Market Overview

Increase in prevalence of heart diseases worldwide is the primary factor driving the electrocardiograph (ECG) market globally. According to the WHO, cardiovascular disease is one of the leading cause of death worldwide. It is estimated that cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) take the lives of 17.9 million people every year, 31% of all global deaths. In addition, an increase in demand for the invasive techniques and lifestyle changes bolstering the electrocardiograph (ECG) market. Furthermore, technological advancements and growing accessibility to the advanced treatments are expected to boost the electrocardiograph (ECG) market.

In many of the developing countries, owing to the cost-effective factor, physicians are forced to use traditional ECG devices instead of the latest high-end devices. Hence, high cost for buying and maintaining, and lack of technical skills are hindering the growth of the market in developing regions. In developed regions, the new sales is almost equal to the replacement rate because of already well- established infrastructure.

Scope of the Report

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a test used to check the functioning of the heart by measuring the electrical activity of the heart. An ECG measures and records the electrical activity that passes through the heart. An ECG may be recommended if a patient is experiencing arrhythmia, chest pain, or palpitations and an abnormal ECG result can be a signal of a number of different heart conditions. A normal heartbeat on ECG will show the timing of the top and lower chambers.
