report has been added to's

According to the report, the global catheters market will reach $42.5
billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 7.5% during 2014-2020.

Increased usage of catheters in minimally invasive surgeries and the
introduction of technologically advanced catheters with improved
efficacy contribute to growth of the global catheters market.
Cardiovascular catheters are the largest revenue generating segment in
the overall catheters market.

Growing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and urinary
diseases is expected to boost demand for catheters. Overall, similar
consumption pattern for catheters witnessed in several other medical
conditions has resulted in increased usage of catheters thereby
increasing the market size of the global catheters market.

Promoting the further use/adoption of catheters is innovation and
development of variants that overcome drawbacks of the conventional
catheters; for instance, development of male external catheters minimize
chances/incidences of urinary tract infection resulting from insertion
of catheters in the patient's body.

High cost involved in cardiac and neurological procedures and lack of
experienced and skilled professionals limit the growth of the global
catheters market. Also, increasing incidences of nosocomial infections;
for example, catheter-associated urinary tract infections are among the
prime factors restricting growth of urological catheters market.

Going forward, developing regional - India and China catheters markets
are expected to offer potential opportunities owing to increasing
awareness and adoption of minimally invasive procedures (that
necessitate usage of catheters).

Companies operating in the catheters market focus on several strategies
such as product launch, collaboration and acquisition. For example, Bard
Medicals's R&D spend of ~8% of the total revenue is intended for
development and commercialization of feature-enhanced catheters; overall
driving growth of the global catheters market.
