The report forecasts the global gastrointestinal stents market to grow at a CAGR of 3.89% during the period 2016-2020.
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global gastrointestinal stents market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of various gastrointestinal stents, which are segmented as follows:
- Biliary and pancreatic stents.
- Esophageal stents.
- Duodenal stents.
- Colonic stents.
The advances in materials, design, and technology for stents have enabled the introduction of specially designed stents, which are used for specific conditions. The recent materials used in the development of non-vascular stents such as gastrointestinal stents are poly lactic acid-glycolic acid, polycaprolactone, and poly acryl amine. These biodegradable materials have advantages such as the elimination of stent removal and biocompatibility. The use of self-expandable metal stents for treating perforations and anastomotic leaks seems to be promising for SEMSs, which began their evolution with plastic. These may soon evolve into biodegradable stents.
According to the report, gerontology diseases disproportionately affect the aging population, with prominent gastrointestinal disorders such as diverticulosis, bowel diseases, gastrointestinal malignancies, and urinary and fecal related problems. The changes in lifestyle like the increase in unhealthy diet and physical inactivity will result in raised blood pressure, blood glucose, lipids, and obesity. In the past few years, there has been a rise in morbidity and mortality from chronic diseases such as esophageal cancer, colorectal cancer, rectal cancer, and gastrointestinal related critical disorders.
Further, the report states that the gastrointestinal devices are classified as class III devices and are subjected to high risk, and regulatory authorities have enforced a stringent regulatory framework and labeling requirement for medical devices. Medical devices are always considered high risk and undergo safety examination to demonstrate medical efficacy before they are granted approval.
