Heart Tumor Market Overview:


The Heart Tumor Market is expected to reach USD 1.36 billion by 2030 at 6.31% CAGR during the forecast period 2022-2030.


An abnormal growth of heart tissue is referred to as a cardiac tumor, which can be either cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous. Cardiac Tumor can also be categorized as primary (coming from the heart itself) or secondary. Primary cardiac tumor is extremely uncommon, affecting just around 1 in 3000 people. The majority of initial heart tumor—75%—are benign. Secondary cardiac tumor most frequently develops in people with lung cancer, breast cancer, melanoma, renal cell carcinoma, or lymphoma and are 20–30 times more likely than primary cardiac tumor. The market is driven by factors like the growing prevalence of cardiac tumors, increasing number of cancer research and funding, and the rising number of strategic initiatives. Nevertheless, increasing initiatives by public and private organizations to drive awareness regarding heart tumor is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for the players operating in the heart tumor market. However, lack of awareness among people, and lack of skilled radiologists could hamper the growth of the heart tumor market.


COVID-19 Analysis


The COVID-19 pandemic had negatively impacted the heart tumor market in the initial phase of the pandemic, causing a reduction in productivity, shutdown/reduced activity in manufacturing plants, and disruption in the supply chain.


However, the COVID-19 pandemic has moderately disrupted the production and revenue of many companies. Most key players have their manufacturing units in different regions which were highly affected by this pandemic due to restriction laid down by the authorities to curb virus transmission. Key companies such as Koninklijke Philips N.V. (Netherlands), Siemens AG (Germany), Hitachi, Ltd. (Japan), GE Healthcare (US) and others are highly dependent on several regional markets for revenue generation, but the pandemic and slowdown globally had negatively affected the company’s growth in these regions in 2020. For instance, the shortage of Iodinated Contrast Media (ICM) due to a General Electric manufacturing shutdown in Shanghai, China owing to COVID-19 lockdown in April 2022, has caused significant effects on radiology practices globally.


Heart Tumor Market Dynamics


Market Drivers



  • Growing prevalence of cardiac tumors

    • The growing prevalence of heart tumors including cardiac sarcoma, arrhythmia, chest pain, stroke, and pericardial effusion is one of the major factors driving the heart tumor market. In addition, the growing incidences of cardiac sarcoma and rising asymptomatic carriers, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, have further contributed to the market growth. This is due to the rising chest pain and swelling of the feet, legs, ankles, or belly. It also causes the veins to stand out leading to the growing prevalence of cardiac sarcoma attributable to an increased risk of heart tumor. Moreover, according to the data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (US) in 2021 stated that 697,000 people in the US died from heart disease in 2020, which is 1 in every 5 deaths. These aforementioned factors have positively contributed to the overall market growth.

However, nearly half of them could have been prevented by receiving proper treatment on time. Moreover, the lack is awareness is more in the developing regions of the world where the people are not conditioned to understand cardiac problems beyond the need. According to a study conducted by National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), around 77.2% of males and 78.2% of females aged above 60–79 is estimated to have cardiac cancer. The study also stated that a significant proportion of the population suffering from cardiac health is not aware of cardiovascular disease. Therefore, a lack of awareness regarding cardiac cancer negatively impacts the growth of the heart tumor market



  • Lack of skilled radiologists


Market Opportunities



  • Increasing Initiatives by public and private organizations to drive awareness regarding heart tumor

    • An increase in the number of initiatives by various public and private organizations to create awareness and educate people regarding cardiac tumors is anticipated to bolster the market growth in the forthcoming year. For instance, in February 2021, European Commission launched its Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan to sets out a new EU approach to cancer prevention, treatment, and survivorship. Furthermore, the initiative is aimed at increasing awareness regarding the risks of tumors and educating the multitude to care for their health, recognize the symptoms, and prompt people at risk and their families to take action

    • Moreover, increasing Initiatives by public and private organizations to drive awareness regarding heart tumor are anticipated to provide lucrative growth opportunities for market players globally.

Segment Overview


Tumor Type



  • Primary Tumor


Primary Heart Cardiac (PCT) is a deadly and uncommon condition. Primary tumors are classified into malignant and benign. For instance, according to a SpringerLink article from October 2020, 10% are malignant tumors that are pathologically labelled as sarcomas, and about 90% are benign tumors. Moreover, the major benign tumors that have high chances of becoming malignant are myxomas, rhabdomyoma, and others, including fibromas, lipomas, hemangiomas, papillary fibroelastomas, cystic tumors of the atrioventricular node, and paragangliomas. Soft tissue sarcomas are the common PCTs.



  • Secondary Tumor


The common secondary cardiac tumor is epicardial compared to myocardial and endocardial, and only 10% are symptomatic secondary tumors. For instance, in June 2020, a ScienceDirect article on cardiac tumors reported that SCTs are 20 to 40 times common and frequent than Primary Cardiac Tumors (PCTs). At autopsy, approximately 12% of patients are diagnosed with SCTs, with the majority remaining clinically silent.


By Diagnosis & Treatment



  • Diagnosis


The heart tumor can be diagnosed by CT scans, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans, nuclear imaging, echocardiography, and others. The cardiac CT scan is used to identify narrowed or blocked arteries. Moreover, cardiac MRI provides multiplanar information related to the cardiac masses, including surrounding structures. It is also beneficial due to the appropriate identification of benign and malignant tumors as well as in providing psuedomass information. In addition, other diagnosis methods includes for heart tumor is Electrocardiogram (ECG), electrophysiology tests and cardiac biopsy.



  • Treatment


The treatment segment includes surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and others. Surgical procedures include surgical excision, transplantation, and catheterization. Additionally, Surgery removes the growth of cancerous tumors or cancerous tumors. For instance, according to the Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery published in April 2019, it is effective, durable, and safe for primary benign cardiac tumors. A study conducted in the Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery from 2008 to 2018 showed that 19 men and 31 women were enrolled with left atrium (80.0%), right atrium (16.0%), right ventricle (2.0%), and left ventricle (2.0%) from age 55 to 17.5 years.
