According to a new study published by Polaris Market Research, the global ostomy care market is anticipated to reach USD 4.1 billion by 2024. Ostomy, also known as stoma is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of diseased portions of the urinary or gastrointestinal system and formation of an artificial opening in the stomach or abdomen to allow the elimination of body wastes. Colostomy, Ileostomy, and Urostomy are the three types of ostomy. In the colostomy, the opening is made from the large intestine to the abdominal wall so the feces can bypass through the anal canal. In Urostomy, the urine passes straight into a stoma bag and thus bypasses through urethra. In Ileostomy, the damaged part is removed from the ileum and diverted to an artificial opening in the abdominal wall.
The global ostomy care market is driven by the rising geriatric population and increased number of ostomy surgeries in bladder cancer, bowel cancer, and inflammatory bowel diseases. Moreover, rising number of patient awareness programs on the use of ostomy products, and new product innovation are some of the key factors responsible for the growth of the market over the forecast period. However, difficult reimbursement climate and increased cost of surgical care are factors expected to stifle the growth of the global ostomy care market through the foreseeable future.
