A urinary catheter is a hollow, partially flexible tube that collects urine from the bladder and leads to a drainage bag. Urinary catheters come in many sizes and types. Catheters are made from rubber and non-rubber materials such as silicone. It is important to use the correct type of catheter and a non-rubber catheter is used if one is allergic  to latex. A urinary catheter is used when an individual is having problems urinating naturally. It allows the individual or patient to urinate and drain while having an obstruction in the tube that carries urine out of the bladder (urethra). The catheter may be removed after a few minutes, hours, or days. It may also be needed for long-term. Intermittent catheters, indwelling (foley) catheters, and external catheters are the three main types of catheters. Intermittent catheters are temporarily inserted into the bladder and removed when the bladder is empty. Indwelling (Foley) catheters remain in place for many days or weeks.

The global urinary catheters market is estimated to be valued at US$ 5,293.6 million in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period (2022-2030).

Global Urinary 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 can affect 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 are facing problems with the transportation of drugs from one place to another.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the global urinary catheters market. For instance, in May 2022, according to the data published in Antimicrobial Stewardship & Healthcare Epidemiology, catheter-related infections had increased during COVID-19 in an 11-hospital system in New York City. A disproportionate number of central-line infections occurred in larger hospitals. Patients with COVID-19 had shorter times for catheter insertion to infection and a higher incidence of infections was noted in the larger centers.

Global Urinary Catheters Market: Key Developments

Increasing adoption of inorganic growth strategies, such as product launches by key market players is expected to drive the global urinary catheters market growth. For instance, in March 2022, Sonoma Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a pharmaceutical company, announced that it had launched Microdox, a urinary tract infection catheter and bladder rinse in New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa. Microdox is a super-oxidized solution technology intended to treat and prevent infections in the urinary tract and bladder.

Global Urinary Catheters Market: Restraint

Increasing number of product recalls by regulatory authorities such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is expected to hinder the market growth. For instance, in April 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recalled a class II device silicone foley catheter with a temperature sensor, which was manufactured by Covidien, a subsidiary of Medtronic. The device was recalled because the catheter failed to meet the established calibrated temperature sensing tolerance and correctly measure patient body temperatures that lead to an incorrect diagnosis and insufficient treatment.

Global Urinary Catheters Market - Key Players

Major players operating in the global urinary catheters market include B. Braun SE, Coloplast Group, BD, Cathetrix, Hollister Incorporated, Boston Scientific Corporation, Medtronic, Bactiguard AB, Amecath, Urocare Products, Inc., Rocamed, Cook, Ribbel International Limited, Otsuka Pharmaceutical Factory, Inc., Sonoma Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Affera, Inc., HR Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Potrero Medical, Ingenion Medical, and The Flume Catheter Company Ltd.

A urinary catheter is a partially flexible and hollow tube that collects urine from the bladder and leads to a drainage bag. Silicone, rubber, and poly vinyl chloride (PVC) are materials used to manufacture urinary catheters. Indwelling catheters, external catheters, and intermittent catheters (short-term catheters) are the three main types of urinary catheters. One-time-use catheters and reusable catheters are also available. It is important to routinely clean catheters as indwelling urinary catheters may lead to healthcare-associated Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs). Urinary catheters are used at the time of urinary incontinence and retention, which can occur due to kidney stones, blood clots in urine, and enlargement of the prostate gland, spinal cord injury, dementia, etc. Urinary catheters are the leading cause of Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs), hence it is important to clean catheters to prevent infections. Urethra or bladder injuries, bladder stones, bladder spasms, and pain are the most common side effects associated with urinary catheters.

 Market Dynamics

Increasing adoption of organic growth strategies such as product launches by the key market players is expected to drive the global urinary catheters market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in April 2020, Bactiguard AB, a medical technology company, announced that it had launched a BIP Foley TempSensor, a urinary catheter. It will provide continuous temperature monitoring for patients in intensive care, surgery, and other conditions where continuous monitoring is important, and it also prevents infection.
