The global implantable cardioverter defibrillator market size which was valued at USD 6,684.4 Million in 2018, is projected to reach USD 8,343.4 Million by the end of 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 2.8%.

An implantable cardioverter-defibrillator is an implantable electronic device which is effective for the treatment of sudden cardiac arrest as well as for arrhythmia. The device can be programmed to detect an abnormal heart rate and to deliver electric shocks as per requirement.

According to data published by the National Institutes of Health in 2016, an estimated 450,000 population suffered from sudden cardiac death. Additionally, the prevalence of sudden cardiac arrest is rapidly increasing in emerging nations such as China, India, and Brazil. Growth of certain risk factors such as smoking, sedentary lifestyle and obesity are projected to increase the prevalence of sudden cardiac arrest which is expected to boost the demand for ICD during the forecast period.

"Subcutaneous ICD is expected to emerge as the most attractive type"

Subcutaneous ICD is slightly different than traditional transvenous ICD as the lead of subcutaneous ICD remains completely outside of the heart chambers. Moreover, it requires higher battery capacity and is larger in size as compared to transvenous ICD. In October 2012, Boston Scientific Corporation launched the world’s first subcutaneous ICD in the global market.

As advanced ICD has a lesser risk of lead poisoning as compared to the transvenous ICD, the implantable cardioverter defibrillator market is expected to witness higher adoption of subcutaneous ICD during the forecast period. Transvenous ICD accounted for a significant market share in 2018. Among the product types, subcutaneous ICD is expected to be the fastest-growing segment globally.

In terms of transvenous ICD, the market is categorized into single-chamber ICD, dual-chamber ICD, and CRT-D (cardiac resynchronization therapy- defibrillator). The CRT-D accounted for the maximum market share in 2018, owing to the higher adoption of the device and higher acquisition cost, most prominently in developed countries. Additionally, the hospitals & clinics in the end user segment are expected to register comparatively higher share in the implantable cardioverter defibrillator market share owing to the higher prevalence of sudden cardiac arrests.
