Latest research on“World Structural Heart Devices Market Overview, Analysis, Demand, Report, Trends, Growth and Research – Structural Heart Devices Market by Product (Structural Heart Repair Devices and Replacement Valves), Age Group (Pediatric and Adult), and Indication (Atrial Septal Defect (ASD), Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO), Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD), and Aortic Valve Stenosis) – Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2014-2022”

A structural heart disease is a non-coronary defect of the heart, thus not affecting the blood vessels in the heart. Most of the structural heart conditions are present since birth (congenital), but these can also be acquired later in life, owing to wear & tear from infection. Advancements in the medical field have replaced the open heart surgical procedures with minimally invasive procedures, such as transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and transcatheter mitral valve repair (TMVR).

Rise in incidence of structural heart diseases (aortic stenosis and mitral regurgitation); technological advancements; development of innovative repair devices, such as annuloplasty rings, occluders; and increase in demand for minimally invasive techniques are factors that drive the structural heart devices market. However, high cost of surgeries and stringent government regulations hamper this growth. Conversely, increase in focus of key players on R&D activities of structural heart devices and upsurge in demand for quick and long-lasting procedures among the geriatric population are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the players in the structural heart devices market.

According to RB analysis, the structural heart repair devices segment held nearly half of the global structural heart devices market size in 2015, owing to increase in prevalence of structural heart diseases. In addition, advancements in repair devices and development of innovative products have further fueled the market growth.

LAMEA structural heart devices industry

Rise in incidence of aortic stenosis coupled with rapid adoption of structural heart devices drives the growth of the structural heart devices market in LAMEA. In addition, increased focus of structural heart devices vendors in emerging markets (such as Asia-Pacific and LAMEA) is set to further contribute to the growth of this market. Lack of healthcare facilities and increased need for treatment devices for structural heart diseases have increased the penetration of major players in the Middle East. Nevertheless, the structural heart devices market growth is driven by improving healthcare infrastructure coupled with rise in disposable income.

Rise in number of patients suffering from structural heart diseases

An increase in demand for structural heart devices has been witnessed, owing to the rise in number of patients suffering from structural heart diseases. These disorders are generally congenital; hence, they occur very commonly in a newborn. For instance, as per The Nemours Foundation, about 1 in every 100 newborns suffers from congenital heart defects, which can range from mild to severe. According to Micro Interventional Devices, Inc., in the U.S., about 60 million people, i.e., about 20-25% adult population suffer from structural heart defects. As per the Center for Structural Heart Disease at Henry Ford Hospital (CSHD), in Henry Ford Hospital, about 250,000 patients are diagnosed with mitral valve diseases annually. Moreover, in Europe, the prevalence of aortic stenosis is 1.75 million. These statistics clearly highlight the need for structural heart treatment devices, thus providing impetus to develop new techniques for repair and replacement of heart defects. In 2007, TAVR procedures were approved in Europe and in 2012 in the U.S. Moreover, around 80,000 patients undergo mitral valve repair or valve replacement surgery each year.

Technological advancements in structural heart devices industry

The upgraded treatments for improving quality of life and increased life expectancy fuel the demand for technologically advanced structural heart devices, such as advanced tissue heart valves useful in structural heart repair and replacement. Further, with the advent of tissue valves used in tissue aortic valve replacement, the quality of life for patients suffering from aortic regurgitation has improved. For instance, in April 2016, launch of St. Jude’s Trifecta valve with Glide Technology (GT), an advanced tissue valve, has made options available for patients in need of aortic valve replacement. Technological innovations result in change in heart-related disorder treatment patterns, lowering the burden of heart disease. Novel tissue valves and mechanical heart valves are widely used to treat structural heart defects with greater longevity.

Growth in demand for minimally invasive procedures

Structural heart devices and techniques are minimally invasive in nature, and are thus highly preferred over other techniques, such as open heart surgeries. Mitral valve replacement, aortic valve replacement, and prosthetic heart valve replacement procedures are minimally invasive procedures widely used by experts in cardiology to treat structural heart diseases. For instance, as per Center for Structural Heart Disease at Henry Ford Hospital (CSHD), around 80,000 patients undergo mitral valve repair or valve replacement surgery annually. Moreover, innovative developments in structural heart devices and procedures, such as aortic valve replacement valves, left arterial appendage closure devices, and advent of tissue or biological valves, are anticipated to provide promising growth opportunities for the market.

High cost and risk associated with the treatment procedures

High cost of advanced structural heart devices and risk associated with the procedures are major constraints for market growth. The adoption rate of technologically advanced structural heart devices is low, especially in emerging economies, as these devices are more expensive than their traditional counterparts. For instance, as per Edwards Lifesciences, cost of SAPIEN transcatheter heart valve with the RetroFlex 3 Transfemoral System is $32,500, which is highly expensive for common people. Furthermore, risks associated with these devices are stroke, kidney failure, and gastrointestinal complications, which are observed after mitral valve replacement procedure.

Stringent approval process for structural heart devices

Approval processes for structural heart devices in most of the countries are stringent, as these are highly specialized devices that are introduced in the body. According to the FDA, structural heart devices are classified as class III devices, whereas these devices fall under class IIa (heart valve occluders and tester) and class III (for prosthetic and biological heart valves) category of CE mark classification. In addition, the process is time consuming and requires high investment. According to Advanced Medical Technology Association, it is estimated that about 77% and 80% of the total cost of commercializing a class II and class III medical device, respectively, in the market is spent at FDA-linked approval stages.
