The worldwide market for automated endoscope reprocessors (AER) unveils productive development over the forecast period from 2018 to 2026, due to high-end technical progress in automated reprocessing devices combined with quicker turnaround times to optimize precise outcomes with zero contamination factor. Technology assessments in automated endoscope reprocessors such as portable / bench top and stand-alone systems are gaining momentum in hospitals and clinics. Automated endoscope reprocessing machines have improved capacities compared to fundamental or simple machines or manual cleaning of complicated, digital, micro-processing machines with enhanced functionality and features such as quicker reprocessing cycle time (approx. 30 minutes), temperature control mechanism, barcode scanner, asynchronous operation, alcohol flush, automated leak test, etc.
In the latest era, the passage through automated endoscope reprocessors has acquired a greater momentum. ADVANTAGE PLUS automated endoscope reprocessor produced by Medivators physically isolates ideal and unclean reprocessing areas to minimize the danger of error and cross-contamination and therefore ensures greater patient safety by tracking each endoscope channel individually for blocking and flow protection of full high-level disinfection.
However, problems occur at few instances during complete washing and drying; also contaminations associated with the use of endoscopes i.e., high risk of infections associated with improper sterilization of endoscopes may hinder the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, physicians’ choice for manual cleaning of endoscopes in the developing regions in the Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa (MEA) regions may show slow growth of adoption. High prices of AER machines is also a very crucial factor, which restricts the overall consumption of these machines in the hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers in the developing economies.
Furthermore, rising endoscopy procedures, minimally invasive surgeries, infection control awareness, rising purchasing power of healthcare facilities, beneficiary schemes for reimbursement, and higher utilization of advanced automated machines in the developing nations such as India, China, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa and others are various external factors fueling the demand for automated endoscope reprocessors in near future.
