Analyst Review

The utilization of flexible endoscopes is expected to witness significant growth, owing to increase in prevalence of chronic diseases. Moreover, flexible endoscope devices have piqued the interest of healthcare providers, due to benefits offered by these devices for diagnosis and treatment of clinical disorders along with increase in indications for minimally invasive procedures. Remarkable technological advancements have been witnessed in visualization & navigation systems to improve visualization during screening of chronic ailments.

Surge in incidence of chronic diseases, technological advancements, and increase in emphasis on early prevention of diseases are some of the factors that majorly drive the growth of the market. However, high cost of premium flexible endoscopes and dearth of experienced endoscopists hinder the market growth.

The incidence rate of chronic diseases in patients has drastically increased in the recent years with the shift of the Asian population in the geriatric age group. This factor along with increase in stress in daily life augments the growth of the flexible endoscope market. In addition, flexible endoscope manufacturers and distributors have focused on expanding their presence in emerging economies to strengthen their market penetration.
