Approximately 38.8% of prevalent cases of all types of UI will be in the US alone.
Features and benefits
- Gain insight to market potential, including a robust 10-year epidemiology forecast of urinary incontinence prevalent cases.
- Understand the key epidemiologic risk factors associated with urinary incontinence.
Between 2010 and 2020, Datamonitor expects to see an overall increase in the number of prevalent stress, urge, and mixed urinary incontinence cases in women aged 15–85+ in each of the seven major markets (the US, Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK), with the largest number of prevalent cases seen in the US.
Datamonitor estimates that the prevalence of female urinary incontinence (all types) is highest among women aged 45–54 years and also 75–84 years; stress urinary incontinence is most prevalent among women aged 35–44 years, while both mixed and urge urinary incontinence have the highest prevalence among women above the age of 75 years.
