Drug Eluting Stents Market is set to grow at a CAGR of around 7.5% by 2026, fueled by an increase in occurrence of coronary artery disease: says Absolute Markets Insights


Drug-eluting stents (DES) play an important role in preventing the progression of atheromatous disease. It minimizes the potential risks of heart attacks and strokes, due to blockage of blood supply through the artery. It is implanted in patients to prop open arteries and facilitate blood flow to and from the heart.

“The U.S. and Western Europe are presently estimated to account for more than 65% of the sales of drug eluting stents market. Relatively higher prevalence of cardiovascular problems contribute to the significant demand of these stents in these regions”.  

Coronary Artery Diseases, Peripheral Artery Diseases are the two application of drug eluting stents covered in the scope of the study. Out of these two, the coronary artery segment accounts for a significantly larger revenue share. In terms of product type, the microporous stents hold a significant market share. Innovations in stent technology related to material, coating and platform are propelling the growth of drug eluting stents market. Additionally, the need for effective therapies that reduce the risk of complications such as inflation, restenosis, and thrombosis is accelerating the demand for drug eluting stents market.
