Aging Population and Rising Incidence of Diseases Characterized By OAB
In 2017, there were approximately 950 million people who were 60 years old or above, comprising 13% of the global population, and is growing by about 3% every year. Incontinence generally increases with aging. As per a global population-based survey, the estimated prevalence of overactive bladder (OAB) in Europe and Canada was found to be 12.8% in women and 10.8% in men. OAB has a major negative impact on quality of life and health of the aged population. With the increasing burden of OAB, along with other urinary diseases, the growth of the overactive bladder treatment market is likely to be high. Other factors, such as the development of innovative intravesical therapies and aggressive marketing by pharmaceuticals companies, are also expected to expand the market.
Undesired Systemic Effects of the Current OAB Treatments
Anticholinergic have been linked to the burden to dementia or Alzheimer’s disease in a few recent studies. In a recent publication by SL Gray, 3434 participants were studied and a 10-year cumulative dose response relationship was found to exist between the usage of anticholinergic drugs and the risk of developing dementia. Anticholinergic has also been linked with increased mortality and cardiovascular diseases. These factors may deter healthcare providers from using these treatment options. Also the increasing awareness about these side effects among users will lead to the slowdown of the growth of this market.
