The global embolotherapy market stood at $3,082.9 million in 2020, and it is expected to grow at a 7.7% CAGR during 2020–2030. The growing patient pool, escalating prevalence of chronic and lifestyle-associated diseases, increasing healthcare expenditure, and improving healthcare infrastructure are some of the major factors driving the growth of the market.
COVID-19 has spread to almost every country, due to which the number of infected patients is rising, which is straining the countries’ healthcare ecosystem and resources. This is mainly on account of the intensifying demand for healthcare facilities, workers, and, most importantly, medical equipment, devices, drugs, and research studies. To deal with the pandemic, significant changes were made to surgical practice around the world. Furthermore, many general guidelines were released to establish case classification criteria in order to differentiate between elective surgeries that can be postponed and urgent procedures that require immediate intervention. This led to the shutting down of most of the surgical departments in hospitals, which led to a reduced use of products associated with embolotherapy. This posed negative impact on the embolotherapy industry.
Embolic agents dominated the embolotherapy market in 2020, based on product. The increasing use of embolic agents in various interventional radiology procedures is the primary reason for this product category's dominance on the market. Furthermore, due to the advancements in such agents, such as calibrated microspheres for bland embolization, drug-eluting microspheres, and radioactive yttrium-90 (Y-90) microspheres, for treating primary or secondary liver disease, the category is expected to grow at the higher rate over the forecast period (2021–2030).
In the embolotherapy market, transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) is expected to be the fastest-growing category during the forecast period, based on procedure. This is attributed to the proliferating demand for minimally invasive procedures and rapidly growing geriatric population. Moreover, TAE is effective and well-tolerated in patients with ruptured hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), and it is preferred over transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) and transarterial radioembolization (TARE)/ selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT).
North America dominated the market for embolotherapy in 2020, and it is expected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period as well. The increasing prevalence of indications that require embolization procedures, established healthcare ecosystem, and development of advanced embolic agents by the players operating in the region are some of the major reasons for the growth of the North American market.
Over the past few years, key players in the embolotherapy market have been focusing on the commercialization of new products for embolization. For instance, in December 2020, Terumo Medical Corporation introduced the first intrasaccular flow disruptor device in the Japanese market, under the brand name Woven EndoBridge (WEB) Embolization System, for the treatment of brain aneurysms. Moreover, in September 2019, Merit Medical Systems Inc. launched Torpedo, a proprietary gelatin foam loaded into a cartridge with an optional blunt stylet, for the smooth delivery of Torpedo to the target vasculature via a syringe.
The embolotherapy market is witnessing growth on account of the increase in the number of patients seeking embolization for the treatment of HCC, renal cell carcinoma (RCC), varicose veins, and aneurysms. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2018, aortic aneurysms were responsible for 9,923 deaths in the U.S., which shows the unmet medical need for such procedures. Hence, the increasing patient pool strengthens the demand for embolization procedures.
The prolonged exposure to four modifiable lifestyle behaviors, namely smoking, unhealthy diet, alcohol consumption, and physical inactivity, often results in chronic diseases, including stroke, diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and various types of cancer. Chronic diseases are a major healthcare burden affecting high-income as well as low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Cancer, hepatitis, and central nervous system disorders are some of the chronic diseases that require advanced treatment. Thus, the increase in the prevalence of chronic and lifestyle-associated diseases is driving the embolotherapy market globally.
