The global bowel management systems market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.04% to reach US$987.301 million by 2027, from US$748.152 million in 2020.

The increasing number of bowel diseases and the rising geriatric population are causing end-users to adopt bowel management systems.

The bowel management system is used for the management of faecal inconsistency in patients and helps them keep their skin free from contaminants and infections. The device is a soft catheter that is inserted into the rectum to contain and divert faecal waste. The surge in availability of technologically advanced devices for fecal management, the rise in the geriatric population, and the increase in fecal inconsistency-related disorders are the major factors that are driving the market for bowel management systems to grow Furthermore, increased awareness of the availability of these devices, combined with the introduction of new devices that address many unserved needs contributes to the bowel management system market's growth.

According to the International Foundation of Gastrointestinal Disorders (IFFGD), around 10-15% of the global population has irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).  Furthermore, favourable reimbursement scenarios in developed economies, as well as technological advancements in bowel management systems, are driving the market growth.

Some products that are offered are:

  • Bioness, Inc., one of the leading providers of advanced and clinically supported medical devices for the treatment of pain originating in the peripheral nerves, announced that its product, the "StimRouter® Neuromodulation System," has been approved by the FDA and has received the CE mark for approval in order to facilitate the treatment of fecal incontinence (also known as bowel incontinence). This product is available throughout Europe and allows physicians to treat patients with faecal or bowel incontinence by inserting a small implant into the tibial nerve near the ankle. In addition, this product is minimally invasive and easier to implant near the nerve Tibialis.
  • BD, which is considered among the leading medical equipment and solutions companies globally, offers their product called the “BARD DIGNISHEILD Stool Management System”. This product is able to effectively mitigate the damage that is caused to delicate tissues due to any leakage, pressure, or friction. It also aids the patient by protecting them from exposure, tissue damage, and odour. The system offered by the company consists of a catheter tube assembly, a 60cc syringe, a collection bag, and a jelly used to lubricate the syringe. In addition, other products such as an odour eliminator and a tube clam are also included.
  • B. Braun Melsungen AG, one of the leading medical product manufacturing and proving companies globally offers a range of products under its Fecal Incontinence & Bowel Management segment, which includes a Rectobag and a Rectal Catheter. The Rectobag is a closed system that is used to facilitate repeated intestinal salvage and diagnostics. It is made up of a conical connector, a bore transfer tube with a 7.5 mm diameter and a length of 10 cm with a closing clamp. It also has a liquid and odour-tight inlet as well as eyelets with a strong suspension. The Irrigation Catheter, also known as a rectal catheter, has a colour-coded cone fitting, a closed rounded tip, and two laterally positioned eyes.

A colostomy is estimated to hold a sizable share over the forecast period owing to the high prevalence of bowel health complications

Over the forecast period, colostomy bags are estimated to hold a significant share, which is attributed to the fact that the number of individuals suffering from diseases and complications associated with the bowel is increasing. In addition, diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome are getting more common among older individuals. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 1.3 million people have inflammatory bowel syndrome.

The problem of faecal inconsistency is more prevalent among adults.

The loss of cognitive function and the decrease in alertness and control over bloody functions becomes more prevalent as individual ages, and this is one of the reasons why geriatric individuals require assistance. The majority of adults have faecal incontinence. As a result, this factor is driving up demand for bowel management systems.

The North American region is estimated to hold a noteworthy market share growth over the forecast period owing to the rising number of serious diseases, well-positioned healthcare facilities, and well-developed healthcare infrastructure. In addition, the rising awareness among patients regarding the risk of various bowel problems is also expected to contribute to the market share of this region. Due to an increase in the number of serious diseases such as intestinal cancer and colorectal cancer among the population, the North American region is expected to hold significant market share growth over the forecast period. As a result, the risk of various bowel diseases affecting the geriatric population is increasing.

Recent development and expansion

  • ConfiPlus, a large doughnut-shaped device suitable for a colostomy, ileostomy, or urostomy, was invented by Anne Inch in Scotland in August 2021. If a leak happens, the material draws it into the foam. It gives the user time to change before anything gets into their clothes. This device has changed the lives of both patients and healthcare providers. 
  • USMIMA S.L. announced in December 2021 that the USFDA had granted the breakthrough device designation to its first product, the "MOWOOT II Intestinal Transit Management System". The device provides a novel, purely physical, non-drug, and non-invasive treatment for patients suffering from intestinal transit disorders such as chronic constipation. It enables more effective and efficient management of neurogenic bowel disorder (NBD), a severe form of chronic constipation.
  • The FDA approved Medtronic's InterStim Micro neurostimulator and InterStim SureScan MRI for the treatment of patients with bladder and bowl control conditions in August 2020. This invention will help them gain a competitive advantage over their competitors.

Covid 19 impact on Bowel Management Systems Market

The pandemic of COVID-19 had a negative impact on the global market for bowel management systems. As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, which resulted in strict border controls, stock market instability, and country-wide lockdowns, this pandemic hampered the manufacture and delivery of bowel management systems. Lockdowns in many countries during the early stages of the pandemic hampered the production of bowel management systems. All of these changes are had a negative impact on the bowel management system market, prompting industry and regulators to reconsider supply chains.
