Rising Cardiovascular Diseases Makes Coronary Guidewires Leading Product Segment

Product-wise, the main segments of the global guidewires market are coronary guidewires, peripheral guidewires, neurovascular guidewires, urology guidewires, radiology guidewires, gastroenterology guidewires, and other guidewires (otolaryngology and oncology). Among them, the segment of coronary guidewires account for maximum share in the market because of the alarming increase in instances of cardiovascular diseases, worldwide. Their demand is particularly high in developed countries where the interventional procedures such as percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) and percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) is comparatively higher. Besides, unveiling of better products from time to time is also boosting their uptake in the market.

The peripheral guidewires form the second-most lucrative product segment because of the rising prevalence of peripheral artery diseases (PAD) resulting from changing lifestyles leading to high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. Vis-à-vis growth rate, the urology guidewires will likely register a relatively higher CAGR on the back of new product launches every now and then, rising adoption of guidewires in interventional urology procedures, and growing patient pool for minimally invasive procedures.

High Occurrence of Lifestyle-related Diseases Catapults North America Market to Fore

From a geographical perspective, North America currently holds a dominant share in the global guidewires market. The increasing instances of lifestyle-related diseases, increasing adoption of more sophisticated guidewires, soaring popularity of minimally invasive interventional procedures, and presence of numerous key players in the region have served to fillip the market. The region is expected to retain its dominant position in the near future too by rising at a CAGR of 5.8% in the forecast period.

Europe trails North America, in terms of size, in the global guidewires market. The market in the region has been boosted primarily by a raft of product launches on account of the foray of foreign multinational players, favorable government policies, and a rising geriatric population.  By registering a CAGR of 6.0% from 2017 to 2025, the Europe market is expected to attain a value of US$662.1 by 2025.

In terms of growth rate, however, Asia Pacific is expected to outshine all other regions in the global guidewires market because of the increasing incidence of cardiovascular diseases, increasing healthcare expenditure in developing nations, and rising demand for affordable minimally invasive interventional procedures. Also majorly fuelling the market in the region is the rising number of local manufacturers of guidewires providing innovative products at lower costs. The region is expected to clock a CAGR of 7.0% from 2017 to 2025.

Abbott, Terumo Medical Corporation, Integer Holdings Corporation, ASAHI INTECC CO., LTD., Olympus Corporation, Stryker, Cardinal Health, Inc., CONMED Corporation, Cook, Merit Medical Systems, Inc., Boston Scientific Corporation, and Medtronic are to name a few key players in the global guidewires market.

Advances in Materials and Design to Complement Technological Advancements in Guidewires Market

Intervention procedures using guidewires have risen in number as well as complexity. Most notably, the guidewires market has some remarkable design and material advances to meet the need for patient populations in endovascular treatment. Growing demand for minimally invasive interventional procedures in cardiovascular diseases is a key trend propelling the need for better design and materials to improve the outcomes. The advent of an array of computer models is a key aspect for the next-gen guidewires. These models have proved to be immensely helpful for simulating best designs by manufacturers in the guidewires market. Numerous new modelling techniques have attracted the attention of manufacturers. Research into understanding the interaction between the interventional instruments and the vascular wall has played a key role in expanding the canvas for innovation in the guidewires market. Some of the interesting techniques include finite-element method (FEM) and mass-spring model (MSM).

Specialists engaged in endovascular interventions continue to face some unique challenges. This has echoed a longstanding unmet need for novel materials and techniques in the guidewires market. Most specialists would prefer iterative techniques, but these are prone to showing results after a long time. Emerging skills in employing phantoms in simulating experiments will better the chances of new guidewires showing results in real clinical environments. The advent of new technologies such as software for preintervention planning is a key trend in making better designs of guidewires market. Advances made in the chemistries of alloys are expanding the scope of innovations in the market. The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted the growth dynamics of the medical industry in unimaginable ways. Players in the market are also keen on maintaining their profitability in the face of dwindling research budgets in recent months. Further, disruption in international trade has also changed the growth contors of the guidewires market in new ways.
