Global Ventricular Assist Devices (VADs) Market Forecasts to 2025 - Vendors are Focusing on Product Approvals & Developing Innovative Products to Strengthen Their Product Portfolio

DUBLIN, March 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Global Ventricular Assist Devices Market 2019-2025" report has been added to's offering.

The market research report predicts that the global ventricular assist devices market will grow at a CAGR of 13.8% during the forecast period.

The market has witnessed steady growth in the past few years and development in technology with the introduction of innovative products have increased the acceptance of heart assist devices in the market. The market is fueled by increase in the incidence of heart failure, lack of heart donors for transplantation, and increasing elderly population.

The market continues to grow and is one of the most widely used devices for the functioning of heart in cardiac failure and weakened heart patients. The market is getting revolutionized with the advancement in technology. Vendors are focusing towards new product launches, product approvals, and targeting towards end-users perspective. The market generates the revenue from the key players operating in this field and some of vendors are Medtronic plc, Reliant Heart Inc., Abbott Laboratories, Berlin Heart GmbH, Jarvik Heart, Inc., and ABIOMED, Inc.

According to the authors analysis, North America accounted for the largest share of the global ventricular assist devices market in 2018 and will retain high position during the forecast period. According to American Heart Association, an estimated 92.1 million population in the US have at least one type of CVD and by 2030 it is projected that 43.9% of the US adult population to have some form of CVD.

Favorable reimbursement policies, availability of advanced technologies, and growing cardiovascular diseases will increase the adoption and demand of the devices in this region. The Asia Pacific is expected to grow during the forecast period, owing to factors such as high prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, increasing healthcare expenditure, and presence of huge population base.

By Product:

  • Left Ventricular Assist Devices (LVAD)
  • Right Ventricular Assist Devices (RVAD)
  • Biventricular Assist Devices (BIVAD)

In 2018, the left ventricular assist devices segment occupied the largest share and is expected to grow at high CAGR during the forecast period. Increasing number of patients suffering from last-stage heart failure, advancement in technology such as effectiveness, high survival rate, and decreased risk of the devices makes the segment the most common among other VAD devices.

By Design:

  • Transcutaneous Ventricular Assist Devices
  • Implantable Ventricular Assist Devices

In 2018, the implantable ventricular assist devices segment occupied the largest share and is expected to grow at high CAGR during the forecast period.

By Application:

  • Bridge-to-Transplant (BTT) Therapy
  • Destination Therapy
  • Bridge-to-Recovery (BTR) Therapy
  • Bridge-to-Candidacy (BTC) Therapy

By application, the bridge-to-recovery (BTR) therapy generated the maximum revenue, thus accounting for more than 35% of the global ventricular assist devices market in 2018 and the segment is expected to grow at high CAGR during the forecast period. The destination therapy segment is expected to be the second highest growing segment during the forecast period.

By Regions:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • APAC
  • ROW

The market is dominated by North America, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific. US occupied the major share of the North American market due to the increasing disease prevalence and availability of advanced technologies.
