Dublin, Oct. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/dpmg48/automated) has announced the addition of the "Automated External Defibrillator Market (Trends, Technology & End-Users) (2012-2017)" report to their offering.
The automated external defibrillator market is segmented based on product type into two categories - semi-automated and fully automated defibrillators. Based on end-users,the AED market is classified into five categories, namely, hospitals, pre-hospital, public access, alternate care, and home; the market is forecast till 2017.Automated external defibrillators play an important role in saving the lives of sudden cardiac arrest victims.Considering the life-saving potential of AEDs, legislations requiring installation of public access defibrillators (PAD) have been passed in the U.S., Japan, and certain European countries.
The global AED market was worth $616million in the year 2012. Increasing incidences of cardiovascular disease, growing awareness about the lifesaving potential of AED, increasing installation of public access AEDs, and advancing technology are accelerating the growth of this market. However, product recalls, and intense competition in mature markets will hamper the growth of this market, to a certain extent.
The market for automated external defibrillator has become very dynamic, with companies in this segment adopting growth strategies of collaborations, agreements, and acquisitions. Untapped emerging markets and home defibrillators represent vast opportunities for key players in this market.
The geographies covered in this study are North America, Europe, Japan, Asia and Rest of the world (RoW). North America is the largest market for AED, followed by Japan and Europe. North America and Japan are expected to grow at a slower pace, primarily due to a certain amount of saturation in the market. The Asian market is poised to register maximum growth over the next five years, owing to the increasing installation of AEDs and rising prevalence of cardiovascular diseases.
