The UAE endoscopy devices market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.63% during the forecast period (2022-2027).

The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to significantly impact the endoscopic devices market. However, lockdown measures across the country have decreased public mobility and significantly impacted the diagnostics and imaging industry. The diagnostic procedures and screening programs, which are non-immediate, were postponed to decrease the burden on healthcare infrastructure. However, as the lockdown measures are being eased in most areas, endoscopic procedures are likely to experience momentum during the forecast period and gain a significant growth rate.

Endoscopes are minimally invasive devices that can be inserted into natural openings of the body to observe an internal organ or tissue. Endoscopic surgeries are performed for imaging procedures and minor surgeries. There is an increasing prevalence of endoscopy for treatment and diagnosis, with a growing preference for minimally invasive surgeries. Endoscopy allows operations on more fragile patients, notably the elderly, and treatment of more complex diseases like cancer. Surgery, interventional radiology, and advanced endoscopy have developed minimally invasive techniques to effectively treat various diseases and positively impact patients' postoperative outcomes. Increasing adoption of minimally invasive surgeries has propelled the usage of various endoscopes in surgical procedures, such as arthroscopy, laparoscopy, bronchoscopy, and cystoscopy. Therefore, the growing preference for minimally invasive procedures and the rising prevalence of chronic diseases boost the demand for endoscopy devices.

Key Market Trends

The Urology Segment is Expected to Hold the Largest Share in the UAE Endoscopy Equipment Market During the Forecast Period

Urological disorders are becoming more common in the United Arab Emirates. Other considerations include the growing prevalence of urinary diseases and the increased number of ureteroscopic interventions performed in the United Arab Emirates, which are increasing the demand for endoscopic equipment.

A study titled ‘Incidence, Prevalence, and Clinical Epidemiology of Inflammatory Bowel Disease in the Arab World: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis’, published in 2021, revealed a pooled incidence rate of 2.33 per 100,000 persons per year for ulcerative colitis in the Arab world. Likewise, the pooled incidence rate for Crohn’s disease in the Arab world was 1.46 per 100,000 persons per year. Thus, there is a growing incidence of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in the Arab world.

In addition, the introduction of advanced endoscopic techniques in urology, such as robot-assisted endoscopes or disposable endoscopes, is among the top contributing factors driving the market.

Competitive Landscape

The market is highly competitive, with the presence of many players. As the market progresses, the firms aim to achieve clear differentiation in endoscopic systems based on their application. Due to high-quality imaging and operative capability requirements, various customer groups are shifting toward optimized visualization systems that integrate endoscopes and cameras. Several companies are expected to expand into the United Arab Emirates in the coming years.
