Market Overview

  • The Inferior Vena Cava Filter market studied is anticipated to grow with a CAGR of nearly 9.1%, during the forecast period.
  • Certain factors that are driving the market growth include rising prevalence of cardiac ailments and growing demand for minimally invasive techniques.
  • IVCF is indicated for patients who have suffered an acute venous thromboembolic event (VTE) and who cannot receive anticoagulation. IVCF is also commonly suggested for patients who are perceived to have failed anticoagulation.
  • Inferior vena cava filters (IVCF) have been developed with the intent of preventing pulmonary embolism (PE) and reducing venous thromboembolism (VTE) related mortality.
  • The prevalence of VTE is on a rise, across the globe. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), even though the precise number of people affected by VTE is unknown, however as many as 900,000 people could be affected (1 to 2 per 1,000) each year in the United States. The Inferior Vena Cava Filter market is anticipated to grow at a high rate owing to this increasing prevalence.
  • Nonetheless, IVCF are not devoid of complications. Serious complications such as IVC thrombosis occur in a non-negligible proportion of patients receiving these devices, more so in several high-risk populations such as metastatic cancer patients. Such factors are expected to hinder growth of the Inferior Vena Cava Filter market up to a certain extent.

Scope of the Report

Inferior vena cava filters (IVCF) are mechanical devices that are implanted by vascular surgeons or interventional radiologists into the inferior vena cava to prevent life-threatening pulmonary emboli. The trapped blood clots remain in the filter until the body is able to dissolve them. The procedure of IVCF is usually quick and simple to perform.

Key Market Trends

Retrievable IVCF Shows Lucrative Growth in the Global Inferior Vena Cava Filter Market

  • Retrievable IVC filters have gradually become a more attractive option owing to the long-term risks of permanent filter placement. These devices are proved to be technically feasible in insertion and retrieval percutaneously while providing protection from PE.
  • The development of advanced filter retrieval techniques has had a significant impact on the removal of embedded RIVCFs, permitting retrieval of the majority of devices.
  • The approach to retrieving a RIVCF that is embedded or has had an extended implantation time has been significantly impacted by the development of advanced retrieval techniques. A recent study demonstrated that when advanced techniques are employed, RIVCFs can be successfully removed regardless of their dwell time.
  • A few of the FDA-approved retrievable IVC filters are Günther Tulip and Celect filters (Cook Medical), OptEase filter (Cordis Endovascular), and G2 and G2 Express filters (Bard Peripheral Vascular).
Inferior Vena Cava Filter Market Growth

North America Dominates the Global Inferior Vena Cava Filter Market

  • As per the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, estimates suggest that 60,000-100,000 Americans die of venous thromboembolism.
  • 10 to 30% of people are projected to die within one month of diagnosis. Sudden death is the first symptom in about one-quarter (25%) of people who have a PE.
  • Among people who have had a VTE, 33% to 50% are likely to have long-term complications (post-thrombotic syndrome) such as swelling, pain, discoloration, and scaling in the affected limb. One-third (about 33%) of people with VTE are expected to have a recurrence within 10 years.
  • Around 5 to 8% of the U.S. population has one of several genetic risk factors, also known as inherited thrombophilias in which a genetic defect can be identified that increases the risk for thrombosis. This high prevalence of the ailments is expected to drive the market growth across the region.
