Global Diagnostic Catheter Market- Overview

Catheters are thin tubes with diameters ranging from 2 mm to 3 mm and are manufactured of medical-grade materials such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC), plastic, nylon, and silicon rubber. These are injected into a patient's body to stimulate analysis and treatment. Catheterization is a vital co-procedure that is performed in conjunction with many other medical procedures such as urethral catheterization, neurosurgery, cardiac electrophysiology, and angioplasty. For instance, diagnostic catheter angiography is the ideal standard for determining vascular abnormalities in the head brain, spine, and neck. Likewise, electrophysiology diagnostic catheters are utilized for transient intracardiac monitoring, recording, stimulation, and mapping.

Global Diagnostic Catheter Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Growing preference for OCT imaging catheters in intravascular diagnostics and imaging

The effective use of OCT imaging in numerous investigative areas, such as cardiology, has resulted in greater adoption of OCT imaging catheters by medical staff for various investigative signals. The resolution limitations of coronary angiography, as well as the need for better accuracy during percutaneous interferences, have driven the demand for high-resolution intracoronary imaging technologies such as OCT. The various advantages of OCT imaging have compelled numerous important participants in the inspective catheter business to promote new OCT imaging systems and catheters for investigative purposes.

Technological advancements in imaging catheters

Diagnostic catheters are useful in a variety of investigative approaches that involve various imaging technologies. The market for diagnostic catheters is expanding as new applications and technologies emerge. These catheters are utilized for a variety of indications in different fields such as cardiology, urology, gastrointestinal, neurology, and others. Last but not least, continuous developments in catheter designs to shorten their use and make them safer and more effective play an essential role in the development of the diagnostic catheter market worldwide.

Restraints

High Adoption of Reusable Diagnostic Catheters

Medical waste is a big environmental concern, hence many countries are launching various measures to reduce the amount of medical waste. One of those initiatives is promoting the use of reusable diagnostic catheters for medical procedures and research purposes. However, due to this, the demand for the new diagnostic catheters has dropped significantly affecting the revenue of the market. Furthermore, the adoption of reusable diagnostic catheters is also proliferating for cost-efficiency purposes, restricting the market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on Global Diagnostic Catheter Market

COVID-19 has had a negative impact on the world economy by directly impacting production and demand, as well as disrupting supply chains and markets. Soon after the COVID-19 was declared a pandemic, several countries had to enforce nationwide lockdown to curb the spread of the deadly virus, Such plans have caused disturbances in the manufacturing and supply chain. As a result of the disruptions caused by the pandemic, the global diagnostic catheter market had to go through a rough patch during the lockdown phase. Furthermore, all types of non-emergency and elective surgeries were immediately postponed following the lockdown to ensure the safety of the patients and doctors into consideration. Due to this, the demand for diagnostic catheters dropped significantly and affected the market negatively.

Global Diagnostic Catheter Market - By Product Type

Based on the product type, the global diagnostic catheter market is segmented into cardiovascular catheters, neurovascular catheters, urological catheters, specialty catheters, intravenous catheters, and other types. Among these, the cardiovascular catheters segment dominates the global diagnostics market due to the high prevalence of cardiovascular diseases. They are increasingly being employed in hospitals and diagnostic facilities due to their high efficiency in confirming coronary artery constriction. This helps in excluding this artery during the heart valve or other major surgeries.

Global Diagnostic Catheter Market - By Application 

Based on application, the global diagnostics catheters market is classified into gastroenterology, cardiology, urology, neurology, and others. Among these, the cardiology segment accounted for the largest market share among all applications in 2020. Diagnostic catheters are prominently used in diagnosing various heart problems like coronary artery disease, heart valve problems, heart muscle dysfunction, congenital health disease, etc. The increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, along with the rising geriatric population around the world are the major factors driving the market growth for diagnostic catheters.
