Report Description

The global defibrillators market is witnessing an uptick on account of supportive legislation policies by the government of developed countries as the government in countries such as the U. S, and U. K. has mandated the installation of defibrillators at public places such as schools, government facilities, and institutes. Approximately 80% of put of hospital cardiac arrests occur at home and around 20% will occur in public places in the United Kingdom.

Moreover, a rise in the incidences of sudden cardiac arrest owing to the disease such as Ischemic heart disease, Dilated cardiomyopathy, Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, Arrhythmia, Congenital heart disease, and Myocarditis is generating the demand for defibrillators. Approximately 30,000 Hospital Cardiac Arrests occur every year in the UK. Also, with growing end-user’ awareness about the treatment and use of defibrillators globally, the demand has witnessed a rise. In a study, it was found that Without immediate treatment, 90-95% of Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims will die

Moreover, a sedentary lifestyle and rising aging population who are more prone to the disease is one of the leading causes of the proliferating incidences of sudden cardiac arrest. As per the American Heart Association, every 25 seconds an American will have a coronary event. Also, 56% of the adults in the United States have been told by the healthcare professional to improve their health and 99% of the Americans need to improve heart health.

The government across countries are investing more in healthcare, which is resulting in improved healthcare infrastructure, deployment of necessary medical equipment at public places et. As per OCED, the government in the United States spend USD 8,032.6 USD per capita in 2015 that increased to USD 9,386.5 USD per capita in 2019 same way in the U.K the government spent 3,043.6 USD per capita in 2015 that increased to USD 3,619.5 USD per capita in 2019.

Also, the companies across countries are taking several initiatives to quickly deliver the defibrillator. A transport agency in Sweden is running a program under the test phase, which would deliver AEDs using a drone.
