Cardiovascular devices are used in treating diseases related to the heart and the circulatory system. Cardiac Rhythm Management (CRM) devices are those devices which are used to restore the natural synchronized pumping rhythm of the heart. An implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is an electronic device that monitors the heart’s rhythm and delivers electric pulses if it detects an arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) to restore the heart’s natural rhythm.

In 2022, GlobalData’s Market Model methodology determined that the leading player in the implantable cardioverter defibrillators market in Switzerland was Medtronic followed by Biotronik SE, Abbott Laboratories and Boston Scientific.

ICDs contain three main components: a pulse generator, electrodes, and leads. However, the devices can also be leadless. Single Chamber ICD, Dual Chamber ICD and Subcutaneous ICD are tracked under this segment. A single chamber ICD attaches to one chamber of the heart i.e. , right ventricle, and monitors the electrical activity of that chamber. A dual chamber ICD monitors the electrical activity in two chambers of the heart (an atrium and a ventricle) and delivers electric pulses to one or both chambers in the event of an arrhythmia. The subcutaneous ICD (S-ICD) also known as leadless ICDs consists of an electrode and a pulse generator which functions without the placement of the electrical wires (leads) in the heart.

Following the widespread disruption resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic to the broader medical devices market during 2020 and 2021, the value of the implantable cardioverter defibrillators devices market within Switzerland was expected to be over $10m in 2022.
