Ileostomy Market: Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment; 2018 - 2028

Market Overview

Ileostomy is a procedure done mainly to cure large intestine problems that are not easy to cure with general medication. The most common reason for an ileostomy procedure is inflammatory bowel disease, which occurs due to irregular functioning of large intestine in throwing of out the waste product. Major two inflammatory bowel disease observed are Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Crohn’s disease affects the ileum, it can also affect the large intestine and other sections of the digestive tract. Ulcerative colitis is an inflammation caused in the inner lining of the intestine which leads to painful ulcers formed in the colon and rectum, due to which people often find blood and mucus in their stool. Ileostomy is done for other problems as well, which lines up with colon cancer, birth defects and Hirschprung’s disease. It is a procedure where an opening is created in the abdominal wall to direct the waste, called stoma. It is performed either on a temporary way or a permanent procedure. For a conventional approach, external bag is used for waste collection and the patient has no control over the faecal waste flows into the external plastic pouch. Another type is the knock ileostomy, where part of ilium is used to form a pouch for waste collection with an external stoma working as a valve. This happens to be the most favoured technique of ileostomy recently due to its elimination of external bag in the procedure, which allows the patient to have a control over the removal of waste.

Market players with commercially available products to process the procedure have certain different technologies installed in their routine but the aim of all the products is to provide faster, efficient and quality results.
