Stents are small, mesh-like expandable tubes that are inserted into narrowed arteries in the body in order to open up vessels or arteries. Depending upon clinical condition, varieties of stents are available. Stent implantation is most commonly used in cardiac diseases like artery blockage, atherosclerosis, etc. Stents are also used in expanding oesophagus to allow the passage of edible items to the patients with oesophageal cancer. Stents are also used in ureter and bile. Stents are mostly made up of metal, polymers and bioabsorbable materials. These materials do not cause any harm to the body and stents can be kept for years and years. Increase in technology advancements leads to high accuracy and minimal invasive stents surgeries tends to provide opportunities for industrial growth. Followed by, rising coronary heart patients stimulates the demand for PCI procedure.

Stringent regulatory rules act as a barrier in the growth of stents market. For instance, European Association of Percutaneous Cardiovascular Interventions provides the clinical guidelines for the usage of stents. Moreover, Office of Combination Products also have set of guidelines for the use of drug eluting stents by medical professionals. These hinders the growth of the stents market across the globe.

COVID-19 Impact on the Stents Market Analysis

Covid-19 has highly affected the industries in terms of growth, economy, health and mental wellbeing of every individual. In this challenging situation, healthcare industry is trying to give best services in terms of quality and safety.  Due to sudden outbreak of covid-19, there was decline in growth of stents market. The supply of raw materials, medical devices, equipment were delayed due to restrictions on movements. For instance, the manufacturing plants in the US, Ireland and Malaysia to supply the products across the globe was impacted. Due to decrease in demand for coronary stents, the products related to surgeries and stents were not sold and this affected the growth of stents market. Whereas, the subsidiary companies without proper manufacturing unit's tires to import the stents with relative higher cost and overall cost of procedures in selected regions to the patients. During covid pandemic, the focus of medical practitioner was on providing treatment to covid patients, which led to delay in performing surgeries.
