Owing to its apparent lucrativeness, a number of companies functioning in the healthcare industry have thrown their hat into the market for EP catheter ablation, making the value-chain-landscape fairly fragmented and intensely competitive. The report identifies Medtronic Plc., Boston Scientific Corporation, Abbott Laboratories Inc., Johnson & Johnson, BIOTRONIK SE & Co. KG, Lepu Medical Tech Co. Ltd., MicroPort Scientific Corporation, CardioFocus Inc., and Hansen Medical, Inc. as some of the key companies in the global ET catheter ablation market. Most of these companies are well established with strong geographical presence and financial might. In the near future, these companies are expected to focus on the development of advanced devices that can provide convenient diagnosis.
While Biosense Webster, which is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, dominates in the cardiac ablation market as it is a major supplier of diagnostic electrophysiology catheters, and is ahead of the curve as far as localization capabilities are concerned. In the same segment, Boston Scientific is not far behind either with its Ultra ICE catheter and Blazer II RF ablation catheter products. St. Jude Medical has also expanded its outreach by acquiring Irvine Biomedical and EP Medsystems.
Over the course of the forecast period, 2017–2026, the analysts of the report have anticipated that the number of ablation procedures will increase as a result of approval of new diagnostic EP catheters that can incorporate localization or mapping capabilities. In addition to that, innovations pertaining to wireless and software-based diagnosis procedures are also expected carve a niche for the market players.
