Cardiac Assist Devices Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global cardiac assist devices market size is estimated to be worth USD 2950.6 million by 2027 from USD 1966.8 million in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 8.4% during the forecast period.

Assist devices are mechanical pumps that connect with the heart to increase pumping efficiency and maintain optimal blood flow throughout the body. Cardiac-assist devices treat end-stage heart failure and are based on the individual's demands. These are meant to assist the heart in operating normally by taking over its function when it gets weak. It circulates blood throughout the body via the heart and has the necessary power to distribute sufficient blood throughout the body. The intra-aortic balloon pump is a long, narrow balloon that regulates blood flow through the aorta, the largest blood vessel in the body. According to blood flow, the gadget expands and contacts. As a result, it gets smaller while the heart beats, allowing blood to circulate freely throughout the body.

When the heart relaxes, it expands to keep more blood in the heart. These devices help maintain a constant blood flow to the heart and do not require mechanical bearings. It also serves as a transplant bridge, is available in miniature sizes, and provides life-saving support for heart patients recovering from or waiting for a heart transplant. As technology advances, the number of dependable ventricular assist devices (VAD) has grown, providing more significant patient treatment choices. Furthermore, the government has boosted financing for research and development projects in advanced medical treatment alternatives, emphasizing patient safety. The significant market advantage is technological advancements in innovative product development. New product innovations are likely to attract investments from private equity and venture capital firms due to ongoing investments in technical upgrades (VCs). Wireless power through transcutaneous energy transfer has also been developed by LVAD manufacturers (TET).


Y-O-Y growth in the incidences of cardiovascular devices is majorly promoting the global cardiac assist devices market growth.

Cardiac assist devices are used as mechanical pumps for patients with weak hearts and reduce the risk of death due to heart failure, a dominant factor influencing the growth of the cardiac assist devices market. Changes in the schemes by the government and the introduction of reimbursement policy in support of the common people to have heart surgeries free of cost drive the market's growth. The rise in the concern towards health is also one of the factors accelerating the market's demand. The decreasing number of heart donors drives the growth rate of the cardiac assist devices market to the extent. Cardiac assist devices promote assistance until the heart recovers after the transplantation, and also it is also a long-term device. The attribute, as mentioned above, is making the market share expand.

The growing aging population worldwide is creating chances for the global cardiac assist devices market. In addition, rising research and development institutes in the medical sector are also fueling the market's growth. Also, focusing on developing new devices and adding advanced features to existing ones is lucrative for setting up growth opportunities for the cardiac assist devices market. Furthermore, increasing demand for novel treatment procedures is surging the growth rate of the cardiac assist device market. In addition, the rise in the need to increase the survival rate is elevating the market's growth rate. 


However, increasing risk factors during blood clots and bleeding procedures is undoubtedly a restraining factor for the global cardiac assist devices market to grow. In addition, the cost of installing the equipment is a bit expensive, slowly hindering the market's growth rate. Furthermore, the shortage of skilled persons performing the procedure with the latest equipment degrades the market's growth. Moreover, the procedure is complicated and should be done under some experts' guidance with specially designed equipment. Therefore, it remained a challenging factor for the growth of the cardiac assist device market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global cardiac assist devices market:

Covid-19 was announced as a global pandemic and the emergence of the healthcare industry by the World Health Organization. COVID-19 first arrived as a regional pandemic and became a global pandemic. COVID-19 is an infectious disease that spreads quickly from person to person; to control the transmission, all the governments have imposed nationwide lockdown and a ban on transportation modes. The pandemic had affected all sectors of the economy except in the case of the healthcare sector. 

The sudden emergence of the outbreak had kept many lives at risk. During the COVID-19 period, the widespread had increased the positive cases rapidly. The cardiac assist devices market has a global supply chain; the supply chain was stopped due to the nationwide lockdown. In addition, the manufacturers of cardiac assist devices had stopped due to the workforce's unavailability and strict nationwide lockdown. Therefore, many concerning activities on cardiac devices were stopped during the first quarter of 2020.

However, the uplift of the lockdown has positively impacted the market growth, the ban on transportation was lifted, and the supply chain resumed. The COVID-19 infected young patients suffering from idiopathic cardiomyopathy treated for acute multi-organ failure require cardiac surgery. As per the reports, young pre-diseased patients show that the covid-19 directly affects pre-diseased hearts but can be treated with LVAD implantation (left ventricular assist device); the cardiac diseases led to the increase in the demand for cardiac assist devices. Hence, manufacturers in the industry are manufacturing the devices to meet the needs of the patients and hospitals. Therefore, despite the negative impact of COVID-19 in the earlier period of 2020, the market is anticipated to witness the largest market share in the coming years.
