Canadian Health Care System Pressuring Manufacturers to Lower Drug-Eluting Stent Prices in US$55 Million Market
Date:10/5/2010

TORONTO, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- According to Millennium Research Group (MRG), the global authority on medical technology market intelligence, the Canadian interventional cardiology device market is a highly competitive and dynamic market, with a small number of large competitors fighting for market share in this extremely profitable area.

This not only limits Canadian interventional cardiology device market revenues, but also further deters manufacturers from entering or launching new products in the Canadian interventional cardiology device market because it is not viewed as cost effective by manufacturers.

"Growth in drug-eluting stent procedure volumes -- which will occur at the expense of bare-metal stent procedures -- will be sustained through 2015," says Adrienne Ma, Analyst at MRG.  "According to interventional cardiologists interviewed by MRG, drug-eluting stent prices are falling dramatically in Canada because of competitive pricing pressures caused by manufacturers fighting to bolster their market share by maintaining and establishing new contracts with hospitals. The upside to the pricing declines is that facilities are able to afford more drug-eluting stents within the same constrained budget that is applied by
