Market Intel: Increasingly Less-Invasive Diagnostic Techs To Disrupt Interventional Cardio Market

Executive Summary

The global market for diagnostic and guided interventional cardiology products is expected to reach $4.8bn by 2021, and is driven in large part by the rising elderly population and increasing burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Meddevicetracker expects that intracardiac echocardiography (ICE), guide wire-based intravascular stenosis assessment (FFR) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems will drive overall market growth, given their high demand, which is supported by clinical evidence needed to bring cost savings and improved outcomes. Physicians' preference for using noninvasive and minimally invasive diagnostic techniques in cases where results are inconclusive is also changing the landscape of innovation. In this feature, we'll take a closer look at the overall market and its regional perspective, the competitive landscape of the three fastest-growing segments ICE, FFR and OCT, and the latest emerging technologies, as well as provide insight into what physicians think of these technologies.

Market Intel: The Changing Dynamics Of Newer-Generation Drug-Eluting Stents

The global vascular stents market is expected to reach $8.8bn by 2021, driven primarily by the growing prevalence of cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death worldwide. Limitations of current stent products are fueling innovations by the three big heart players - Abbott, Boston Scientific and Medtronic - as well as startups to develop next-generation drug-eluting and bioresorbable stents that can reduce the risk of adverse event. This feature looks more closely at the competitive landscape of the overall vascular stent market focusing in particular on the changing dynamics of drug-eluting stents, which is the largest and second-fastest segment in this overall market, including its use for treating peripheral artery disease, along with physician surveys and perspectives.
