A colostomy is a surgical procedure in which one end of the large intestine (colon) is diverted into a visible opening, known as stoma, on the patient’s abdomen to eliminate the body wastes.

It is also referred to as bowel diversion therapy which is performed to reduce, stop or heal the infection, blockage, or in rare cases, severe trauma of the colon when the patient is suffering from problems with the lower bowel. After the surgery, a small pouch or a colostomy bag is placed over the stoma to collect the waste products. These bags are usually made of skin friendly materials, such as rubber or plastic, and facilitate easy disposal of the waste. According to the latest report by the analyst, titled “Colostomy Bags Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026”, the global colostomy bags market reached a value of around US$ 2 Billion in 2020.

The rising incidences of chronic diseases such as cancer, Crohn’s disease and inflammatory bowel syndrome have resulted in increasing the adoption of colostomy procedures, thereby fostering the global colostomy bags market. Additionally, the geriatric population with urinary, colorectal and bladder tract problems prefers colostomy bags to eliminate the leakage. This is anticipated to increase the usage of colostomy bags, in turn, driving the market growth. Furthermore, various governments are taking initiatives to create awareness regarding colostomy procedures done for the treatment of various diseases, such as colorectal cancer. This will aid in influencing the market growth of colostomy bags worldwide. Moreover, technical advancements have led to the production of colostomy bags which are more durable, skin-friendly, unbreakable and waterproof. Looking forward, the analyst expects the global colostomy bags market to exhibit moderate growth during the forecast period (2021-2026).
