The U.S. market for vascular access devices and accessories includes implantable ports, port needles, central venous catheters (CVCs), peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs), peripheral intravenous catheters (PIVCs), midlines, dialysis catheters, ultrasound machines, tip guidance devices, catheter securement devices, syringes and needles.
The majority of vascular access devices are single-use disposables. These devices can be of high volume and low cost or of relatively low volume and high cost. Syringes and needles, catheter stabilization devices and ultrasound systems are all used in various non-vascular access applications. Therefore, only the portion of those segments directly involved in vascular access was included in the overall market.
The U.S. market for vascular access devices and accessories increased in 2015 and growth is expected to persist throughout the forecast period. Market growth will be driven by government policies that encourage safer practices and products, including those introduced by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
As a result of these policies, treatments for vascular access-related bloodstream infections are no longer reimbursable, thereby increasing the need for antimicrobial and antibacterial devices. Moreover, guidelines by the Joint Commission outlined the increased use of full barrier drapes and manufactured catheter securement devices (MCSDs) to reduce the risk of infection, both of which are becoming more prevalent in catheter kits.
New products in the ultrasound and tip-location markets will also drive the vascular access market, as standards of care shift away from doctors and toward nurses placing the catheters. With these new technologies, catheter placement can be done at bedside with fewer incidences of catheter movement, or malposition. In addition, nearly all patients admitted to the hospital are treated with vascular access devices. With the aging U.S. population, the demand for vascular access products will rise.
