Growing Incidence of Traumatic Disorders Places Embolization Segment at the Fore

By application, the embolization segment accounted for a share of 24% in 2014 and is expected to continue to hold its dominance over the forecast period as well. The increasing prevalence of diseases such as traumatic injuries has been promoting the advancement of this segment. By geography, North America surfaced as the leading segment of the global interventional radiology market in 2015, thanks to the rising demand for minimally invasive procedures and continuous upgrading of medical devices in the region.

Increasing Geriatric Population Responsible for Growing Demand

One of the primary growth drivers of the global market for interventional radiology is the alarming incidence of obesity all over the globe. Unhealthy eating habits, lack of exercise, and faulty lifestyles are leading to chronic diseases including cardiac conditions. As the number of people suffering from such disorders and diseases increases, the demand for interventional radiology is likely to pick up subsequently.

The rising geriatric population is also propelling the market for interventional radiology. Age is a significant risk factor associated with the contraction of numerous diseases. A great portion of the aging population has already been diagnosed with neurological, cardiovascular, and orthopedic disorders. Despite the advancement of the market, the lack of reimbursement policies across a number of regions can restrict growth. For instance, in developing countries such as India and Brazil, where the reimbursements are already low, a further reduction in reimbursements has been made. The high costs of equipment and surgeries has been responsible for this reduction in reimbursements.
