Optical Fibers In Endoscopy Market Research, 2030

The global optical fibers in endoscopy market was valued at $869.02 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $1.5 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2021 to 2030.

Endoscopy is a medical procedure to obtain high-resolution microscopic images of internal organs of the body. Endoscopes are made up of dense bundles of optical fibers, which are made up of glass or plastic. They ensure efficient light transmission during endoscopic procedures. These fibers transmit light into the patient’s body and enable physician to view images of internal body structures for early detection of diseases. These fibers are used in various applications which includes internet, cable television, computer networking, automotive industry, and medicine and research. An endoscope consists of 2-3 optical cables, of which one carries light into the patient's body while the other carries reflected light (image of patient’s body) back up to the physician's eyepiece, which is then displayed on TV monitor. Optical fibers are long, thin strands that are used to transmit light signals over long distances. The fiber is made up of two concentric cylindrical cores. The inner core is surrounded by a concentric core where total internal reflection takes place and is known as cladding (protective sheath). The material used for currently commercialized fibers (core and cladding) include pure glass (SiO2), plastic, or a combination of both. Choosing the kind of material for optical fiber depends on a variety of factors such as quality and economics.

Growth of the global optical fibers in endoscopy market is majorly driven by rise in number of aged individuals who are at high risk of developing chronic disorders such as cancer and neurological and gastrointestinal diseases. In addition, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the updated Globocan data of 2020, an estimate of around 19.3 million cases of cancer were recorded. Thus, rise in number of cancer patients increase the demand for optical fibers in endoscopy which is anticipated to foster the growth of the optical fibers in endoscopy market. Moreover, technological advancements of new products, patient emphasis for early detection of diseases, rise in global prevalence of targeted diseases propel the market growth.  Furthermore, the use of optical fibers offers improved image resolution as well as the ability to visualize difficult to reach areas.  According to the European Journal of Cancer, in 2020, there were about 520,000 cases of colorectal cancer in Europe. Thus, rising burden of cancer cases is anticipated to boost the growth of the market. Furthermore, increase in number of product approvals is expected to provide remunerative opportunities for the expansion of the global optical fibers in endoscopy market during the forecast period.

The COVID-19 outbreak is anticipated to have a positive impact to fuel the growth of the global optical fibers in endoscopy market. According to the National Library of Medicine, a survey conducted by an endoscopists covers all the aspects of daily performance in gastrointestinal endoscopy units. Around 67.35% of endoscopy procedures were performed. Thus, rise in number of gastrointestinal endoscopy procedures has increased the usage of optical fibers in endoscopy, which is anticipated to drive the optical fibers in endoscopy market growth during the forecast period. However, the market is restrained by high cost of the procedure.

The global optical fibers in endoscopy market size is segmented into material, type, and region. Depending on material, the market is divided into glass optical fibers in endoscopy and plastic optical fibers in endoscopy.

By type, the market is classified into rigid endoscopy and flexible endoscopy.

Region wise, the market is analyzed across North America (the U.S., Canada, and Mexico), Europe (Germany, France, the UK, Italy, Spain, and rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (Japan, China, Australia, India, South Korea, and rest of Asia-Pacific), and LAMEA (Brazil, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and rest of LAMEA).

Segment Review

Plastic optic fibers (POF) in endoscopy segment would witness the fastest growth, registering a CAGR of 7.7% during the forecast period.

Depending on material, the glass optical fibers in endoscopy market share segment dominated the market in 2020, and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period, owing to increase in R&D activities in the pharmaceutical & medical device industry, rise in demand for optical fibers in endoscopy, and surge in adoption of endoscopy devices by large number of key players.Glass optical fiber is an optical fiber made of glass. As it is a delicate type of optical fiber, it cannot be cut, or repaired, has less resistance to flexibility and is prone to accidental breakage. Glass fiber optic cables are extremely versatile and robust and available in a mix of configurations, end fittings and adapter types. However, this kind of optical fiber is generally ideal for hostile environments. Even when exposed to mechanical stress, high temperatures, or chemical substances, it performs normal operation. However, the plastic optical fibers in endoscopy segment is expected to witness considerable growth of optical fibers in endoscopy market opportunity during the forecast period, owing to increase in number of colorectal cancer and rise in number of key players for development of optical fibers in endoscopy devices in the medical device industry.
