iCrowd Newswire – Jul 22, 2020

Left Atrial Appendage Market size is forecast to reach $1.87 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 18.3% during the forecast period 2020-2025. The left atrial appendage (LAA) is a small, ear-shaped sac in the muscle wall of the left atrium (top left chamber of the heart). It has developmental, ultrastructural, and physiological characteristics distinct from the left atrium proper. Growing incidences of atrial fibrillation and increasing technological advancements are driving the market growth in recent years. Growing geriatric population and recent market developments by key players present in the market is also poised to drive the growth of the market during the forecast period 2020-2025.

Product Type – Segment Analysis

Endocardial LAA Closure Device held the largest share in the product type segment of Left Atrial Appendage Market in 2019 and is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 14.2% during the forecast period 2020-2025. The Endocardial LAA Closure Devices mostly create a mechanical barrier between the LAA and LA without eliminating the LAA body completely. These devices are currently in more demand, owing to the devices being approved by FDA (WATCHMAN by Boston Scientific) or in preclinical or clinical evaluation stages (Ultraseal by Cardia and Pfm by Pfm Medical). Typically, endocardial LAA closure devices require short-term postprocedural oral anticoagulation for a few weeks to months during device endothelization. Endocardial LAA Closure Devices are anticipated to find an important niche in patients at a high bleeding risk and very high stroke risk. Endocardial LAA Closure Devices is set to be the fastest growing segment and is estimated to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period 2020-2025, owing to increase in its usage in hospitals and other healthcare centers.

Drivers – Left Atrial Appendage Market

Rising prevalence of atrial fibrillation

In the last two decades, a rapid upward course of atrial fibrillation (AF) prevalence and incidence is occurring. It is estimated that between 2.7 million and 6.1 million people in the U.S. have AF. As the U.S. population ages, this number is estimated to increase. The reasons for the increase in the prevalence of AF remain elusive and are related to multiple factors including enhanced detection, increased incidence, and greater survival after onset of AF. This is set to aid the rapid demand of LAA devices in the healthcare sector across the world. Growing geriatric population and development of advanced minimally invasive theories of Left Atrial Appendage Market in upcoming years is estimated to drive the industry growth during the forecast period 2020-2025.
