Indwelling Catheters Market Overview:

The global indwelling catheters market size accounted for $1,210.56 million in 2019, and is expected to reach $2,323.56 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 9.1% from 2020 to 2027.

Indwelling catheters, also known as foley catheters, are flexible tubes that are passed through the urethra and bladder to facilitate easy drainage of urine. They are considered essential in the urology sector, aiding patients with bladder dysfunctions to drain urine into urine bags, and reducing urology-related complications. Foley catheters are predominantly used when an individual has difficulties associated with the release of urine such as urinary incontinence, urinary retention, or when a patient has undergone surgery related to prostate or genitals. The other devices which are connected externally have their role as collective such as bag and drainage tubing and are directly connected with the catheter. It also has a catheter valve for emptying of the bladder. The indwelling catheters can be placed for short duration of time or even longer period as per the requirement and also according to the condition patient is experiencing. The conditions in which the indwelling catheters are used include dementia, intractable urinary incontinence, and inability of the bladder to retain urine and other conditions where the muscles of the urinary bladder get affected


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, majority of healthcare, pharmaceutical and biotechnology organizations have concentrated on diagnostics kits, safety wearables and treatment vaccines and medication against Novel coronavirus. Most of the leading companies are focusing on finding a breakthrough vaccine against Novel coronavirus. In addition, the medical professionals are engaged in providing COVID-19 related services. As a result, other healthcare segments have to face negligence. Moreover, pharmaceutical companies are prioritizing research and development of COVID-19 related diagnostics, treatments, health technologies and vaccines, as well as looking at the potential of existing treatments. All these factors are anticipated to impact the global indwelling catheters market as well in the future.

Moreover, several medical conditions such as spinal cord injuries, dementia, and multiple sclerosis, among others are prone to cause urinary disorders as a side-effect of medication and other complications. In case the severity of such disorders is beyond the control of medication, healthcare providers advise the use of foley catheters with the period of usage ranging from days to weeks, based on the severity.

The high prevalence of urinary disorders is the primary factor driving the demand for indwelling catheters. Numerous studies have found that the prevalence of urinary incontinence ranges between 25-45% and it can rise to 50% in the middle-aged and older population. As the incidence of urinary diseases continues to rise in direct proportion with the growing geriatric population, the need for indwelling catheters will prevail high for the years to come.

Significant increase in prevalence of chronic diseases such as urological disease, diseases associated with urinary bladder, kidney failures, and others are the major factors that drive the global indwelling catheters market. In addition, surge in demand for minimal invasive surgeries among patients further fuels the indwelling catheters market growth. In addition, increase in incontinence problems owing to rise in geriatric population base across the globe, and increase in demand for sterile & disposable catheters contribute to the market growth. However, inadequate quality assurance and price competition at domestic levels are expected to hamper this growth. In addition, risk of infections due to the use of catheters has also turned up as a major restraining factor for the catheters market. On the contrary, increase in reimbursement levels and advancements in catheter technology is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for the indwelling catheters market in the near future.
