Led by Cardiovascular Applications, Double Digit Growth Expected for Catheter Sales
Date:3/3/2008

NEW YORK, March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The world market for catheters was valued at more than $13.5 billion in 2007 and is expected to increase more than 60% in the next five years. The cardiovascular catheter segment accounts for more than half of the total catheter market in terms of value and will witness the highest compound annual growth rates, catheters used for angiography and angioplasty demonstrating the greatest increase, according to Kalorama Information's new report The Worldwide Market for Catheters.

Cardiovascular disease represents 30% of worldwide illness and is the number one cause of death. With improvements in healthcare keeping chronic disease sufferers alive for longer periods, it is no surprise that the cardiovascular catheter segment is producing double digit growth rates. Innovation is also driving growth with the introduction of antiseptic-coated catheters aimed at reducing the 2 million infections contracted by hospital patients in the U.S. each year, and coronary catheters that have undergone significant changes with highly innovative, effective, minimally invasive devices arriving in the marketplace.

"Catheters will be used in smaller incisions or be made of materials that can withstand greater stresses," notes the study's author, Joseph Constance. "Innovation is occurring as new applications open up for catheters, and the U.S. is in the forefront in developing premium catheter technology."
