The most prevalent arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation, is brought on by irregular electrical impulses that reach the heart's upper chambers (atria). One of the most frequent heart rhythm disorders is atrial fibrillation (AF). The consequence is a quick and erratic rhythm. 100 to 175 beats a minute are possible heart rates caused by atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation causes confusion, fatigue, dizziness, and fainting. The general healthcare system regards this condition's treatment as a strategically important issue because it is a potentially fatal disease and costly to treat. One major factor anticipated to propel the international atrial fibrillation market during the forecast period is the rise in the number of elderly people worldwide. Additionally, the growing senior population worldwide is fueling market expansion, as the risk of atrial fibrillation is higher in this group of people.

By meeting the unmet medical needs in the atrial fibrillation area, promising outcomes from clinical trials, including combination pharmacological therapy, are projected to propel the worldwide atrial fibrillation market. Businesses are conducting more of these trials to offer patients with atrial fibrillation a better course of treatment. A rise in the prevalence of atrial fibrillation in the older population, technological advancements, and an increasing demand for catheter ablation as a cardiac arrhythmia therapy are driving the growth of the atrial fibrillation market. The lack of skilled specialists and unfavorable preference for pharmacological therapies (drugs) over AF therapeutic devices are predicted to hinder the atrial fibrillation business. A typical and prospective atrial fibrillation treatment strategy is combined pharmacological therapy.

The combined pharmaceutical therapy showed promising results in clinical trials and would help individuals with atrial fibrillation get the medical care they require. This aspect is anticipated to impact the atrial fibrillation market internationally. Additionally, studies using an animal model to study the combined therapy produced effective and favorable anti-arrhythmic outcomes. When medication is ineffective, catheter ablation treats abnormal heart rhythms. It is a minimally invasive, low-risk approach for treating cardiac arrhythmias. The catheter ablation device also involves the removal of damaged cardiac tissues that are the source of erratic heartbeats.

A new method of detecting people at risk of atrial fibrillation, which increases the likelihood of suffering from a transient ischemic attack (TIA) and strokes by up to five times, has been discovered by UK researchers. The University of East Anglia researchers identified four distinct indicators potentially identifying patients who would develop atrial fibrillation. These include advanced age, elevated diastolic blood pressure, and issues with the upper left chamber of the heart's coordination and functionality. The researchers developed a simple tool that practitioners may use to quickly identify patients at high risk, which will aid in diagnosing and treating more patients and lower their risk of future strokes.

Atrial Fibrillation Market Trends

  • Rising incidence rate of atrial fibrillation due to high prevalence of hypertension and obesity to boost market growth

The primary causes of cardiovascular diseases, especially atrial fibrillation, are usually high blood pressure and obesity. The Framingham Heart Study found that obesity raised the chance of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation developing to persistent atrial fibrillation by 45% to 50% and that hypertension was linked to 14% of atrial fibrillation risks. Due to socioeconomic factors including dietary and other habits brought on by a person's lifestyle, the prevalence of these diseases is increasing (excessive alcohol consumption and smoking). According to WHO assumptions, 35% of people aged 20 years and over were overweight. Since 1980, the prevalence of obesity has nearly doubled worldwide, and it is predicted to rise quickly in the coming years. In 2008, there were 1 billion people worldwide who had hypertension. According to the WHO, there were 40% of low, middle, and upper middle-income nations and 35% of high-income countries with hypertension prevalence in 2008. The worldwide atrial fibrillation market CAGR is anticipated to grow throughout the forecast period due to the high and rising prevalence of these disorders.

However, from over projected period, rising atrial fibrillation rates are anticipated to fuel the expansion of the worldwide atrial fibrillation market. For instance, data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published in July 2022 indicated that more than 454,000 hospitalizations in the United States each year have atrial fibrillation as the major diagnosis. Each year, the disease causes roughly 158,000 deaths in the United States.

Moreover, the combination pharmaceutical therapy is a model and promising atrial fibrillation treatment option. In clinical trials, the combined pharmacological therapy demonstrated positive outcomes and would assist meet the unmet medical needs of patients with atrial fibrillation. The atrial fibrillation market is expected to be driven by this factor globally. Additionally, research on the combined therapy in an animal model revealed positive and effective anti-arrhythmic results. The Boston Atrial Fibrillation Symposium have seen the introduction of the clinical trials intended to evaluate the effectiveness of a combined therapy using Multaq and Ranexa. Around 150 individuals with non-permanent atrial fibrillation and pacemaker implants were enrolled in the HARMONY clinical trial. Preclinical data from this investigation indicate that this combination therapy, especially in terms of safety and efficacy, is well positioned in the existing atrial fibrillation market revenue.

Atrial Fibrillation Market Segment Insights

Atrial Fibrillation Treatment Insights

The atrial fibrillation market segmentation, based on treatment, includes medications, non-surgical procedures, surgical procedures. The surgical procedures atrial fibrillation segment held the majority share in 2022 in the atrial fibrillation market revenue. This is primarily owing to the increased use of cardiac monitoring technology during atrial fibrillation treatment. The number of patients with arrhythmia or a condition with an irregular heartbeat has increased, which has increased demand for cardiac monitors.

Atrial Fibrillation End User Insights

The atrial fibrillation market segmentation, based on end-user, includes hospitals, electrophysiology labs, ambulatory surgical centers. The hospitals segment dominated the market in 2022. This is due to the increasing use of laser and radio frequency ablation technologies also rising investment globally for the development hospital infrastructure by public and private players is anticipated to support the market growth.

Following Boston Scientific's announcement of encouraging findings from a clinical study for their system to treat people with atrial fibrillation (AF), the medical device manufacturer's stock had the best performance in the S&P 500. Rather than the more conventional thermal approach, the Farapulse Pulsed Field Ablation (PFA) removes cardiac tissue that is the cause of irregular heartbeats. Six hundred seven paroxysmal AF patients who had received a minimum of one anti-arrhythmic medication ineffectively in the past participated in the trial. The Farapulse met the major efficacy and safety criteria, according to data that demonstrated comparable performance to standard-of-care medicines.
