Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Airway Stents Market 2018-2022
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global airway stents market: BD, Boston Scientific, Cook, M.I. TECH, Merit Medical Endotek, Novatech, and Teleflex.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is introduction of 3D printed personalized airway stents. Over the last two decades, 3D printing has undergone a series of revolution in the medical imaging industry. Due to the ever-changing demand for airway stents, clinicians and researchers are focused on incorporating 3D printing technology into airway stents.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is growing prevalence of cancer and respiratory disorders. Several chronic respiratory disorders, lung cancer, and preliminary conditions such as infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, and metastatic cancers are leading to the growth of the market. COPD is another type of chronic disorder which blocks the airflow and leads to breathing-related issues such as emphysema and chronic bronchitis and is contributing to the increasing demand for airway stent.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is complications associated with airway stenting. Airways stenting is one of the standard treatment for the palliative or curative treatment of central airways obstruction. However, complications related to airway stents have a negative impact on the market growth such as migration, granulation tissue formation, and airway perforation from the excessive radical force of the stent.
