Esophageal stethoscope is a device which has a thin elastic tube attached to a regular stethoscope mostly by a small plastic adaptor and is used for evaluating and monitoring heart sound or respiratory sound during surgeries. Esophageal stethoscopes are harmless to patients and can be easily introduced in the body of patients.
Global Esophageal Stethoscope Market - Impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to hamper growth of the global esophageal stethoscope market, owing to disruption in supply of pharmaceuticals materials due to quarantine and lack of labor and raw materials. As the connection between regional warehouses is not smooth, the transportation of raw materials between regions cannot be carried out successfully. Therefore, shortage of raw materials has affected the supply chain of the global esophageal stethoscope market.
Decline in surgeries such as cardiac surgeries during COVID-19 pandemic is expected to hamper growth of the global esophageal stethoscope market, For instance, according to an article published In March, 2020 by National Center of Biotechnology Information, many surgical procedures were canceled or postponed to make space in hospitals for COVID-19 patients during the COVID – 19 pandemic. During COVID-19 pandemic preference were given to patients suffering from coronavirus disease. This is expected to hamper growth of the global esophageal stethoscope market.
Global esophageal stethoscope market is estimated to be valued at US$ 21.25 Mn in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.1% over the forecast period (2022-2030)

Market players are involved in advancing the technology for the development of innovative stethoscope, which is expected to drive growth of the global esophageal stethoscope market.
Market players are developing innovative stethoscope and this is expected to drive growth of the global esophageal stethoscope market, over the forecast period. For instance, in October 2020, 3M, a conglomerate company, launched smart digital stethoscope 3M Littmann CORE Digital Stethoscope, that allows improvement in lung and heart disease detection. It offers active noise cancellation to reduce disturbing background sounds in operating rooms as well as visualization of sound data during auscultation, a listening to the internal sounds of the body. The advancement for the improvement of technology in stethoscope including esophageal stethoscope is expected to drive growth of the esophageal stethoscope market.

|Restraints & Challenges:||
Increasing research and development activities by researchers for the development in esophageal stethoscope is expected to drive the growth of global esophageal stethoscope market, over the forecast period.
Research and development activities is projected to increase the production of new esophageal stethoscope, which is expected to drive the global esophageal stethoscope market growth. For instance, according to an article published in National Center for Biotechnology Information on March 7, 2020, a researcher has developed a wireless electronic esophageal stethoscope aimed for continued listening of heart and lung sounds in anesthetized patients during operation. The device consists of a transmitter which amplifies and transmits the developed sound signals via a frequency modulation transmitter and receiver demodulates, amplifies, and delivers the received signal to a headphone to be heard by the anesthesiologist.
Global Esophageal Stethoscope Market – Restraints
Complications in the use of Esophageal Stethoscope are expected to hamper the global esophageal stethoscope market growth. For instance, according to an article published by Anaesth Pain & Intensive care, an international journal, in December, 2019, by esophageal stethoscope heart and breath sounds can be constantly monitored and any obstruction of endotracheal tube (ETT) can be readily detected. But, the detection of one lung ventilation due to incidental endobronchial ETT placement during surgical positioning and tissue handling may be difficult. Esophageal stethoscope placement also shows complications such as incidental tracheal and bronchial insertion causing hypoxia, hoarseness, oropharyngeal trauma or bleeding.
Global Esophageal Stethoscope Market – Regional Analysis
On the basis of region, the global esophageal stethoscope market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.
Among regions, North America esophageal stethoscope market is expected to hold a dominant position during the forecast period, owing to increasing prevalence of eye disorders. For instance, according to data updated on June 9, 2020 by Center for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 12 million people of 40 years and above in the U.S. have vision impairment. For the eye surgery, to monitor the heart or breathe sound esophageal stethoscope is used by the anesthesiologist during surgery, hence increase prevalence in eye disorders is expected to drive market of esophageal stethoscope in North America.
Furthermore, Europe is also estimated to witness significant growth in the global esophageal stethoscope market, owing to increasing prevalence of doctors in the country. For instance, according to Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Health Statistics 2020, between 2008 and 2018, the number of doctors has increased in all European countries, the number increased from 3.3 doctors per 1000 population in 2008 to 3.8 in 2018. The increase in doctors such as surgeons, dermatologists, etc. is expected to increase the use of esophageal stethoscope for different operating procedures.
