ECG Cables and Lead Wires Market Overview


The global ECG cables and lead wires market size is projected to be worth USD 3.17 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period (2022 - 2030). Electrocardiogram cables and lead wires are used in the electrocardiogram, which is used in monitoring and diagnosing heart disease as well as in the electrocardiography procedure. These cables and lead wires have electrodes and transfer electrical pulses to test for electrode-related testing, ultrasound testing, and medical imaging. The factors that influence the market's growth are the increasing incidences of cardiovascular diseases and the technological advancements in ECG with cables and lead wires. Moreover, the untapped emerging market is further expected to provide lucrative market growth opportunities. However, the high risk of cross-contamination from ECG cables and lead wires further retards the market's growth.


COVID-19 Analysis


The supply chain in the ECG cable and lead wire market is important to meeting customer demands. The COVID-19 had an impact on the healthcare industry, as many countries rely on other countries for raw materials and technology. Raw materials needed to manufacture ECG cable and lead wire—tinned copper, silvered copper, tinned/silvered tinsel, or carbon fiber—were in short supply during the initial first and second waves of COVID-19.


However, COVID-19 had influenced several cardiovascular diseases such as myocardial injury, arrhythmia, acute coronary syndrome, and venous thromboembolism. COVID-19 causes inflammation and a condition called "cytokine release syndrome." The excessive inflammation disrupted the cardiovascular system and further influenced several CVD diseases such as arrhythmia, blood clots, myocarditis, and pericarditis. Hence, the increasing number of cardiovascular diseases increases the demand for ECG, further fueling the overall market's growth.


ECG Cables Lead Wires Market Dynamics


Drivers




  • Increasing incidences of cardiovascular diseases

    • Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of premature deaths and disabilities. Several factors influence cardiovascular diseases, including lack of physical activity, a sedentary lifestyle, smoking, diabetes, and obesity. Further, in 2019, it has been estimated that approximately 17.9 million people died from CVD. Hence, increasing CVD incidences increase the demand for ECG cables and lead wires, further propelling the ECG cables and lead wires market growth.



  • Technological advancements in ECG with cables and lead wires


Market Restraints




  • High risk of cross-contamination from ECG cables and lead wires

    • Healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) occur in healthcare facilities and affect hundreds of millions of patients worldwide each year. ECG lead wires and cables are common medical devices that come into direct contact with the patient’s skin. The contamination of reusable ECG lead wires is common. The ECG cables and lead wires are always attached to the skin in the intensive care unit (ICU). As per the research, gram-positive bacteria such as coagulase-negative staphylococci and aerobic spore-forming bacteria are mostly found on the skin area where wires and lead wires are located.

    • Moreover, the presence of bacteria is also associated with the environment. ECG lead wires have a higher percentage in the emergency department (ED) than in the operating room and ICU. Moreover, in the neonatal ICU, the 90% of bacteria growth is due to ECG lead wires and cables. Hence, the high cross-contamination put patients' health at risk, which further retarded the growth of the lead wires and cables.




Market Opportunities




  • Untapped emerging economies

    • Emerging economies provide lucrative market growth opportunities. This is due to the increasing population, specifically the geriatric population. As per the Department of Economic and Social Affairs Population Division of the United Nations, in 2019, one in eleven older people aged up to 65 were living across the globe. Moreover, by 2050, one in six people will be 65 or older. The population's rapid urbanization and unhealthy lifestyle create lucrative market growth opportunities.

    • In addition, in 2019, according to the World Heart Federation, more than 1 million deaths were expected owing to CVD in sub-Saharan Africa. Furthermore, improving healthcare infrastructure in developing regions increases the likelihood that such devices will be used consistently. Hence, improving healthcare infrastructure, rising geriatric population, and increasing CVD prevalence among the older population in developing countries are further projected to create market opportunities.




Value Chain Analysis


The global ECG cables and lead wires market is projected to exhibit significant growth over the forecast period, which can be attributed to factors like the rising geriatric population and increasing cardiac surgical procedures. The value chain analysis for the market comprises five major components, which start with research and product development, followed by the manufacturing of the products, distribution, and sales, and end with post-marketing surveillance.
