In 2022, GlobalData’s Market Model methodology determined that the leading player in the inferior vena cava filters market in the US was Mermaid Medical followed by Becton Dickinson and Co, ALN implants chirurgicaux, Cardinal Health, B. Braun Melsungen, Argon Medical Devices, Merit Medical Systems, Cook Group, LifeTech Scientific and Boston Scientific.

The filter is inserted inside a large vein called the inferior vena cava (which carries blood from lower extremities to the heart). IVC filter traps blood clots before it reaches to the lungs. It is commonly used as a preventive measure in cases where DVT and PE has been diagnosed or as a prophylactic device in cases where the risk of developing VTE is high and there is a contraindication for anticoagulants. Usage of IVC filters can prevent PE, but it does not restrict blood clot formation. IVC filters are made of non-ferromagnetic materials [Cobalt Chromium Alloy, Stainless Steel, Titanium, Nickel-Titanium (Nitinol)]. Permanent, Retrievable IVC filters and IVCF Retrieval Devices have been tracked under this segment. Permanent inferior vena cava filters (IVCF) once inserted cannot be removed or repositioned. Retrievable inferior vena cava filters (IVCF) once inserted can be retrieved or repositioned up to a certain point of time. Optional Retrievable inferior vena cava filters are used to prevent pulmonary embolism when anticoagulation is ineffective. Temporary Retrievable inferior vena cava filters are used to prevent the risk of PE for a short duration and should be ideally retrieved within 30 to 60 days. IVCF Retrieval Devices are used for removal of Retrievable IVC Filters from the vena cava.

Following the widespread disruption resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic to the broader medical devices market during 2020 and 2021, the value of the inferior vena cava filters devices market within the US was expected to be over $100m in 2022.
