GlobalData estimated the global central venous catheters market at $582.2m in 2010. Driven by the success of antimicrobial central venous catheters, the market is forecast to reach to $727.4m in 2017 growing at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 3.2%.

The antimicrobial central venous catheters market segment is expected to grow due to the increased focus on prevention of Healthcare Associated Infection (HAI), while the non-antimicrobial central venous catheters market segment will grow due to its low cost.

The largest central venous catheters market was that of the US, which was valued at $295m in 2010, having grown at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2003. The non-antimicrobial central venous catheters market segment was the largest market segment with revenues of $193.9m in 2010. The antimicrobial central venous catheters market segment was valued at $101.1m in 2010.

Patients who require the external administration of nutrition and medication consequently require the use of central venous catheters. The American Cancer Society estimates that about 1.64 million new cases of cancer will be detected in the US in 2012. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimate that the total costs due to cancer in 2007 were $226.8 billion, comprising $103.8 billion in direct medical costs and $123 billion in indirect mortality costs. Significant attention towards prevention of HAIs by the healthcare payers is also expected to drive the market growth.
