Improperly reprocessed endoscopes lead to the occurrence of bacterial infections, which are associated with endoscopes. Growing concerns of technicians and physicians about patient’s safety is expected to propel automated endoscope reprocessors market growth.
Rising awareness regarding the use of automated endoscope reprocessors for securement of exogenous and endogenous infections associated with flexible endoscopy is expected to fuel overall demand for automated endoscope reprocessors systems, globally.
Moreover, Food and Drug Association (FDA), SGNA (Society for Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates, Inc.), and ASGE (American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy) examiners bolster expanded research in the endoscope design and urge makers to create adaptable gastrointestinal endoscopes that can be effortlessly dismantled during reprocessing assuring effective cleaning and sterilization.
Growing popularity of single shot automated endoscope reprocessors models incorporating the use of single shot high level disinfectants is driving the growth of automated endoscope reprocessors globally.
Endoscope reprocessing with single shot disinfectants allows effective and efficient cleaning of contaminated endoscopes as opposed to the multi-use or reusable endoscope disinfectants. Thus, eliminating the chances of cross contamination.
A growing number of automated endoscope reprocessors manufacturers are thus focusing on developing single shot automated endoscope reprocessors models, to deliver high end services to several healthcare facilities across the globe. This has led to the overall growth of the automated endoscope reprocessors market.

Transition from Manual to Automatic Cleaning Driving Sales of Automated Endoscope Reprocessors
Introduction of automated endoscope reprocessors systems in the market demonstrates a huge success in the endoscope business. Manual endoscope cleaning procedures are often tedious, time consuming and inefficient, leading to improper endoscope reprocessing.
As a result, a number of automated endoscope reprocessors manufactures are seeking out more effective alternatives for decontamination of endoscopes. One such effective technology is the use of automated endoscope reprocessors systems.
European Society of Gastroenterology and Endoscopy Nurses and Associates (ESGNA) and SGNA strongly recommend the use of automated endoscopes disinfectors to achieve high level of cleaning and disinfection. Several advantages of endoscope reprocessing with automated endoscope reprocessors over manual reprocessing include high level of standardization in reprocessing, low risk of infection in either patients or staff. Thus, the increasing adoption of automated endoscope reprocessors is anticipated to drive the growth of this market over the forecast period.

Delayed Reprocessing and Lack of Clarity of Instructions Continue to Hamper the Market Growth
Current endoscope reprocessing guidelines recommend reprocessing of contaminated endoscopes immediately after their application/use after a surgical procedure. However, in recent years, growing concerns of delayed or improper endoscope reprocessing in several countries are associated with increased chances of infection and disease transmission.
Also, inadequate adherence to reprocessing instructions by automated endoscope reprocessors and endoscope manufacturers and several individual factors including, lack of technical expertise pertaining to use of automated endoscope reprocessors, inadequate utilization of disinfectants, and use of repaired or refurbished devices using out-of-specification parts could also affect the sales prospects of automated endoscope reprocessors.
