The automated external defibrillator market is expected to register a CAGR of 8.3% during the forecast period. Certain factors that are driving the market growth include rising prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, technological advancements in the field of defibrillators, and increasing investments by government and private players.

According to World Health Organization (WHO) 2018 report, globally cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the number one cause of death, an estimated 17.9 million each year suffer with cardiovascular diseases. Four out of five cardiovascular deaths are due to strokes and heart attacks, and one third of deaths occur prematurely in people under 70 years of age. A two-thirds of CVD-related deaths account from low - and middle-income countries. The statistics show the need for early detection and proper management, which ultimately help in the growth of the market, globally. The rise in the technological advancements in defibrillators and an increase in investments from private players help in the growth of the market studied.

However, the devices face much stricter regulations compared to those of other categories, taking longer time and labor for the complete approval process, which is one of the biggest restraining factors of the market. For example, in 2015, the US FDA ordered PMA approval for new and existing automated external defibrillators, citing manufacturing issues, and has recalled more than 2 million devices since 2005 for stricter regulations, thus hindering the growth of the market. Additionally, there is a lack of awareness among people about taking corrective actions at the earliest in relation to sudden cardiac arrest, especially in the emerging markets, which also hampers the growth of the market.

Key Market Trends

Semi-automated External Defibrillators Segment is Expected to Hold Significant Market Share in the Automated External Defibrillator Market
  • Semi-automated external defibrillator (SAED) is a portable device that checks the heart’s rhythm and allows the user to send an electric shock to the heart, for restoring the heart’s normal rhythm. It is used to treat sudden cardiac arrests in patients.
  • The major difference between a SAED and a fully-automated external defibrillator (FAED) is that the FAED sends a shock automatically to the heart, after verbally preparing the patient to receive the shock.
  • The SAED allows the patient to take the decision of sending a shock, after verbally requesting them; the SAED contains a shock button. One of the factors contributing to the increase in SAED demand is its usage in countries with high medical tourism, globally, across a range of multi-specialty hospitals. In the case of FAEDs, it should be made sure that no one is touching the patient, to avoid injury to themselves or the patient.
  • Furthermore, according to the World Heart Federation, coronary heart disease is now the leading cause of death worldwide. An estimated 3.8 million men and 3.4 million women die each year from coronary heart disease. Thus, owing to above factors the segment is expected to grow in coming years.
North America Dominates the Market and is Expected to Continue the Same during the Forecast Period

North America is expected to dominate the market, owing to the increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases and advancement in medical technology. The high healthcare expenditure and supportive government policies help the region to dominate the market.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2017, coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease, killing approximately 365,914 people in the United States.

Europe is estimated to follow North America due to the rising prevalence of coronary artery diseases and a high number of sudden cardiac arrests, with rising investments by companies operating in the region.

Competitive Landscape

The automated external defibrillator market is consolidated competitive, with the presence of few major players. Companies, like Asahi Kasei Corporation, Cardiac Science, Koninklijke Philips NV, Medtronic PLC, Nihon Kohden Corporation, Schiller, Shenzhen Mindray Bio-Medical Electronics Co. Ltd, and Stryker Corporation, among others, hold the substantial share in the market.
