Furthermore, growing availability of advanced medical products and rising demand for pulse oximeters in developing nations are also expected to fuel the expansion of market in the upcoming years. In addition to these, intensifying prevalence of heart diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, hypertension, diabetes and heart failure are predicted to offer lucrative opportunities to the market in the near future. According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the foremost cause of deaths globally. On an average, 17.9 million people die each year from CVDs. CVDs constitute to around 50% of the share of non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Moreover, it is estimated that the low- and middle-income nations bear around 85% of the burden of the premature deaths caused due to non-communicable diseases (NCDs). On the other hand, increasing focus of the government of nations worldwide to lower premature mortality from non-communicable diseases is also anticipated to drive the market growth. For instance, the WHO has initiated the Global NCD Action Plan (2013-2020), which aims to reduce the number of premature deaths from NCDs by 25% by the end of 2025 through its nine voluntary global targets. Out of these nine voluntary targets, two targets directly focus on preventing and controlling CVDs. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD SAMPLE REPORT
