Central Venous Access Devices Market in the US 2015-2019
About Central Venous Access Devices
Central venous access devices are inserted into the central venous system to administer medication or fluids, draw blood, and measure central venous pressure. These devices are made up of a non-irritant material such as silicone, so that they can be left in place for several weeks or months. Central venous access devices are recommended when there is difficulty to obtain peripheral venous access or in case of certain intravenous therapies such as chemotherapy, total parenteral nutrition, prolonged medication, repeated transfusions of blood or blood products, and frequent blood sampling. These devices are inserted either by surgeons or interventional radiologists with or without the use of general anesthesia. CVCs, PICCs, and implantable ports are the most common types of central venous access devices.
Technavio's analysts forecast the central venous access devices market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 7.85% over the period 2015-2019.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Power-injectable PICCs are used to inject contrast media into the vein during CT imaging. This technique enhances visualization during diagnostic imaging procedures. A catheter used for such procedures must be sturdy and able to withstand pressures higher than 300 psi. Power-injectable catheters are used for CT imaging, as they are made of polyurethane. The material is stronger than silicone and can withstand high pressures with only a small decrease in flexibility. For example, the PowerPICC devices offered by C.R. Bard combine the efficacy of PICC access and power injection into one catheter, thereby allowing their use in CT scans for injecting contrast media.”
According to the report, the US Census Bureau has projected that the number of Americans aged 65 and above will increase by 2020. The physiological changes associated with aging include a higher risk of developing chronic diseases such as ESRD and various types of cancer, which might require critical care. This leads to an increased demand for venous access devices for delivering drugs, supplying nutrient-rich fluid, and collecting blood samples.
Further, the report states that the insertion of central venous access devices increases the risk of deep vein thrombosis inhibits market growth.
