Defibrillator Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global defibrillator market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.3% from 2022 to 2027. This market was valued at USD 12.36 billion in 2022 and worth USD 17.58 billion by 2027.

A defibrillator sends an electric shock to the heart to restore a normal heartbeat. St. Jude Medical remembered thousands of implantable defibrillators after the patient died when the device's battery failed. People affected by the recall should monitor the defibrillator carefully. Defibrillation is an effective treatment option that is received globally to treat cardiac arrest occurring due to ventricular fibrillation.


Y-O-Y Growth in the prevalence of targeted diseases, a growing number of awareness programs to spread awareness on defibrillators in the developing countries are primarily driving growth to the global defibrillators market.

Growing adoption of technological advancements, y-o-y growth in the incidence CVDs, and a rising aging population with an elevated risk of targeted diseases are some other significant factors accelerating the demand for defibrillators market. In recent times, in the wake of COVID-19, the International Liaison Committee on cardiopulmonary Resuscitation amended the resuscitation guidelines, which ensured improving defibrillation delivery by improving training to the healthcare worker, which reduced the confusion in the delay of COVID-19 resuscitation efforts. S-ICDs, MRI-compatible, and CRT-Ds are anticipated to provide growth opportunities for the development and emerging markets.

Furthermore, the rise in the concern towards quality treatment procedures and to improve the wellbeing of patients and change in food habits, and the adoption of sedentary lifestyles are indirectly contributing to the global defibrillators market. Public and private organizations are focusing on developing new technologies in the medical sector, and there is an increase in the number of training institutes, which are positive vibes to the market growth. Increasing awareness among people towards the availability of various treatment procedures, growing support from the government to improve the quality of diagnostic and treatment procedures, and increasing urbanization and growth in disposable income are expected to show favoritism towards the global defibrillators market growth.


The shortage of skilled persons in operating the systems more effectively and analyzing them is slightly hampering the growth rate of the market. Lack of standardization, failure of operations in real-time, and less knowledge in resolving the issue by technicians are significant factors that negatively impact market growth. Moreover, these systems require enormous amounts for implementation and maintenance, which is a major challenge.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global defibrillator market:

Since late December 2019, COVID 19, caused by the novel coronavirus Sars-CoV-2 has affected all the sectors in an unprecedented way. The effects of the pandemic and winding down of the concerned defibrillator market activities have affected both the operations and the financial results of many industry participants. Leading to the postponement of the activities, there has been a reduction in the research activities as the world focused on fighting against the virus.

Despite the negative impact created by the COVID-19 on the Defibrillators market at the initial period of 2020, the market is anticipated to record the largest market share during the forecast period. After the Unlock of lockdown nationwide, the supply chain has been increased. In the wake of COVID-19, the International Liaison Committee on cardiopulmonary Resuscitation has amended the resuscitation guidelines during the pandemic. The manufacturers in the industry are focussing on producing more defibrillators. In recent times, defibrillators were found to be extremely useful in reviving sudden cardiac arrest in COVID-19. The implantable cardioverters defibrillators held the largest market share in the global market. However, the market is expected to have had a better share in the market growth.
