The coronary stents market has witnessed patterns of increasing market growth along with some declining phases in its course of span. The introduction of drug-eluting stents (DES) in year 2000 marked a high market growth phase of the market. In the early 2000, the coronary stent market witnessed a spurt in growth. However, the year 2006 and 2007 experienced a steep decline in the market revenues, as a result of release of some adverse clinical trials raising questions about safety and efficacy of DES. The market again started regaining its growth phase by 2008 with improvements in its stability. Prior to the introduction of drug-eluting stents (DES), Bare metal stents (BMS) captured the largest market share of Coronary Stent market worldwide. However, as a result of high penetration rates of DES now, its market share is the highest contributor to the market.
