Catheter is a hollow pipe that is inserted into body to deliver medicine, gas, fluid to patients or to drain bodily fluid such as urine. Introduction of advanced catheters will ease the surgical procedures, reduce treatment time leading to surge in market share. Different types of catheters such as electrophysiology diagnostics and ablation, PTCA balloon catheters, & indwelling catheters are available in the market. Introduction of robotic assisted interventions have provided significant advantages to vascular patients, leading to boost the industry growth. Technological advancements in catheters have enabled us to visualize and operate lesions in almost any vessel, and therefore it is driving us towards targeted interventional applications for precise lesions in specific vessels.

The history of catheters can be tracked back to 1700s when 1st catheter made of rubber was introduced. Earlier catheters were manufactured in copper, lead, brass, gold and silver. Benjamin Franklin was the inventor of a flexible silver catheter. In the 1800s, Charles Goodyear invented the idea of vulcanization of rubber, that was later on patented in 1844 by Thomas Hancock. Soon in 20th century, latex rubber became the most popular material for producing catheter. As technology continued to advance, other materials including poly-vinyl-chloride (PVC) and silicone were being use. Advancements in catheter technology has reached new heights. Now-a-days intermittent catheters exist in many sizes, brands, materials and types such as pre-lubricated, antimicrobial coated catheters, hydrophilic catheters, pediatric sizes etc.

Increasing geriatric population base that is at higher risk of acquiring cardiovascular, neurovascular and urology disorders will drive the market demand. The demand for minimally invasive therapies has been increased to avoid the post-surgical complications, minimize length of hospital stays and recovery time. Additionally, increasing demand for minimally invasive therapies is generating immense opportunity for the market growth globally. The increasing prevalence of cardiovascular, neurovascular and urology disorder will serve to be a high impact rendering factor for industry demand over the forecast timeframe.

However, the high cost associated with the advanced cardiovascular & urological catheters may hinder the market demand during the forecast timeframe. Also, the lack of accessibility for advanced catheterization procedures in low-middle income countries will limit the industry size.

Increasing number of cardiovascular surgeries will boost the market revenue growth

Based on product, the market is segmented into vascular, urology, intravenous and specialty catheters. Vascular segment is further sectored into, cardiovascular & neurovascular catheters. Among vascular catheters, cardiovascular segment accounted for more than 85% revenue share of market in 2018. Demand of cardiovascular catheters for therapeutic & diagnostic purposes has increased worldwide. The increasing number of angiography and atrial fibrillation cases are propelling demand for catheter globally. For instance, the Arctic Front Cardiac CryoAblation Catheter & CryoConsole are used to treat drug refractory frequent symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. Recovery time for patients with cardiac catheterization is quick and complications are at low risk. The aforementioned factors are expected to lead growth of market over coming years.

Double lumen to attain new heights in catheter industry Outlook

Based on lumen, the catheter market is segmented into single-lumen, double-lumen, triple-lumen and others. The double-lumen segment contributed over USD 16,000 million in the global market outlook for the year 2018. In cases where multiple central venous approaches are essential, double-lumen catheters are used, leading to industry trends. Moreover, these catheters have the capacity to reduce the frequency of the catheterization by inserting multiple drugs with one catheter. Hence, owing to vast application and high efficiency double-lumen contributes to the highest market share.

Availability of advanced devices at hospital settings proves beneficial for catheterization surgeries

Based on end-use, market is segmented into hospitals & clinics, specialty centers, ambulatory surgical centers and other. The hospital & clinics segment accounted for around 32% revenue share in 2018 and will continue to show lucrative development in the market over forecast period. The industry growth is majorly attributed to rising patient pool suffering from cardiovascular, urinary & neurological diseases. Moreover, availability of technologically advanced catheters coupled with favourable reimbursement policies will further augment industry growth in hospitals during the analysis period. Additionally, hospitals facilitated with ambulatory catheterization labs delivering top class outpatient service will fuel the catheters market trends.
