Bronchoscopes Market Snapshot
[198 Pages Report] According to Future Market Insights (FMI), the global Bronchoscopes Market is expected to register sales worth U.S. $ 480.3 Mn by the end of 2021 and will expand 1.3X over the forecast period. The market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period of 2022-2028 and will register sales of U.S. $ 647.7 Mn in the year 2028.
The global bronchoscopes market is expected to account for nearly 4% of the global endoscopes market by the end of 2021, which is expected to be valued at U.S. $ 13.0 Bn in the same year. The growing incidence of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary fibrosis, interstitial pneumonitis, occupational sarcoidosis and pulmonary hemorrhage are driving the demand for bronchoscopes market and may present with many beneficial opportunities for the manufacturers, globally.
Conventional (multiple use) flexible bronchoscopes have time and monetary costs associated with cleaning, and carries the risk of cross infection. A single-use flexible video bronchoscope eliminates any risk of cross-contamination. Early assessment of the cost effectiveness of single-use bronchoscopes indicates potential hospital savings and patient benefits from infections avoided. Increased use of single use flexible bronchoscopes is driving a large market owing to attractive advantages.
It is observed that bronchoscopes has undergone a tremendous shift from the conventional invasive procedures to minimally invasive and advanced devices. Advancements and development of improved bronchoscopes such as White-light bronchoscopy, Auto fluorescence (blue-light) bronchoscopy, navigational bronchoscopy and others are expected to be the key factors driving the growth of the global market. Presently, advancements in technology have led to the development of the bronchoscopes, with an expansion of potential applications. Technological advancements in bronchoscopes will propel the growth of this market over the forecast period.
According to the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP), around 14.8 million people in the U.S. suffered from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in the year 2020. Bronchoscopy is necessary for constant evaluation of the disease progression. Rising cases of bronchoscopy is another factor which will positively impact the growth of bronchoscopes market over the forecast period.
The sales of video bronchoscopes is expected to reach U.S. $ 414.8 Mn, by value, by the end of 2021, which would contribute to around 86.4% share of the total revenue of bronchoscopes market. Bronchoscopy is an important diagnostic procedure for all the pulmonary diseases, the rising incidence of these diseases will drive the demand for this market over the forecast period.

2012-2021 Bronchoscopes Demand Outlook Compared to 2022-2028 Forecast
According to Future Market Insights (FMI), the demand for bronchoscopes expanded at a CAGR of 4.1% during the period of 2013-2021. Rising demand for bronchoscopes can be attributed to the rising incidence of pulmonary diseases, increased life expectancy, and technological advancements in the field of bronchoscopy.
The advent of advanced bronchoscopy procedures such as Electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy (ENB) is intended to enhance standard bronchoscopy by providing a three -dimensional roadmap of the lungs and real -time information about the position of the steerable probe during bronchoscopy. The electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy is expected to secure higher reimbursement which will drive the demand for this market over the forecast period.
The improvement of healthcare infrastructure led to improved accessibility to healthcare, which in turn led to increased life expectancy and higher median age of the population. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) statistics, in 2020, the geriatric population was expected to outnumber children below 5 years of age. The proportion of population above 60 years of age would nearly be 22% by 2050. The most common conditions that geriatric population suffers from consist of COPD, diabetes, dementia and many others. Thus, the increasing geriatric population will positively impact the growth of this industry over the forecast period.
The key players of this industry are adopting strategies of acquisitions and product launches to expand their market existence and strengthen their foothold around the world.
- In December 2020, Olympus Corporation announced the acquisition of Veran Medical technologies, Inc., which is a leading advanced medical devices provider and specialises in interventional pulmonology. This acquisition helped the company to expand its pulmonary portfolio.
- In May 2020, Fujifilm Holdings Corporation announced various global milestones and initiatives to expand their endoscopy and endoscopic health portfolio which included addition of artificial intelligence, high-tech image capture and advanced data processing.
The market is consolidated with players such as Olympus Corporation, Fujifilm Holdings Corporation, Teleflex Incorporated, Karl Storz GmbH & Co KG, Richard Wolf GmbH, Hoya Corporation (Pentax medical), Ambu A/S, Shanghai AoHua Photoelectricity Endoscope Co. Ltd., and Rochling Group.
Future Market Insights expects the global endoscopes market to expand at a CAGR of 4.4% over the forecast period owing to the efforts taken by the key players of this industry to expand themselves in the global market.
What is the Impact of COVID-19 on this Industry?
The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on health-care workflows all around the world. Various industries, including several sub-domains of health care, have been forced to temporarily close their doors because to the disease. However, there has been a moderate impact and an increase in demand for a variety of medical services, including bronchoscopy, for better visualisation and documentation systems, and endoscopes.
Bronchoscopy is an aerosol-producing method with a variety of diagnostic and therapeutic applications. However, in the period of the COVID-19 pandemic, airway operations posed various risks of COVID-19 exposure and transmission among health care personnel. To stratify the indications for bronchoscopy and optimise pre-procedural, procedural, and post-procedural preparation, many societies of respiratory medicine collaborated and found appropriate solutions for the same. Thus, the bronchoscopes market experienced a moderate impact of COVID-19 pandemic and is expected to witness stable recovery over the forecast period.

Most of the major medical device players are focusing on cost reduction which has resulted in pricing pressure especially in the lower end devices. The market represents a bimodal nature with high end devices charging the premium. It also represents better use of technology and resources of the company. Distribution efficiency represents another neglected area. Vendors need to develop specialized chains with the end user such as hospitals. Large healthcare providers and hospitals represent a large opportunity. The consolidation of healthcare especially in the U.S. provides a compelling opportunity to address the issues at the earliest.
What are the Restraining Factors for this Bronchoscopes Market?
Risks of cross-contamination and post bronchoscopy infection from bronchoscopy procedures is under research and is dampening the procedure adoption rates. The risks of bronchoscopy such as bleeding, trouble breathing and a low blood oxygen level during the test are also hampering the market. The rates of a patient having a post bronchoscopy infection is rising due to the emergence of methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus and other resistant bacteria. The post bronchoscopy infection rates at ambulatory surgical centres (ASCs) are many times higher than hospitals and clinics, which is hampering the bronchoscopes market.
Emergence of non-invasive diagnostic methods such as liquid biopsy, Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and others is negating the market growth. Growing stringency of regulations such as Post Marketing Approval is hampering the market. Bringing a device to market takes an average of 3 to 7 years. Class III devices require pre-market approval (PMA), the most rigorous process required for devices by the FDA. Such devices will require clinical evidence to support the application owing to significantly greater risks to patients. Thus the growing stringency of regulations is hampering the growth of this industry.
