Global Active Implantable Medical Devices Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The global active implantable medical devices market size is expected to be growing at a 7.76% CAGR from 2023 to 2028. The market is estimated to be worth USD 38.97 Billion by 2028 from USD 26.82 billion in 2023.

Active implantable medical devices are widely utilized in the medical field for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, and they are implanted totally or partially in the human body. The device will be implanted in the patient's body and remain there forever. Heart rhythms can be controlled, hypertension can be monitored, functional electrical stimulation of nerves can be provided, glaucoma sensors can be used, and bladder and cranial pressure may be monitored. Many wireless medical devices communicate with receivers in the area that are connected to landlines, cellular networks, or high-speed internet access. Cardiovascular devices, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, spasticity, and individuals with hearing or vision impairment are among the diseases for which active implanted medical devices are used.


The rising incidence of cardiovascular diseases, increasing aging population, and rising adoption of technological developments primarily drive the global active implantable medical devices market growth.

The growing elderly population is one of the major factors of the globally active implantable medical devices market growth. According to World Health Organization (WHO), the number of people over 65 is supposed to increase from 524 million in 2010 to about 1.5 billion in 2050. By 2050, the global age group over 80 will have 379 million, expected to be 5.5 times the 65 million in 2000. Age is associated with a gradual decline in functional reserve in multiple organ systems, including the heart, brain, and ears. Therefore, it is not surprising that elderly patients use imbalanced medical resources. About 92% of the elderly have at least one chronic illness, and 77% of the elderly have at least two chronic diseases.

Additionally, the emergence of innovative implantable products with enhanced performance and effortless operative procedures is expected to support the market's growth rate during the forecast period. Favorable government policies will likely offer several opportunities to the new and well-established manufacturers in the market. The rising prevalence of cardiovascular diseases and increasing demand for active implantable devices, especially in developing countries, is another promising factor in helping the market reach new heights in growth. Furthermore, an increasing number of medical research activities to create advanced and ergonomically enhanced technologies due to an expanding number of various diseases offer lucrative growth opportunities and push the limits of the global active implantable medical devices market worldwide.


Issues related to using such devices, such as those related to device failure and network security, may hinder market growth soon. In addition, the high cost and adverse compensation policies of implantable medical devices are vital challenges and limit the adoption of active implantable medical device solutions in the global market.

COVID-19 Impact on Active Implantable Medical Devices Market:

COVID-19 has affected the Global Economy adversely. The World Health Organization COVID-19 as a public health emergency. Due to its fast spread through human interactions, all countries globally have declared a strict lockdown. The lockdown is the main culprit for the demolition of the global economy. The active implantable medical devices market has been affected negatively during the pandemic. Due to the lockdown, all transportation services were stopped, and the supply chain was disturbed. Moreover, all the hospitals have prioritized COVID-19 patients, where all the other treatment procedures were either canceled or postponed. The non-essential patients have been neglected and postponed their appointments, due to which the market was slowed down during the pandemic. Nevertheless, post-COVID-19, patients are getting treated accordingly, and the active implantable medical devices market is growing. The market players are the primary factor to keep the market into profits post covid.
