalances, sedentary lifestyles, diabetes, hypertension, underdiagnosis, and the growing number of aging populations. This increasing prevalence necessitates increased diagnosis, care, and ultimately drives business growth.

Urine Flow Meters Market Trends

Non-invasive urine flow measurement techniques and the integration of portable uroflowmeters with wireless connectivity represent technological advancements aimed at making urine flow meter devices more patient-centric, efficient, and comfortable.

  • Developments in technology have facilitated the emergence of non-invasive urine flow measurement techniques, enhancing patient comfort and convenience. For example, the Giotto Wireless Flow Meter, an innovative device, detects and analyzes urine flow and volume graphically and analytically, equipped with Bluetooth connectivity, such devices ensure seamless data transmission. These advancements, driven by technological progress, are currently trending in the market and are expected to propel further urine flow meters market growth.
  • Additionally, technological advancements have resulted in the development of smaller, more portable urine flow meters tailored for home use. These innovations address the demand for continuous monitoring, particularly in specific patient populations. For instance, the portable uroflowmeter with wireless connectivity, a handheld device intended for on-the-go measurements, integrates wireless connectivity for effortless data transmission and remote patient monitoring, providing convenience and user-friendliness. Consequently, the increasing popularity of such devices with enhanced features will drive the market growth.

Urine Flow Meters Market Analysis

Urine Flow Meters Market, By Type, 2021 – 2032 (USD Million)

Based on type, the wired connection type segment held is poised to reach USD 28.9 million by 2032.

  • Customer preference factor is among the primary attribute fueling the segmental growth. Some healthcare professionals and patients may simply prefer wired connection urine flow meters due to factors such as familiarity, perceived reliability, accuracy, compatibility, or personal comfort, thereby increasing their demand in the market.
  • Additionally, wired connection urine flow meters may be perceived as more cost-effective in terms of initial purchase and maintenance costs, particularly for healthcare facilities with limited budgets, hence may result in the increasing demand and segmental growth.

Based on product, the portable segment is likely to cross USD 23.2 million by 2032.

  • As the population ages, there is a growing prevalence of urological conditions such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and urinary incontinence among older adults. Portable urine flow meters cater to the needs of elderly patients who may have mobility limitations or prefer the convenience of home-based monitoring or home healthcare model. This increase in aging population is propelling the segmental growth.  
  • Additionally, with an increasing emphasis on home-based healthcare and remote patient monitoring devices, there is a growing demand for portable medical devices that allow patients to monitor their health conveniently from home, due to which their demand is increasing in the market.

Based on application, the BPH segment held leading revenue share in 2023 and is anticipated to reach USD 12.6 million by 2032.

  • The application of urine flow meters with cystometry has facilitated advancements in addressing the benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) condition. The integration of data obtained from urine flow meters and cystometry allows for a comprehensive evaluation of bladder dynamics and voiding function. This integrated approach empowers healthcare professionals to effectively differentiate between obstructive and non-obstructive causes of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in patients with BPH, thereby guiding treatment decisions more effectively and increasing the demand for these diagnostic tools.
  • Additionally, serial measurements using urine flow meters and optional cystometry enable the monitoring of treatment response over time. By tracking changes in urinary flow parameters and bladder function parameters, healthcare professionals can assess the effectiveness of treatment interventions and make necessary adjustments as needed. This streamlined treatment monitoring procedure attracts increased number of healthcare professionals and patients and contributes to the growth of the segment.
Urine Flow Meters Market, By End-use (2023)

The urine flow meters market by end-use is categorized into hospitals, clinics, home health care settings and others. The hospital segment exceeded USD 12.5 million in 2023.

  • Hospitals perform specialized procedures such as urodynamic studies, necessitating the utilization of urine flow meters. These devices are often integrated with other diagnostic equipment systems to enhance their application and utility. Consequently, hospitals are expected to drive the demand for these devices in the market.
  • Moreover, hospitals provide multidisciplinary care involving urologists, nephrologists, primary care physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals. Urine flow meters facilitate collaboration among these healthcare providers by providing objective data for diagnosis and treatment planning, hence anticipating the hospital facilities as the primary end users of the devices.
North America Urine Flow Meters Market, 2020 – 2032 (USD Million)

North America urine flow meters market accounted for over USD 10.3 million in 2023 and is predicted to witness substantial market growth.

  • The demographic shift toward an aging population in North America correlates with a heightened prevalence of urological disorders. With increase in aging population, individuals face an increased risk of conditions such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and urinary incontinence. Consequently, there is a rising demand for diagnostic and monitoring tools to address these health concerns.
  • Furthermore, there is a growing emphasis on early diagnosis and preventive care in North America's healthcare systems. Urine flow meters play a crucial role in the early detection of urological disorders, allowing for timely intervention and management, which contributes to their increased demand in the region.
