The report states that the growing prevalence of coronary artery diseases (CAD) has propelled the demand for coronary stents. The global coronary stents market is expected to be boosted by the rapid growth of geriatric population and the rise in the number of people suffering from obesity. The increasing uptake of technologically advanced coronary stents such as bio-absorbable stents will further augment the market growth during the forecast period.

However, the high product cost of coronary stents and the lack of efficient reimbursement system will hamper the market growth. The high risk of in-stent and late-stent restenosis and thrombosis will also negatively affect the market. The global coronary stents market has a huge opportunity to grow with the introduction of novel technologies in clinical trials that will address various requirements of the patient pool. In the coming years, the market will witness lucrative opportunities across the emerging markets of Latin America, Asia Pacific, and Africa.

On the basis of product type, the report segments the global coronary stents market into drug eluting stents (DES), bare metal stents, and bio-absorbable stents. The drug eluting stents segment dominates the overall market and accounted for 55-60% of the market in 2010. The growing adoption of drug eluting stents can be attributed to the rising demand for minimally invasive procedures. By 2019, the segment is expected to be worth US$5.3 bn, expanding at a CAGR of 9.54% during the period between 2013 and 2019.
