Varicose veins can be aesthetically displeasing. They become problematic only in case they cause pain, aching, swelling, and considerable discomfort. In severe cases, they may rupture and can lead to ulcers. Available options for the treatment of varicose veins have evolved over the last few years. Majority of the private healthcare providers are offering improved minimally invasive techniques.

In addition, older population is more prone to the development of varicose veins. Effect of aging on structure and functions of the veins is found to be considerable. Over the age of 50, one out of every two people is affected by varicose vein. Overweight people and pregnant women are also susceptible to varicose veins. Some of the treatments that are available in the market include sclerotherapy, laser therapy, and radiofrequency ablation. Of these, schlerotherapy is preferred as a first-line of treatment for varicose veins, spider veins and reticular veins.

Varicose veins surgeries are likely to undergo significant changes in the near future. Surgery has been largely replaced by noninvasive options for the treatment of varicose veins. Due to the risk of infections associated with invasive surgeries, preference for noninvasive surgeries has increased in the recent years.

In addition to the risk of infection, noninvasive methods also involve minimum hospital stays, thus saving time and cost. Increase in number of surgeons are now adopting foam sclerotherapy, endovenous laser treatment, and radiofrequency ablation over conventional surgical practices.

Type Insights

Sclerotherapy is a noninvasive technique which involves injecting a foam sclerosant in the veins. It is less painful as it involves no cutting of veins. The recovery of the patients is faster as no hospital admission is needed. Moreover, in the U.S., Medicare provides coverage to the patients undergoing sclerotherapy treatment for varicose veins. In 2016, more than 375,000 sclerotherapy procedures were conducted in the U.S. Insurance coverage can increase the adoption of schlerotherapy in the coming years.

Sclerotherapy segment accounted for the largest market share in the year 2017 due to its advantages including less bruising and scarring; no need for sedation; no need for prolonged hospital stay; simple follow-up treatments; and positive reimbursement policies. The usage of foam sodium tetradecyl sulfate (STS) in schlerotherapy has innovated the treatment and provides long-term success.

Various organizations such as the British Association of Sclerotherapists (BAS) undertake initiatives annually for raising awareness and increase treatment rate of varicose veins. Increase in number of approvals is also contributing to the market growth. In February 2015, the FDA reviewed data for the premarket approval of VenaSeal system. The FDA approval for VenaSeal system included from analysis of results from three clinical studies. Medtronic announced that new CPT codes may aid in getting positive coverage for its VenaSeal closure device from public and private insurers in the U.S. in November 2017.

The endovenous ablation segment is likely to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. Endovenous ablation procedure is preferred over the conventional varicose vein procedures such as surgical stripping and ligation, as the procedure is minimally invasive and associated with lesser complications. Moreover, various market players are focusing on the development of efficient and technologically advanced products which is likely to boost the market growth.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the market in terms of revenue share in the year 2017 as it has a large population base, which is aesthetically conscious. People are willing to undergo cosmetic procedures owing to the evident results and safety. North America is an early adopter of technology and the demonstration of safety and efficacy of laser treatments has helped in reducing the stigma attached to cosmetic procedures and has helped gain social acceptance for laser procedures, especially by men.

The introduction of advanced technology for vein treatment is also boosting the market. In May 2016, Navarro opened a vein center in the U.S. with a vision to educate the community about chronic venous insufficiency & varicose veins and the proper treatment for varicose veins. About 30 million Americans suffer from varicose vein each year and less than 10% of the population seeks treatment.

These guidelines offer recommendations for management of chronic venous diseases, based on grade system. Grading of severity of varicose veins helps care providers and insurance providers to communicate with one another. For instance, while referring patients to vein specialists, a general physician can effectively communicate the severity of varicose veins. Patients can be classified into different groups based on the severity of their varicose veins problems.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing market segment in the coming years due to the presence of a large elderly population, increasing disposable income, and rising awareness about these procedures. This market is highly diverse due to varying regulatory factors, which results in the difference of availability of products in different countries.
