Market Overview

The United Kingdom endoscopy devices market is majorly driven by increased demand for the use of minimally invasive procedures in surgeries. Furthermore, technological advancements, increasing aging population, reduced healthcare costs, improved patient quality of life are also boosting the market growth in the United Kingdom, for endoscopy devices.

Increasing adoption of minimally invasive surgeries has propelled usage of various endoscopes in surgical procedures, such as arthroscopy, laparoscopy, bronchoscopy, and cystoscopy. Compared to open surgeries, these procedures result in quicker recovery and lesser trauma to patients. Thus, minimally invasive surgical procedures are being preferred over open/invasive surgeries and are thereby likely to increase demand for minimally invasive endoscopic devices over the coming years. The shift toward minimally invasive surgeries can also attributed to higher patient satisfaction, economic viability, relatively shorter hospital stay, and reduced postsurgical complications. Thus, demand for minimally invasive endoscopic surgeries is expected to increase over the coming years.However, expensive procedures, limited availability of skilled labor, and stringent regulatory framework are the challenges faced by the market.

Key Market Trends

Flexible Endoscopy Segment Dominates the UK Endoscopy Devices Market

Flexible endoscopes provide visibility for the internal side of the organ, which generally cannot be seen with a normal view. In order to perform ENT procedures, for instances, throat cancer, sleep apnea, chronic cough, vocal cord dysfunction, and disorders related to swallowing, flexible endoscopes are extensively used in hospitals, clinics, and other medical facilities. This further boosts the growth of the endoscopic devices market. When a flexible endoscopic device comes into contact with a patient's tissue, blood, urine, saliva, or stool, appropriate cleaning is important, in order to avoid harmful effects caused by contamination. The most common types of flexible endoscopy for the gastrointestinal tract are oesophagogastroduodenoscopy (OGD) and colonoscopy. Recent research studies reported that flexible endoscopy under conscious sedation with overtubes is likely to show a high success rate. These devices may improve the safety of patients and minimize personnel exposure to liquid chemical germicides and their vapors. Procedural limitations of flexible endoscopy are rare; some of them include, incomplete investigation, patients’ discomfort, and complications, such as perforation, and risks of sedation.


Competitive Landscape

The UK endoscopy devices market has rapidly evolved over the last few years. The industry observed significant changes in adopting market strategies, such as product developments, mergers and acquisitions in recent years. Thus, the UK endoscopy devices market has become a very competitive industry.
