Heart Transplant Market Overview:

In 2021, the heart transplant market value is registered as USD 9,926.86 million and is expected to reach a significant rate of 10.10% with market size of USD 15,813.98 million during the forecast period 2022-2030.

Heart Transplantation is a method that replaces a damaged or diseased heart with a healthy heart from a deceased donor and restores the normal functioning in the human body. It extends the patient’s survival and improves the quality of life.  This heart transplant technology is preferred for patients who have the possibility of end-stage heart failure or who have failed for other treatment options. A heart before being implanted can stay alive without the presence of the human body for less than six hours which is stored on ice. TransMedics, Inc introduced the heart transplant device (Heart-in-a box) that is a prototype of functioning hearts surroundings and conditions which overcomes the time constraint of the heart staying alive functioning outside before implantation which augments the heart transplant storage market.

Coronary artery disease is one of the major causes of damage to the heart muscles that lead to heart failure. A few diseases that lead to heart failure are poor exercise tolerance, cough-especially at night, shortness of breath, fatigue, and fluid retention. The International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation report states that globally, nearly 500-600 pediatric heart transplantation procedures are performed annually which represents around 12% of the total number of heart transplantations performed. The major cause of heart failure in children is a congenital heart defect or cardiomyopathy.

COVID-19 Analysis:

The COVID-19 is a highly contagious disease that is caused by a virus, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) that is spread from one human to another human. Since 2019, nearly 213 countries are affected by this virus worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO) declares it as a public health emergency on March 11, 2020. During this pandemic, the demand for medical supplies increases for taking care of the infected people. The atomizers, life support machines, oxygen generators, and monitors are some of the respiratory support devices used in primary clinical treatment.

Due to the lockdowns, the supply chain of the raw material that is required to manufacture the heart transplant devices is disrupted in various countries. The heart transplant companies faced various issues for running the production. This leads to a delay in production. Hence the heart transplant market demand has been declined due to the slowdown of the production of the devices and to maintain the social distance people are staying in their homes and avoiding the treatment. The post-COVID-19, the market demand for heart transplant devices regains.

Market Dynamics:


Increasing the number of patients suffering from cardiovascular disease around the world is rising the demand for the treatment and surgeries related to heart is further surges the heart transplant market price. The rise in the geriatric population and the surging number of patients with high blood cholesterol levels are boosting the future of heart transplants.

Moreover, the growing mortality rate of patients succumbing to heart failure is augmenting the demand for heart transplants globally. The causing factors that affect and develop cardiovascular diseases are changes in lifestyle and food habits which escalate the heart transplant market growth. The surgeries and treatments that use heart transplant devices for carrying out are arrhythmias treatment, coronary artery bypass grafting, aneurysms repair, total artificial hearts or ventricular assist devices, etc., apart from heart transplants which are further projected to accelerate the growth of the heart transplants therapeutics market.


As heart transplantation is a new experiment, this transplant box is not aware of many hospitals, laboratories, cardiac institutes, and research centers. Lack of awareness regarding this technology among the end-users is hindering the market growth. Lack of preservation of organ options in the market and there is no choice to choose for the end-users is limiting the growth of the market. Moreover, the heart transplants treatment price is very high that impeds the market growth.


An increase in demand for quality heart transplant devices is expected to lead to the application of advanced equipment which creates an opportunity to accelerate the growth of the market.


Lack of skilled surgeons for performing the surgeries of a heart transplant and shortage of heart donors are the major challenges projected to limit the market growth in the assessment period.
