The global Indwelling Catheters Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 7.7Bn in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.4% over the forecast period 2023-2030, according to a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Indwelling catheters are medical devices that are used to drain urine from the bladder for patients who are unable to urinate on their own. These catheters are inserted into the bladder through the urethra and are held in place by an inflated balloon. Indwelling catheters offer advantages such as ease of use, reduced discomfort, and improved patient mobility. With the rise in the geriatric population and the increasing incidence of urinary incontinence and bladder-related disorders, the demand for indwelling catheters is expected to witness significant growth in the coming years.
Market Key Trends:
One key trend observed in the indwelling catheters market is the growing preference for minimally invasive procedures. Indwelling catheters provide a less invasive alternative to traditional surgical methods for bladder drainage. This minimizes the risk of complications, reduces hospital stay, and ensures faster recovery for patients. As a result, healthcare providers are increasingly adopting indwelling catheters as a preferred choice for bladder management.
The indwelling catheters market can be segmented based on product type, end-user, and region. In terms of product type, the dominating segment is the Foley catheters. Foley catheters are widely used due to their ease of insertion, comfort, and ability to remain in place for extended periods. The demand for Foley catheters is expected to remain high in the forecast period due to increasing cases of urinary incontinence and the growing elderly population. Other segments in the product type category include intermittent catheters, external catheters, and condom catheters.
In terms of end-users, hospitals and clinics are the dominating segment in the indwelling catheters market. This can be attributed to the large patient pool in hospitals and the availability of skilled healthcare professionals for catheter insertion. Other end-users in this market include homecare settings and ambulatory surgical centers.
The global Indwelling Catheters Market is expected to witness high growth, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.4% over the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to several factors. Firstly, the increasing prevalence of urinary incontinence, particularly among the elderly population, is driving the demand for indwelling catheters. Additionally, the rising adoption of minimally invasive procedures and technological advancements in catheter design are further propelling market growth.
In terms of regional analysis, North America is expected to be the fastest-growing and dominating region in the indwelling catheters market. This can be attributed to the high prevalence of urinary incontinence, well-established healthcare infrastructure, and favorable reimbursement policies in the region. Europe is also expected to contribute significantly to the market growth due to the growing geriatric population and increasing healthcare expenditure.
