Growing prevalence of peripheral vascular and coronary artery diseases has fuelled demand for scoring balloon catheter devices in the healthcare sector. Moreover, increasing demand for medical devices equipped with enhanced technology is projected to impact the global market growth of scoring balloon catheter positively. According to a recently published report, the global scoring balloon catheter market will reflect sluggish CAGR growth over the forecast period, 2017 – 2022.
Factors Propelling Global Market Growth
Increasing prevalence of coronary artery diseases has led to an upsurge in demand for scoring balloon catheter devices in the healthcare sector. Healthcare manufacturers prefer scoring balloon catheter devices over the conventional devices for the treatment of the coronary artery diseases attributed to limitations such as uncontrolled dissections including bailout stenting and insufficient luminal expansion. Moreover, healthcare professionals prefer using scoring balloon catheter devices over conventional catheter devices for treatment of peripheral vascular diseases. Fibrocalcific lesion is resistant to dialation through conventional balloon catheter devices attributed to inadequate luminal expansion. Due to these factors, manufacturers are adopting scoring technology for the production of the scoring balloon catheter devices in the healthcare sector. These factors are likely to contribute towards the global market growth of scoring balloon catheter positively.
On the other hand, growing risks regarding artery collapse during the catheterization treatment is projected to influence demand for scoring balloon catheter devices negatively. Moreover, increasing risks of infection due to the treatment of catheterization is projected to pose significant challenges for scoring balloon catheter devices in the global market by 2022 – end. These factors are expected to inhibit the global market growth of scoring balloon catheter devices during the projected period.
Nylon to Represent a Leading Market
