The global esophagoscope market has been extensively analyzed on the basis of various regional factors such as demographics, gross domestic product (GDP), inflation rate, acceptance and others.Esophagoscopy comes across as a procedure wherein a flexible endoscope is inserted through the mouth or more rarely, through the nares into the esophagus. The endoscope makes use of a charge coupled device for diaplaying magnified images on a video screen. The procedure enables visualization of esophageal mucosa from upper esophageal sphincter to the esophagogastric junction (EGJ).Esophagoscopy is generally performed as part of a complete upper endoscopic procedure wherein the esophagus, stomach, and portions of the small intestine are explored endoscopically.Esophagoscopy is routinely performed in an outpatient setting, though inpatient and emergency department management of gastrointestinal diseases often require urgent inpatient upper endoscopy including but not limited to esophagoscopy. Moreover, some conditions do necessitate routine esophageal endoscopic surveillance as well as therapeutics.
The esophagoscope market is segmented on the basis of product type, application and geography.On the basis of product type, the esophagoscope market is segmented into flexible video esophagoscopes, flexible non-video esophagoscopes and so on.On the basis of application, the esophagoscope market is segmented into hospitals, clinics, diagnostic centersand so on.On the basis of geography, the esophagoscope market is segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America and Middle East & Africa. Esophagoscopy is generally performed with moderate sedation in the U.S., which is achieved by administering benzodiazepine and a narcotic in combination. In Asia and Europe, however, the procedure is usually performed without sedation. Topical anesthesia is,at times,administeredfor improving patient comfort and tolerance. General anesthesia is rarely administered in patients who face difficultyin getting sedated or are at a higher risk of airway compromise.The key players of esophagoscope market are Pentax, Olympus, FUJIFILM Holdings, Shanghai AOHUA, Cogentix Medical, Richard Wolf, Orient Medical, Sklar Surgical Instruments and Zhejiang Shendasiao Medical Instrument.
