Esophagoscopes & Gastroscopes Market

Esophagoscopes & Gastroscopes Market: Flexible Endoscope Largest Product Type in Terms of Revenue: Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment 2018 - 2028

Over 75% Revenue Contribution of Leading Manufacturers in the Esophagoscopes & Gastroscopes Market

The esophagoscopes & gastroscopes market is largely dominated by major key players such as Olympus Corporation and Pentax Medical Company who provide various types of endoscopes. These companies are focusing on launching new innovative products in the esophagoscopes & gastroscopes market. In the esophagoscopes & gastroscopes market, companies are focusing on expand their distribution channels in emerging countries, which, in turn, is expected to increase the esophagoscopes & gastroscopes market.

Rising Prevalence of Gastrointestinal Diseases

The rising prevalence of gastrointestinal diseases is a factor mostly responsible for an increase in the use of esophagoscopes & gastroscopes. Gastrointestinal cancer is a common disease among Asian-Americans, as the prevalence rate is around 48.8 per 1,000 hospitalizations, which can increase the growth of the esophagoscopes & gastroscopes market.

The increase in the number of other diseases such as gastroesophageal reflux diseases, gastrointestinal bleeding, stomach cancer, functional gastrointestinal diseases, etc., is also expected to increase the demand for endoscopy procedures, which further propels the demand for esophagoscopes & gastroscopes. Smoking is the major factor causing gastrointestinal diseases .

Other factors that are responsible for causing gastrointestinal diseases are poor diets, urbanizations, etc., which are expected to boost the esophagoscopes & gastroscopes market. Genetics can also be a cause of gastrointestinal diseases.

Increase in the Number of Minimally Invasive Surgeries

Doctors and physicians prefer different types of endoscopes over conventional procedures for detection and treatment, owing to the safety and efficacy of endoscopy procedures. This drives the demand for endoscopes, and is expected to propel the esophagoscopes & gastroscopes market in the long run.

Minimally Invasive surgeries are simple, and the risks associated with them are very low, which is expected to boost the esophagoscopes & gastroscopes market.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 48 million surgical procedures were performed in the U.S. alone in 2009. Of these, 1.1 million were cardiac catheterizations, 525,000 endoscopic procedures, and others included coronary artery bypass grafts, total hip replacement, and endoscopic procedures for the large intestines.

Moreover, around 10 million minimally invasive procedures were performed, globally, in 2011.  The increase in the number of minimally invasive surgeries is expected to boost the growth of the esophagoscopes & gastroscopes market during the forecast period.

Rise in Incidence Rate of Lifestyle Diseases in the Geriatric Population Worldwide

The geriatric population is more prone to lifestyle diseases and disorders such as cardiac disorders, diabetes, and obesity, which are the leading causes of illnesses, globally, and will enhance the esophagoscopes & gastroscopes market.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), life expectancy has increased throughout the world. Age dynamics and increasing longevity have resulted in increasing life expectancy, which eventually has led to a rise in the geriatric population (people aging over 65 years).

Advanced medical and healthcare facilities is also an important factor that is responsible for an increase in the geriatric population.

Thus, the geriatric population has become an important segment for endoscopy procedures. An increase in the prevalence of gastrointestinal procedures for cancer, bleeding, etc., in the elderly population is expected to boost the esophagoscopes & gastroscopes market.

Ease in FDA Clearance

In the endoscope medical devices market, the FDA 510(k) premarket approval process is followed. As per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published list of class II (special control), devices that were subjected to certain limitations are now exempted from premarket notification requirements under the Food and Drug Administration Modernization Act of 1997 (known as Modernization Act).

The Modernization Act and exemptions relieve device manufacturers and developers from the need to submit premarket submissions, and enable the FDA to redirect resources to more significant public health issues.

This minimizes the time taken for regulatory approval – reducing costs significantly, and propelling growth of the endoscope and esophagoscopes & gastroscopes markets.
