The global cardiac assist devices market is expected to witness a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period (2018-2023). In the segmentation based on products type, ventricular assist devices are expected to dominate the global market.
The continuously rapid advancements in the assist devices technologies and the novel applications of the existing treatments have led to an increase in the cardiac assist devices. In March 2015, FDA approved the Impella 2.5 System, which helps the patients in maintaining a stable heart function and circulation during certain high-risk percutaneous coronary intervention (HRPCI) procedures. Engineers are also exploring many other innovative solutions which helps in the implant success and is driving the cardiac assist devices market. Hence, the market is dependent upon the large number of innovations for growth.
Other factors responsible for the market growth are lack of donor's hearts for transplantation, aging population, and increasing heart diseases, these factors are leading to the increase in cardiac assist devices implantations in patients with severe heart complications.
The cardiac assist devices are highly expensive. The high costs of the devices and the low per capita income in the developing and underdeveloped countries is likely to impede the market of cardiac assist devices in low-income countries. The healthcare facility in these countries is still not well developed and advanced technologies are not affordable for the population owing to the high cost, thereby, restraining the growth of the market.
Other factors such as availability of alternative treatments, like pacemakers, and the risk associated with device implantation also hindering the market growth.
North America is the leading market because of the high rate of heart failure cases that are being diagnosed every year. Europe holds the second largest market is owing to the increasing geriatric population. The APAC regions have a large number of underserved patients suffering from cardiac diseases, hence, they represent an attractive future market for cardiac assist devices.
