The global electrophysiology devices market was valued at US$ 5.54 billion in 2019 and expected to reach US$ 10.72 billion by 2027 and poised to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) 8.6% during the forecast period 2020 to 2027.
Increasing application of electrophysiology devices in the treatment and diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases that includes atrial fibrillation, rising demand for cardiac rhythm management devices used for continuous monitoring and increasing implementation of these devices in out-of-hospital settings are some of the high impact rendering growth drivers for the market.Growing prevalence of cardiac arrest and heart failure (HF) cases among the millennial owing to lifestyle habits such as excessive alcohol consumption and smoking is the other major factor that propels the market growth.
Introduction of new technologies that includes laser ablation, cryoablation, and ultrasound ablation as well as advanced mapping technologies are also anticipated to boost the demand of electrophysiology devices over the forecast period. Besides this, the presence of strict regulations related to the application of electrophysiology devices, high costs associated with these products, and the availability of alternative therapies are the key factors projected to impede the market growth.
Atrial fibrillation leads the indication segment in the global electrophysiology devices market for the year 2019. It is a general type of arrhythmia related to high risk of blood clotting and stroke. In many cases, it remains undiagnosed in medical practices using conventional monitoring that result in inadequate treatment at the right time. Consequently, monitoring of atrial fibrillation involves enhanced technological devices for diagnosis that mitigates the limitations imposed by conventional technologies.
Electrophysiology diagnostic devices and treatment devices are two major application segments studied in this report. Diagnostic devices application segment accounted for the largest value share in 2019. Significant application of cardiac monitors as a standard monitoring and diagnostic tool for arrhythmias is one of the major factors attributing for the largest share of the market.
Subsequently, cardiac monitors dominated the electrophysiology diagnostic segment in 2019. The segment includes Electrocardiograph (ECG) monitors, holter monitoring devices, and Insertable Cardiac Monitors (ICM). Increasing application of these devices in the interventional medical procedures for example catheter placement along with the introduction of digital and portable systems are some of the major factors expected to propel the growth of the segment during the forthcoming years.
On the other hand, the electrophysiology treatment devices segment offers lucrative growth opportunity in the coming years. Pacemakers emerged as the largest sub-segment in the year 2019. Increasing incidences of different forms of arrhythmia is one of the prime factors attributing for its rapid growth. Besides this, Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) predicted to witness the highest growth rate over the analysis period. According to the CDC report, increase in the number of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) cases is a major threat to the population of the United States. Increased use of AEDs has proved useful in reducing the number of deaths among patients suffering from cardiac arrest outside hospitals.
North America emerged as a global leader in the global electrophysiology devices market ad account for the largest value share. The growth of the region is primarily because of rising prevalence of cardiac arrest cases, Heart Failure (HF), and cardiac arrhythmia as a result of smoking, an unhealthy lifestyle, and alcohol consumption. The favorable reimbursement policies and presence of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure are anticipated to drive the growth of the region over the analysis period.
On the contrary, the Asia Pacific electrophysiology devices market has significant presence of untapped opportunities in reference to unmet medical requirements along with rapid growth in the incidence rates of target diseases. Furthermore, increasing patient awareness, improving healthcare infrastructure, and rising healthcare expenditure levels in the region are anticipated to assist manufacturers in grabbing maximum advantage on these available opportunities. Rapid developments in the healthcare infrastructure coupled with rise in disposable income in emerging economies such as China and India are likely to provide new opportunities and avenues for the market players to get maximum benefit over the forecast period.
