According to a recent research study conducted by Persistence Market Research (PMR), the global sales for automated endoscope reprocessors is likely to witness a growth in CAGR of ~6% by the end of the forecast period. The surge in the number of endoscopic procedures globally and the increasing preference for minimally-invasive procedures are  anticipated to cause a boost the growth of the automated endoscope reprocessor market.

The increasing awareness in the larger population demographic and the advantages of minimally invasive endoscopic procedures is likely to have a positive impact on the automated endoscope reprocessor market, even as healthcare industry shifts towards patient-centric care.

The advent of minimally invasive procedures have reshaped the healthcare industry drastically, with patient preference increasingly shifting away from conventional surgeries and procedures. The benefits of minimally invasive procedures such as shorter hospital stays and quicker recovery processes specifically apply to endoscopic surgeries, where automated endoscope reprocessors find application in the real time disinfection process. In recent years, there has also been a rise in hospital acquired infections resulting in a sense of urgency in reducing infection and contamination.  This is expected to have a significant positive impact on the growth of the automated endoscope reprocessor market.

Automated Endoscope Reprocessor Market: Push for Innovation in Developed Countries

This report by PMR, on the global automated endoscope reprocessor market, North America occupies the largest share of about 37% in 2019 and this figure is likely to remain unchanged during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the widespread adoption of automated endoscope reprocessors in developed countries, which has a positive impact on the development of the market.

There has been a push for research & development for newer and more efficient practices and processes that improve patient safety and eliminate cross-contamination which is opening up opportunities for manufacturers in these regions. To cater to these growing requirements, players are increasingly incorporating newer technologies to enhance the operational efficiency of automated endoscope reprocessors. For instance, the advent of pass through automated endoscope reprocessors has transformed the overall process of endoscope cleaning, which has had a positive impact on the evolution of the automated endoscope reprocessor market.

Automated Endoscopes Viewed as the Efficient Alternatives to Manual Cleaning Methods

This study by PMR finds that with the popularity endoscopic procedures increasing, conventional manual methods of cleaning are often considered to be tedious and inefficient, which may result in the improper cleaning of devices that could cause cross contamination. Considered better and more efficient, automated endoscope reprocessors are gaining popularity as standard procedures for decontamination of endoscopes. This coupled with other advantages of automated endoscope reprocessors such as low risk of infection for both the healthcare providers and patients is anticipated to drive the growth of the automated endoscope reprocessor market.

Taking into consideration the benefits of automated reprocessors, such as reduced risk of cross contamination, the players in the automated endoscope reprocessor market are expected to invest heavily in newer and more efficient methods of disinfection, to positively influence the growth of the market.
