Market Snapshot: Vascular Access Site Closure Market Expected To Rise 6.5% By 2022

The global market for vascular access site closure products is expected to reach $1bn in 2022, driven in large part by the rising prevalence of cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death globally. The most dominant trend in this market is the development of vascular closure devices for larger arteriotomies. Large-bore procedures, such as transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and endovascular aneurysm repair, will drive demand for vascular closure devices. Due to complications associated with active vascular closure devices, the use of passive vascular closure devices is on the rise. Check out our infographic for details.

QUOTED. Dec. 10, 2018. David Ahn.

The global blood glucose monitoring devices market is expected to exceed $7bn by 2022, driven in large part by the fastest-growing continuous glucose monitoring segment. Sales of the much larger blood glucose meter segment, meanwhile, are expected to drop to $3.7bn in 2022 from nearly $5bn in 2017 amid rising competition from lower-cost manufacturers and tech giants entering this space. But the major blood glucose meter makers are also reinventing themselves by offering smarter technologies. See what David Ahn, an endocrinologist and program director at the Mary and Dick Allen Diabetes Center at the Hoag Hospital in Newport Beach, California said about the issue here.

Market Intel: Needle-Free Glucose Monitoring, Digital Solutions Are Game-Changers In Growing Diabetes-Monitoring Market

The global blood glucose monitoring devices market is expected to exceed $7bn by 2022, driven by the smaller, but fastest-growing continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) segment, which is expanding at double-digits. The much bigger blood glucose meter (BGM) segment, meanwhile, is facing increased competition from lower-cost manufacturers, innovative startups and tech giants like Apple that are attracting consumers with smart devices and packaged diabetes management solutions. This first of a two-part series looks more closely at the competitive landscape of the two major product segments – BGM and CGM – with insights from endocrinologists. The second part will focus on the pros and cons of using diabetes management apps and highlights the best diabetes apps.

Market Intel: Cornea, Bio-Drugs, Artificial Hips On Track For 3D Printing

Although certainly not a given, many researchers and companies are pursing the eventual goal of bioprinting human organs, starting with the three-dimensional printing of a structure that has cellular function. If organ function via bioprinting becomes a reality for the skin, bone, lung, liver, eye and/or kidney, among other potential organs, the market opportunity could be in the billions. But challenges, including cost and ethics, stand in the way of this milestone in regenerative medicine.
