Incontinence is a term that is used for any accidental or involuntary loss of urine from the bladder. The health incontinence condition starts when a bladder becomes incapable of storing a supposed amount of urine or when bladder muscles are unable to control the discharge of urine. Incontinence in adults can occur in both men and women with aging being one of the major issues of occurrence.

According to publisher estimates, the Global Adult Incontinence Products Market - which grew from approximately US$ 7 Billion in 2017 to approximately US$ 10 billion in 2022 - is forecasted to grow further into approximately US$ 15 Billion opportunities by 2028, owing to the growing diseases like diabetes, urinary, surgery, prostate.

Urinary incontinence (UI) is one of the major driving factors of the adult incontinence products market. UI is the accidental loss of urine. UI condition can occur at any age, but it is more common in women over the age of 50. Urgency incontinence, stress incontinence, functional incontinence, and overflow incontinence are a few types of UI. According to National Association for Continence, over 25 million adult Americans experience temporary or chronic urinary incontinence. UI can be a temporary condition that results from an underlying medical condition. It can range from the discomfort of slight loss of urine to severe, continuous wetting.

Low awareness and social stigma about the usage of incontinence products, are likely to restrain the market growth. Furthermore, adult diapers can cause rashes, allergies, and infections, which can reduce their usage. Adult diapers get dirty and smelly when they absorb perspiration and other fluids such as urine retaining moisture, and wetness, potentially causing diaper rashes and bacterial infections.

COVID-19 has helped in the growth of the adult incontinence products market. Since the start of the pandemic, awareness regarding health and medical condition is surging, which helped the adult incontinence products market to accelerate. As the pandemic is slowing down, it is estimated that the adult incontinence products market remains significant in the forecasted period, owing to the growing urine, and bladder-related cases worldwide.
