BURLINGTON, Mass., Sept. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Decision Resources Group finds that major market players, driven by new technology, will continue to jostle for the greatest product share in the U.S. ostomy space in the coming year.

Key findings from Decision Resources Group's Global Ostomy Marketrack tool:

  • Coloplast and ConvaTec gain ground: Coloplast and ConvaTec continue to gain share at the expense of market leader Hollister, demonstrating 1 - 2 percent gains over the past several quarters.
  • New technology: Emphasis on new technology helps push ConvaTec and Coloplast upwards in this device space. Both manufacturers have seen patient gains from their respective products Esteem+ and Sensura Mio.
  • Larger market segment focus: ConvaTec recently showcased a propensity for targeting and winning the larger market segments, including the two-piece, drainable and flat segments.

Comments from Decision Resources Group Senior Analyst Kyle Verleyen:

  • "With the introduction of new technology and increased competition in larger ostomy segments, long-standing market leader Hollister's control on the market will be challenged. Looking closely at device unit volume, market size and competitor share in U.S. hospitals, it is evident that Coloplast and ConvaTec will continue to chase after Hollister's dominant position through 2015."
