Endoscope Reprocessing Market: Overview
Endoscopy-related infections are a worldwide concern for healthcare industry, with emergent risks propelling the need for robust processing protocols. Endoscopes are used extensively in the management—screening, diagnosis, and treatment—of a wide range of gastrointestinal (GI) diseases. The efficacy has grown continuously with technological advancements in designs and the materials used in the equipment. Despite this, the reprocessing protocols pose a major concern for flexible endoscopes, since the past few years have seen contamination in endoscopes key reason for rise in nosocomial infections. Need to address the concern has driven the evolution of endoscope reprocessing market. Several countries have thus gravitated toward evidence-based guidelines on endoscope reprocessing. In this regard, the demand for automated endoscope reprocessors has gained traction for high-level disinfection (HLD), further spurring investments by medical device manufacturers and OEMs.
The study on the endoscope reprocessing market scrutinizes various key trends and product developments, adoption trends in various healthcare settings, regional growth dynamics, and an in-depth competitive landscape. The report presents a detailed insight into the demand dynamics related to test strips, detergents and wipes, and automated equipment.

Endoscope Reprocessing Market: Current Prospects and Future Avenues
Past few years have seen rise in infectious disease outbreaks worldwide, especially multi-drug resistant bacteria. Variation within the flexible endoscope reprocessing practices has brought forth some genuine concerns of endoscopy related infections. The lack of uniformity of practices for endoscope reprocessing has led to rise in concerns of infectious disease outbreaks, arising out some of the glaring laspses in reprocessing of duodenoscopes, bronchoscopes, and ureteroscopes, including in automated reprocessing processes.
Updates in guidelines in high-level disinfection of flexible endoscopes have spurred the number of standardized education and training programs, propelling the expansion of the endoscope reprocessing market. Complexity of designs in duodenoscopes is another aspect has intensified the need for reprocessing practices worldwide, thereby propelling the expansion of avenues in the endoscope reprocessing market. Various high-income countries have seen growing number of training programs for flexible endoscope reprocessing, engendering the value chain in the endoscope reprocessing market. Some of the key methods used are microbial cultures and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) test. The growing number of dedicated endoscope reprocessing professionals is a key trend bolstering the demand.
