Publish Date: April 2021

According to a research report published by Azoth Analytics in March 2021, the Global Adult Incontinence Market was valued at USD 3590.01 Million in the year 2020. The market is expected to be driven by a growing ageing population and better hygiene standards and increasing awareness about adult incontinence products in sectors of developed countries as well as developing countries.

Adult incontinence isn’t a condition — it’s a symptom of another problem. There are five types of incontinence, and each manifests a little bit differently. Incontinence happens when the muscles that hold in urine or that support bladder weaken enough to let urine leak out. Nerve damage can also prevent brain from getting the message that it’s time to go. Women are more likely to develop stress incontinence than men, in part because pregnancy and childbirth can weaken the muscles that support the bladder.

The pandemic has pushed the demand for adult incontinence products. In light of the pandemic, the R&D strategy has been refocused, to further enhance production efficiency. The pandemic has pushed government to impose the Movement Control Order (MCO) on 18 March 2020 and the MCO has severely impacted business activities and consumer confidence. COVID-19 is an incomparable global public health emergency and hence in the study, the long-term effects are assessed that could impact the industry growth during the forecast period. Technological innovation in adult incontinence products has remained the key factor to success. With the advancement of technology, the adult incontinence products have become better performing, better absorbing capability and thinner.
