Demand for Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators to Remain Strong

The global active implantable medical devices market is assessed on the basis of the product type, procedure, and the end user. Based on the product type, the market is classified into implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD), cardiac pacemaker, nerve stimulators, cochlear implants, ventricular assist devices (VAD), and insertable cardiac monitor (implantable monitoring devices). Among these, the demand for implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) is greater at present and is expected to remain so over the next few years. However, insertable cardiac monitors are expected to register a robust rise in their demand in the near future, thanks to the increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases across the world.

Based on the procedure, the market is categorized into cardiovascular implants, neurological implants, and hearing implants. By the end user, the market is divided into hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, and specialty clinics. With significantly rising investments, the hospital sector is likely to emerge as the most prominent end user of active implantable medical devices in the years to come.
