Impact Analysis of Covid-19
The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.
Thrombectomy refers to physical removal of soft thrombus from blood vessels. A thrombectomy device is easy to use and consistently opens blood vessels for the removal of blood clots. Use of thrombectomy devices can improve long-term neurological outcomes by providing higher rates of procedural recanalization. Once recanalization starts, clot softens and partially dissolves, indicating clinical recovery. Thrombectomy devices can be used in patients, where pharmacological treatments such as thrombolysis are likely to be ineffective or inappropriate for instance, in case of recent cardiovascular surgery or in patients taking oral anticoagulants.
The global thrombectomy devices market size was estimated to be valued at US$ 1,371.6 Million in 2020, and is expected to witness a CAGR of 7.2% over the forecast period (2020-2027).

The increasing launches of new products and regulatory approvals for thrombectomy devices are expected to propel the growth of the global thrombectomy devices market over the forecast period
For instance, in January 2021, Control Medical Technology announced that the U.S. FDA (Food and Drug Administration) cleared Control 11F Mechanical Thrombectomy system, which is invented to remove large blood clots from patients with deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Furthermore, in May 2020, Control Medical Technology announced that the U.S. FDA cleared Aspire MAX 7 – 11F Mechanical Thrombectomy platform to remove blood clots from peripheral vessels. Moroever, in March 2021, Vetex Medical Ltd. announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) provided 510 (K) clearance for the ReVene thrombectomy catheter. ReVene uses dual-action technology and is designed to de-clot peripheral vessels including deep vein thrombosis (DVT), in a single session without the use of thrombolytics.

Global Thrombectomy Devices Market – Market Opportunity
Rising development of advance thrombectomy devices and adoption of inorganic growth strategies like acquisition, collaboration, etc., by market players are expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in April 2019, Edwards Lifesciences Corporation acquired CAS Medical Systems, Inc., a medical technology company and developer of non-invasive monitoring of tissue oxygenation in the brain.

Global Thrombectomy Devices Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Governments are taking various initiatives to combat COVID-19. For instance, in May 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention started working with the All-of-Government and All-of-America Approach (i.e. join activities performed by diverse ministries and public administrations) in order to increase testing capacity of Covid-19, improve case detection, and contact tracing across all countries of the U.S. and to re-open America. The coronavirus or COVID-19 outbreak that started from Wuhan, China has spread across continents, affecting various industries globally. Supply of key materials such as probes required for interventional ablation have been severely disrupted due to forced quarantine, and imposed lockdowns in various countries, which has led to disruption in the link between warehouses. This shortage of thrombectomy devices and components used in the thrombectomy procedures have affected the supply chain of the global thrombectomy devices market. The COVID-19 pandemic caused major disruptions to clinical trial execution in the U.S., impacting key stakeholders across the medical devices industry. As per a publication by Medrio, May 2020, an estimated 80% of non-COVID-19 trials were stopped or interrupted as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Global Thrombectomy Devices Market: Restraint
The high cost of thrombectomy devices eventually increases its procedure cost, thereby, affecting adoption of these devices, which is further expected to hinder the market growth. In emerging economies of Africa, Latin America, and Asia Pacific adoption of such expensive procedures is low. For instance, according to data published by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), in July 2018, the cost of mechanical thrombectomy devices worldwide ranged between US$ 700 to US$ 1,719 for aspiration catheters and US$ 1,911 to US$ 6,372 for stent retrievers per unit, excluding taxes. Furthermore, side effects of thrombectomy devices include bleeding from the area, where the catheter is inserted and appearance of bruise in the area causing pain. Moreover, with the breakdown of blood clots, chemicals are released, which can temporarily affect functioning of kidney or heart. Thus, aforementioned factors are expected to hamper market growth during the forecast period.
Major players operating in the global thrombectomy devices market include LeMaitre Vascular, Inc., Boston Scientific Corporation, Control Medical Technology, Edwards Lifesciences Corporation, Johnson & Johnson, Medtronic Plc., Merit Medical Systems, Inc., Stryker Corporation, Terumo Corporation, Penumbra, Inc., Argon Medical Devices, Teleflex Incorporated, and Vetex Medical Ltd.
