Industry players are focusing on developing efficient, precise, and cost-effective catheters that would help to fuel the catheters market share during the estimated time period. Such catheters are assisting to cut-off the time required for hemostasis and prevent blood loss after the interventional surgery. The rise in the number of patients suffering from chronic diseases has promoted the use of catheters and is anticipated to drive the market growth in the near future.

Furthermore, the growing elderly population, rising prevalence of cardiovascular illnesses, and related interventional procedures have increased demand for technologically advanced products. Increasing use of these innovative products is offering a faster diagnostic procedure and early discharge to the patient. These products are improving patient comfort and decrease significant surgical complications such as bleeding and vascular thrombosis.

Catheter is a medical equipment that is inserted into the body for therapeutic purpose or management of diseases or during a surgical procedure to facilitate outflow of bodily fluids or intake of medications.

However, the high cost of advanced catheters may hamper industry growth. Increasing number of patients suffering from cardiovascular and chronic diseases such as urinary bladder, renal failure, coronary heart disease, etc. needs novel catheters for catheterization procedures. However, due to costly catheterization procedures of these diseases the adoption rate of catheters may decrease across low-income nations.

The high costs of these devices and essential accessories may act as a restrain for the market growth. Because of the high costs associated with catheterization treatments, market expansion in developing economies with comparatively low-income levels may be limited. Thus, middle and low-income countries may find it difficult to adopt such high-priced products. Hence, the high cost of these advanced products might hamper the catheters market growth during the estimation timeframe.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic had a partial negative impact on catheters market during the first quarter of 2020. During the COVID-19 pandemic, there was a decline in the frequency of emergency and general visits connected to cardiovascular disorders, that influenced product acceptance to some extent. There was a significant setback in surgeries of cardiac, neurological, and urology diseases. As per the report published in March 2020, there was a spurn in endovascular therapy by 32% in over 8 countries across the globe.

However, with the rising number of patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases, the number of procedures will continue to increase again. Various international government authorities have revised certain guidelines to ensure maximum safety of the patients as well as healthcare professionals in treatment of chronic diseases and care management. Despite lower patient admissions in 2020, the decreasing number of COVID-19 cases and a large proportion of the population suffering from chronic illnesses are expected to boost the catheters market sales in the forthcoming years.

Increasing geriatric population base is set to stimulate market size significantly

Rising geriatric population is one of the major concerns in developing countries globally. Additionally growing prevalence of chronic diseases in geriatric patients such as aortic disease, venous thromboembolism, peripheral arterial disease, etc. is set to propel the catheters market growth in an estimated timeframe. According to an article published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2020, over 19.1% of the global geriatric population aged 55 to 65 years was suffering from peripheral arterial disease, out of which around 27% were men and over 21% were women. Asia Pacific has the highest number of geriatric population, and the numbers are surging at an unprecedented rate.

For instance, according to a news article, Japan and Italy are the countries with highest geriatric population accounting for around 28% and 23% of the total population in respective countries. Moreover, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), the percentage of individuals aged 60 years and above in the population is growing. In 2019, the number of people aged 60 years and older was 1 billion, it is expected to rise to 1.4 billion by 2050. Hence, the increasing aging population at an unprecedented pace will accelerate the catheters market revenue in the coming years.

Increasing demand for vascular catheters is projected to promote the market statistics

Based on product, the market is segmented as vascular catheters, urology catheters, intravenous catheters, specialty catheters, and others. The vascular catheters segment held a majority of the market share in 2021 and is expected to witness 9.6% CAGR through 2028 owing to rising acceptance of advanced vascular catheters by various medical professionals and hospitals to perform complex interventional surgeries. These vascular catheters help in reducing bleeding complications and increasing patient safety during surgical procedures.

The growing demand for these innovative devices is primarily owing to benefits such as the low procedural cost, fewer post-operative complications, and minimum nursing care time that is anticipated to augment the segmental growth in the near future. As per the research article published by the BMC Nephrology, in 2019, the use of vascular catheters was around 54% globally. Vascular catheters are also one of the prominent devices in the treatment of various cardiovascular disorders.

According to the European Society of Cardiology, cardiovascular conditions are one of the leading causes of mortalities in Europe accounting for around 45% of the overall deaths. Therefore, the demand for efficient, quick, and effective vascular catheters for vascular catheterization is projected to propel significantly.

Technological advancements and innovations in double-lumen catheters is expected to accelerate the industry expansion

Based on lumen, the catheters market is segmented as single-lumen, double-lumen, triple-lumen, and others. The double-lumen segment is anticipated to reach at around USD 16,278 million by 2028. Double-lumen catheters are widely used for various medical applications in intravenous surgeries. These double lumen catheters are mostly made of polyethylene or polyurethane that are easy to use and can be implanted directly during surgeries providing independent access to the venous circulation.

Double lumen catheters help to inject two incompatible fluids or drugs at the same time. It offers several benefits including providing the optimal balance of flexibility and durability. According to a survey report published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), majority of the double lumen catheters were used for hemodialysis. The double-lumen catheters are part of a comprehensive series of critical care catheters used to drain bodily fluids from body cavities or to dilate body channels.

Several market players are emphasizing to manufacture technologically advanced double-lumen catheters to gain a competitive advantage over their peers. These devices are highly preferred for continuous catheterization procedures. Thus, numerous advantages offered by double-lumen devices are set to accelerate the catheters market during the estimation timeframe.
