The rising incidence of valvular heart diseases is augmenting the growth of the global heart valve repair and replacement market. According to the research analyst at Arizton, around 40%-60% of patients with severe cardiac conditions do not undergo treatment and surgeries due to lack of awareness about the disease condition, the high cost of treatment, and lack of skilled surgeons in the heart valve repair market. The leading vendors and healthcare professionals are engaged in various awareness initiatives and campaigns to create awareness among public and patients about the benefits of these procedures and availability of various advanced minimally invasive techniques for treating valvular diseases. Furthermore, the increasing prevalence of valvular disorders such as aortic stenosis, mitral regurgitation, pulmonary stenosis, tricuspid regurgitation, and congenital heart defects will boost the demand for cardio valve repair and replacement surgeries. The increasing initiatives to create disease awareness and the growing availability of various treatment options that are best for these types of patients will contribute to the revenues in the heart valve replacement market. The global heart valve repair and replacement market is one of the fastest growing segments in the global cardiovascular devices industry.
The government organizations and leading manufacturers involved in spreading awareness, education, and support about various types of cardiac diseases will have a positive impact on the global heart valve repair market. Top vendors in the transcatheter space, startups, and small medtech investigational companies are actively engaged in developing next-generation medical devices creating lucrative opportunities in the industry.
INDUSTRY TRENDS & DRIVERS
The leading players are focusing on pursuing inorganic growth strategies such as acquisitions, investments in startups, and emerging companies, to gain a larger global heart valve repair and replacement market share.
