Market Report Description

The Global Microwave Ablation Market size is expected to reach $696.6 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 14.1% CAGR during the forecast period.

Microwave ablation is one of the latest advances in the field of ablation technologies for tumors. This technique enables flexible approaches to treatment, such as laparoscopic, open surgical access, and percutaneous. Under this technique, the cancer is localized, and with the help of imaging guidance, a thin microwave antenna is inserted into the tumor directly. The microwave generator releases electromagnetic waves through the non-insulated part of the antenna.

The key benefit of microwave technology in comparison with the previously existing thermo ablative technologies such as radio frequency ablation are larger tumor ablation quantity, fewer ablation times required, enhanced convection profile, and higher intra-tumoral temperatures. As a result, microwave ablation technology has significant growth potential for treating secondary and primary liver diseases, renal & adrenal tumors, bone metastases, and lung malignancies. Though the microwave ablation technology is still developing, future developments & various clinical implementations are anticipated to enhance the care of patients with life-threatening diseases such as cancer.

Dielectric hysteresis is used in microwave ablation to produce heat, and the tissues are heated at a lethal temperature by the applied electromagnetic field, resulting in tissue destruction. Polar molecules such as H2O present in tissues are realigned with an oscillating electric field, thereby increasing the kinetic energy and the tissues’ temperature. Tissues having a high amount of water, such as the tissues present in tumors and solid organs, are majorly conducive to this heating technique.

The microwave energy radiates into the tissue by using an interstitial antenna that combines energy from the power source with the tissue. Direct heating occurs in a significant amount of tissues around the interstitial antenna because of the radiating nature of the antenna. The mechanism of heating in microwave ablation is different from that of radiofrequency ablation. The radiofrequency ablation produces heat through resistive heating when an electric current is passed through the ionic tissue medium.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The outspread of the novel coronavirus and the resulting lockdown has affected various industries. The microwave ablation market has also been slightly negatively impacted during the pandemic period. Most of the regulatory bodies all over the world identified that patients with cancer and other diseases are more at risk of getting infected with COVID-19 if compared to healthy ones. Due to this, the diagnosis, surgical procedures, and examinations were strictly restricted or postponed with the aim of protecting patients from COVID-19. As a result, the market growth declined for the initial few months but is expected to recover at a steady pace in the upcoming years.

Market Growth Factors

Rising demand for minimally or non-invasive procedures

The demand for minimally or non-invasive procedures is growing continuously to get benefits offered by such procedures compared to traditionally used methods. Some of such advantages include shorter hospital stays required., fewer complications, less risk of infection, less pain, quick recovery, and reduced post-operative care required. In addition, these procedures use advanced technologies to diagnose and treat various chronic diseases, such as cancer. These techniques also help surgeons collect tissues as are necessary for biopsy and proper staging research, which further enables them to plan for appropriate treatment of cancer.

Continue advancements in technologies

The healthcare industry is transforming at a steady pace with the advancements in digital healthcare technologies. Healthcare technologies require users to work hand in hand with technologies, and healthcare workers are required to embrace these developing healthcare technologies to exist in the market. One of the major contributors to the market growth is the growing size and number of investments in healthcare by the public as well as private sectors.

Market Restraining Factor

Complications associated with liver tumor ablation

Though ablation treatment is considered a safe technique for the treatment of unresectable hepatic tumors, there are a few complications associated with the technique. The physicians conducting ablation therapy for hepatic malignancies are required to be conscious regarding various possible risks. One of the significant risks associated with ablation therapy is the failure to develop quality standards for ablation complications and local recurrence after ablation. The patient who underwent the ablation therapy is at risk of developing hemorrhage.

End-user Outlook

By end-use, the microwave ablation market is divided into hospitals, research laboratories and ambulatory surgical centers. The research laboratories segment garnered a considerable revenue share in the microwave ablation market in 2021. The market is expanding as a result of growing clinical research linked to cancer and the use of ablation therapies. The research laboratories are still continuing the pre-clinical trials of microwave ablation technology in order to enhance the understanding of the effect of systems on different organs.
