European Urinary Catheters Market to Grow at a CAGR of 6.6% During the Period 2024-2032, Driven by Solutions Offering Better Care and Preventing Infections

European Urinary Catheters Market

According to a new report by EMR titled, ‘European Urinary Catheters Market Report and Forecast 2024-2032’, the European urinary catheters market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.6% during the period 2024-2032, led by increasing cases of urinary incontinence.

The European urinary catheters market is likely to be driven by increasing cases of urinary incontinence, especially among the elderly. Urinary incontinence has been on the rise in Europe, and increases with age from fourteen percent in people aged sixty-five to sixty-nine years to forty-five percent in individuals aged eighty-five years or above. The burden of urinary retention and incontinence (in terms of social, medical and economic resources) is significant in Europe; cases have also been aggravated by the use of existing catheters, such as Foley catheter. Indwelling catheter use has been reported to have increased significantly over the last two decades; clean intermittent catheter use has risen as well. The key driver behind the increase in use of indwelling and clean intermittent catheters has been an increase in incontinence care in older patients and the adaption of preferred clean intermittent catheter use in professional guidelines.


Leading companies are engaged in developing solutions that provide better care and prevent infections. For example, in 2020, Bactiguard launched a new urinary catheter ¬– BIP Foley TempSensor – for patients in intensive care and need of continuous temperature monitoring; the solution also prevented infections. The BIP Foley TempSensor came equipped with an additional channel that contained a temperature sensor connected to an external monitor. The product was available in several sizes, both for adults as well as children.

In 2020, it was reported that an EU-funded project had developed a new nanomaterial that could efficiently reduce infections from urinary catheters. The NANOELAST project sought to develop a new generation of catheters manufactured from a novel nanomaterial which killed bacteria associated with urinary tract infections. Such developments are expected to drive growth of European urinary catheters market. Amferia (Sweden) was the company developing the antibacterial catheter. The patented nanomaterial was originally developed by Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. It was a soft and flexible nanoporous polymer with rubber-like features, known as an elastomer, which could stretch without breaking.


In 2018, a specially coated urinary catheter with new bacteria resistant materials discovered by a team at the University of Nottingham, was approved for use by hospitals in the UK and Europe. The specially coated urinary catheter had been awarded a CE mark. Devices were about to be trialled in six hospitals across the UK. The trial would help determine if promising laboratory results translated into significantly decreased infection rates and lower costs for patients needing a catheter.

  • The European urinary catheters market is likely to be driven by rising cases of urinary incontinence, particularly among elderly patients.
  • Solutions offering better care and preventing infections are likely to stimulate market growth.
