A vascular closure device is generally a tiny piece of collagen which is a fibrous protein in skin and bones, or a suture or a metal clip helps immediately seal off the artery's puncture after angiography to prevent bleeding since it becomes a necessity to remove the plastic sheath which even provides access to the femoral artery. It can usually be achieved by manual compression with the doctor's fingers placed directly over the hole. During specific medical investigations, the femoral artery is punctured to access the highway to perform diagnostic tests such as angiograms and place stents. Then, vascular closure devices stop the blood flow in the damaged area. Before developing vascular closure devices, manual compression was used to stop the artery's blood flow, which is a painful and time-consuming process. Vascular closure devices reduce the discomfort of patients and human effort. In addition, recent advancements introduced materials that dissolve after some time, unlike sutures or collagen plugs.


The growing patient count suffering from cardiovascular diseases, rising incidence of obesity, and substantial regular product approvals are driving the vascular closure devices market.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cardiovascular diseases are the leading causes of death, recording over 17 million deaths yearly. By 2030, the number is forecasted to reach approximately 23.6 million. Furthermore, the rising adoption of sedentary lifestyle changes and growing unhealthy habits such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and irregular diet are expected to increase the need for vascular closure devices soon. In addition, the YOY demand for advanced therapies, government initiatives, a growing number of approvals, and increasing research and clinical trials are propelling the vascular closure devices market.

The increasing number of device approvals, a growing wide range of cardiac processes, and prominence for minimally invasive surgeries further promote the vascular closure devices market.

The accelerating need for angiography due to the rise in chronic cardiac diseases is a big plus to the market. Furthermore, the growing support and initiatives from the governments, the increasing need for advanced treatment, and spurring research and clinical trials are further predicted to support the vascular closure devices market growth. As per the data published by the Centres for Disease Control (CDC) in 2017, coronary heart disease-causing 370,000 deaths in the United States every year.

Vascular closure devices (VCDs) have arisen to be an effective alternative for femoral artery closure over traditional mechanical compression, especially for those patients undergoing femoral catheterization. They not only have the potential to reduce hemostasis time, narrow the femoral artery, and improve patient satisfaction but also facilitate early patient mobilization, reduce complications, and reduce patient discomfort associated with prolonged bed rest, resulting in reduced length of hospital stay.

Other benefits offered by vascular closure devices are a passive approach for closure of the access site without direct contact with the arterial wall, increased patient comfort, temporary hemostasis and walking times, reduced post-operative care, use of sutures, nitinol clips, collagen and polymer plugs for physical closure of the access site along with the use of compression devices and active approximations are some of the significant factors which are anticipated to drive the market growth. In addition, the high effectiveness of vascular closure devices is projected to boost the growth of the vascular closure devices market. Moreover, factors such as the growing incidence of obesity and the high occurrence of cardiovascular diseases are expected to drive the global vascular closure devices market.


Even though vascular closure devices offer so many benefits, a few complications are faced by the patients after their use, including hematoma formation, repeated bleeding, arterial dissection retroperitoneal bleeding, and even severe disorders like pseudoaneurysm after collagen plug insertion, which may even lead to higher infection rates. On the other side, the low quality and failures in the devices and a deficit of devices are the problems leading to product recalls, one of the leading causes hindering the market growth. In addition, some factors, such as product replacements, and the companies creating a negative impression, hampers the development of these products.

Impact Of COVID-19 On the Global Vascular Closure Devices Market

The COVID-19 eruption was caused by the SARS-CoV-2 reagent and caused many deaths. Daily, the number of coronavirus cases is increasing, and the movement of the COVID-19 pandemic has squeezed the procedural volume of various cardiovascular disease treatments during the pandemic's early stages. The inventions in vascular closure devices have retarded due to COVID-19 and the postponement of elective surgeries, which strained the market growth rate. Due to the abnormal coronavirus outbreak, the European parliament revealed the delay in implementing the new Medical Device Regulation (MDR). It assists the Medtech companies in the vascular closure devices market to support their operations due to the weakening results of the pandemic crisis. The high threat of COVID-19 infection amid such procedures with rising hospitalizations of COVID-19 patients evolved in procedure extension.
