Urinary incontinence is a highly prevalent and largely underreported and under-diagnosed urological disorder, worldwide, that affects millions of people. It has a severe impact on physical, psychological, and emotional health. Women are affected twice as much as men, and the incidence increases with age. Several factors, such as weak pelvic floor muscles, urethral sphincters, obesity, pregnancy and childbirth, urinary tract infection, and neurological disorders, can cause urinary incontinence. It is estimated that around 200 million people are affected by some form of urinary incontinence or bladder problems. Among the different types of urinary incontinence, stress urinary incontinence is a highly common form, affecting millions of people worldwide. Various studies have suggested that nearly 45% of women above 30 years of age suffer from stress urinary incontinence worldwide.

In terms of product type, the transobturator tape (TOT) slings segment is estimated to account for a major share of the market. Decreased risk of bladder injury, bowel injury, and major blood vessels injury, ease of procedure, and efficacy equivalent to TVT slings have boosted the segment. Based on type of urinary incontinence, the stress urinary incontinence segment held a major share of the market in 2017. The segment is likely to expand at a considerable growth rate, as compared to other segments, during the forecast period. Vaginal slings have proven to be highly effective for the management of stress urinary incontinence. Moreover, development of mini slings, which require only a single incision, has fueled the adoption of vaginal slings in women.
In terms of region, the global vaginal slings market has been categorized into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.
