The Global Market for Ventricular Assist Devices is Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 11% from 2010 to 2017
The global market for Ventricular Assist Devices (VAD) is forecast to grow from $500.3m in 2010 to more than $1 billion by 2017 with a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 11%. The market is expected to be driven by growing patient population and the growing demand for VADs for bridge to transplantation (BTT) and bridge to recovery therapies. With the rapid technological advancements in this segment, VADs are expected to become a viable treatment option for heart failure patients in the future.

Ventricular Assist Devices Market is Expected to be Driven by Significant Patient Population

The global prevalence of heart failure is significant and is expected to increase at a significant pace, driving growth in the global VAD market. According to the American Heart Association, it is estimated that in 2010, globally more than 23 million people had heart failure. Heart failure is more predominant in people above 75 years of age. An aging population would indicate an increase in the heart failure disease population. Moreover, the increasing prevalence of other risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes, obesity and coronary artery disease are also expected to contribute to the increase in disease population.

Left Ventricular Assist Devices is the Key Segment Driving Growth in the Ventricular Assist Devices Market

LVAD: Left Ventricular Assist Devices
The Left Ventricular Assist Devices (LVAD) market contributes significantly to the total VAD market. It was valued at $363.3m in 2010 and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 13% to reach $870.3m by 2017. This segment accounts for about 73% of the $500.3m revenues of the global VAD market. The LVADs are used in the Bridge-to-Transplantation (BTT), destination therapy and bridge to recovery. This has led to the increasing demand for the LVADs thereby causing market growth. The disease population for left sided heart failure is also higher which further increases the demand for LVADs.

The US is the Biggest Market for Ventricular Assist Devices

The US VAD market was valued at $306.2m in 2010 and is expected to reach $725.8m by 2017 with a CAGR of 13%. The US accounts for 61% of the global VAD market which was $500.3m in 2010. The US market for VADs is driven by patient awareness and increasing disease prevalence. The other drivers behind such growth include the recommendations by various medical associations and clinical trials such as the Randomized Evaluation of Mechanical Assistance for the Treatment of Congestive Heart Failure (REMATCH) which encourage the use of VADs as long term treatments for advanced-stage heart failure.

Thoratec is the Leading Player in the Global Ventricular Assist Devices Market

In 2010, Thoratec with 73% share was the dominant player in the global VAD market. Thoratec’s market dominance can be attributed to its broad product portfolio in the VAD segment and other mechanical support devices to treat the full range of clinical needs for advanced heart failure patients. In addition, it has strong brand recognition in the market which gives the company a competitive edge over other VAD manufacturers.
Other companies in the global VAD market include HeartWare International, Berlin Heart GmbH, MicroMed Cardiovascular, Jarvik, Terumo Heart and ABIOMED.
