The global capsule endoscopy systems market is expected to show a significant growth with the rise in aging population who require much medical care. In addition rising prevalence of peptic ulcer, which is a disorder of gastrointestinal tract, will also propel the market growth. It is estimated that approximately 500,000 new ulcer cases are detected each year and at a time 5 million people are affected with ulcers in the United States. Peptic ulcers are common in men and elderly people and are mainly caused due to prolonged usage of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) and H. pylori infection. Moreover, peptic ulcers are also caused due to excess smoking, alcohol consumption, hypercalcaemia/hyperparathyroidism and stress. Patients suffering from peptic ulcers suffer from wide range of symptoms varying from abdominal pain to vomiting, bleeding, or catastrophic perforation of the organ lining. Thirty five percent of the population suffering ulcers suffer from serious complications and sometimes become life threatening. Therefore, for the early diagnosis and proper treatment capsule endoscope plays a pivotal role.
