U.S. fractional flow reserve market

Furthermore, rising geriatric population is poised to keep the demand for fractional flow reserve high. Old aged individuals are more prone to cardiovascular diseases and chronic diseases such as diabetes. Type II diabetes can further lead to development of fatty cells in coronary artery, which can cause blockage, thereby, causing stroke or heart attacks.

Growing incidence of coronary artery diseases and diabetes in the U.S. is working in favor of the overall market. Diabetes cases is on a rise due to unhealthy eating habits of the populace in the country, which is further leading to obesity and associated diseases. For instance, in 2016, according to WHO, there were more than 1.9 billion overweight adults globally. In addition, rising adoption of fractional flow reserve system in conjugation with OCT, for patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases, especially in the U.S., is likely to broaden the consumer base in near future.

Product Insights

FFR monitoring systems accounted for the dominant share in the market in 2018 owing to their extensive usage in diagnostic cardiovascular procedures. In addition, the segment will retain its position through 2025, due to technological advancements in the monitoring systems. For instance, in 2017, Fysicon launched QMAPP Hemodynamic Monitoring System post U.S. FDA approval. This device has vital patient monitoring parameters as well as has 32 bipolar intra-cardiac channels in electrophysiology procedures.

The market for FFR guidewires is estimated to register a healthy CAGR over the forecast period owing to rising usage for coronary artery disease diagnosis globally. For instance, in 2015 according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 370,000 individuals died owing to coronary artery disease in the U.S. Additionally, aged people are more prone to cardiac disorders. Therefore, widening base of geriatrics is benefiting the growth of the segment.

Application Insights

Single-vessel coronary artery disease (CAD) led the fractional flow reserve market in terms of revenue in 2018, owing to wide application of the device in CAD, coupled with rise in geriatric population. Moreover, growing partnerships among key players in order to increase market penetration, for instance, collaboration of GE Healthcare and Medis in 2017, is anticipated to stimulate the growth of the overal market.

Global fractional flow reserve market

Furthermore, multi-vessel coronary artery disease (CAD) is projected to post a higher CAGR over the forecast period as this disease is a matured phase of single vessel CAD. A person suffering from single-vessel CAD is highly likely to have multi-vessel CAD in the near future if proper treatment and medications are not taken. 

Regional Insights

North America accounted for over 41.0% of the overall market revenue in 2018. The dominance of the region can be attributed to favorable government policies for medical device penetration and presence of well-developed healthcare infrastructure. In addition, rising mergers and acquisitions by key players are poised to keep level of competition high in near future.

For instance, in 2017, Abbott acquired St. Jude Medical, which has aided the company in expanding branded generic pharmaceuticals, medical devices, nutritionals, and diagnostics product portfolio. Furthermore, Boston Scientific acquired Augmenix, Inc. which had developed Space OAR hydrogel to minimize side effects after receiving radio therapy in prostate cancer patients.

The Asia Pacific market is expected to witness lucrative growth in the coming years due to increase in diabetes and cardiovascular diseases cases as well as rising disposable income. Additionally, introduction of favorable laws for medical devices adoption is also estimated to support the growth of the regional market. For instance, in Korea an agreement was implemented on March 15, 2012. This agreement made medical devices duty free, thereby increasing adoption.

Fractional Flow Reserve Market Share Insights

The industry is marked by presence of various small and large companies. It is competitive in nature and dominated by market players such as OPSENS Medical, Abbott Laboratories, Boston Scientific, Bracco S.p.A., Koninklijke Philips N.V., Siemens Healthineers, GE Healthcare, Medtronic plc, B Braun B. Braun Melsungen, and Terumo Medical Corporation.

Companies operating in the market are focussing on launching novel products as well as expanding their business outreach. For instance, in December 2017, B. Braun Interventional Systems Inc. established a subsidiary in Zambia to meet customer requirements by offering individuals with broader product portfolio.
