Bioabsorbable Scaffolds - APAC Analysis and Market Forecasts


Coronary artery disease (CAD) and peripheral artery disease (PAD) are global public health and socioeconomic issues that affect millions of lives each year. Bioabsorbable scaffolds (BAS), which provide transient support to the vessel, are viable alternatives to permanent drug-eluting stents (DES) and bare metal stents (BMS) implants. In the report, BAS are defined as fully-bioabsorbable devices that are used in stenting procedures that completely disappear from the target vessel overtime. Stents such as BioMatrix Flex by Biosensors International and Synergy by Boston Scientific Corporation are not included in the report because they are metallic DES with bioabsorbable polymer coatings. Absorption of the bioabsorbable polymer coating still leaves behind a permanent BMS inside the vessel.

This report focuses on the current and future APAC (Japan, China and India). This report identifies the unmet needs in the market, provides an understanding of physician perception of BAS, and evaluates the adoption of BAS in the future. Through GlobalData’s analysis, it is evident that although there will be early adopters within the APAC region and the widespread adoption of BAS will begin slowly. Large-scale, long-term studies need to be conducted to demonstrate their clinical efficacy, and new stent technologies need to be integrated appropriately into the existing reimbursement systems throughout the APAC region covered in this report. To successfully market BAS, companies need to design novel scaffold platforms that address the current unmet needs of conventional drug-eluting and BMS, and show superior clinical performance to the stents that are currently marketed and being used in modern clinics.
