Cholangioscope Market Introduction

Cholangioscope is a device used for non-invasive endoscopic procedure for direct visual diagnostic evaluation of the bile ducts. Cholangioscopy is performed when endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography is not sufficient to provide a clear diagnostic image.

Cholangioscope Market Dynamics

The global cholangioscope market is driven by various factors at regional, national, as well as global level. Aging population and increase in trend of minimally invasive surgeries are the major factors contributing to the growth of the global market. Moreover, surge in technological innovations and investment by public and private sectors for the advancement of health care are projected to propel the global market during the forecast period. However, high cost of cholangioscope devices and lack of skilled surgeons are likely to restrain the global market during the forecast period. Cholangioscope requires highly sophisticated technology and expertise in manufacturing and adding technological advancements in it. These factors increase the overall cost of cholangioscope and accessories. This acts as a major restraint of the global cholangioscope market. 

Technological Innovations are driving the Cholangioscope Market

Technological innovations in medical cholangioscope have increased the scope of the market and therefore increased the customer base. For instance, in 2015, Boston Scientific launched SpyGlass DS II Direct Visualization System which provides high resolution imaging during cholangiopancreatography procedure.

Less Number of Skilled Professionals would Restraint the Market for Cholangioscope

Cholangioscope requires highly sophisticated technology and extreme expertise in manufacturing and adding technological advancements. Low awareness, high cost of technology and huge gap in number of physicians available for population, there is always scarcity of trained healthcare professional for handling endoscopic devices. According to World Bank data, in 2010 there were 2.4 and 2.7 physicians per 1,000 people in the United States and United Kingdom whereas China, India and Indonesia have 1.8, 0.6 and 0.3 physicians including general and specialist medical practitioners respectively. Brazil and Mexico have 1.8 and 2.0 physicians per 1,000 people respectively. Lesser number of physicians in emerging and developing market forms major restraint for the growth of cholangioscope market.
