Ablation Technologies Market by Product (Radiofrequency, Ultrasound (ESWL, HIFU), Laser, Electrical (Argon Plasma, IRE), Cryotherapy, Microwave, Hydrothermal) & Application (Cardiovascular, Cancer, Pain Management, Orthopedics) - Global Forecasts to 2021
The global ablation technologies market is expected to reach USD 4.73 billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 10.9% from 2016 to 2021. The growth of the market is driven by factors such as the increasing number of ablation procedures, rising incidence of cancer, growing prevalence of cardiovascular diseases, and the emergence of next-generation ablation products and technologies. However, product recalls and therapeutic challenges of the ablation devices are problems faced by market players in the market. Increasing funding for the development of novel ablation devices and emerging markets such as China, India, and Mexico are creating opportunities for the players involved in the market.
In this report, the market has been segmented on the basis of product (light/laser ablators, radiofrequency ablators, electrical ablators, ultrasound ablators, microwave ablators, cryoablation devices, and hydrothermal ablators), type (light/laser, radiofrequency, electrical, ultrasound, microwave, cryoablation, and hydrothermal), application (cancer, cardiovascular, gynecological, ophthalmological, urological, orthopedic, pain management, and cosmetic surgery), and region (North America, Europe, APAC, and the RoW).
The radiofrequency ablators market is estimated to account for the largest share of the market in 2016, followed by the light/laser ablators market. Use of RF ablators in primary interventional therapy for the treatment of many cardiac arrhythmias is a key factor driving the segment. Better temperature control by RF ablators as compared to other ablation products (such as electrical and microwave ablators) and clinical advantages offered by temperature-controlled RF ablators over traditional ablation approaches are further supporting the growth of this segment.
Geographically, North America (comprising the U.S. and Canada) is expected to command the largest share of the market in 2016, followed by Europe. The market in North America is primarily driven by various factors including the presence of a large number of ablation product manufacturers, a significant rate of adoption of ablation treatment, large patient population base, and continuously rising prevalence of chronic disorders such as cancer and heart diseases (especially atrial fibrillation).
The market consists of a number of big, medium-sized, and small companies. In 2015, the market was dominated by Medtronic, plc (Ireland), Biosense Webster, Inc. (U.S.), St. Jude Medical, Inc. (U.S.), and Boston Scientific Corporation (U.S.). Product launches, mergers & acquisitions, geographical expansions, agreements, and joint ventures are the major strategies adopted by most of the market players to achieve growth in the market.
