Key Market Trends

Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) Spearheaded the Market Studied

The implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) segment accounted for the largest share in the global market. The ICDs are of three major types, namely transvenous ICDs, subcutaneous ICDs, and CRT with pacemaker and ICD function.

  • The transvenous and subcutaneous ICDs are expected to exhibit the fastest growth rate over the forecast period, owing to the rising technological advancements, increasing R&D, and benefits associated with these ICDs. According to the European Heart Journal, 2019, implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is considered as an important device for the treatment of sudden cardiac death (SCD) prevention and ventricular tachyarrhythmias.

  • Moreover, according to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, in 2017, approximately 4,578 people died, due to heart failure and cardiomyopathy. Hence, the growing morbidity and mortality of cardiovascular diseases and the efficacy of these devices to manage arrhythmias for a prolonged period are expected to drive the segment's growth, over the forecast period.

North America is Expected to Dominate the Market Studied

In North America, the United States is expected to hold the major market share. This is mainly due to factors, such as increasing number of diseases.

  • Cardiovascular diseases, listed as the underlying cause of death, account for nearly 836,546 deaths (about 1 of every 3 deaths) in the United States. The increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases in the region is expected to drive the market growth, over the forecast period.

  • In 2017, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), along with a number of public and private partners, launched the Million Hearts initiative that aims to prevent one million heart attacks and strokes.

  • According to the American Heart Association's research program, cardiovascular diseases are listed as the primary cause of deaths and accounted for nearly 836,546 deaths in the United States. The deaths related to cardiovascular diseases are higher when compared to deaths related to all forms of cancer and chronic lower respiratory diseases combined.

  • Therefore, the aforementioned factors are expected to boost the market growth.
