Ablation is a type of minimally invasive surgical procedure that destroys or removes the affected tissue as a part of disease treatment. Ablation devices are most commonly utilized in the treatment of cancer, cardiovascular disease, gynecological conditions, ophthalmologic disorders, urological diseases, and orthopedic diseases.

The ablation technologies market is categorized into eight major segments on the basis of products, namely, light/laser ablators (excimer laser and cold laser ablation devices), radiofrequency ablators (temperature-controlled RF ablators, fluid-cooled RF ablators, and robotic catheter manipulation systems), ultrasound ablators (ultrasonic surgical systems, high-intensity focused ultrasound, extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy systems, and magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound ablators), electrical ablators (argon plasma/beam coagulators and irreversible electroporation ablators), cryoablation devices (tissue contact probe, tissue spray probe, and epidermal and subcutaneous cryoablation devices), microwave ablators, and hydrothermal ablators (endometrial hydrothermal balloon ablation devices). This market study is based on several aspects of ablation technologies, including type (laser/light, radiofrequency, ultrasound, electrical, cryoablation, microwave, and hydrothermal ablation technology), application (cosmetic surgery, cardiovascular disease treatment, pain management, cancer treatment, ophthalmologic treatment, gynecological treatment, urologic treatment, orthopedic treatment, and others), and region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the World).

The global market for ablation technologies is expected to be valued at USD 2.70 Billion in 2015, growing at a CAGR of 10.5% during the forecast period to reach 4.44 Billion in 2020.

On the other hand, stringent regulatory requirements for product approvals, healthcare cost containment initiatives taken by various governments, and high cost of ablation devices are the key challenges faced by leading players in the global market.

The global market for ablation technologies is highly competitive with RF ablation, laser ablation, ultrasound ablation, and electrical ablation as its key segments. The RF ablation segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market for ablation technologies in 2015, attributing to its high safety, efficacy, and short procedural duration for the treatment of cancer, AF, and pain management, among others.

On the basis of products, the ablation technologies market is segmented into light/laser ablators, radiofrequency ablators, ultrasound ablators, electrical ablators, cryoablation devices, microwave ablators, and hydrothermal ablators. The microwave ablators segment is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR of from 2015 to 2020. This high growth is primarily due to its high success rate in cancer treatment as well as advantages offered by microwave ablation over RF ablation (for example, microwave ablation devices can produce larger ablation zones and do not suffer as much from the heat sink effect that can handicap RF ablation).

On the basis of application, the global market is segmented into cosmetic surgery, cardiovascular disease treatment, pain management, cancer treatment, ophthalmologic treatment, gynecological treatment, urologic treatment, orthopedic treatment, and others. The cardiovascular diseases treatment segment is expected to account for the largest share of the global market for ablation technologies in 2015. This application segment is projected to grow at a highest CAGR during the forecast period. The large market share and high growth rate of the cardiovascular diseases treatment segment can be attributed to the rising incidences of AF across the globe coupled with the development of novel ablation technologies for the treatment of AF, and increasing market accessibility of cardiac ablation catheters worldwide.

North America (comprising the U.S. and Canada) is expected to account for the largest share of the global ablation technologies market, followed by Europe in 2015. The Asia-Pacific market for ablation technologies is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The significant growth reported by the APAC region is propelled by factors such as large target patient population, growing preferences for minimally invasive treatment procedures, geographical expansions of the global market players in the APAC region, and increasing government healthcare expenditures.

Ablation technologies is an attractive market for new entrants owing to the significant growth potential and high returns on investment on ablation products. A majority of the leading players in the ablation technology market pursue the strategies of geographic expansions as well as product development & commercialization. These strategies help market players to strengthen their R&D efforts as well as localize their manufacturing capabilities, expand their distribution networks, and penetrate into the fast-growing Asia-Pacific and Latin American markets (such as India, China, and Brazil). These strategies also enable market players to address the specific consumer demand for safe and effective ablation technologies across key markets such as the U.S., Germany, France, Japan, China, and India.

The global market is highly competitive owing to the presence of a number of large and small firms.
