Changing demographics are spurring dynamic growth in the interventional radiology market. The angioplasty balloon, coronary stent, vascular closure, and other associated equipment markets will experience healthy growth over the next 5 years.
Persons over the age of 65 will be a major segment of the population in coming years. Chronic diseases and unhealthy habits such as smoking, lack of exercise, and poor diet are resulting in an epidemic of obesity and concomitant cardiac conditions. These factors and others will drive demand for interventional radiology and vascular products to address various vascular conditions including peripheral vascular diseases such as peripheral artery and chronic venous insufficiency, endovascular embolization, and peripheral recanalization.
