The branch of physiology that deals with the study of electrical properties of biological cell and tissue is known as Electrophysiology. The study includes the production of electrical activity and their effect on the human body. The abnormal electrical properties of cells and tissues lead to some diseases, which can be treated with the help of electrophysiology devices. The report critically analyzes the key products available in the market and the products that are under development. The top factors influencing the market have been strategically dealt, which provides assistance to decision-making. The increase in cardiovascular diseases, Cardiac Arrhythmias and Myocardial Diseases/Disorders are some the key factor affecting the market. These factors would help the decision makers to understand the potential opportunity present in the electrophysiology device market.
The rising prevalence of diseases such as ophthalmic disorders, cardiac arrhythmias and epilepsy requires electrophysiology devices for pre-procedural assessments, detection of complication and follow-up of patients. These are acting as the driving factors for the growth of electrophysiology devices market. The increasing occurrence of Atrial Fibrillation is expected to drive the growth of electrophysiology device market in the near future. Catheters segment holds a major share in the electrophysiology device market. However, the availability of alternative treatments, the high cost associated with the devices and strict regulations for the use of electrophysiology devices might affect the growth of electrophysiology device market.
Electrophysiology Devices Market Analysis Types
The electrophysiology device market is divided into two major segments such as Electrophysiology Monitoring Devices and Electrophysiology Treatment Devices. The electrophysiology monitoring device segment includes electrocardiograph (ECG), Electromyograph (EMG), Electrocephaloghaph (ECoG), Holter Monitoring Device, X-ray system, remote steering system and 3D mapping System. Currently, ECG devices are dominating the electrophysiology device market. These devices are available in differentiated forms that satisfy the need of home health care and point of care diagnostics; whereas, the X-ray devices market and 3D mapping system market are expected to grow in the near future. The Electrophysiology Treatment Market includes catheters, Pacemaker, Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICD’s) and Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Devices (CRT). In case of electrophysiology treatment device market, catheters segment alone holds 50% of the market share.
