Stent Market to Recover With New Product Introductions: Reports Kalorama

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 12/26/12 -- The global market for coronary stents is projected to recover from its recent decline due to new product innovations, exceeding $6 billion by 2017, according to a recent report from healthcare market research publisher Kalorama Information. Despite the generally difficult global economic climate and intense competition among stent manufacturers, the stent market is expected to grow in the next several years, although at a slower pace. In its new report, "The World Market for Stents (Drug-Eluting and Bare Metal Product Markets in US, EU, Japan, India, China and ROW)," Kalorama Information finds that market growth will result from an increase in the utilization of stents in interventional cardiology, fueled by a growing prevalence of coronary heart disease worldwide and the introduction of new improved devices to the market.

Several new technologies, such as bioresorbable stents, bifurcation and biodegradable polymers stents, are currently in development and projected to enter most major markets in the next years. Such new devices, especially the bioresorbable stents, have the potential to eliminate the negative issues of durable polymer stents, and are therefore expected to bring about a significant shift in the treatment of coronary heart disease, increasing the demand for stents.

"In particular, bioresorbable stents are expected to be welcomed in the treatment of coronary heart disease by both physicians and patients, substantially easing patients' discomfort of having a permanent metallic implant in their body," said analyst Adriana Rusu, author of this report.

According to the report, the first bioresorbable stent to reach the market was developed by Abbott Laboratories -- the leading player in the coronary stents market -- and launched in several markets, including Europe, in September 2012. Besides Abbott, several other companies are also developing bioresorbable stents, employing various technological approaches.

Kalorama Information's report, "The World Market for Stents (Drug-Eluting and Bare Metal Product Markets in US, EU, Japan, India, China and ROW)," examines in detail these new technologies, as well as the entire global coronary stents industry, its structure and major trends affecting it. Revenue forecasts at the global and regional level and profiles of various competitors are also included in the report.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
