BCC Research’s goal in conducting this study was to determine the present status of the worldwide catheter market and to evaluate its potential over the 5-year period from 2009 to 2014. An assessment of the worldwide catheter market was performed while considering all of its important segments, such as cardiovascular, urological, neurovascular, intravenous, and specialty catheters. 
Catheterization procedures have steadily increased as interventional and less-invasive procedures have become more popular. Catheters are vital to the completion of many procedures, and some procedures or interventions, particularly in cardiovascular surgery and neurosurgery, could not be done without the use of catheters. In conducting this study, BCC was interested in determining the areas of catheter applications poised for growth and the reasons for their growth. New products and their future impact on the market were also assessed.
BCC studied the current catheter market, anticipated market trends, and then projected total and sectional market revenues through 2014. The report includes technological descriptions, issues, applications, market factors, and market metrics.
The scope of this study encompasses the five major application segments of the catheter market. BCC Research analyzes each type of catheter segment, determines its current market status, examines its impact on future markets, and presents growth forecasts over the next 5 years. Catheter material analysis, regulatory issues, and the latest technological trends are also covered. Other influential factors such as patents and company profiles are discussed.
Both primary and secondary research methodologies were used in this study.
BCC Research presents an analysis of each segment of the catheters industry depending on its application, using a base year of 2008. Estimated values used are based on manufacturers’ net revenues.
This study will be of interest to catheter and device manufacturers, catheter material manufacturers, and venture capitalists and financial institutions involved in the healthcare industry.
Major sources of primary research information include information from industry personnel. Secondary research sources include industry association and company press releases, company Web sites, financial and trade information, and government sources.
