Market Report Description

The Global Cardiac Catheters & Guidewires Market size is expected to reach $19 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 7.4% CAGR during the forecast period.

Cardiac catheters are a tool that is frequently used in angioplasty, PCI, cardiac catheterization, as well as other interventional procedures. The cardiac catheter aids in determining the existence of valve disease and coronary artery disease as well as monitoring the function of the heart muscle. For operations like angioplasty as well as other interventional procedures, a cardiac catheter is used as the first step. Cardiac catheters and guidewires are frequently employed in the treatment of such illnesses.

Coronary artery disease is treated with a catheter-based interventional procedure. The heart's blood flow is increased during this operation by using a cardiac catheter to clear blocked coronary arteries. Similar to this, doctors typically advise angioplasty for the treatment of peripheral vascular disorders. During this operation, the afflicted artery is examined using a cardiac catheter, which reopens the artery and flattens the blockage in the artery wall.

The development of the industry is ascribed to developments in technology, actions taken by various governments and organizations, and an increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases. The need for cardiac catheters and guidewires is projected to increase due to the rising prevalence of chronic conditions worldwide. After being pushed into the artery till it reaches the blocked coronary artery, the catheter tip is then inserted through the restricted area. After being introduced into the confined region, the balloon is inflated to minimize the obstruction.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The market for cardiac catheters and guidewires is negatively impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. The number of normal and elective operations, like cardiac catheterization procedural volume, significantly decreased as a result of hospitals being required to make room for potential patients due to COVID-19 emergency cases. Medical supplies are becoming more and more in demand as a result of the afflicted populace. COVID-19 has caused a significant increase in demand for medical goods such as gloves, masks, and protective eyewear. The demand for medical supplies continues to grow among the general public and healthcare professionals due to the increase in COVID-19 cases around the world.

Market Growth Factors

The Rise in Healthcare Spending

The constantly expanding healthcare infrastructure of various nations throughout the world is one of the key factors boosting the availability of cardiac catheters. Governments across the globe are putting more effort and money into their countries' healthcare infrastructure as a result of the rise in health cancers, diseases, and disorders. Furthermore, the ongoing pandemic that continues to demand the attention and resources of healthcare systems all over the world is forcing the healthcare business to adapt to new problems.

Increasing Cases of Cardiovascular Diseases

As people's lifestyles around the world change quickly, so does the prevalence of numerous diseases and disorders. Cardiovascular disease is one of the serious conditions that can be brought on by people's changing lifestyles. The main behavioral risk factors for heart disease and stroke include unhealthy eating, physical inactivity, smoking, and problematic alcohol usage. As a result of behavioral risk factors, people may have symptoms including high blood pressure, high blood lipids, high blood sugar, or overweight or obesity.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Risks Associated with Catheterization

A diagnostic cardiac catheterization procedure typically carries a risk of serious complications of less than 1% and a mortality risk of less than 0.05%. The complication rate for any patient depends on a number of variables, including the patient's demographics, vascular anatomy, co-existing diseases, clinical presentation, the surgery being done, and the operator's experience. The problems might range from minor ones, like soreness at the catheterization site, to serious ones, like death.

Cardiac Catheters & Guidewires Market Share and Industry Analysis Report 2021

Product Outlook

Based on product, the cardiac catheters & guidewires market is segment cardiac catheters and cardiac guidewires. The cardiac guidewires segment acquired a substantial revenue share in the cardiac catheters & guidewires market in 2021. Guide wires are specialized devices used to administer treatments to damaged sections of the coronary artery system, which is the vascular system in charge of supplying the heart muscle with oxygen-rich blood.

Cardiac Catheters Segment Outlook

Under the cardiac catheters segment, the cardiac catheters & guidewires market is further divided into electrophysiology catheters, PTCA balloons catheters, IVUS catheters, PTA balloons catheters, guide extension catheters, and others. The PTCA balloons catheters segment garnered the substantial revenue share in the cardiac catheters & guidewires market in 2021. When coronary artery disease causes blocked or constrictive coronary arteries, PTCA is done to clear them (CAD). Without requiring open heart surgery, PTCA balloon catheters enables blood to freely flow from the arteries to the heart muscles.

End User Outlook

On the basis of end-use, the cardiac catheters & guidewires market is fragmented into hospitals, clinics, and ambulatory surgical centers. In 2021, the hospital segment held the largest revenue share in the cardiac catheters & guidewires market. Since these issues are often treated with angioplasty, PCI, and cardiac catheterization, a rise in cases of these diseases is anticipated to increase the hospital admission rate.
