Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/16/2019 -- Transparency Market Research (TMR) has published a new report titled 'Intracranial Stents Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2018–2026.' According to the report, the global intracranial stents market was valued at US$ 298.7 Mn in 2017. It is projected to expand at a CAGR of 10.4% from 2018 to 2026. Aging population and longer life-expectancy, increased awareness, and acceptance of advanced devices are key factors that are likely to drive the intracranial stents market from 2018 to 2026.
Intracranial stents is a considerably less invasive technique, as compared to the conventional open surgery, for the management of vascular malformation. Hence, there are fewer complications and the hospital stay is relatively brief. Blood loss is lesser than traditional surgical treatment, and there is no obvious surgical incision. Intracranial stents can be used to treat tumors and vascular malformations that either cannot be removed surgically or would involve great risk if surgery was attempted. Intracranial stents is an effective and safe minimally-invasive alternative to surgery.
The report offers detailed segmentation of the global intracranial stents market based on product type, disease indication, end-user, and region. In terms of product type, the self-expanding stents segment accounted for a dominant share of the market in 2017. High flexibility and low chances of restenosis has paved the way for the introduction of self-expanding stents and thereby, has fuelled the market. The introduction of advanced intracranial stents has revolutionized the intracranial stents market; factors such as reduction in infection risk, fast recovery are expected to drive the demand for intracranial stents during the forecast period.
