US Market Report for Otoscopes 2017 - MedCore

Video otoscopes are devices designed to assist in physical diagnosis while providing video record and playback functions. Device designs range from adapters that can replace the head portion of a standard otoscope and provide video playback through television, VCR or digital recordings, to complete systems that provide integrated digital record and playback functions. Software included with the video otoscope typically allows easy interfaceing with a laptop or desktop computer via USB video capture cable. Video otoscopes can be used for performing physical diagnosis, can provide the patient with information and education, can offer superior data for storage in electronic medical records and can assist in physician education. The video otoscope market accounted for a larger portion of the total market largely due to its higher average selling price and units sold. However, expected decline in sales volume in this segment will restrict future growth of the overall market. Otoscopes are a necessary tool for physicians performing physical diagnosis and the population over 65 years of age is increasing. Both of these factors will help maintain the need for otoscopes over the forecast period. The market will be further limited by trends such as sharing of equipment among some physicians and lack of innovation. Additional factors limiting the video otoscope segment include a lack of audiologist acceptance, long product life cycles and high prices.

Standard otoscopes (also known as auriscopes) are medical devices is designed to assist a physician in making physical diagnoses, making it possible to see the outer and middle ear. Otoscopes are considered a required device by any physician performing physical diagnoses. The device is handheld and consists of a power supply base and a magnifying head. This allows the physician to immediately magnify and illuminate a small area of the patient’s body, including in the mouth and ear canal. Otoscope design consists of a head (with light source and low-powered magnifying lens), disposable plastic ear specula which can attach to the front end (distal) and a lens on the rear of the instrument that enables physicians to see into their patient’s ear canal. Most otoscopes are portable and battery powered.
