Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) is a procedure that uses a short, flexible plastic tube or catheter that has a balloon at the end to open up a blocked blood vessel. When the tube is placed in the artery, it inflates to cause normal blood flow. Fatty deposits in the blood vessels can reduce blood flow, and in severe situations, totally block it. Fat buildup poses the greatest risk of forming clots and causing a heart attack or stroke. This danger can be reduced by using PTA to unblock blocked arteries.
The global percutaneous transluminal angioplasty balloons catheter market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1,435.0 Million in 2021 and expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.3% during the forecast period (2021-2028).

The increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases is expected to drive the demand for percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) balloon catheters during the forecast period.
An increase in the prevalence of cardiovascular diseases is expected to drive demand for PTA balloon catheters and subsequently fuel the market growth. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in the U.S., around 659,000 people die from heart disease each year, and 18.2 million adults of age 20 and older had coronary artery disease (CAD) in 2019.

Increasing government initiatives such as financial assistance are expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period.
Increasing government initiatives to enhance product access and improve healthcare infrastructure by providing financial assistance are likely to create significant opportunities for market players and thus drive the market growth. For instance, in 2018, the Technology Development Board (TDB), Ministry of Science & Technology, and Government of India entered into an agreement with S3V Vascular Technologies Pvt. Ltd., a company manufacturing products for cardiovascular diseases. This agreement will provide financial assistance of US$ 130.3 Mn to the company.
Global Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty Balloons Catheter Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, lockdown or shutdown was imposed in many countries, which had a negative impact on the economy of the private healthcare sector globally. This lockdown also resulted in an unprecedented burden on healthcare systems worldwide.
According to an article published in 2020 by the Journal of EuroPCR and the European Association of Percutaneous Coronary Interventions (EAPCI), a link was shared to conduct a survey with EAPCI members from April 01, 2020 to April 15, 2020. According to this survey, cardiac catheterization laboratory (cath lab) personnel availability for both physicians and paramedics was affected by the pandemic. The proportion of respondents stated that at least one cath lab physician was in quarantine, infected with COVID-19, or dispatched to other departments in need such as emergency department (ED) or intensive care units (ICU), accounting for 59%, 43%, and 59%, respectively. The corresponding proportions for cath lab nurses and technicians were 52%, 36%, and 59% for quarantine, infected with covid-19 and dispatched to other departments respectively.
Thus, the above survey suggested that cardiology practices were highly affected, including limited cath lab personnel availability, reduction of procedural activities related to coronary artery disease, and others.
Global Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty Balloons Catheter Market: Restraint
The major factors that hinder the global percutaneous transluminal angioplasty balloons catheter market growth include product recalls. For instance, in October 2020, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalled a Class 2 device conquest PTA balloon dilatation catheter offered by Bard Peripheral Vascular Inc., a company manufacturing medical products. The product was recalled due to a packaging issue. The label stated that the balloon size was 6mm x 40mm, but it included a 5mm x 40mm balloon. The dilation catheter was packaged with the wrong size balloon.
Major players operating in the global percutaneous transluminal angioplasty balloons catheter market include Cook Group, Medtronic Plc., Becton, Dickinson and Company, Abbott Laboratories, Koninklijke Philips N.V., ENDOCOR GmbH, Cardinal Health, NIPRO, Terumo Corporation, Boston Scientific Corporation, Surmodics, Inc., Teleflex Incorporated, BIOTRONIK SE & Co. KG, Biomerics, Shockwave Medical Inc., Microport Scientific Corporation, Nordson Corporation, and S3V Vascular Technologies Pvt. Ltd.
Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) is a procedure that opens up blocked peripheral arteries due to plaque build-up (atherosclerosis). Cerebral arteries in the brain, carotid arteries in the neck, renal arteries leading to the kidneys, abdominal arteries, iliac arteries in the groin, infrapopliteal arteries in the knee, and femoropopliteal arteries in the thighs are the peripheral arteries most commonly affected by atherosclerosis. A catheter is inserted into an artery, commonly in the groin, in the arm or wrist. A series of x-ray images are taken to clearly view the narrowed artery after the catheter is advanced into the narrowed artery. Then, a catheter with a balloon tip is advanced into the narrowed artery. The balloon is inflated and deflated numerous times inside the artery, compressing the plaque against the arterial wall and widening the artery to enhance blood flow.
Increasing launches of angioplasty balloons catheter products in the market by key players are expected to drive the global percutaneous transluminal angioplasty balloons catheter market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in March 2021, Medtronic Plc., a company engaged in the development, manufacturing, distribution, and sales of medical devices worldwide, announced the launch of Chameleon percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) balloon catheter in Italy, Germany, South Africa, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Turkey. This device is intended for use in native or synthetic arteriovenous dialysis fistulae, as well as iliac, femoral, and renal arteries.
