Market Overview

Global Ostomy Drainage Bags market is expected to witness a CAGR of 3.6% during the forecast period. Certain factors that are driving the market growth include increasing incidence of inflammatory bowel disease and chron's disease, rapidly growing aging population, rising colorectal and bladder cancer cases.

According to statistics, in countries like Singapore, Malaysia, Sweden, Germany, the number of older adults has gone up substantially. This expanding pool of geriatric population across the world is fuelling the market as the elderly population is considered to be more vulnerable to different types of cancers. The geriatric population in the Asia-Pacific region was around 617.1 million in 2015, which accounted for more than half of the world’s total elderly population. It is estimated that, by 2050, Asia-Pacific will account for almost two-thirds of the world’s geriatric population.

However, according to the research article published in 2013, in ostomy care urology and continence care wound and skin care, it was stated that for ostomy care products, 15% was considered as national average insurance coverage in China. In most of the Asia-Pacific region, these products are not covered under insurance. Hence, reimbursement issues act as a restraining factor in the market.

Scope of the Report

An ostomy is a surgically created opening, called a stoma, in the body. It is a surgical opening for the collection of waste products, such as urine, stool, and mucus, from urinary bladder and intestine externally. Depending on the type of condition and needs of the patient an ostomy can be permanent or temporary. Different kinds of ostomies are named according to the organ involved, such as urostomy, colostomy, and ileostomy. The ostomy drainage bags provide means for the collection of waste from a surgically diverted biological system.

Key Market Trends

Colostomy Bags are Expected to Hold Significant Market Share in the Ostomy Type Segment

Colostomy bag is a small pouch used for closed colostomy procedures. It is used for the collection of waste from a surgically diverted biological system. There are mainly two types of colostomy bags, the disposable types and the re-useable bags. Disposable bags are more preferred due to certain advantages like removing and disposing of them is quite easy and they are easy to carry everywhere. Colorectal cancer is a leading cause of both temporary and permanent colostomy procedures and permanent ostomy has become less and less common for the management of colorectal cancers, as surgical methods have improved over the years. As the colostomy procedures are increasing, there is an increasing demand for the usage of colostomy bags, thus driving the studied market over the forecast period.
