Such reimbursement policies contribute to the large share of the segment, as they reduce the out-of-pocket expenditure of the patients.

Government and regulatory bodies in several countries are adopting a number of cost-containment measures to reduce the healthcare burden, especially in developed economies. This shift from volume-to-value based system is driven by various initiatives taken by government, radiotherapy service providers, which include outcome-based pricing, profit & risk sharing, price control, and competitive tendering.


High cost and risks and complications associated with the catheters

The high price of catheters increases the overall treatment cost, due to which patients, at times, prefer taking oral medications, instead to opting for treatment that involves the use of these catheters. Higher costs and reported complications and ill effects of catheter such as PIVC needle-stick injuries and exposure of blood, may remain a longstanding barrier to mass adoption of catheter in developing and underdeveloped countries.

The risk and complication rising in the catheter industry due to catheter material such as latex and surgery type with significant rate in the current and upcoming market. Patients who undergo cardiac catheterization are at a higher risk of catheter-associated bloodstream infections due to repeated use of catheters which is anticipated to hinder cardiovascular catheter market during the forecast period of 2020-2026.
