Ablation devices are an attractive avenue for new market entrants due to their lucrative growth potential and better investment returns. Several medical device manufacturers are beginning to venture into this market, and the existing players are on a hoard to expand their geographic reach and accelerate product development and commercialization. Strengthening of R&D efforts, outsourcing and localization of manufacturing, and widening distribution networks in high-growth emerging markets are the key trends observed in this market. Overall, the global market for ablation devices is highly competitive, with multiple players specializing in their respective fields. Consolidation activities are being increasingly witnessed on the competitive front to expand product portfolios and strengthen product pipelines. Ablation generator devices are the largest segment in the device categories due to their higher price and growing installation base. On the other hand, the disposables and accessories segment is the fastest-growing segment owing to the rapid replacement rates of such equipment.

Based on energy delivery type, the global ablation devices market is segmented into:

  • Electrical
  • Radiofrequency
  • Cryoablation
  • Radiation
  • Laser
  • Ultrasound
  • Microwave
  • Hydrothermal

Radiofrequency ablation is the most significant segment among all the energy type categories and has been widely used in ablation treatments. Several ablation devices use radiofrequency to generate heat. RF ablation catheters are commonly used in cardiology, where the devices have an exposed metal probe that delivers a therapeutic dose. RF catheters are used for nerve and tissue ablation applications such as arrhythmia, tumor ablation, and pain reduction. Some RF devices are directly inserted in the target area through minimally invasive procedures. RF ablation is also used for cutting and dissecting tissue during conventional open procedures. The dominance of RF ablation is currently facing challenges due to the emergence of new ablation technologies such as microwaves, cryoablation, and ultrasound. Geographically, the ablation devices market is cumulative across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America.

Further elucidation of this segmentation is as follows:

  • North America (U.S. and Canada)
  • Europe (U.K., Germany, and the Rest of Europe)
  • Asia-Pacific (Japan, China, and the Rest of Asia-Pacific)
  • Latin America
  • Middle East and Africa

North America is the largest market for ablation devices on the global front. Huge demand from the geriatric population with chronic diseases for non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures and rapid regulatory approvals in the U.S. market are the key drivers contributing to the dominance of this region. Other North American ablation devices market drivers include an evolving reimbursement scenario, higher healthcare expenditure, and greater awareness. On the other hand, Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing regional market for ablation devices. The rapidly evolving healthcare infrastructure, flourishing medical tourism, and improving healthcare infrastructure are the key drivers of the Asia-Pacific ablation devices market.
