As the risk of atrial fibrillation increases with age, the growing number of aged individuals worldwide will generate a greater demand for atrial fibrillation devices and treatments, says TMR’s report. Moreover, TMR analysts reckon that the growing prevalence of chronic disorders, including hypertension and diabetes, will lead to a growth in the number of people suffering from atrial fibrillation. All of these factors will put the global atrial fibrillation market firmly on the growth course. However, companies in the global atrial fibrillation market will have to brave headwinds in the form of strict approval processes before a treatment or product can be brought to the market and close monitoring of the market by regulatory agencies.

The report on the global atrial fibrillation market segments the market on the basis of type into: pharmacological treatment and non-pharmacological treatment. The pharmacological treatment segment is sub-segmented into anti-arrhythmic drugs and anti-coagulant drugs. Likewise, the non-pharmacological treatment market has been divided into: maze surgery, catheter ablation, and electric cardioversion.

The global market for atrial fibrillation was dominated by the pharmacological treatment segment as of 2012. There are several reasons that support the estimations that this segment held the largest share in the atrial fibrillation market in that year.

The key reason is that drugs are more frequently consumed by patients suffering from AF while fewer patients undergo non-pharmacological treatments. Even in instances where patients undergo non-pharmacological intervention to treat AF, pharmacological treatments are administered during convalescence or as a follow-up. It is also important to consider the point that pharmacological treatments are more affordable than non-pharmacological ones. The report states that by 2019, the share of pharmacological treatments in the global atrial fibrillation market will rise to approximately 55% boosted by the launch of new anti-coagulants

On the basis of geography, the key segments of the market are: Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World.
