Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/7whfpv/incontinence_care)
has announced the addition of the "Incontinence
Care and Management Market Assessment Report - Global Size, Share,
Competitive Landscape, Future Prospects and Forecast from 2013-2019"
report to their offering.
According to the team, the global incontinence care and management
products market was worth $ 8.6 billion in 2012 and is expected to reach
$ 14.0 billion in 2019, growing at a CAGR of 7.2% from 2013 to 2019.
The inability to control the evacuative urination or defecation
functions of the body is known as incontinence. The market for
incontinence care and management products is segmented into adult
diapers, incontinence catheters, drainage bags, artificial urinary &
bowel sphincters, slings, pessaries, clamps, sacral nerve and electrical
stimulation. In 2012, the market for adult diapers accounted for the
largest share by revenue of the total market at more than 70%. This is
attributed mainly to the rise in the elderly population with urinary and
fecal incontinence problems, increased awareness of personal hygiene,
large range of products both for men and women, development of
innovative products that provide better comfort and hygiene, easy
availability of products, as well as innovative environment friendly
products such as biodegradale, light and fluffless adult diapers.
Geographically, the market has been segmented into North America,
Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW). North America was
estimated to be the largest market in 2012 valued at $3,057.3 million
and is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 6% from 2013 to 2019. It
accounted for a share of 35.4% of the global incontinence care and
management products market. Absorbent product brands such as Depend,
Poise and Tena are leading the absorbents segment due to extensive use
by adults in North America. A major restraint for adult diapers is the
feeling of embarrassment in using these products by adults. This scene
is however changing with manufacturer's changing their approach in
selling absorbent products. Aged population is a major driver and the
Asian market is teeming with opportunities for incontinence products due
to a very large population of aged people.
In terms of market share analysis, the global incontinence care and
management products market is highly fragmented with different players
dominating different market segments. Numerous small and large players
are competing closely to maintain their shares in the already mature
market segments. Various product segments in this market have their own
prominent market leaders in terms of market share. For instance, in
2012, SCA-TENA was the clear market leader in the adult diapers market
with a market share of over 25% followed by Kimberly Clark, whereas
Coloplast and C.R. Bard dominated the incontinence catheters & drainage
bags market. Furthermore, Medtronic displayed clear monopoly in the
sacral nerve stimulation for incontinence market.
