Global Ablation Devices Market Industry Analysis, Growth,Opportunity and Forecast 2022


Ablation Devices Market Report, published by Allied Market Research, forecasts that the global market is expected to garner $6,658 million by 2022, registering a CAGR of 11.7% during the period 2016-2022. Thermal ablation devices segment is estimated to dominate the market throughout the analysis period. About two-thirds of the world ablation devices market share was captured by cardiovascular and cancer segment in 2015.

View Detail Summary of this report:

Ablation is a minimally invasive procedure that treats various chronic diseases such as cancer and pulmonary conditions, as well as used for aesthetic procedures. The market is expected to grow at a significant rate due to various advantages of ablation procedures (short time duration, minimized blood loss and damage to healthy organs and tissues, operator friendly) over conventional methods such as chemotherapy, as it has high side-effects. The introduction of innovative and advanced ablation technologies and the increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases and awareness about the procedure would contribute towards the market growth. However, the market growth is hindered by unstable reimbursement policies, stringent government regulations, limited awareness, and the high cost of the procedure.

Thermal segment dominated the world ablation devices market in 2015 and is expected to continue with its dominance throughout the forecast period. This is attributed to the various applications of thermal ablation devices for cancer and cardiovascular surgeries. However, owing to the higher success rate and advantages, non-thermal technologies is estimated to be the fastest growing segment propelling at an estimated CAGR of 17.7%.

In the year 2015, cancer segment held the majority of the market share due to increase in the number of cancer patients and high precision of ablation techniques to destroy cancer cells. In addition, it is estimated to retain its market position throughout the forecast period, registering a CAGR of 11.4%. Cardiovascular is anticipated to be the fastest growing segment, as cardiac ablation provides site-specific treatment and prevents infection to the surrounding tissues.

With the robotic ablation devices, the procedure can be conducted with miniaturization, precision, and smaller incisions. Hence, it is expected to be the fastest growing function segment. However, this technique is relatively new and expensive as compared to the conventional methods. Therefore, currently, conventional ablation devices is the dominant segment in the ablation device market.

By procedure, tumor ablation segment occupies the largest share in the ablation device market and is expected to maintain its lead throughout the analysis period. The number of cancer cases are increasing and it is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the world. For instance, in 2012, there were about 14 million new cases and 8.2 million cancer-related deaths.

The ablation devices market is growing at the steady pace due to the growth in the incidence of cardiac diseases such as atrial fibrillation (AF), atrial flutter, and cardiac arrhythmias. Hence, different mid-to-large sized companies have augmented research and development (R&D) investments in this market. Moreover, even smaller companies have shifted their focus and increased their R&D activities, which has led to a surge in product developments (approvals & launches), and in turn, contributing to the growth of ablation devices industry. For instance, Medtronic launched the new Barrx 360 Express radiofrequency ablation balloon catheter in April 2016, which is a self-adjusting circumferential RFA catheter to remove diseased tissues. This catheter is anticipated to aid the treatment of Barrett’s esophagus.

Presently, North America and Europe have the highest growth potential due to established reimbursement policies, high buying power, rapid adoption of minimal-invasive therapies, raise in the count of the ging population, and increasing prevalence of patients with chronic illnesses. However, the market would gain traction in the developing regions of Asia-Pacific and Latin America as well, due to the increase in urbanization & disposable income, a large number of undiagnosed patients, and growing awareness about ablation devices.

The key players profiled in this report include Boston Scientific Corporation, AngioDynamics, Inc., AtriCure, Inc., St. Jude Medical, Inc., Medtronic plc, Conmed Corporation, Olympus Corporation, Johnson & Johnson, Smith & Nephew plc, and BTG plc.
