In addition, the growing chronic disease burden and increasing geriatric population all over the globe are also anticipated to fuel the adoption of endoscopic devices during the coming years. Moreover, growing medical conditions due to the increasing geriatric population often require endoscopic intervention such as liver abscess, gall stones, endometriosis, and intestinal perforation, which in turn are anticipated to drive the market for endoscopy devices over the forecast years. For instance, as per the Administration on Aging (AoA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services report, about 16% of the population were aged above 65 years during 2019. This number is expected to increase to 21.6% by 2040.

In addition, increasing preference by medical professionals to use technologically advanced endoscopy devices equipped with a high-definition camera and light sources to help physicians analyze internal organs of interest also drives the market. The shift of preference towards minimally invasive surgical procedures than traditional surgeries to reduce hospital stay and minimize post-procedure complications are the major factors anticipated to fuel the demand for endoscopy devices. Hence, factors such as higher patient satisfaction, increased economic viability, and lesser hospital stay are expected to increase the demand for minimally invasive endoscopic interventions in the coming years, thereby accelerating market growth.

Furthermore, the growing burden of cancer all over the world also fuels the adoption of endoscopy devices for the early diagnosis and treatment of the disease. For instance, according to GLOBOCAN 2020 estimates 19.3 million new cancer cases worldwide and almost 10 million death occurred in 2020 due to cancer. In addition, the increasing preference for biopsies for diagnosis and detection of cancer in recent years is also likely to increase the adoption of endoscopic devices, which in turn is anticipated to drive the market for endoscopy devices over the years.

Technological advancement to develop innovative endoscopic devices is also anticipated to accelerate market growth during forecast periods. The key manufacturers are continuously looking forward to innovating advanced endoscopic solutions for better treatment and diagnosis of several chronic disorders. For instance, in August 2021, Fujifilm Holdings Corporation announced the commercial launch of the ELUXEO 7000X endoscopic Imaging System. This advanced imaging system enables real-time visualization of hemoglobin oxygen saturation (StO2) levels in tissue during laparoscopic and/or endoluminal imaging procedures.

COVID19 Endoscopy devices market estimates impact: 3.4% decrease in revenue growth from 2019 to 2020

Pandemic Impact

Post COVID Outlook

The Global endoscopy devices market estimates decreased by 3.4% from 2019 to 2020

The market is estimated to witness a y-o-y growth of approximately 6.9% to 7.4% in the next 5 years

The decrease in the market growth is due to the decrease in a number of endoscopic procedures during 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic as compared to 2019. In addition, the canceled or postponed semi-urgent and elective endoscopic procedures by the healthcare centers due to the fear of COVID-19 infection also restrained market growth.

The growing number of functional gastrointestinal disorders and cancer cases and the increase in the preference for cost-effective minimally invasive endoscopic procedures for the early diagnosis and detection of chronic diseases are anticipated to propel the adoption of endoscopic devices over the forecast years.

Furthermore, supply chain disruption, the shortage of healthcare professionals due to the COVID-19 infection, and changing regulations to curtail the infection in major geographic regions resulted in a significant impact on the global market growth in 2020.

High preference for disposable endoscopic equipment to minimize the chances of cross-contamination coupled with the technological advancement to develop cost-effective products helps in shortening the procedure time and these are the factors expected to accelerate market growth over the forecast years.


In addition, the endoscopy devices market has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The reduction and postponement of elective surgeries due to the fear of COVID-19 infection have negatively impacted the growth of the market for endoscopy devices. In addition, supply chain disruptions, changing regulations for surgical procedures, are some of the factors that also hampered market growth in 2020. For instance, according to an international study published in the Arab Journal of Gastroenterology, Elsevier in 2020, the endoscopic procedure volume was reduced by over 50% of the 85% of the responded countries all over the world during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Product Insights 

The endoscopy visualization systems segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 36.6% in 2022 owing to their wide adoption during endoscopy procedures and increasing application for the visualization and diagnosis of complex disease conditions such as cancer, GI disorders, urinary disorders, and lung disorders. In addition, the availability of next-generation endoscopy visualization systems which enables surgeons to visualize the internal organ of choice with the minimally invasive procedure is further boosting its adoption and signifying higher share to the segment. 

In addition, the endoscopes segment accounted for a CAGR of 9.4% in the market for endoscopy devices during the forecast period. This high growth rate is attributed due to the increasing number of endoscopic procedures coupled with the high adoption of endoscopes to perform surgeries and biopsies for better diagnosis and treatment. The flexible endoscopes segment dominated the endoscopes segment and accounted for a high revenue share in 2021, owing to its high preference of use by medical professionals and its advantages such as safety, increased efficiency, and enhanced ergonomics as compared to rigid endoscopes.

Application Insights

The Gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy segment dominated the market for endoscopy devices and accounted for a revenue share of 55.3% in 2022. This high share of the segment is attributable to the increasing geriatric population and the growing burden of functional gastrointestinal diseases. In addition, rising preference for endoscopy procedure as first-line treatment for early detection and diagnosis of functional gastrointestinal disorders and the availability of technologically advanced endoscopes are some of the major factors driving the growth of the segment. 

Furthermore, the urology endoscopy segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth rate over the forecast years owing to the increasing prevalence of chronic urological diseases such as cancer and tumor and the growing number of cystoscopy procedures. For instance, as per the report published by Cancer Research U.K., each year there are about 10,300 new cases of bladder cancer in the U.K. and it is the 11th most common cancer in the U.K. Since cystoscopy is the main diagnostic procedure for bladder cancer, it is anticipated to fuel the segment growth over the forecast years. 

End-use Insights

The hospital's segment dominated the market for endoscopy devices and accounted for the highest revenue share of 47.1% in 2022. Hospitals are generally considered as primary health systems and the increase in preference of hospitals for the diagnosis and treatment of chronic disorders by the patient population is also fueling the segment growth. In addition, a large number of surgeries performed in hospitals including endoscopy procedures also increase the endoscopy devices adoption thereby supporting segment growth.
