Key Market Drivers:
Increase in the cardiovascular diseases cases
The leading cause of death worldwide is cardiovascular disease (CVD). According to the World Health Organization (WHO), CVD is the leading cause of death worldwide, with approximately 30 million people suffering from a heart attack or stroke each year. According to the American Heart Association, nearly half of all adults in the United States have some form of cardiovascular disease. More than 130 million adults, or 45.1% of the US population, are expected to have CVD by 2035. Family history, ethnicity, and age are all major risk factors for CVD. Tobacco use, high blood pressure (hypertension), high cholesterol, obesity, physical inactivity, diabetes, unhealthy diets, and alcohol consumption are all risk factors.
The prevalence of diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemia, and obesity has increased, Because of lifestyle changes, which contributes to the global rise in CVD. Pre-monitoring and pre-diagnosis can prevent the majority of CVDs. Similarly, abnormalities in the heart's function, known as arrhythmias, can be avoided with early detection. As a result, the demand for CM and CRM devices is growing, as these devices help save patients who are at high risk of cardiac arrest.
Rising patient awareness
This factor has had an impact on market growth in emerging economies, where the adoption of advanced treatment devices is low. There are several innovative and implantable-assisted products on the market; however, surgeons and patients in developing economies are unaware of the devices, stifling market growth. This factor is likely to have less of an impact in the future, as manufacturers have collaborated with government hospitals to raise awareness about novel cardiac monitoring and cardiac rhythm management devices.
Presence of significant unmet medical needs
The market's major players have launched technologically advanced devices in developing and underdeveloped economies. For example, Boston Scientific Corporation attempted to obtain regulatory approval for its S-ICD system in order to market it throughout Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. The major manufacturers have worked with government agencies to develop effective and innovative cardiac solutions.
Furthermore, government and private sector officials have worked to provide favorable reimbursement schemes for cardiac disorders treatment in developing and underdeveloped economies. Furthermore, the rise in awareness, disposable income, and approvals for technologically advanced devices is expected to have a significant impact on the market during the forecast period.
Key Market Challenges:
Threats of associated cybersecurity flaws
Cyber-security flaws in medical devices, particularly CIEDs, where the potential for reprogramming or rendering the device inoperable exists, are a major source of concern among patients and healthcare providers. According to a Department of Homeland Security alert issued in 2019, up to 750,000 Medtronic PLC heart devices contained a serious cybersecurity vulnerability that could allow an attacker with sophisticated insider knowledge to harm a patient by changing programming on an implanted defibrillator.
The US food and drug administration (FDA) recalled nearly 500,000 implantable pacemakers in 2017 due to their potential vulnerability to hacking. As a result, the market's growth is limited to some extent.
While cardiac monitoring devices are useful for diagnosing and monitoring heart conditions, other treatments such as medication and surgery can also be effective. Various medications, for example, are used to treat heart conditions such as high blood pressure, heart failure, and arrhythmias. These medications can aid in the control of symptoms, the prevention of complications, and the improvement of heart function.
Surgical procedures may be required in some cases to treat heart conditions. Furthermore, coronary artery bypass surgery can be used to treat blocked arteries, whereas valve replacement surgery can repair or replace damaged heart valves. In some cases, such alternatives may reduce the demand for cardiac monitoring devices.
Key Market Opportunities:
The cardiac monitoring market presents several opportunities for growth and expansion in the coming years.
Adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies: When used to treat cardiac arrhythmias, CIEDs have been linked to increased survival and quality of life. However, CIED-associated infections are a significant complication associated with their use. Infections from CIEDs are most common in patients who have an implantable cardioverter defibrillator or a cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator. According to the European Heart Journal, the rate of CIED infections in pacemakers was 1.19%, 1.91% in implantable cardioverter-defibrillators, 2.18% in cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemakers (CRT-Ps), and 3.35% in CRT defibrillators (CRTDs).
To improve CIED stabilization in the subcutaneous pocket and to elute the antibiotics minocycline and rifampin, Medtronic offers an absorbable, multifilament mesh envelope (TYRX Absorbable Antibacterial Envelope). These envelopes are intended for use with cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs), such as pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs). An international randomized controlled trial published in 2019 found that the envelope reduced the incidence of infection by 40% when compared to standard-of-care infection prevention alone.
Personalized medicine: Personalized medicine, also known as precision medicine, is a healthcare approach that seeks to tailor medical treatment and prevention to each patient's unique characteristics. It entails using a patient's genetic, molecular, and clinical information to make more informed health and treatment decisions. Personalized medicine in the context of cardiac monitoring entails using data from cardiac monitoring devices to develop individualized treatment plans based on a patient's specific needs.
An implantable cardiac monitor, for example, can be used to continuously monitor a patient's heart function, allowing healthcare providers to detect changes and adjust treatment plans accordingly. Wearable devices can also be used to track a patient's physical activity, sleep patterns, and other health indicators, allowing for personalized diet, exercise, and other lifestyle recommendations. Personalized medicine is becoming more feasible as advances in data analytics and machine learning enable healthcare providers to analyze large amounts of patient data and develop more accurate predictive models.
These tools can assist in identifying patients who are at a higher risk of developing heart disease, predicting the likelihood of complications, and developing personalized treatment plans tailored to the patient's specific needs. Overall, personalized medicine has a high potential for improving patient outcomes in cardiovascular disease by enabling more precise diagnoses, more effective treatments, and better long-term management of heart conditions.
