The Japan EP mapping and ablation device market will experience moderate growth through 2027, due to favorable reimbursement for ablation procedures, increasing AF ablation procedure volumes, and the uptake of premium-priced devices.

This Medtech 360 Report provides comprehensive data and analysis on the current state of the market for EP mapping and ablation devices in Japan across a 10-year period.


AF continues to be a focus among electrophysiologists.

How will the results of the CABANA and CASTLE-AF trials affect AF procedure growth?

How fast are AF treatment volumes changing, and how does AF treatment volume growth compare to other arrhythmia types?

How are manufacturers incorporating novel technologies specifically for AF treatment into their competitive strategies?

The EP diagnostic and ablation catheter segments account for significant market revenues.

How do the EP lab system and catheter markets compare?

What are the changing catheter preferences among electrophysiologists?

In which markets do competitors benefit most directly from growth trends?

Several novel technologies are present in the Japanese market, particularly balloon ablation catheters.

Which advanced technologies are available in the Japanese EP mapping and ablation device market?

Which of these novel devices have seen the fastest adoption, and why? How will their uptake change in the next 10 years?

Which devices are losing ground to these newer, more technologically advanced tools?

ASPs for EP devices are influenced by biennial reimbursement cuts by the Japanese MHLW.

Which device segments will be most affected by these cuts?

Are there specific brands that are exempt from these cuts? Why are they exempt?
