Endoscopy Devices Market Size (2022 to 2027)

As per our report, the global endoscopy devices market size is predicted to be worth USD 45.54 billion by 2027 from USD 32.78 billion in 2022 and is estimated to be expanding at a CAGR of 6.80% during the forecast period.

Endoscopy is a technology that can alter the viewpoint of identifying diseases and how surgeries were achieved previously and are receiving attention across the world. Endoscopy procedures are a less invasive and affordable expenditure in pre-and post-operational care and length of stay at hospitals. In particular countries, these processes are increasing due to covering by health insurance provident. Moreover, there is a spike in preferring endoscopy procedures among physicians and patients.


Y-O-Y growth in the prevalence and incidence of chronic disorders such as diabetes, heart, and cancer in older people worldwide promotes the global endoscopy devices market growth.

Chronic diseases are the leading causes of disability and death worldwide. According to the WHO, CVDs infected about 17.9 million people in 2016, accounting for 31% of global deaths. Cancer is the leading cause of death globally, responsible for almost ten million deaths in 2020. In low- and middle-income countries, prevalence has increased faster than in high-income countries. Diabetes was directly responsible for an estimated 1.5 million deaths in 2019. As per CDC, the prevalence of chronic illnesses is significantly growing in the Americas, and 6 in every 10 Americans have at least one.

The rising incidence of GI and digestive diseases globally is another significant factor in boosting the global endoscopy devices market.

According to the statistics published by the CDC, there are about 7.9 million visits to emergency departments with digestive system disorders as the primary diagnosis. In 2015, an estimated 1.3% of adults in the United States (3 million) were diagnosed with IBD (either ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease). IBD has a global prevalence of 0.5-24.5 cases per 100,000 person-years for ulcerative colitis and 0.1-16 cases per 100,000 person-years for Crohn's disease. Therefore, the overall prevalence of IBD is 396 cases per 100,000 people per year.

Usage of endoscopy procedures is increasing due to major chronic diseases like cardiovascular diseases, cancer, neurological disorders, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disorder), and orthopedic disorders. As per cancer research in the UK, nearly 17 million cancer cases were diagnosed worldwide in 2017 and estimated that this number will reach 27.5 million by 2040. A rise in the incidence of target health conditions is also expected to drive the endoscopy market demand.

Y-O-Y growth in the number of medical devices in various countries across the globe is a plus to the global endoscopy devices market.

In 2019, the volume of medical device manufacturing in Japan reached about 2.57 trillion Japanese yen, while imports totaled near 2.72 trillion yen. As a result, therapeutic equipment and devices have had the largest market share in Japan in recent years, both domestic and imported.

A rising number of minimally invasive surgeries worldwide is expected to support the global endoscopes market.

Surgery is now performed on a large scale worldwide, in both rich and poor environments and despicable. The implications are significant. This underappreciated global growth demonstrates the critical need for public-health efforts to improve the surveillance, availability of surgical services, and safety, particularly in light of their high risk and cost.


High costs associated with the endoscopy procedures and equipment and limited reimbursement in developing countries are expected to restrain the global endoscopy devices market.

Stringent regulatory criteria for new technological products have stifled the market’s growth. The demand for endoscopes is further being hampered by the high cost of medical devices and IBD diagnosis. In addition, the system was unable to function due to a shortage of professional and skilled personnel. Unavailability of home healthcare is in remote areas, lack of experienced endoscopists and physicians, and limitations of endoscopy are some of the restricting factors for the growth of the endoscopes market.

Many growing countries, like India, Mexico, and Brazil, have low finance to invest in sophisticated technologies. In addition, wear and tear of insertion and light guide tubes will be caused during the disinfection processes if continually heating and cooling, which is majorly hampering the growth of the endoscopy devices market.

The major challenge for the global endoscopes market is product recalls due to defects in manufacturing processes. For instance, a large player-Olympus recalled four of its products in 2019 itself. Frequently recalls of products pose a significant challenge for the endoscopy devices market.

Impact of Covid-19 on the global endoscopy devices market:

The novel extreme acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) caused coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), which infected over 4.5 million people in 213 countries and was declared a pandemic the World Health Organization on March 11, 2020. There have also been claims that SARS-CoV-2 can be found in biopsy and stool specimens, and it has been suggested that fecal-oral transmission is possible. Gastrointestinal symptoms have been identified in 17.6% of COVID-19 patients, and transmission through gastrointestinal secretions is possible in this community of patients. There was confusion and anxiety during the early stages of the pandemic, which led to a decrease in endoscopic procedures. Endoscopy has been restricted to emergency procedures in many hospitals. Endoscopy units showed an increase in comparison to the baseline. During the COVID-19 pandemic, gross endoscopy volumes were reduced by 83% on average. Upper endoscopy procedures (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, ultrasonography, and esophagogastroduodenoscopy) were reduced by 82%, whereas lower endoscopy procedures were decreased by 85% (colonoscopy and flexible sigmoidoscopy).

Due to current constraints, endoscopy units in India perform less than 10% of their normal volumes. There are few resources to meet existing international standards, such as using negative pressure rooms and PPE. Furthermore, there has been a significant economic, emotional, and social effect, as well as uncountable ongoing suffering. Endoscopy services are available to patients, and restricting them can result in considerable harm such as delayed diagnosis, poor outcomes, and psychological distress. Alternative solutions are needed to keep the programs running. The proportion of endoscopy units reporting infected staff has been low in general.
