A pacemaker is inserted in the chest to help manage the heartbeat of patient. It is used from preventing the heart from beating slowly. It requires surgical procedure to insert a pacemaker in the chest. Pacemaker is also known as cardiac pacing device. The pacemaker starts sending the electrical signals if the heartbeat is slow to correct the beat. The new pacemakers have the sensors which detect the body motion or breathing rate and signals the device to increase the heart rate through the exercise, as per needed. Pacemaker has 2 parts: pulse generator and lead (electrodes). The pacemaker would stop functioning because of some electrical involvement, such as Cell phones, Security systems, medical equipment, and power-generating equipment.
Some pacemakers can also help the chambers of heartbeat in sync. Brazil cardiac pacemakers market would witness a significant growth during the forecast period (2021 - 2028), owing to increasing need of cardiac pacemaker implantation due to high prevalence of Chagas disease and growing trend of medical tourism in Brazil.
Brazil cardiac pacemakers market is estimated to be valued at US$ 305 million in 2021 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 2.4% over the forecast period (2021-2028).

Various government and private organizations are focused on initiatives for increasing awareness regarding Chagas disease, which is expected to increase treatment rate, and adoption rate of cardiac pacemakers in Brazil.
The increasing product launches and approvals are expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period.
For instance, in August 2017, the U.S. FDA assured an alert regarding the security flaws in 465, 000 pacemakers of Abbott Laboratories and recalled them, stating that, these pacemaker may be vulnerable to hacking.
According to U.S. FDA, security flaws allows hackers to reprogram the devices to run the batteries down or modify the patients’ heartbeat, putting millions of patients’ lives at risk.
Brazil Cardiac Pacemakers Market – Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic
Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak was first reported on December 31, 2019, in Wuhan, China. The World Health Organization declared COVID-19 as pandemic on March 11, 2020. According to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Weekly Epidemiological Update by the World Health Organization, over 3.3 million new cases were reported, across the globe.
The COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown in various countries across the globe has negatively impacted the financial status of businesses across all sectors. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the entire supply chain of the healthcare industry mainly due to strict lockdown in several regions. Likewise, COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a negative impact on Cardiac Pacemakers Market Cardiac Pacemakers Market
For instance, as per National Library of Medicine, reduction in pacemaker implantation of 73% was noticed within the COVID-19 pandemic period, and reduction of 78% in patients with the treatment of complete atrioventricular block and reduction in de-novo pacemaker insert was noticed.
Brazil Cardiac Pacemakers Market Restraint
Cardiac pacemaker infections are complex to manage, as there are intra-cardiac and extra-cardiac components, which may get infected and removal of the device is associated with a risk of death or significant complications. Long term hospital stays and multiple in-patient hospital admissions are common in pacemaker infections and efforts to treat infected systems often results in unnecessarily prolonged courses of treatment. Furthermore, cardiac pacemaker infections can be difficult to diagnose. The diagnosis is more difficult in infective endocarditis (IE) as echocardiography is less accurate, blood cultures are less sensitive, and the diagnosis is often not considered.

Cardiac pacemaker are medical device that supply impulses to the conduction system to originate contraction. The first cardiac pacemaker was introduced (Alee and Bernstein, 2001) in 1958, since then cardiac pacing has become a well-established therapeutic tool. Most cardiac pacemakers are inserted in patients above 60 years old and are also utilized in children, involving infants, if necessary. There are various types of conduction block which is most common indication for permanent cardiac pacing. Some leads to Bradycardia, which can result in ventricular dyssynchrony and ineffective ventricular contraction in normal heart rate.
The indications are sent to heart by electrical impulses which helps in producing a heartbeat. There are also some pacemakers which work as per needed. The patient is not allowed to drive a car for a week after insertion of the pacemaker.
The increasing need for adoption of cardiac pacemakers, growing trend of medical tourism in Brazil, and increasing adoption of inorganic growth strategies such as mergers, acquisitions, partnerships, and collaborations by key players operating in the market are the major factors that are expected to drive growth of the Brazil cardiac pacemakers market over the forecast period.
Cardiac pacemakers are increasingly used in the Chagas disease, which is highly endemic in 21 countries of Latin America, primarily transmitted by large, blood-sucking reduviid insects widely known as 'the kissing bugs' and by other means such as blood transfusion, organ transplantation, as well as congenital and oral transmissions. For instance, as per stated in National Library of Medicine 25%-30% of cardiac stimulation were performed in 2017 for Chagas disease in Brazil according to Brazil Pacemaker Registry (BPR)
