Market Overview

The Bronchoscope Market is expected to register a CAGR of 7 % during the forecast period. Bronchoscope is a device that is used in bronchoscopy for diagnosis of lower respiratory diseases. Increase in number of cases related to respiratory diseases and developments related to products is expected to have a major impact on the bronchoscope market. According to the World Health Organization, in 2018, around 2.09 million cases of lung cancer were reported. This might increase the demand for minimally invasive procedures and thereby expected to boost the bronchoscope market growth. However, risk of contamination of devices may hinder the growth of bronchoscope market and is among the major restraints to this market.

Key Market Trends

Flexible Bronchoscope Segment is Expected to Hold a Major Market Share in the Bronchoscope Market

  • Bronchoscope is the major tool which is used in bronchoscopy, mainly divided into two types – rigid and flexible
  • Flexible bronchoscopes are longer and thinner tubes that allows to see lower area of the bronchus. According to National Centre of Biotechnological Information, flexible bronchoscope is much easier to change the position inside the bronchus and thus enables to give a clear image. Also, it can be practiced simultaneously with the other procedures such as laser treatment and endobronchial ultrasound.
  • Furthermore, flexible bronchoscope is less expensive which may increase the adoption of it and thereby expected to influence positively on the bronchoscope market. According to the published report of National Centre of Biotechnology Information on cost-effectiveness of single-use flexible video bronchoscopes, it was revealed that bronchoscopy procedures that involved single-use flexible video bronchoscopes around 118 USD was saved per procedure. Hence, it is expected to impel the bronchoscope market growth.

North America is Expected to Hold a Significant Share in the Market and Expected to do Same in the Forecast Period

North America expected to hold a major market share in the global bronchoscope market due to increasing number of bronchoscopy procedures and higher prevalence rates of respiratory diseases such as lung cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 228,820 new cases of lung cancer were recorded in 2020, thereby expected to increase the demand for bronchoscope devices. According to the National Centre of Biotechnology Information, around 500,000 procedures of bronchoscopy is performed in the US every year. Hence, it is expected to boost the bronchoscope market growth.
