Gastroscopy Devices Market

Gastroscopy is a type of endoscopy performed for diagnosis of diseases pertaining to esophagus, stomach, and upper part of small intestine. It is also called upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. It is one of the most important discoveries in the field of medical science. Esophagoscope was also a type of endoscopy that was used for diagnosis and treatment procedures of esophagus. Gastroscopy has replaced esophagoscopes completely. The only difference between esophagoscope and gastroscope is the length of gastroscope that is longer than esophagoscopes. Gastroscopy can also be performed to detect cancers. This procedure is recommended to diagnose problems related to the esophagus or stomach. The device has a light and a camera at the end of the probe that is used to see the esophagus, upper intestine and stomach clearly. It is also used to investigate problems related to swallowing, ulcers, and blockage in esophagus. This procedure allows practitioners to study the mucous membrane of the stomach. Gastroscopy are broadly classified into two types namely diagnostic gastroscopy used to diagnose or confirm diagnosis and treatment gastroscopy for therapeutic purposes.  Esophagus cancer is the eighth-most common cancer in the world. As per the report of World Cancer Research Fund International, there were around 456,000 new esophagus cancer cases diagnosed in 2012. Gastroscopy is considered as the most preferred option for screening of esophagus cancer and polyps by most gastroenterologists and thus, the gastrointestinal endoscopy devices market is projected to witness significant traction in the foreseeable future.

High Incidence of Esophageal Cancer Fueling Gastroscopy Devices Market Growth

Esophageal cancer is of two types namely, adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Esophageal cancer can occur due to various reasons such as gene type that includes gene mutations or damage involved in cell divisions. As per results of an independent study, overweight and obesity increases the risk of esophageal cancer by 48% per 5 BMI units. Polyp detection rate of esophagus and stomach depend upon the proportion of mucosal surface diagnosed and correlates to time dedicated for diagnosis. Gastroscopes consist of a flexible tube with a high definition camera at the end of the probe. The quality of camera defines the quality of diagnosis. The long length of device is used to examine the complete length of the esophagus.

Gastroscopy Devices Market: Drivers and Restraints

The global gastrointestinal endoscopy devices market is expected to be fueled by advancements in endoscopy technology. Key drivers of the market are increasing cases of esophageal cancer and polyps, growing ageing population, family history of cancer, and changing lifestyle. Increasing government initiatives to diagnose and treat early stage cancers are also expected to fuel gastrointestinal endoscopy devices market. For instance, in 2014, The European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) and United European Gastroenterology (UEG) created a community of endoscopy services across Europe, collaborating with each other to provide high quality, safe, accurate, patient-centered and accessible endoscopic care. The lack of awareness, dearth of experienced professionals, lack of reimbursement policies, and increasing cases associated with bio-dirt is expected to hinder growth of the market.

Gastroscopy Devices Market Taxonomy

The gastroscopy devices market is classified on the basis of product type and end user.

On the basis of product type, the global gastroscopy devices market is segmented into the following:

  • Flexible Video Gastroscope
  • Flexible Non-video Gastroscope

On the basis of end user, the global gastroscopy devices market is segmented into the following:

  • Hospitals
  • Ambulatory Surgical Centers
  • Clinics

Gastroscopy Devices Market: Overview

Technological advancements in gastroscopy technique are expected to drive growth of the market for gastroscopy device, as these significantly improve detection rate as compared to other conventional procedures. Practitioners prefer using flexible gastroscope over non-flexible gastroscopes due to high quality, less breakage problems and high illumination for better imaging provided by the former. Increasing awareness among practitioners of using the advanced gastroscopy over white light traditional gastroscopy is showing a significant growth towards flexible video gastroscopy. Increasing cases of biodirt provides opportunity to gastroscopy manufacturers to introduce products with innovative features to avoid such cases of infections. Hospital end user segment is expected to remain dominant in the market over the foreseeable future. 

Key players operating the gastroscopy devices market include Olympus, Karl Storz, Sono Scape, Endomed, Medigus, Fujifilm Holdings Corporation, and Huger.

Key Developments

  1. Major companies in the market are involved in different business strategies such as business expansion, in order to gain competitive edge in the market. For instance, in November 2018, SonoScope Medical Corporation, a China-based endoscopy equipment manufacturer, launched its corporate brand at ISGCON 2018, the 59th Annual Conference of the Indian Society of Gastronomy held at Kerala, India. This expansion will help the company to grow its business in India.
  2. Major companies in the market are involved in different business strategies such as collaboration, agreement, and partnership, in order to enhance their market presence.
