US Cardiac Implants Market

US demand to reach $16.4 billion in 2012

US demand for cardiac implants will increase 8.8 percent annually to $16.4 billion in 2012. Evolving demographic and epidemiological patterns, along with the introduction of new and improved products, will promote growth. Based on aging population trends, the number of persons afflicted with one or more heart conditions is forecast to reach 73 million in 2012, up 1.7 percent per year from 2007. Implants are more effective than pharmaceuticals in treating, managing or preventing such cardiovascular disorders as arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction, peripheral artery disease, stroke and valvular heart disease.

The market for cardiac implants is expected to recover from a sharp decline in coronary drug-eluting stent sales that began in mid-2006 and continued into the fourth quarter of 2007. This decline was due to a number of reports that linked the devices to a slightly greater risk of thrombosis in some post-angioplasty patients. Although the reported risk was only onehalf of one percent greater than for heart patients who received alternative therapies (i.e., angioplasty with bare-metal stents, coronary bypass surgery, medications), it prompted many physicians to discontinue using drug-eluting stents. This trend will change as new generation drug-eluting stents with smaller struts and a greatly reduced risk of complications reach the market over the next year.

ICDs, CRT devices will remain dominant types

Cardiac implants extend into several product groups. Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) and related cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices together with their accessories generate the largest demand, followed by various types of stents. These two product groups will continue to lead cardiac implant sales based on new product introductions, widening eligibility for private and public health insurance coverage, expanding numbers of new patients, and diminishing safety concerns. Providing the most effective therapy for bradycardia, pacemakers and accessories will continue to serve a large, expanding US market. However, growth opportunities for these devices will decelerate over the long term as they have already achieved a high level of market penetration.

Heart-related grafts will provide strong growth opportunities as improvements in stenting systems create new safe and effective devices for treating aortic aneurysms, peripheral arterial diseases and stroke. Demand for heart valves will benefit from advances in tissue engineering, which will improve the safety, performance and longevity of animalderived xenografts. Heart valve repair products, consisting of annuloplasty rings and bands, will also fare well in the marketplace as new cardiac diagnostics enable valvular heart diseases to be detected in earlier stages before complete valve replacement becomes necessary. Less favorably, strong growth in the market for tissue valves and valve repair products will be partially offset by decreasing sales of mechanical valves.

Demand for embolic protection devices will rise at a strong pace as many more heart patients undergo procedures that pose an elevated risk of deep vein thrombosis and embolisms. The market for ventricular-assist devices will continue to grow moderately, spurred by widening applications in the management of pretransplant and late-stage heart conditions. Based on their ability to detect heart attack symptoms earlier and save lives, implantable heart monitors will register strong sales growth over the long term.

Study coverage

Cardiac Implants is a new industry study that presents historical demand data (1997, 2002, 2007) plus forecasts for 2012 and 2017 for cardiac implant products by type and indication.
