vascular guidewires market outlook - 2025
The global vascular guidewires market size in 2017 is $883 million, and is projected to reach $1,336 million by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2018 to 2025.A guidewire is a flexible wire (may also be a spring in some cases), which helps the surgeons for introduction and proper placement of a medical device (particularly prosthesis) into a patient’s body. The use of guidewires is essential during an interventional procedure as guidewires assist a medical practitioner and guide a medical device through the patient’s anatomy. Therefore, vascular guidewires are used during various surgical procedures such as placement of angioplasty balloons, angioplasty stents, endovascular aneurysm repair stent grafts, plaque modification devices, hemodynamic flow alteration devices, and inferior vena cava filters.
The global vascular guidewires market experiences growth due to rise in prevalence of cardiovascular disorders and increase in geriatric population. In addition, demand for minimally invasive procedures and rapid technological advancements in guidewires further drive the market growth. However, risks & complications associated with guidewires and availability of effective conventional treatment options is projected to impede growth of the vascular guidewires market. On the contrary, increase in use of nitinol in vascular guidewires and growth opportunities in the emerging economies of the Asia-Pacific and LAMEA regions are expected to provide significant profitable opportunities for the manufacturers in the vascular guidewires industry. Hence, these drivers and opportunities help increase the global vascular guidewires market share.
The vascular guidewires market is segmented based on application, coating type, end user, and region. Based on product, the market is bifurcated into coronary guidewires and peripheral guidewires. Depending on coating type, the market is categorized into coated and non-coated. Coated segment is further bifurcated into hydrophilic coating and hydrophobic coating. Based on end user, the market is segmented into hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs). Based on region, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
Application segment review
Based on application, the vascular guidewires market is segmented into coronary guidewires, peripheral guidewires, urology guidewires, and neurovascular guidewires. The coronary guidewires segment was the major revenue contributor in 2017, and is anticipated to continue this trend during the forecast period, owing to the increase in prevalence of cardiac disorders and rise in number of minimally invasive surgeries to treat blocked arteries. On the other hand, the peripheral guidewires segment is projected to exhibit the highest growth during the forecast period, due to increase in number of patients who suffer from peripheral artery diseases (PAD).
End user segment review
Depending on end user, the vascular guidewires market is categorized hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs). The ambulatory surgical centers segment is projected to exhibit the highest growth during the forecast period owing to the increased popularity of ASCs due to their cost-effective, high-quality alternatives to hospital-based treatment. On the other hand, the hospitals segment was the major revenue contributor in 2017, and is anticipated to continue this trend during the forecast period, as hospitals are well-equipped with cardiovascular units to cater to various needs of cardiac procedures and immediate requirements can be fulfilled.
Region segment review
Based on region, the vascular guidewires market is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. North America dominated the market in 2017, accounting for the highest share, and is anticipated to maintain this trend throughout the forecast period. This is attributed to the development of innovative devices, adoption of minimally invasive surgeries, and mergers & acquisitions to acquire novel technologies are the important market trends. The market in Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, attributable to high prevalence of chronic diseases and increase in mortality rate, mainly due to an adoption of the western lifestyle and changes in the dietary habits of people. In addition, high population base, increase in disposable income of people, presence of unmet medical needs, and rise in medical tourism in the region further drives the vascular guidewires market growth.
