Micro guide catheters are extremely thin tube-like medical devices used to direct diagnostic and interventional devices to target locations in the vascular system. They provide precise delivery of balloon angioplasty catheters, stents and atherectomy devices by navigating through complex vascular anatomies. As cardiovascular diseases remain the leading cause of mortality globally, the need for minimally invasive procedures utilizing micro guide catheters to treat conditions of the coronary arteries, peripheral arteries, and neurovasculature is growing.
The global Micro Guide Catheters Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 197.83 million in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.7% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends:
With rising preference for minimally invasive procedures among patients and physicians alike, the demand for advanced micro guide catheters with improved handling and deliverability characteristics is increasing.
