Urinary Catheters Market to exceed $8bn by 2030

  • Published Date: September 16, 2022

Urinary Catheters Market size is projected to reach USD 8 billion by 2030, according to the latest research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Rising occurrence of prostate cancer among elder males will be a major factor driving the industry outlook. The subsequent increase in the occurrence of painful symptoms such as erectile dysfunction, blood in urine and semen, and trouble in urination will bolster the demand for urinary catheters.

Increasing geriatric population with higher susceptibility to urinary incontinence will positively impact the demand for urinary catheters. Lately, a substantial percentage of patients opt for self-catheterization to empty the bladder without any professional help, which will further add to the industry expansion. A key factor contributing to increasing the market share is the rapid rise in the number of ambulatory surgical centers that offer one-day surgery with convenience, affordability, less waiting period, advanced surgical equipment, and skilled professionals.

The availability of substitute treatment methods may emerge as a major factor restraining the urinary catheters market value. Many of these alternative treatments are cost-effective and have minimum side effects which may increase consumer preference for these procedures, restricting product demand. The repeated occurrence of painful UTIs as a result of catheterization will be another factor hampering the industry landscape.
