Ablation Technology Market – Growth Potential Offered By Emerging Markets

Global Industry Dynamics:

Emergence of next-generation ablation products and significant adoption of minimally invasive procedures coupled with increasing number of ablation procedures are the key factors driving the growth of the global Ablation Research Technology Market. Furthermore, the rapidly increasing aging population with higher risk of target diseases and increasing number of hospitals, surgical, and ablation centers are also fueling the market growth.

However, ongoing healthcare reforms in the U.S. and cost-containment measures adopted by various governments are the key factors limiting the growth of this market. In addition, products recalls as well as therapeutic challenges related to efficacy of ablation products are the key challenges faced by industry players in the global ablation technologies market.

Driver: Increasing number of ablation procedures

Minimally invasive alternatives involve less pain, less scarring, and offer a quicker recovery for patients. Moreover, these procedures are more economical as compared to traditional surgical procedures. Globally, the acceptance of minimally invasive surgeries is increasing as these procedures are safer and have lower mortality as well as complication rates as compared to open surgeries (Source: Stanford University Medical Center Research).
