The single-use flexible cystoscope provides consistent quality without the need for reprocessing cleaning, or repairs in between procedures, and there is no risk of cross-contamination because sterile cystoscopes are used and discarded after each operation. Unlike rigid cystoscopes, flexible cystoscopes works in combination of both optical system and the working/irrigation channel into a single unit.

Cystoscopy procedure allows the urologist view the urinary tract, particularly the bladder, urethra, and the openings to the ureter. Cystoscopy is helpful in diagnosis and treatment of urinary tract problems. This include early signs of urinary tract cancers, painful urination (dysuria), stone in urinary tract, urinary tract infection (UTI), narrowing, enuresis (involuntary urination), blockage, or bleeding (hematuria).

Sales Analysis of Market from 2015 – 2022 Vs Market Outlook for 2023 – 2033

The global single-use cystoscope market recorded a historic CAGR of 7.4% in the last 7 years from 2015 to 2022 due to high preference for flexible single-use cystoscope for various urinary tract problems.

Key players and hospitals are working for advanced techniques for minimizing cross-contamination as infection rates and healthcare acquired infections (HAIs) are on the rise. Single-use cystoscope helps decrease incidence of infections (both internal and external) and thus, demand for the same is expected to gain momentum over the forecast period.

The single-use cystoscope is portable, self- contained with its own light source, and video recording features, less recovery time due to minimally invasive procedure allowing it to be used in any office, clinics and hospitals.

Reusable cystoscope requires reprocessing after every procedure to maintain the sterility of cystoscope. Emerging countries lack inadequate reprocessing facilities as reprocessing requires proper facilities and trained professionals, thus creating more scopes for disposable or single-use medical devices. The potential reprocessing cost commonly associated with reusable endoscopes can also be minimized with use of single-use cystoscope.

Most companies offer online and international shipping, so the device can be ordered from anywhere globally. Online websites also aid in the promotion of products, resulting in better opportunities for players in the near future.

  • For instance, companies such as NeoScope and UroViu offer online ordering services for single-use cystoscopes.

Organizations such as World Health Organization (WHO) and Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are conducting various awareness campaigns and programs which include training sessions and guidelines to educate people about hospital acquired infections and thus helping to prevent their occurrence and improve patient safety.

Thus, all these favorable opportunities are anticipated to expand the global market.

How Can the Global Market Grow?

“Cystoscope Widening the Scope for Diagnosis of Urinary Tract Problems”

Cystoscopes are used to diagnose and treat urinary tract problems such as recurring UTI. A cystoscope can also be used to diagnose problems such as blood in the urine (hematuria). A cystoscope is also commonly used to diagnose a urethral or ureteral blockage or narrowing. Urologists use cystoscope to remove stones from the bladder and urethra and to treat urinary incontinence. To treat specific conditions, special tools can be passed through the cystoscope. A very small bladder tumor, for example, may be removed during cystoscopy.

  • According to a 2021 article published in the journal Frontiers in Public Health on UTI among geriatric patients, UTI/bacterial infections (upper and lower urinary tract) are extremely common in the elderly population and a consistent cause of hospitalisation globally. UTIs cause about 7 Million hospital visits, 1 Million emergency visits, and 100,000 hospitalisations each year, which is about 25% of all infections among the elderly.

UTI diagnosis and treatment are more difficult in the elderly population than in the younger population due to underlying risk factors such as older age, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, hypertension, chronic kidney disease, spinal cord injuries, weakened immunity, and catheterization.

  • Study of 460 patients published in this article found asymptomatic bacteriuria 31.9%, cystitis 37.6%, prostatitis 6.4%, pyelonephritis 13.9%, and urosepsis 10.2%.

Single-use cystoscopes are used to have a better visual of the bladder and urethra due to the rising need for early detection and treatment of prostate and bladder cancer, which is driving the growth of the global market.

  • According to WHO data 2020, estimated prostate cancer cases were 1,414,259 (7.3%) and number of deaths due prostate cancer cases were 375,304 (3.8%). Urological cancer, on the other hand, is the 10th most common cancer type worldwide. The number of bladder cancer cases diagnosed was 600,000, with about 200,000 deaths caused by this disease.

Can the Market Growth Be Affected in Any Way?

“Unskilled Professionals, Few Variety, and Side Effect after Cystoscopy Use”

Delivery of high-quality cystoscopy services largely depends on the capability of the cystoscopy specialist. Globally, the demand for cystoscopic procedures is increasing. Single-use cystoscope is also a new technology penetrating the market requiring highly skilled professionals for its operation. Hence, the growth of the global market can be affected due to the limited number of skilled professionals.

Currently, only few market players are offering single-use cystoscope in the market, thus buyers are left with fewer options to choose from. There are also many substitutes and alternatives available for single-use cystoscope in the market, thus limiting the growth of the global market. Many healthcare facilities have already invested in reusable cystoscopies. Thus the presence of few market players are hampering the growth of the global market over the forecast period.

There are several side effects associated with single-use cystoscope, which may last for one or two days after cystoscopy, such as mild burning urination, mild discomfort in kidney and bladder area, need to urinate more frequently, and small amount of blood in urine. Thus, these side effects are anticipated to hamper the adoption of the global market.
