Central Venous Catheter Market: Non-tunnelled Catheters Expected to Dominate the Market Through 2026: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2016-2026

Report Description

A central venous catheter, also known as central line catheter, is a long, thin, flexible tube placed in a large vein near the heart. It reaches a large vein through the internal jugular vein, subclavian vein or femoral vein. Central venous catheters are used for administering medicines, fluids, nutrients, blood and blood products. Also, these catheters are used for measuring central venous pressure (CVP), haemodialysis and chemotherapy over a long period of time.

Central venous catheters considered in this report fall under tunnelled and non-tunnelled product category. Tunnelled catheters are inserted subcutaneously from the site of the insertion. The catheter and its attachments are underneath the skin. The risk of infection is lower due to subcutaneous tunnelling to distal exit site. Whereas Non-tunnelled catheters are mostly inserted through subclavian vein or internal jugular vein. The insertion method is percutaneous venipuncture. The surgeon or anaesthesiologist inserts the CVC at the patient’s bedside in the operation theatre. As non-tunnelled catheter protrudes externally and there is no subcutaneous tunnelling, the risk of infection is high.

The global central venous catheter market has been estimated to be valued at US$ 647.9 Mn in 2015 and is expected to register a 5.1% CAGR over the forecast period (2016–2026).

Increasing rates of hospitalisations coupled with a high adoption rate is boosting the global central venous catheter market

Growth of the global central venous catheter market is mainly driven by rising adoption and growing demand for antimicrobial coated catheters, coupled with socio-economic factors such as increasing disease incidences due to a growing geriatric population. Other prominent growth drivers are product innovations and increasing rates of hospitalisations.

Product category, insertion procedure, indication and the age of the patient is set to define the reimbursement landscape for central venous catheters. Catheter manufacturers are concentrating on investing more on product design and quality to minimize the impact on patient safety.

However, higher cost of antimicrobial coated catheters and complications associated with central venous catheterization procedures act as restraints in the global central venous catheter market.
