Vaginal Slings Market Outlook (2022-2032)

The global vaginal slings market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2.07 billion in 2022, and is forecast to surpass US$ 3.21 billion valuation by the end of 2032, expanding at a CAGR of 4.5% over the 2022 to 2032 projection period.

Vaginal slings are further classified into transobturator slings, mini slings/single incision slings, conventional vaginal slings, advanced vaginal slings, tension-free vaginal tape slings, and pubovaginal slings. Demand for transobturator slings is predicted to rise at a CAGR of 5% from 2022 to 2032. This can be ascribed to their effective advantages over other types, such as low chances of bladder injuries, bowel & major blood artery injuries, and effectiveness comparable to tension-free vaginal tape slings.

In addition to the advantages of these slings, rising rate of the elderly population who are more susceptible to urine incontinence symptoms and increasing prevalence of female urine incontinence are factors boosting the sales of transobturator slings.

  • According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information's 2021 study, 423 million people irrespective of their gender (20 and older) globally suffer from urine incontinence across the globe.

Additionally, the growing demand for minimally-invasive surgical procedures is also fuelling product sales growth.

Urinary incontinence, an undetected condition in which the bladder loses control and causes an involuntary flow of pee, is treated with vaginal slings. Some of the behaviours that can cause urine leakage are coughing, laughing, sneezing, lifting heavy objects, and exercising. Vaginal slings support and hold the urethra and bladder like a hammock to stop leakage.

A common type of surgery performed for such conditions is a vaginal sling surgery, where slings are made from natural or synthetic materials such as cadaver tissues, pig or cow tissues, human tissues, or mesh (tissue slings or synthetic slings).

Urinary incontinence symptoms can be seen due to several conditions, including urinary tract infections, weakened pelvic floor muscles and urethral sphincters, menopause, pregnancy, and childbirth.

Furthermore, during the forecast period, the worldwide demand for novel vaginal slings is anticipated to rise due to the rising prevalence of urine incontinence, and technological advancements in vaginal slings. One of the main reasons influencing vaginal sling sales during the projected period is the increased emphasis on minimising maternal death instances and growing healthcare spending power.

As incontinence concerns may emerge during pregnancy and after childbirth, WHO and UNFPA, for instance, have set five essential objectives to minimize unnecessary maternal mortality, which further could support the demand for urethral vaginal slings.
