Endoscopic Insufflators Market - Introduction

Accurate detection of gastrointestinal lumen is required for safe use of endoscopes and better visualization of the mucosa. Usage of room air for lumen detention could have disadvantages such as poor absorption of room air by gastrointestinal tract. On the other hand, CO2 is rapidly absorbed by GI mucosa. This has led to an increase in the use of CO2 insufflation in endoscopic procedures. Endoscopic insufflators are widely used in a number of procedures such as gastroscopy and colonoscopy. These devices offer support for endoscopic examination and treatment. CO2 insufflators offer various advantages such as reduction of abdominal pain and discomfort, and helps avoid serious complications in case of perforation. Another major advantage of using insufflators is increase in patient turnaround time, improvement in cecal intubation rates, and quick recovery.

Endoscopic Insufflators Market - Dynamics

The global endoscopic insufflators market is anticipated to be driven by increase in the number of endoscopic procedures, rise in demand for endoscopy devices, and surge in awareness about the advantages of using CO2 insufflators over air insufflators during gastroscopy and colonoscopy. Additionally, increase in import of endoscopy devices in Europe, technological advancements in the field of endoscopy, and rise in the number of research and development activities are expected to boost the growth of the global endoscopic insufflators market.

Demand for Patient Safety & Comfort

High demand for patient safety and comfort increases the adoption of minimally invasive procedures. Endoscopy insufflators, especially CO2 insufflators, are proven to be safe, as the CO2 gets absorbed by gastrointestinal tract lumen around 150 times faster than normal air. This also provides comfort to patients post colonoscopy and other long time endoscopy procedures.

Increase in Demand and Import of Endoscopy Devices - Key Driver of Endoscopic Insufflators Market

Demand for endoscopic insufflators is projected to increase in the next few years. Rise in import of endoscopy devices in Europe presents significant opportunities for the market players in the European Union. According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, import of endoscopy devices in Germany and Austria increased significantly in the past five years. Japan and Switzerland were the leading suppliers of endozoic devices to Germany and Austria in 2014. Along with imports, production of these devices gained pace from 2010 to 2014, with average annual increase of 9.8% during 2010–2014.

North America - Largest Market for Endoscopic Insufflators

The endoscopic insufflators market in North America is driven by increase in the number of manufacturers of endoscopy devices and instruments, adoption of innovative solutions in gastroscopy & colonoscopy, and rise in the number of colonoscopies. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2012, 15 million colonoscopies were performed in the U.S.
