The major factors for the growth of the cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) market include the rising burden of heart failure and cardiac disorders and an increase in the geriatric population and rising sedentary lifestyle among the population.
The global population is aging rapidly, owing to reduced birth rates and increasing life expectancy. According to a report by the United Nation Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), the geriatric population in the Asia-Pacific region was around 617.1 million in 2015, accounting for more than half of the world’s total elderly population. It is estimated that, by 2050, Asia-Pacific will account for almost two-thirds of the world’s geriatric population. The rise in the geriatric population is one of the major reasons behind the increase in the cases of cardiovascular and heart failure.
According to the European Heart Network, 2017, every year, cardiovascular disease (CVD) causes 3.9 million deaths in Europe and over 1.8 million deaths in the European Union (EU). Furthermore, the sedentary lifestyle leads to a high prevalence of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity, and high alcohol consumption, which together contributes to the high incidence of cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, the sedentary lifestyle leading to high growth in cardiovascular disease cases. The increasing awareness of the treatment options is also expected to drive the market studied
Key Market Trends
CRT - Defibrillators is the Segment by Type Expected to hold Larger Share Over the Forecast Period
The CRT – Defibrillators (CRT-D) are the special devices for heart failure patients who are also at high risk for sudden cardiac death. While functioning like a normal pacemaker to treat slow heart rhythms, a CRT-D device also delivers small electrical impulses to the left and right ventricles to help them contract at the same time. This will help your heart pump more efficiently.
A CRT-D device can also treat dangerously fast heart rhythms (arrhythmias) that can lead to sudden cardiac arrest. If the device senses heartbeats that are dangerously fast, it delivers a shock to the heart. This shock (defibrillation) stops the abnormal rhythm. Without this life-saving therapy, the dangerously rapid rhythm could lead to death in just minutes.
The use of these devices has increased recently due to the increasing incidence and mortality of cardiovascular diseases (CVD). As per a 2019 report by the American Heart Association, CVD is the leading global cause of death, accounting for more than 17.6 million deaths per year in 2016, a number that is expected to grow to more than 23.6 million by 2030. This factor is expected to increase the demand of CRT-D in future, which will boost the market growth.
North America is Expected to Hold Largest Market Share over the Forecast Period
The healthcare expenditure in the United States is among the highest, as per the GDP, globally. More than 18% of GDP is spent on healthcare each year in the United States. The country accommodates several medical device companies working on CRT therapy from around the world, having a good direct distribution channel, as well as third-party services for equipment distribution in relation to medical/hospitals requirement, and home care needs.
Furthermore, there is a rise in technological advancement in the devices. During the forecast period, the growth is expected to be consistent, with the high requirement in hospitals, for several applications across the country. Thus, owing to all the above-mentioned factors, the market is expected to witness high growth over the forecast period.
The market studied is a consolidated market owing to the presence of few major market players. Some of the market players are Abbott Laboratories, BIOTRONIK, Boston Scientific Corporation, Lepu Medical Technology Co., Ltd., MEDICO S.p.A., Medtronic Plc, Microport Scientific Corporation, and Shree Pacetronix Ltd.
