Rising Incidence of Cardiovascular Disease to Boost Demand for Biodegradable Stents

The global biodegradable stents market is categorized on the basis of material, stent type, and end user. Based on stent type, the market is bifurcated into peripheral artery stents and coronary artery stents. Of these two, coronary artery stents held the maximum share in 2015. Over the coming years, the demand for coronary artery stents is likely to increase because of rapid growth of deaths due to cardiovascular diseases across the globe. Moreover, rising use of stents and growing preference of cardiologists to perform percutaneous coronary intervention procedures is expected to trigger the demand in the biodegradable stents market.

Based on material type, the global biodegradable stents market is bifurcated into polymer and metal. Moreover, in terms of end-user, the global biodegradable stents market is divided into cardiac catheterization laboratories, hospitals, and ambulatory surgery centers.

Recent Approvals from the U.S.FDA to Boost Biodegradable Stents Market in North America

On the regional front, the report on the global biodegradable stents market is categorized into Latin America, Europe, North America, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific. Among these regions, Europe held maximum shares in the global market in 2015. During the forecast period, this region is likely to rise at staggering 27.2% CAGR between 2016 and 2024. Moreover, recent approvals from the U.S.FDA is likely to grow the North America biodegradable stents market in the forthcoming years.

On the other hand, the demand for biodegradable stents is likely to grow in Asia Pacific due to uptake of newer technologies. Growing prevalence of hypertension and diabetes in this region is likely to boost the demand for biodegradable stents, as patients suffering from these conditions have high possibility to get cardiovascular diseases. Most importantly quick approvals from regulatory bodies in Asia Pacific is also driving the biodegradable stents market.

Boston Scientific, Inc., Abbott Laboratories, Elixir Medical Corporation, Kyoto Medical Planning, Biotronik, Terumo Europe NV, and Sahajanand Medical Technologies are some of the prominent players in the global biodegradable stents market.

Global Biodegradable Stents Market: Overview

Biodegradable Stents are the third generation of stents used in the treatment of coronary artery diseases, which are completely absorbed in the body after the drug is eluted. The biodegradable stents have emerged as a perfect replacement to the standard Drug Eluting Stents having a permanent polymer coating over them. Introduction of biodegradable stents has resulted into reduction in rates of thrombosis, in-stent restenosis, and dual anti-platelet therapy required with the DES and Bare Metal Stents, as the polymer or metal is completely absorbed in the vessel, resulting into efficient drug delivery, and vascular restoration.  Players in the stents market are now looking beyond the coronary and peripheral artery disease treatment applications of the biodegradable stents after various clinical trials which have demonstrated the efficiency of these biodegradable stents in other vascular interventions.
