The global gastrointestinal endoscopy devices market stood at nearly US$ 4.7 Billion in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period 2022-2028. Gastrointestinal endoscopy devices are medical devices that are used to perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures inside the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. It is a minimally invasive treatment that is used to look for ulcers, digestive system bleeding, aberrant colon growths, and other abdominal and gastrointestinal problems.
Numerous GI illnesses have arisen as a result of changing lifestyles combined with improper eating habits and increased junk food consumption, which has increased the need for effective diagnosis through devices such as gastrointestinal endoscopy devices.
Furthermore, a growing aging population with prolonged medical issues such as GI disorders and an increase in the prevalence of colon and rectum cancer due to sedentary lifestyles, obesity, and cigarette use are driving the growth of the gastrointestinal endoscopic devices market. Additionally, growing consciousness of weight, particularly among women, leads to weight-loss treatment choices such as banding and bypass surgery, both of which use gastrointestinal endoscopic devices, which is also likely to boost the market growth. However, the gastrointestinal endoscopy market growth will be hampered by high endoscopy procedure costs, a limited number of trained professionals, and limited reimbursement policies.
Robot- and AI-assisted gastrointestinal endoscopy devices will propel the market growth
Significant GI device companies are focusing on the Blackbox with algorithms such as convolutional neural networks being developed to analyze endoscopic videos and detect/classify abnormal tissue areas, allowing endoscopists to perform better in removing suspicious polyps and preventing colorectal cancer. Computer-aided detection systems (CADe) enhance accuracy in recognizing precancerous spots and places where biopsy is unnecessary by using deep convoluted neural network (DCNN) technology.
Current AI systems are mostly focused on enhancing endoscopist accuracy and dependability, however, future technologies will also help to minimize paperwork load and give real-time optical biopsies, which will free up time that can be better spent on the physician-patient engagement. Robots for various gastrointestinal illnesses are being developed such as robotic capsule endoscopes, autonomous locomotive robotic colonoscopes, etc. Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection (ESD) and colonoscopy are the two key areas where robotic endoscopy is being researched as it provides ease of access and flexibility and is less time-consuming.
North America leads the market due to the increase in the consumption of fast food
North America is the leading market for gastrointestinal endoscopy devices market owing to the high demand for effective diagnostic tools to address the rising GI disorders. Digestive illnesses are the leading cause of hospitalization in the US, which is further attributed to the increasing consumption of fast food and the rise in obesity prevalence. Developed healthcare infrastructure coupled with the significant per capita healthcare expenditure and presence of leading industry players are facilitating the regional market growth. Moreover, the increased adoption of advanced technologies and the growing demand for minimally invasive surgeries to lower total healthcare costs are also driving the market growth in North America.
Rising investments in endoscopy facilities have been directly impacting the growth of the gastrointestinal endoscopy market in Latin America and Eastern Europe. The UK has one of the most advanced healthcare technologies across Europe due to continuous innovations in the healthcare sector and the increased adoption of digital health. Therefore, it has growth potential for the gastrointestinal endoscopy devices market. The Asia Pacific region is also witnessing technological advancements in the healthcare sector and government initiatives in countries like India and China are boosting market growth for gastrointestinal endoscopic devices market.
