Based on our analysis, the global market witnessed a huge decline of -4.6% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. 

The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with cardiovascular devices witnessing a negative demand shock across all regions amid the pandemic. The sudden rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over. The growth of the global market is driven by a significant rise in the prevalence of chronic heart diseases. This provides the momentum towards the higher adoption of technologically advanced cardiology devices for diagnostic and surgical purposes. Furthermore, the significant reduction in critical cardiovascular therapeutic devices prices such as coronary stents boosts the expansion of this market, especially in emerging markets such as India. For example, according to a study by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (HSPH), a reduction in prices for coronary stents in the Indian state of Maharashtra led to a 43.0% increase in the number of individuals who go through heart procedures.

As the demand for these devices is expected to sustain strong growth, key market players are anticipated to show robust involvement in R&D initiatives.

Reduction in Hospital Visits for Non-urgent Procedures amid COVID-19 Hampers Growth

The impact of COVID-19 on the global market has been negative due to deferral in elective cardiovascular procedures globally as the number of hospital visits declined. While few procedures are considered urgent, some of them were rescheduled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. For example, according to the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI), percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for an acute heart attack is considered urgent. Still, a PCI for stable ischemic heart disease can be delayed.

Furthermore, the pandemic has negatively impacted the market due to the reduced diagnostic procedures across the globe because of the reserved resources for the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the start of the pandemic, regular check-ups and diagnoses have been postponed. Adding to it, many key players have witnessed a decline in sales due to the cancellation of procedures. Prominent companies such as Medtronic and Boston Scientific Corporation reported strong sales declines in their annual revenues of FY 2020.

For instance, Boston Scientific Corporation, an essential company in the global market, reported a decrease of -7.9% in revenue compared to FY 2019. Also, other players such as Abbott and LivaNova PLC also recorded substantial declines in the sales performance of their cardiovascular device products segment by 2.9% and 12.1%, respectively.

Moreover, investors are focused on expanding the availability of economical cardiovascular devices in countries such as India, China, Mexico, and others. This, in turn, is expected to attract huge cardiovascular devices market share in the upcoming years.

For instance, in February 2020, AliveCor, a leading AI-based ECG technology and enterprise cardiac solution provider, announced the launch of KardiaMobile, used to record, store and transfer single-channel electrocardiogram rhythms in the Mexico region from the Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risk. This launch is due to the partnership between AliveCor and Inpharamo, a Mexico-based medical solutions company.


Increasing Barriers in R&D Activities to Restrict Market Growth

Limitations involved in the advancement of innovative and technologically advanced cardiovascular devices are a strong R&D environment. Various key players are focused on their capacity to invest in futuristic R&D programs related to cardiac devices due to the ineffective processes within the reimbursement models. For instance, in the countries that advocate the policies of price caps on life-saving stents, manufacturers might be less inclined towards the development of new products or even in introducing advanced cardiac devices with high costs in these markets.

Apart from barriers in R&D programs in this market, rigid regulatory policies are also one of the reasons restraining the market. The devices innovated by the key players without complying with regulatory guidelines cannot be launched in the market for commercial use resulting in loss of significant investment by the manufacturers. For Instance, the U.S. FDA announced that Abbott had recalled its NC Traveler RX Coronary Dilatation Catheters, as the balloons were not deflating as they were intended to. Such Limitations might lower the cardiovascular devices market growth.
