Our infographic spotlights key trends in the global market for cerebral aneurysm and arteriovenous malformation (AVM) embolization systems, which is expected to reach $1.2bn by 2022, a CAGR of 3.9% from $975m in 2017. Among the growth drivers is the improvement of imaging screening techniques in developed nations. While this has resulted in increased intervention for cerebral aneurysm and AVM embolization, routine screening is not practiced, even in developed nations.
