Factors Driving Market Growth:

  • Increasing prevalence of cardiac diseases
  • Growing geriatric population
  • Notable technological advancements
  • Investments from market players
  • Adoption of advanced defibrillator devices
  • Rise in demand for quality medical care
  • Prevalence of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA)

Expansion Opportunities and Market Propellants:

The market’s growth is further accentuated by strategies such as installing defibrillators in public spaces like offices, schools, shopping malls, grocery stores, and airports. Additionally, key market players are focusing on public access defibrillators and implementing global training and awareness programs. The constant innovation of next-generation external defibrillators is also expected to create promising opportunities. These advancements enhance safety and efficacy, playing a vital role in identifying and addressing device-related issues and improving industry capabilities. Defibrillators are crucial in tackling Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), a life-threatening condition that stands as a leading global cause of mortality and can be successfully managed through early defibrillation.

Rising Prevalence and Demand in the UK:

The British Heart Foundation’s data from August 2022 reveals that over 7.6 million individuals in the United Kingdom were grappling with heart or circulatory diseases in 2021. The surging incidence of cardiovascular diseases has consequently led to an amplified demand for automated external defibrillators, acting as a key impetus for market growth throughout the projected timeframe.

Demand Surge from Cardiovascular Surgeries:

A surge in cardiovascular surgeries adds to the momentum, as reflected by the British Heart Foundation’s January 2022 data, indicating that around 284,000 individuals were awaiting critical heart operations and cardiac procedures by November 2021. This heightened need for surgical interventions reinforces the requirement for automated external defibrillators, thereby driving market expansion.

Technological Advancements and Government Support:

Technological progress and amplified government support are pivotal to market growth. A notable example is the collaboration between St John Ambulance Australia and Zoll Medical Australia, resulting in the launch of the St. John-branded public access defibrillator in Australia. This exemplifies a commitment to advancing Automated External Defibrillator (AED) technology.

Government Policies and Regulatory Backing:

Supportive policies from governments, regulatory bodies, and healthcare organizations are poised to drive growth. For instance, the Social Affairs Commission of the Chamber in Italy approved a law on AEDs in July 2021, allocating approximately 10 million EUR (around USD 11.36 million) for public access AED implementation over five years. In Australia, SA Ambulance Service (SAAS) recommends early defibrillator use, especially AEDs, to enhance survival chances.

Advancements in Device Technology:

Advancements have led to compact and user-friendly modern external defibrillators, minimizing maintenance efforts and increasing cost-effectiveness. In the U.S., AED prices range between USD 900 and 2,000. For instance, AED USA offers the Zoll AED Plus Fully Automatic defibrillators at USD 1,699 and the ZOLL AED three semi-automatic at USD 1,895. Manual external defibrillators span from USD 1,000 to 25,000. Noteworthy technological trends include personal AEDs for home use, drone-assisted cardiac arrest response, AED tracking solutions, and IoT integration.

Future Outlook and Potential Challenges:

The automated external defibrillators market is poised for robust expansion due to escalating cardiovascular disease burdens and continuous launches of advanced devices. Nevertheless, regulatory constraints and a lack of awareness regarding sudden cardiac arrest interventions might present obstacles to growth in the forthcoming years.

The Global Automated External Defibrillator Market is segmented into product type, patient type, end user, regional distribution, and company.

Based on product type, the fully automated external defibrillators market segment currently dominates the global external defibrillators market by product type and is projected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the growing initiatives by major companies, increased adoption of defibrillators in healthcare facilities, and the implementation of various public access defibrillation programs. On the other hand, the wearable cardioverter defibrillator market segment is expected to experience significant growth in the forecast period due to the rising prevalence of cardiovascular disorders, the growing elderly population, and the user-friendly nature of this non-invasive device.

Based on region, North America segment is expected to grow during the forecast period.  North America has established a significant market share in the external defibrillators sector in 2021 and is projected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. This can be attributed to the increasing installation of external defibrillators in hospitals as well as other public places such as hotels, schools, railway stations, highways, and more. On the other hand, Asia-Pacific is expected to exhibit the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in the external defibrillators market, driven by the growing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, rising disposable incomes in countries like India and China, escalating healthcare costs, and recent advancements in healthcare infrastructure.
