Innovations in design, materials, and manufacturing processes can lead to the development of more comfortable, effective, and patient-friendly pessaries. Advancements such as adjustable pessaries or those integrated with sensors for real-time monitoring could open up new possibilities and market segments.

Global Vaginal Pessary Market Trends:

  • Shift towards non-surgical treatment options: Non-surgical therapy methods for pelvic organ prolapse and stress urine incontinence are becoming more popular. Vaginal pessaries, as a non-surgical intervention, are gaining popularity among patients and healthcare providers due to their effectiveness, safety, and non-invasiveness. This trend is driven by the desire to avoid surgical risks, reduce recovery time, and thus preserve natural anatomical structures.
  • Growing focus on patient comfort and quality of life: Patient comfort and quality of life have become key considerations in the development and selection of vaginal pessaries. Manufacturers are prioritizing designs that offer improved comfort, reduced discomfort in wearing, and minimal interference with daily activities. Patient feedback and preferences are being incorporated into product development to enhance overall patient satisfaction.
  • Rising demand for personalized treatment: There is an increasing demand for personalized treatment approaches in the vaginal pessary market. Patients and healthcare providers are recognizing the importance of customized pessaries to individual patient needs and anatomical requirements. Customizable pessaries that offer a range of sizes, shapes, and support levels are being developed to address this demand.

Global Vaginal Pessary Market Restraints:

  • Product recalls: The increase in the number of product recalls by the regulatory authorities is expected to limit the market growth during forecast period. For instance, in February 2022, Cooper Surgical, Inc., a medical device company announced the class 2 device recall of Milex Gellhorn/Flexible ShortStem Pessary with & without kit. The reason behind the recall was the affected Milex Gellhorn pessaries that were incorrectly manufactured with a long stem (2.170), instead of a short stem (1.670 or 1.960 nominal height), as was required. The length discrepancy does not meet the released print dimensions.

Counterbalance: The manufacturing companies are expected to standardize the manufacturing and production processes of the medical devices to ensure product quality and stability.

  • Patient compliance and discomfort: Achieving and maintaining patient compliance with pessary use can be challenging. Some patients may experience discomfort, irritation, or difficulty with insertion or removal, which can affect adherence to treatment. Addressing patient concerns, providing proper education and support, and offering a range of pessary options can help overcome these challenges.
