The global endoscopy market is expected to reach approximately $43 billion by 2019 growing at around 7.0% CAGR from 2014 to 2019. The major drivers for the market growth are aging population, increase in cancer, diabetes, and obesity patients along with a rise in patient's preference for minimal invasive surgeries. Additionally, shorter stay in hospitals, speedy recovery, and reduced medical budget are expected to enhance the endoscopy market growth. However, the shortage of qualified endoscopic technicians, high cost of initial investment, contamination risk and patient safety of endoscopic procedures pose a threat for the market growth.

Endoscopy is a minimal invasive procedure to view the internal organs of the body. Endoscopic procedures are used to retrieve samples for biopsies, to remove foreign objects inside the body and to perform keyhole surgeries. The global endoscopy market is classified by product and application types. Rigid, flexible, capsule and video endoscopes are the major types of endoscope products. Depending on the medical applications the market is segmented into arthroscopy, colonoscopy, laproscopy, gastro intestinal endoscopy, bronchoscopy, Urology endoscopy, and gynecology endoscopy.

Advancement in the field of endoscopic devices with accurate visibility, high definition imaging and documentation, ease of handling and cleaning the devices and growing demand in emerging countries brings in more opportunities for the endoscopy market.

Although U.S. has a high market share, there is a growing demand for endoscopy market in the emerging countries such as India and China.
