DUBLIN, May 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Stoma/Ostomy Care Market by Product (Bags (Surgery Type (Ileostomy, Colostomy, Urostomy), System (One, Two-Piece), Usability (Drainable, Closed), Shape (Flat, Convex)), Accessories (Powder, Deodorant)), End User and Region - Global Forecast to 2025" report has been added to's offering.

The global ostomy care market is projected to reach USD 3.5 billion by 2025 from USD 2.8 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period.

Globally, the population of individuals aged 60 years and above is expected to increase from 962 million in 2017 to 2.1 billion by 2050 (Source: UN Population Division). The rising geriatric population is considered as one of the major factors driving the growth of the ostomy care industry, as the incidence of bladder cancer and colorectal cancer is high among geriatric individuals.

Thus, the rising geriatric population, coupled with the growing number of awareness programs to educate patients regarding the use of ostomy products, are the major factors driving the growth of this market. However, discomfort and other issues associated with the use of ostomy bags and the growing adoption of alternative treatments are the key factors limiting the growth of this market.

The ostomy accessories segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period.

The ostomy accessories market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to the growing skin problems due to frequent removal and re-application of skin barrier of ostomy bags and rising awareness about the care of peristomal skin.

The two-piece bags segment expected to be the largest segment in 2019.

By ostomy bag type, the ostomy care market is segmented into one-piece, two-piece, and skin barrier. Two-piece bags are expected to hold the largest share of the market in terms of volume in 2019. The major share of the segment is attributed to the advantages of these bags over one-piece bags and a rising number of ileostomy procedures.

Asia-Pacific expected to register the highest growth rate in the ostomy care market.

The ostomy care industry is segmented into five major regions, namely, North America, Europe, the Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa. Awareness initiatives by public and private organizations, a large patient population base for target diseases, and the rising geriatric population are the key factors driving the market growth. In addition, several market players are focusing on strengthening their distribution networks in APAC markets to capitalize on the growth opportunities in this region, are expected to boost the growth of this region.
