Endoscope camera heads include a medical diagnosis that utilizes endoscopes to penetrate and view inaccessible body cavities by using minimally invasive surgical procedures. Endoscope camera heads are generally used for collecting HD image data in an easy and compact way. Endoscope camera heads are small and lightweight for ease of use by medical professionals. Endoscope camera heads are connected by cable to a camera control unit (CCU) where video monitoring is done at a remote location. Camera control units which generally contains the majority of the electronic circuitry required to process video images which are usually not sterilized and are permanently wall-mounted or placed in carts. Endoscope camera heads are sterilized prior to each use as endoscopes and endoscope camera heads enter the sterile field during a surgical procedure. Video system function command signals, timing signals, and camera head supply voltages are all generated in the CCU for transmission to the endoscope camera heads. For this reason, new or differing endoscope camera heads cannot be utilized for different timing signals.
The endoscope camera heads market is majorly driven by the growing demand for minimally invasive surgical procedures due to the increasing preference amongst the general population. Endoscopy procedures are low-risk procedures with minimum blood loss which increases the demand for endoscope camera heads and further contributes to driving the growth of the global endoscope camera heads market. Furthermore, technological advancements and rising chronic disease prevalence further drive the growth of the global endoscope camera heads market. These factors are expected to propel the growth of the global endoscope camera heads market. However, high treatment cost reduces the adoption and hampers the growth of the global endoscope camera heads market.
The global market for transportation splint is segmented on basis of product type, sensors, end user and geography.
The endoscope camera heads are light-weight and waterproof. The endoscope camera heads have an image sensor along with lenses for zooming and focusing. Generally, there are two types of sensors which are used with endoscope camera heads and they are CCD (charge coupled device) and CMOS sensor. Amongst them, the CCD sensor has been in use longer and produces high quality, low noise images but consumes more power. The CMOS sensor is more susceptible to noise and comparatively consumes less power.
On the basis of geography, the global endoscope camera heads market is segmented into six key regions viz. North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific excluding China, China and the Middle East & Africa. The North America endoscope camera heads market is projected to dominate the global endoscope camera heads market, followed by Europe endoscope camera heads market. This is majorly due to the advanced technological advancements and presence of established manufacturers in the region. Asia Pacific endoscope camera heads market is anticipated to register maximum CAGR over the forecast period. In Asia Pacific endoscope camera heads market, India and China are expected to contribute maximum market share in the endoscope camera heads market. However, due to less availability of skilled healthcare professionals in Latin America and Middle East & Africa regions, the endoscope camera heads market in these regions is expected to grow with a slow growth rate.
The endoscope camera heads market is highly fragmented. Some of the key players present in the global endoscope camera heads market are Olympus Corporation, XION GmbH, Stryker Corporation, B. Braun Melsungen AG, WISAP Medical Technology GmbH, and others. Key players in the North America endoscope camera heads market are focused on increasing their product features and portfolio to strengthen their position in the global endoscope camera heads market and also to expand their footprint in the emerging markets.
