Endoscope Camera Heads Market: Overview
Endoscope camera head is a visualization system used for medical diagnosis. It helps in viewing the internal body parts. Endoscope camera head provides HD image of the body which is transferred to the screen for viewing the image. Endoscopy procedures are performed by inserting a rod shaped telescope called endoscope and specialized instruments through small incisions in the body. These procedures can be diagnostic as well as operative in nature, and are used in a number of medical surgeries. Endoscopy procedures are minimally invasive, and hence have obvious advantages over open surgeries. Lesser scars, quick recovery, shorter hospital stay, reduced blood loss, and minimal chances of infection are the key factors driving demand for endoscopy surgeries.
Endoscope Camera Heads Market: Key Trends
The global endoscope camera heads market is driven by rise in prevalence of intestinal disorders and increase in the geriatric population. Moreover, surge in technological innovations and investment by public and private sectors for the advancement of health care are projected to boost the market during the forecast period. For instance, multinational companies such as Panasonic, Cannon, and Sony have made significant investments in the endoscopy market in the past few years. These conglomerates have invested in companies that already have presence in the endoscopy market. In 2014, Covidien completed the acquisition of Given Imaging Ltd., a leader in capsule endoscopy with its flagship product PillCam. Additionally, increase in the number of surgeries such as urological, cardiovascular, neurological, and arthroscopy is expected to drive the market during the forecast period. Endoscopes are used in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to urinary tract such as incontinence, frequent urinary tract infection, kidney stone, ureteropelvic junction obstruction, urethral strictures, tumors, and cancerous growth in the urological system. In 2012, the National Cancer Institute estimated total number of 74,690 new cases and 15,580 deaths related to bladder cancer which is the major condition in urological cancer. However, high cost of these devices and shortage of trained surgeons are expected to restrain the global endoscope camera heads market in the next few years. Government funding in emerging countries is likely to create lucrative opportunities in the market during the forecast period.
