According to a recent study by Persistence Market Research, the global indwelling catheters market is anticipated to witness high growth at 6.4% CAGR and be valued at over US$ 13.5 Bn by 2031.

Demand for indwelling catheters is surging with increasing geriatric population. With increasing age, the immune system becomes weak and people become more prone to illnesses and suffer from different diseases such as cancer and kidney diseases.

According to Population Reference Bureau data of 2019, Japan, Italy, Greece, Portugal, and Germany are the top five countries with 28.2%, 22.8%, 21.8%, 21.8%, and 21.4%, respectively, of population over 65 years of age.

With ever-increasing number of hospitals and surgeries, sales of indwelling catheters are also increasing in parallel. This is mainly because during or post-surgical procedures, there is the need to drain urine and keep the bladder empty.

Also, demand for indwelling catheter increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is primarily due to the increased number of patients admitted in hospitals seeking treatment for COVID-19 and its associated diseases. Thus, there was a positive impact of COVID-19 on the demand for indwelling catheters.
