Single-use endoscopes are projected to gain significant growth in the coming years. These endoscopes may eliminate the need for maintenance and reprocessing, and will be beneficial for procedures where a higher-level of infection control is required. Single-use endoscopes are cost-effective and provide more procedure-specific requirements.

Reusable endoscopes are not typically procedure-specific, while single-use endoscopes provide more specific options to overcome specific procedure needs. Therefore, manufacturers are focusing on the expansion of their product lines of single-use and disposable endoscopes.

For instance, in December 2019, Boston Scientific received FDA clearance for World's First Single-Use Duodenoscope, EXALT™ Model D Single-Use Duodenoscope, for use in endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) procedures. All these factors bode well for the growth of the endoscopes market over the coming years.

Key Stakeholders Focusing on Introduction of New Robotic Endoscopy Systems

Robotic endoscopy is expected to witness high demand over the forecast period as excellent perioperative and long-term outcomes. Therefore, manufacturers are focusing on introducing new robotic surgery systems for different endoscopic procedures.

Intuitive Surgical is a dominating player in robotic surgery systems, with its da Vinci endoscope. Other players such as Auris Health Inc. and & Medrobotics Corporation are planning to expand their presence in the robotic endoscopy market.

For instance, in March 2018, Auris Health Inc. launched its robotic endoscopic technology called the Monarch Platform for bronchoscopy procedures. Moreover, small market players such as Otsuka Medical, AKTORmed GmbH, and Endocontrol Medical are also focusing on making their footprint strong in the global robot-assisted endoscopes market.

Rising Prevalence of Gastrointestinal Diseases to Boost Demand for Endoscopes

The rising prevalence of gastrointestinal diseases and colorectal has resulted in a rise in endoscopy procedures for diagnosis and treatment purposes. According to the World Health Organizations (WHO), the incidence of gastrointestinal (GI) diseases complications and colorectal cancer is rising, worldwide, in elder patients.

According to the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), around 147,950 adults in the United States are expected to be diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2020. Thus, for the diagnosis of cancer and tumors, doctors prefer endoscopes, due to the efficacy and safety of endoscopic procedures. This boosts the demand for endoscopes and propels the growth of the market.

Growing Adoption of Endoscopic Procedures for Post-operative Benefits

In endoscopic procedures, treatment and diagnosis of diseases are done through small incisions in the body. Chances of developing an infection are less in endoscopic procedures as compared to conventional surgeries where large incisions are required and the chances of infection are higher.

Endoscopic procedures are cost-effective and reduce healthcare burden. These procedures have a low risk of complications and short procedure time; therefore, patients enjoy benefits of shorter hospital stay and less post-operative costs.

These factors have resulted in the growing adoption of endoscopic procedures, which is expected to propel the growth of the global endoscopes market.

COVID-19's Impact on Endoscopes Market

The outbreak of COVID-19 has posed a challenge to the entire medical devices market. With governments prioritizing treatment for COVID-19 patients, all nonessential medical procedures and treatments have been postponed.

Furthermore, North America, being one among the severely affected nations due to the outbreak, has witnessed a shortage of manpower, resulting in limitations on production and trading. The practice of social distancing is an additional factor impacting the smooth workflow of the market.

However, endoscopy is considered essential in cardiovascular disease detection, and hence, endoscopy associated treatment is more likely to keep up its regular pace. As awareness regarding infection grows, medical bodies are advising precautions to health workers working on endoscopic procedures. Moreover, the demand for single-use endoscopes will increase on the back of awareness regarding the transmission of the infection.
