Disposable Endoscope Market Trends



  • Increasing demand for single use endoscopes is driving the market growth


One of the main factors propelling the global market is the increasing demand for single use endoscopes to reduce the risk of infection connected to the device. Additionally, the market is being further stimulated by increased patient desire for less invasive procedures, a supportive regulatory environment, and advantageous reimbursement policies in developed nations. Additionally, the market has benefited from lucrative growth possibilities because to the rising investments, money, and grants made by governments and other organisations to advance endoscopic research and healthcare infrastructure.

The global market is being driven by the growing use of minimally invasive procedures due to its numerous advantages, including high patient acceptance rates, less pain, cost effectiveness, and a lower risk of consequences. For instance, ambulatory minimally invasive operations are on the rise in the United States, according to NIH data from January 2023. In addition, the need for single-use endoscopic equipment for ENT, bronchoscopy, and dental procedures is expected to expand in the future years across hospitals, diagnostic centres, and other settings.


Additionally, the prevalence of gastrointestinal illnesses such functional dyspepsia and IBS is predicted to rise, along with the use of endoscopic treatments to identify GI problems. For instance, a global study published in the Gastroenterology journal in 2021 found that more than 40% of people globally suffer from functional gastrointestinal diseases. As a result, the prevalence of GI disorders is driving manufacturers to release innovative endoscopic equipment on the market. For instance, Ambu reported in February 2022 that Ambu aScope Gastro and Ambu aBox 2 had received U.S. FDA certification. The company's position in the GI market was bolstered by this clearance.


The market for disposable endoscopes is expected to continue growing as a result of increased hospital investments in endoscopy facilities, increasing endoscopic demand due to the prevalence of target diseases, and endoscopy technology advances. The minimal cost of maintenance, cleaning, and storage of the single-use endoscopes, among other benefits offered by this type of endoscopes, are increasing consumer demand for the product. Additionally, the growing concern of regulatory agencies for patient safety has aided in improving the quality of disposable endoscopes, reducing the number of infections. This situation has been beneficial for the expansion of the sector. Additionally, it is projected that rising target disease prevalence will fuel product demand.


One of the most important factors contributing to the market's expansion is the rise in hospital-acquired infections (HAI) caused by the use of infected endoscopes. Increased regulatory authority sanctions are another factor that will encourage the selling of disposable endoscopes. For instance, the FDA recently approved new disposable endoscopes that provide sterile endoscopic treatment and were produced by the Invendo medical company, which Ambu bought. In contrast, higher disposable endoscope pricing in the coming years will somewhat restrain the market's expansion. Additionally, market participants are spending money on the creation of cheaper, safer medical instruments including disposable gastroscopes, disposable bronchoscopes, and disposable arthroscopes. Additionally, numerous product launches and approvals are accelerating market adoption. For instance, Integrated Endoscopy introduced a second-generation NUVIS disposable arthroscope in November 2022. The recently released arthroscope is the first 4K endoscope of its kind created for use in arthroscopic surgical operations. Thus, driving the Disposable Endoscope market revenue.
