A cardiac pacing lead is a small catheter with two electrodes. It is placed in the right ventricle of the heart through the vein in the groin or neck. Leads emit electrical stimulus to heart for producing depolarization of cardiac cells. There are two components in leads such as conductive leads and electrode wire. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2016, 17.5 Mn people died globally due to cardiovascular diseases. Cardiac arrests, ventricle function failure, and slow depolarization rate of ventricle are the main causes of cardiovascular diseases.
Global Cardiac Pacing Leads Market – Drivers and Restraints
The increasing rate of cardiovascular diseases is the primary factor for driving the global cardiac pacing lead market. According to American Heart Association, in 2016, nearly half i.e. 48%, 121.5 million of the adults in the U.S. have cardiovascular diseases. Changing lifestyle of people, increased consumption of fats and sugar, unhealthy work practices and on desk work culture are the factors driving the market globally.
Furthermore, rising number of geriatric population and their chances of cardiac related diseases is the factor driving the market globally. Approvals for the devices associated with the programming of the pacing systems from the regulatory bodies help to drive the market growth. For instance, on May 2, 2019, Medtronic plc received the U.S. FDA approval for careLink SmartSynk device manager, which is used for programming pacing system for cardiac.
The company are developing and launching novel devices to meet the demands of physicians and patients. Moreover, on April 29, 2019, Biotronik launched its Plexa ProMRIs DX lead with DF4/IS-1 connector in Europe. Furthermore, the U.S. Biotronik offers DF4 based DX systems for tachycardia therapy with new lead and recently launched leads Acticor ID and CRT- D devices.
The lack of skilled professionals and less awareness about cardiac disease in public are the factors restraining the market globally.
