LONDON--()--According to the latest market study released by Technavio, the global cardiac ablation market is projected to grow to USD 4.4 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of nearly 8% over the forecast period.

This research report titled ‘Global Cardiac Ablation Market 2017-2021‘ provides an in-depth analysis of the market in terms of revenue and emerging market trends. This market research report also includes up to date analysis and forecasts for various market segments and all geographical regions.

Cardiac ablation is an endovascular procedure that helps to treat an irregular heart rhythm and is performed with the help of an ablation device and catheter. The rising popularity of minimally invasive (MI) procedures with improved medical imaging is increasing the treatment option, which is driving the growth of the cardiac ablation market.

Based on the procedure, the report categorizes the global cardiac ablation market into the following segments:

  • Atrial fibrillation ablation
  • Supraventricular tachycardia ablation
  • Ventricular tachycardia ablation

Atrial fibrillation ablation

Atrial fibrillation is a condition where there is reduced blood flow to the body, leading to rapid or irregular heart rhythm. Atrial fibrillation ablation occupied a majority 55% of the cardiac ablation market in 2016,” says Srinivas Sashidhar, a lead analyst at Technavio for cardiovascular devices research.

Atrial fibrillation is the most common type of cardiac arrhythmia, which increases the risk of dementia, stroke, and heart failure. The increasing number of product approvals by the US FDA has helped vendors such as St. Jude Medical and CardioFocus to strengthen their market foothold.

Supraventricular tachycardia ablation

Supraventricular tachycardia is the improper electrical activity originating at or above the atrioventricular node in the heart. Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome is one of the causative factors for this condition, where there is a short-circuit in the heart's electrical system due to the abnormal electrical connection between the atria and ventricles.

Only a few companies in the market are developing supraventricular cardiac ablation products. St. Jude Medical's TactiCath Quartz irrigated ablation catheter, which is used for supraventricular tachycardia and atrial fibrillation, is one of the most widely used devices in the market segment.

Ventricular tachycardia ablation

Ventricular tachycardia results from some form of electrical damage to one of the ventricles, resulting in a pulse rate of more than 100 beats per minute. Ventricular tachycardia ablation is mostly used in combination with implantable cardiovascular defibrillators to prevent strokes,” says Srinivas.

Automatic Detection of Arrhythmic Substrate (ADAS-VT) developed by Galgo Medical is widely used to map the heart structure. Radiofrequency (RF) ablation catheters are a good option for the treatment of ventricular tachycardia, where the delivery of RF can be improved using robotic catheter ablation products such as Sensei X Robotic Catheter System developed by Hansen Medical.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Boston Scientific
  • Medtronic
  • St. Jude Medical
