Industry Insights by Product (Embolic Agents [Microspheres, Embolic coils, Liquid embolic agents, Embolic plug systems, Detachable balloons], Support Devices [Microcatheters, Guidewires]), by Procedure (Transcatheter Arterial Embolization [TAE], Transarterial Radioembolization/Selective Internal Radiation Therapy [TARE/SIRT], Transarterial Chemoembolization [TACE]), by Indication (Cancer [Liver, Kidney, Others], Neurological Diseases [Cerebral aneurysm, Arteriovenous malformation and fistulas], Peripheral Vascular Diseases, Urological & Nephrological Disorders, Gastrointestinal Disorders), by End User (Hospitals & Clinics, Ambulatory Surgical Centers [ASCs], Others)

Industry Overview

The global embolotherapy market was valued at USD 3,200.0 million in 2018. The market is growing significantly due to the extensive incidences of liver cancer, uterine fibroids, vascular diseases, strokes along with technological progressions being undertaken in this market. Furthermore, increasing preference pertaining to nominally invasive processes and excessive funds, grants and investments availed to key players by public-private enterprises for research are another factors that are bolstering the growth of global embolotherapy market at a significant rate.

Embolotherapy Market Highlights

Embolotherapy is a form of endovascular treatment that intends to obstruct abnormal blood vessels for controlling bleeding, devascularise organs, arteriovenous malformations and close fistulae. Furthermore, embolotherapy is performing crucial role in medicine domain that aims at the accomplishment of occlusion and utilises various embolic agents and minimally invasive techniques for instance coils, gelfoam, angiographic, balloons and catheters. This technique helps in treating wide range of problems and utilises varies therapies such as UFE, TACE and venous embolisation for the treatment of arthritis embolization and haemorrhoid and is further witnessing technological progressions that is contributing towards rampant growth of global embolotherapy market.

Market Segmentation

Insight by Product

On the basis of product, the global embolotherapy market is categorised into embolic agents, and support devices, wherein embolic agents category held the larger share in the market in 2018, owing to the evolution of advanced embolic agents, such as calibrated microspheres for bland embolization, and radioactive Y-90 microspheres to treat primary or secondary liver diseases.

Embolic agents are further categorized into microspheres, embolic coils, liquid embolic agents, embolic plug systems, and detachable balloons.

Support devices category is also further segmented into microcatheters and guidewires.

Insight by Procedure

On the basis of procedure, the global embolotherapy market is categorised into TAE (transcatheter arterial embolization), TACE (transarterial chemoembolization) and TARE/SIRT (transarterial radioembolization/selective internal radiation therapy). Amongst these segments, TAE segment is anticipated to generate largest revenue throughout the estimated period as transarterial embolization is used for treating kidney cancer, neuroendocrine tumors and liver cancer and is further utilised for the treatment of aneurysyms, uterine fibroids and various such diseases and are commonly being known as TAE or arterial embolization and is performing vital role in strengthening the growth of the global embolotherapy market at rapid pace.

Insight by Indication

Based on indication, the global embolotherapy market is segmented into cancer, neurological diseases, peripheral vascular diseases, urological & nephrological disorders, and gastrointestinal disorders, wherein cancer category held the largest share in the market in 2018, owing to the rising prevalence of cancer, especially kidney and liver cancers.

Cancer category is further segmented into the liver, kidney, and others.

Neurological diseases are further segmented into cerebral aneurysm, and arteriovenous malformation and fistulas.

Insight by End User

Based on end user, the global embolotherapy market is segmented into ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs), hospitals and clinics, and others. Amongst these segments, hospitals and clinics are dominating in terms of revenue throughout the estimated period owing to extensive accessibility of reimbursements policies being implemented by hospitals and clinics and excessive adoption of these devices in small clinics, big hospitals and critical care units.
