Skin Barrier Market by Shape (Flat and Convex) and Surgery Type (Colostomy, Ileostomy, and Urostomy): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2019–2026

The global skin barriers market was valued at $868.1 million in 2018, and is expected to reach $1,191.5 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 4.1% from 2019 to 2026. A skin barrier is used to manage the containment of stool, which is of liquid or semiliquid consistency. It is used in patients dealing with fecal incontinence and help them to keep the skin free from contaminants and moisture that may cause skin breakdown. It is a thin film attached to the ostomy pouches to prevent leakage of the body fluids. It helps in reduction of infection transmission by keeping infectious body waste contained in a closed system. Furthermore, it supports to protect the perianal and sacral pressure areas. Skin barriers or devices play a key role in minimizing the likelihood of involuntary bowel leakage and constipation.

The global skin barriers market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period majorly due to availability of technological advanced devices for bowel management. Furthermore, rise in geriatric population and surge in fecal inconsistency-related disorders significantly contribute toward the market growth. However, dearth of trained professionals and patient discomfort in using these devices hinder the growth of market. In addition, high cost of skin barriers and increase in risk of allergies due to skin barrier materials restrain the market growth. On the contrary, the introduction of various new materials that offer more prevention of leakage and development of the healthcare R&D facilities are expected to offer lucrative opportunities for expansion of the global skin barriers market.
