Market Overview

The Medical Tubing Market is Expected to witness a CAGR of 8.5% during the study period, 2022-2027.

In recent times, countries have faced a huge threat of COVID-19. The medical tubing market growth was significantly impacted by COVID-19 owing to supply chain disruptions and an increase in hospital admissions. The article “Critical Supply Shortages — The Need for Ventilators and Personal Protective Equipment during the Covid-19 Pandemic,” published in April 2020, indicated that there was an increase in demand for ventilators as the complications associated with COVID-19 were surging and leading to mortality. Therefore, this increase in ventilator demand also surged the demand for ventilator tubing, which has driven the market growth. However, the production of medical tubes was severely impacted due to COVID-19-induced lockdown, labor shortage, decrease in the production of raw materials such as plastics and rubbers, the surge in prices of raw materials, and others that were a burden on the market growth.

The factors propelling the studied market growth are the growing burden of chronic diseases and the geriatric population, rising demand for minimally invasive medical procedures, and increasing demand for disposable tube-based medical devices. In addition, new product launches and strategic initiatives taken by the key market players will further drive the market growth.

As per the article “Microelectronic catheter for minimally invasive surgery of the future,” published in January 2022, catheters are significantly important for minimally invasive surgery due to easily procedures for the removal of blood clots, the insertion of implants, or the targeted administration of drugs, and are intended to be particularly gentle for patients. Such advantages of catheters increase their demand and are expected to increase during the study period, which will boost the studied market.

Additionally, strategic initiatives such as product launches, mergers, and acquisitions, partnerships, and others will also lead to lucrative growth of the market. For instance, in April 2021, BioCardia, Inc. entered into an agreement with one of the leading Japanese biotechnology companies related to BioCardia Helix catheter biotherapeutic delivery product candidates. It is a non-exclusive, worldwide license to BioCardia Helix catheter biotherapeutic delivery product candidates for certain cell types for cardiac indications. Under the terms of the agreement, BioCardia will receive USD 500,000 for biotherapeutic delivery products and support services.

Furthermore, in June 2021, Zeus Industrial Products, Inc. acquired CathX Medical Inc., a medical device contract manufacturer that offers customers a single source for catheter design engineering services, rapid prototyping, manufacturing, and full or sub-assemblies. Such acquisition will expand the product offerings of Zeus and its geographical footprints, which will drive market growth.

Also, in February 2019, Confluent Medical launched the High-Performance Nitinol Tubing Center of Excellence in response to increasing market demand for High-Performance Nitinol Tubing in challenging applications such as Transcatheter Heart Valves, Neurovascular, Electrophysiology, and Interventional Pulmonary. Such centers will support medical device companies that require world-class Nitinol tubing for their designs for long-term implantable applications, thereby driving the market.

Therefore, owing to the aforementioned factors, the studied market is expected to grow significantly during the study period. However, huge investments and time required for product development are expected to hinder the market growth during the study period.

Key Market Trends

Catheters and Cannulas Segment is Expected to Account for the Large Market Share During the Forecast Period

A catheter is a plastic tube that is inserted into an area of the body that already has an opening, such as the bladder or an open wound that need needs assistance in draining. However, a cannula is a small plastic tubing that is inserted into part of the body with the help of a needle that punctures the vein or vessel. The needle is then removed, leaving the cannula in place for easy access to withdraw or inject anything into the vessel.

The growing burden of chronic diseases such as peripheral artery diseases, chronic kidney diseases, and others, the growing geriatric population, increase in product launches, and other strategic initiatives by players in the studied segment will lead to lucrative growth of the market.

For instance, according to the research article “Epidemiology of Peripheral Artery Disease and Polyvascular Disease,” published in June 2021, the prevalence of peripheral artery disease in the United States is estimated to be approximately 7%, affecting 8.5 million adults. Thus, the high burden of PAD is expected to increase the demand for early treatment, impacting the demand for medical tubing.

Additionally, product launches in the segment will contribute significantly to the market growth. For instance, in April 2021, DORC launched the EVA AVETA trocar cannula system, which integrates a push-fit infusion connection and a laser-etched retention feature. This will benefit surgeons and patients through improved flow rates, a smaller working size, and more stable intra-operative intraocular pressure.

Furthermore, in July 2021, Medtronic plc launched Prevail drug-coated balloon (DCB) Catheter in Europe following the CE mark. The Prevail DCB is used during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures to treat narrowed or blocked coronary arteries in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD).

Thus, due to the above-mentioned factors, the studied segment is expected to contribute to the significant growth of the market.
