US Endoscope Repair Solutions Market, Forecast to 2022
The study covers current and future market trends, drivers, challenges, and key opportunities in US endoscope repair market. It analyzes the market by application areas such as arthroscopy, ENT endoscopy, GI endoscopy, gynecology, laparoscopy, neurology, pulmonary endoscopy, and urology. The analysis covers both rigid and flexible endoscopes and lists the market opportunities by different end-user categories such as hospitals, day care and ambulatory centers, and stand-alone specialized clinics. Market opportunities are analyzed for 2 sets of endoscope repair market participants—original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and independent service organizations (ISOs). It also provides strategic insights for targeted growth opportunities for each set of participants.
The US endoscope repair landscape will see stable pricing levels in the next 5 years, with a mild downward pressure, due to the increasing penetration of ISOs, which are expected to gain market share. However, OEMs will be the dominant participants in terms of both repair volume and value. While the overall endoscope repair market is driven by procedure volume and not as much by repair types and is application-agnostic, GI endoscopy, laparoscopy, and neurology are the target market for flexible endoscopes and are the largest revenue-generating segments. Repair probability is driven by manual cleaning, improper reprocessing using AER, usage frequency, and lifecycle extension. Damage to most endoscopes is driven by improper handling of endoscopes during procedures and not due to regular wear and tear.
The study also covers current and forecast market size, as well as current and forecast ISO and OEM penetration in terms of revenue and repair volumes. It offers analysis of budget trends, key influencers, and decision makers in the repair vendor decisions of care providers.
