Global Microwave Ablation Market: By Product Types (Generators/Electrosurgical Units and Consumables) - Drivers, Opportunities, Restraints, and Forecasts: 2017–2023


Microwave ablation refers to the surgical removal of a body tissue by transferring heat to the target tissue. The process is used to remove a tiny or large quantity of tissue. A specially equipped needle is inserted near the site with image-guided modalities such as computed tomography, ultrasonography, and magnetic resonance imaging. The needle is subjected to various form of electrical tests depending on the type of technology used. This is a form of thermal ablation with energy spectrum of 300 MHz to 300 GHz used to produce tissue-heating effects. The increasing demand for energy-based ablation devices has increased the demand for microwave ablation procedures across the globe. The market is driven by several factors that contribute to the business growth globally.

The rise in awareness about minimally invasive surgeries or procedures has created a high adoption as it is less painful, performed as an outpatient procedure, and unlike traditional open surgeries they are less expensive. Minimally invasive surgeries are emerging as potential replacements for conventional therapeutic cancer surgeries for the treatment of various tumors of the prostate gland, lungs, and liver. Further, robotic navigation technologies that perform microwave ablation procedures more accurately are being incorporated to increase the popularity of these surgeries. The cost of microwave tissue ablation treatment is directly proportional to the size of the tissue/tumor and the number of probes required for the surgery.

The major products in the market include:

  • Solero MTA System

  • NEUWAVE Microwave Ablation System

  • Evident MW Ablation System

  • AveCure Microwave System

  • MicroThermX Devices

The market is dominated by Medtronic, AngioDynamics, NeuWave Medical (now Johnson & Johnson), MedWaves, and Perseon which has more than 75% market share in the Global Microwave Ablation Devices market. Factors, such as the increased prevalence of chronic disorders, growing popularity about minimally invasive surgeries, focus on early prevention, and the increase in disposable income, are driving the market growth.

Market Analysis:

The Global Microwave Ablation Devices Market is estimated to witness a CAGR of 14.8% during the forecast period 2017–2023. The market is analyzed based on three segments, namely product type, end-users, and regions.

Regional Analysis:

The regions covered in the report are North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World (ROW). The Americas is set to be the leading region for the microwave ablation devices market growth followed by Europe. Asia Pacific and ROW are set to be the emerging regions. The emerging markets have a high potential to grow owing to an increase in the number of microwave ablation procedures due to the rise in disposable income, presence of a large pool of chronic patient population, and focus toward healthcare infrastructure. However, the high cost of devices and expensive procedural cost, lack of skilled electrophysiologist, lack of proper reimbursement policies, lack of awareness about advanced ablation devices in developing countries have a significant impact on the overall market growth.

Product Analysis:

Consumables are the fastest growing segment and dominates the global ablation market with 65% of the total market. Cardiac arrhythmias are the most popular ablation treatment followed by cancer ablation methods in all the ablation types. The increase in the prevalence of chronic disorders and growing number of microwave ablation procedures are expected to drive the consumables market during the forecast period. The generator/electrosurgical unit segment is growing at a steady growth rate and is expected to see a significant growth in the emerging markets.

Key Players:

Medtronic, AngioDynamics, NeuWave Medical (now Johnson & Johnson), MedWaves, Perseon, and other predominate & niche players.

Competitive Analysis:

The Global Microwave Ablation Devices market is growing faster and has immense growth opportunities for vendors, especially in the developed regions. The presence of large, small, and local vendors in the market possess high competition. The vendors have a strong focus on acquiring smaller companies and expanding their business operations by leveraging their products portfolio across the globe. The competitive environment in the market will intensify further with an increase in product/service extensions, product innovations, and M&A. They form strategic alliances for the marketing or manufacturing of microwave ablation devices.
