Market Overview

The growing prevalence of chronic esophageal disorders and raising R&D activities are the major factors that are boosting the growth of the esophageal catheters market globally. Additionally, increasing healthcare awareness, growing surgical procedures number and growing demand for minimally invasive surgeries are also fostering the increase in esophageal catheters market growth. Furthermore, technological advancements and growing elderly populace as they are more prone to many chronic diseases are anticipated to upsurge the growth of esophageal catheters market globally. For instance, In 2016, Medtronic launched a new Barrx 360 Express radiofrequency ablation (RFA) balloon catheter, which can help in the treatment of Barrett’s esophagus. However, stringent regulatory approvals, poor availability of esophageal catheters in emerging nations and the high cost of the devices are expected to hamper the esophageal catheters market growth globally.
