The Catheters Market is Expected to be Flourished by Rising Demand for Minimally Invasive Surgical Procedures

Large Paragraph: Catheters are thin, hollow tubes that are inserted into various parts of the body to perform medical procedures. They are used to deliver fluids, medications, or gases into the body or drain fluids and gases out of it. Some common applications of catheters include administration of intravenous fluids and medications, drainage of urine from the bladder through the urethra, drainage of fluids during minimally invasive surgeries, and measuring pressure inside cavities of the heart and blood vessels. The increasing preference for minimally invasive surgical procedures to reduce complications, decrease hospital stay, lower healthcare costs, and faster recovery has boosted the demand for catheters significantly.

The global Catheters Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 54.68 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.4% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Dynamics:
The growing demand for minimally invasive surgical procedures is one of the major drivers propelling the catheters market growth. Minimally invasive procedures require smaller incisions thus reducing surgical complications, hospital stay, and recovery time. They also have lower healthcare costs associated with them. Rising patient preference for such procedures ensure a continuous demand for catheters to be used for drainage of fluids, delivery of medications, and measurement of vital parameters during surgeries. Another driver is the rising incidence of target conditions necessitating catheter procedures. The increasing geriatric population suffering from cardiovascular, urological, and neurological disorders boost the number of catheterization procedures performed annually across the globe.

Segment Analysis
The global catheters market can be segmented on the basis of product type, application, end-user and region. Under product type, the dominating sub-segment is cardiovascular catheters, which holds around 40% share of the total market.
