Atrial Fibrillation Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019

Transparency Market Research
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is characterized by irregular and often rapid heart rate responsible for poor blood flow to the body and is one of the most common types of arrhythmia. It occurs in cases where the -heart’s electrical signals cause the atria to fibrillate, i.e. contract irregularly and very fast. The risk of developing atrial fibrillation usually occurs in the geriatric population and its risk is high in patients with mitral valve diseases, coronary heart disorder, congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathy, etc. Atrial fibrillation is also characterized by collection of blood in the atria and as a result there is absence of synchronization between the upper and lower chambers of the heart thereby increasing the risk of stroke.


The common symptoms of atrial fibrillation include heart palpitations, weakness, dizziness, chest pain during exertion and shortness of breath. Atrial fibrillation invites many serious medical conditions which might need emergency treatment. There are three major types of atrial fibrillation namely persistent atrial fibrillation, longstanding atrial fibrillation and paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation can be suspected by feeling the pulse of the patients but to confirm, the patient has to undergo certain medical investigations such as an electrocardiogram (ECG), blood tests, chest x-ray, echocardiogram and others. Atrial fibrillation can be treated therapeutics which can control and restore normal heart rhythm and other treatment measures includes the use of cardioversion, a process of giving controlled electric shock to heart and the use of pacemaker which controls abnormal heart rhythm.

The atrial fibrillation market can be segmented based on the type of diagnostics and treatment methods and geography. Need for effective diagnostics and therapeutics, increased cardiovascular risk and increasing costs of cardiovascular complications which results in the development of more effective treatment medications are some of the factors which drive the growth of this market. On the other hand, increasing side effects and ineffectiveness of the therapeutics used for treating atrial fibrillation might hamper the growth of the therapeutics market. The major players

competing in the global atrial fibrillation market are Baxter International, Inc., Becton Dickinson & Company, C.R. Bard, Inc. and St. Jude Medical, Inc.
