Such advancements contribute significantly to the market by improving patient outcomes, minimizing risks, and underscoring the industry's dedication to advancing technologies in cardiac care.

Furthermore, the increasing adoption of ICDs within healthcare facilities is expected to be a key driver for market expansion. For instance, in December 2021, Cleveland Clinic successfully performed leadless pacemaker defibrillator system implants in the first two patients globally as part of an international clinical trial. This novel device, designed to address low and elevated heart rates, integrates the technology of a leadless pacemaker with subcutaneous ICDs. Consequently, the growing acceptance of implantable defibrillators and the rising prevalence of cardiac rhythm disorders in the region are projected to fuel market growth.

Product Type Insights

Based on product type, the ICD market is classified into transvenous implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (T-ICDs) and subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator segments (S-ICDs). The T-ICDs segment dominated the market in 2023 with a revenue share of 89.83%. The dominant share can be attributed to T-ICDs offering valuable advantages in managing life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias and reducing procedural complications and medical costs associated with invasive surgeries. They address the needs of patients with ventricular fibrillation (VF) and ventricular tachycardia (VT) through features like cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), permanent pacing, and anti-tachycardia pacing.

The S-ICDs segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. This can be attributed to their effectiveness in treating ventricular heart disease and reducing the risk of SCA. S-ICDs offer advantages over traditional T-ICDs by minimizing complications and perioperative issues. They are particularly beneficial for patients with complex anatomies or those who cannot undergo endovascular lead implantation. Clinical trials have demonstrated lower rates of major lead-related complications with S-ICDs, positioning them as an attractive alternative for patients, including young individuals with increased mortality rates post-COVID-19.

Type Insights

Based on type, the ICD market is classified into single-chamber ICDs, dual-chamber ICDs, and biventricular devices segments. The biventricular devices segment dominated the market in 2023 with a revenue share of 44.33%.
