Market Overview

The global population is around 7.5 billion, and it is increasing. Along with the rising population, the number of older people is also increasing, and the number of deaths due to cardiovascular diseases is on the rise.

  • Cardiovascular diseases are among the leading causes of premature deaths in the world. These diseases include heart attacks, strokes, and other circulatory diseases.
  • According to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 630,000 Americans die due to heart disease, every year, which accounts for one in every four deaths in the United States.
  • Every year, the percentage of people suffering from cardiac diseases is increasing, and this population is expected to use diagnostic tests, such as ECG. Hence, the usage of ECG telemetry devices is also expected to increase. Thus, the increased rate of cardiovascular diseases is driving the ECG telemetry devices market.
  • Furthermore, factors, like the rising number of home care monitoring devices and increase in the number of service providers, are driving the market. 
  • Advances in wireless sensor networking have created various opportunities in the healthcare system and are directly affecting the ECG telemetry devices market in a positive manner.
  • The developing and developed countries are now relying on technology to assist day-to-day living. This has led to the increased use of home care monitoring devices. Due to such devices, people are able to track their health records easily at their homes.
  •  The demand for homecare monitoring devices is increasing, as it is reducing cost and the time taken in hospitals for heart checkups.
  • For life-threatening diseases, like cardiovascular disorders, regular checkup of the heart is very important, and this is made easy by homecare monitoring devices. Hence, these devices are helping the growth of the ECG telemetry devices market.

Scope of the Report

ECG telemetry devices are used in the monitoring of electrical activities of the heart. These devices help in the detection of electrical impulses generated by cardiac tissues, which are then translated into waveforms.

Key Market Trends

Arrhythmias Application Segment is Expected to Witness Rapid Growth

An electrocardiogram is one of the most useful non-invasive tools used for the diagnoses of cardiac diseases. Owing to the developments in telecommunication infrastructure, several developments were made in the field of telemetry cardiac devices. Telemetry ECG devices help in the easy and fast ECG monitoring of patients suffering from cardiac disorders.

Arrhythmia is a condition, in which the heart rhythm becomes abnormal. The electrical impulses occur too fast or too slow, leading to the reduced efficiency of the heart to pump blood. For the diagnoses of arrhythmias, various devices are used. However, ECG telemetry devices are the most effective tools for the detection of arrhythmias. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 2.7-6.1 million people in the United States suffer from arrhythmias, and with the rapid increase in the aging population, this number is expected to rise in the future. In the United States, around 2% of the population below the age of 65 and 9% above the age of 65 suffer from arrhythmias.

As the prevalence of arrhythmia is expected to rise, the need for better diagnostic tools is increasing. Hence, ECG telemetry devices are of much significance, as they provide easier and faster monitoring of the heart.

North America is Expected to Dominate the Market

Cardiovascular diseases are the major cause of deaths in the United States and the primary cause of acute care and physician visits.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the United States, cardiovascular diseases cause around 610,000 deaths, every year, and these diseases account for almost one in every four deaths.

Every year, about 735,000 people suffer from heart attacks. Thus, the rise in the number of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and heart attacks lead to an increased demand for diagnostic tools, in the country.

The cardiovascular diagnostic sector prefers ECG telemetry devices, as they are the easiest and fastest tools for the diagnoses of CVDs. The United States provides good reimbursement facilities for patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases. This factor is helping the growth of the ECG telemetry devices market. In the United States, government initiatives, such as ‘A Public Health Action Plan to Prevent Heart Disease and Stroke’, are also increasing the utilization of novel technologies. This is ultimately contributing to the growth of the ECG telemetry devices market in the United States.

Additionally, investments in patient healthcare are increasing in the United States, which is ultimately helping the growth of the ECG telemetry devices market. Currently, the United States dominates the ECG telemetry devices market, and it had the largest market size in 2017.
