Report Description

Global Disposable Bronchoscopes Market is anticipated to grow with an elevated CAGR of around 13% over the forecast period (2021-2027).
A bronchoscope is a device that is used for performing the most common interventional pulmonology procedures called bronchoscopy. It consists of a hollow metal tube or a thinner tube with an attached fiberoptic or video camera for transmitting the image and is commonly used during the endoscopic examination, diagnosis, and treatment of airways and tracheobronchial tree.

The growing adoption of disposable bronchoscopes can be attributed to the rising prevalence of various respiratory diseases. Some of the most common respiratory diseases include lung cancer, tumors airway stenosis, pneumonia, bronchitis, lung infections, and chronic obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Almost 3.3 million people succumb to COPD every year, as per the World Health Organization. Also, according to the American Cancer Society estimates, in the U.S., nearly 235,070 new cases of lung cancer and tumors were detected in 2018. This in turn is driving the demand for bronchoscopies to detect and treat lung cancers. Thereby, boosting the disposable bronchoscopes market.

Additionally, the disposable bronchoscopes market is anticipated to grow on account of the growing technological advancement and frequent product launches in the market. For example, in April 2021, Olympus announced the addition to its U.S. bronchoscopy portfolio of the 510(k)-cleared H-SteriScope Single-Use Bronchoscopes, a line of five premium endoscopes for use in advanced diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. This single-use bronchoscope, specifically designed for tissue biopsy, foreign body retrieval, and other advanced procedures, help clinicians target, diagnose, and treat patients while enhancing workflow and productivity. Furthermore, the increase in the adoption of minimally invasive procedures and growing awareness regarding the benefits offered by these disposable devices are also some of the prominent reasons contributing towards the market growth.
