In 2021, GlobalData’s Market Model methodology determined that the leading player in the percutaneous drainage catheters market in Sweden was Cook Medical followed by Boston Scientific, Argon Medical Devices, Merit Medical Systems and CR Bard.

Physical designs vary depending on the type of percutaneous drainage catheter at hand, which often leads to its procedure-specific use. Four types of percutaneous drainage catheters are covered in this market, namely multipurpose, nephrostomy, biliary, and centesis drainage catheters. While the drainage catheters can be purchased as either stand-alone devices or as part of drainage kits and trays, GlobalData opted to report the average selling prices of the catheters as stand-alone devices, thereby limiting the influence of non-catheter components in drainage kits and trays driving up the catheter prices. Based on real world purchasing data, sales volumes of drainage kits and trays were taken into consideration when evaluating the market size. Multipurpose Drainage Catheters are pigtailed drainage catheters that are primarily used to address abscesses that are often bacteriologically contaminated due to post-surgical complications. Nephrostomy Drainage Catheters are pigtailed drainage catheters that are used to drain abnormal fluid accumulation in the kidneys, which often occur due to an obstruction in the downstream urinary pathway. Biliary Drainage Catheters are pigtailed drainage catheters that are used to drain abnormal fluid accumulation in the biliary ducts, which often occur due to an obstruction in the downstream biliary ducts. Centesis Drainage Catheters are primarily straight catheters that are used in thoracentesis and paracentesis drainage procedures when managing pleural effusion or peritoneal effusion, respectively.

Following the widespread disruption resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic to the broader medical devices market during 2020 and 2021, the value of the percutaneous drainage catheters devices market within Sweden was expected to be over $0.4m in 2021.
