Urinary catheter is a tube used to collect urine from the bladder. The catheters are mostly recommended by the healthcare providers for people suffering from bladder disorders such as urinary incontinence and urinary retention. The catheters are usually made of latex, silicone, and polyurethane. Foley catheter comprises a balloon for holding the tube in the bladder for long term, whereas intermittent catheters provides short term catheterization. The urinary catheters are inserted into the urethra guiding through the bladder to drain out urine providing convenience to patients post-surgery. External catheters are advanced catheters preventing catheter associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI). Urinary catheters are also used during long surgical procedures for urine drainage for patients with other medical conditions such as spina bifida, multiple sclerosis and spinal injury, as the patients with neurological disease are at a risk for neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction known as neurogenic bladder.
Rising prevalence of benign prostate hyperplasia in adults is expected to drive the growth of global urinary catheters market
The urinary catheters market is expected to grow drastically due to rising occurrence of target diseases such as benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), urinary incontinence, urinary retention, bladder obstruction, and bladder cancers. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates, 2015, over 200 million people are suffering from bladder control problems due to different diseases that essentially require urinary catheterization in 2015. According to the National Association for Continence, one third of the men and women between the age group of around 55-65 years suffer from bladder control problem at some point in their adult life. Neurological disorders leading to bladder dysfunction also require catheters for urine drainage. The factors such as increasing genital surgeries, availability of improved catheters, and favorable reimbursement policies is expected to boost the market growth.
The urinary catheters market is expected to gain a significant traction over the forecast period with the launch of innovative catheters to minimize the rates of catheter associated infections. According to the study by Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control, 2014, catheter-acquired urinary infection is the source for about 20% health-care acquired infections in acute care facilities and over 50% in long term care facilities. In 2016, CompactCath launched smaller and discreet intermittent catheter aimed to address infection related complications and to improve self-catheterization experience.

Increasing number of prostate surgeries is expected to dominate the urinary catheters market in North America
Regional segmentation of the urinary catheters market by Coherent Market Insights comprises North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Africa. North America is expected to dominate the global market, owing to the rising cases of urinary continence and prostate surgeries. According to the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) estimates in 2013, urinary incontinence affected approximately 20 million American women and 6 million American men with more than 250,000 surgical procedures carried out for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). According to the Urology Care Foundation estimates in 2015, around 150,000 men in the U.S. undergo transurethral resection surgery of the prostate annually, thus increasing the demand for urinary catheters. In 2017, a national performance improvement program named Health Care-Associated Infections/Catheter-Associated Urinary Tract Infection was designed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Safety Program for Long-term Care to promote implementation of a CAUTI prevention program through state-based or regional collaborative in more than 500 nursing homes across the U.S.
Development of innovative products expanding patient choice is expected to rise the demand for urinary catheters market
Key players operating the urinary catheters market include Hollister Inc., Boston Scientific Corporation, Teleflex Inc., Coloplast, Cook Medical, B Braun Melsungen AG, and Medtronic. In 2016, Coloplast launched the new soft catheter SpeediCath Flex for men, which is designed for easy and hygienic insertion, making catheterization easy. Also, in 2015, Hollister Incorporated launched two new hydrophilic intermittent catheters, the VaPro Plus touch free and Apogee HC hydrophilic intermittent catheter. These catheters provides more options for healthcare professionals and the patients as they are easy-to-carry and store.
