Market Overview

Rising prevalence of incontinence condition and ostomy procedures will remain key reasons for the expansion of the global skin barriers market size over the coming years. It has been estimated that, around 50-70% women suffering from urinary incontinence fail to seek medical evaluation and treatment. This is essentially because of the social stigma and taboo associated with this condition. The costs of managing urinary incontinence is estimated up to US$ 32 billion per year in the U.S., which can be greater than the combined costs of some of the prevalent cancers such as ovarian, breast, and cervical.

Another major reason for the growth of the global skin barriers market is increasing number of procedures leading to ostomy. Furthermore, it has been observed that, around a hundred thousand people in the U.S. undergo surgeries that result in ileostomy or colostomy each year. High incidence of ostomy surgeries in the U.S is due to growing prevalence of diverticular disease or colorectal cancer.

Rising Incidence of Pressure Ulcers/Injuries & Moisture-associated Skin Damage to Provide Sustained Growth

Prevalence of conditions such as Medical Adhesive-Related Skin Injury (MARSI), Moisture-Associated Skin Damage (MASD), and Pressure Ulcer/Injury (PU/I) will continue to provide steady growth for the global skin barriers market. MARSI is a preventable, less recognised condition caused due to removal of the upper skin layer due to excessive use of adhesives. For example, most skin injuries reported in neonatal intensive care units are because of these, and are more common among the elderly. On similar lines, prevalence of MASD incontinence-associated dermatitis in hospitalized patients is also a major concern. Skin barriers are an effective way to deal with the aforesaid injuries.
