According to Fact MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, value of the global coronary microcatheters market was US$ 179 Mn in 2020. Sales of coronary microcatheters for cardiac applications is growing rapidly due to increasing prevalence of coronary artery diseases (CAD) such as unstable angina and rising incidence of sudden cardiac death.

Medical professionals and researchers are using different tip types in operational processes, such as steerable, angled tip, and straight tip, according to the need of the hour. Key players are primarily focusing on collaborations with other brands to improve their position in the market.

  • For instance, in February 2021, Terumo Corporation collaborated with Health Outcomes Sciences, Inc., which helped the company deliver personalized, predictive insights at point-of-care that improves the overall outcome in treatment.

Various innovative products are being launched by key players to improve treatment processes.

  • In August, 2020, Medtronic launched the Telescope Guide Extension Catheter. This surgical catheter is specifically used for providing extra support and access to distal lesions. It has also helped in delivering coronary stents, balloons, and other interventional devices meant for angioplasty procedures.

Developmental stages of advanced coronary microcatheters require huge capital expenditure. With rise in the number of new entrants in the market, overall research & development expenses are projected to rise exponentially, along with collaborations and licensing agreements with several research institutes. 

Fact MR expects the coronary microcatheters market to rise at 6.7% CAGR from 2021 to 2031. Demand is growing significantly due to rapid adoption of new technologies for the treatment of coronary heart diseases.

How is High Prevalence of Cardiovascular Diseases Shaping Demand for Coronary Microcatheters?

Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of deaths across the world. Both, developed and developing countries face this problem due to changing lifestyles. 

For instance, in 2019, according to WHO, approximately 17.9 million deaths were recorded due to cardiovascular diseases, i.e., around 32% of total deaths worldwide. Thus, growing incidence of cardiovascular diseases across the world will create demand for better diagnostics and treatment options, thus driving sales of coronary microcatheters as well.

An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

What are the Key Opportunities Awaiting Manufacturers of Coronary Microcatheters?

In the case of coronary microcatheters, increasing production base across low-cost manufacturing clusters such as India, China, South Africa, and other Asian countries is expected to aid market growth. Key players are focusing on developing cost-effective products to target more number of patients. As such, various emerging market players are mainly involved in developing cost-effective products.

What is Adversely Affecting Sales of Coronary Microcatheters? 

Stringent regulations make it difficult for manufacturers to gain approvals from regulatory bodies such as FDA for their innovations and products. For the use of coronary microcatheters, it is important to gain approval from different authoring committees.

For manufacturing and using a novel coronary microcatheter, it is mandatory to gain approval from the FDA's Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) and the CE Mark. These strict regulations hamper market growth to some extent due to longer approval time.
