This market research study identifies Boston Scientific, Terumo Medical, Cook Medical, Olympus America, and C. R. Bard as the leading players in the global urology guidewires market. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by product (steel-based urology guidewires and nitinol-based urology guidewires), by end-user (hospitals and ASCs), and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Global urology guidewires market forecast

According to urology guidewires industry analysis, the global urology guidewires market will grow at a CAGR of close to 7% during the forecast period. The growing demand for minimally invasive (MI) procedures and the surgical management of urinary stones is one of the key factors that will drive the urology guidewires market growth in the coming years. The number of urological surgeries has increased due to the growing preference for MI surgeries over open surgical methods.

Various MI procedures performed to treat urological disorders include prostatic stenting, holmium laser enucleation of the prostate (HoLEP), high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU), and transurethral electroporation of the prostate (TUVP). The emergence of MI procedures such as interstitial laser coagulation (ILC), transurethral needle ablation (TUNA), photoselective vaporization (PVP), transurethral microwave thermotherapy (TUMT), and catheterization will also increase the number of urological procedures in various healthcare units. This, in turn, will drive the need for urology guidewires during the estimated period to perform these urological procedures.

The steel-based urology guidewires segment contributed to the maximum market shares of the ureteral guidewires market during 2016.

The adoption of stainless steel urology guidewires will continue to increase during the forecasted period because of their wide accessibility and shaft stiffness.
