Enteral stents market is a leading non-vascular stents market. This market includes esophageal stents, gastroduodenal stents, and colonic stents, and is divided into three segments: fully covered enteral stents, partially covered enteral stents, and non-covered enteral stents. As a whole, the enteral stents market is increasing, primarily due to globally rising cancer rates, specifically esophageal, stomach, pancreatic, and colorectal cancers, and by an increased awareness of stenting as a palliative treatment.
Globally, fully covered stents command the largest market share. They tend to be preferred over partially covered and non-covered enteral stents, especially in the case of esophageal stents, as they have the lowest risk of tumor or tissue ingrowth. The non-covered enteral stents market, however, is a declining market, as they are more likely to result in tumor ingrowth and result in further complications. This trend is seen throughout the global enteral stents market.
