Global Non-Vascular Stents Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The global non-vascular stents market size is estimated to be worth USD 1338.3 million by 2028 from USD 1023.9 million in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period.

Global Non-Vascular Stents Market Share Insights:

  • Based on type, the gastrointestinal stents segment accounted for the largest non-vascular stents market share in 2022.
  • Geographically, the North American region had the most dominating share of the global market in 2022.
  • The European region held a substantial share of the worldwide market in 2022. 

Stents are tubes or devices placed in the body to generate a passage between hollow spaces, and stenting is the process of placement of such a stent in the body. Non-vascular stents are usually utilized for making a pathway in vessels of the body, particularly the arteries and veins that carry lymph and blood.


The increasing disease prevalence of cancer and urolithiasis primarily drives the growth of non-vascular stents.

As per the American Cancer Society, 1.9 million new cancer cases and 609360 cancer deaths are expected in the United States in 2022. The growing number of people suffering from urological and gastrointestinal diseases and the increasing application of non-vascular stents in various emerging fields, such as ophthalmic and neural sciences, are further expected to promote the growth of non-vascular stents. The rising demand for less invasive techniques decreases hospital stays, and diminishing the threat of contracting hospital-acquired infections propels the market growth. In the United States, kidney disorders kill more people than prostate or breast cancer each year. An estimated 34500 people die from prostate cancer yearly in the United States, whereas approximately 43780 die from breast cancer. The growing adoption of the latest technologies to develop stents and retrieval, growing demand for minimally invasive surgeries, and patients due to less cost and less procedural time amid the ambulatory surgical centers are projected to boost the growing demand for non-vascular stents market growth. More than 1 million abdominal wall hernia repairs are implemented annually in the U.S., with inguinal hernias representing around 77,000 cases. About 90% of inguinal hernia repairs are executed in males. As per WHO, 3 million people and above die yearly from chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD) worldwide, and 90% of the deaths are from low and middle-income countries.

In addition, the growing adoption of technological advancements in the healthcare sector, YOY growth in the geriatric population, and increased life expectancy are anticipated to boost the market’s growth rate during the forecast period. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), one in every six people is expected to be older than 60 or more by 2030. As a result, the aging population is likely to get diagnosed with various diseases, which is anticipated to result in a greater need for non-vascular stents.


However, stringent regulatory systems and high costs associated with non-vascular stents are expected to limit the adoption and negatively impact market growth. In addition, the availability of alternative options for relieving luminal structures further limits the market’s growth rate.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global non-vascular stents market:

The unexpected outburst of COVID COVID-19ly changed into a pandemic of unforeseen situations. The change has shifted the focus of the world towards the healthcare sector. Worldwide, governments and other healthcare organizations are effectively working with healthcare institutions and pharmaceutical companies to provide efficient treatment for patients suffering from an infection. During the COVID-19 pandemic, less importance was given to elective surgeries, and more priority was given to COVID-19 patients, which resulted in the reduced demand for the non-vascular stent market. In addition, the disruptions in the supply chain ecosystem and stoppage in medical device manufacturing activities further impacted the market’s growth rate. Likewise, COVID-19 has shown a significant negative impact on the growth of the non-vascular stents market during the pandemic. However, due to the new normalization and reduced impact of COVID-19, the market is expected to recover quickly and register sharp growth during the forecast period.
