Posted by Rajkumar on May 17th, 2019

Suprapubic catheters are used in a wide range of surgical applications including urinary tract infections (UTIs), bladder stones, bladder cancer, and bypass track by urine. Furthermore, suprapubic catheterization is commonly used for postoperative bladder drainage after gynecologic procedures. Suprapubic catheters are also used for bladder drainage to manage short-term voiding dysfunction after pelvic surgery.

The global suprapubic catheter market was valued at US$ 11,265.4 million in 2017 and is expected to witness a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period (2018 – 2026).

Increasing product launches is expected to drive growth of the suprapubic catheter market

New product launches to normalize the urine flow in medical conditions and surgeries such as kidney stones and gynecologic procedures are expected to drive the suprapubic catheter market growth. For instance, in September 2016, CompactCath launched its intermittent urinary catheter to address the issues that patients have while self-catheterizing on daily routines. Furthermore, in 2014, CompactCath received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearance for the intermittent urinary catheter.

Moreover, in March 2018, Mayo Clinic completed clinical study for silver-impregnated suprapubic catheters (SPC) in urogynecology. The study was conducted to show a statistical significant decrease in urinary tract infection (UTI) rate among the individuals with a silver-alloy suprapubic catheter compared to the standard silver-alloy catheter.

Market Dynamics

Increasing prevalence of kidney disorders such as kidney stone (Urolithiasis) is expected to drive the suprapubic catheter market growth. When the ureter gets blocked due to the presence of kidney stone, suprapubic catheters are used to create passage for urine flow.  For instance, in November 2018, National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) published the study data for the prevalence of kidney stone in the U.S. According to NHANES, for 2013–2014 NHANES cycle, the prevalence of kidney stone in the U.S. was 10.1%. Moreover, NHANES also stated that the prevalence of kidney stones (KSs) was the highest in males older than 60 years (17.8%), followed by males 40–59 years old (12.6%). The study also showed that the prevalence of kidney stone in males was stable while it was increasing in females.

According to Residential Communications Network (RCN) (2012) and the European Association of Urology Nurses (2012), the suprapubic catheters are more advantageous than urethral catheterization, as they do not have the risk of urethral trauma, necrosis or catheter-induced urethritis and urethral strictures as well as they provide comfort to the patients who are on wheelchair as the catheter is not situated between their legs. Moreover, micturition is still possible if urethra is not surgically closed or obstructed.
