How Tech Innovations Impact Cardiac Care

Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) have been on the rise across the globe and have seen exponential growth due to lifestyle disorders. To address this growing concern, the World Heart Federation observes September 29 as ‘World Heart Day’, every year. This year the primary goal for World Heart Day 2021 is ‘Globally harnessing the power of digital health to improve awareness, prevention and management of CVD’.

Cardiovascular diseases such as ischemic heart disease and stroke account for 17.7 million deaths in India and a significant patient pool involves younger population, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO). COVID-19 pandemic has added fuel to fire as it has been found that the virus can act as an independent driver for heart attack. Having said that, the world is witnessing a plethora of technological innovations in this space, saving numerous lives. India is not far behind and the country has witnessed significant improvements in heart care in the past decade.

According to a recent report by Mordor Intelligence, the market for cardiovascular devices in India consists of several global players along with the local players. However, the number of local players in the country is less and the market is dominated by global companies such as Abbott, Boston Scientific, Medtronic, etc. Since India is a growing economy, more global companies are expected to penetrate the market in the coming years.
