According to a recent market research report published by Transparency Market Research, the global defibrillators market is estimated to expand at a CAGR of 6.2% during the period between 2013 and 2019. The report, titled “Defibrillators Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 – 2019,” projects the global defibrillators market to be worth US$14.2 bn by 2019. The overall market stood at a valuation of US$9.3 bn in 2012.
Defibrillators play an important role in cardiac arrhythmia and let natural pacemaker cells re-establish the normal cardiac rhythm. Changes in lifestyle and food habits have led to an increase in the prevalence of various cardiac disorders resulting in sudden cardiac arrest and death. In sudden cardiac arrest, ventricular fibrillation leads to heart muscles beating irregularly. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) alone cannot provide effective results in these cases and hence, defibrillators are needed.

The report points out that the growing prevalence of cardiovascular disorders and awareness campaigns for automated external defibrillators (AEDs) have augmented the growth of the global defibrillators market. Technological advancements and government initiatives have further fuelled the demand for defibrillators. However, the lack of awareness about sudden cardiac arrests and frequent recalls of faulty defibrillators will play spoilsport in the growth of the market during the forecast period. The overall market has a huge opportunity to grow across emerging economies.
On the basis of type of defibrillators, the report segments the global defibrillators market into automated external defibrillators (AEDs), advanced life support (ALS) defibrillators, wearable defibrillators, and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD). The implantable defibrillators devices segment held the majority of the market in 2012, followed by advanced life support defibrillators. The high demand for ICDs can be attributed to the rise in ICD implantations as a precautionary measure towards the prevention of sudden cardiac arrests.
In terms of end users, the report categorizes the global defibrillators market into home, hospitals, emergency medical services, and public access. Hospitals account for over 90% of the total market revenue. During the forecast horizon, the rise in the number of AED installations at hospitals and business workplaces is expected to boost the overall market.
