Report Overview

The global catheter introducer sheaths market size was valued at USD 1.09 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.4% from 2023 to 2030. Catheter introducer sheaths are used for the introduction of interventional devices into the patient’s vascular system. The growth is attributed to the increasing incidences of cardiovascular disease, rising adoption of minimally invasive procedures, and increasing investment by private and public bodies for technological advancements in the healthcare sector.

U.S. catheter introducer sheaths market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The increasing prevalence of cardiovascular disease is driving the demand for cost-effective catheter introducer sheaths. According to WHO, cardiovascular diseases cause 17.9 million deaths every year across the globe. In addition, 4 out of 5 cardiovascular disease deaths are caused due to strokes and heart attacks, and around 30% of these deaths occur in the population under 70 years of age. Similarly, according to a study conducted by the CDC, around 695,000 deaths were caused by heath disease in 2021, and every 1 in 20 adults aged 20 years or above have coronary artery disease in the U.S. The wide application of catheters in diagnosing coronary disease, chest pain, and biopsy, among others, drives the demand for catheter introducer sheaths.

The COVID-19 pandemic significantly disrupted the catheter introducer sheaths industry. Supply chain disruptions reduced elective procedures, and healthcare resource reallocation led to a temporary decline in demand. For instance, in 2020 the Department of Health decided to cancel non-urgent elective surgeries as hospitals ran out of space in Australia. The governments in the U.S., Chile, and Portugal took similar actions. However, the market gradually recovered as healthcare systems adapted, emphasizing infection control and safety measures, driving the demand for catheter introducer sheaths to aid minimally invasive procedures.

Product Insights

Based on products, the industry is segmented into integrated introducer sheaths and separable introducer sheaths. The integrated introducer sheaths dominated the market with a market share of 59.92% in 2022 and is anticipated to exhibit fastest growth at a CAGR of 7.7% over the forecast period. The growth is attributed to the seamless design of the sheaths for reduced procedural complexity, enhanced workflow efficiency, and minimizing the risk of air embolism during catheter insertion is driving the demand. Additionally, integrated sheaths offer improved infection control and patient comfort, aligning with the heightened focus on safety and outcomes in healthcare settings post-COVID-19.

Moreover, the shift towards minimally invasive procedures and advancements in interventional techniques is anticipated to drive growth over the forecast period. Key players investing in research and development to introduce innovative integrated introducer sheaths further contributing to the market growth. For instance, in September 2021, BIOTRONIK announced the expansion of its Fortress reinforced introducer sheath product line in the U.S. and countries accepting CE mark approval.

End-Use Insights

Based on end-use, the market is segmented into ambulatory surgical centers, hospitals, and others. The hospitals segment helps the largest market share of 59.10% of the market share in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR of 7.8% over the forecast period. The growth is attributed to the growing need for continuous supervision and the rising incidence of cardiovascular disorders.
