The global urological disorders market is growing rapidly with the increasing Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) and Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) diseased populations. In 2010, the global urological disorders market was estimated to be worth $8.1 billion, representing a CAGR of 7.9% between 2002 and 2010. The BPH market, with sales worth $4.1 billion in 2010, accounted for 50% of the total urological disorders market. The UI market was estimated to be $2.4 billion, the second largest urological disorders market, and to have grown at a CAGR of 6.2% between 2002 and 2010. By 2017, the global urological disorders market is forecast to be worth $10.3 billion, representing a CAGR of 3.4% between 2010 and 2017. BPH is expected to remain the largest market in the urological disorders segment with sales of $5.7 billion in 2017. The Research and Development (R&D) pipeline for urological disorders currently has 72 molecules in different stages of clinical development. The BPH R&D pipeline accounted for approximately 39% of the total urological disorders pipeline.

The global urological disorders market is very competitive, with the top five companies accounting for 88% of the total market in 2010. Johnson & Johnson leads the market with a share of 29%. Its two main drugs are Levaquin and Elmiron, which have strong presence in the UTI and Urinary Incontinence (UI) markets respectively.

The urological disorders market has witnessed strong deal activity between 2004 and 2011. The 120 deals conducted comprised M&A deals (44), licensing deals (67) and co-development deals (nine). This growth has driven M&A activities, primarily for companies looking to expand their product portfolio for indications such as BPH, UI, UTI and Interstitial Cystitis (IC).

The urological disorders market remains attractive and is set to see moderate growth between 2010 and 2017, despite many of its blockbuster drugs going off-patent during the period.
