Market Size & Trends

The global botulinum toxin in urology market size was estimated at USD 907.08 million in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.0% from 2023 to 2030. Botulinum toxin is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When injected into muscle, it acts as a specific blocker of acetylcholine produced from nerves, which prevents neural transmission from the nerves. Due to factors such as the increasing geriatric population, increase in the number of botulinum toxin procedures, and growing prevalence of neurogenic urologic disorders such as refractory urinary incontinence, urgency, and frequency, the demand for botulinum toxin is growing.

U.S. Botulinum Toxin In Urology Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The rise in the use of botulinum toxin injection in several lower urinary tract conditions, including the treatment of overactive bladders, bladder pain syndrome, pediatric urinary incontinence, and others, is projected to boost the market growth during the forecast period. The availability of various botulinum toxin products such as disport, botox, and others is expected to accelerate the market growth. For instance, in June 2022, according to MDPI, the product botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A) in various preparations was used to treat urinary tract conditions.

Globally, the increasing geriatric population associated with urinary tract conditions, especially urinary incontinence, is projected to impact the market's growth. The senior population, particularly those aged 65 and above, is more prone to urinary incontinence problems, requiring botulinum toxin injections to treat these conditions. For instance, in November 2022, the article" Senior Population Statistics: A Portrait of Aging Americans," reported that around 54.1 million (16.3%) individuals in the U.S. are aged 65 or above. Thus, the growing geriatric population is attributed to the increasing demand for botulinum toxin injections. In addition, rising investment in the R&D program by key market players to explore the therapeutic use of botulinum toxin in urinary tract conditions is building opportunities for expanding its market over the forecast period.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a major impact on healthcare systems, including the market for botulinum toxin. Market players have experienced huge losses due to the cancellation or postponement of urinary treatments. For instance, in July 2022, according to NCBI, it is reported that the Italian Society of Urodynamics found that approximately 78.4% of treatments regarding urology investigations, procedures, and consultations were canceled during a pandemic. After the pandemic, the growing number of individuals receiving treatment for urinary tract conditions increased the demand for botulinum toxin injection.

Application Insights

Based on application, the market is bifurcated intooveractive bladder and neurogenic detrusor overactivity segments. In 2022, the overactive bladder segment held the largest revenue share at 67.14%. Factors such as incomplete bladder emptying, overweight, obesity, and urinary tract infections, contribute to overactive bladder. For instance, according to the Cleveland Clinic, in the U.S., about 33 million adults are affected by overactive bladder, including 40% of women and 30% of men. Thus, the growing incidence of overactive bladder boosts the market growth.

Individuals with Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, and Spina bifida are more vulnerable to neurogenic detrusor overactivity. For instance, according to the Cleveland Clinic, neurogenic detrusor overactivity affects more than 90% of people and is common with spinal cord injuries. Approximately 50% to 80% of people with multiple sclerosis and 95% with spina bifida have neurogenic detrusor overactivity. Thus, the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases has led to a rise in neurogenic detrusor overactivity problems, further resulting in market growth over the forecast period.

End-use Insights

Based on end-use, the market is bifurcated into Hospitals and urology clinics segments. The Hospitals segment held the largest revenue share of 73.74% in 2022 and is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Increasing awareness for applications of botulinum toxin in urinary conditions, rising elderly population, and a growing number of Hospitals in developed and emerging nations are attributed to the segment growth. For instance, in August 2023, according to NVBI, it is stated that 11% of Hospitalized elderly patients have urinary incontinence at admission and 23% at discharge. Hospitals play a vital role in specialized medical care for diagnosing and treating urinary tract conditions, thus fueling market growth.

The urology clinics offer diagnostic testing and therapies for conditions affecting the genitourinary system and urinary bladder. Patients preferring more specialized Hospitals to gain more precise and accurate treatment boost the market growth.

Regional Insights

North America held the largest revenue share of 37.41% in 2022 due to several factors, including a growing elderly population, increasing prevalence of urinary incontinence, strong presence of industry players in the region, well-developed healthcare infrastructure, and rising awareness among the public. For instance, in August 2023, according to an article titled “Urinary Incontinence,” it was reported that around 13 million Americans suffer from urinary incontinence, and the prevalence is 50% or above among residents of nursing facilities. Thus, the rising prevalence of urinary incontinence is driving the market growth in the region.

Botulinum Toxin In Urology Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

The Asia Pacific region is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR of 7.3% over the forecast period due to several contributing factors. An aging population, high consumption of beverages such as tea and coffee, and diabetes are leading to increased urinary incontinence. For instance, in November 2022, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), in the Southeast Asia region, more than 96 million individuals are predicted to have diabetes, with another 96 million pre-diabetic individuals causing at least 600,000 casualties annually. These factors create a higher demand for effective treatment options such as botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A) in the Asia Pacific region.
