The restraints on the market are poor efficacy and effectiveness of devices, threat of bacterial infection, cost of devices, and discomfort in using these devices. However the growing stringency of regulations is the most critical threat to the market. Moreover side effects associated with the use of urinary incontinence devices such as pain, organ perforation, and painful intercourse, urinary and faecal incontinence are constraints strong enough to warrant disuse of the treatment. Social constraints has caused undiagnosed and untreated patients from recognition of the condition.

Development of advanced materials such as silicon are expected to reduce the discomfort associated with the use of devices. Anti-microbial coated devices is the latest market development which yields a premium over the price.

Regional analysis – Global urinary continence market

The U.S. urinary Incontinence devices market is dependent on the legal and regulatory environment includes factors such as labelling standards, FDA classification rules etc. There is a situation of worsening regulatory and reimbursement environment. The situation has been compounded by the uncertainty of healthcare reforms. The uncertainty has forced many medical devices companies to first obtain marketing approval of new products in non-U.S. markets, particularly Europe. The U.S. food and drug administration (FDA) classifies medical devices into Class I, II, and III with regulatory control increasing from Class I to Class III, based on the need to provide reasonable assurance of its safety and effectiveness.

In general, most Class I devices are exempted from premarket notification 510(k) while the situation gets more and more serious for Class II devices and most Class III devices which require premarket approval (PMA). Urinary incontinences devices are classified as class II or class III devices. PMA is a very resource intensive and slow process due to the requirements of valid scientific evidence about the probable health benefits from the intended use of a device which must outweigh the probable risks. The PMA has slightly increased in the time required for clearance of device by the FDA and has involved greater use of third party reviewers which has added to the cost of clearance. Thus it is reasonable to conclude that the FDA has increased its strictness regarding clinical evidence and testing requirements which has lengthened the time and path to clearance.

The American market however has always represented the most advanced products with less marketing time and it is hoped that the situation will improve in the future. The advanced urinary incontinences devices are expected to find a large market in the U.S. Healthcare spending in North America has been increased in 2016. Canadian healthcare specifically was stressed by an advancing demographic move. The increase of insurance coverage because of health care reform (Affordable Care Act) in the United States additionally prompted an expansion in health care spending. In 2016, healthcare organizations found liberation from a special tax on medical devices (Medical Device Excise Tax). The United States Congress put off the tax for a long two years in 2015. This move is expected to result in market relief especially for device manufacturers burdened by the tax.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest growing market with countries such as China, India taking the lions share. China is a very attractive market due to its fast growing healthcare expenditure. Middle East and Africa market is expected to be a laggard due to poor healthcare expenditure both public and private. The poor socio economic conditions of Africa further complicates the situation.
