Over the years, the demand for endoscopy has increased significantly because of the growing preference for minimally invasive surgical procedures. Apart from being minimally invasive, endoscopic procedures are also cost effective in terms of pre- and post-operation care costs and length of stay at hospitals.
Endoscopy systems have a huge market demand across the globe owing to their wide application areas as well as their flexibility in terms of specification of instruments, which fits in with the various requirements of different procedures.
The global endoscopy equipment market was estimated at $28.2 billion in 2013 and is expected to reach $37.9 billion by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 6.1% from 2013 to 2018.
The market has seen an extraordinary amount of technological advancements and breakthroughs in the last few years, as companies have focused on developing products that are capable of reducing pain, curtailing the number of sick days, and reducing the overall cost of the treatment.
North America holds the largest share of the global endoscopy equipment market, followed by Europe and Asia. However, the growth in the endoscopy market is likely to be focused on the fast-growing Asian region owing to increased healthcare spending by the government in China; the increasing number of endoscopic surgeries; the improving endoscopic infrastructure in India; the establishment of training centers for endoscopy in India, China, Japan, and others; wide support for endoscopy-related research activities in Japan; and increased patient awareness about minimally invasive surgeries (MIS) in Asia.
