London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) August 04, 2011 -- In 2010, the global market for interventional cardiology devices was valued at $10 billion and is forecast to reach $11.3 billion in 2017 at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 2%. The market will be driven by growing prevalence of Coronary Heart Disease (CHD). Bioabsorbable stents, Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) coronary Drug Eluting Balloons (DEB) and Intravascular Ultrasound Systems (IVUS) are expected to drive the growth of the market through better efficacy and
safety profiles, reduced procedure time and reduced procedure cost. New techniques such as transradial intervention to minimize access site bleeding will contribute to an increase in Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) procedures. The coronary stents segment accounts for about 50% of the total revenue and will continue to influence the growth of the market for interventional cardiology devices. The market is forecast to experience modest growth over the next seven years, primarily due to price erosion in the coronary stents market.
The US market for interventional cardiology devices was valued at $4.2 billion in 2010 and is forecast to
reach $4.6 billion in 2017 at a CAGR of 1%. The US is the biggest market for interventional cardiology devices and will continue to be so in the future. The US market is forecast to experience slow growth due to intense competition in the coronary stents market, leading to price erosion. However in the long term, US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of bioabsorbable stents and PTCA Coronary Drug
Eluting Balloons (DEB) is expected to drive the growth of coronary stents market. Furthermore, positive
clinical trial outcomes on bioabsorbable stents and DEB are expected to boost physicians' confidence.
Recent proposals for an In-patient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) are expected to slightly increase
the payments received by acute care hospitals in the US.
Increasing preference for minimally invasive PCI procedures is expected to drive the growth of global
interventional cardiology devices market. Since the inception of Drug Eluting Stents (DES), the safety and
efficacy profile of PCI procedures for CHD has improved significantly. A decrease in the mortality rates
associated with CHD has boosted physicians' confidence in PCI procedures. New innovations such as bioabsorbable stents will further drive the growth of PCI procedures due to greater safety and efficacy
standards. Positive clinical evidence on DEB for applications other than the treatment of late stent thrombosis will further boost physicians' confidence about PCI procedures. Transradial intervention is
another novel technique that is expected to increase the adoption of PCI procedures as it reduces access
site bleeding to a great extent.

Technological innovations such as bioabsorbable stents are expected to drive the growth of coronary
stents market in the future. Bioabsorbable stents made of bioabsorbable polymer degrade in a time span of two years. The risk of late stent thrombosis associated with DES is reduced in these products. Absorb from Abbott Laboratories is the first fully bioabsorbable DES to receive regulatory approval in Europe. The device is approved in Europe but yet to be approved by the FDA. Positive clinical trials for Absorb have encouraged companies to focus on the development of bioabsorbable stents for long term sustainability. The validation of bioabsorbable stents as superior to drug eluting stents and bare metal stents through more clinical trials and approval by the FDA will drive growth of the coronary stents market. Also, technologies under development such as diamond carbon coating, platinum enriched stainless stents and antibody coated or gene therapy stents are expected to drive future growth in the market.
