This report, ‘The World Market for Gastrointestinal Devices’, details the market for endoscopes and other devices used for treating gastrointestinal conditions. There are many factors behind the growth of this market. Cancer is one of leading reasons for surgery with more than 1 million new cases of colon/rectum cancer reported each year around the world. Obesity is another reason for growth. More and more people worldwide are turning to gastric bypass (bariatric surgery) and gastric banding to aide in their weight loss, thus increasing the need for gastrointestinal endoscopy.
Improved technology is another driver for the market. Newer technologies such as the capsule endoscopy and other devices have also increased this market. These miniaturized in-vivo robots assist by performing several surgical functions such as visualization but are not attached to or constrained by laparoscopic tool lever arms. Using robotic cameras inside the body simplifies port and tool placement.
