Report Overview

The global bronchoscopes market size valued at USD 15.4 billion in 2017 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.3% from 2018 to 2025. Demand for bronchoscopes has been on a rise due to the increasing prevalence of respiratory diseases, improving reimbursement policies, and technological advancements.

U.S. bronchoscopes market

Bronchoscopes are primarily used for the assessment and management of multiple respiratory and airway diseases. Conditions such as blockages, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases (COPD), bronchopulmonary hemorrhage, tumors, airway stenosis, and inflammatory conditions can be detected and diagnosed through these devices.

The increasing prevalence of various respiratory diseases is the most significant factor positively impacting the market growth. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), over 3.0 million people die from COPD every year. As per the American Cancer Society, over 234,030 new cases of lung cancer were reported in the U.S. at the end of 2018.

Furthermore, according to Cancer Research UK, around 46,400 new cases of lung cancer are diagnosed each year. Besides, according to the World Cancer Research Fund International, around 58.0% of lung cancer cases occurred in developing countries, which can be attributed to the alarming prevalence of a host of respiratory diseases. Thus, demand for bronchoscopes is expected to witness a major boost in the future.

Type Insights

Based on type, the market is broadly bifurcated into rigid and flexible types. Flexible bronchoscopes are further segmented into video, fibreoptic, and hybrid. The flexible segment captured the largest share in terms of revenue due to high video quality and significant cost-effectiveness. The fibreoptic sub-segment has been dominating the flexible segment owing to the many benefits offered by it, such as high-quality videos, which results in easy identification of tumors and infections in deeper levels of bronchioles.

In addition to the above-mentioned advantages, flexible bronchoscopes are convenient for doctors as well as patients. Recovery time after flexible bronchoscopy is significantly lesser as compared to rigid bronchoscopy. Moreover, the narrow size of these devices allows for a deeper reach into small lumens.

Use Insights

Based on use, the market is segmented into reusable and disposable devices. The reusable segment captured the largest market share in 2017 in terms of revenue. Multi-usage and cost-effectiveness are the key advantages these devices offer. As a result, more than 500 bronchoscopy procedures are performed in a year. This is sure to drive the market at a lucrative rate during the forecast period.

Global bronchoscopes market

Disposable devices are likely to emerge as the fastest-growing segment in the bronchoscopes market. Affordability is one of the major advantages these devices offer, especially those recently launched in the market. Medical facilities that perform fewer than 500 procedures a year save a significant margin as compared to costs incurred through reusable bronchoscopes. Furthermore, factors such as no cross-contamination, instant availability, and no reprocessing cost are some other factors contributing to market growth. 

Regional Insights

North America is the most developed market, followed by Europe. Increasing cases of lung cancer and the presence of a large number of well-established players are contributing to the growth of this market. The U.S. is the largest market for bronchoscopes across the world. These devices are widely adopted in the country, which can be primarily attributed to favorable reimbursement policies by state and federal governments.

The Asia Pacific market is expected to witness remarkable growth throughout the forecast period owing to extensive growth opportunities in Japan, China, and India. Factors such as mandatory healthcare insurance, rising technological advancements, increased healthcare expenditure, and an increasing number of global companies looking to cater to high unmet medical needs in these countries are driving the market.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

Key strategies adopted by major players include collaborations, mergers and acquisitions, new product launches, and partnerships to strengthen their position in the market. For instance, in May 2014, Olympus launched two new endoscopes for peripheral and small anatomy bronchoscopy: the BF-190 and BF-XP190 bronchoscopes.
