Overview of the Global and China Catheters Market
According to the findings of this report, the global catheters market stood at US$20.4 billion as of 2011. Based on the estimates of our analysts, this market will likely be worth US$33.3 billion by 2017, registering a healthy CAGR of 8.5% between 2011 and 2017.
The report also finds that in 2011, the segment of cardiovascular catheters led the market by product type. The cardiovascular catheters segment was valued at US$8.3 billion as of 2011. The market also studies the various geographical regions to assess where future opportunities lie. A study of the key geographical markets of North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, China, and Rest of the World reveals that in 2011, North America ranked as the largest regional market for catheters, with a 44.3% share of the global market. By 2016, this situation would have changed, with Europe slated to be the leading region in the global catheters market by the end of 2016.
The report attributes the growth of the overall catheters market to a growing number of minimally invasive surgeries, especially for cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and diseases related to the urinary tract (such as urinary bladder cancer). Procedures involved in the diagnosis and treatment of these conditions entail the use of catheters, which explains the growing demand for these medical consumables.
However, the catheters market will also have to contend with a few negatives such as the prevalence of infections associated with the use of catheters. If not diagnosed and treated on time, nosocomial infections could turn life-threatening. Yet, this is also where the opportunity lies for the catheter market. Companies need to focus on developing products that mitigate the problems associated with conventional catheters.
The report also estimates that in addition to Europe, the markets of India and China will create ample opportunities for the growth of the catheters market. The report also provides recommendations that will help players make the most of the opportunities in this industry.
