Global Cardiac Rhythm Management Devices Market size was stood at USD 13.88 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 27.44 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period (2018-2032). North America dominated the global market with a share of 42.58% in 2018.

Cardiac rhythm management (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 management devices has been increased significantly during the past decade. Additionally, emerging nations are witnessing a huge demand for these  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 implant rate of more than 1000 units/million population. This higher rate of implants in developed nations represents higher adoption and patient preference for cardiac rhythm management devices.
