As per the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) report, the COVID-19 pandemic has a significant impact on the global health economies. The impact of the pandemic hindered the growth for the overall market as the adoption of silicone based catheters among healthcare facilities was reduced. Silicone based catheters are generally used in urinary tract infection and prostate gland surgeries practices.

However, most of these procedures were halted due to the emergence of COVID-19 crisis. According to a research conducted by the Commonwealth Fund report, during the first week of April and May 2020, the hardest-hit medical specialties such as dental, ophthalmology, ENT, and dermatology experienced a strong decline beyond 50%. With COVID-19 lockdowns, all UTI and prostate surgeries stopped. Thus, foley catheter-based treatments experienced the strongest decline in terms of procedures performed in hospitals. 

For instance, in March 2020, the UK introduced a country-wide lockdown that came into effect from March 23rd, 2020. Since then, clinics offering laser and intense pulsed light services have remained closed for business.  With a strategy to relax, COVID-19 lockdown has been discussed and implemented worldwide with vaccination drive proving helpful, many foley catheters practitioners have resumed their silicone based catheters services
