They are improving at a consistent pace in terms of their scope of application and technology. They are usually recommended by the healthcare providers for people who are suffering from bladder disorders like urinary retention and urinary incontinence.

Market Potential and Pitfalls

With the augmenting incidences of urological disorders, new product development, hospitalization, wide acceptance of Foley catheters, new product launches, and augmenting demand from the emerging markets, the global Foley catheters market is estimated to flourish. Major market giants are highly investing in R&D activities and innovative product development in order to improve the existing structure and utilization of such catheters. Such factors are contributing to the market growth to a large extent. Catheters are constantly improving in terms of technology. With technological advancements, the scope of application in the healthcare industry is increasing throughout the appraisal period.

There has been significant growth in the prevalence of chronic diseases, urological ailments, cardiovascular diseases, and diabetes, which has further triggered the demand for Foley catheters across the globe. The market is also witnessing growth owing to the increasing occurrence of target diseases such as bladder obstruction, urinary incontinence, benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), urinary retention, and bladder cancers. Moreover, neurological disorders like multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and others result in bladder dysfunction which requires catheters for the urine to drain out of the body. With the geriatric population being prone to such conditions, the market is expanding throughout the assessment period. Additional factors gearing up the market growth are the high availability of improved catheters, rising cases of genital surgeries, and accelerating awareness among the global population. Reimbursement policies provided by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid in the U.S. has helped the market to expand.

On the contrary, the presence of alternative treatments for urinary incontinence combined with the potential risks associated with the use of Foley catheters is some of the top barriers likely to vitiate the market growth in the coming years.
