According to a new series of reports by iData Research, the total U.S. market for interventional cardiology devices was valued at $2.9 billion in 2017. Growth of the U.S. interventional cardiology market is highly correlated with annual procedural volume, particularly percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and angiography procedures. PCI procedural growth has a positive effect on the associated device markets, such as coronary stents, balloon catheters, interventional catheters and guidewires and various other devices required per procedure. Angiography procedure volumes are expected to remain stable over the forecast period.

In 2017, the largest segment in the interventional cardiology market was the coronary stent market, which represented approximately 44% of the total market value. Unit sales growth for the total coronary stent market is exceedingly dependent on the annual PCI procedure volume, and any significant changes will exhibit a direct effect on sales volume.

[custom_blockquote style=”eg. green, yellow, purple, blue, red, black, grey”] “Following multiple clinical studies that presented evidence of over-stenting in the U.S market, PCI procedure volume and coronary stent sales experienced substantial declines for several years,” explains Jeffrey Wong, Strategic Analyst Manager at iData Research. “However, fluctuations in procedure volumes have recently stabilized, and low single-digit growth is expected over the forecast period.” [/custom_blockquote]

The total coronary stent market comprises bare-metal stents, drug-eluting stents, covered stents and bifurcated stents. The value of the total coronary stent market decreased in 2017 and is expected to fluctuate between negative to flat growth. Changes in growth rates will be driven by modest increases in unit sales and ASP depreciation across all segments. ASP depreciation will be driven by bundling and competitive pricing pressure. Bundling is driven by unfavorable reimbursement conditions and larger competitors, who have a wide variety of devices to offer across the interventional cardiology market and are able to negotiate more cost-effective contracts with hospitals and labs.

Boston Scientific is the market leader in the total U.S. interventional cardiology market. Boston Scientific is an extremely well-established competitor in this field, with a strong reputation and large sales force in both the coronary and peripheral markets. The company has recently emphasized its focus on the complex PCI opportunity in the market, for which it offers specialized devices such as CTO systems, atherectomy devices, specialty balloon catheters, embolic protection devices, IVUS and FFR. The company is expected to maintain its leading position in the market.

Abbott Laboratories participates in a wide variety of device segments, often holding one of the top leading positions within each market. The company expanded its position in the overall market through its acquisition of St. Jude Medical in 2017, effectively adding coronary embolic protection devices, introducer sheaths, diagnostic coronary catheters and guidewires and OCT devices to its portfolio.
