Increasing popularity of femoral arterial cardiac catheterization is expected to boost the growth of VCDs market

Global Vascular Closure Device (VCDs) market size was valued at USD over 1.0 billion in 2015. The continuous advancements in medical technologies have changed the scenario of cardiovascular procedures by the emergence of VCDs. Invention of vascular closure devices helps tackle the complications associated with vascular access site, which is the root cause of morbidity following catheterization procedures. VCDs also reduce the time needed for hemostasis and improve patient’s comfort, which in turn has bolstered the prospects for market growth.

Shift of medical facilities toward minimally invasive procedures along with the usage of imaging technologies and radiotherapy has created opportunities in this market. Deployment of imaging technologies to monitor cardiac functions will increase the demand for heart surgeries, in turn augmenting demand and sales of VCDs during the forecast period.

Rising incidents of cardiovascular disease worldwide is a major factor spurring the growth of this industry. According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular disease is the leading global cause of mortality, accounting for 17.3 million deaths per year. This number is expected to rise to around 23.6 million by 2030, which pronounces the need for the development of heart-related surgeries.

North America vascular closure device market

This market is expected to witness surging growth in the coming years because of increasing adoption of interventional cardiac catheterization, such as Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) for the treatment of narrowed coronary arteries (caused due to chronic heart diseases), by physicians. PCI involves insertion of catheter, which might cause vascular injuries, hence driving the demand for VCDs. However, complications related to VCDs, such as risk of leg ischemia and groin infection, are expected to hamper the growth to some extent over the forecast period.

Active approximators dominated the VCD industry owing to high-efficiency rate and presence of broad product portfolio in this segment

Active approximators accounted for the largest share in 2015 owing to their high efficiency. Also, many companies are focusing on this segment for release of new products. Recently, Essential Medical, Inc. developed MANTA, an active approximator that seals femoral punctures made during cardiac catheterization.

Passive approximators are the fastest-growing segment as they provide reliable and quick hemostasis of vascular access sites. Increasing number of products falling in this category, such as Angio-Seal, X-Seal, Mynx, FastSeal, is expected to boost revenue generation for passive approximator VCDs over the forecast period.

Acute care facilities accounted for the largest share in the global vascular closure device market and are expected to maintain their dominance

End-users of this technology are acute care facilities, hospitals, and clinics. The acute care facilities segment accounted for the largest share of the revenue. Increasing incidents of cardiovascular diseases that require immediate treatment have raised the popularity of VCDs in acute care treatment. Moreover, rising use of imaging technologies, such as echocardiography, in acute care for cardiovascular diseases also drives growth.

Hospitals and clinics are expected to witness substantial growth in the next 7 years owing to the increasing popularity of VCDs to reduce the need for open-heart surgical procedures, which in turn is fueling demand for this technology worldwide.

North America holds the highest revenue share of global vascular closure device market in 2015

In 2015, North America accounted for the largest share of over 33%. Factors attributed to this largest share include developed healthcare framework and presence of key players operating in this region. Moreover, increasing incidents of cardiovascular diseases in the U.S. is expected to foster the penetration of VCDs in this region.

However, Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth in the next 7 years due to the emerging economies of China and India. Furthermore, presence of untapped areas and unmet needs of patients have attracted significant attention from industry players and are potential factors boosting growth in this region. Key players of different regions are enhancing their product catalog to gain entry into untapped territories, which consequently propels growth in this region.

Market entities are embracing developing novel devices that allow safe and efficient closure of large-caliber femoral arteriotomies.

Some major players include Merit Medical Systems, Inc.; Abbott Vascular; Biotronik GMBH & CO.KG; COOK; Medtronic; Boston Scientific Corporation; C. R. Bard, Inc.; ESSENTIAL MEDICAL, Inc.; Cardinal Health; W L. Gore & Associates; ST. JUDE MEDICAL; TZ Medical, Inc.; Cardival Medical, Inc.; and Scion BioMedical. These market players are introducing novel VCDs to gain a competitive edge in the vascular closure device market. Moreover, these entities are undertaking different strategic initiatives to boost their position in the industry in the coming years.

For instance, in November 2015, Medtronic released the VenaSeal closure system in the U.S. This product received FDA approval through the Pre-market Approval (PMA) process. It is the first non-sclerosant and non-tumescent procedure that received approval to treat symptomatic venous reflux in the U.S. This success achieved by Medtronic is expected to boost revenue generation by the company, in turn, enhances its presence over the forecast period.

Similarly, in August 2013, C. R. Bard, Inc. announced the acquisition of Medafor, Inc. Medafor, Inc is a leading developer and supplier of plant-based hemostatic agents. This acquisition is projected toward reinforcing the company’s vascular closure devices portfolio for hospitals and clinics, thus providing a revenue-generating growth to the market.
