Endoscope Reprocessing Device Market: Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2016-2023


Endoscope reprocessing involves the cleaning, disinfection and sterilization of the medical instruments, and encompasses the steps of cleaning, rinsing, disinfection, secondary rinsing, drying and storage. It is the fastest growing segment in the disinfection technologies market due to rise in tide of cleaning standard and mounting pressure for sterilized and disinfected medical device in hospitals and clinics. Growing importance of diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy procedures and increasing number of minimally invasive surgeries across the globe are some of the key factors contributing to the growth of this market.

The surge in use of endoscopes, the risk of infections linked to reprocessing is also increasing. When endoscopes are used on multiple patients, they become contaminated with microorganisms. In order to avoid such risk of infection, endoscopes undergo a detailed and automated multistep process to clean or sterilize them, known as reprocessing. Special care must also be taken while reprocessing endoscopes as inadequate reprocessing can result in adverse patient outcomes, such as tissue irritation from residual reprocessing materials (chemical disinfectants). It is also important that the endoscope be designed in such a way so that it can be adequately reprocessed.

Reprocessing of endoscopes involves three steps:

  • Initial cleaning and measures to prevent contamination on the device
  • Device is thoroughly cleaned in a dedicated cleaning area
  • The device is disinfected or sterilized and finally put back into use

The entire endoscopy market is also expected to grow in coming years thus propelling the reprocessing and cleaners segment of the market. The infection control market witnessed healthy growth in the last decade owing to rising aging population and prevalence of chronic diseases, an increase in the number of surgeries performed, and the rising occurrence of hospital-acquired infections. Though, stringent regulations and saturation in developed economies will restrict the growth of the market to a certain extent.

North America accounts for largest share of the infection control market, followed by Europe, Asia- Pacific is emerging market. However, Asia is expected to display favorable growth in coming years, primarily due to rise in awareness, growth of ageing population, increase in number of surgeries, and growth in per capita income.
