Endovenous Ablasion and Sclerotherapy Propagate Incremental Opportunities for Healthcare Industries

The condition of varicose veins is being commonly found in many individuals. Growing incidence of this health condition has opened up opportunities for companies in the varicose vein treatment market to offer a variety of efficacious treatment options.

Endothermal ablasion or endovenous laser treatment is being increasingly pursued as a minimally-invasive therapy for varicose vein patients. This trend is anticipated to contribute for pervasive revenue growth of endovenous ablasion amongst all treatment options in the varicose vein treatment market, with a projected revenue of ~US$ 800 million by the end of 2027. Healthcare providers are increasingly recommending endovenous ablation as the first line of treatment for varicose veins.

On the other hand, ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy is being increasingly adopted by healthcare providers in the varicose vein treatment landscape. Companies are increasing research efforts to develop improved formulations of foam, since foam acts as a suitable alternative to liquid. This treatment is generating incremental opportunities for healthcare industries, since sclerotherapy is associated with better outcomes and fewer complications amongst patients.

Proper Compression in Products Aid Increased Adoption Post Invasive Treatment

Companies in the varicose vein treatment space are increasing their production capabilities to manufacture compression garments and devices. As such, compression garments and devices are anticipated to enjoy the highest revenue amongst all products in the varicose vein treatment market, with a value projection of ~US$ 1.1 billion by 2027. This is why healthcare industries are steering innovation toward the development of various compression products such as compression bandages, self-adjustable Velcro devices, compression stockings, and hybrid devices. Healthcare providers are increasingly recommending the use of compression products after varicose vein intervention.

Compression therapy is serving as an efficacious solution for patients post invasive treatment of superficial veins. However, in many cases, it has been found that, patients report difficulties during the donning and doffing of compression stockings. Concerns with hygiene also restrain the adoption of compression products. To overcome these limitations, companies in the varicose vein treatment market are increasing R&D to develop devices and garments with proper compression that help reduce the incidence of pain associated with their usage.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Phlebectomy is a reliable surgical treatment that is less technically challenging as compared to many other treatment options. The VenaSeal closure system is found to be advantageous as a painless treatment option. Surgical stripping is a conventional but effective treatment that is being used for decades in the healthcare space. However, the recovery time is longer in this type of treatment. Hence, companies in the varicose vein treatment market should manufacture improved compression bandages and other compression products that aid speedy recovery.

Companies should focus on the development of minimally-invasive devices that improve outcomes in patients. In this way, they would gain credibility as a trustworthy company that caters to the specific needs of patients in the landscape.
