Ablation technologies are the techniques involving removal of any material from an object’s surface generally by chipping, vaporization or an erosive process. Ablation technologies find a large number of applications in healthcare and medical industry. In medical industry, ablation technologies refer to the removal of body tissues surgically. In most cases, ablation is done especially for cardiac ailments and generally involves removal of small areas of heart causing heart rhythm problems.

Ablation technologies can be either thermal or non-thermal. Thermal ablation includes ultrasound, radiofrequency, electrical, hydrothermal, microwave etc. whereas non-thermal ablation includes cryoablation technology. Cardiac ablation involves measurement of heart’s electrical activities using small wires or electrodes placed inside the heart. When the source of issue is diagnosed, the tissue causing complications is destroyed. Cardiac ablation is done through two major methods namely cryoablation and radiofrequency ablation. Cryoablation involves surgical ablation that comprises culling into the chest and making smaller incisions whereas radiofrequency ablation involves the insertion of a flexible tube into a blood vessel, generally leg or neck. The principal advantages of ablation procedures over open surgeries include minimal invasion, lesser blood loss, short recovery time, low risk of infection and shorter hospital stays. Ablation technologies find vast applications such as cardiac, urology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, cancer and gynecology.

Some of the key factors and benefits driving the growth of ablation technology market include:

  • Minimum invasion hence lesser blood loss and less possibility of critical complications
  • Reduces the overall post-recovery time along with the reduction in complications
  • The surgeries of removal of dead tissues has become more efficient and accurate, which results in an improved success rate
  • Rising incidences of chronic diseases including cardiac ailments and cancer
  • Advancements in technology especially in the design of high-end procedures as well as rising demand for minimally invasive procedures
  • Increasing count of aging population suffering from high risk of vital diseases coupled with increasing government initiatives to impose control on overall healthcare costs and safety

However, older healthcare reforms by healthcare departments and product recalls from various companies are some key factors hindering the growth of the global ablation technologies market. Also, reprocessing and reuse of ablation products as well as healthcare cost containment measures coupled with rising trend of bulk purchasing especially by integrated health networks and group purchasing organizations are some key factors intensifying the price pressure on key players, thus limiting the overall growth of the global ablation technologies market.
