The urinary flow meters market size was valued at USD 18.5 million in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 19.9 million in 2023 to USD 34.9 million by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.3% during 2023-2030. North America dominated the global market with a share of 40% in 2022.

Uroflowmeters helps in the diagnosis of diseases such as urine leakage, urine retention, and benign prostate hyperplasia. These devices are commonly used in specialty clinics and hospitals for the evaluation of the functionality of the urinary system and diagnosis of various urological conditions. The various benefits associated with these products, which include their easy-to-use features, improved handling, and accurate analysis of urine flow, which have increased the adoption of these products.

The rising prevalence of urinary tract disorders will positively influence the urinary flow meters market growth. Furthermore, the growing demand for high-quality devices and the rising number of product launches by the market players are expected to boost market growth over 2023-2030.


The Pandemic Negatively Impacted Market Players’ Revenue Due to Lower Patient Volume in Clinics

The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic led to a decline in the demand for products used by urologists due to lower patient volumes. The reallocation of healthcare resources, supply chain disruptions, decreased patient visits to clinics, and other major parameters impacted the sales of products. Additionally, market key players recorded a significant decline in their revenues due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

The negative growth of the market was due to the decline in the number of patients visiting hospitals and specialty clinics for the diagnosis of urinary tract disorders.

  • For instance, according to the study published by Elsevier Inc. in July 2021, there was a 50.0% drop in visit volume to urology services from March 2020 to April 2020 in the U.S.

Additionally, several hospital beds, rooms, and even urologists shifted toward the treatment of COVID-19, leading to a decline in the demand for uroflometers.

  • For instance, according to the survey published by NCBI in August 2020, the bed occupancy in the urological departments was reduced by 48.6% to hospitalize COVID-19 patients.

The resumption of a significant number of surgical procedures and patient visits in 2020 and 2021 contributed to the market falling back to the pre-pandemic year in 2022.


Increased Transition from Non-PC Based Products to PC Based Products 

The urinary flow meter market is continuously evolving with the advent of advanced products. These innovations have shifted from Non-PC Based flowmeters to PC Based products. PC Based devices offer several advantages, which include enhanced accuracy and precision in measuring urine flow rates. They can also seamlessly integrate with electronic medical records (EMRs) and other clinical systems, facilitating efficient patient data tracking and enabling healthcare professionals to make well-informed decisions.

Furthermore, the market players are focusing on developing innovative PC Based devices to enhance their product offerings and attract a wider customer base by providing improved diagnosis facilities to urologists for the evaluation of several disorders, including urinary tract diseases. Additionally, as the medical device industry continues to embrace digital technologies, it is expected that the market for PC Based devices will continue to grow robustly in the coming years.

Growing Prevalence of Urological Disorders to Drive the Product Demand

The market is anticipated to experience significant growth in the coming years due to the increasing prevalence of urological diseases. There has been an increase in the adoption of these products due to the growing prevalence of urological diseases, such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), urinary incontinence, enlarged prostates, prostate cancer, and bladder cancer.

  • For instance, according to the study published by the journal Nursing Open in April 2023, in China, the prevalence of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) among adult women was 22.2%. Furthermore, 16.2% and 6.0% had mild SUI and moderate-to-severe SUI among adult Chinese women.

Similar trends of higher prevalence of urinary incontinence among women have been observed globally, leading to increased demand for these products.

The rising prevalence of urological diseases has increased the adoption of these devices for diagnosis in hospitals & specialty clinics. Furthermore, many market players are focusing on the development and introduction of advanced devices to diagnose patients with urological diseases.

Growing Burden of Geriatric Population to Drive Market Growth

The prevalence of urological disorders is rising globally, primarily due to the growing burden of the aging population. The risk of bladder problems such as urine leakage, retention, and benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) is high in geriatric population.  According to an article published in the Eurostat in 2022, more than one-fifth (20.8%) of the European Union population was comprised of ages 65 and over in 2021. So, the rising geriatric population is expected to contribute to the robust demand for these products in the future. BPH is a common urological disorder among aging men, which further contributes to the demand for these products. The rising male geriatric population and the increasing incidence of BPH in this group are anticipated to fuel the demand for these devices.

These products are used in the diagnosis of various urinary tract disorders, including BPH, bladder neck obstruction, bladder neuromuscular dysfunction cystometry, and neurogenic bladder, by the measurement of urine flow rates. The increasing trend of home healthcare is expected to boost the adoption of these devices among patients who prefer to receive care at home. The growing geriatric population, increasing prevalence of urology diseases, and technological advancements are expected to drive the growth of the market in the coming years.


Inadequate Awareness and High Costs of Urinary Flow Meters to Hamper Market Growth

In developing countries, there has been an increase in the number of uroflowmetry testing procedures and the prevalence of urology diseases. However, several factors, such as lack of awareness, comparatively lower healthcare expenditure in emerging countries, and high costs of these products, are expected to impede the market growth.

In emerging countries, there is a lack of awareness regarding these devices, which can be due to the limited access to healthcare facilities and the lesser importance of monitoring urinary health. As a result, the adoption rate of these products remains low, hindering the market growth.

Additionally, the high costs of these products pose a significant barrier to their adoption in hospitals and specialty clinics. The prices of these devices can vary depending on their type and features, with certain advanced products costing several thousand dollars. Hence, factors such as high costs and insufficient awareness are responsible for the lower adoption rates of these products.


By Type Analysis

Rising Prevalence of Urologic Diseases to Drive PC Based Urinary Flow Meters Segment Growth

Based on the type, the market is bifurcated into PC Based urinary flow meters and Non-PC Based urinary flow meters.

PC Based urinary flow meters segment captured the highest global urinary flow meters market share in 2022 and is estimated to record the fastest CAGR over 2023-2030. The large share of the segment is attributed to the growing prevalence of urologic diseases coupled with the high demand for these products, especially amongst developed countries. The increasing adoption of these products, coupled with the market players bringing in new products, such as wireless connection type products to the market, is driving the segmental growth.

The Non-PC Based urinary flow meters segment is projected to expand at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period. This segmental growth is due to the growing introduction and development of products by companies for rapid and easy analysis of patients suffering from urinary problems. Furthermore, the market players are focusing on various strategies to expand their product offerings in the segment, thereby increasing the segmental growth during the forecast period.
