Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Urinary Leg Bags Market

  • The geriatric population is expected to increase the patient pool, worldwide, with various urinary disorders and diseases, which in turn is projected to drive the urinary leg bags market during the forecast period. Based on United Nations Report 2017, the number of geriatric population, aged 60 years and above, is expected to rise two-fold by 2050. The number is projected to reach 2.1 billion, an increase from 962 million recorded in 2017. Furthermore, the geriatric patient pool in developing regions, such as Latin America, Asia, and Africa, is expected to rise rapidly. For instance, the number of geriatric people in developing regions is estimated to increase by 154% between 2017 and 2050, exceeding 1.6 billion by 2050.
  • Increase in number of surgical procedures, owing to a rise in the prevalence of urologic diseases across the globe, is expected to drive the demand for urinary leg bags in the near future. Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH), also called prostate gland enlargement, is a highly common prostate condition affecting men of age 50 years and above. It causes bladder neck obstruction, which leads to urinary retention. According to The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), more than 250,000 surgical procedures for Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH) are performed every year in the U.S., leading to 2 million office visits. This is likely to propel the demand for urinary leg bags in the next few years.
  • Hospital-acquired or healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) are major concerns for health care professionals and institutions across the world. One in every ten patients hospitalized is affected by healthcare-associated infections, globally. For instance, healthcare associated infections (HAIs) leads to around 100,000 deaths per year in the U.S., making them the fourth-leading cause of death after heart disease, cancer, and stroke. Urinary leg bags-associated urinary tract infections result in increased morbidity, mortality, hospital cost, and length of stay, which in turn is further expected to restrain the market in the near future.

  • The latex segment is projected to account for a major share of the market by 2027. The segment is anticipated to expand at a notable CAGR during the forecast period.
  • Latex is a highly common material utilized for urinary leg bags, as it is inexpensive and possess high flexibility. However, pure latex urinary leg bags have increased allergy risk, rapid encrustations of mineral deposits, high surface friction, and irritation of urinary mucosa, leading to urinary tract infections.

Hospital Expansion Serves as Distinct Regional Growth Driver

  • The hospital pharmacies segment is expected to hold a prominent share of the market by 2027. The hospital pharmacies segment is projected to exhibit a positive market attractiveness during the forecast period. Rise in geriatric patient pool and the number of surgeries leading to high demand for urine leg bags in hospitals is expected to drive the segment.
  • For instance, it is estimated that approximately 25% of patients admitted to a hospital would require urological consumables at some point during their stay
