Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/04/2018 -- The rapid rise in geriatric population, increasing cases of lung cancer across the globe, and high preference for minimally invasive procedures are driving the growth of The Global Airway/Lung Stent Market. Bringing down the risk of heart attack, stents are offering a lifesaving function leading to the rapid growth. Advancement in technologies has led to the development of new airway/lung stents. 3D printing has undergone a rapid development, researchers and clinicians have started using this technology for device manufacturing. For instance, researchers from the University of Zurich, University of Hospital Zurich and ETH Zurich are together developing 3D printed patient-specific, drug-coated stents.
Universities and companies around the world are entering into a partnership for product innovation and cost-effective methods. A removable stent for use in blood vessels created by a professor at Norwegian University of Science and Technology in 2015, has also shown potential in the respiratory tract, completely revolutionizing the treatment for patients facing breathing issues due to narrow airways. End users are specially focusing on the selection of stent type and size to avoid complications including granulation tissue formation, migration, and airway perforation. The diameter and stent length is selected based on bronchial or tracheal size.

North America to Remain Dominant in the Global Airway/Lung Stent Market
North America is expected to dominate the global airway/lung stent market during the forecast period. As per the American Cancer Society estimation, in 2017 around 222,500 new cases of lung cancer were found in the U.S. alone, thereby driving the market growth. Selection of airway stents is very limited in the U.S. Two basic types used are self-expandable metallic nitinol stents and silicone-based tubes, and the size range is also limited. Hence, 3D printing is emerging as a new technology in designing and developing stents as per the patient requirement. Presence of a large number of lung stents manufacturers in North America and rapid adoption and development of innovative products are also resulting in the growth of airway/lung stent market in North America.
