Associate Editor Marie Thibault at Medical Device and Diagnostic Industry (MD+DI) recently wrote a piece on the U.S. gastrointestinal endoscopic market. Here is an excerpt of her article.

A new market report forecasts continued growth in almost all segments of the approximately $2.35 billion U.S. gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopic market through 2020. Despite falling sale prices, this trend is possible in part because of baby boomers’ need for GI screening and interventions.

The report, “U.S. Market for Gastrointestinal Endoscopic Devices,” from iData Research, an international market research and consulting group, details the sector by product type, including capsule endoscopy, Barrett’s esophagus ablation devices, virtual colonoscopy, polypectomy snares, and several others.

The GI endoscopic industry is a well-established, concentrated market, with one giant player, Olympus Corp. Other major companies, such as Boston Scientific Corp., Covidien (now part of Medtronic Plc), and Cook Medical. The top 10 companies in this market together hold almost 90% market share, according to the report.

One key highlight from the iData Research report is the increasing trend toward sales of third-party refurbished and repaired endoscopes, mainly to international customers. According to an executive summary of the report, refurbished endoscopes are expected to make up 25% of the total GI endoscope market by 2020. Attractive pricing and good warranties for refurbished products are driving this movement.
