 Growing Incidence of Cardiovascular Diseases

Increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases across the globe is expected to drive the growth of the drug eluting balloon market. World Health Organization, cardiovascular diseases account for over 17.9 million deaths each year globally. Some of the major cardiovascular conditions include coronary heart disease, stroke and peripheral arterial disease. Aging populations, changing environmental factors and genetic predispositions  further contribute to rising disease burden. Drug eluting balloons are being increasingly used by physicians for treating peripheral arterial diseases affecting the hips and legs as well as coronary artery diseases impacting the heart. These prevent vessel recoil and neointimal hyperplasia after angioplasty procedures through the controlled, localized delivery of anti-proliferative drugs to damaged vessel sites. This minimizes the risk of restenosis and the need for additional revascularization treatments. Recent clinical studies have demonstrated drug eluting balloons to be as effective as drug eluting stents in addressing various types of atherosclerotic lesions with fewer safety issues.

Market Challenge – Lack of Reimbursement Policies

Lack of proper reimbursement policies across different geographies can hamper the growth of global drug eluting balloon market. In the case of drug eluting balloons, the reimbursement scenarios vary significantly across countries and regions. In many developing nations, there are no established reimbursement codes or payment guidelines for procedures that utilize drug eluting balloons. Healthcare facilities have to bear the costs of procuring these high-priced medical devices from their own budgets, without any assurance of being compensated for their use. This discourages hospitals and clinics from stocking and using drug eluting balloons, especially for treating conditions like peripheral artery disease, when plain old balloon angioplasty, a much cheaper alternative, is available. Even in developed markets, the reimbursement policies favor traditional uncoated balloons over drug coated versions in some cases.

Market Opportunity – Increasing Inorganic Growth Strategies by Key Market Players

Increasing adoption of inorganic growth strategies, such as acquisition, by key market players is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunities over the forecast period. For instance, in October 2022, Cordis, a worldwide leader in the development and manufacturing of interventional cardiovascular and endovascular technologies, announced the acquisition of Med Alliance SA, a medical technology company. The acquisition enabled Cordis will immediately begin co-promotion of MedAlliance’s SELUTION SLR drug-eluting balloon in markets where it is commercially available.

Insights, By Product Type: Growing demand for minimally invasive treatment boosts demand for peripheral drug eluting balloon

Product Type segment is sub-segmented into coronary drug eluting balloon, peripheral drug eluting balloon, others. Coronary drug eluting balloon sub-segment is estimated to hold 47.3% of the market share in 2024, owing to the growing need for minimally invasive treatments. Drug eluting balloons address this challenge by utilizing drug coated non-expandable balloons to treat lesions in a single procedure. Upon inflation, the drug is infused to the vessel walls to prevent narrowing of arteries without leaving behind a metallic implant. This saves patients from undergoing multiple procedures and allows for faster recovery times. The one-time therapy increases treatment adherence and compliance for chronic PAD patients who are often elderly with comorbidities. As peripheral artery disease prevalence rises with an aging global population, demand for effective therapies with fewer side effects increases. Drug eluting balloons are well-positioned to cater to this need due to their minimally invasive profile and quick treatment resolutions.

Insights, By Technology: Superior clinical results boosts adoption of lead freepac technology  

Technology segment is sub-segmented into freepac, transpac, enduracoa, others. Freepac sub-segment is estimated to hold 39.3% of the market share in 2024 due to its proven superior clinical outcomes. Among drug coating technologies, FreePac uses a innovative approach without a guiding catheter to infuse drugs onto the balloon surface. Unlike competitive TransPac or EnduraCoat technologies which rely on enclosed drug reservoirs, FreePac allows for homogenous drug transfer unconstrained by physical borders or flow restrictions. Several randomized control trials have demonstrated FreePac's ability to achieve high vessel wall concentrations with extensive, transmural drug transfer and coverage. Its unrestricted fluid dynamics minimizes residual ducts and dead spaces, addressing shortcomings of traditional systems. As a result, FreePac has shown advantages in reducing risk of target lesion revascularization compared to competing technologies. It offers durable clinical results with low vascular retreatment needs over extended follow up periods

Insights, By End User: Preference for outpatient treatment drives hospital adoption

End User segment is sub-segmented into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, others. Hospitals sub-segment is estimated to hold 35.7% of the market share in 2024 as these are the preferred settings for drug eluting balloon procedures. While ambulatory surgical centers also provide such services, hospitals offer logistic and personnel infrastructure required for complex cases, especially in high-risk patients. Their large scale allows for economies needed to support technological innovations like drug eluting balloons. Importantly, hospitals enable treatment in outpatient settings which is driving increased adoption. Drug eluting balloons enable same day discharge for many patients due to speed and minimally invasive nature versus stent or surgery alternatives. This reduces burden on inpatient beds and wait times. Favorable reimbursements for such same day discharges further incentivize hospitals to incorporate such technologies.
