U.S. endoscopy devices market size, by product, 2018 – 2028 (USD Billion)

The increasing prevalence of diseases related to age and rising demand for endoscopic devices in therapeutic and diagnostic procedures are some of the factors driving the market growth. The utilization of such products and devices in the treatment and diagnosis of multiple health conditions is beneficial since it enables minimal intervention, thereby shortening the recovery time. The geriatric population is increasing globally, which age group is more prone to medical conditions that often require endoscopic interventions such as pelvic abscess, liver abscess, endometriosis, gall stones, and intestinal perforation. According to the Administration on Aging (AoA) in 2019, a part of the Administration of Community Living, around 16% of the population in the U.S. were aged above 65 years. This number is projected to increase to 21.6% by 2040. Hence, the rising geriatric population is anticipated to support market growth.

In addition, the growing adoption of minimally invasive surgical procedures has fueled the utilization of different types of endoscopes and endoscopy devices in surgical interventions such as bronchoscopy, laparoscopy, arthroscopy, and cystoscopy. The shift of preference toward minimally invasive surgeries over traditional surgeries can be attributed to factors like economic viability, higher patient satisfaction, reduction in hospital stay, and decreased post-surgical complications. Hence, demand for minimally invasive endoscopic interventions is expected to increase in the coming years, thereby boosting the market growth.

Furthermore, the increasing prevalence of cancer is propelling the adoption of endoscopy devices for various treatment as well as diagnosis processes. For instance, according to statistics published by International Agency for Research on Cancer in 2020, around 1 in 5 people develop some or other form of cancer during their lifetime. In addition, the prevalence of cancer has increased substantially in the past few years and this is likely to increase the demand for biopsies for cancer detection and diagnosis. Moreover, endoscopic ultrasound and endoscopy for biopsies are some of the most preferred procedures for the diagnosis of cancer. Therefore, the rising demand for endoscopies for diagnosis is estimated to boost the growth during the forecast period.

Technological advancements in the field of endoscopy devices are also positively affecting market growth. Major players are keen on providing technologically advanced and innovative endoscopy solutions for better diagnosis and treatment. In 2021, Fujifilm Holdings Corporation announced the launch of the ELUXEO 7000X System, a novel video imaging technology. This advanced imaging system is beneficial in enabling real-time visualization of the hemoglobin-oxygen saturation levels in the tissues during the endoluminal imaging and/or laparoscopic procedures.

In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the market. The postponement and reduction in the number of elective surgeries performed during the pandemic have impacted drastically on the market. In addition, changing regulations with respect to surgical procedures, including minimally invasive procedures and supply chain disruptions are some of the other factors that have hampered the growth of the market during the pandemic. According to an international study of endoscopists, published in Elsevier Public Health Emergency Collection in 2020, around 85% of the respondents reduced the procedure volume by over 50% and approximately 2.45% of respondents completely stopped their endoscopy services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Product Insights

Based on product type, the endoscopy visualization systems segment dominated the market and accounted for a revenue share of 37.4% in 2020.

Within endoscopes, flexible endoscopes accounted for the largest revenue share in 2020, owing to various advantages provided by flexible endoscopes such as safety, enhanced ergonomics, and increased efficiency as compared to rigid endoscopes.

Application Insights

Based on application, the GI (gastrointestinal) endoscopy segment held the highest revenue share of 54.9% in 2020 owing to the growing burden of gastrointestinal diseases and the rising geriatric population. In addition, the increasing number of gastroscopies, rising adoption of endoscopy devices for diagnosis and treatment of GI diseases, and availability of technically advanced products for gastroscopy are some of the factors driving the gastroscopy market.

Furthermore, in applications, the urology endoscopy segment is projected to grow at the fastest growth rate during the forecast period. An increase in urology surgeries and the rising burden of urological cancers are among the factors expected to drive the demand for urology endoscopies. According to data published by Cancer Research UK, bladder cancer accounted for around 3% of the all-new cancer cases in the timespan between 2016-2018 in the country. In addition, increasing the treatment rate substantially is anticipated to fuel the adoption of endoscopic devices in urological surgeries, thereby boosting the market growth.

End-use Insights

In 2020, based on end use, the hospitals segment dominated the market and accounted for the highest revenue share of 47.8%. This high share is attributable to substantially large adoption and usage of endoscopy devices in the hospitals as compared to other healthcare systems and favorable reimbursement policies. Furthermore, hospitals are generally the primary health systems in many of the countries and therefore the number of surgeries performed in hospitals is higher, thereby signifying greater demand and adoption.
