Of these devices, 15 are in active development, while the remaining 15 are in an inactive stage of development. There are six products in the early stages of development, and the remaining nine are in the late stages of development.

Endoscopy Devices are used to examine internal organs for diagnosis of diseases. A capsule endoscope is a small, pill-sized camera that is swallowed by the patient. The capsule takes pictures of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract as it passes through the body. The pictures are then transmitted to a recorder that is worn by the patient. It involves a minimally invasive procedure leading to a shorter recovery time and less pain than traditional endoscopy procedures.

Innovations in the medical devices sector are linked to the development of new approaches, processes, or technologies for treating, diagnosing, and managing disease in response to demand from healthcare for better patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.

Based on an analysis of GlobalData’s Medical Intelligence Center pipeline product database, these actively developed Capsule Endoscopes pipeline devices are all expected to be approved within the next ten years.

Currently, private organizations, public entities and institutions are working on the development of Capsule Endoscopes devices. Overall, most of these Capsule Endoscopes pipeline devices are being developed by private entities.

Key players involved in the active development of Capsule Endoscopes include Massachusetts General Hospital, Monash University, Motilis Medica, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Olympus Medical Systems, Omniscient, Ovesco Endoscopy, Queen Mary University of London, Realview and Shenzhen Sibionics Technology.
