Guidewires Market Trends

  • Increasing demand for minimally invasive surgeries (MIS) is driving the market growth

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is becoming more and more popular. Compared to invasive operations like open heart surgery, these methods cause less trauma to patients and hasten their recovery. Manufacturers (Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc.) have published research findings that show how quickly open/invasive surgeries are being replaced by minimally invasive ones.

The risk of developing chronic ailments like obesity, cardiovascular disease, and metabolic disorders has increased as a result of unhealthy and changing lifestyle patterns, such as consumption of salt, saturated fats, and sweets; lack of physical activity; high tobacco and alcohol use; and lack of physical activity. Growing rates of obesity, dietary abnormalities, and smoking are among the lifestyle habits that are contributing to the rise in cardiovascular, neurological, and urology-based disorders.

WHO (2018) estimates that cardiovascular illnesses account for 17.7 million annual fatalities. The prevalence of cardiovascular disease is increasing over the world as a result of an increase in unhealthy lifestyle choices like obesity and dietary abnormalities, smoking, and other factors. Additionally, the market is growing as a result of the steady increase of patients with congenital heart disease.

Catheters, stents, and other medical devices are implanted using guidewires. One factor that is anticipated to have an effect on catheter use is the increasing frequency of catheter-associated infections that are contracted in hospitals. Causing diseases such catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) and intravascular catheter-related infections is the development of bacterial biofilm, particularly in the case of indwelling catheters.

Growing public knowledge of catheter-associated infections and their effects on patients' quality of life is anticipated to limit catheter use, which will ultimately have an influence on the market for guidewires. It is anticipated that the market dynamics would shift in favor the market of guidewires with the introduction of technological improvements aimed at minimizing catheter-associated infections and FDA publications aimed at raising awareness about the proper use of catheters. Thus, driving the Guidewires market revenue.

Guidewires Market Segment Insights

Guidewires Product Insights

The Market segments of Guidewires, based on Product includes coronary, peripheral, urology, and neurovascular. Due to the increased demand for minimally invasive coronary operations, the coronary segment had the biggest revenue share at 44.8%. A considerable number of patients with atherosclerosis are admitted to hospitals, and cardiovascular disease is becoming more common, both of which support the segment's expansion. Nearly 92.1 million American adults, according to the Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics 2018 report, had a cardiovascular disease in 2017.

Guidewires Coating Insights

The Guidewires Market segmentation, based on Coating, includes coated and non-coated. Due to strong demand, coated category accounted for the majority of income. These materials facilitate easy access to blood vessels while reducing friction and maintaining tactile sense. Both hydrophilic and hydrophobic coatings are available on the market. There are other conventionally applied uncoated products on the market. However, due to the benefits that coated guidewires provide, the use of uncoated guidewires is drastically decreasing.

Guidewires Raw Material Insights

The Market segmentation of Guidewires, based on Raw Material, includes nitinol, stainless steel, and others. The majority of the revenue share in terms of raw materials was made up of stainless steel. Due to its qualities, including strong corrosion resistance combined with antibacterial, non-magnetic, and non-staining features, stainless steel is a highly favored raw material. Strong support, push force transfer, and torque standards are provided by stainless steel. Paragon Diagnostic Guidewire (Integer Holdings Corporation), Amplatz Support Wire Guide (Cook), and True Form Reshapable Guide Wire (Merit Medical Systems) are a few examples of goods made of stainless steel.
