Despite developments in prevention & treatment, sudden cardiac death remains a leading cause of mortality and is accountable for nearly half of all deaths from cardiovascular ailments. The increasing prevalence of cardiac disorders and associated risk factors are expected to increase the demand for cardiac resynchronization therapy devices. Heart failure is among the significant reasons for death around the globe. 

According to CDC, as of September 2020, around 6.2 million adults in the U.S. suffer from cardiac conditions. Furthermore, as per the American College of Cardiology Foundation, prevalent cases of cardiovascular diseases nearly doubled from 1990 to 2019. Hence, the increasing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases is anticipated to boost the demand for various treatment options, including cardiac resynchronization therapy devices.

  • Rising Sedentary Lifestyle 

Physical inactivity is a primary public concern as it is linked to the second-largest number of deaths, after tobacco consumption, in the U.S. Physical inactivity can lead to morbid obesity and many other chronic diseases, such as cardiac disorders and diabetes. Extended periods of inactivity in otherwise physically active individuals have been commonly observed to increase symptoms of CVD in diabetic and atherosclerotic patients. Major consequences of this lifestyle are cardiac disorders, such as stroke, myocardial infarction, and angina.

According to CDC, as of 2019, about 1 in 4 U.S. individuals sit for over 8 hours a day, 44% do no moderate to vigorous physical activity in a week, and only 4% spend less than 4 hours a day sitting and being active as well. It is anticipated to increase the demand for CRT devices. A sedentary lifestyle can lead to obesity and hypertension, the critical risk factors for CVDs. Obesity continues to be one of the essential public health issues. According to a study published online in Pediatrics, obesity rates among children jumped significantly during the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic. Across the board, there has been a 2% increase in obesity in a year.
