The market for implantable drug delivery devices in cardiovascular applications held
majority of the market share in 2011 and owing to the introduction of bio-absorbable
stents expected in 2014, its market share is likely to witness further increase by 2018.
The biodegradable drug delivery implant technology will grow at a faster CAGR in
comparison to the non-biodegradable drug delivery implant technology due to the fact that
they do not involve re-surgeries for device removal and eliminates side effects induced by
the prolonged presence of the device in the body.

The North American implantable drug delivery devices market held majority of the
market share in 2011. However, its market share is expected to drop by 2018 owing to the
accelerated market growth in the Asian regions induced by the economic development of
emerging nations with high unmet medical needs such as India and China.
