Market CAGR for esophageal dysphagia is driven by the rising number of smokers. The growing number of smokers is expected to impact the market's expansion during the projected time. Dysphagia is one of the most severe side effects of long-term cigarette smoking.  For instance, the World Health Organisation (WHO), a  public health organization headquartered in Switzerland, estimates that by May 2022, tobacco will be a factor in more than 8 million deaths annually. More than 7 million fatalities are due to direct tobacco use, whereas around 1.2 million are from non-smokers exposed to secondhand smoke.  While smoking causes the deaths of almost 6 million people annually, the market for esophageal dysphagia is steadily growing because of the increasing incidence of oropharyngeal cancer.

The primary factor influencing the growth rate of the esophageal dysphagia market is the rise in healthcare spending, which aids in constructing its infrastructure. The market for esophageal dysphagia will expand due to increased awareness-raising efforts by public and private organizations. the rising need for dysphagia management in healthcare services and medical institutions, and the increase in disposable money. One of the major elements driving the  market is the growing number of smokers who will develop addictions throughout the forecast period. The rising prevalence of dysphagia, particularly among older people, drives the demand for esophageal dysphagia. The market is expanding because of the development of cutting-edge dysphagia management techniques such as video fluoroscopy systems, neuromuscular electrical stimulation devices, and fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) systems. Thus, driving the esophageal dysphagia market revenue.
