Electrocardiograph (ECG) is a non-invasive medical equipment that measures and monitors the heart's electrical activity, in order to diagnose cardiac problems. The DECG market offers steady growth opportunities due to the globally rising incidence of lifestyle diseases and the increasing healthcare delivery at the private physician level.

Thus, the global DECG market is expected to register high single digit growth despite the high reimbursement costs and competitive equipment pricing in U.S. and Europe.
