CRM devices are extensively used to treat arrhythmia, bradycardia, tachycardia, and sudden cardiac arrests. Since the prevalence of cardiac rhythm conditions is increasing, the adoption of cardiac rhythm management devices has been increased significantly during the past decade.

Additionally, emerging nations are witnessing a huge demand for cardiac rhythm management devices due to a higher prevalence of cardiac conditions, increasing awareness about products amongst the population, and increasing per capita income. According to the European Cardiac Society, in 2017, certain countries in Western Europe were having an implant rate of more than 1000 units/million population. This higher rate of implants in developed nations represents higher adoption and patient preference for CRM devices.

Market Segmentation

"Defibrillator is expected to register attractive compound annual growth over the forecast period"

Defibrillators are generally used to treat arrhythmia and out-of-hospital cardiac arrests. Implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is highly recommended by physicians to treat irregular heartbeat, also it delivers electric shocks with the aim to restore the heartbeat. External defibrillators are widely being installed in developed as well as emerging nations in order to deal with the increasing prevalence of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests.

Moreover, in certain countries, it is mandatory to install external defibrillators at public places with the aim to offer easy access to the cardiac patient. Defibrillators accounted for an estimated 49.0% of the share in the cardiac rhythm management devices market in 2018.

To get details on market share, speak to analyst
