Cardiac pacing leads are thin wire-like medical devices that deliver electrical pulses from pacemakers to the heart muscles. They are implanted into the heart chambers through veins to maintain normal rhythm and contractility. Pacing leads act as a bridge between pacemakers and the heart by sensing electrical signals from heart and delivering therapeutic impulses from pacemakers. There are different types of pacing leads used for specific cardiac applications such as unipolar leads, bipolar leads, and coronary sinus leads. Pacing leads provide essential support in managing cardiac arrhythmias and heart block conditions. Growing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases worldwide is driving the demand for cardiac pacing devices including leads.
The global Cardiac Pacing Leads Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 322.5 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.2% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends:
The global cardiac pacing leads market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to growing geriatric population prone to arrhythmias, rising prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, and technological advancement in lead designs. As per WHO, cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death globally, taking an estimated 17.9 million lives each year. Also, number of people aged 65 years and older is projected to grow from 524 million in 2010 to nearly 1.5 billion in 2050. Growing pool of elderly population increases the risks of arrhythmias and conduction defects requiring implantation of cardiac pacing systems. Further, ongoing research and development activities have led to development of innovative lead features such as steroid-eluting leads and laser-assisted leads reducing complications and extending lead longevity. Rising healthcare expenditure in emerging nations also contributes to market growth. However, risk of device failure and recall may hinder the market growth over the forecast period.
Threat of new entrants: The threat of new entrants in the cardiac pacing leads market is moderate. The market requires huge investments in R&D to develop new technology and cardiac pacing products. In addition, the market is dominated by well-established players who have strong brand recognition.
Bargaining power of buyers: The bargaining power of buyers is low to moderate. Cardiac pacing leads are specialized medical devices requiring prescription and products are not easily substitutable. However, the presence of many manufacturers provides options to buyers.
Bargaining power of suppliers: The bargaining power of suppliers is low due to the presence of many component manufacturers. Key components such as lead conductors are available from different suppliers minimizing dependence on a single vendor.
Threat of new substitutes: The threat of new substitutes is low. While various treatment options are available for cardiac conditions, pacing leads provide a reliable solution for patients with conduction disorders.
Competitive rivalry: The competition in the cardiac pacing leads market is high owing to the presence of global and local players. Manufacturers compete based on product innovation, quality, and pricing.
The Global Cardiac Pacing Leads Market Size is expected to reach US$ 322.5 million by 2023, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.2% over the forecast period. Factors such as the rising geriatric population, growing burden of cardiovascular diseases, and technological advancements are expected to drive the market.
Regionally, North America dominated the global market and accounted for over 35% of the total share in 2023 due to the growing demand for effective treatment options. However, Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness the fastest growth owing to improving healthcare infrastructure and increasing medical expenditures.
Key players operating in the cardiac pacing leads market are Medtronic Plc, Oscor Inc., B Braun Melsungen AG, Biotronik, Sorin Group, Vitatron, Biosensors, Estech, Greatbatch Medical, Edwards Lifesciences, BioTrace Medical, and Teleflex Incorporated. The market is competitive with players competing based on product innovation, quality, and pricing. Medtronic captured over 25% of the global market share in 2023 due to its comprehensive product portfolio.
