Significant Patient Base Suffering from Ulcerative Colitis and Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Over the years, the prevalence of ulcerative colitis and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is increasing, especially among the geriatric population. According to the United Ostomy Association in 1998, average age of the patients living with colostomy was 70.6 years, an ileostomy was 67.8 years, and urostomy was 66.6 years.

Using these statistics, the average age of a patient in the U.S. with an ostomy is 68.3 years. These diseases are common in developed economies, particularly in the urban areas. During and after the surgery, ostomy drainage bags are used to control incontinence and discharge the wastes. Thus, the growing geriatric population is projected to drive the growth of the ostomy drainage bags market.

Increasing Prevalence of Cancer, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, and Renal Dystrophy

With the increasing prevalence of diseases such as cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, and renal dystrophy, the demand for ostomy surgeries is increasing. In 2015, it was reported that 1.3% of U.S. adults (i.e., 3 million) were diagnosed with IBD (either Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis), in which ostomy drainage bags play a crucial role.

Additionally, the growing adoption of cecostomy, ascending, loop, and double barrel has increased the use of ostomy drainage bags for waste removal pre- and post-surgeries. Usage of ostomy drainage bags ensure speedy recovery and timely diagnosis of both IBD and ulcerative colitis. These factors are projected to drive the growth of the ostomy drainage market during the forecast period.

Growing Investments by Manufacturers for Product Innovation and Development

Due to increasing demand for ostomy, healthcare providers and patient care centers are making efforts to increase their potential in providing ostomy care to the patients. Also, the manufacturers are indulging in innovation and advancement, and also keeping a constant supply of medical accessories, including ostomy drainage bags. A cycle of innovation of ostomy pouching systems appeared until early-to mid-1950s, which transformed the life of the patients.

A decade later, ostomy management took a forward leap when ConvaTec introduced a two-piece pouching system with a low-profile body-side Stomahesive wafer incorporating a snap-lock flange. Over the years, many research works based on feedback from people battling with ostomy complications have prompted to develop advanced versions of two-piece coupling systems.
