Indwelling urinary catheter (IUC) is a closed sterile system with a catheter and retention balloon that is inserted either through the urethra or suprapubically to allow for bladder drainage.
Rapid technological advancements are carried out in the medical sector across the globe. With the rising number of patients suffering from chronic bladder issues and rise in pelvic surgeries is increasing demand for advanced medical devices & equipment. Neurogenic Bladder (NGB) dysfunction may arise as a result of several neurologic conditions. NGB has been found in 40% to 90% of patients in the United States with multiple sclerosis (MS), 37% to 72% of patients with Parkinsonism, and 15% of patients with stroke. It is estimated that 70% to 84% of patients with spinal cord injuries have at least some degree of bladder dysfunction. Hospitals in developed and developing countries are witnessing high rate in percentage of in-patients related to pelvic problems. According to Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research (MFMER), each year, Mayo Clinic doctors treat nearly 3,000 women with pelvic organ prolapse. Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) affects millions of women; approximately 200,000 inpatient surgical procedures for prolapse are performed annually in the United States. These factors are contributing to the rise in demand for indwelling catheters from hospitals and clinics which is a major factor expected to drive the growth of the global indwelling catheter market.
Major players are investing highly for product development activities; their approach towards introduction of innovative solutions that aid healthcare professionals in performing better surgery are factors expected to support the growth of indwelling catheter market.
In 2019, CATHETRIX, a developer of urinary (Foley) smart catheter fixations introduced world's first Foley catheter stabilizer “FoleySafe” which actively prevents possible damage to the bladder and urethra from accidental urinary catheter extraction. This product launch is expected to help the company to enhance the business and increase the customer base.
In 2020, Bactiguard, a medical device company launched a new urinary catheter “BIP Foley TempSensor”. BIP Foley TempSensor is equipped with an extra channel that contains a temperature sensor that is connected to an external monitor. The product launch helped the company to enhance the business presence and increase the customer base.
Factors such as quality issues and availability of low cost regional product are factors expected to hamper the growth of global indwelling catheter market. In addition, high risk of infection due to use of catheters is expected to challenge the growth of target market. However, rapid product advancement by major players and increasing strategic partnership activities in order to enhance the business presence and track the untapped market in developing countries are factors expected to create new opportunities for players operating in indwelling catheter market over the forecast period. In addition, surging demand for minimally invasive surgeries is expected to support the revenue transaction of the target market.
