The global catheter market is a diverse industry with both multinational companies and smaller regional companies participating in a very competitive market.

Segments of the market covered in this report include cardiovascular, urological, neurovascular and intravenous catheters, as well as specialty products such as suction, thermodilution, oximetry catheters, anesthesia and reproductive catheters. In some areas, particularly neurovascular, some procedures would not be possible without the use of catheters.

The number of catheterization procedures performed worldwide is affected by -
- A globally aging population and its healthcare needs.
- Higher incidences of chronic diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and obesity.
- The effects of weak economies on overall healthcare utilization rates.
- Efforts by third-party payers to lower costs associated with medical procedures.
- Investigations by governmental agencies into potential overutilization of procedures.
- The implementation by hospitals of policies designed to reduce the incidence of unnecessary procedures.
- Growing concerns over infection rates with catheter use, which is improving technologies.
- New diagnostic imaging and functional assessment modalities that more effectively screen patients to determine the need for treatment.

Worldwide demographic factors, including the growing incidence of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease appear to favor long-term growth in the number of interventional procedures, prompting an overall compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of REDACTED between 2018 and 2023. The global catheter market for the covered five segments is expected to reach nearly REDACTED by 2023.

The market for catheters in medically-advanced regions such as the U.S. and Western Europe is more mature, particularly for products in the urological and intravenous areas. Growth in developed regions will be mainly due to (1) introduction of advanced catheters during the forecast period, (2) an increase in the over-65 segment of the population and (3) the continued rise in chronic diseases such as heart disease.
