This article was originally published in Clinica
The world stent market may be worth $692 million in 1995 and as much as $2,237 million by the year 2000, a Hambrecht & Quist industry report estimates. In the US alone, stent revenues this year are estimated to total $534 million, 369% more than last year. They are predicted to reach $1,522 million by 2000. The US represents the largest potential market, and by the beginning of the next century, when stents could be used in 75% of interventional procedures, may account for about 68% of world stent revenues.
