# In August 2016, Biosense Webster, Inc. launched its THERMOCOOL SMARTTOUCH SF Catheter in the U.S. for the treatment of drug resistant paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. This helped the company to expand its product portfolio and increase its revenue base in the U.S.
# In May 2016, Galil Medical Inc. was acquired by the BTG plc group (a part of BTG International Ltd, U.K.); for a value of USD 110.0 million. BTG International is prominent manufacturer of cryoablation products and possesses strong product distribution network across Europe.
# In October 2016, Smith & Nephew established a new a sports medicine orthopedic devices manufacturing facility at Costa Rica with an investment of USD 55 million. This helped the company strengthen its product manufacturing capabilities and address the growing demand for ablation products in the ablation technologies market.
# In December 2015, Medtronic entered into a partnership with Baylis Medical (Canada) to increase patient access to its OsteoCool RF Ablation System and further innovation in the system. Medtronic had acquired the OsteoCool technology and related IP from Baylis Medical in December 2015.
# In April 2016, Abbott Laboratories and St. Jude Medical, Inc. entered into a merger agreement. As per the agreement Abbott will acquire St. Jude Medical by end of the 2016. This acquisition is expected to increase the global presence and capabilities of both the companies and diversify their product offerings in the medical devices industry.
The radiofrequency ablation segment will continue to dominate the ablation technologies market, by type, during the forecast period
Based on type, the ablation technologies market is categorized into laser/light, radiofrequency, ultrasound, electrical, cryoablation, microwave, and hydrothermal ablation technologies. The radiofrequency ablation segment accounted for the largest share of the ablation technologies market in 2016. This is majorly due to the lower cost of radiofrequency ablation procedures as compared to the other ablation techniques. Also, radiofrequency ablation is preferred due to its safety, efficacy, and ease of use.
