According to this market research report, Abbott Laboratories, Boston Scientific, Cardinal Health, and Medtronic are the key players in this market space. It also segments the market by product (occlusion devices and distal filters), treatment procedure (coronary artery treatment, carotid artery treatment, and peripheral artery treatment), end users (ASCs, hospitals, and physicians’ offices), and geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Market outlook for embolic protection devices

The global market for embolic protection devices will exhibit impressive growth during the estimated period and will be positively affected by the preference for minimally invasive procedures with improved medical imaging. At present, medical facilities from across the globe have started shifting toward minimally invasive procedures that involve the use of radiotherapy and imaging technologies; thus, expanding the treatment options for peripheral vascular diseases (PVDs), such as deep vein thrombosis. If left untreated, PVD can cause heart attacks and strokes. To treat the disease, physicians perform angioplasty or insert stents in the blood vessels through small incisions during minimally invasive surgeries. Such methods help minimize trauma and pain and reduce the risks of infection in the blood vessels. According to Technavio’s market research analyst, the global embolic protection devices market will grow at a CAGR of almost 10% by 2020.

In terms of geography, it is estimated that the Americas will continue its market dominance until the end of 2020 and will account for almost 49% of the overall market share by the end of the forecast period. Much of this region’s growth can be attributed to the extensive use of embolic protection devices through distal or proximal insertion with subsequent aspiration for angiographic procedures. The volume of angiography is increasing due to the adoption of these devices for minimally invasive procedures, with most people preferring cath-labs for such techniques.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

At present, this market is growing steadily and is envisaged to exhibit rapid growth over the next few years due to the presence of many global and regional vendors that offer a wide range of embolic protection devices. In 2015, Medtronic, Abbott Laboratories, Boston Scientific, and Cardinal Health were the leading contributors to the market, with Medtronic offering products such as SpiderFX distal filter embolic protection device, MO.MA Ultra proximal cerebral protection system, GuardWire temporary occlusion and aspiration system proximal cerebral protection device, and FiberNet embolic protection device for both balloon occlusion and distal filters.

Key vendors in this market are -

  • Abbott Laboratories
  • Boston Scientific
  • Cardinal Health
  • Medtronic

Other prominent vendors in this market are Abiomed, Advansource Biomaterials, AGA Medical, Allium Medical, AngioDynamics, AngioSlide, Atrium Medical, Biophan Technologies, Biosense Webster, Cardiac Science, CardiacAssist, Cardica, Cardio-Flow, Claret Medical, Contego Medical, Cook Group, Cryolife, Edward Lifesciences, Innovative Cardiovascular Solutions, Keystone Heart, and Transverse Medical.

Product-based segmentation and analysis of the embolic protection devices

  • Occlusion devices
  • Distal filters

During 2015, the distal filters segment dominated this market and accounted for approximately 80% of the total market share. During the stent procedure, distal filters allow the blood to circulate through the filter to collect the embolic debris. Medtronic's SpiderFX embolic protection device is one such device that is available in the market.

Segmentation by end-users and analysis of the embolic protection devices

  • ASCs
  • Hospitals
  • Physicians’ offices

This market research has observed that the ASCs segment dominated this market during 2015 and accounted for more than 50% of the total market share. ASCs provide a wide range of medical services and conduct surgical and non-surgical procedures in out-patient settings. This helps minimize the medical expenses and the duration of hospital stays.
