Global Bronchoscopes Industry Towards US$ 647.7 Million Sales, Anticipating 4.4% CAGR Through 2028 | FMI

Global Bronchoscopes Industry

The Global Bronchoscopes Industry, valued at approximately US$ 501 Million in 2022, is set for an extraordinary surge, with projections indicating a 1.3X increase over the forecast period, according to the latest report by Future Market Insights (FMI). The market is anticipated to maintain a robust Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.4% between 2022 and 2028, culminating in sales reaching US$ 647.7 million by the end of 2028.

Bronchoscopes, a significant segment of the global endoscopes market, are expected to represent around 4% of the market share by the close of 2021, as the overall endoscopes market is projected to reach a valuation of US$ 13.0 Billion in the same year.

The escalating prevalence of respiratory conditions such as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary fibrosis, interstitial pneumonitis, occupational sarcoidosis, and pulmonary hemorrhage is driving an unprecedented demand for Bronchoscopes. This surge in demand not only underscores the critical need for advanced diagnostic and therapeutic tools but also presents lucrative opportunities for manufacturers to innovate and meet evolving healthcare challenges.

Cleaning typical (multiple-use) flexible Bronchoscopes is time-consuming and expensive, and there is a risk of cross-infection. By adopting a single-use flexible video bronchoscope, cross-contamination is eliminated. An early assessment of the economic effectiveness of single-use Bronchoscopes suggests potential hospital savings and patient benefits from infection prevention. The rising use of single-use flexible Bronchoscopes is developing a sizable industry due to their enticing benefits.

“Apart from the factors mentioned, technological advancements in the Bronchoscopes landscape—witnessing a transformation shift from conventional invasive procedures to minimally invasive and advanced devices is a critical factor determining the global demand for Bronchoscopes, further amplifying its potential applications.

Among the significant improvements and developments boosting global demand for Bronchoscopes are white-light bronchoscopy, navigational bronchoscopy, and autofluorescence (blue-light) bronchoscopy. Thin Bronchoscopes with minimally invasive characteristics are increasingly gaining popularity. Manufacturers of Bronchoscopes have improved on original Bronchoscopes in terms of application and product variety,” notes a company senior analyst.
