Demand Analysis of Endoscopes from 2015 to 2021 Vs Market Projections for 2022 to 2032

According to Fact.MR- market research and competitive intelligence provider- demand for endoscopes surged at a CAGR of 9% from 2015 to 2021. Rising preference for minimally invasive surgical procedures to reduce patient trauma has proven to be a significant growth accelerator throughout the historical period.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, endoscope market demand underwent multiple fluctuations. At the onset of the disease, there was a significant shortage, attributed to the imposition of stringent lockdowns to curb the spread of the virus. Production shortfalls amid factory shutdowns led to a demand supply disequilibrium. Eventually, however, prospects appeared optimistic, given the rising need to scan infected patients and suggest appropriate treatment.

In the future, favourable reimbursement policies provided by healthcare sectors along with increasing FDA approvals for endoscopic devices are expected to escalate the demand for endoscopes. Thus, the sales of endoscopes are expected to exceed US$ 34 Billion by registering a CAGR of 10% in the forecast period 2022-2032.

Gastrointestinal Disorders Creating Lucrative Opportunities for Endoscope Manufacturers?

Endoscopic procedures are being largely used to diagnose and treat functional gastrointestinal disorders. As functional gastrointestinal disorders have the ability to affect the gastrointestinal tract, including the stomach, oesophagus, and intestines, the demand for treatments have grown. This, in turn, is increasing the sales of endoscopes.

In addition, increasing prevalence of functional gastrointestinal disorders, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), functional dyspepsia and functional constipation is expected to accelerate the adoption of endoscopy devices. Thus, the aforementioned factors are leveraging the use of endoscopes on a large scale. Due to this, the demand for endoscopes is expected to grow.
