Endoscope Reprocessing Device Market

Endoscope Reprocessing Device Market: Hospitals to Remain Most Attractive Segment by End User During the Forecast Period: Global Industry Analysis (2012 - 2016) and Opportunity Assessment (2017 - 2027)

Regional trends governing the global endoscope reprocessing device market

MEA- Rising technological advancement and spending on healthcare facilities

Increasing demand for advanced healthcare services, increase in purchasing power, lower pricing in the region and green field opportunities for the development of medical infrastructure are factors fuelling the demand for endoscopes reprocessing devices in the Middle East and Africa region.

Mandatory insurance schemes is a priority of various countries’ governments in the region which is also expected to drive patients to seek better healthcare treatment over the forecast period. The Middle East and Africa region is considered to be the fastest growing region in the next few years as the healthcare spending in the region is anticipated to rise by 10 % annually.

Western Europe- Expansion via partnerships and collaborations

Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) lay greater emphasis on collaboration and partnership activities with local and regional players from Europe to expand sales and after sales services for endoscope reprocessing devices.

The companies also focuses on establishing new set ups in Europe to support manufacturing and sales activities. Through partnerships and collaborations with regional players and third party service vendors, companies transfer technology and rights of after sales service to strengthen their brand recognition in the market, which is anticipated to fuel growth of the endoscope market as well as the endoscope reprocessing device market.

Japan- Increasing awareness among medical practitioners and public about incidents of infection and disease transmission threats

Outbreaks of bacterial infection associated with endoscopes is due to improper reprocessed endoscopes. Growing concern of technicians and physicians about patient safety is expected to drive the growth of endoscope reprocessing device market in Japan.

Rising awareness regarding the use of endoscope reprocessing for securement of exogenous and endogenous infections is associated with flexible endoscopy which is expected to fuel an overall demand for endoscope reprocessor systems, particularly in Japan.

APEJ- Increasing Demand of the automated reprocessing over manual cleaning Procedures

The demand for automated reprocessing of endoscope over conventional procedures in the region is increasing, due to various benefits, such as less procedure time, shorter hospital stay, effectiveness and surety of contamination free procedures.

The rising demand for endoscopy related surgical procedures, i.e. the minimally invasive procedures is fuelling demand for endoscopes in the region. The demand of endoscopes primarily stems from countries, such as Singapore, India, China, Korea and Japan that have developed medical infrastructure. Increased affordability for endoscopes also contributes towards the increased number of endoscopes.

The APEJ market is expected to be the most lucrative market for endoscope reprocessing devices, due to the increasing demand for endoscopes in the region.

North America- Increasing Government Spending on Healthcare in the U.S

Increasing government spending in North America is expected to boost growth of the endoscope and endoscope reprocessing device markets.  As per the centres for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the overall healthcare spending in North America is expected to increase at an average of 4.6 percent per year during the period 2016–2019.
