Suprapubic Catheter Market Insights
Suprapubic catheters are used in a wide range of surgical applications including urinary tract infections (UTIs), bladder stones, bladder cancer, and bypass track by urine. Furthermore, suprapubic catheterization is commonly used for postoperative bladder drainage after gynecologic procedures. Suprapubic catheters are also used for bladder drainage to manage short-term voiding dysfunction after pelvic surgery.
The global suprapubic catheter market was valued at US$ 11,265.4 million in 2017 and is expected to witness a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period (2018 – 2026).

Increasing product launches is expected to drive growth of the suprapubic catheter market
New product launches to normalize the urine flow in medical conditions and surgeries such as kidney stones and gynecologic procedures are expected to drive the suprapubic catheter market growth. For instance, in September 2016, CompactCath launched its intermittent urinary catheter to address the issues that patients have while self-catheterizing on daily routines. Furthermore, in 2014, CompactCath received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearance for the intermittent urinary catheter.
Moreover, in March 2018, Mayo Clinic completed clinical study for silver-impregnated suprapubic catheters (SPC) in urogynecology. The study was conducted to show a statistical significant decrease in urinary tract infection (UTI) rate among the individuals with a silver-alloy suprapubic catheter compared to the standard silver-alloy catheter.
However, complications associated with suprapubic catheters such as small bowel obstruction and bowel perforation during placement and exchange of catheter may hamper suprapubic catheters market size. Moreover, similar to Foley catheters, suprapubic catheters have mechanical complications such as infections, bladder spasms, obstruction, catheter encrustations, and retained catheters.
Suprapubic Catheter Market- Regional Analysis
Regional segmentation of the global suprapubic catheter market comprises North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.
North America suprapubic catheter market is expected to account for the largest market share over the forecast period, owing to presence of key players such as Becton, Dickinson and Company, Bard Medical, Cook Medical, and Teleflex Incorporated. For instance, in February 2017, Cook Medical introduced Universa Malecot Drainage Catheter Suprapubic Set, a new set for percutaneous urinary drainage including introductory sets for initial catheter placement and suprapubic sets for suprapubic drainage.
Asia Pacific region is also expected to show significant growth rate in the suprapubic catheter market, owing to increasing prevalence of kidney stones in this region. For instance, in February 2018, the National Center for Biotechnology Information stated that around 12% of population in India are expected to have urinary stones.

Suprapubic Catheter Market - Competitive Landscape
Key players operating in the suprapubic catheter market include Amecath, Becton, Dickinson and Company, B. Braun Melsungen AG, Cook Medical, Teleflex Incorporated, Fortune Medical Instrument Corp, Degania Silicone Ltd., Bard Medical, Urovision GmbH, UroTech Inc., and UroMed.
Suprapubic catheter is a hollow flexible tube intended to create a passage between the urinary bladder and skin to drain urine from the bladder of the individual suffering from obstruction of normal urinary flow. Swelling of the prostate, traumatic disruption of urethra, congenital defects of the urinary tract, or by obstructions of kidney stones passed into the urethra can block the normal urinary flow. Suprapubic catheter has fewer chances of causing infection to individuals.
Increasing prevalence of kidney disorders such as kidney stone (Urolithiasis) is expected to drive the suprapubic catheter market growth. When the ureter gets blocked due to the presence of kidney stone, suprapubic catheters are used to create passage for urine flow. For instance, in November 2018, National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) published the study data for the prevalence of kidney stone in the U.S. According to NHANES, for 2013–2014 NHANES cycle, the prevalence of kidney stone in the U.S. was 10.1%. Moreover, NHANES also stated that the prevalence of kidney stones (KSs) was the highest in males older than 60 years (17.8%), followed by males 40–59 years old (12.6%). The study also showed that the prevalence of kidney stone in males was stable while it was increasing in females.
According to Residential Communications Network (RCN) (2012) and the European Association of Urology Nurses (2012), the suprapubic catheters are more advantageous than urethral catheterization, as they do not have the risk of urethral trauma, necrosis or catheter-induced urethritis and urethral strictures as well as they provide comfort to the patients who are on wheelchair as the catheter is not situated between their legs. Moreover, micturition is still possible if urethra is not surgically closed or obstructed.
