The coronary market for introducer sheaths included standard introducer sheaths and micro introducer sheaths. However, for the purposes of this report, the market will include both devices and will not be segmented into the two parts. Although it is estimated that sales of micro-introducers accounted for the majority of the total market due to the less invasive nature of the device. Microintroducers sell for a higher price than standard introducers, with an ASP of almost double that of standard introducers.

Introducer sheaths are used for both diagnostic and interventional procedures. In most interventional procedures, an introducer sheath will be used initially and a guiding catheter will be subsequently inserted. However, occasionally the physician will not place an introducer sheath, but directly place a guiding catheter. Guiding catheters (sometimes known as guiding sheaths) are far more expensive than introducer sheaths and are considered as a separate market.
