The disposable incontinence products (DIPs) market is expected to witness a CAGR of 5.0% over the forecast period. The key factors propelling the growth of this market are rising prevalence of renal diseases and nephrological injuries, technological advancements in the material used for disposable products and catheters, and increasing awareness toward personalized care and hygiene.
The decreased renal function, primarily age-related, is one of the major indicators of hospitalizations, which may be accelerated due to several chronic diseases, such as hypertension, diabetes, and obesity, among other diseases, often leading to different stages of kidney diseases. These diseases are health burdens globally, with high economic costs to health systems. The excretions by kidney into the urine formation may vary drastically and cause variations in the urinary pH and composition leading to urinary incontinence (UI) problems. Adult diapers are significantly necessary in such cases, including mobility impairment, severe diarrhea, or dementia. The recently published research data by the World Health Organization (WHO) validates the huge demand for incontinence products. As per the WHO Integrated Care for Older People (ICOPE) guidelines and specific population-based studies released in 2017, the prevalence of UI was observed to be in the range of 9.9% to 36.1%, in different patient pools.
