Global Pacemaker Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The global pacemaker market size is expected to grow to USD 6.1 billion by 2028 from USD 4.98 billion in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 4.12% from 2023 to 2028.


The growing incidence of CVDs, rising costs of cardiac disease management, favorable government regulations, and the introduction of technologically upgraded pacemakers such as leadless and MRI-safe pacemakers are propelling the global pacemaker market growth.

One of the significant drivers of market expansion is the increased prevalence of CVDs. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), an estimated 523.2 million people suffered from cardiovascular diseases in 2019. According to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), deaths from CVDs have increased from 12.1 million in 1990 to 18.6 million in 2019. The growing demand to enhance patient outcomes for various pacemaker implantations through improved and minimally invasive techniques favors the pacemaker market growth. In addition, favorable reimbursement policies such as the Medicare system in the United States and the NHS in the United Kingdom and due to that, manufacturers of pacemakers such as Boston Scientific Corporation and Medtronic now deliver innovative products covered by payment plans and help patients, which is resulting in the growth of the pacemaker market.

Technology advancements in implantable pacemakers, such as the development of leadless pacemakers, MRI-compatible devices, and cardiac pacing systems with wireless communication and remote monitoring, are likely to boost the adoption rate of pacemakers further. Patients can use MRI-conditional models to supplement MR imaging treatments without harming or modifying the device settings. There have been several improvements in pacemaker technology in the past few decades. Wireless remote monitoring systems that track device data and patient health, longer battery life, and technology that helps reduce pacing requirements to save battery power are among the most impactful technologies in patient care, which is expected to promote the use of modern technology, which is projected to boost the growth rate during the forecast period.


Over the forecast period, the growth of the global pacemaker market is likely to be restrained by the public's low awareness of cardiovascular disorders in developing and underdeveloped countries, high costs associated with the treatment, and increasing product recalls owing to device malfunction. In addition, post-surgery complications associated with pacemaker surgery, such as infection near the heart where the device is put, further inhibit the market’s growth rate.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global pacemaker market:

The new coronavirus severely harmed patients with cardiovascular problems. The growing number of COVID-19 cases has had a massive economic impact on the healthcare and medical device industries. The COVID-19 pandemic is predicted to cause a slowdown in the market for pacemakers. As a result of the high transmission rate and lack of treatment, many countries have suffered and continue to suffer tremendous economic and healthcare burdens. Many governments have locked down, suspending trade with other countries, imposing travel restrictions, and so on, causing large firms' market capitalizations to fall worldwide. Before the early permanent pacemaker (PPM) installation, there is a greater risk of COVID-19 infection. As a result, the study concluded that using pacemakers raised the chance of long-term problems and the transmission of infection to healthcare workers. As a result, the global pacemaker market is predicted to grow at a healthy rate during the forecast period.

This research report on the global pacemaker market has been segmented and sub-segmented based on its application and region.

Pacemaker Market - By Product:

  • Implantable
  • External

Based on the product type, the implantable cardiac pacemakers market had the largest share of the global pacemaker market in 2022. It is expected to grow at a healthy rate during the forecast period. Single-chamber, dual-chamber, and biventricular pacemakers are the three main implantable pacemakers. Reduced post-surgical problems and several leads to ensure proper heart physiology have contributed to the segment's rise. Due to numerous leads, biventricular pacemakers are predicted to gain popularity.

Pacemaker Market - By Application:

  • Unipolar
  • Bipolar

Pacemaker Market - By Region

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America
  • Middle East and Africa

The North American pacemaker market occupied the leading share of the global market in 2022 and is anticipated to play a vital role in the global market during the forecast period. The presence of key market participants, growing incidence of cardiovascular diseases among the aging population, rapid adoption of technological advancements such as MRI-compatible and Bluetooth-enabled pacemakers, and improved regulatory clearances are majorly fuelling the pacemaker market in the North American region. In addition, cardiovascular diseases such as congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, and cardiac arrests are rising in the region, fuelling market growth. In terms of share, North America emerged as the most important regional market. Furthermore, the rising population suffering from obesity and favorable reimbursement policies propel regional market growth. The U.S. pacemaker market is expected to hold the leading portion of the North American market in the coming years. In the U.S., the lifetime risk of atrial fibrillation is estimated to be one in every three people. Alcohol, tobacco, a sedentary lifestyle, and over-the-counter drugs can also exacerbate arrhythmias. The pacemaker market in the United States is further driven by innovative devices such as leadless and MRI-safe pacemakers. Furthermore, increased per capita disposable income and rising healthcare spending are expected to drive market expansion in the United States during the forecast period.

Over the forecast period, the Asia Pacific pacemaker market is expected to grow healthy. The growing penetration of the key market participants and the availability of untapped market potential primarily drives the pacemaker market in the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, growing investments to upgrade APAC’s healthcare industry in gaining pace, particularly in Japan, India, and China. Furthermore, countries are increasingly focusing on creating effective cardiac diagnosis and treatment facilities. As a result of these factors, the region's market is predicted to see a healthy CAGR in the upcoming years. Furthermore, due to the increasing aging population and the growing number of people suffering from cardiovascular disorders such as atrial fibrillation, and arrhythmias, the need for pacemakers is anticipated to increase considerably in the APAC region in the coming years.

The Chinese pacemaker market is anticipated to showcase a healthy CAGR during the forecast period. Rapid socioeconomic development has impacted cardiovascular health among the Chinese population, with risk factors such as obesity, hypertension, smoking, and diabetes rising. As a result of the shift in lifestyle, urbanization, and an aging population, the risk of cardiovascular disease has increased dramatically in China. The rising prevalence of cardiovascular diseases has become a severe public health concern, with higher fatality rates boosting the adoption rate of pacemakers.

The European pacemaker market held a considerable share of the global market in 2022 and is expected to register promising growth during the forecast period.

The pacemaker market in Latin America is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR during the forecast period owing to the growing usage of the increasing aging population suffering from CVDs.

The MEA pacemaker market is expected to project a moderate CAGR in the global market over the forecast period.
