“India is set to overtake China in becoming the world’s most populous country around 2020, leading to a significant patient base and rapidly-expanding medical device market.
“The flexibility of manufacturers with respect to the use of stents, such as employing a pay-as-you-go model, will be hugely important in driving India’s non-vascular stent market in the future.”
Of the four non-vascular stent segments, India’s urinary tract stents arena will continue to hold the largest market share of 55.3% in 2021, up from 54.1% in 2013. While this is mainly due to a large population base commonly affected by urolithiasis, the country’s low cancer incidence also means the other segments will constitute fewer shares in the market.
Despite the projected increase of India’s overall non-vascular stents market to 2021, the director says that numerous barriers will hinder further growth.
“Rural areas and smaller cities are still underserved with respect to stenting procedures, and are awaiting the most current technologies’ arrival.
“Furthermore, India’s market remains challenging for multinational corporations to penetrate, with unstable distribution networks and the prominence of low-cost manufacturers. In a country with high procedure volumes, local manufacturers can produce products at a third of multinationals’ costs, allowing them to compete directly with foreign companies.”
