Continence Care Market size to exceed $27bn by 2030

  • Published Date: September 28, 2022

Continence Care Market size is anticipated to surpass USD 27 billion by 2030, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The rising geriatric population which is more susceptible to incontinence problems is driving the industry trends.  Due to comorbid conditions, functional decline, and cognitive impairment, incontinence becomes substantially more difficult as people age. As people age, their immune systems weaken and their resistance to some chronic diseases increases making diagnosis and treatment difficult.

Growing number of patients with urinary problems to augment the business statistics

Protective Incontinence Garments segment is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2022 to 2030.  These clothing often have permeable plastic film and waterproof backing to prevent skin irritation and other medical difficulties. The protective incontinence garments are mostly useful for patients with overactive bladders. Growth in the number of patients with limited bladder control and other urinary problems will foster market forecasts.

Superior product benefits to expand reusable segment share

Continence care market from reusable segment is set to surpass USD 5 billion by 2030. Patients with severe urinary incontinence require multiple disposables each day, thus prefer reusable continence care products. Reusable products are organic and treated with pesticides, fungicides, and herbicides to prevent contamination. Major market players are promoting long-lasting versions of continence care products and their replacement with reusable alternatives, which has increased demand for reusable incontinence solutions.
