The automated external defibrillator (AED) market is segmented on the basis of product type into two categories - semi-automated and fully automated. Based on end-users, the AED market is classified into five categories, namely, hospitals, pre-hospital, public access, alternate care, and home.

The major drivers of this market are increasing installation of public access AEDs, growing awareness about the lifesaving potential of AED, increasing incidences of cardiovascular disease, and advancing technology. However, product recalls, and intense competition in mature markets will hamper the growth of this market, to a certain extent.

The global automated external defibrillator market was worth $616million in the year 2012; North America was the largest market, followed by Japan and Europe. However, North America and Japan are likely to grow at lower CAGRs compared to the Asian market due to an intense competition and certain amount of saturation in the market.The Asian market is poised to register maximum growth over the next five years, owing to the increasing installation of public access AEDs.

Key players in the AED market are Philips Healthcare (The Netherlands), Cardiac Science (U.S.), ZOLL Medical Corporation (U.S.), Nihon Kohden (Japan), Physio-Control (U.S.), Defibtech (U.S.), HeartSine Technologies (U.S.), and Schiller (Switzerland).
