The global cardiac monitoring & cardiac rhythm management devices market was pegged at ~US$ 22 billion in 2020 and is expected to witness a CAGR of ~4.0% during the forecast period.
Rising cases of cardiac diseases and associated risk factors are responsible for the growth of the global cardiac monitoring & cardiac rhythm management devices market. Cardiac Monitoring devices measure irregular heartbeat that happens infrequently. Heart's sinus node controls the heartbeat by releasing electrical shockwaves which move across the atria causing the heart muscle to contract and pump blood to the rest of the body. Due to a heart attack, heart muscle damage and certain medical conditions can cause an irregular heart rhythm. Cardiac monitoring devices are used to monitor heartbeat, assess the presence and severity of cardiac disease in patients, and evaluate the efficiency of drugs, interventions, operations, and device implants. Cardiac rhythm management devices include implantable devices, leads, and accessories, as well as external devices to treat and manage arrhythmia-related diseases either too slow a heart rhythm (pacemakers) or too fast a rhythm (cardioverter defibrillators), thereby helping patients to improve their overall health status. It acts whenever a cardiac monitoring device detects an irregular heartbeat, then it stimulates current and gives a shock to the heart which brings the heartbeat back to normal.
The global cardiac monitoring & cardiac rhythm management devices market is mainly driven by growing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, technological advancements, rising adoption of monitoring devices during the pandemic and increasing awareness among the patients. Furthermore, increasing investments, funds, and grants for research on cardiac monitoring & cardiac rhythm management devices is also playing a pivotal role in contributing to the growth of the market globally. However, recall of defective products, high cost of devices, and risk of related cybersecurity vulnerabilities are likely to restrain market growth to a certain extent. For instance, in June 2021 the WHO released a note that 17.9 million people died from CVDs in 2019, representing 32% of all global deaths. Of these deaths, 85% were due to heart attack and stroke.
The global cardiac monitoring & cardiac rhythm management devices market has been analyzed from four perspectives: Devices for Cardiac Monitoring, Devices for Cardiac Rhythm Management, End User, and Region.
Cardiac Monitoring & Cardiac Rhythm Management Devices Market by Devices for Cardiac Monitoring
Based on devices for cardiac monitoring, the market has been segmented into electrocardiogram (ECG) devices [resting ECG, stress ECG and Holter monitors], implantable loop recorders (ILR), cardiac output monitoring (COM) devices [minimally invasive COM devices and noninvasive COM devices], mobile cardiac telemetry monitoring (MCT/MCOT) and event monitors. The electrocardiogram (ECG) devices segment accounted for the largest share in the market in 2021, owing to technological advancements in ECG devices such as portable and handheld and favorable government regulations.
Cardiac Monitoring & Cardiac Rhythm Management Devices Market by Devices for Cardiac Rhythm Management
Based on devices for cardiac rhythm management, the market has been segmented into pacemakers and defibrillator. Pacemakers are further bifurcated - by implantability [implantable pacemakers and external pacemakers] and by type [dual-chamber pacemakers, single-chamber pacemakers and biventricular/CRT pacemakers]. Whereas defibrillators are further segmented into implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) [S-ICD and T-ICD] and external defibrillator [manual external defibrillator, automatic external defibrillator and wearable cardioverter defibrillator]. The defibrillator segment is expected to hold highest share during the forecast period. The growth of the segment in the global market can largely be attributed to technological advancements in defibrillators, training & awareness programs on defibrillators and growing focus on providing public-access defibrillators.
Cardiac Monitoring & Cardiac Rhythm Management Devices Market by End User
Based on end user, the cardiac monitoring & cardiac rhythm management devices market has been segmented into hospitals, clinics & cardiac specialty centers; home care settings; and ambulatory care centers. Hospitals, clinics & cardiac specialty centers segment holds the largest share in the market. The growth of the segment can mainly be attributed to the growing number of patients visiting hospitals for diagnosis, increasing number of cardiac implant procedures and availability of reimbursements across developed countries.
Cardiac Monitoring & Cardiac Rhythm Management Devices Market by Region
Based on region, the global cardiac monitoring & cardiac rhythm management devices market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World (ROW). North America dominated the global cardiac monitoring & cardiac rhythm management devices market, followed by Asia Pacific. The large share of North America in the global market can largely be attributed to increasing healthcare expenditure, growing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases in the region and rapid adoption of technologically advanced products. Moreover, factors like growing awareness among the patients and ease access to the treatment choices are also expected to contribute to the market growth in the region.
