Bioabsorbable Stents Market - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017-2025

Bioabsorbable stents are the new advancements in the stents technology also termed as bioresorbable stents or biodegradable stents. It is the device which is inserted into the blood vessel or internal duct to expand the blood vessel preventing its blockage. Traditionally the stents used are of metal type, the new bioabsorbable stents are made up of soluble materials. The traditional metal stents used to remain in the body for longer period or permanently restricting the vessel motion of patient implanted with the stent. The advantages of bioabsorbable stents over the conventional drug eluting stents (DES) are that they eliminate the risk of potential inflammation, late stent thrombosis, and restenosis. Once the bioabsorbable stent is dissolved, it restores the vessel to a natural state of vasodilatation and vasoconstriction.

The rising prevalence of late stent thrombosis is propelling the growth of bioabsorbable stents market

The increase in prevalence of cardiovascular diseases globally is the major driving factor for the growth of bioabsorbable stents market. Additionally, increase in risk of late stent thrombosis, and restenosis due to use of conventional drug eluting stents is stimulating the use of new advanced biodegradable stents which degrades after a period. According to American Heart Association (AHS) in 2008, the mortality rate due to late stents thrombosis was around 45%. The other factors contributing to the growth of bioabsorbable stents market includes, increase in number of geriatric population who are more prone to strokes and cardiovascular diseases requiring stents implant, technological up gradation in stents, and rising adoption rate of bioabsorbable stents. Lack of exercises, unhealthy habits, and change in lifestyle are some of the factors leading to chronic diseases and may require the stents implantation for treatment, contributing to the growth of bioabsorbable stents market. However, stringent government policies and regulations, and high cost of this stents are the restraints which might hamper the growth of bioabsorbable stents market.
