Incontinence Care Products Market Dynamics
The global incontinence care products market growth is driven by several factors including, rising geriatric population, increasing prevalence of urinary incontinence, new product innovations, rising adoption of incontinence products, among others.
The rising geriatric population is one of the major factors responsible for the rise in incidences of urinary incontinence which is expected to drive the demand for incontinence care product and devices market. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is more common in people aged 65 years or older (38%) than in people aged 45-64 years (13%) or 18-44 years (7%) according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Several countries are facing challenges due to the ongoing and the increasing demographic shift in age among their people. According to the Department of Economic and Social Affairs Population Division of United Nations, 2017, the world's population who are 60 years old will double and those of 80 years old will triple during the next 30 years.
Increasing technological advancement in product design, features of urinary catheters is one of the major factor boosting the growth of the urinary catheters market globally. UroShield (NanoVibronix) is introduced, which is a disposable ultrasound device designed to reduce the risk of catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI). UroShield is used to prevent CAUTIs in people with indwelling urinary catheters. The technology is likely to be used in hospitals, nursing homes and in a community setting. The technology would typically be administered by healthcare professionals who insert catheters. This may include registrars, general practitioners, urology nurse specialists, district and community nurses, and continence care nurses.
However, discomfort, stress and embarrassment in wearing incontinence products in social gatherings is a major concern for incontinence patients. Hence, the acceptance level of incontinence care products is quite low, especially among men. According to the SCA group, only 20% of all men with incontinence use care products that are available in the market. Creating awareness through various initiatives by NGOs, WHO, and other healthcare organizations will increase the acceptance for incontinence care products.

The non-absorbents are further classified into slings, catheters, drainage bags, stimulation devices, and others. The absorbents (Adult diapers) are segmented into underwear & briefs, drip collectors & bed protectors, pads & guards. The absorbents segment is estimated to hold the largest market share in the incontinence products owing to the high adoption and availability of adult diapers. Adult diapers are available in different types based on materials and absorbency required. Some patients require light incontinence protection for which thin pads and liners may be sufficient; however, in many instances, the incontinence can be heavy and require thick absorbent layers and think briefs and underwear. Materials used for making pads include polyester, hydrogel absorbent with viscose rayon, polypylene or polyethylene coverstock, fluff wood pulp and others. Adult diapers are used for both urinary incontinence and fecal incontinence. Some varieties of adult diaper products include all-in-one cloth diaper, contoured cloth diaper, prefold adult cloth diaper, disposable underwear, adult underwear, beltless underwear, briefs with fastening, briefs with non-fastenable tabs, pad and pant systems and male drip collectors for light incontinence. Absorbency booster pads that are commonly worn inside adult diapers for extra absorbency usually lack elastic and waterproof outer barriers. When the main adult diaper is unable to absorb the urine, these booster pads help in absorbing a few ounces of urine.
The catheters are further classified into indwelling (Foley) catheters, intermittent catheters, and external catheters. Among these, the intermittent catheter held a prominent share in 2019. These are made from PVC or vinyl, latex rubber, and silicone materials, and are intended for one-time use. The major users of intermittent catheters are individuals with spinal cord injury or people suffering from urinary incontinence.
