Structural Heart Devices Market Report, published by Allied Market Research, forecasts that the global market was valued at $6,006 million in 2015, and is expected to reach $12,076 million by 2022, supported by a CAGR of 10.5% during the forecast period 2016 - 2022. The structural heart repair devices segment held nearly half of the total market share in 2015, and is expected to dominate during the forecast period.
Rise in incidence of aortic stenosis, introduction of technologically advanced products (such as the Trifecta valve with Glide Technology), and increase in awareness about the benefits and availability of structural heart devices worldwide are major factors that drive the market growth. In addition, increase in number of application areas for repair and replacement devices coupled with its rise in adoption of annuloplasty rings and tissue valves is expected to further fuel this growth. However, stringent approval process and high cost of surgeries restrict the market growth.
Tissue heart valves is expected to maintain its dominant position throughout the analysis period, due to its significant property of low requirement of anticoagulants, which reduces incidence of bleeding and thereby lowers the usage of anticoagulant by the patient.
The occluders segment accounted for two-fifths of the overall structural heart repair devices market in 2015, owing to its benefits in the treatment of congenital heart diseases and high adoption rate. In addition, annuloplasty ring is projected to register the highest CAGR of 13.3% during the forecast period.
Key Findings of Structural Heart Devices Market:
North America dominated the global structural heart devices market, accounting for one-third of the overall market in 2015, owing to the increase in prevalence of structural heart diseases.
Aortic valve stenosis indication occupied more than one-third of the total market in 2015.
Adult age group segment is expected to grow at the highest rate of 11.1%.
China occupied one-fifth of the total Asia-Pacific structural heart devices market in 2015.
Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing region in the structural heart devices market, and is expected to continue this trend due to increase in healthcare infrastructural development, specifically in China, India, and other developing economies, and rise in structural heart defects.
Structural heart devices are used to treat heart valves defects as well as acquired valvar abnormalities. The market for structural heart devices is growing at a rapid pace, providing an opportunity for key players to enter this market. For instance, in May 2016, Johnson & Johnson announced that will enter structural heart devices market due to the high growth potential.
