Industry Insights

The global single lead ECG equipment market size was valued at USD 337.08 million in 2017. It is anticipated to exhibit a CAGR of 4.72% during the forecast period. Application of single lead technology for monitoring heart rate during exercise, sports activities, and workout is projected to boost the adoption of these devices.

With growing prominence of homecare, these devices are poised to gain strong momentum in the foreseeable future owing to shift in trend towards personalized health monitoring solutions. Moreover, shifting preferences for cardiac assessment towards self-triaging before opting complicated systems for analysis are leading to emergence of smart phone and mobile-based single lead ECG monitors, thereby driving the market.

In addition, several entities are integrating smart phone interoperability with ECG monitoring devices in order to provide immediate and easy access of ECG waveforms to users. Such practices are enabling improvement of patient outcome in cardiovascular disease treatment. These technological advancements are likely to stimulate the growth of the market over the forecast period.

Besides this, favorable government initiatives for remote monitoring equipment are expected to promote technological progress in single lead ECG/EKG equipment. However, unstable reimbursement policies for cardiology services, especially in developing regions, are expected to impede the growth of the market over the coming years.

Market participants are engaged in enhancement of product features in order to gain customer attention and consequent adoption. Issues faced include need of information management systems such that results can be directly shared with physicians for interpretation and consultation. However, initiatives based on customer centricity are anticipated to reduce the impact of such challenges.

Indication Insights

The demand for single lead ECG/EKG devices is boosted by rising incidence of cardiovascular diseases. According to the American Heart Association, more than 4 million patients are suffering from arrhythmias and causes approximately half a million deaths each year in the U.S.

Continuous R&D has led to evolution of portable single lead ECG devices that work well for diagnosis of arrhythmias, syncope, or to monitor risks that may lead to cardiovascular disorders. For instance, HeartScan ECG Monitor, manufactured by Omron Corporation can be used by patients suffering with diabetes, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and obesity to assess CVD risks.

Advent of artificial intelligence technology and cloud-based storage systems has enabled ease of usage of these devices significantly. With the usage of these devices, fewer clinic visits and reduction in cost of monitoring, coupled with speedy and accurate diagnosis, can be achieved. In addition to this, intermittent giddiness or presyncope in patients can be monitored and thus, providing a definitive treatment with pacemaker becomes possible before syncope occurrence.

End-use Insights

With increase in use of smartphones and tablets for health-related applications, portable single lead ECG equipment for home/ambulatory services is projected to register lucrative revenue growth over the forecast period. Various social and health awareness public platforms are utilized for promotion of final products in order to fuel product uptake.

Furthermore, cost-effectiveness associated with application of this technology is poised to bolster its usage and penetration in home health care settings. These devices majorly fulfil aspects related to timing and rhythm information. However, certain limitations such as inability to serve aspects of heart functioning reduces prescription rate from physician’s end.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the global single lead ECG equipment market in 2017, owing to ongoing developments in home and ambulatory health care in the region. Moreover, this region is experiencing high mortality rate due to increased incidence of cardiovascular diseases, which in turn, stirs up the demand for such home-use technology.

On the other hand, Asia Pacific is likely to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. Emerging economies, growing popularity of wearable devices, constantly developing infrastructure, and presence of target population are among the primary growth stimulants for the regional market.

Market in developing economies such as India are growing by virtue of collaborations with government in order to build healthcare infrastructure and provide advanced primary healthcare services. Rising inclination of customers towards mobile phone associate devices is also contributing to the growth of the market during the forecast period.
