Global Diagnostic Catheter Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The global diagnostic catheter market is estimated to be worth USD 6.08 billion by 2028 from USD 4.26 billion in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 7.37% during the forecast period. 

Catheters are thin tubes made of medical-grade materials such as plastic, silicon rubber, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and nylon inserted into the patient’s body for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes. Catheterization is a primary co-procedure performed with various other medical procedures, such as angioplasty, cardiac electrophysiology, and neurosurgery, wherein catheters are used. The diagnostic catheter is a hollow plastic tube of 2-3 MM diameter, and these catheters are used in various diagnostic procedures using multiple imaging techniques. These diagnostic catheters are used for several indications in applications such as gastroenterology, neurology, cardiology, urology, and others.

Impact of COVID-19 on the diagnostic catheter market:

COVID-19 has negatively affected all sectors of the economy during the first half of the pandemic period. As a result, the World Health Organization announced COVID-19 as an emergency in healthcare. Coronavirus is an infectious disease that quickly spreads from person to person; governments have imposed nationwide lockdowns and a ban on flights to control the spread of the virus. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a mixed impact on the diagnostic catheter market and the healthcare industry. The disruption of supply chains and the availability of medical devices, including diagnostic catheters, are a few significant setbacks of COVID-19. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to disruptions in the production and distribution of these devices, which further affected the supply and demand for diagnostic catheters. During the COVID-19 pandemic, hospitals and clinics focused completely on treating patients with COVID-19, and almost all the non-emergency treatment procedures were put on hold, including elective surgeries. The sudden decrease in the number of surgeries hampered the demand levels for diagnostic catheters and created a slump in the market’s growth rate for a short period. On the other side, the usage of diagnostic catheters has seen a spike as they were used in remote monitoring due to the increased adoption of telemedicine. During the forecast period, the diagnostic catheter market is expected to register a healthy growth rate with the unlock guidelines by governments everywhere. 

MARKET DRIVERS:

Owing to the rise in the number of surgeries and the high demand for minimally invasive procedures, the global market for diagnostic catheters is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period.

The rising number of surgeries performed each day is anticipated to reflect the growing demand for diagnostic catheters, as these devices are commonly used in various surgical procedures. According to National Centre for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), an estimated 310 million surgical procedures are performed yearly. Diagnostic catheters are used in minimally invasive procedures to visualize the inside of the body and diagnose medical conditions. For instance, catheters can be used in endoscopy procedures, where they are inserted through the mouth or anus to examine the digestive or respiratory systems. In addition, catheters can also be used in angiography, in which they are used to visualize the blood vessels and assess blood flow.

In addition, the growth of the global diagnostic catheter market is driven by factors such as the rising geriatric population, increasing chronic diseases, kidney and cardiovascular diseases, and the increasing number of minimally invasive surgeries. According to data published by the World Health Organization (WHO), the ratio of the world's population aged 60 or over is expected to grow from 12% in 2021 to 22% by 2050. Besides, growing reimbursement in imaging catheter technology and improving technological advancements are expected to create demand for these products. Increasing investments by the key market players in R&D, innovations, and new technologies are expected to boost the market's growth rate during the forecast period. Moreover, investments by the government and various private organizations to develop healthcare infrastructure are further expected to accelerate market growth. Also, an increase in the geriatric population base and a rise in demand for sterile & disposable catheters supplement the market growth. Furthermore, the increase in reimbursement levels and catheter technology advancements is expected to boost the market growth.

MARKET RESTRAINTS:

However, inadequate quality assurance and price competition at domestic levels are expected to hamper this growth. Additionally, the unavailability of skilled professionals and the high cost of these devices are expected to restrain the development of the diagnostic catheter market. Furthermore, strict regulatory standards are to be followed to manufacture and receive approval for diagnostic catheters, which is time-consuming and costly and negatively impacts the worldwide market growth. The competition levels in the global diagnostic catheter market are increasing, making it difficult for new entrants to enter and hold occupancy. This intense competition is expected to limit the market’s growth rate from achieving its full potential.
