Tumor ablation market was valued at USD 897.1 million by 2017, growing with 10.9% CAGR during the forecast period, 2018-2025.
Tumor ablation is a minimally invasive procedure which is majorly used to treat tumors present in kidney, liver, bone, and lungs. In tumor ablation, tissues are cooled or heated to less than -40°C or more than 60°C using thermal energy. The success rate of complete small liver cancer through this process is more than 85%. This treatment is a good option for those patients who failed during radiotherapy or chemotherapy.
The growing number of cancer patients worldwide support industry growth significantly. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), cancer has taken the life of 9.6 million people in 2018. Tumor ablation is quite effective in cases when the abnormal cell is not bigger than 3cms. This technology doesn’t have any side effect and the patient doesn’t require hospitalization. No large incisions are involved in tumor ablation which results in less recovery time.

Excellent growth has been observed in the global market owing to the increasing awareness regarding the benefits of tumor ablation devices over surgical and other conventional techniques. Geriatric population, rise in cancer cases, economical treatment options are some of the other factors to fuel the demand for this technology across the globe. It is anticipated that the tumor ablation market size will reach worth USD 2.10 billion by 2025 with a CAGR of 10.9%.
The market is classified into four types namely cryoablation, radiofrequency, microwave and other ablation technologies. Currently, the radiofrequency market is on the rise because of its targeted treatment without causing any damage to surrounding healthy cells. This product segment is accounted for over 35% revenue share of the overall market. Whereas microwave ablation category is anticipated to rise during the study period because of the rise in private funding for the development of this technology coupled with growing adoption by healthcare professionals. In addition, this product segment is gradually picking up the pace owing to the emergence of robot-assisted technique. The global demand for microwave ablation is expected to rise with a CAGR of 15.3% between 2017-2025.
Based on application, the industry is bifurcated as liver, breast, lung, prostate, and other types. In terms of market size, liver cancer is accounted for the highest revenue share of the global market. According to the American Institute of Cancer Research (AICR), there were over 840,000 new cases of liver cancer in 2018. Such an increasing disease rate is directing patients’ focus towards this new technique of ablation. On contrary, lung cancer is projected to grow with a strong growth rate in the coming years. The main reason for the growth of this application segment is the rising consumption of alcohol and cigarette.
