Coronary Guidewires Remain Top-selling Category
Rising incidences of heart ailments have resulted in coronary guidewires accounting for a major portion of the global market share, with a projected CAGR of 6.6% through 2025. On the other hand, urological dysfunction has resulted in urological guidewires capturing 15% of the overall market.

North America's Primacy Prevails
North America remains a highly lucrative market for companies involved in the production and sales of medical guidewires, and accounts for 2/5th of the overall market share. The presence of numerous major guidewire manufacturers and superior healthcare infrastructure continues to sustain the growth of the market through the coronavirus pandemic. North America's value share is expected to grow 1.5x through the forecast period.
