Report Description


Global Ostomy Care Market: Overview

Ostomy surgery, also known as bowel diversion, is a procedure that re-routes the movement of the intestinal content out of the body via a small opening made on the abdominal wall. The opening is known as ostomy or stoma. It can be temporary or permanent, depending on severity of the disease. If the opening connects the small intestine to the abdominal wall, it is known as ileostomy or jejunostomy. The ostomy on the large intestine is known as colostomy. The ostomy care bag is attached to the abdominal wall, which collects the stool in an odor-free and secure way. The bag is disposable and it can be removed when required. According to demographic data from the Coloplast Ostomy Life Study–2016, there exist 47% of male and 53% of female patients with regular peristomal body profile.

Global Ostomy Care Market: Drivers and Restraints

Growing prevalence of inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, intestinal cancer, fecal incontinence, and diverticular disease; increasing health care expenditure; and rising development of new products in ostomy care are factors expected to boost the global ostomy care market during the forecast period. However, lack of reimbursement for ostomy care bags and weak economies of developing regions are factors expected to negatively affect the global ostomy care market during the forecast period.

North America is expected to be the second-largest market for ostomy care from 2017 to 2025, due to growing geriatric population, increasing investments in R&D activities, and growing pool of patients with intestinal disorders in the region.
