Brazil Endoscopy Devices Market Trends

The Brazil endoscopy devices market size was valued at USD 469.1 million in 2023 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.80% from 2024 to 2030. Increasing prevalence of various gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, and other target diseases are expected to boost the market growth. Technological advancements such as digital and magnetic endoscopy devices will further propel the market growth. During COVID-19 pandemic the government had to restrict the elective procedures, furthermore, large number of endoscopy centers in Brazil accommodated COVID-19 patients during the pandemic, which impacted the market growth negatively. However, post pandemic the market witnessed significant growth as elective procedures were resumed.

The less invasive properties and affordable post and pre-procedure cost of endoscopy devices are the major factors anticipated to boost the market growth over the forecast period. Furthermore, a shift in trend to use disposable endoscopic components to minimize the procedure cost and the chance of cross-contamination is also expected to accelerate market growth over the years. Minimally invasive surgeries are economically viable alternatives to open surgeries and result in reduced risk of postoperative complications, shorter hospital stay and recovery time, and decreased blood loss during surgeries.

Technological advancements in minimally invasive surgeries are expected to drive the demand for endoscopy procedures further. Development of capsule endoscopes and robot-assisted endoscopy has increased the demand for minimally invasive endoscopic surgeries. Technological advancements in minimally invasive surgeries and introduction of new products, majorly endoscopic visualization systems in the market, are expected to propel market growth. Furthermore, the growing number of healthcare centers, such as hospitals, oncology specialty clinics, and cancer centers, is increasing in the need for endoscopy devices.

Increasing prevalence of cancer and cancer-related mortality is expected to drive the market demand for endoscopic procedures with enhanced visualization. According to the National Institute of Cancer, Brazil, the country is estimated to register 704,000 cancer cases from 2023 to 2025. In addition, the emergence of endoscopic bariatric surgeries, namely, endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is expected to heighten market growth. This procedure uses sutures for restructuring the stomach and aids in reducing the stomach size by 70%. Although weight loss due to endoscopic bariatric surgery is not as effective as surgical bariatric procedure, endoscopic bariatric surgery results in better health outcomes. Thus, a rise in demand for these endoscopic bariatric procedures is expected to propel the demand for endoscopes and endoscopy devices.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The Brazil endoscopy devices market growth is moderate, and the pace of market growth is accelerating. The market is moderately competitive, and key players contribute to this competitive landscape with strategic initiatives, product development, research and development, and regional expansion to propel market growth.

Brazil Endoscopy Devices Market Concentration & Characteristics

The Brazil endoscopy devices market is characterized by a high degree of innovation owing to the increasing research and development by market participants and regulatory bodies and academic institutions. The “see-and-treat" TRUCLEAR hysteroscope by Smith & Nephew exemplifies a vital technological advancement in this market.

Market players in the Brazil endoscopy devices market are undertaking merger and acquisition activities to increase their product portfolio and aid product capabilities. For instance, in December 2023, Medtronic plc announced a partnership with Cosmo Intelligent Medical Devices to leverage their AI-integrated healthcare solutions in endoscopic care.

The medical devices regulatory framework has witnessed drastic changes since the COVID-19 pandemic. To aid the procurement of medical devices, the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) in Brazil had reduced the regulations essential for their certification and approval. With a new Medical Devices Regulation coming into force in March 2023, product safety and quality have been more emphasized, and manufacturers can expect strengthened support in incorporating emerging technologies.

Market participants strive for new features to drive product expansions, investing in heavy research and development. For instance, the innovative capsule endoscopy technology acts as a substitute to the conventional endoscope.

The Brazil endoscopy devices market has witnessed internal regional expansion and North American players’ expansion in the country. Some companies are devising business growth strategies through mergers and acquisitions to expand their business geographies. Key manufacturers in the region are collaborating with local distributors and expanding their geographical reach. For instance, in July 2022, Olympus’ venture capital fund, Olympus Innovation Ventures, made its first investment, a Series A financing of Virgo Surgical Video Solutions to utilize their minimally invasive technology and techniques in respiratory care, urology, gastroenterology, and other applications.

Product Insights

Brazil endoscopy visualization components market dominated the endoscopy devices market in 2023, accounting for a 36.50% revenue share. This is attributable to the adoption of ultra-high-definition visualization systems, which aid in the diagnosis and treatment of complex diseases such as cancer, lung disorders, urological disorders, and more. The Brazilian market may face challenges such as a lack of skilled professionals, prohibitive prices, and a lack of patient and provider awareness. In an attempt to aid the process of endoscopic visualization, Medtronic plc launched an AI-driven endoscopy module to treat colorectal cancer in August 2022.

The Brazil endoscopes market segment is anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The segment growth is driven by the increasing adoption of minimally invasive surgical procedures and growing awareness of endoscopes for various diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Their varied usage in cardiology, orthopedic treatment, pulmonology, and other care areas makes endoscopes a highly demanded commodity.

Application Insights

The Brazil gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy segment dominated the market with a staggering 55.52% market share. The introduction of technologically advanced procedures by key market players is boosting the uptake of GI endoscopy. The introduction of capsule endoscopy to diagnose various GI disorders is driving the market further. New product developments by market leaders, such as Olympus Corporation and a few others, are expected to drive the market.

The urology endoscopy (cystoscopy) market segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate over the forecast period. A growing number of urology surgeries and the increasing prevalence of urologic cancers are among the factors expected to drive the demand for urology endoscopies. According to the World Cancer Research Fund, bladder cancer is the tenth most common cancer across the globe; there were approximately 550,000 new bladder cancer cases detected in 2018 globally, among which, 22.8% were females and 77.2% were males. Subsequent increase in the treatment rate is expected to boost the adoption of endoscopic devices in urologic surgeries. The growing adoption of flexible endoscopes and use of endoscopic devices to diagnose and treat urologic disorders are boosting the market growth.

End-use Insights

Hospitals led the market share with 46.73%, owing to the rapidly growing number of surgeries performed in hospitals. The segment is expected to grow significantly as hospitals are the most common setting for endoscopy procedures and they require specialized equipment and skilled healthcare professionals, Furthermore, the increasing number of hospitals and clinics and the country’s improving infrastructure, are also contributing to the hospitals segment’s dominance.
