Market Overview

Leadless cardiac pacemakers are medical devices that are used for the treatment of patients who are suffering from heart-related disorders, like arrhythmias. These pacemakers are expected to transform the cardiac rhythm management (CRM) market in the coming years with their potential to reduce complications and shorter recovery times.

  • The major factors driving the leadless pacemakers (LCP) market are aging population, growing burden of cardiovascular diseases, and technological advancements.
  • In addition, other important factors, like avoidance of lead-related complications, such as infection and disfigurement, and technological advancements add advantages to the leadless pacemakers in the market. They are retrievable for a longer time interval post-implantation, which is expected to create substantial opportunities in the market.

Scope of the Report

A pacemaker is a small medical device that uses electrical impulses, synthetically produced by its electrodes, to regulate the heart beat at a normal rate. It is usually recommended for certain heart conditions, like arrhythmia, tachycardia, and heart block. Leadless cardiac pacemaker is designed to achieve the same pacing results, but the process for implanting is different from the standard pacemakers. For a standard pacemaker, a surgical pocket is created to implant the pacemaker, and leads are then attached to the pacemaker. Leads are thin, soft, and insulated wires that carry the electrical impulse from the pacemaker to the heart and regulate the pace of the heart. However, a leadless pacemaker does not require any surgical pocket or leads.

Key Market Trends

Micra Transcatheter Pacing System is Expected to Witness Rapid Growth During the Forecast Period

In Leadless Cardiac Pacemaker Market, Nanostim and Micra TPS are key innovations. Both the devices are single-chamber pacemakers placed directly into the heart with a steerable catheter through the femoral vein. The procedure times with the Micra and Nanostim devices are shorter (lasting from 30 to 45 minutes), than those with the traditional pacemakers. They are self-contained intracardiac devices that include pacemaker electronics, battery, and leads. Both devices can be implanted in the same minimally invasive setting as some traditional pacemakers. Leadless pacemakers are expected to expand their market share rapidly, by displacing traditional cardiac pacemakers, during the forecast period. Micra transcatheter pacing system is in high demand due to rising burden of cardiovascular diseases, minimal post-implantation complications, and easy retrieval, which is expected to fuel the market. However, Abbott recalled its leadless pacemakers from the market following reports of sudden battery depletion. Moreover, in November 2017, Abbott issued a halt on implantations of Nanostim pacemakers, citing docking button issues, which continued till March 2018 but after fixing the issue, the company is working to relaunch the product.
