Foley Catheters Market

Latex Foley Catheters to Account for 9 out of 10 sales until 2031: Fact.MR Study

Published : 31 Aug 2021 Industry: Healthcare

Newly published data by Fact.MR establishes that the global foley catheters market is expected to exhibit a steady expansion trajectory, growing at a compounded annual growth rate of 5.9% to reach US$ 7.1 Bn across the 2021-2031 forecast period. Rising prevalence of urinary disorders is majorly sustaining expansion prospects for the market.

From 2016 to 2020, foley catheters sales expanded at a CAGR of 5%, closing in at over US$ 4 Bn by the end of the said historical period. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, priority to coronavirus infected patients led to the relegation of elective surgeries, including those for urinary disorders. This stalled demand for foley catheters to a significant extent in the first half of 2020.

According to the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), urinary retention affects 4.5 to 6.8 males per 1,000 men each year. The American Academy of Family Physicians says (AAFP). The market is developing steadily in 2021, and with key players adopting more tactics, the market is predicted to rise throughout the forecast period. The growing innovations in foley catheters that result in increased patient comfort are projected to propel the foley catheters market forward.
