Cardiac Arrest Treatment Market is expected to grow at a high CAGR 4.9%  during the forecasting period (2022-2029).

Cardiac arrest is a sudden and abrupt loss of heart function, consciousness, and apnea. It originates from an electrical disturbance caused in the heart due to lag in electrical signal impulses. The primary cause of a cardiac arrest is abnormal heart rhythm like ventricular tachycardia. Other causes of cardiac arrest include thickened heart muscles (cardiomyopathy), blood vessel abnormalities, electrical abnormalities, recreational drug use, and the scarring of the heart tissue.

Cardiac Arrest Treatment Market Dynamics

The major driving forces for the cardiac arrest treatment market are the rise in cardiovascular diseases, rising sedentary lifestyle, increase in the geriatric population, and research activities.

The increasing incidences of cardiovascular diseases are expected to boost the market over the period of forecast. For instance, according to WHO, around 17.9 million people die of cardiovascular diseases, an estimated 31% of all the deaths worldwide every year. Four out of five CVD deaths are due to heart attacks and strokes. According to the World Journal of Cardiovascular Diseases, more than 7 million deaths are due to sudden cardiac arrest across the globe each year. Thus, the growing number of heart failures, heart attacks, strokes, and other heart-related illnesses drive the cardiac arrest treatment market growth.

The rising sedentary lifestyle is expected to boost the market over the forecast period. As per World Health Organization, sedentary lifestyles kill around 5.3 million people every year globally, at least 300,000 premature deaths and US$90 billion in direct healthcare costs are caused by obesity and sedentary lifestyle per year in the US alone. According to World Health Organization, approximately 2 million deaths per year are attributed to physical inactivity, prompting World Health Organization to warn that a sedentary lifestyle could be among the ten major causes of death and disability in the world. According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, only one in three children are physically active every day. Thus, the rising sedentary lifestyle is driving the market.

The presence of research and development activities for the treatment of cardiac arrest is expected to boost the market. For instance, in March 2017, researchers from the University of Copenhagen found that Ibuprofen should not be sold over the counter, as it increases the risk of cardiac arrest by 31%. According to a report published in September 2019 in Nature, scientists at the University of Pennsylvania's Abramson Cancer Center used CAR-T cells to treat cardiac fibrosis, a part of heart disease and cardiac arrest. They also explained how T cell therapy was implemented to target and destroy the scar tissue, leading to heart failure. In June 2019, researchers from the British Heart Foundation developed a blood test that flags up heart failure early on and a “pumping” patch that could help repair heart damage after cardiac arrest. Clinical trials testing the patches on patients will begin within the next two years. Thus, the increasing number of research activities are driving the market.

However, the lack of availability of healthcare professionals in developing countries and the stringent regulations for the approval of cardiac devices are restraining the market.

Cardiac Arrest Treatment Market Segmentation

The drug segment can be segmented into vasopressors, anti-arrhythmic drugs, anticholinergic drugs, corticosteroids, fibrinolytic drugs, beta-blockers, etc.

The beta-blocker segment is expected to boost the market over the period of forecast. This is owing to the increased use of beta-blockers for cardiac arrest treatment. Beta-blockers became a prescription drug for recovering heart attack patients. However, many patients who are at higher risk for developing cardiovascular disease cannot tolerate these blood pressure-reducing medications, including those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and asthma, the elderly, and diabetics. On March 26, 2018, researchers at the New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYITCOM) introduced a new treatment for beta-blocker intolerance called thyroid hormone therapy. They have suggested that the thyroid hormone triiodothyronine (T3), which controls many aspects of cardiovascular function and is also a  regulator of beta-receptor function, may offer an alternative therapy.

The medical devices segment can be divided into defibrillators, cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), etc. Among these, the defibrillators segment is expected to boost the market over the period of forecast. This is owing to the increased number of product launches and research activities. A defibrillator is the only tool that can restore a normal heart rhythm during a heart attack. In July 2019, Zoll offered the LifeVest wearable defibrillator (WCD) as a temporary solution. It allows a physician more time to assess a patient’s long-term arrhythmic risk and make appropriate plans. On June 19, 2019, Philips announced the US FDA had approved the company's premarket approval (PMA) application for its HeartStart OnSite defibrillator (model M5066A) and HeartStart Home Defibrillator (model M5068A). The approval includes the relevant supporting accessories, such as batteries and pad electrodes.

The presence of research activities for the development of new defibrillators is driving the market. For instance, in March 2019, the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio has reported that automatic implantable cardiac defibrillators (AICDs) deliver shocks to the heart to correct the arrhythmias. Also, the researchers showed that an AICD could also be programmed to measure the stroke volume. Thus, the increasing number of research activities are driving the market.

The cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) segment is expected to boost the market over the forecast period. This is owing to the increased adoption of CPR and the high survival rate associated with it. For instance, according to the new research in the American Heart Association’s (AHA) journal Circulation, on April 2, 2019,  a Swedish review of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest data showed the rates of bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) nearly doubled, and compression-only (or Hands-Only CPR) increased six-fold over 18 years. The chance of survival was doubled for any form of CPR compared with no CPR. Thus, promising results like the improved survival rates using CPR are driving the market.

Cardiac arrest treatment market has been segmented into hospitals, independent pharmacies, and others based on the distribution channel. The hospital segment is expected to dominate the global cardiac arrest treatment market, owing to the increased number of hospital admissions for the treatment of cardiac arrest. For instance, the American Heart Association using CARES – Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival’s 2017 report, estimated that,  from 76,161 cases of out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) reported by EMS, 10.4% survived to hospital discharge.
