Global Foley Catheters Market - Snapshot

A Foley catheter is a soft, flexible urinary catheter that is used in urological diseases to help ease urination in patients with conditions such as prostate hypertrophy, narrowing of the urethra, nerve-related bladder dysfunction, and prostate cancer. It is also known as an indwelling catheter, which is introduced into the bladder through the urethra in order to drain urine. It includes a balloon that holds the catheter in the bladder at one end. The urine is drained into a collection bag by using a catheter tube. Foley catheters can be utilized for prolonged periods; for weeks or even a month. Foley catheters are available in various sizes and balloon capacities. Surge in the geriatric patient pool suffering from urinary diseases is expected to boost the demand for Foley catheters in the next few years. The global Foley catheters market was valued at US$ 1.02 Bn in 2018. It is projected to expand at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2019 to 2027.
