has announced the addition of the "Global
Bare Metal Stents Market 2011-2015" report to their offering.
TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Bare Metal Stents market to
reach US$1.86 billion by 2015. One of the key factors contributing to
this market growth is the high prevalence of cardiovascular diseases.
The Global Bare Metal Stents market has also been witnessing the trend

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Healthcare team
said; The development of new alloys for the manufacture of coronary
stents is expected to lead to an increase in the adoption of Bare Metal
Stents (BMSs) in the treatment of coronary heart disease (CHD). The
usage of new alloys such as cobalt-chromium (CoCr) and platinum-chromium
(PtCr) has led to the design and manufacture of advanced stents.
Traditionally, stainless steel was used in the production of BMSs.
Though flexibility and deliverability were achieved with the use of
stainless steel, there was a loss of radiopacity and compression
strength. These drawbacks were overcome through the use of CoCr stents,
which enabled manufacturers to design stents with even thinner struts
than before. This technological advancement will help drive the growth
of the Global BMS market.
According to the report, globally, cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) such
as CHD and strokes are on the rise. The increase in the incidence of CVD
is due to a variety of factors, such as obesity, diabetes, excessive
smoking and alcohol consumption, and unhealthy lifestyles. Further, the
rapidly increasing aging population is increasing the number of people
prone to CVD. All these factors drive the demand in the Global BMS
