Developing healthcare systems and rising expenditure in healthcare is contributing to the market expansion. Rising geriatric population suffering from chronic diseases such as gastrointestinal disorders and cancer is leading to increase in number of endoscopic procedures. Furthermore, increasing demand for minimally invasive procedure and innovative endoscopy devices will boost the market revenue.

Several cases pertaining to inefficiency and safety of endoscopic devices have been reported in the recent years. For instance, according to a published report, in 2019, a product of the U.S. Endoscopy, Inc., an endoscopy device design and manufacturing company was recalled as the company received a notice by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). As a result, the company examined the implant and corrected it with respect to MHRA safety concerns on medical devices in order to reduce the incidences associated with endoscopy devices. Additionally, the FDA is establishing new guidelines for reprocessing reusable medical devices including endoscopes.

The outbreak of COVID-19 at a global level is unprecedented health concern and has impacted the endoscopy market size negatively. All endoscopic procedures such as upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and endoscopic ultrasound pose a risk of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 as they are aerosol generating procedures. Therefore, there was a decline in the number of endoscopic procedures performed owing to the decrease in patient volume, rescheduling and delaying of procedures.

Increasing geriatric population will drive the market demand

Growing geriatric population across the globe will majorly fuel the endoscopy market growth. Geriatric population is prone to suffer from chronic disorders such as gastrointestinal disorders, orthopaedic disorders, ophthalmic disorders, and other disorders. Also, immunological disorders are majorly prevalent in the geriatric population. According to a published report, the geriatric population is growing at a rate of 2.6% per year, worldwide. In addition, according to the statistics by the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 80% of the older people will be living in low and middle-income countries by the year 2050. Consequently, the incidence of chronic disorders among the elderly population is significantly increasing with continuous rise in geriatric population, augmenting the market revenue.

Gastrointestinal endoscopy such as endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), colonoscopy and esophagogastroduodenoscopy are safe and efficacious in elderly patients. These factors are augmenting the demand for technologically advanced endoscopic devices with expanded support for endoscopic screening and care at a rapid pace. Furthermore, the preference for minimally invasive procedure among the geriatric population is leading to the expansion of demand and supply of endoscopic products.

Growing demand for endoscopes will enhance the market size

Endoscopes segment value in 2020 was more than USD 12,400 million due to the increasing prevalence of diseases requiring endoscopic diagnosis. Endoscopes are witnessing massive demand owing to technological advancements in the endoscopes used for early detection of diseases such as cancer, infections, and malignancies.

Moreover, the demand for endoscopes is high because they are minimally invasive devices, have better ergonomics, safety, and efficacy. Increasing awareness pertaining to endoscopic procedures and availability of various types of endoscopes is driving the demand and supply of these devices. Furthermore, increasing focus of manufacturers on offering training for optimal use advanced flexible endoscopes will impel the market growth.

Hospitals segment size in the endoscopy market was around USD 15,580 million in 2020 attributed to the number of endoscopic procedures undertaken at hospitals. Hospitals are considered as one of the primary healthcare systems that leads to high inflow of the patients suffering from chronic disorders in hospitals. Favorable reimbursement scenario for various endoscopic procedures also contributes to the increased patient inflow in hospitals. Furthermore, presence of skilled healthcare professionals is another factor augmenting the demand for endoscopic devices in hospitals.

Prevalence of ENT disorders will propel the market expansion

ENT endoscopy segment revenue crossed USD 3,610 million in 2020 led by the rising prevalence of conditions pertaining to the throat, ear, and nose such as rhinosinusitis, nasal polyps, ear infections, hearing impairment, ear pain, swallowing disorders and throat cancer.

According to a study by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), chronic otitis media is one of the leading causes of conductive hearing loss globally and affects around 330 million people worldwide. In addition, as per the statistics by the World Allergy Organization (WHO), prevalence of chronic rhinosinusitis ranges from 12% in the U.S., 11% in Europe, 8.4% in Korea to 8% in China. Therefore, a large patient population base is undergoing ENT endoscopy is augmenting the demand for endoscopes. Furthermore, patients in pediatric population and geriatric population are prone to ENT disorders and increasing prevalence of these populations is uplifting the demand for ENT endoscopes.
