Cardiac arrest: Pacemaker manufacturers have faced intense price pressures from GPOs

As a highly competitive, high-margin industry that produces largely nondiscretionary products, the Pacemaker Manufacturing industry has experienced downstream demand growth, as an aging population, the expansion of healthcare coverage and technological advances bolstered market growth. However, pacemaker manufacturers have faced intense price pressures from group purchasing organizations (GPOs), which have leveraged their large scale to negotiate lower pacemaker prices for major purchasers like hospitals. As a result, industry revenue has declined over the past five years...purchase to read more.

Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • The aging population and rising access to healthcare will spur demand for pacemakers over the next five years
  • The industry has been negatively impacted by reforms of the PPACA
  • The aging population will drive demand for new pacemaker implants
  • Industry Report - Industry Locations Chapter

    The Pacemaker Manufacturing industry's establishments are largely concentrated in the West, Great Lakes, Mid-Atlantic and Southeast regions. Typically, industry manufacturers locate near input commodity manufacturers (e.g. companies that manufacture batteries and leads) and healthcare providers. For example, locating near heart rhythm specialists, or electrophysiologists, is integral for industry operators to cater to this downstream market yet keep distribution costs low. Moreover, pacemaker manufacturers may want to locate their establishments near the elderly population, which has a higher prevalence of bradyarrhythmia and arrhythmia than the general population, spurring demand for pacemakers.

    Single-Chamber Atrial Pacemakers (Scaps)
  • SCAPs typically only have one lead implanted and are generally indicated for patients with chronic atrial fibrillation with concomitant symptomatic bradycardia.
  • Dual Chamber Pacemakers (Dcps)
  • DCPS are used to treat symptomatic bradycardia in people with sick sinus syndrome, atrioventricular block, or both.
  • Group Purchasing Organization (Gpo)
  • An entity that is created to leverage the purchasing power of a group of businesses to obtain discounts from vendors based on the collective buying power of the GPO members.
  • Single-Chamber Ventricular Pacemakers (Scvps)
  • SCVPs involve the implantation of the pacemaker in the patient's right ventricle. Typically, SCVPs are dispensed to patients that do not require the maintenance of atrioventricular synchrony.
  • Single-Lead, Atrial-Sensing Ventricular Pacemakers
  • Traditionally, SAVPs have featured two leads, which are wires that carry the electric pulse from the pacemaker to the heart. SAVPs are used to treat patients that need to limit the number of leads.
