Reflux Testing Devices Market Size

Reflux Testing Devices Market was valued at USD 3.2 billion in 2022 and is estimated to account for USD 5 billion by 2032 driven by the increasing prevalence of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Lifestyle changes, dietary habits, and an aging population base have contributed to the rising number of individuals experiencing GERD-related symptoms, such as heartburn and regurgitation. As awareness of the potential complications of untreated GERD grows among patients and healthcare providers, there is a heightened demand for accurate diagnostic tools and monitoring devices.

Reflux Testing Devices Market

The growing elderly population base suffering from GERD is a major factor stimulating the demand for reflux testing devices. For instance, nearly 11 million people, or 19% of the population, are over the age of 65 today. In another ten years, this is going to grow to roughly 13 million people, or 22% of the population. Such rise in geriatric population base will increase the demand for reflux testing and monitoring. Older people are more likely to have GERD, which, if unaddressed, can cause serious consequences. In addition, due to age-related changes in the digestive tract, number of individuals are at risk for developing GERD with time that has been observed in the global elderly population. As a result, there is an increasing demand for precise diagnostic instruments and monitoring systems to evaluate the severity of GERD and direct individualized treatment regimens.


COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the reflux testing devices market leading to reduced demand due to lockdown, restrictions, and consumer spending constraints. Non-emergency medical operations and elective surgeries were delayed or cancelled during the peak of the epidemic in order to lower the risk of viral transmission. As a result, there was a brief decline in the demand for reflux testing equipment. COVID-19 primarily affected the respiratory system, and healthcare systems around the world directed significant resources towards respiratory disease testing. This shift in focus may have temporarily diverted attention and resources away from gastrointestinal disorders such as GERD, impacting the demand for reflux testing.

Reflux Testing Devices Market Trends

GERD is no longer a rare affliction; it is a widespread condition affecting a substantial portion of the population. In the U.S. alone, GERD is estimated to affect over 20% of adults regularly, with millions experiencing symptoms intermittently. Globally, GERD’s prevalence is on the rise and is one of the driving forces behind the surge in GERD diagnosis. For instance, a study published in the Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology found that 63% of respondents were familiar with GERD symptoms, indicating improved public awareness.

Furthermore, people are more informed than ever about GERD’s signs and symptoms, through an abundance of information available online and through healthcare providers. Public health campaigns, medical literature, and online resources have made it easier for individuals to recognize the signs of GERD, such as heartburn, regurgitation, and persistent coughing, leading to a proactive approach in seeking medical evaluation.
