Global Aortic Aneurysm Market – By Procedure Types (Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm and Thoracic Aneurysm) By Product Type (Stent Grafts, Catheters, and Others) – Drivers, Opportunities, Trends, and Forecasts: 2017–2023
Aortic aneurysm is a condition in which the aortic wall is enlarged at a certain point, which leads to rupturing of the artery resulting in internal bleeding. Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) are the two types of aneurysms based on the location of the aneurysm. The first AAA surgical procedure was performed in 1991 and since then there has been an evolution in the treatment of stent grafts. Montenegro, Armenia, and New Zealand were the top three regions with highest mortality rate in 2013.
The increasing lifestyle diseases and smoking population are the factors that increase the chances for aortic aneurysm. Along with this, the growing aging population, favorable reimbursement, and technological advancements in products are driving the growth of the aortic aneurysm market. However, lack of awareness about the disease, stringent regulatory approval procedures, and risk associated with the procedure are hampering the growth of the market. The main unmet need in the market is endoleaking, which increases the mortality rate.
Currently, the market players are developing technologically advanced stent grafts for the treatment of complex aortic aneurysm repairs. The EVAR segment contributed more than 70% of the total market share in 2016. A major focus in this segment is expected to drive the growth of the aortic aneurysm market in the future.
The Global Aortic Aneurysm Market is estimated to witness a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period 2017–2023. The aortic aneurysm market is analyzed based on three segments – type, product types, and regions.
The regions covered in the report are North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World (ROW). North America is set to be the leading region for the aortic aneurysm market growth followed by Europe. Asia Pacific and ROW are set to be the emerging regions. Japan is the second standalone market after the US growing with a double digit CAGR.
Analysis by Types:
The aortic aneurysm market is segmented into AAA and TAA. AAA occupies the major share in the market with EVAR being the most adopted AAA procedure. TAA is the fastest growing segment in the market. This is due to the technological advancements and the increasing awareness of the condition among the patients globally.
Analysis by Product Types:
Based on products, the market is segmented as stent grafts, catheters, and other accessories. The stent grafts segment held the major share in 2016, and is expected to grow at a rate of 6.75% during the forecast period. Among the types of stent grafts, AAA stent grafts held a major share in 2016, and the rest of the market is held by TAA stent grafts.
