MediPoint: Inferior Vena Cava Filters - Global Analysis and Market Forecasts


Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a potentially lethal disease consisting of two related conditions: deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). There remains a small subset of patients with absolute or relative contraindication to anticoagulation, at high risk of embolism, or prone to PE despite adequate anticoagulation. For these patients, physicians may opt to place an inferior vena cava filter (IVCF) as a therapeutic or prophylactic treatment. While historically the adoption of IVCF increased rapidly due to the introduction of retrievable devices, new clinical evidence has come to light that is likely to inhibit any significant market expansion over the coming years.

This report focuses on the market outlook for IVCF in the major regional medical device markets of North America (Canada, Mexico, and the US), Europe (France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Spain, and the UK), Asia-Pacific (APAC) (Australia, China, India, Japan, and South Korea), and South America (Brazil). The global market forecast for this technology is determined for the 15 countries covered in the report.

- What is the physician perception of this technology? Which indications have been treated most successfully using inferior vena cava filters?

- What are the challenges and complications that have hindered widespread adoption?

- With developing the next-generation of devices, what aspects of the technology are device manufacturers focused on optimizing? How will new entrants impact the global inferior vena cava filters market?

Key Findings

- Historically, the US market has accounted for the majority of the global IVCF market due to a rapid increase in prophylactic usage of filters.

- Future growth in the IVCF market will be driven primarily by increasing prophylactic usage of filters in transient high-risk patients.

- The development of programs ensuring filter retrieval will increase filter retrieval rates, subsequently reducing overall complication rates associated with the device

- New technologies such convertible filters are intriguing as they have potential to resolve issues with earlier devices. Filters with integrated ports and lumens that can double as a central venous catheter are also seeing increased adoption.
