The global defibrillator market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.3% from 2023 to 2028. This market was valued at USD 13.26 billion in 2023 and worth USD 18.86 billion by 2028.

Defibrillator Market Share Insights:

  • Based on the product, the implantable defibrillator segment held the largest share in 2022 and is expected to dominate during the forecast period.
  • Based on the end-user, the hospital segment is forecasted to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.

Defibrillators are life-saving medical devices and are mostly used in emergencies such as sudden cardiac arrest. In such situations, the heart stops pumping blood to the body, and immediate action is required to save the person from dying. Defibrillation is believed as one of the effective treatment options for sudden cardiac arrest as these devices can help resume the functionality of the affected person by giving an electronic shock. Sudden cardiac arrest situations are scary and can also result in death if not taken appropriate action in quick time.


The growing patient population suffering from cardiovascular diseases is one of the key factors driving the defibrillators market growth.

 WHO says CVDs are one of the major causes of death worldwide, and an estimated 17.9 million people every year dies from CVDs. As per the data provided by the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC), an estimated 697,000 people died from heart disease in the U.S. in 2020. As per the same source, one person gets a heart attack every 40 seconds in the United States, and approximately 805,000 people have heart attacks every year in the U.S. The growing number of people suffering from CVDs and the increasing incidence of heart attacks are expected to boost the demand for defibrillator devices and promote the market’s growth rate.

The rising awareness among healthcare providers regarding sudden cardiac arrests is further fuelling the growth rate of the defibrillators market. The incidents of sudden cardiac arrests are growing significantly worldwide and are a major cause of death worldwide. For instance, American Heart Association says an estimated 326,200 adults die from sudden cardiac arrests in the U.S. every year.

In addition, the growing number of awareness programs to spread awareness on defibrillators in developing countries are supporting the growth rate of the defibrillators market. Factors such as the growing adoption of technological advancements and a rising aging population with an elevated risk of cardiovascular diseases are further anticipated to fuel the growth of the 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 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 to improve the well-being 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 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 affordability of defibrillators is not possible for some countries to purchase sufficient or large quantities due to the high costs, which is one of the key factors hampering the market’s growth rate. Poor awareness among people regarding the importance of defibrillators in rural or remote areas is limiting the adoption of these devices and hindering the market growth. Unfavorable reimbursement policies for defibrillators in some countries are negatively impacting the growth rate of the global market. Furthermore, costs associated with repairs and maintenance, competition from alternative therapies, and stringent regulations associated with the commercialization of defibrillators are expected to impede market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global defibrillators market:

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown a mixed impact on the growth of the defibrillators market. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the supply chain has been completely disrupted, reducing demand for defibrillators. In addition, elective and non-essential surgical procedures were kept on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic, reducing the usage and demand levels for defibrillators. Furthermore, many pharmaceutical companies and governments have shifted their resources to address the growing disease burden of COVID-19 and restricted financial resources for R&D on defibrillators. On the other side, the sales of defibrillators have grown via online channels. The usage of telemedicine, home healthcare, and remote patient monitoring has grown substantially during the COVID-19 pandemic, which also has accelerated the demand levels for defibrillators. Such factors resulted positively in the growth of the defibrillators market. Likewise, the global defibrillators market has experienced positive and negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, considering the decreasing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the global defibrillators market is estimated to showcase a healthy CAGR during the forecast period.
