Global Drainage Catheter Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Increasing Concern about Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs) Globally - According to the World Health Organization (WHO) data, in the year 2019, amongst the 17 million premature deaths caused by non-communicable diseases, 38% of those deaths were attributed to CVDs.
  • High Prevalence of Kidney Diseases - According to the data by the U. S. National Kidney Foundation, in the year 2018, chronic kidney disease affected an estimated 37 million people in the U.S.

Prolonged use of the urinary catheter is associated with high risk of Urinary tract infections. Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the most common type of healthcare-associated infection. Approximately 15%-30% of adult hospital inpatients will have an indwelling urinary catheter (IUC) at some time during their hospitalization, and each day the indwelling urinary catheter remains, a patient has a ~10% increased risk of acquiring a catheter-associated urinary tract infection.
  • Shortage of Skilled Nursing Facilities – Although America’s healthcare professional is constituted with more than 4 million registered nurses in the United States and 950,000 licensed practical or vocational nurses, it is estimated that, by the end of 2022, ~1 million trained and skilled nurses are needed to address the shortage in nursing facilities.
