Guidewires Market Worth USD 5.9 Bn by 2030 – Exclusive Report by FMI

According to FMI, the worldwide guidewires market demand is anticipated to reach US$ 3.3 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow significantly over 6.0% between 2020 and 2030. According to a recent analysis by consulting company Future Market Insights, the market for guidewires is expected to reach US $6.0 Bn by 2030. The manufacture of guidewires has increased recently as a result of the increased end-user demand for treating various ailments. Interventional radiology approaches for image-guided illness detection and treatment have become more widely used as a result of developments in guidewire tip technologies. Patient recovery results have been markedly improved by interventional radiology. This is due to the procedure’s lower risk, shorter recovery period, and less pain compared to open surgery. Vascular, gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, and pulmonary interventions can all benefit greatly from interventional radiology.

As the incidences of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as cancer, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases continue to increase, healthcare providers are making concerted efforts to reduce their prevalence by providing sophisticated medical care. Therefore, adoption of technologically enhanced guidewires has acquired immense importance.

Over the years, minimally invasive surgeries have become highly popular, due to the need to reduce trauma. On the back of this, guidewires adoption has boomed. Guidewire engineering has transitioned towards advanced lesions such as chronic total occlusions (CTO) which are more adept at improving cardiac anomalies by improving ischemia and improve left ventricular function. Therefore, market players are introducing innovative products to cater to CTO lesions.

A minor blip is anticipated for the guidewires market from the coronavirus pandemic. Due to the imposition of lockdowns, many manufacturers are operating at reduced capacities, limiting daily output of guidewires. This has generated a significant disequilibrium in the demand-supply dynamics. This mismatch is anticipated to prevail until the last quarter of 2020 until production resumes at full capacity.

Key Takeaways from the Guidewires Market Study:

  • The global guidewires market shall expand at a rate of 6.0% in 2020, driven by increased adoption of guidewires for minimally invasive coronary heart diseases
  • By application, coronary and peripheral guidewires shall collectively capture over 60% of the market share during the forecast period
  • Stainless steel guidewires are the most extensively used due to their high ductility, support and torque, making it the highest revenue generator by material type
  • North America remains the most lucrative guidewires market, generating nearly 2/5th of the total revenue in the market

Hand Sanitizer Market: Key Trends

  • According to the World Health Organization, seven out of ten patients succumb to non-communicable diseases, especially in the low and middle income nations. This has increased the need for surgical procedures for NCDs, pushing up guidewire usage
  • Interventional guidewires are experiencing increased adoption in minimally invasive surgical procedures as they reduce trauma and pain from surgical incisions.
  • Majority of the guidewires demand is stimulated from the Asia-Pacific, owing to high fatalities due to diseases like cancer, diabetes, cardiac arrests and asthma.

Hand Sanitizer Market: Region-wise Analysis

  • North America shall continue generating lucrative opportunities. High adoption rate of interventional and diagnostic guidewires for several diseases is a major growth accelerator
  • The United States has exhibited significant consistency in showing notable annual growth rates, set to expand at a rate of more than 5% in 2020
  • Asia-Pacific is emerging as the fastest growing guidewires market. A large proportion of diabetic population in India and China aged between 20 and 79 is stimulating demand for surgical procedures and guidewires in the region
  • The Japanese guidewires market demonstrates exponential growth possibilities, attributed to the presence of a large geriatric population pool afflicted with chronic conditions

Guidewires Market: Competitive Landscape

The global guidewires market is characterized by the presence of prominent regional as well as global vendors, making it highly competitive in nature. Principal growth strategies include promotion of inorganic growth, diversification of product portfolios through new product launches, optimization of production costs, technological enhancements and collaboration with other players to broaden geographical presence.

On the collaboration front, Boston Scientific partnered with the Mayo Clinic to set in motion the development of minimally-invasive technologies for urology, neuromodulation, endoscopy, heart rhythm management and interventional cardiology in 2019.

For product launches, Cardiovascular Systems Inc., doled out its Viper Wire Advance Coronary Guidewire which received clearance from the US FDA in October 2019. Earlier in May of the same year, Medtronic unveiled its Telescope Guide Extension Catheter to provide additional backup support and access to distal lesions.
