Increasing Geriatric Population Coupled with the Increasing Prevalence of Organ Failure, Such as Heart or Liver Failure Drives the Growth of Global Nocturia Market
The major factor driving the growth of global nocturia market is increasing geriatric population coupled with the increasing prevalence of organ failure, such as heart or liver failure. For example; As per National Center for Biotechnology Information; There is relatively large number of comparative studies confirming strong correlation between aging and prevalence of nocturia. Prevalence of two or more voids per night in individuals in their twenties varies between 5-15 %, it progresses with age, and in the seventh decade of life ranges between 35-50 %.
In addition, increasing cases of hypertension are also anticipated to drive the growth of global nocturia market. For example; As per a new study conducted in Japan found that the need to urinate in the night, called nocturia, may be linked to hypertension and high salt intake. The study showed that getting up in the night to urinate was associated with a 40 percent greater chance of having high blood pressure, and the risk of hypertension rose significantly as the number of nocturia events per night increased. Furthermore, increasing awareness about the nocturia and improving healthcare infrastructure are also supplementing the growth of the market.
However, high operational cost may hamper the market growth. In spite of that, increasing advancements in the field of drug delivery systems can provide various opportunities for the further growth of the market.
North America is Expected to Dominate the Global Nocturia Market
The Global Nocturia Market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific Latin America and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to dominate the global nocturia market within the forecast period attributed to the highly developed healthcare infrastructure and increasing cases of nocturia in this region. For example; As per the National Center for Biotechnology Information; Nocturia affects 50 million people in the United States, with 10 million actually diagnosed with nocturia but only 1.5 million receiving specific therapy for it. One in three adults older than age 30 make at least two trips to the bathroom every night, and about 70% of these individuals are bothered by this.
Europe is projected to capture the second largest share of global nocturia market owing to the increasing geriatric population in this region. Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness a significant growth in global nocturia market owing to the increasing research and development for new and more effective treatments in this region.
