This Global Report Series represents iData’s entire collection of country-level reports in the Gastrointestinal (GI) Endoscopy Devices Market. Each of these reports may be purchased as a stand-alone report, tailoring the data to your needs. The covered countries are listed below, including the report’s base year:
US Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Devices Market
In 2018, the U.S. GI endoscopy device market was valued at over $2.9 billion in 2018, which is expected to exceed $3.7 billion in 2025. The main driver behind the technological advancements in the US gastrointestinal endoscopy device market is a natural preference for less and, ideally, non-invasive methods of treatment. This market steadily increases its reach into therapeutic fields addressing conditions that previously were only treatable through more invasive methods and now are treated “through-the-scope”.
The US market demand continues to be impacted by hospitals continuing to acquire outpatient facilities and expanding the reach of the group purchasing organizations (GPOs). Coupled with the reimbursement cuts across the GI space, the average selling prices are expected to remain under notable pressure, and this market study analyses the impact of this trend on the overall market.
Europe Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Devices Market
In 2018, the EU GI endoscopy devices market was valued at nearly 1.2 billion in 2019, which is expected to increase and reach just under 1.4 billion in 2025. The saturated nature of the European market will limit growth over the next 5 years. Reimbursement will continue to remain low for GI endoscopy procedures in many European countries, due to the high associated costs.
As the European population ages, incidences of colon and rectal cancer are increasing across most of the continent. Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths (after lung cancer) in the European Union. Over the past decade, media campaigns initiated by cancer awareness organizations and governmental bodies have done a lot to increase awareness of the condition and the necessity of screening for it.
China Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Devices Market
In 2019, the China GI endoscopy device market was valued at approximately $1.3 billion, with over 12.5 million colonoscopy procedures performed every year. The market value is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.1% to approach $1.9 billion in 2026.
Technological advancements and product improvements over the past several years have made GI endoscopes more effective in performing GI procedures. The HD format, and now HD+ along with advanced magnification capabilities, which penetrated the Chinese market only recently, resulted in a greater detection rate for polyps. Improved designs have also made flexible GI endoscopes easier to handle, and smaller instrumentation has allowed for more specialized devices.

Global Market Share Insights
In the US, and European gastrointestinal endoscopy markets, Boston Scientific holds the leading position. Boston Scientific has a very broad portfolio of products across the global market and is excepted to retain its leading position in the U.S. market for the foreseeable future. Boston Scientific has experienced significant growth in the biliary and pancreatic stent market since launching the AXIOS™ lumen-apposing covered-metal stent. The lumen-apposing covered-metal stent market is one the latest innovations in the ERCP space, indicated for transgastric or transduodenal endoscopic drainage of symptomatic pancreatic pseudocysts and walled-off necrosis under EUS imaging guidance.
Subsequent leading competitors vary by region, for example, Olympus holds the second-leading position in the U.S. gastrointestinal endoscopy devices market. The company’s position in the overall market is heavily weighted to its dominant position in the GI endoscope market. Olympus has been a competitor in the GI endoscopy device market since the 1950’s when they developed the Gastrocamera™. Olympus is also the leading competitor in the Chinese and Canadian markets.
Global Statistics & Procedure Trends
There are currently over 57.43 million total gastrointestinal procedures performed in the United States annually. The largest segment is GI endoscopy, which accounts for approximately 56% of the total procedure volume. The majority of these procedures are screenings related to colon cancer or the removal of abnormalities from the GI tract. On the other hand, in Europe, the total number is well over 38 million procedures, the largest segment is GI endoscopy, which accounts for approximately 46% of the total procedure volume.
According to Acid Reflux (GERD) Statistics and Facts, 60% of the adult population experience some type of GERD within a year, and up to 30% have weekly symptoms. Approximately seven million people in the US have some symptom of GERD. GERD affects 20% of Americans, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK).
