Industry Trends

There are a few components to the heart valve market, including tissue and mechanical non-percutaneous artificial heart valves. Of these two, tissue heart valves are generally preferred over mechanical valves, due to their higher levels of biocompatibility. Tissue valves, which are also known as bioprosthetic valves, are harvested from either human donors or animal tissue. Human tissue valves can either be obtained from donor cadavers in allograft procedures, or from one’s own body, which is known as an autograft. Another segment of the heart valve market is the annulopplasty repair device market. Heart valves can be repaired through annuloplasty or valvuloplasty. Annuloplasty involves resizing heart valves and a valvuloplasty procedure involves repairing heart valve leaflets, which have calcium deposits or extra tissue on the leaflets. Although all valves may undergo repair procedures, mitral valve repair is by far the most common procedure, followed by tricuspid valve repair.

Growth of the tissue heart valve market is primarily fueled by a growing number of heart valve replacement procedures, as well as the continued shift in preference for tissue valves over mechanical valves. On top of this, technological improvements to increase durability of tissue valves have further helped to fuel growth. The market for mechanical valves is broken into two segments: mechanical valves without a conduit and mechanical valves with a conduit. The mechanical valves without a conduit make up the majority of the mechanical valve market. Both of the segments are expected to decline slowly during the forecast period, with the mechanical valve without conduits declining more quickly than the mechanical valves with conduits. On the other hand, the aging population of patients requiring heart valve repair will contribute to an increase in the unit sales of annuloplasty repair devices. Of the transcatheter heart valve repair and replacement markets, the transcatheter aortic valve replacement market is a segment that is expected to undergo significant growth. The transcatheter mitral valve repair market, though smaller than TAVR, is also expected to grow over the forecast period, benefitting from many of the same drivers as TAVR.

Companies Analyzed

In the United States heart valve market, Edwards Lifesciences and Abbott lead the way in the majority of the segments mentioned above. Edwards Lifesciences is the market leader in the tissue heart valve market, the annuloplasty repair device market, and has an especially strong share in the transcatheter mitral valve replacement device market. Abbott leads the way in the mechanical heart valve market, and has 100% of the United States market share in the transcatheter mitral valve repair market. Medtronic is also a significant player in many of these markets.

Edwards Lifesciences and Abbott also lead the way in many of the heart valve market segments in the European market. Similar to the United States, Edwards has the largest market share in the tissue heart valve and the annuloplasty repair market segments, but falls to Abbott in the transcatheter mitral valve replacement market. Abbott also leads the way in the mechanical heart valve market, with almost half of the market share. In the European market for transcatheter aortic valve implantation devices Medtronic leads the way, edging out Edwards Lifesciences.
