The Canadian market for endoscopic and surgical devices includes endoscopes and devices from the GI endoscopy, urology, gynecology, bronchoscopy, ENT, laparoscopy, video, high-tech, automated endoscope reprocessor and electrosurgical device reprocessor markets.
Endoscopy is a minimally invasive diagnostic procedure that is used to assess the interior of the body by inserting a tube into the body. Endoscopes can be rigid or flexible, depending on the procedure they are required for, and not only provide images for inspection, but also have operating channels through which instruments can be inserted to take biopsies or perform procedures. Sedation and anesthesia are common for endoscopic procedures, but not required.
Endoscopic procedures can be performed in a variety of different environments; from walk-in clinics where mild or no anesthesia is used, to integrated operating rooms, where full sedation is used and more complex procedures are performed.
A traditional endoscope system is composed of four main components: a rigid or flexible tube which houses the rest of the components, a lens system which transmits the image to the viewer from the fiberscope, a light delivery system which transmits light via optical fibers from an outside source to illuminate the organ and operating area, and finally, an additional medical channel through which instruments are passed to be used during the procedure.
In 2012, the Canadian endoscopic and surgical devices Market was valued at over $475 million.
High demand for GI screening and intervention procedures due to the aging population and growing awareness will drive market growth. Many segments of the Canadian market are dominated by group purchasing organizations (GPOs) that issue large scale tenders, often to cover all the hospitals in a province. Growth can be attributed to advances in technology, such as the recent adaptation of HD technology, as well as a trend among specialists and patients to opt for minimally invasive surgery.
Scope: This report pertains to a forecast period of 10 years (2009 2019) for Canada.
