      US Endoscope Service Market To Reach Value Of $925 Million By 2021

Growing Preference for Endoscope Service from OEMs Fueling Revenue Expansion,
According to Millennium Research Group

TORONTO, April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --According to Millennium Research Group
(MRG), the global authority on medical technology market intelligence,
revenues for endoscope service will grow moderately in the United States
through 2021. Due to the capital budget constraints faced by many facilities
and the fragile nature of advanced endoscopes, it is generally more
cost-effective for facilities to have their endoscopes serviced rather than to
replace them completely with new systems.

Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) compete with third-party vendors for
endoscope service business. While third-party servicers have become
increasingly competitive, revenues generated by OEMs will continue to grow
slightly faster. Some of the strategic advantages for OEMs include the funding
to engage in national marketing efforts, having proprietary parts and offering
a wide breadth of service and payment programs.

Marketing campaigns from OEMs such as Olympus and Stryker highlight the
advantages of OEM endoscope repair and the potential risks of third-party
repairs. For example, OEMs have access to the exact parts and service manuals
for their endoscopes, which facilities value, particularly for new endoscopes.
OEMs are also able to negotiate service contracts when new endoscope purchases
are made; this is something that third-party vendors cannot do.

"Even though OEMs have generally dominated in this market, third-party vendors
have made a number of strides to better compete as well," said MRG Senior
Analyst Lexie Code. "In particular, acquisitions between third-party vendors
have given them wider service networks and larger budgets so that they can
compete with OEMs for high-value group purchasing organization (GPO) service

Overall, however, OEMs will continue to be the preferred endoscope service
companies in the US through 2021, and the expensive nature of repairs by these
companies will continue to fuel revenue expansion in the endoscope service
