US Market Report for Introducer Sheaths and Guidewires 2017 - MedCore - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "US Market Report for Introducer Sheaths and Guidewires 2017 - MedCore" report to their offering.

The guide-wire market can best be segmented into standard (non-hydrophilic) and hydrophilic guidewires. Standard guidewires are the predominant type because they can handle more pressure than their hydrophilic counterparts. Due to this property, standard guidewires can handle heavy-duty manipulations and maneuvers. Standard guidewires are produced in a variety of configurations based on shape and size. These variants range in price depending on characteristics such as size and flexibility. When more flexibility and fluidity are required, hydrophilic guidewires are used. Hydrophilic guidewires are typically manufactured in a three-step layering process.

Peritoneal dialysis does not require the use of hemodialysis introducer sheaths or guidewires. Thus, the trend towards peritoneal dialysis will erode the number of hemodialysis patients and the amount of hemodialysis equipment sold. The market share and use of hemodialysis introducer sheaths and guidewires is projected to decrease proportional to the number of patients transitioning from hemodialysis to peritoneal dialysis.
