The Japan EP mapping and ablation device market will experience moderate growth through 2029, due to favorable reimbursement for ablation procedures, increasing AF ablation procedure volumes, and the uptake of premium-priced devices. However, the COVID-19 global pandemic will have a slight impact on the Japan EP mapping and ablation device market, resulting in lost procedure volumes in the short term followed by a period of recovery.
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.
