Understanding market size can be crucial to evaluate opportunities and make informed decisions about market entry and exit. Medical device companies can identify attractive segments in respective markets as well as develop marketing strategies based on forecasts for those segments.

The main goal of the stent is to hold the inner wall in its compressed position and retain the enlarged vessel diameter. Coronary stents are used in the coronary vasculature and include bioabsorbable stents (BAS), drug eluting stents (DES), bare metal stents (BMS) and covered stents. Coronary stent system consists of a stent and balloon catheter delivery system. Coronary bare metal stents are uncoated stents that are permanently placed inside the artery. Coronary drug eluting stents release drugs locally and can be coated with a polymeric material. Coronary covered stents have a metal skeleton with an extra accessory or cover which is made up of fabric or graft material. Coronary bioabsorbable stents are also known as bioresorbable or biodegradable coronary stents.

The coronary stents market in Japan can expand or contract due to a variety of reasons including population demographics, disease incidence and prevalence, macroeconomic issues, and geopolitical considerations. Disruption to a market could be caused by a sudden, unexpected change in these factors, but it could also be driven by changes in clinical practice, leading to a change in diagnosis or treatment of patients, as part of a process to generally improve medical practice.
