Urinary catheters are hollow, partially flexible tubes that collect urine from the bladder. Catheters are generally necessary when a patient is unable to empty their bladder. If the bladder is not emptied, urine can build up and lead to pressure in the kidneys. The pressure can result in kidney failure, which can be dangerous and may result in permanent damage to the kidneys. Higher incidences of urinary disorders, rapidly aging population, rising demand for minimally invasive and technological advancement are driving the urinary catheters market worldwide. The intermittent catheters segment held the largest share of the global urinary catheters market followed by Foley catheters in 2015 considering its advantage in short term or temporary catheterization.
