Market Drivers

Foley catheters are majorly used in urgent care units due to the increasing number of surgeries and longer hospital stays. According to WHO data, 12.0%-16.0% of adults in acute hospitals in the United States use foley catheters. These factors will drive the market for foley catheters during the forecast period. Foley catheter demand is expected to rise due to increasing incidences of BPH and urinary incontinence worldwide. Additionally, the high demand for urinary catheters is because these catheters are used highly in the geriatric population, so there is an increase in the number of nursing home patients, which increases the prevalence of disease rates. Also, obesity in people of Europe and North America is simultaneously growing, so their demand for urinary catheters during the forecast period is increasing.

Market Restraints

It is anticipated that challenges to market expansion will include patients being advised to avoid catheterization. Poor lubrication can cause friction, which can lead to infection and bleeding. UTIs and CAUTIs require extra care. These conditions can lead to non-invasive or even invasive treatment. These drawbacks can restrict the market for urinary bladder catheters.

Market Opportunities

The opening up of new economies due to low barriers has resulted in an increase in market growth. This trend is expected to continue, with market flexibility allowing leading players to enter emerging nations like India, South Korea, and others. Technological advances, such as B. Braun's production facilities in Penang and Zambia, are further driving product innovation and development for the market. Furthermore, internet penetration, rising acceptance of urinary surgical procedures, introduction of new goods and treatments, and increasing per capita healthcare spending will all contribute to the growth rate of the market in the forecast period of 2023 to 2032.

Report Segmentation of the Foley Catheter Market

Product Type Insight

According to product type, there are three main segments in the Foley Catheter global market such as 2-way Foley Catheter (Foley Catheter), 3-way Foley Catheter (Foley Catheter), and 4-way Foley Catheter. Because of its low cost, the 2-way segment led the Foley Catheter market in 2022. Foley Catheters are widely accepted for their ability to provide short-term and long-term catheterization. 3-way Foley Catheters are more lumen-efficient at the time of installation, and because there is less bladder irrigation during urological surgery, they expect a higher CAGR during the forecast period. Four-way Foley must show moderate CAGR during the forecast period because the market growth is slower than other catheter types.

By Material Insight

Based on material type, the market is segmented into three types such as latex, silicon, and other Material. The silicone segment dominated with the largest market share, owing to its rigidity, longer shelf life, and biocompatibility. The latex catheter segment used a larger amount due to its minimal cost and flexibility. On the other hand, new latex products are made of materials such as Teflon, hydrogel, and new soft materials, which may cause infection in patients and eventually restrain the growth of the latex segment.

Application Insight

According to application type, the Foley Catheters global market is divided into surgery, benign prostatic hyperplasia, urinary incontinence, and other applications. The urinary incontinence segment held the largest revenue share of the Foley Catheters market in 2022 because patients with foley catheters have a high incidence of urinary incontinence, and expected to help the growth of the foley catheter market.

End User Insight

The Foley catheter market is expected to grow in the future due to the increased use of Foley catheters in hospitals and specialty clinics. The long-term care facility segment is expected to gain a significant share due to an increasing number of patients with urinary incontinence who require long-term catheterization in-home care centers.
