Market Report Description

The Global Disposable Endoscopes Market size is expected to reach $2.7 billion by 2025, rising at a market growth of 18.7% CAGR during the forecast period. An endoscope is an instrument comprised of a light fiber and a camera-connected image fiber that captures high-resolution images within the body and sends them to an attached device for viewing. Modern endoscopes are completely versatile, offering deeper visibility into the inner body and capturing images for a clearer view in high definition.

Disposable Endoscopes Market Size

Disposable endoscopes provide single-time use facilities and do not require sterilization or cleaning procedures that nullify contamination chances. The European Union sponsored a project called 'Design of a Disposable Use Endoscopy Tool' (DUET) in 2014. It focused on researching and designing single-use endoscopes to mitigate contamination scenarios. A research conducted by the Association of PeriOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) revealed that, in 2016, five reusable uteroscopes detected gram-positive bacterial contamination.

The global demand for disposable endoscopes is driven by an increased rate of nosocomial infections due to the use of contaminated or tainted endoscopes and recent technical developments in the endoscope field. A wide range of factors contributes to the growth of the disposable endoscopes market. These include an increase in global demand for cost-effective endoscopy procedures, a rise in US Food and Drug Administration approvals, and enhancement of favourable government legislation on disposable endoscopes. In addition, an increase in people's understanding of infection induced by infected reusable endoscopes, an increase in health care spending and an increase in the incidence of acquired healthcare-associated infections propel the global demand for disposable endoscopes.
