This research report on the global cardiac pacemaker market covers sizing and forecast, share, industry trends, growth drivers, and vendor analysis. The study includes insights by products (MRI-conditional and traditional pacemakers), technology (dual-chamber, single chamber, and biventricular pacemakers/CRT-P), implantability (implantable and external), end-users (hospitals, specialty cardiology centers (SSC), and Ambulatory surgery centers (ASC), and geography (North America, Europe, APAC, Latin America, and MEA).
The growing prevalence of abnormal cardiac rhythm disorders, coupled with the increasing elderly population, which is prone to cardiac arrhythmias, is expected to drive the cardiac pacemaker market. Advancements in technology and engineering provide clinicians innovative ways to care for the aging population. Cardiac pacing, particularly, has witnessed a series of game-changing technologies in the past several years spurred by low-power electronics, high-density batteries, and innovative software designs. Such innovations are expected to drive the market.
Several government bodies and private organizations are involved in spreading awareness, information, and support for cardiovascular diseases, thereby affecting the market positively. The growing patient population with cardiac arrhythmias globally requires advanced and cost-effective treatment options with minimal side-effects and complications.
The cardiac pacemaker market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 2% during the period 2019–2025.
This research report includes detailed segmentation by products, technology, implantability, end-user, and geography.
Insights by Products
The MRI-conditional segment accounted for over 50% of market revenue share in 2019 and is expected to grow at a faster rate in the near future as several pieces of research have confirmed that over 70% of patients implanted with pacemakers require MRI scan during their lifespan. Many public organizations recommend implanting MRI-conditional ones to minimize the risk associated with MRI scans. Moreover, several public and private insurance companies offer reimbursement coverage for MRI scans for patients implanted with MRI-conditional devices, which increase affordability thereby driving the market. Advancements in technology are influencing the market positively as traditional pacemakers are expected to malfunction, thus leading to complications. Hence, the increased complications related to traditional devices are likely to decrease the share of this equipment.
Insights by Technology
Dual-chamber technology is accounted for the major share. This type of technology is likely to continue its dominance due to the increasing number of patients with abnormal heart rhythm defects. These models are highly efficient in treating cardiac arrhythmias. Besides, the number of vendors offering such pacemakers is growing as many patients prefer this type.
Single chamber devices help to minimize the risk of infections related to MRI scans and are cost-effective. The demand for single chamber ones are increasing in developing and low-income countries.
Biventricular cardiac pacemakers/CRT-P is growing at a rapid pace as these devices minimize heart failure chances and efficiently treat rhythm disorders. All these advantages, along with increased public and private reimbursement coverage, are expected to boost the segment.
Insights by Implantability
Implantable pacemakers are growing at a rapid pace due to the increase in the geriatric population and the rise in arrhythmia and abnormal cardiovascular disorder prevalence rates. Advancements in technology, including the introduction of leadless, MRI-compatible, and other remote monitoring pacemaker devices have fueled the demand for implantable ones, and the segment is expected to contribute significantly to the market. External pacemakers are expected to grow at a steady pace due to the increased number of patients opting for temporary cardiac devices.
Insights by End-user
Hospitals are the major end-user segment as a significant number of patients prefer to undergo surgeries in these settings due to better reimbursement policies. The growing aging population and the increasing prevalence of abnormal cardiovascular disorders are the other major factors contributing to the increase in implantation in hospitals.
Specialty cardiology centers (SCCs) are expected to grow at a significant rate owing to the availability of sophisticated infrastructure and the availability of advanced technology cardiac pacemakers these centers. In addition, SCCs have a high presence of highly skilled cardiovascular surgeons.
Ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) are cost-effective clinics and offer high-quality care with minimal indirect treatment costs. These centers are equipped with advanced diagnostic and treatment equipment without complex administrative procedures. Such factors are likely to boost the prospects of the market.
Insights by Geography
North America accounts for a major share in the global cardiac pacemaker market. It is expected to grow at a steady rate on account of the growing volume of surgeries for treating several abnormal heart rhythms and the availability of advanced healthcare infrastructure and constant technological innovations. Europe is likely to grow at a healthy rate due to the accessibility of advanced healthcare services, especially for heart valve repair and replacement procedures. Also, the increasing incidence of abnormal heart rhythm, the rapid adoption of advanced cardiac pacemakers, and high healthcare expenditures are projected to increase the European market. Factors responsible for the growth of APAC are vendors' initiatives in spreading awareness and the rise in abnormal rhythm incidences due to change in living patterns, stress, and old age.
