Disposable Endoscopes Market Overview:

A single-use device, often known as a disposable device, is designed to be used on a single patient during a single surgery. It is not intended to be reused (cleaned, disinfected/sterilized) on another patient. Endoscopes are flexible plastic tubes with an illuminated lens system that are used to examine and diagnose a range of illnesses and ailments inside the human body. Endoscopy can be performed to obtain tissue samples (biopsies) in order to screen for illnesses and ailments such as anemia, bleeding, inflammation, diarrhea, and digestive malignancies. Endoscopy is also used to identify GERD, ulcers, cancer connections, inflammation or swelling, precancerous abnormalities, celiac disease, esophageal strictures or constriction, and blockages. Endoscopes are utilized by healthcare practitioners in specialties such as gastroenterology, otolaryngology, orthopedics, and gynecology for surgical and non-surgical treatments. Rising concern regarding possible risks of contamination or contracting infections in hospital services due to the use of certain reusable equipment and machines for internal examination in patients is increasing preference for the adoption of single-use/ disposable endoscopes and driving the growth of the disposable endoscopes market. Single-use devices, such as single-use and flexible disposable endoscopes, are gaining popularity in a variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures. Additionally, the expenses of treating post-operation infections can be greatly decreased, and patients can be discharged from point-of-care centers, hospitals, and clinics immediately after the treatment. Additionally, reusable devices incur damage or wear over time, but single-use endoscopes do not. As a result, the disposable endoscopes demand is rapidly increasing and driving the disposable endoscopes market growth during the forecast period. In addition, increasingly stringent government regulations related to patient safety and the utilization of medical devices and medical equipment, penalties or litigations arising from hospital-acquired infections, and rising awareness about the availability of disposable and single-use endoscopes are driving the market growth. Fewer infections caused by the use of disposable equipment in hospitals help to lower the likelihood of needing Medicare. Additionally, the use of disposable and single-use endoscopes requires less training and competence for illness diagnosis, which supports the disposable endoscopes market growth. High risks such as cross-contamination, and requirement of skilled labor, the cost of maintenance, and the potential of mechanical failure associated with reusable medical equipment and devices are other significant contributors to the rising adoption of single-use/disposable endoscopy globally and driving the disposable endoscopes market revenue growth during the forecast period.

Disposable Endoscopes Market Dynamics:

Rising adoption of disposable endoscopes all around the world The high functionality and good performance of disposable endoscopes are expected to generate product demand across the end users. Endoscopic or minimally invasive or keyhole procedures are the future of surgical procedures. The prevalence of chronic illnesses and their identification necessitates diagnostics, which opens up the possibility of using disposable endoscopes. This is expected to generate lucrative product demand. This is mostly due to affordable costs and technical improvements, both of which are profitable factors for inventors and producers of innovative products. Endoscopes are used in a variety of medical procedures, including ENT, pulmonary, urological, cardiology, and joint surgery. As a result, these devices are widely utilized around the world and increase the disposable endoscopes market revenue growth during the forecast period. Growing prevalence of infectious diseases The development and adoption of single-use, or disposable, medical equipment is becoming more common. One of the primary reasons for this transition has been to decrease the logistics necessary to disinfect reusable equipment and to avoid the spread of infectious illnesses. Concerns regarding infection transmission with reused endoscopes have increased interest in single-use, disposable endoscopes. Single-use sheaths are intended to keep pollutants away from reusable endoscope components. Despite the lower costs associated with reusable devices, the Covid-19 outbreak had a negative influence on numerous medical device businesses in 2020. As a result, the sales of disposable endoscopes defied this trend and experienced significant year-over-year (YOY) growth. This is due to the fact that the utilization of disposable devices reduces the transmission of infectious illnesses. For example, Ambu's disposable aScope bronchoscope sales surged by 50% year on year in 2020 because of increased demand for bronchoscopes as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak. Infection transmission via gastrointestinal endoscopy is a major consideration. The biggest issue in using duodenoscopes is due to the mechanical features of the scope design. Sterilization of the scope might fail even with high-level disinfection. As a result, the Food and Drug Administration has recommended the use of single-use endoscopes. Clinical research demonstrated that both reusable and single-use scopes had the same effectiveness, with single-use scopes having advantages in terms of infection control, cost savings, and the convenience of reprocessing. There are only a few problems remaining to address. Except in some cases where SUDs are preferable, reusable duodenoscopes with removable/disposable endcaps are adequate. The rising prevalence of infectious diseases is expected to increase product demand and drives the disposable endoscopes market growth during the forecast period. High adoption of low-cost video capsules Traditional endoscopes have a significant risk of recurring infections, whether acquired endogenously or exogenously. These pathogenic pathogens can contaminate endoscopic equipment as a result of incorrect reprocessing or even during a surgical procedure, either from the patient to the surgeon or vice versa. The use of disposable endoscopes decreases the risk of these issues. Additionally, when paired with traditional endoscopic procedures, the introduction of low-cost video capsules or nanorobots that may be used for treatment, biopsy, or tagging is expected to increase positive procedural rates and drives the disposable endoscopes market growth during the forecast period. Stringent regulation on the use of disposable endoscopes Disposable endoscopes have grown rapidly in the global healthcare sector in the past decade. However, the technology seems to be an additional investment for healthcare institutions that currently use traditional endoscopes, which may restrict the disposable endoscopes market growth. In addition, as disposable endoscopes are meant for single use, they contribute to large volumes of medical waste, especially, plastic waste. According to the World Health Organization (2018), standard, non-hazardous waste accounts for approximately 85% of total waste generated by healthcare operations. The remaining 15% is a dangerous substance that might be poisonous, radioactive, or contagious. Given the recent discovery of plastic microparticles in human excrement and blood, this might pose an environmental risk in the future. As a result, governments across the world are implementing stringent regulations on the utilization of disposable endoscopes as it had a negative impact on the environment. Europe recently addressed this issue by outlawing single-use plastics. As a result, stringent restrictions on the use of disposable endoscopes as a result of plastic bans in high and low-income countries may hamper the disposable endoscope market growth.
