Endoscope Reprocessing Market Research Report Provides Crucial Industry Insights. Industry to Witness a Steady Growth in Near Future.

The endoscope reprocessing market is projected to reach USD 3.2 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 9.0% from 2021 to 2026. The increasing preference for endoscopic procedures, high risk of endoscope-associated infections, growing geriatric population and the subsequent increase of endoscopic procedures, and increasing emphasis on improving reprocessing guidelines by healthcare facilities in the market during the forecast period.

Driver: High risk of endoscope-associated infections

Endoscope-associated infections due to contaminated endoscopes continue to be reported worldwide. Although endoscope-associated infections are, duodenoscope-related, recent reports also discuss outbreaks related to gastroscopes, colonoscopes, and bronchoscopes. Despite adequate measures to conduct the reprocessing of endoscopes, cases of infections caused due to the use of endoscopes have been significantly high.

Recent studies have assessed duodenoscope contamination incidence rates ranging from 0.3% to 30%, although linear echoendoscopes with a similar complex design, gastroscope, and colonoscopes can also be contaminated. Klebsiella pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa are frequently involved in endoscopy-related outbreaks, probably due to their persistence in biofilms. Subject to heavy wear and tear, damaged parts such as biopsy channels are vulnerable to biofilm formation.

Emerging economies in the APAC region present lucrative investment opportunities for multinational infection control companies to offshore their business operations to these markets. For instance, in September 2018, Ecolab inaugurated the Greater China Healthcare Innovation and Customer Experience Center in Shanghai. In October 2017, the company expanded its presence across the APAC region by establishing new headquarters in Singapore. Expansions in emerging markets are driving the uptake of endoscope reprocessing products in the medical device manufacturing industry in these countries, thereby providing growth opportunities for the product manufacturers and service providers.
