(Health-NewsWire.Net, August 14, 2019 ) The global endoscopy equipment market is projected to reach USD 35.2 billion by 2024 from an estimated USD 25.6 billion in 2019 at a CAGR of 6.6%. The growth of this market is driven by factors such as the growing demand for endoscopy, growing investments, funds, and grants, rising number of hospitals and increasing hospital investments in endoscopy facilities, and technological advancements. However, unfavorable healthcare reforms in the US and the high cost of endoscopy procedures & equipment and limited reimbursement in developing countries are expected to restrain the growth of this market.
The North America region is expected to witness the highest growth in the endoscopy equipment market during the forecast period. The favorable reimbursement scenario in the US, rising incidence of cancer, increasing investments by hospitals to purchase new endoscopic equipment, and growing research activities to improve endoscopy are driving the growth of the North American market.
