A borescope is an optical inspection tool that is used to visually inspect areas that are not easily accessible. It typically consists of a long, flexible tube with a small camera and light at the end. The camera sends images back to a display, allowing the user to see inside the inspected area. They can be used in a variety of industries such as automotive, aerospace, chemical and industrial manufacturing.

The high cost of advanced borescope models and the Limited availability of skilled operators to use the instruments is the restraint to the borescope market.

The Borescope market held a 1.5% market share of the optical instrument market.
