The rapidly rising geriatric population is also leading to the growth of the automated external defibrillator (AED) market. After Japan and China, the U.S. has the third-fastest growing aging population. As per the 2018 Population Reference Bureau report, the number of Americans aged 65 years and above is predicted to rise two-fold, i.e. to more than 98 million by 2060 from 46 million in 2014. Elderly people are more prone to chronic diseases, primarily cardiovascular diseases, owing to which, the demand for AEDs is growing. 

A major trend being witnessed in the AED market is the rising focus on installing AEDs in public spaces. The awareness regarding the life-saving potential of AEDs in emergency situations is increasing, owing to which, they are widely being deployed in public places, such as schools and colleges, railway stations, shopping centers, malls, airports, and leisure centers. Since these devices can be utilized by anyone in case of emergencies, they are also called public access defibrillators.
