The Europe Disposable Endoscopes Market would witness market growth of 18.3% CAGR during the forecast period (2019-2025).
An endoscope is used to perform endoscopy, a technique for inspection of the human body’s internal organs. Endoscopes are reused in endoscopy procedures, which may expose patients to life-threatening infections. Improper methods of sterilization and insufficient cleaning processes are undermining the sterility of endoscope instruments. Medical and surgical practitioners also use disposable endoscopes.
Disposable endoscopes provide single-time use facilities and do not require sterilization or cleaning procedures that nullify contamination chances. The European Union sponsored a project called ’Design of a Disposable Use Endoscopy Tool’ (DUET) in 2014. It focused on researching and designing single-use endoscopes to mitigate contamination scenarios. A research conducted by the Association of PeriOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) revealed that, in 2016, five reusable uteroscopes detected gram-positive bacterial contamination.
A major factor driving demand for disposable endoscopes is the growing prevalence of nosocomial infections due to the contamination of endoscopes. Recent advancements in disposable endoscopes, particularly bronchoscopes and colonoscopies, are also expected to have a positive impact on market growth in the coming years. An increasing need for cost savings in endoscopy procedures increases the demand for disposable endoscopes, as these are more cost-effective as compared to the reusable endoscopes.
