The growing prevalence of urinary incontinence, an increasing number of surgical procedures across the globe, high incidence of prostate cancer, and the favorable reimbursement scenario are the major factors driving the growth of this market.
The global urinary catheters market size is projected to reach USD 2.6 billion by 2025 from USD 2.0 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period.
Market Segmentation :
Based on products, the global market is segmented into indwelling catheters, intermittent catheters, and external catheters. Indwelling catheters accounted for the largest share of the market in 2019. These catheters are also widely used in high-acuity patient units, with critical care and intensive care units registering the highest usage of indwelling catheters. Growth in this market is largely driven by the cost-efficiency and high availability of indwelling catheters in the market.
By catheter type, the global market is segmented into coated and uncoated catheters. Coated catheters accounted for the largest share of the market in 2019. This segment is also expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Growth in this market is mainly driven by the various advantages associated with coated catheters, such as easier, more comfortable insertion, low risk of catheter-associated urinary tract infection, reduced risk of urethral damage, and improved patient satisfaction.
Regional Analysis: -
The market is segmented into four major regions—North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW). North America was the largest regional market for urinary catheters in 2019. The large share of North America in this market can be attributed to the favorable reimbursement scenario and the rising volume of surgeries in the region. However, the Asia Pacific market is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The high growth in this market can be attributed to the growing healthcare spending in emerging Asian countries, rising prevalence of urinary incontinence, and the large target patient population in the region.
