The increasing incidence of cardiovascular diseases and the growing geriatric population are the most significant factors, driving market growth. According to a report by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, more than 11% of China's Population were aged 65 years or over, in 2019. Furthermore, China’s population is aging at a faster rate than almost all other countries of Asia-Pacific, which is in part, due to the long run of China’s one-child policy and a dramatic increase in healthcare facilities.
The aging process is commonly associated with increased vascular rigidity and decreased vascular compliance. Elderly patients have a high risk of developing cardiovascular disorders, such as peripheral arterial disease (PAD), aortic disease, and venous thromboembolism (VTE). This is primarily due to age-related alterations in vascular structure and rigidity, further compounded by longer exposure to cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors. Furthermore, other factors, such as the rapid technological advances and increasing awareness among the population, are supplementing the market growth.
Key Market Trends
ECG Dominated the Diagnostic and Monitoring Segment
- On the diagnostic and monitoring front, new generations of portable and compact ECG are driving their greater adoption, especially in the home healthcare segment. The rising awareness and demand for minimally-invasive surgeries are driving the demand for coronary stents and valves.
- According to the National Center for Cardiovascular Diseases, in 2017, there were around 290 million patients suffering from cardiovascular disease in China. Furthermore, rising geriatric population and increasing incidence rates of cardiovascular diseases, such as arrhythmias, stroke, and high blood pressure, are driving the demand for cardiac rhythm management devices, including pacemakers and implantable defibrillators.
Several local players, along with global medical device manufacturers, operate in the Chinese market. Local players dominate in the stent, catheter, and graft segments. However, the quality of products from global companies is perceived as superior. Thus, the premium segment of the cardiovascular devices market is dominated by global manufacturers.
