“Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT) Dominated the Application Segment in 2018”
Based on application, the market can be segmented into atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), ventricular tachycardia and others. Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT) dominated the application segment in the electrophysiology devices market in 2018. According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, the incidence of supraventricular tachycardia among general population was estimated to be around 35 cases per 100,000 population globally. The condition is potentially life-threatening if left untreated, and accounts for an estimated 300,000 deaths each year. The increasing incidence of the condition, along with superiority of catheter ablation procedure in the treatment of the condition, has fueled the demand for electrophysiology devices in the global market. These factors have propelled the growth of the segment in the global market in 2018.
According to the European Society of Cardiology, 7.6 million people over age 65 in Europe were suffering from atrial fibrillation in 2016 and anticipated to increase by 89.0% to 14.4 million by 2060. The rising prevalence of atrial fibrillation is expected to propel the demand for the electrophysiology devices and hence propelling the growth of the segment.
“Hospital & ASC’s Segment held the Highest Share in 2018.”
Based on end user, the electrophysiology devices market is segmented to hospitals & ASCs, and specialty clinics & diagnostic centers. The hospitals & ASC’s segment holds a substantial share and is anticipate to grow at a relatively significant CAGR during the forecast period.
