Thoracoscopes Market: Rigid thoracoscopes segment accounted for the largest market share

Thoracoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure performed by a pulmonary specialist for the diagnosis and treatment of disorders related to chest cavity. It is considered to be the second most important endoscopic technology in respiratory therapy. Thoracoscopy involves insertion of a thin tube called endoscope through a small incision made on chest. Thoracoscope comprises a lens and a light source for viewing, along with various ports through which other instruments are inserted for the purpose of minor surgeries such as tissue removal. Thoracoscopes allow surgeons to inspect the mediastinum, lungs, and pleura, which helps early detection of tumors and other abnormalities in lungs. Thoracoscope is an integral part of thoracic surgery and bronchoscopy, as it requires only a single puncture to be made on the chest under local anesthesia to examine the lungs and diagnose respiratory disorders. Preference for shorter hospital stay by patients, increase in number of thoracoscope manufacturers, and introduction of technologically advanced thoracoscopes with enhanced illumination are expected to fuel the growth of the global thoracoscopes market during the forecast period. However, high cost associated with thoracoscopes and accessories, and issues of incompatibilities arising for the thoracoscopes and illumination sources are projected to restrain the global market from 2018 to 2026.

However, increase in demand for flexible thoracoscopes across the globe is projected to fuel the growth of the flexible thoracoscopes segment from 2018 to 2026. In terms of end-user, the global thoracoscopes market can be categorized into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, diagnostic laboratories, and specialty clinics. The hospitals segment accounted for the largest market share in terms of revenue in 2017, attributed to improved distribution of thoracoscopes by key manufacturers in hospital pharmacies and favorable reimbursement policies for thoracoscopy procedures. Rise in number of multispecialty hospitals across the globe is projected to boost the growth of the hospitals segment during the forecast period. However, the specialty clinics segment is anticipated to expand at a high CAGR from 2018 to 2026, driven by recent launch of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS), wherein thoracoscopes are used to treat the accumulated fluid in the pleural cavity.
