Cardiovascular catheterization is a procedure used to detect blockages and clear them. The traditional method of catheterization is the femoral artery access. Radial access catheterization is another method of cardiovascular catheterization in which the catheter is introduced through the radial artery. Radial Access Catheter is gaining popularity among the interventional cardiologists. This is due to reduced bleeding risk and access site complications. However factors such as lack of training, and high cost of the procedure and equipment restrict the growth of the radial access catheter market.
Although radial access catheterization is a technically challenging procedure for cardiologists, the patient is more comfortable during the procedure and the risk of bleeding is significantly reduced. This is due to a number of factors including, the small size of radial artery, faster response and wound closure or recovery, thereby decreasing the recovery time significantly. However, due to the small size and more number of twists the procedure may take a longer duration than the traditional method, resulting in increased radiation exposure. Such factors are slowing down the adoption of radial access catheters globally.
Technology advancements, increase in R&D funding and rise in mergers and acquisitions are some opportunities for growth in the radial access catheter market. With increase in R&D for new products that overcome the current drawbacks such as increased radiation exposure and simplifying the procedure could enhance the adoption rate for radial access catheters significantly.
Radial Access Catheter Market: Drivers and Restraints
Increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, changes in lifestyle, increasing use of radial access catheter in pediatric patients, and increasing preference for minimally invasive procedures and interventional cardiology procedures are some of the factors that drive the growth of the radial access catheter market. However, high cost of procedures, and lack of skilled and trained healthcare professionals are some of the factors that hinder the growth of the radial access catheter market.
