Guidewires Market Demand to Cross USD 1.2 Billion by 2026: Global Market Insights, Inc.

Some of the major guidewires market players include Boston Scientific Corporation, Medtronic plc, B. Braun Melsungen AG, Cook Group Incorporated and Olympus Corporation, among other players

Global Guidewires Market size worth over $1.2 Billion by 2026

Global Market Insights, Inc. has recently added a new report on the guidewires market which estimates the global market valuation for guidewires will cross US $1.2 billion by 2026. Increasing adoption of minimally invasive surgeries will drive the growth of the market in the coming years. The growing burden of lifestyle disorders will spur the need for development of advance guidewires such as hybrid guidewires. The introduction of novel cost-efficient materials such as nitinol will further boost the market demand, thereby augmenting the guidewires market growth during the analysis period.

Stainless steel material segment accounted for about 22% of the total market share. Stainless steel guidewires are traditional guidewires and are being utilized in a few of the underdeveloped economies due to cost constraints. Stainless steel offers more torque ability and push ability as well as good shape ability. However, due to its less-flexible characteristics, the adoption of nitinol guidewires has seen a spike in the last few years.

Coated guidewires market is expected to reach a high CAGR of 5% through 2026. Guidewires are being coated with a polymer such as polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) or silicone. This helps in increasing the lubricity and thus can be easily facilitated in coronary and urological procedures.

Coated segment is further bifurcated into hydrophilic coating, anti-thrombogenic/heparin coating, hydrophobic coating, silicone coating, and tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) coating. Anti-thrombogenic/heparin coating is expected to register a moderate growth rate during the study period due to its efficiency in preventing the risk of blood clotting in varied applications.

Peripheral guidewires accounted for about 29% of the total market in 2019. Peripheral guidewires are utilized in assisting the placement of catheters in small vessel anatomy. Few of the peripheral guidewires being utilized across the healthcare settings include carnelian support (Biotronik), Victory Guidewires (Boston Scientific) and ASAHI Gladius, ASAHI Halberd, and Gaia PV peripheral guide wires (Asahi Intecc Co., Ltd.)

Research laboratories is expected to show a reasonable growth of 5% during 2020 to 2026. The rising incidence of target diseases coupled with the increasing population has demanded more research related to guidewires, for instance, the unexplored potential of guidewires in varied applications and novel materials specific to surgical and diagnostic procedures, among others. Thus, owing to the aforementioned factors, it is expected to contribute to the market growth.
