External Pacemaker Market Segmentation Synopsis
The global external pacemaker market has been segmented on the basis of product into pulse generator device and leads. The pulse generator device held the largest market share in the year 2018 and is expected to cross a value of USD 1517.91 million by the end of 2028. Moreover, the segment is anticipated to gain an incremental $ opportunity of USD 58.77 million in the year 2020 as compared to the previous year. Further, the segment is also expected to gain an absolute $ opportunity of USD 576.73 million during the forecast period. Pulse generators are used in conjunction with lead wire which are used to supply power to the electronic unit. The function of the pulse generator is to provide current supply to the connecting leads for artificial pumping of heart. The power source of the pulse generator are lithium ion batteries which works for 7-9 days and must be replaced for every new patient. With the help of pulse generator different modes of pacing can be done with single, double and triple chamber pacemakers. The pulse generator is also used in pacing and sensing for the desired heart rate.
External Pacemaker Market Drivers and Challenges
Growing Cases of Cardiovascular Diseases Globally
Globally, cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death. According to World Heart Federation, over 18 million people suffered from cardiovascular disease across the world in the year 2019. Almost 4 out of 5 CVD death occurred due to strokes and heart attack, and 1 out of 3 deaths occur prematurely in people under the age of 70. Unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, alcohol & tobacco consumption, high blood cholesterol, and diabetes are most common cause of cardiovascular disease. According to World Health Organization, Asia Pacific accounted for the highest number of deaths per 100,000 in the year 2019 with China being the country with most CVD deaths. Also, it was noted that higher incidence of heart attacks was reported from men in comparison to women. According to the Centers for Disease Control and prevention, an estimated 6 in 10 adults in the United States suffer from chronic diseases. Moreover, prevalence of self-reported inactivity among adults decreased from 40.1% to 26.9% and obesity has nearly tripled since 1975. Sedentary lifestyle, eating habits and various eternal factors have contributed to the declining health and with an evident rise in CVDs across the world, resulting in a rise in demand for efficient medical devices, such as external pacemakers, to minimize the progression of the disorder.
High Cost of Product and Unfavorable Reimbursement Policies
Various manufacturers rely on outside suppliers to provide many of the component parts. The production of an external pacemaker is not a linear process but an integrated one. Component parts such as the battery, leads, and the circuitry are constructed individually, then pieced together to form the final product. Moreover, the cost of microprocessors is also high due to the complexity involved in manufacturing of small motherboards. The high cost of the product and the unfavorable reimbursement policies are therefore anticipated to act as a barrier towards the growth of the global external pacemaker market.
