Increasing Prevalence of Cardiovascular Diseases Drives Global Cardiac Microcatheter Market

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cardiovascular diseases are the most prominent cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. cardiovascular diseases include cerebrovascular disease, coronary heart disease, and rheumatic heart disease. Major lifestyle factors causing cardiovascular diseases and related difficulties are tobacco consumption, unhealthy diet, and physical inactivity, among others. The other risk factors related to cardiovascular diseases are high blood pressure, diabetes, and elevated cholesterol levels. Heart attacks and strokes are mainly caused by fatty deposits that block blood vessels, disrupting blood flow to the heart or brain. According to a report from American Heart Association, in 2020, ~19 million deaths were attributed to cardiovascular diseases globally, which amounted to an increase of 18.7% from 2010. Ischemic heart disease was the most common cause of cardiovascular mortality, claiming more than 9.4 million lives and 185 million disability-adjusted life-years in 2020, while ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, hypertensive heart disease, and rheumatic heart disease rounded out to be the top 5 leading causes.

According to American Heart Association Inc., the cardiovascular diseases -related deaths recorded in 2020 increased to 928,741 from 874,613 in 2019. Between 2018 and 2019, direct and indirect costs of total cardiovascular diseases were US$ 407.3 billion (US$ 251.4 billion in direct costs and US$ 155.9 billion in lost productivity/mortality). In 2020, coronary heart disease was the leading cause (41.2%) of deaths attributable to cardiovascular diseases in the US, followed by stroke (17.3%), high blood pressure (12.9%), heart failure (9.2%), diseases of the arteries (2.6%), and other cardiovascular diseases (16.8%). Also, the World Heart Federation predicts more than 23 million cardiovascular diseases -related deaths per year by 2030.

According to a study “Cardiovascular Diseases in Central and Eastern Europe,” published in 2020 by European Society of Cardiology, cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death in Europe, accounting for 45% of all deaths. Cardiovascular risk factors are highly prevalent in Central and Western Europe, owing to smoking habits and heavy alcohol consumption rates, especially among men. More than 4 million Europeans die yearly from cardiovascular diseases, mainly due to coronary artery disease and stroke. The Middle East too has a high prevalence rate of cardiovascular diseases, which has surged the need for various interventions such as health education, lifestyle counseling, screening, and treatment in this region. According to the World Heart Federation, cardiovascular disease is the primary cause of death in the Middle East & North Africa, accounting for more than a third of all deaths or 1.4 million people annually. Furthermore, over the past 30 years, cardiovascular diseases deaths have increased by 48%, accounting for 40% and 10% of deaths in Oman and Somalia, respectively. In 2021, age-standardized cardiovascular diseases mortality rates in the Middle East and North Africa ranged from 134.2 to 600.2 per 100,000 people. Therefore, the high prevalence of cardiovascular diseases is boosting the cardiac microcatheter market.

Recent Developments

Inorganic and organic strategies such as mergers and acquisitions are highly adopted by companies in the cardiac microcatheter market. A few recent key market developments are listed below:

  • In 2019, Navitian, a new coronary microcatheter from iVascular, received the CE mark approval. The device was approved to facilitate, guide, and support a guidewire while accessing the coronary system, exchanging guidewires, and injecting radiopaque contrast media or saline solutions.
  • In 2020, Acist Medical Systems Inc., a Bracco Group Company, announced the global launch of its Acist Navvus II Rapid Exchange fractional flow reserve (FFR) microcatheter, the second-generation microcatheter for use with its Acist RXi Rapid Exchange FFR System. FFR measurements assess arterial lesion severity and the intervention strategies in diagnosing and treating coronary artery disease.
  • In 2021, Baylis Medical unveiled the first clinical case of the JLL 2-French electrophysiology microcatheter in Europe. The launch enables physicians to reach previously inaccessible areas of the heart for procedure mapping, thereby introducing the smallest diagnostic catheter available in the European market. The 2F microcatheter also allows mapping and pacing in smaller anatomy, such as the Vein of Marshall.
  • In 2023, Al Qassimi Hospital in the UAE collaborated with Philips in order to allow access to Ultra-Low Contrast Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (ULC-PCI) to more patients in the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa. The new ULC-PCI Interventional Cardiology course at Al Qassimi Hospital is part of a global education program by Philips to share knowledge regarding the technology that can offer low-contrast, minimally invasive treatment for coronary artery disease, thereby spreading awareness among patients.
