 Thoracic Catheters Market to grow by USD 189.62 million between 2024-2028

According to a research report “ Thoracic Catheters Market” by Application (Pleural effusion, Pneumothorax, Others) Product (Accessories, Catheters) Geography (North America, Europe, Asia, Rest of World (ROW))- Global Forecast to 2028 published by Technavio, the market size is estimated to grow by USD 189.62 million at a CAGR of  7.05% during the forecast period. In the thoracic catheter market, there is a significant demand for devices used in the treatment of thoracic disorders such as pneumothorax and pleural effusion. Causes of pneumothorax include smoking, lung diseases like asthma and COPD, and spontaneous reasons. Pleural effusion, on the other hand, is often linked to cirrhosis, heart failure, and various cancers. Thoracic catheters play a crucial role in managing these conditions by draining excess air or fluids from the pleural cavity, thereby improving patient outcomes..

By Application, the Pleural effusion segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024.

In the thoracic catheters market, accessories play a crucial role in enhancing the functionality of medical devices. These accessories, including catheter valves, stabilization devices, clamps, adapters, and tubing connectors, are high-volume commodities with frequent replacement needs. Hospitals and Group Purchasing Organizations (GPOs) procure these accessories in bulk as part of their cost-reduction strategies. Manufacturers must secure de novo clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for these accessories. Catheter valves, specifically, are essential components that fit the proximal end of indwelling catheters, facilitating fluid drainage from the pleural cavity. Stabilization devices mitigate discomfort caused by catheter movement.

By Product, Accessories  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024.

In the thoracic catheters market, there is a significant demand for medical devices used in managing pleural effusion, a condition characterized by excess fluid accumulation between the pleural surfaces outside the lungs. Causes include cancer, pulmonary embolism, infections, and heart failure. Symptoms such as chest pain, cough, fever, and breathing difficulties necessitate effective treatment. Two types of pleural effusion exist: transudative, caused by fluid leakage, and exudative, resulting from blocked vessels or inflammation. Thoracic catheters play a crucial role in draining excess fluid, improving patient comfort and lung function.

North America is forecasted to hold the largest market size by region in 2024.

The North American thoracic catheters market, spearheaded by the US, experienced significant growth in 2023. Factors such as extensive healthcare insurance coverage, increasing R&D expenditure, and high adoption of technologically advanced products contributed to this expansion. Additionally, the presence of a robust medical infrastructure, an aging population, and rising incidences of pneumothorax and pleural effusion further fueled market growth. The popularity of minimally invasive surgeries and a well-defined regulatory framework also bolstered market expansion in the US. Furthermore, the development and commercialization of thoracic catheters and favorable reimbursement policies provided additional impetus to the market's growth trajectory.

Research Analysis Overview

The Thoracic Catheters Market has experienced a significant surge in demand due to the increasing number of MI procedures and urgent care center admissions. Robotic surgery has become a preferred option for thoracic procedures, reducing the morbidity rate associated with open surgeries. Thoracic catheters play a crucial role in thoracic drainage systems, particularly in managing conditions such as spontaneous pneumothorax and pleural effusions. These catheters are available in various materials, including silicone and polyvinyl chloride, ensuring patient comfort and safety. Self-catheterization has gained popularity, allowing for the convenient and efficient management of fluids, medications, and pleural pressure. Thoracic catheters are essential in maintaining chest wall stability and lung function by managing the pleural space and preventing gas accumulation. The risk of infection is a concern in thoracic catheter use, and single-use catheters have become the preferred choice to mitigate this risk. Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and respiratory diseases are common comorbidities in patients undergoing thoracic procedures, making the use of thoracic catheters an essential component in patient care.

Market Research Overview

The Thoracic Catheters Market encompasses a range of medical devices used for thoracic drainage in various procedures, including tube thoracostomy and pleural drainage. These catheters are essential in managing conditions such as spontaneous pneumothorax, pleural effusions, and empyema disorders. The market includes accessories like adapters, fixing clamps, and stabilization devices, ensuring proper installation and functionality. Portfolio expansion and product innovation are key trends in the market, with companies focusing on reprocessing devices to reduce installation costs. Thoracic catheters are integral to minimally invasive operations like robotic surgery, where they help mitigate infection risks and facilitate mechanical ventilation during MI procedures and open surgeries. Materials like silicone and polyvinyl chloride are commonly used in manufacturing thoracic catheters. Self-catheterization and single-use catheters are gaining popularity due to their convenience and cost-effectiveness. The market is witnessing a surge in demand due to the rise in CVDs and respiratory diseases, as well as patient awareness and the increasing use of 3D visualization in surgical support. However, the market also faces challenges such as decline in demand due to symptoms of RNA viruses like coronavirus and the morbidity rate associated with MI procedures and acute lung diseases. Healthcare personnel must ensure proper use and maintenance of thoracic catheters to minimize risks and optimize patient outcomes.
