In an ostomy surgery, the end-opening of the small or large intestine is brought to the surface of the skin through the surgical opening to discharge the biological waste into an external accessory such as a bag or pouch placed outside the body. This surgery is performed in patients suffering from inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease, blockage or misfunctioning of the intestine or urinary tract, infection, intestinal cancer, and in specific accidental damage. 

Market Dynamics

The major factors driving the growth of this market are the increasing prevalence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and colorectal cancer, growing awareness about ostomy/stoma care and availability of accessories used to treat ostomy in the market, and stable reimbursement policies by both government and private organizations. However, factors such as postoperative complications, negative psychological and emotional impacts of having ostomy or stoma, and risks associated with the ostomy surgery are expected to hinder the growth of the market.


The two-piece systems segment accounted for the largest market share of 55.6% in 2018. Two-piece systems are easy-to-use, durable, and convenient for changing the bag without removing the skin barrier from the stoma. The one-piece systems segment was the second-largest market in 2018, as it is more cost-effective compared to the two-piece ostomy systems.
