Frost Radar: Global Endoscopy Market, 2020
全球微創手術的需求有急速增加趨勢，因此導致這些手術所使用的創新的內視鏡設備的需求中長期性劇增。還有預計不得不清除COVID-19大流行所影響延期的 "選擇性手術" 的積壓。微創手術由於能大幅度縮短患者的住院時間，最小限度控制術後的併發症，受到患者和醫生的雙方喜愛。
A Benchmarking System to Spark Companies to Action-Innovation that Fuels New Deal Flow and Growth Pipelines
Globally, the demand for minimally invasive surgeries is trending upward at a quick pace, so consequently the demand for innovative endoscopy devices used in these procedures is anticipated to surge in the mid-to-long term. Moreover, health systems will be forced to clear the backlogs of "elective surgeries" that were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Specifically, the amount of surgeries involving the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, urology, and gynecology will flood healthcare systems once the world recovers from the pandemic, thus leading to increased use of endoscopy devices. Because minimally invasive surgeries substantially reduce a patient's time in hospital and minimize post-operative complications, this approach is preferred by both patients and doctors.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued safety recommendations to use partially or fully-disposable duodenoscopes; that, in addition to the awareness COVID-19 created about infection prevention have boosted the development of single-use duodenoscopes and endoscopes. The FDA's recommendation is based on the fact that certain endoscope devices come with complicated designs and hard-to-clean components, which pose contamination risk from one patient to another if not correctly reprocessed and sterilized.
To supply innovative endoscopic technologies, leading market players aim to differentiate themselves with disruptive breakthroughs and distinctive market expansion strategies. Novel endoscope types are gaining increased attention, such as capsule administered, artificial intelligence (AI)-powered, and robotic-assisted. These advancements effectively propel the global endoscopy devices market by setting new standards of care delivery and enhanced patient health outcomes.
Frost & Sullivan's research indicates that the global endoscopy market, which is currently crowded by traditional rigid and reprocessed endoscopes, will soon experience a major shift toward flexible single-use devices. The technological innovations are expected to introduce major transformation to the market and create new standards of safety, efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and enhanced quality of care.
