Strategic Mergers and Acquisitions in the Atherectomy Devices Market is Creating a Highly Competitive Scenario

With reference to the growth trend of the medical device market, partnerships & mergers are among the key trends witnessed in the atherectomy device market in the recent years. Large companies are entering the atherectomy devices market by strategically expanding their reach through acquisitions and mergers, which is a promising trend that has arisen as a result of the substantial demand for atherectomy.

The bundling of atherectomy devices at discounted rates and supply contracts is leading to a decline in ASPs, which has hampered the growth of Drug Coated Balloon (DCB) catheters. These catheters have experienced steady cost declines in the recent years. In contrast to these market changes, another significant factor affecting the atherectomy market is the exit and entrance of co-participating companies

  • Avinger – a leading startup in the atherectomy devices – has entered the market with the adoption of new imaging technology-integrating Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) in its Pantheris product
  • On 2nd September 2014, Boston Scientific acquired the Interventional business segment from BAYER to expand its peripheral interventions division
  • In 2015, the leading medical devices company Medtronic acquired Covidien. Prior to its acquisition, Covidien acquired the atherectomy devices company ev3 in 2010
  • In February, 2015, PHILIPS –– acquired VOLCANO Corporation to boost its share in the atherectomy and peripheral vascular intervention segment as well as to expand its image-guided therapy business
    • In June 2017, Philips acquired the Spectranetics Corporation to expand its presence in the image-guided therapy business segment

Large Target Patient Pool Suffering from Arthrosclerosis, Diabetes and Obesity

There has been a noticeable rise in the number of patients suffering from arthrosclerosis, diabetes and obesity. The number of patients undergoing angioplasty, interventions and catheterisation for reducing Arterial Plaque (AP) has been on a consistent rise.

Hence, the presence of a large target patient pool suffering from Peripheral Artery Diseases (PAD) and patients that require central vascular access in ICUs, outpatients, CathLabs and operation theatres is projected to present numerous growth opportunities for manufacturers in the global atherectomy devices market.

Critical limb ischemia was the leading cause of amputation in the U.S. in 2016, wherein an estimated 4,300,000 people in the country had critical limb ischemia and a part of this population was also diagnosed with PAD. The increasing number of patients suffering from gangrene is also estimated to boost the need for atherectomy devices worldwide.

Increasing Usage of Drug-Coated Balloons (DCB) in Atherectomy Procedures

Growth in the volume of DAART procedures is expected to drive the unit sales of atherectomy devices over the study period. In July 2015, the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) upgraded the pass-through compensation for Drug-Coated Balloons (DCBs). This is expected to drive the usage of DCBs in office-based labs and outpatient settings, and will contribute directly to growth in the volume of procedures that utilise atherectomy devices.

The extensive outcomes from the one-year DEFINITIVE AR research study have established that a combination of directional atherectomy with anti-restenosis therapy (DAART) with drug-coated balloons increases patency in long lesions and lesions with severe calcifications.

The availability of combination devices is not only limited to rotational atherectomy devices, but also other atherectomy devices. For instance, orbital and directional devices are also utilized during procedures that involve plaque modification stent placement.

Growing Incidence of Peripheral Artery Diseases (PADs) and Coronary Artery Diseases (CADs)

Increasing demand for vascular and coronary intervention owing to increasing cases of Peripheral Artery Diseases (PADs) and Coronary Artery Diseases (CADs) in the recent years is expected to drive the atherectomy devices market in the near future. Cases of diabetes, critical limb ischemia and cardiovascular diseases have increased in the recent past, even among younger patients.

The increasing incidence of vascular diseases and disorders related to or caused by calcified peripheral and coronary artery, reduced blood flow and lower-limb amputation are estimated to fuel the demand for atherectomy devices over the forecast period and simultaneously projected to increase at a robust rate over the coming years.
