Endoscopy Equipment – An Emerging Market with Attractive Growth Opportunities

The global  endoscopy equipment market  is projected to reach USD 35.2 billion from 2024 from an estimated USD 25.6 billion in 2019 and a CAGR of 6.6%. The growth of this market is driven by the growth of endoscopy, growing investments, funds, and grants, rising numbers of hospitals and increasing hospital investments in endoscopy facilities, and advancements. However, unfavorable healthcare reforms in the US and the high cost of endoscopy procedures and equipment and limited reimbursement in developing countries are expected to restrain the growth of this market. 

The North America region is expected to witness the highest growth in the market during the forecast period. The favorable reimbursement scenario in the US, rising incidence of cancer, increasing investments by hospitals and new endoscopic equipment, and growing research activities to improve endoscopy are driving the growth of the North American market.
