Ablation Devices Market - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2014-2022

A brief overview of the Global Ablation Devices Market is provided in the report based on product scope and market status & outlook. The market is segmented on the basis of type, end-users/application, and geography.


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/10/2018 -- Ablation is a minimal invasive medical procedure to destroy the abnormal tissues. It is performed with the help of probes that can be inserted through the skin or by using catheters that can be inserted through an artery or energy beams to reach the area that needs to be treated. An imaging technique such as MRI or rotational angiography is used to guide the probes or catheters to the site during ablation.
The world ablation device market is estimated to grow from $3,047 million in 2015 to $6,658 million by 2022 at a CAGR of 11.7% from 2016 to 2022. This can be attributed to the increase in demand for minimal invasive surgeries and increase in the prevalence of patients with chronic illnesses. Other factors such as minimal damage and blood loss, and short duration are some of the factors that contribute towards the growth of this market. However, stringent government regulations and unstable reimbursement policies restrain the market growth.
