The global coronary guidewires market size stood at USD 383.3 million in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 845.1 million by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period.

Guidewires technology is used to access vascular targets with higher precision and accuracy. These devices improve the quality of surgical as well as diagnostic procedures. Coronary guidewires are predominantly utilized in interventional cardiovascular procedures such as angioplasty and other percutaneous procedures. Certain characteristics of the device such as stiffness, advanced tip, coating, and shape enable surgical specialists to diagnose and treat lesions in complex anatomical structures. Combined with this is the integration of advanced technologies in coronary guidewires market, such as steerability and superior vision, which can improve procedural outcomes.

Higher utilization of vascular guidewires in coronary procedures due to better procedural efficiency and reduction in mortality risk is anticipated to accelerate the growth of the coronary guidewires segment in the market during the forecast period. An extensively increasing prevalence of cardiovascular conditions across the globe, coupled with increasing demand for advanced guidewires is anticipated to fuel the adoption of these devices by 2026 and set newer coronary guidewires market trends. For instance, according to a study conducted by the American Heart Association (AHA), in 2016, an estimated 15.5 million people in the U.S. had coronary heart disease.

New product launches and technological advancements in interventional coronary guidewires market is further expected to boost the adoption in cardiovascular procedures during the forecast period. For instance, In October 2019, Cardiovascular Systems Inc. got FDA approval for their ViperWire Advance Coronary Guide Wire. The newly advanced guidewire is equipped with Diamondback 360 orbital atherectomy system, enabling superior navigation and treatment outcomes.

The interventional coronary guidewires market is witnessing several technological advancements. The adoption of coronary guidewires is expected to witness growth in developed and developing countries owing to exponentially increasing prevalence of cardiovascular conditions.


“Increasing Number of Cardiac Interventions to Boost the Market”

Increasing number of cardiac interventions across the globe owing to rising prevalence of cardiac diseases in developing countries will contribute to coronary guidewires market growth during the forecast period. For instance, cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) represent the leading cause of death in China and account for two out of five deaths in China. As per the official report “Cardiovascular Diseases in China 2017” published by the National Center for Cardiovascular Diseases, the total number of cardiovascular diseases patients in China in 2017 was 290 million and rapid aging process will further increase the prevalence CVDs in China. This, combined with advantages offered by advanced coronary guidewire features such as improved vision, superior lesion access, and low procedural cost, are projected to drive the market during the forecast period.

Furthermore, technological advancements in diagnostic and surgical equipment are anticipated to offer lucrative growth opportunities for minimally invasive surgeries, which will eventually boost the growth of the coronary guidewires market by 2026. Additionally, consolidated focus of operating players on strategic collaborations and new product launches with an aim to develop and commercialize new guidewire technology can offer greater incentives for increasing the adoption of guidewires. For instance, in April 2019, Biotronik, one of the major players in vascular access devices expanded its peripheral guidewire product portfolio due to higher demand in developed as well as emerging nations. 

“Attractive Medical Reimbursement Policies to Increase the Adoption of Coronary Guidewires”

Favorable medical reimbursement policies implemented by government authorities are expected to offer significant opportunities for the growth of this market during the forecast period. Strict implementation of reimbursement policies in developed countries is likely to encourage the utilization of guidewires in cardiac surgical procedures, which will eventually drive the coronary guidewires market revenue till 2026. On the contrary, high cost of minimally invasive surgeries considered to limit the growth of coronary guidewires market during the forecast period.

“Superiority and Enhanced Efficiency of Nitinol is Anticipated to Exhibit Fastest CAGR”

On the basis of material, the guidewire market can be segmented into nitinol, stainless steel, and others. In terms of revenue, the stainless steel segment is estimated to dominate the coronary guidewires market owing to enhanced procedural outcomes over other materials. Moreover, qualities of stainless steel such as kink resistance and higher rational stability are projected to further drive this segment. Nitinol material segment is anticipated to register significant CAGR owing to shift of material preference to Nitinol from stainless steel.

By Coating Analysis

“Improved Transmission of Coated Guidewires to Bolster Growth of the Coated Segment”

On the basis of coating, the market can be segmented into coated and non-coated. In terms of revenue, the coated segment is estimated to dominate the market. Hydrophobic and hydrophilic are some of the types of coated guidewires. These coatings are responsible for smoother transmission of guidewire through complex anatomical structure. Additionally, coated guidewires minimize the risk of infections and injuries owing to which the segment is expected to witness a significant CAGR during 2019-2026. Non-coated guidewires are projected to witness lower CAGR as the consequence of lower adoption in the global market, as stated in the coronary guidewires market report.

By End User Analysis

“Increasing number of Surgical and Diagnostic Procedure in Hospitals to Aid Growth of This Segment”

On the basis of the end user, the market is segmented into hospitals, cardiac catheterization laboratories, and others. The hospitals segment is estimated to dominate the global coronary guidewire market throughout the forecast period. Increasing number of angioplasty and other cardiovascular surgeries in hospitals are projected to drive the hospitals segment during the forecast period. For instance, according to a research conducted by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the volume of percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty procedures increased by an estimated 20.0% during 2001-2011 in U.S. hospitals.  

Combined with this is the gradual shift of patient preference from inpatient visits to outpatient visits, which is anticipated to offer significant growth opportunities for the cardiac catheterization laboratories end user segment in the guidewire market during 2019-2026. The others segment, which includes ambulatory surgery centers, and other care facilities, is expected to hold considerable market share owing to increased demand from advanced healthcare facilities in developing as well as developed countries.


North America generated a revenue of USD 128.5 million in 2018 and is projected to dominate the coronary guidewires market share throughout the forecast period. Availability of cutting-edge healthcare institutions, availability of the products, and emphasis on utilization of modern healthcare technology are anticipated to drive the region during the forecast period. Moreover, strict implementation of medical reimbursement policies in the U.S. is projected to serve attractive scope for increased adoption of coronary guidewires in the region.
