The Japanese EP mapping and ablation device market will expand moderately through 2025, largely as a result of rising ablation volumes. Several new products have become commercially available in Japan in recent years, shifting the clinical and competitive landscape of EP practice in the country.

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

What are the factors driving growth in AF treatment volumes?

How will procedural growth influence device use?

The expanding EP diagnostic and ablation catheter segments remain fairly dynamic.

What is driving growth in the EP catheter markets?

Which competitors benefit most directly from growth trends? What strategies are they using to capture market share?

Several novel technologies have recently entered the Japanese market.

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?
