Global Cardiac Rhythm Management (CRM) Devices Batteries Market: Overview

Rising prevalence of arrhythmic patients globally have resulted in increasing number of CRM devices implantations thus, escalating the market growth over the forecast period. CRM devices are placed in the upper chest of the patient’s body to help control irregular heartbeats or arrhythmias. Arrhythmias can arise as a result of several reasons including myocardial infarction, myocardial ischemia or due to electrolyte imbalance and drug toxicity. CRM devices are battery powered devices that help keep track on heartbeats of a patient. These include, ICD’s, ICP’s and CRT devices. Most of the CRM device manufacturers sell their own batteries and have begun to capitalize on improving their overall battery performance so as to extend the lifecycle of their CRM devices. This has led to substantial increase in production capacity of batteries in the near future. CRM devices are powered by various battery chemistries. However, newer devices that utilize lithium manganese dioxide do not suffer with the midlife charge time issue that has increased their sales significantly. Also, introduction of leadless pacing have pushed the battery manufacturers to introduce batteries with improved chemistry and technology further driving the revenues in global CRM device batteries market.

Global Cardiac Rhythm Management (CRM) Devices Batteries Market: Drivers and Trends

Significant investments in the lithium battery supply chain and the growing need of cheaper yet safer lithium batteries has resulted in increasing sales of the CRM devices batteries. However, huge amount of data supporting the number of CRM devices recalls have significantly affected the sales of such devices over the forecast period. One of the primary reason for this is devices suffering issues with battery depletion. Others include capacitor complications and voltage issues.

The report is a combination of primary and secondary research.

Globally, rising number of patients with increased risk of developing life-threatening ventricular arrhythmia is expected to fuel the demand for ICD devices over the forecast period. Recent introduction of ICD with dual function modality is expected to create higher revenues for the segment in the coming years. However, the type of battery chemistry utilized to power such devices that has significantly gained prominent market share is lithium silver vanadium oxide followed by lithium iodide cells. This is attributed to low self-discharge rates and high cell potential of these batteries leading to low current currents and improve longevity.
