PALM BEACH, Florida, May 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Electrophysiology marketplace is: "set for explosive growth" says an industry publication. It stated: "In the world of cardiovascular devices, growth is generally created by sudden technological advancements that provide treatment to a previously untreated disease, or by slow, incremental advancements that allow access to more and more patients in a disease population. However, most of these markets eventually slow down and are restrained by the relatively static size of their population. This is why electrophysiology is so interesting. While currently relatively small at $4.6B this year, it is expected to consistently grow at an extremely high rate of 4.60% in the foreseeable future, leading to a market size of $5.8B in five years." It continued: "It has recently become of great interest in the medical devices field as advancements in technology have allowed doctors to more easily and effectively identify and ablate troublesome material. This has resulted in a huge spike in growth of electrophysiology treatments at the expense of pharmacological treatments.
Active healthcare stocks in news today include: BioSig Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:BSGM), Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX), Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE: BMY), Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), Celgene Corporation (NASDAQ: CELG).
Competition within this sphere will still remain intense, however, as competing technologies evolve to out-perform one another. Traditionally, electrophysiology catheters have used radiofrequency (RF) ablation techniques to ablate troublesome tissue. However, more recently cryoablative and laser ablation technologies have been developed that are easier or more effective for physicians to use. As such, the electrophysiology market is expected to remain a highly competitive and dynamic market for years to come. Also, a recent market research report from Grand View Research, said that it expects the Arrhythmia Monitoring Devices Market to be worth $8.41 billion by 2025 with a CAGR of 6.8%.
