Global Pelvic Organ Prolapse Devices Market: Introduction

A pelvic organ prolapse is a medical condition where one of the pelvic organs descends lower than its normal anatomical position in the pelvic region. In a pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic organs, such as small intestine, bladder, uterus, bowel, or part of the vagina, which are usually supported by the pelvic floor, protrude or herniate into or at times even beyond the vaginal opening owing to weakened supporting structure of the pelvic floor. There are various types of pelvic prolapses depending on which organ has prolapsed. The prolapse of the bladder is known as cystocele. The prolapse of the small bowel is known as enterocele. When there is a prolapse of the rectum, it is called rectocele. Uterine prolapse is when the uterus descends down from its original position. The uterus, which aids in supporting the top of the vagina, when removed, at times causes the drop of the upper portion of the vagina, which is known as a vaginal vault prolapse. The devices used to restore the pelvic organs to their original position or that offer support to keep the pelvic organs in their natural position are called pelvic organ prolapse devices.

Key Drivers of Global Pelvic Organ Prolapse Devices Market

Increase in Geriatric Population

According to the WHO, the global population is increasing at the annual rate of 1.7%, while the population of those over 65 years is increasing at a rate of 2.5%. The fastest growing population segment in most countries is adults older than 80 years, which, according to the United Nations estimates, is likely to account for nearly 20% of the world’s population. Nutritional risk factors in the geriatric population and careful screening can intervene in the early stages, which can be termed valuable and effective. According to the World Population Ageing (2017), the global population aged 60 years or over stood at 962 million in 2017, more than twice as large as in 1980 when there were 382 million geriatric people. The geriatric population is expected to double by 2050 and projected to reach nearly 2.1 billion. In 2050, elderly persons are expected to account for 35% of the population of Europe, 28% of North America, 25% of Latin America & the Caribbean, 24% of Asia, 23% of Oceania, and 9% of Africa. The geriatric population in developing regions is increasing at a more rapid pace compared to the developed regions.
