Enteroscopy is a medical diagnostic procedure carried out to diagnose various medical conditions of the digestive tract. Enteroscopy device comprises a thin, flexible tube with an attached camera at the tip that is inserted either through mouth or rectum for diagnosis and treatment of disorders of small bowel. The device is usually attached with one or two inflatable balloons to help get closer view of esophagus, stomach, and small intestine. Increase in need of improved diagnosis and treatment of bowel disorders has led to technological advancements in the field of the enteroscopy such as non-invasive enteroscopy devices and device assisted enteroscopy.
The global Enteroscopy Devices Market is primarily driven by high prevalence and increase in incidence rates of gastrointestinal disorders especially inflammatory bowel diseases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 3.1 million people were diagnosed with inflammatory bowel disease in the U.S. in 2015.
Technological advancements in enteroscopy devices, rise in demand for more sophisticated diagnosis of gastrointestinal disorders, and increase in applications of enteroscopy devices are projected to fuel the growth of the market during the forecast period. Development of spiral enteroscopes presents significant opportunities for the leading players in the global market. However, high cost of enteroscopes acts as a restraint of the enteroscopy devices market in price sensitive countries.

The global enteroscopy devices market can be segmented based on product type, application, end-user, and region. In terms of product type, the enteroscopy devices market can be divided into double balloon enteroscopes, single balloon enteroscopes, and spiral enteroscopes. Double balloon enteroscope comprises high resolution flexible endoscope to which a 35 mm diameter balloon is attached at the end and a second balloon attached at the tip of overtube. Single balloon enteroscope has only one balloon attached at the tip of the overtube and is more convenient to use than other types of enteroscopes.
The single balloon enteroscopes segment is projected to dominate the global enteroscopy devices market from 2018 to 2026. Spiral enteroscopes are relatively new devices in the market and consist of a spiral shaped overtube. These enteroscopes are used with the oral route and are available in diameters over 9.4 mm. The spiral enteroscopes segment is anticipated to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period. In terms of application, the global enteroscopy devices market can be categorized into obscure gastrointestinal bleeding, inflammatory bowel disease, gastrointestinal polyps & tumors, and others.
