Cardiac Assist Devices Market

2019 Analysis and Review of Cardiac Assist Devices Market by Product - Ventricular Assist Devices (VAD and Intra-aortic Balloon Pump for 2019 - 2029

Ventricular Assist Devices Remain Bestselling Category

Accounting for over 60% of the total revenue share, ventricular assist devices continue to stay in demand against intra-aortic balloon pumps. Increasing demand for left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) for excellent outcomes when compared to medical therapy is also significantly contributing to growth of this category. Moreover, ventricular assist devices will continue to be the product of choice in the future, as engineers and clinicians are envisioning the next-generation of devices that would be fully implantable on both left and right sides of the heart and adaptable to the unique physiologic demands of each patient.

North America at Forefront, Opportunities Abound in APEJ

North America continues to offer greater opportunities, with an army of digital health technologies joining the forces of conventional clinical tools in cardiology. Established reimbursement policies and growing frequency of innovation in medical devices in the region are working to the advantage of market players. Market consolidation in Asian Pacific countries, especially China and India, will remain a key to gaining distinct competitive edge, given consideration to significant advancements in healthcare space and growing government spending on advanced medical technologies to improve survival and overall quality of life in patients with advanced heart failure.

Minimally Invasive Device Insertion Techniques in Demand

Amidst robots finding their way into operating rooms, greater emphasis has been put on minimally invasive surgical intervention, thereby driving innovation in the cardiac assist devices. In recent years, emergence of state-of-the-art healthcare technologies has fueled the uptake of minimally invasive surgery for faster and better outcomes. Market players are the major step forward by creating smaller centrifugal pump of these devices that allow less-invasive implantation procedure. A shift from on-pump to off-pump cardiac assist device placement is further likely to bringing significant in device design, surgical techniques, and post-operative management of several cardiovascular diseases.

How Growth will Unfold

Adoption of cardiac assist devices by hospital pharmacies, especially in North America and Western Europe, is expected to remain strong going forward. Whereas, growing application in ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs) in Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa is expected to result in increased market share. An ever-increasing percentage of total surgical procedures occurring in free-standing ASCs, in the view of faster outcomes with fewer patients requiring hospitalization, has been influencing market players to capitalize on these end users. However, it is pertinent to note that several risks associated with cardiac assist devices, such as pump thrombus, infections, and suction events are representing a potential threat for the market players.
