Guidewire refers to a thin and flexible tube used to guide a catheter while placing it in the diseased artery. After the catheter is finally placed, the guidewire is removed. The most common insertion point for the guidewire and catheter is the femoral artery at the groin. Brachial artery and coronary arteries are the other possible insertion points for guidewires. Rise in the number of minimally invasive procedures has boosted the demand for guidewires. Guidewires are reusable and display biomechanical properties. Hence, they are extensively used across the medical device industry. All these factors are propelling the growth of the global guidewires market.
On the basis of product type, the report segments the global guidewires market into coronary guidewire, peripheral guidewire, urology guidewire, and neurovascular guidewire. The demand for each of the guidewire types has been analyzed in the report.
