Ostomy Drainage Bags Market Dynamics and Trends

The global ostomy drainage bags market growth is driven by the rise in the occurrence of colorectal cancer, bladder cancer, urinary tract cancer, Crohn’s disease, inflammatory bowel disease, growth in the geriatric population that prefer ostomy drainage bags, preference for ostomy surgery in both youths & adults, and technical advancements in ostomy products drive the market growth.

The rapidly growing aging population will drive the market growth    

According to the World Ageing 2019 report, in 2019, there were around 703 million people aged 65 years or more in the world. The number of older persons is projected to double to 1.5 billion in 2050. Globally, the share of the population aged 65 years or over increased from 6% in 1990 to 9% in 2019. The proportion is projected to rise further to 16% by 2050. By 2050, 1 in 6 people in the world will be over the age of 65 years, up from 1 in 11 in 2019. Surging the elderly population base with colorectal cancer will boost the demand for ostomy drainage bags. In addition, various conditions such as diabetes and obesity thereby raise the demand for ostomy bags. Therefore, wide availability and increasing demand for drainage bags at home care settings will drive the overall market growth.

The industry players operating in the ostomy drainage bags market share are continuously focusing on introducing efficient and affordable products that will eventually drive the market demand. These manufacturers focus on developing a range of products that are widely used in the hospital settings and are indulging in advancement and innovation that propels the market growth. In addition, different players including ConvaTec, B. Braun, and Salts Healthcare among others are constantly aiming to introduce innovative products including colostomy bags and ileostomy bags. Hence, the above-mentioned aspects thereby augment the demand for ostomy drainage bags for better patient management. These factors will drive the growth of the market in the forecast period.

Reimbursement issues with the ostomy drainage bags are likely to hamper the market growth  

However, unsustainable reimbursement rate reductions limit both the services provided and the types and brands of ostomy supplies offered. This can lead to avoidable hospital readmissions, restriction of end users’ choice, product access, and access to care. HCPCS (Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System) reimbursement for ostomy appliances has been trending downward against research and development costs, causing increased associated costs for the end-user. Collectively, these restrictions ultimately add risk for adverse health outcomes that affect the total cost of care and cause inequity in access to care.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis on Ostomy Drainage Bags Market

According to a research study by F Marino et al., published in the British Journal of Surgery in June 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the numbers of patients with colorectal cancer needing a stoma are likely to increase. The recommendations of scientific societies encourage interventions with a lower risk of complications, short recovery time, and less likelihood of ICU admission, especially those who test positive for COVID-19.  Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic is worsening disability in stoma patients. The only good synergy between correct stoma care practices and adequate government provisions can help overcome this challenging situation.

Ostomy Drainage Bags Market Segmentation Analysis

The colostomy drainage bags segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2023-2030)         

In a colostomy, the colon is linked with the stoma, thereby bypassing the anus and rectum. A 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 the more preferred ones, due to certain advantages, like removing and disposing of them is quite easy and they are easy to carry everywhere. Moreover, the use of demand for these bags has increased over the years due to the increasing incidence of Inflammatory Bowel DiseDiseaseD). For instance, according to the research study by Thomas Joshua Pasvol et al., published in BMC Journal August 2020, in the United Kingdom, the incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Crohn’s disease (CD), and ulcerative colitis (UC) was found to be 28.6, 10.2 and 15.7/100,000 population, respectively. Moreover, in adolescents aged 10–16 years, the incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) was increased from 13.1 in 2000 to 25.4/100,000 population in 2018, respectively.

Technological advancements in the development next of novel devices are also boosting segment growth. For instance, according to a research study by P.-A. Lehur et al., published in Techniques in Coloproctology Journal August 2019, the stars study was conducted to assess a new type of two-piece appliance including a base plate and a “capsule cap” (CC) composed of a capsule cover and a folded collecting bag. The study results found that t new device has provided an increased control over bowel emptying at no risk in half of the trial population suggesting that an alternative approach to bag wearing is achievable. Hence, owing to the above-mentioned factors it is expected to drive the segment growth over the forecast period.

North America region holds the largest market share of the global ostomy drainage bags market

North America holds a major share of the ostomy drainage bags market and is expected to show a similar trend over the forecast period mainly due to increasing incidence of inflammatory bowel disease and Crohn’s disease, rapidly growing aging population, rising colorectal and bladder cancer, and presence of key market players in the region. The increasing burden of colorectal and bladder cancer in the North American region is also boosting the market growth. For instance, as per the estimates reported by the GLOBOCAN data, in the United States, there were around 155,008 (6.8%) new colorectal cancer cases in 2020. Similarly, in Canada, there were around 25,510 (9.3%) new colorectal cancer cases and 9,350 (3.4%) new bladder cancer cases in 2020.

In addition, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is one of the most diagnosed gastrointestinal diseases. According to the American College of Gastroenterology, in 2019, in the United States, it was estimated that 10-15% of the adult population suffers from irritable bowel syndrome symptoms, yet only 5-7% of adults have been diagnosed with the disease.

Furthermore, increasing investments in the medical devices sector and the existence of various favorable policies of reimbursements are further stimulating the progress of the market for ostomy drainage bags, in the North American region. Hence, owing to the above-mentioned factors it is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period.
