External Defibrillator Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 8% over the forecast period (2021-2027). The external defibrillator market is witnessing an uptick on account of the surging prevalence of the cardiovascular disease, the aging population, and other cardio-related problems that increases the possibility of cardiac arrest. As per the WHO, CVDs are the number 1 cause of death globally and approximately 31% of total deaths happened due to CVDs.

Moreover, promulgating Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) coupled with rising end-user awareness is generating the demand for the defibrillator.  In a study, it was found that the unavailability of defibrillators is the leading cause of SCA. As per the sudden cardiac arrest foundation, there are more than 356,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCA) annually in the U.S., nearly 90% of them fatal. Therefore, the government in developed countries such as the United States, U.K. has mandated to store and maintain Automated External Defibrillators in certain public places such as sports arenas, schools, government facilities, and institutes.

In the UK there are as many as 100,000 hospital admissions each year due to heart attacks: that’s one every five minutes. Around 1.4 million people alive in the UK today have survived a heart attack. More than 900,000 people in the UK are living with heart failure.
