The global cardiac ablation market is estimated to garner a revenue of ~USD 5 Billion by the end of 2035 by growing at a CAGR of ~13% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. Further, the market generated a revenue of ~USD 3 Billion in the year 2022. The growth of the market can be attributed to growing consumption of alcohol, tobacco and substance abuse which is further boosting the prevalence for cardiac ailments. According to a new brief released by the World Health Organization, the World Heart Federation, and the University of Newcastle Australia ahead of World Heart Day, which is observed on September 29, 1.9 million people per year pass away from tobacco-induced heart disease.

Smoking and the consumption of any other substances greatly affect the functioning of the heart, along with all other body parts. According to the FDA, the poisonous mixture of more than 7,000 chemicals in cigarette smoke could interfere with vital bodily functions when it is inhaled, causing serious health problems. Getting oxygen-rich blood to the heart and the rest of the body is one of processes of inhaling.  When a person breathes, the lungs receive oxygen and send it to the heart, which then circulates this blood throughout the rest of the body via the blood arteries. In addition, when people inhale cigarette smoke, the blood that is circulated to the rest of the body picks up the compounds in the smoke. These substances could harm the blood vessels and heart, which could result in cardiovascular disease (CVD) or other heart disease.

Out of which, the radiofrequency segment is anticipated to garner the highest revenue by the end of 2035. The growth of the market can be attributed to the growing number of cardiovascular diseases all around the globe. According to the World Health Organization, the main cause of death worldwide is cardiovascular disease (CVD). In 2019, 32% of all fatalities worldwide were attributable to CVDs, killing an estimated 17.9 million individuals. Heart attacks and strokes were to blame for 85% of these deaths. Radiofrequency has been used to create percutaneous left heart access and has been proven effective at reanalyzing the central and peripheral arteries. Moreover, it is known to be safe and effective in treating heart disease. Moreover, the ultrasound segment is anticipated to grow significantly over the forecast period, backed by growing demand for ultrasound devices.

The global cardiac ablation market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into cardiac arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation, tachycardia, and open surgery. Amongst these segments, the atrial fibrillation segment is anticipated to grow significantly over the forecast period, backed by its growing frequency. Moreover, the growing consumption of alcohol and smoking is also estimated to boost the frequency of atrial fibrillation. Additionally, growing intake of caffeine is also anticipated to drive the growth of the segment in the market. Also, atrial fibrillation risk is higher in people with specific chronic illnesses such as diabetes, metabolic syndrome, chronic renal disease, lung disease, or sleep apnea. Blood could build up and form clots in the upper chambers of the heart (atria) as a result of the disorderly cardiac rhythm in atrial fibrillation. A stroke may result from a blood clot in the left atrium of the heart that escapes and travels to the brain. As a person ages, the risk of stroke from atrial fibrillation increases. Hence, the treatment for atrial fibrillation is necessary. Further, this is estimated to boost the demand for effective cardiac rhythm management. Therefore, owing to the growth in this segment, the market is expected to grow further.
