This market research report presents a detailed segmentation of the global colostomy bags market by product (colostomy drainage bags and colostomy care accessories), by end-user (retail pharmacies, hospitals, outpatient departments, and healthcare centers), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA). The leading vendors in the market include B. Braun, Coloplast, ConvaTec, Hollister, Marlen, Oakmed, TG Eakin, and Welland Medical.

Overview of the global colostomy bags market

 Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global colostomy bags market to grow at a CAGR of close to 6% by 2020. One of the primary drivers for this market is the increasing need for stoma care. The spillage of stool onto the stoma, sweating, dislocation of the colostomy bag, and unhygienic conditions can cause localized infections around the stoma resulting in a hard, reddened, and painful area. To counter the spread of stoma infections, several medical facilities are using colostomy care accessories. For instance, a colostomy belt can be worn with two-piece and convex ostomy bags to help prevent body waste leakage. Similarly, colostomy powders and cleaning wipes are used to maintain skin care and keep the area around the stoma dry.

As per this industry research report, the market is witnessing increased usage of a closed one-piece system for the management of diseases such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, and irritable bowel syndrome. In closed one-piece ostomy bags, the bag and the flange together form an inseparable unit and are fixed around the stoma. They are easy to dispose of as the whole unit can be removed. This minimizes the duration and effort required for routine ostomy care. For instance, ConvaTec’s ActiveLife One-piece closed-end pouch is lightweight, flexible, and easy to manage with the presence of a pre-cut stoma opening and a charcoal filter.
