Guidewires Market Size, Analysis, Trends, Challenges & Forecast to 2023


The global guidewires market is growing, due to the increase in minimally invasive procedures. The increasing aging population and chronic diseases is also fuelling the growth of the global market. Furthermore, the worldwide growing prevalence of cardiovascular procedures across various age groups results in more number of cases undergoing PCI (Percutaneous Coronary Interventions) procedures, which is boosting the growth of the global market.

A guidewire is a very thin tube on which catheter is placed, and it is inserted into the artery and moved towards the area of blockage. A guidewire helps in positioning, inserting, and moving catheter inside an artery to treat blockages. During the stenting procedure, a stent is placed over the balloon catheter, which is associated with a guidewire and then moved towards the blockage area in the artery. The balloon inflates inside the artery allowing the plaque to compress, leading to the opening of the artery. A stent then expands inside the artery and forms a scaffold. This allows artery to remain open, improve blood flow, and prevents reclosing of the artery. A coronary guidewire is inserted in care of coronary intervention procedure; whereas, peripheral guidewire is inserted in case of peripheral vascular intervention procedure.
