Guidewires Market Analysis By Product Type (Coronary Guidewires, Peripheral Guidewires, Neurovascular Guidewires, Urology Guidewires, Radiology Guidewires, Gastroenterology Guidewires), By End User (Hospitals, Clinics, ASCs)- Global Forecast 2020-2025
Guidewires Market Outlook
The global guidewires market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period (2020-2025). The market is pegged to reach a value of US$ 2.6 Billion by the end of 2025.
Advancements in guidewire tip technologies have increased the adoption of interventional radiology techniques in image-guided diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Interventional radiology has significantly improved patient recovery outcomes.
This is because the procedure involves minimum risk, less pain, and faster recovery time compared to open surgery. Interventional radiology is highly suitable for vascular, gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, pulmonary, and genitourinary diseases.
The rise in the adoption of minimally invasive surgeries, coupled with technological advancements in surgical procedures is poised to propel the global guidewires market in the future.

Coronary Guidewires to Dominate, Urology Guidewires Show High Expansion Rate
The coronary guidewires segment shall dominate the global guidewires market. Rising incidences of coronary diseases are anticipated to steer the market forward. These guidewires are easy to navigate across blood vessels in order to reach a lesion or vessel segment.
It acts as a guide for larger catheters which facilitates easy delivery to the treatment site. The coronary guidewires are projected to capture two-fifth of the overall guidewires market, expanding at a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period.
The urology guidewires segment is set to expand the highest, with a CAGR of 7.0% during the forecast period. This is attributed to the increasing prevalence of chronic kidney dysfunctions and the use of dialysis catheters which is anticipated to drive the urology guidewires segment’s growth. Moreover, urology guidewires offer an atraumatic hydrophilic tip, which facilitates negotiating tight areas. Urology guidewires are anticipated to account for at least 15% of the global guidewire market share.
North America Reigns Supreme, Asia-Pacific Poised to Emerge as Lucrative Market
North America is poised to remain the leader in the global guidewires market. High prevalence of cardiovascular and urological diseases, combined with sophisticated healthcare infrastructure and the presence of several guidewire manufacturers are attributed as key growth drivers. A market share of almost two-fifth is anticipated for the North American guidewires market, expanding by one-and-a-half times during the forecast period.
Asia-Pacific is foreseen to emerge as the fastest-growing market, registering a CAGR of 7.2% throughout the forecast period. Expansion of businesses in emerging countries motivated by rising incidences of health problems shall augment the growth of the Asia-Pacific guidewires market.
These emerging countries have witnessed an increase in the adoption of high-quality guidewire brands imported from developed regions. Economic growth and favorable government policies have facilitated business operations by key market players in the region.
Product Development, Patient Comfort to Motivate Market Players
The global guidewires market is fragmented, with the top four players accounting for more than half of the market.
These players are :
Abbott Technologies, Terumo Medical Corporation, Integer Holdings Corporation, and Boston Scientific Corporation.
These players concentrate on expanding their product portfolio by developing guidewires for various therapeutic applications and providing improved patient comfort in the form of lubricous coating.
Abbott Technologies leads in the global guidewires market. The company focuses on new product developments. One of its products is the Hi-Torque Command 18 018 guidewire. This guidewire has a hybrid design that combines the durability of nitinol and the push, torque, and support of stainless steel. Another product, titled PressurewireTM X assesses hemodynamics using either FFR fractional flow reserve or Resting Full Cycle Ratio (RFR) measurements.
Terumo Interventional Systems, another market player, offers hydrophilic and novel hybrid guidewires in nitinol core for coronary and vascular interventional procedures. Its products include the Long Taper GLIDEWIRE, the J-tip GLIDEWIRE, and GLIDEWIRE TORQUETM Device. These glidewires provide unmatched lubricity and lubricity retention. This ensures consistency throughout the entire operation.
An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs
COVID-19 Market Insights:
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the entire world to a stalemate. Several international businesses have come to a stand-still, with production and manufacturing capacities becoming limited or ceasing. This cessation of business is anticipated to have recessionary impacts on the world economic in the coming days. Supply-chains have become disrupted, owing to limited availability of transport. As a precautionary measure, employees have been encouraged to work from home, thus limiting output of key industries.
Until now, over 1.5 million people have been infected by the COVID-19 virus, with over one-fifth of the population succumbing to the disease. Particularly vulnerable patients are those with pre-existing chronic conditions such as cancer, heart disease, renal failure and diabetes.
Naturally, these patients require top priority care as the COVID-19 infection can create multiple complications in their bodies. Realizing this, the leading guidewire manufacturing companies have directed a major chunk of their research and funds in finding solutions for combating the coronavirus.
Abbott Laboratories, for instance, has received FDA approval for the fastest available molecular point-of-care test for the detection of COVID-19, delivering positive results in as little as five minutes. The company is ramping up its production of its ID NOW testing boxes, delivering 50,000 units on a daily basis.
Also, Terumo International has concluded that its production capacity has not been hindered due to procurement difficulties of components and raw materials, which includes guidewires. However, strict countermeasures such as restriction of movement between business locations, staggering work shift timings and work from home have been implemented.
To conclude, while guidewires production may be impacted by the pandemic, manufacturers are not poised to experience too many supply chain disruptions as they are constantly engaged in production and eradication measures.
