Rising surgical procedures raise the demand for medical cameras.

A rising number of surgical procedures require medical cameras, which has considerably grown in recent years. The growing number of surgeries can be attributed to the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, leading to the increasing demand for medical equipment and the rapidly growing geriatric population globally. Many countries across the globe are facing the challenge of increasing senior populations. According to the United Nations (UN), in 2019, there were 703 million individuals aged 65 years or over in the world. The geriatric population is estimated to double to 1.5 billion in 2050. Non-invasive surgeries (mainly using endoscopy and microscopy surgery cameras) are preferred for aged population due to lesser complications than conventional surgeries.

Within the report, the market is segmented into camera type, technology, sensor, resolution, end user, and geography. By Camera Type, the market is further segmented into Endoscopy Cameras, Ophthalmology Cameras, Dermatology Cameras, Dental Cameras, and Others.

North America to dominate the market in the forecast period

Medical cameras are high-resolution systems that ensure accurate diagnosis, enabling providers to make precise interpretations. Factors such as the presence of established medical device manufacturers and a robust healthcare infrastructure. North America is home to a large geriatric population base. Large-scale occurrence of numerous chronic and lifestyle-associated diseases among elderly individuals will boost the demand for medical cameras. Ongoing R&D projects in healthcare requiring advanced camera and imaging systems will present the regional market players with promising opportunities. Moreover, the growing burden of chronic diseases owing to changing lifestyles and the rising need for less expensive interventions are fueling the market in the United States. According to the Global Cancer Observatory (GLOBOCAN) 2020 data, the US has the second-highest number of prevalent cancer cases among all ages in the last five years across the globe. In addition, about 8,432,938 cases were diagnosed across all ages in the US in the last five years. The high prevalence of cases indicates the high need and demand for medical cameras during the treatment, which is driving the demand in the region.​

The rising adoption of Endoscopy cameras in Gastroenterology specialty is accelerating market growth.

Endoscopy cameras account for the largest share of the market due to the rising geriatric population and the increasing prevalence of gastritis, ulcers, and digestive tract cases around the world. Implementation of high-quality imaging in endoscopic cameras is growing to achieve improved disease diagnosis. The presence of endoscopy cameras helps diagnose and treat diseases which ease the process and help physicians maintain accuracy in treating the disease more than any conventional method. For instance, OptaSensor, located in Germany, has released the smallest commercially available digital camera, measuring 1x1mm in size and with a volume of 1.7mm³. The camera is based on wafer-level packaging, with high-quality wafer-level optics, and an integrated NIR-cut filter. The wide occurrence of numerous diseases requiring endoscopy for diagnosis will fuel the demand for endoscopy cameras. This demand will be further amplified by consumer inclination towards minimally invasive procedures.
