Electrophysiology Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The size of the global electrophysiology market is projected to be worth USD 14.39 billion by 2028 and USD 9.02 billion in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 9.79% from 2023 to 2028.


The increasing prevalence of heart arrhythmias, ophthalmic issues, and epilepsy propel the growth of the global electrophysiology market.

Over the forecast period, the worldwide electrophysiology market is further projected to be boosted by introducing new technologies such as cryoablation, laser ablation, ultrasonic ablation, and enhanced mapping technologies. The market is also propelled by the rising prevalence of heart failure (HF) and cardiac arrest cases among millennials related to lifestyle choices such as smoking and excessive alcohol use. In addition, tSmaller EP monitsmallerstems have increased demand for these devices in the global electrophysiology market, particularly during the COVID-19 period. As a result, the cardiac rhythm and failure divisions are paying close attention to remote monitoring and the programming capabilities of implanted electrophysiology (EP) devices.

The market participants emphasize developing advanced products, which is expected to improve the industry's growth potential. As a result of the rising illness burden worldwide and the acceptance of development activities by organizations, the electrophysiology market is expected to expand in the future. Emerging markets are expected to offer significant growth opportunities for cardiac mapping systems players due to their growing patient population, increasing adoption of cardiac mapping systems, increasing awareness of CVDs, rising disposable incomes, improving healthcare infrastructure, and relatively lenient guidelines compared to developed countries. In addition, growth in atrial fibrillation and the baby boomer generation's elevated risk of targeted illnesses and increased use of EP catheter ablation are driving the market. The market's growth is fueled by major companies' increased focus on new EP technologies and the expansion of EP laboratories. Electrophysiology equipment with several modalities, such as cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR), cardiac computed tomography (CT), echocardiography, fluoroscopy, and electro-anatomic mapping, let healthcare practitioners assess the leading causes of multiple arrhythmia cases quickly. As the prevalence of cardiac arrhythmia continues to rise, electrophysiological devices are expected to gain much traction in the future years.


However, government regulations, the high expense of treating complex arrhythmias, the preference for pharmacological therapies (drugs) over electrophysiological interventions, and a scarcity of qualified and experienced electrophysiologists are expected to restrict the global electrophysiology market expansion. Additionally, the scarcity of trained experts and tight regulatory rules are further expected to hamper the growth rate of the electrophysiology market. High installation costs and a lack of awareness are considerable challenges to the worldwide electrophysiology market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global electrophysiology market:

The coronavirus pandemic's effect and the resulting lockdown can be seen in various industries, including electrophysiology. However, implementing new rules and regulations is suppressing the industry's progress. Furthermore, restricted access to hospitals, social alienation, and community lockdown, which result in a slowdown of patient flow and referrals, have affected the market growth. However, post the lockdown restrictions, there is an increase in the demand for the electrophysiology market.

  • Access Devices

Based on the product, the Electrophysiology Ablation Catheters segment is anticipated to account for the largest share of the market in the product type. Ablation catheters eliminate abnormal heart tissues that can result in irregular heartbeats. Such machines work based on ablation, a minimally invasive technique that uses catheters to destroy the heart's damaged electrical pathways.

Ablation is a minimally invasive procedure that destroys abnormal heart tissues that cause irregular heart rhythms. Radiofrequency, microwave ablation, and laser are also part of ablation catheters. It is a safe procedure with less risk associated with treating abnormal cardiac tissue cases. Ablation catheters are the most widely used devices and are expected to register a significant market share with technology advancements. It accounted for the substantial market size in 2019 of the total electrophysiology market. Collectively, diagnostic catheters also emerged as the largest segment in ep. The increased use of this device in the introduction of portable and digital systems.

Electrophysiology Market – By Indication: 

  • Atrial Flutter 
  • Atrial Fibrillation 
  • Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome
  • Atrioventricular Nodal Re-entry Tachycardia 
  • Other Indications

Based on indication, the segment of Atrial Fibrillation has been leading the market. It is expected to show the highest revenue growth during the forecast period as Atrial fibrillation monitoring requires enhanced diagnostic technology to overcome the limitations imposed by conventional techniques.

The atrial fibrillation segment accounted for the larger share in 2019. The developing number of ablation systems identified with atrial fibrillation, fast development in the aging population across the globe, expanding pervasiveness of atrial fibrillation, and the improvement of cutting-edge electrophysiology items for early conclusion of atrial fibrillation are required to drive the development of this market fragment in the coming years.
