Endoscope Market Analysis

Released on Nov. 27, 2019

Endoscope Camera is an indispensable diagnostic and surgical device for general surgery, ENT, urology, orthopedics, gynecology and other departments, and is one of the fastest growing products in the global medical device industry.

An endoscope is a commonly used medical device that enters the human body through a natural orifice of the human body or a small incision made through surgery. When used, the endoscope is introduced into a pre-examined organ to directly observe changes in the relevant parts. The endoscope is mainly composed of three major systems, namely the endoscope system, the image display system, and the lighting system. Taking the currently commonly used electronic endoscope as an example, the endoscope system includes an operating handle and a lens body, the lens body extends into the patient, and a plurality of tubes are juxtaposed inside the lens body, including an illumination fiber and an image transmission fiber (in the electronic endoscope). It is a CCD video cable), air passage, water passage, instrument channel, etc. The endoscope has extremely high precision and requires the cooperation of multiple professional fields.

From the historical time axis, through the continuous improvement of the two principles of the principle and the degree of softness and rigidity of the imaging system, the development of endoscopes has experienced rigid tube endoscopes, semi-flexible endoscopes, and fiber endoscopes. 4. Four stages of electronic endoscope. Generally speaking, rigid tube endoscopes and semi-flexible endoscopes are defined as hard endoscopes. Fiber endoscopes and electronic endoscopes are called soft endoscopes because they can bend freely. The scope of clinical applications is also expanding. 

At present, the clinical application of electronic endoscope is divided into two aspects: diagnosis and treatment. The diagnostic function is mainly to obtain real-time dynamic internal images by the clinician through the endoscope, and to obtain tissue for in vitro detection through appropriate equipment. The treatment function needs to be equipped with Professional minimally invasive surgical instruments for specific surgical treatment. The main application scenarios of endoscopes include Endoscopy Camera For ENT, oral cavity, digestive tract, urethral bladder, kidney, joints, abdominal cavity and other organs or parts.

The endoscopic minimally invasive medical device industry is a multi-disciplinary, knowledge-intensive high-tech industry. The product integrates a variety of disciplines such as medicine, bioengineering, optics, precision manufacturing, image processing, medical materials, optical electromechanical information, etc. High technical barriers. Enterprises in the industry need to develop, produce, and produce products of different series and specifications for different departments, different diseases, and different diagnosis and treatment methods in order to meet the diagnostic and treatment requirements of medical institutions. The proprietary technology of endoscopic minimally invasive medical device products The accumulation of research and development of research and development capabilities is a long-term process, and ordinary companies cannot form quickly in a short period of time.

In addition, the technical innovation and production and processing of endoscopic minimally invasive medical devices must be supported by a stable technical team. The lack of talents in the field of minimally invasive medical devices in China is also a major factor in the slow development of industrial technology. Need to communicate with medical institutions, scientific research institutes, institutions of higher learning and other units, be familiar with the use requirements of hospitals, and combine technical theory with their own experience. Therefore, qualified high-end talents are difficult to train on a large scale in a short period of time, which constitutes entry Important barriers to the industry.

Science and technology is the general trend of the development of the medical device industry in the future. Many endoscope companies are spared no effort to give play to their technological advantages, increase investment in research and development, and accelerate the pace of commercialization of research and development results. The main trends in the development of international endoscope technology are: high-definition images and greater viewing angles; multifunctionalization; non-contact endoscopes, reducing cross-infection and human error caused by contact; and more miniaturization.

The above is the market analysis of the endoscope introduced by ENT Endoscope Camera Companies Manufacturer.
