Global Atherectomy Devices Market: Snapshot

With the increasing incidence of peripheral artery diseases (PAD), the demand for atherectomy devices has increased substantially across the world. Over 250 million patients suffer from PAD, globally. During the period from 2000 to 2010, the prevalence of PAD rose by 24% and continues to increase at a significantly high rate, leading to a remarkable increase in the uptake of atherectomy devices.

In addition to this, since atherectomy is also a minimally invasive procedure, the rising preference for minimally invasive surgical procedures is likely to aid the global market for atherectomy devices remarkably in the years to come. The opportunity in this market is expected to touch US$558.9 mn by the end of 2017. Further, it is likely to expand at a CAGR of 5.60% during the period from 2017 to 2022 and attain a value of US$735 mn by 2022.
