Electrophysiology (EP) and ablation devices include markets for ablation catheters, diagnostic electrophysiology (EP) catheters and electrophysiology (EP) lab systems. The electrophysiology (EP) laboratory devices segment is categorized into 3D mapping systems, EP recording systems, remote steering systems, intracardiac echocardiography systems (ICE) and radiofrequency (RF) ablation generators. The cardiac ablation catheter market includes RF and cryoablation catheters.
In 2018, the total market for cardiac rhythm management, electrophysiology and ablation devices experienced an increase over the previous year. Since these devices are critical life-saving apparatuses, the aging U.S. population means continued market growth for all market segments in this report, with particularly strong growth in the electrophysiology (EP) and ablation markets. Over the
This global market research includes conventional EP catheters and advanced EP catheters analyzed as a combined market segment. The analysis also covers radiofrequency (RF) cardiac ablation catheters and cryoablation catheters.
The total market for Europe’s cardiac rhythm management devices market is growing at a rate of 3.9%, which will take the 2018 market value of €2.2 billion up to €2.9 billion by 2025. Reprocessed diagnostic electrophysiology (EP) catheters accounted for a significant percentage of all diagnostic EP catheters used. Reprocessed catheters have a much lower
