A drug-coated balloon (DCB) is defined as a semi-compliant angioplasty balloon layered with a cytotoxic chemotherapeutic agent. At present, paclitaxel-coated balloons are gaining popularity in commercial applications. In recent years, drug-coated balloons have emerged as a stimulating technology developed to modify the limitations challenged by drug-eluting stents and are further expected to prove effective in complex subsets. Numerous drug-coated balloons identified for coronary and peripheral applications were estimated recently in preclinical and clinical studies with encouraging results.
The market is anticipated to be driven by rising technological advancements coupled with increased demand for minimally invasive surgery. The growing prevalence of Peripheral and coronary artery diseases across the globe is also considered as one of the major factors driving the market. Rapidly augmenting geriatric population with cardiovascular diseases, huge patient base in developing countries, and cumulative investments in R&D for treatment of peripheral and coronary artery diseases are the are other significant factors driving the market growth.
