Opportunity: Growing number of mergers & acquisitions among market players

Many key market players in the defibrillator market are increasingly acquiring other players to expand their product offerings globally. These acquisitions help manufacturers of implantable and external defibrillators improve their technical efficiencies, strengthen their financial base, penetrate emerging markets, and offer patients a wide range of products. Acquisitions enable defibrillator manufacturers to maintain their profit margins and enhance their geographic presence despite the increasing cost pressures. Some of the key mergers & acquisitions in the defibrillator market are listed below. In July 2020, ZOLL Medical (an Asahi Kasei subsidiary) acquired Cardiac Science to strengthen its Critical Care segment. This acquisition diversified the company’s defibrillator and cardiac care segment, helping the parent company maintain a competitive edge in the market.

Challenge: Lack of awareness about sudden cardiac arrests in developing countries

Defibrillators are typically used to restore normal heartbeat in critical cardiac patients (such as arrhythmia, cardiac arrest, etc.). However, developing countries such as India, Indonesia, and Brazil are reported with limited public awareness levels about the clinical relevance of timely interventions through defibrillators as well as a limited operational understanding of defibrillators among the general public.

Therefore, clinical and product awareness level in developing countries is a major challenge to sustained and positive demand growth of defibrillator products during the coming decade. This is further aggravated by frequent product recalls resulting in lower availability of innovative external defibrillators in the market.

The defibrillator market is consolidated and dominated by various global players as of 2022. Major players operating in this market are Medtronic (Ireland), Stryker (US), Koninklijke Philips (Netherlands), Asahi Kasei Corporation (Japan), Boston Scientific Corporation (US), and Abbott (US). These include product launches, contracts, partnerships, mergers and acquisitions, and new product development activities to expand their presence in defibrillators.

Medtronic (Ireland): Due to its extensive product portfolio, Medtronic is the leading player in the global implantable defibrillators market. The company primarily focuses on developing innovative products to treat and manage heart failure and heart rhythm disorders. The company focuses on inorganic business growth strategies such as product development & commercialization, acquisitions, and market expansions to strengthen its current position and gain a larger share of the neurovascular devices market. The company received the CE Mark for its implantable defibrillator system, Aurora EV-ICD MRI SureScan, and Epsila EV MRI SureScan for managing irregular heart rhythms in 2023. Moreover, the company is also focusing on expanding its R&D capabilities to fuel product development and commercialization across mature and emerging markets.
