The colonoscopes market is projected to reach US$ 2,005.32 million by 2028 from US$ 1,467.66 million in 2021; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2021 to 2028.

Colonoscopes are used for the removal of foreign bodies, excision of tumors or colorectal polyps (polypectomy), and control of hemorrhage. Routine colonoscopy is important in diagnosing intestinal cancer, which is the second-leading cause of cancer-related death cases in the US. These endoscopic procedures reduce the need for invasive surgical diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Factors such as increase in the prevalence of colorectal cancer, continuous technological advancements in colonoscopy devices to extend their applications in therapeutic areas, and development of robotic colonoscopes boost the growth of the colonoscopes market. However, the availability of alternative diagnostic tests for rectal diseases hampers the growth of the colonoscopes market.

Market Insights

Increasing Prevalence of Colorectal Cancer Bolsters Colonoscopes Market Growth

Colorectal cancer is a malignant tumor that develops in the tissues of colon or rectum. Colon and rectal cancer are often grouped due to common features of both conditions. Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer type (excluding skin cancer) diagnosed every year in the US. In 2021, 149,500 adults are estimated to be diagnosed with colorectal cancer in the country. These numbers include 104,270 new cases of colon cancer (52,590 men and 51,680 women) and 45,230 new cases of rectal cancer (26,930 men and 18,300 women). The incidence of this cancer type has been rising in young people since the mid-1990s. During 2012–2016, the incidence rose by 2% in adults below 50 and 1% in adults of age 50–64, annually. Among men and women of age 30–39 in the US, colorectal cancer is estimated to be the fourth most diagnosed cancer. It is estimated to cause 52,980 deaths (28,520 men and 24,460 women) in 2021. Furthermore, it is the second leading cause of cancer death in the country, among men and women combined, while it stands as the third leading cause of cancer death when men and women are considered separately. As per the data provided by European Cancer Information System, in EU-27 countries, colorectal cancer accounted for 12.7% of all new cancer diagnoses and 12.4% of total mortalities caused by the disease in 2020. Such a high prevalence makes it the second most frequently occurring cancer, after breast cancer, and the second leading cause of death, after lung cancer. Further, in India, although the prevalence of colorectal cancer is lower than that in western countries, it stands seventh among the leading causes of mortality. As per the recent data provided by Globacan India 2018, over 27,000 new cases were registered in 2019, with the death of ~20,000 patients; the number of patients living with this condition is estimated to be more than 50,000.

Surgery is the most common treatment for all stages of colon cancer. In ideal situations, where the cancer is diagnosed in early stages, doctors can remove the tumor via surgical procedures. A colonoscopy is an important screening test for colorectal cancer, and it has become a part of routine cancer screening. The annual count of adults getting screened for cancer surged by 3.3 million in the US during 2014–2016, which is considered a prime factor associated with a 30% decrease in colon cancer mortality rate in people older than 50 in the past decade. In its updated screening guidelines released in 2018, the American Cancer Society quoted colonoscopies as the gold standard for detecting cancers and precancerous polyps in the colon. In addition, studies suggest that colonoscopy can help reduce CRC incidence by ~40% and mortality by ~50%, which indicates a promising future for the global colonoscopy devices market growth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which product type led the colonoscopes market?

The fiber optic colonoscopy device segment dominated the global colonoscopes market and held the largest revenue share of 66.42% in 2021.

What is colonoscope?

Colonoscopes are used to remove foreign bodies, excise tumors or colorectal polyps (polypectomy), and control bleeding. These devices consist of a proximal housing, a flexible insertion tube, and an "umbilical cord," connecting the proximal housing to the light source. Colonoscopes have several open channels for suction, water, and air supply as well as for the insertion of accessory instruments and cannulas. The distal tip of video colonoscopes contains a charge-coupled device (CCD) that acts as a small camera and electronically transmits image from the CCD to an external video processing unit. Routine colonoscopy is important in diagnosing intestinal cancer, which is the second-leading cause of cancer-led deaths in the US. These endoscopic procedures reduce the need for invasive surgical diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.

What is the regional market scenario of colonoscopes?

Global colonoscopes market is segmented by region into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa and South & Central America. In North America, The US holds the largest size of the market in this region owing to factors such as the increasing burden of aging population, elevating number of product launches, and surge in R&D activities to develop advanced colonoscopes. Colonoscopy is one of the colon cancer screening tests, and in the US, it is available for people aged above 50. A few medical societies in the country recommend a screening colonoscopy every 10 years among people from this demographic group. According to the American Cancer Society, ~104,610 new cases of colon cancer and 43,340 cases of rectal cancer were diagnosed in the US in 2020. The International Agency for Research on Cancer reported enough evidence to conclude that tobacco smoking is one of the major factors causing colon cancer.
