MediPoint: Electrophysiology - Global Analysis and Market Forecasts


Still in its infancy, the electrophysiology (EP) device market has seen significant adoption and market growth as more physicians become experienced in diagnostic and ablation techniques, increasing numbers of hospitals purchase supportive equipment, device prices fall, and efficacy improves. This continued growth is also driven by technological advancements, including the emergence of next-generation ablation technologies, improvements in catheter diagnostics, and advancements in lab systems. Further, as imaging modalities improve, patients are exposed to less radiation than ever before, which will only further drive diagnostics. Still years behind the US, growth in emerging markets is also expected to drive sales, as developing countries look to implement new EP programs and hospitals adopt ablation techniques. Increases in the prevalence of arrhythmia, combined with improved diagnostics and patient awareness, are expected to support industry expansion. Lastly, published studies, clinical evidence and patient awareness will all contribute positively to EP market growth, and will provide further evidence of the effectiveness of catheter ablation.

The EP market is dominated by several key players, including Biosense Webster, St. Jude Medical, Boston Scientific, Medtronic and Biotronik, with the biggest markets in the US and EU. With improvements in reimbursement worldwide, as well as advancements of global distribution channels, devices are being sold in more hospitals than ever, and this is only expected to increase. With only a few key players in the market currently, competition remains high, as industry leaders fight for valuable market share.
