Key factors responsible for the market growth include the rapid increase in the geriatric population prone to medical conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and end-stage heart failure. These diseases are expected to increase the risk of organ failures or damage, thereby promoting the adoption of Ventricular Assist Devices (VADs).

U.S. Ventricular Assist Devices Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The U.S. accounted for over 35% of the global ventricular assist devices market in 2023. Economic development, advanced facilities for R&D, universities & hospitals, and the presence of key medical device manufacturers are factors driving product development and commercialization in this region. Unhealthy lifestyle habits and high-risk factors such as reduced physical activity, increased consumption of junk food & alcohol, and use of tobacco are key factors leading to the high global prevalence rate of cardiac diseases. The impact of these factors is high, especially in developed economies like the U.S.

The U.S. accounts for the majority of the global obese population, which is one of the high-impact-rendering factors for the increase in cardiovascular diseases. The high prevalence of cardiovascular disease in the region coupled with the presence of technologically advanced healthcare infrastructure is anticipated to boost treatment rates, thereby propelling market growth in the coming years. Furthermore, the presence of a favorable reimbursement structure is also expected to drive the market by increasing the treatment rate and significantly reducing out-of-pocket expenses.

According to the World Bank health expenditure report estimates, the U.S. allocates over 17% of its GDP toward healthcare, which is one of the key factors attributed to the presence of advanced healthcare options in the region. In the U.S., CMS provides health coverage to people suffering from chronic disease or those diagnosed with a life-threatening disease. It offers National Coverage Determination (NCD), which states whether the payment for a medical device, item, or service (reimbursement) will be made, by recognizing the services or the item as necessary and reasonable. These factors are projected to positively impact the U.S. market growth. 

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The industry is indicating moderate growth at an accelerating pace. This is due to the presence of several key players in the region investing in various growth strategies such as R&D activities, product launches, partnerships, and product expansion.

U.S. Ventricular Assist Devices Market Concentration & Characteristics

Players in the ventricular assist device industry undertake the strategy of product launch and expansion to strengthen their product portfolios and offer diverse technologically advanced and innovative products to their customers. This also increases their geographic presence and the outreach of their products in the industry. This strategy is the most prominently adopted strategy by companies to attract more customers in the industry. As a result of continual investments being made to upgrade technology, new product developments are expected to attract investments from private equity players and venture capitalists; thus, technology is expected to be a key driving factor for industry expansion over the forecast period.

There are an increasing number of mergers & acquisitions (M&A), partnerships, and collaborations in this industry to gain more market share. In addition, an increasing number of collaborations among hospitals, manufacturers, and insurance companies on the expansion of armamentariums for mechanical circulatory support options for infants is expected to propel industry growth over the forecast period.

Legal regulations enforced by various governments ensure data recording, related to product batch numbers, product recall, and compliance with other regional laws. The regulatory framework ensures that anti-competitive trade practices, misleading marketing activities, and violation of other legal requirements attract stringent punishment. However, favorable government initiatives and funding from several research organizations are driving the industry. The scarcity of heart donors and increasing demand for heart transplants are also aiding the adoption of VADs.

Design Insights

The implantable ventricular assist device segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 71.52% in 2023. Increasing preference for long-term treatment methods among patients who are not eligible for a heart transplant is driving segment growth. However, risks associated with the adoption of these devices, such as severe bleeding, and infection at the incision site are a few key challenges for the market players.

U.S. Ventricular Assist Devices Market share and size, 2023

The transcutaneous ventricular assist devices segment is expected to witness a considerable CAGR over the forecast period. The scarcity of suitable donor organs, along with a rising number of patients waiting for a heart transplant, has resulted in significant adoption of alternate techniques, which include mechanical circulatory support. A transcutaneous VAD, when compared to an implantable device, is a short-term VAD used during or postcardiac surgery. Patients with TVADs are confined to the hospital bed due to the external setup of the VAD control unit. This limits the adoption of these devices among patients, limiting revenue growth.

Product Insights

The left ventricular assist devices (LVAD) device segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 64.63% in 2023. Shortage of organ donors and increased demand of LVADs for bridge to transplantation in patients suffering from end-stage heart failure are expected to positively impact market growth over the forecast period. In addition, these devices are featured with advanced ventricular assist device technology with increased reliability and durability, which are potentially beneficial for long-term support. In addition, increasing number of FDA approvals for novel devices coupled with growing acceptance of these devices for destination therapy is expected to boost usage rates.

The bi-ventricular assist devices (BiVAD) segment is projected to witness the highest growth rate over the forecast period. These devices are mainly used for the treatment of severe congestive heart failures for medium- to long-term mechanical support. Furthermore, patients awaiting transplantation are often advised a biventricular assist device implantation as compared to left & right ventricular assist device implantations.

Type of Flow Insights

The non-pulsatile or continuous flow segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 89.81% in 2023. This can be attributed to the rising demand for miniature ventricular assist devices with high durability and energy efficiency. The demand for continuous flow type devices with minimal noise and fewer rotating parts has resulted in their increased demand and popularity among physicians & researchers. They offer several mechanical benefits over pulsatile-flow devices, including smaller size, longer endurance, and simplicity of implantation.

The pulsatile segment is expected to witness the highest growth rate over the forecast period. According to the CDC, in September 2020, nearly 6.7% or 18.2 million adults had critical congenital artery disease, and it has been estimated that approximately 2 in 10 adults aged 65 & below are likely to die from this disease. Pulsatile mechanical ventricular assist devices became a standard treatment for patients with severe heart failure as a bridge to transplantation or in part as a rehabilitation aid. The market is witnessing the entry of new players that are focused on developing innovative products.

Application Insights

The destination therapy segment accounted for the largest revenue share of nearly 50% in 2023. This can be attributed to an increase in the incidence of end-stage heart failure and cardiovascular diseases. In addition, the shortage of donor organs and the rapidly expanding pool of patients waiting for heart transplantation have led to an increase in the demand for VADs to address the shortfall of heart transplants. This, in turn, is anticipated to positively impact market growth.

The bridge to transplantation segment is projected to witness the highest growth rate over the forecast period. Ventricular assist devices are used as bridge-to-transplantation devices to help patients stabilize their physiological stress during transplantation surgeries. VADs in the bridge to transplantation are used for a brief period (2 to 6 months only) in stabilizing patients from the physiological stress of the transplantation surgical process. Furthermore, VAD use in bridge to transplantation is gaining wide-scale adoption and acceptance owing to the enhancements in technology and a decline in VAD-related complications.
