The Anal Irrigation Systems Market is poised to grow at a CAGR of 3% over the forecast period.

The COVID-19 outbreak has notably affected the anal irrigation market in all the major regions in the world as the focus of the healthcare and medical device industry has shifted from their primary businesses to developing and supplying sustainable solutions for the management of the pandemic. In addition, the adverse impact on logistics, hampering the import/export and supply chains, is also expected to obstruct the growth of the anal irrigation systems market. On the other hand, the decrease in urological consultations during the COVID-19 outbreak also strongly impacted the market. For instance, the article published in April 2021 mentioned that urological activities decreased by 41% during the initial stages of the pandemic. Such a significant decrease in urological consultations also impacted anal irrigation systems during the initial stages of the pandemic. However, the resumption of urological activities after the relaxation of the strict lockdown is expected to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period.

The anal irrigation systems market is expected to show steady growth due to the increasing incidence of colorectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease, the minimally invasive nature of therapy, and increasing technological advancements. For instance, the article published in Elsevier in October 2021 mentioned that an estimated 1.93 million colorectal cancers are diagnosed worldwide. On the other hand, the increasing geriatric population across the globe, who are more likely to be more prone to constipation, fecal incontinence, and conditions, is expected to drive the demand for anal irrigation systems, thereby contributing to market growth. For instance, as per the WHO data published in October 2021, by 2030, the number of people aged 60 years or over is expected to reach 1.4 billion, and the same number is projected to reach 2.1 billion by 2050. Such a rising geriatric population prone to developing bowel disorders is expected to drive the demand for anal irrigation systems, thereby contributing to the market's growth.

Additionally, the increasing product approvals from the regulatory authorities are expected to contribute to the market's growth. For instance, in December 2021, USMIMA SL received the US FDA approval for the first product MOWOOT II intestinal transit management system. Mowoot device demonstrated its safety, a high clinical responder state, and improvements in patient's quality of life.

However, factors such as the possibility of bowel perforation and lack of awareness among emerging countries are expected to hinder the growth of the market.

Anal Irrigation Systems Market Trends

Balloon Catheter Devices is Expected to Hold Significant Market Share in the Anal Irrigation Systems Market During the Forecast Period

Balloon catheter systems are expected to hold a major market share as they are more suitable for patients who have difficulty keeping a cone in place or need a better seal to instill the irrigation water and are designed to use over the toilet. The balloon catheters are more convenient to carry anywhere and suitably fit with a changing lifestyle.

Demand for balloon catheters is expected to increase owing to the rising prevalence of anal fissures worldwide. Balloon catheters are used to treat various types of anal injury, including fecal incontinence and chronic constipation, as a diagnostic imaging procedure to assess a patient's anal function. Such usage of balloon catheters in the treatment of various anal injuries is expected to boost segment growth. As per the CDC article published in July 2022, chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC) is a common functional disorder associated with affecting about 10-17% of the world population, with a higher prevalence among females and elderly people, and may cause disabling symptoms annually. Thus, the high burden of fecal incontinence and chronic constipation among the global population is expected to contribute to the growth of the studied segment.

The rising product launches by various key market players to meet the growing demand are also projected to drive the growth of this segment. For instance, in July 2021, Medtronic PLC introduced a novel type of catheter into their large arsenal, a balloon catheter that can elute drugs at the target site. This product, introduced into the European market for CAD by the name of Prevail Drug-Coated Balloon, improves the usability of the catheter as well as its deliverability into complex anatomies. The drug on the balloon gets absorbed into the target arterial tissue and tries to decrease the chances of in-stent restenosis.

North America is Expected to Hold Significant Market Share in the Anal Irrigation Systems Market During the Forecast Period

North America has been dominating the global anal irrigation systems market and is expected to be a prominent region in terms of market share over the forecast period. The market in the region is expected to expand rapidly due to robust healthcare infrastructure and a significant presence of major players in the region. In addition, the presence of a large number of the patient population with inflammatory bowel diseases and the quick adoption of new technologies. For instance, as per WHO data published in August 2021, there are approximately 70,000 new cases of Inflammatory bowel disease being diagnosed every year in the United States. Additionally, the data published by the Public Health Agency of Canada in July 2021 mentioned that nearly 260,000 Canadians are diagnosed with inflammatory bowel diseases in 2021. Such prevalence of inflammatory bowel diseases among the population of North America is expected to contribute to the growing demand for anal irrigation systems, thereby fueling the market's growth.

Furthermore, the rising delay in diagnosis in countries such as Mexico is also expected to drive the demand for minimally invasive procedures such as anal irrigation systems, thereby boosting the market growth. For instance, the NCBI article published in December 2021 mentioned that there was a 35.2% delay in diagnosis for Inflammatory bowel disease among the Mexican population in 2021 from the public healthcare system and a 16.9% delay in the private healthcare system in Mexico. Such delayed diagnosis is expected to give rise to higher demand for anal irrigation systems in this region, thereby contributing to the growth of the market in this region over the forecast period.
