India Catheters Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe, and the World Health Organization declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.
COVID-19 affected the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting the production and demand of drugs, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to nationwide lockdowns, several countries such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E., Egypt, and others faced problems regarding transportation of drugs from one place to another.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic had a positive impact on the India catheters market owing to the increase in hospitalizations caused due to the COVID-19 as well as chronic diseases. As governments and healthcare institutions were found to increase efficient medical treatment to treat COVID-19 patients, the usage of catheters witnessed tremendous demand in hospitals and emergency clinics. Patients with suspected or confirmed diagnoses of COVID-19 were being treated with the help of catheters, and hence, the demand for these products remained huge throughout the pandemic. Moreover, product launches amid the pandemic were also anticipated to have a positive impact on the market’s growth. For instance, on January 06, 2023, according to an article published in the journal of BioMed Central Infectious Diseases, the rates of the following nosocomial infections were compared at pre- and post-pandemic period: ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP), central line associated blood stream infection (CLABSI), catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) and incidence of multiple drug resistance (MDR) pathogens. This study investigated the CLABSI and CAUTI, prevalence and admission during the covid-19 increases.

India Catheters Market: Restraints
Risk of catheter-associated infections
Risk of catheter-associated infections such as urinary tract infection (UTI) involving any part of the urinary system, including urethra, bladder, ureters, and kidney is expected to hinder the market growth over the forecast period. So, catheters should only be used for appropriate indications and should be removed as soon as they are no longer needed. For instance, in October 2020, according to the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC), UTIs are the most common type of healthcare-associated infection reported to the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN). Among UTIs acquired in the hospital, approximately 75% are associated with a urinary catheter, which is a tube inserted into the bladder through the urethra to drain urine. Between 15-25% of hospitalized patients receive urinary catheters during their hospital stay. The most important risk factor for developing a catheter-associated UTI (CAUTI) is prolonged use of the urinary catheter.
