In 2022, GlobalData’s Market Model methodology determined that the leading player in the capsule endoscopes market in Japan was RF followed by Olympus and Medtronic.

A Capsule Endoscope is comprised of four light emitting diodes (LEDs), a color camera chip, a lens, a radio frequency transmitter, two batteries, and an antenna. The capsule is enclosed in a biocompatible material to prevent reaction with the digestive fluids. The capsule endoscope is a single-use device which moves into the gastrointestinal tract by peristalsis and is excreted naturally. Capsule Endoscopes are further classified into three types: Small Bowel Capsule Endoscopes, Esophageal Capsule Endoscopes and Colon Capsule Endoscopes.

Following the widespread disruption resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic to the broader medical devices market during 2020 and 2021, the value of the capsule endoscopes devices market within Japan was expected to be over $1m in 2022.
