DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/gc2rhw/global_vascular) has announced the addition of the "Global Vascular Stents Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.
The analysts forecast the Global Vascular Stents Market to grow at a CAGR of 8.21 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing prevalence of cardiovascular disease. The Global Vascular Stents Market has also been witnessing the trend of increasing demand for minimally invasive procedures. However, availability of alternative therapies could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.
Key vendors dominating this space Abbott Laboratories, Medtronic Inc., Boston Scientific Corp., and Cordis Corp.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the Healthcare team said: ''There is an increasing demand for minimally invasive surgery among the rapidly increasing aging population across the world, and this is expected to propel the growth of the Global Vascular Stents market. Minimally invasive endovascular procedures are performed through minute incisions in the body. Such procedures can be used to treat plaque blockages in the arteries of the heart and other vessel walls of peripheral organs such as the kidneys and the brain. The principal advantage of these procedures over conventional surgical methods is the short recovery time, short length of the scars resulting in less physical trauma, low risk of infection, minimized bleeding, low cost, and shorter hospital stays.''
According to the report, one of the key drivers is the increase in the number of patients suffering from CVD. Unhealthy diet and lack of physical activity are the major factors leading to an increase in the number of people prone to CVD.
