Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is a rapidly growing medical imaging technology, which holds immense potential pertaining to its ability to address unmet requirements in the earlier detection and intervention of coronary artery diseases. Moreover, the popularity of this technology has surged due to its proven advantages (as indicated by some international clinical studies) over traditional angiography. In addition to this, an aging population and rising chronic disease (such as cardiac disease) population is also fueling the market’s growth. However, the high cost of IVUS devices/products coupled with the growing need of cost-effective treatment worldwide is restricting the potential market growth. On the other side, different reimbursement scenarios for such devices depict varying degrees of penetration of this technology worldwide. This report presents such issues that are driving and constraining the market growth and probable solutions that can address such concerns. This report also highlights key market strategies, trends and recommendations in addition to providing the quantitative assessment of the market that can help manufacturers and suppliers understand the growth potential of different market segments.


This report includes only those products, applications and end users that are listed above, and segments the global market by four regions as listed above. The scope of the report includes the following.

  • Key market analysis.
  • Strategic recommendations.
  • Market dynamics (drivers, restraints and opportunities).
  • Forecasted market estimation for 2012 through 2017.
  • Competitive developments and landscape.

This report will enable the audience to understand and gain insights of the current and changing market scenario. The data provided can help users understand which market segments (products, applications and end users) are expected to growth at higher rates, factors driving growth, factors limiting the growth, key opportunity areas and so on.


Because of the nature of the markets involved in this report, the markets were assessed in the top-down method. The content provided in this report including market numbers and forecasts was prepared based on both primary and secondary research methodologies. Market dynamics, qualitative information and views of industry participants were also taken into consideration while forecasting and measuring the market values. Historic and base numbers were derived from primary and secondary methodology.  Macro markets were further divided into micro markets in consultation with views of different industry participants. The average of the range of the estimates gathered from primary research was taken, and later validated from, secondary and primary sources. Similarly, data on PCI numbers, IVUS procedures and IVUS penetration rates were gathered both from primary and secondary research. The primary research included interviews and discussions with key industry participants, key opinion leaders and some subject matter experts including healthcare professionals or technicians (such as nurses, doctors, lab technicians). Secondary data were collected from free sources such as Google search, company websites, industry reports and paid sources such as Key notes, Factiva, LexisNexis, etc.

In this market study, IVUS use is segmented into three sections at the micro level: research, diagnostics and intervention. Some of the applications categorized under the intervention section may seem to be part of diagnostics; thus, such categories named in this market study are subject to the definitions of each market segment of diagnostics and intervention categories.
