The Global Defibrillator Market size was valued at USD 11.30 billion in 2021 and is predicted to reach USD 21.09 billion by 2030, increasing at a CAGR of 7.18% from 2022 to 2030. A defibrillator is a medical device that delivers a therapeutic shock to a patient's heart in life-threatening situations, such as ventricular fibrillation, cardiac arrhythmia, and pulseless ventricular tachycardia. An electrical discharge to the heart depolarizes the muscles and restores the heart's normal electrical impulse as part of the defibrillation treatment. Life-saving medical devices and external defibrillators give defibrillating shocks using paddles or electrode pads to diagnose and repair life-threatening irregular heart rhythms in the case of unexpected cardiac arrest.
Increasing public and private attention to public access defibrillators (PADs) has spurred industry expansion. Additionally, the expanding geriatric population, which has an increased risk of cardiac arrest, as well as an increase in the incidence of heart disease, are all factors that contribute to the market's growth. It is possible to pace the heart with defibrillators, as well as defibrillate the patient with a device like this. It is possible to purchase a manual external defibrillator, an AED, or a portable cardioverter defibrillator as an AED (WCDs). For the treatment of SCA, AEDs are employed due to their great efficiency and ease of use, resulting in an enormous market share for defibrillators worldwide. Defibrillators market growth is being stifled by the rise in pricing pressure on companies.

Automated external defibrillator market growth is estimated to be driven by the increased prevalence of cardiac disorders across different age groups due to demanding job circumstances, sedentary lifestyles, growing use of tobacco and alcohol, and substance abuse.
"Global epidemiology of atrial fibrillation: an increasing epidemic and public health challenge" published in the International Journal of Stroke in January 2020 stated that the worldwide prevalence of atrial fibrillation was 37,574 million cases (0.51 percent of the worldwide population), which increased by 33 percent over the last 20 years. Also included in this analysis was a prediction that by the year 2050, the total number of people suffering from atrial fibrillation could rise by more than 60%. The growing burden of arrhythmia is likely to boost the expansion of the studied market over the forecast period.
Another driving force in the industry is the rise in the number of older persons. It is estimated that by 2050, the number of people aged 65 and over worldwide will rise from 727 million to more than 1.5 billion, according to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs. The proportion of the population over the age of 65 is predicted to rise from 9.3 percent in 2020 to 16.0 percent by the year 2050. Chronic disorders, such as cardiovascular disease (CVD), become more common with age.
The increased emphasis on AEDs in public areas is also contributing significantly to the market's growth. As people become more aware of the device's life-saving capabilities, more public areas, including as train stations, schools and colleges, retail centers, airports, malls and leisure centers, are installing it. Known as public access defibrillators (PADs), these devices can be used by anybody in the event of a medical crisis. Because of the increasing number of SCA incidents, a lot of countries are taking steps to install PADs in public places.
Defibrillators in public settings might fail owing to problems with the battery, software, or hardware. When defibrillation is not performed, it can lead to therapeutic setbacks as well as death. A number of defibrillators have been recalled in the last few years because of technical faults in the device's performance, including shock delivery, electrical issues, and hardware configurations. Poor product performance and even patient death can be the outcome of these defects.
Another key issue in the defibrillator market is cybersecurity. Modern implantable defibrillators are highly advanced and capable of transferring data across long distances. The FDA has expressed worry about the possibility of these devices being hacked. Since its wireless telemetry equipment had no encryption or authentication safety, Medtronic was the latest corporation to face an FDA cybersecurity problem in 2019.
The Defibrillators Market is expected to grow faster than expected due to the increasing progress being made in the development of next-generation defibrillators. These Market Defibrillators are designed to help the industry better detect and address device-related problems. SCA is the world's most common cause of death, and it is a life-threatening disorder. If you intervene early and employ defibrillation, when necessary, you can successfully manage this illness. Due to rising use by heart failure patients around the world, the automated external Defibrillators Market (AEDs) presently lead the global external Defibrillators Market, which is predicted to develop at the quickest rate in the future. As the number of AEDs available to the general population has expanded, so has the demand for them. Following the market for wearable external Defibrillators, the second-largest market for external Defibrillators is for manual devices. Implantable and automated external defibrillators market difficulties, on the other hand, are likely to slow market expansion in the next years. Moreover, the development of S-ICDs and MRI-compatible ICDs & CRT-Ds are also likely to generate tremendous opportunities for the growth of the market within the forecast year.
The Global Defibrillator Market share is divided into different segments according to the Product, End Use, and Region (Geography).
