A male external catheter, also called a condom catheter, helps drain urine without the need of catheter insertion in the urethra. It consists of a flexible sheath placed over the penis and connected by a long drainage tube that is attached to a urinary drainage bag. The sheath is usually made from latex rubber, vinyl, or silicone. It is held in place either using a double-sided adhesive strap or a latex or foam strap that is wrapped around the penis. Male external catheters are convenient and simple to use for short periods of time. These catheters need to be changed every 24-48 hours.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the Global Male External Catheters market for the period 2015-2019. In terms of product type, the market is segmented into two: Disposable and Reusable Male External Catheters.

According to the report, the increase in the aging population is a major contributor to the growth of the market. It is estimated that about 2 billion people will be aged 60 and above by 2050. The prevalence of urinary incontinence increases with age, which in turn increases the demand for catheters.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges faced by the market is the presence of alternative treatment options for urinary incontinence.
