This market research report identifies vendors such as Abbott Laboratories, Boston Scientific, Cordis, Cook Medical, Medtronic, and Terumo as the key players in the global vascular guidewires market. This research report also presents market segmentations based on product type (coronary guidewires and peripheral guidewires), end-users (hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers), and geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Vascular guidewires industry overview

According to the vascular guidewires market forecast, this market will grow steadily and post a moderate CAGR of around 6% by 2020. One of the major factors positively affecting this market’s growth will be the growing demand for minimally invasive (MI) procedures. The rising demand for MI procedures will be due to benefits such as faster recovery time, less pain, fewer post-surgery infections, reduced hospital stays, reduced incision marks, bleeding control, minimal complications, and heightened accuracy.

Advances in surgical techniques and improvements in equipment handling results help in enhancing surgical precision with a 3D view of the patient; thus, allowing manipulation of small surgical tools for the placement of stents in the individual's body. Also, the usage of guidewires made of materials that provide better flexibility, support, and tracking of the stent during the procedure will lead to the accurate placement of stents as they allow distal device delivery and catheter exchange without the loss of distal wire position.

Vascular guidewires market overview based on regions

During 2015, the Americas dominated the market, accounting for approximately 48% of the total market share. The adoption of technologically advanced interventional vascular devices will contribute to the growth of the market. The vendors will invest in research and development of services with advanced medical technologies that will help improve patient outcomes during surgeries, which, in turn, will lead to the progression of the market during the forecast period.

Vascular guidewires market growth analysis: Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market appears fragmented due to the presence of several vendors consisting of both regional and local players who compete to introduce low-cost vascular guidewires. Vendors are investing in resources for the development of products with advanced features such as design, material, and simple stent delivery systems. Increasing technological innovations and product extensions will help maintain the level of competition during the four-year period.
