1. The development and evolution of endoscopic minimally invasive medicine
 
 
 
The concept of minimally invasive operation was first proposed by British urologists Payne and Wickham in 1985. The success of the first laparoscopic cholecystectomy in 1987 further promoted the formation of the concept of minimally invasive and the rapid development of minimally invasive techniques. With the continuous maturity of minimally invasive techniques, more and more minimally invasive surgeries have replaced traditional surgical operations, and minimally invasive medical technology has become a new direction of medical development.
 
 
 
Endoscopic minimally invasive medical technology is one of the earliest and most mature technologies in minimally invasive medical technology. Minimally invasive endoscopic surgery has the characteristics of less trauma, short operation time, and fast postoperative recovery, and is favored by both doctors and patients. At present, the minimally invasive technology with the endoscopy system as the core has been extended to many departments such as ENT, general surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, thoracic surgery, urology, pediatrics, etc., from simple laparoscopic polyp removal to heart bypass. It is involved that almost all traditional general surgical procedures can be completed by endoscopic minimally invasive surgery. Endoscope minimally invasive technology has become an indispensable technology for the diagnosis and treatment of system diseases such as digestion, respiratory, urinary, and ENT. With the development of modern surgical procedures to limited, intelligent and minimally invasive, it is expected that the proportion of clinical applications of minimally invasive technology will reach 75%.
 
 
 
2. Development status of endoscopic minimally invasive medical market
 
 
 
North America, Europe, and Japan are the main consumer markets for endoscopes. The well-known international endoscope companies Karl Storz, Wolf Brand, Olympus Japan, and Stryker USA are concentrated in these countries and regions. With the promotion and popularization of minimally invasive endoscopy technology, the global medical endoscope market has grown year by year. China's launch of minimally invasive endoscopy treatment is relatively late, but the development speed and popularity are very fast, and the market for medical endoscopes has grown rapidly. As of the end of 2012, there were about 248 domestic speculum manufacturers in China. The larger ones include Zhejiang Tiansong Medical Instrument Co., Ltd., Shenyang Shenda Endoscope Co., Ltd., Hangzhou Haoke Optoelectronic Instrument Co., Ltd., and Hangzhou Guangdian. Medical equipment companies, etc., have a high degree of industry concentration. Through technology introduction and absorption and independent research and development, the quality of these companies' medical endoscope products is narrowing the gap with international advanced companies, and they have even achieved breakthroughs in individual fields and are in a leading position. At present, my country's medical endoscopes have got rid of the situation of relying solely on imports, and domestic medical endoscopes account for about 30% of the market. While the domestic market share has increased, domestic endoscopes have also been exported and maintained a rapid growth momentum.
 
 
 
3. The development prospects of endoscopic minimally invasive medical market
 
 
 
1. The market demand for medical endoscopes continues to grow
 
 
 
With the popularization of endoscope minimally invasive technology and the improvement of endoscope processing technology, the application of endoscope has involved almost all departments such as general surgery, otolaryngology, orthopedics, urology, gynecology, etc., becoming an indispensable medical diagnosis And surgical equipment is also one of the fastest growing products in the global medical device industry. The improvement of medical standards in developing countries and the increase in medical investment have made the application of endoscopes no longer limited to developed countries in Europe and America. The market demand in developing countries such as China, India, and Brazil is growing rapidly. In 2011, the global medical endoscope market was worth US$6.1 billion and is expected to grow to US$9.7 billion by 2016. In 2011, the total industrial output value of my country's medical endoscope industry was about 5.065 billion yuan, net imports were 1.682 billion yuan, and the actual domestic demand reached 6.747 billion yuan. By 2015, this value is expected to increase to 15.615 billion yuan. Consistent with the rapid growth in the market demand for medical endoscopes, China's minimally invasive surgical instruments, imaging systems, cold light sources and other medical endoscope supporting equipment industries have developed rapidly, and the market size of endoscope supporting equipment has maintained the size of the endoscope market. In 2011, it reached 13.497 billion yuan, and it is expected to increase to 31.229 billion yuan in 2015.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
2. Medical care reform drives the investment of medical endoscopes in primary medical institutions
 
 
 
In the past ten years, my country's medical device industry has developed rapidly. In addition to benefiting from the expansion of consumer groups, policy promotion is also a major factor in increasing the domestic medical device market demand. In 2012, the State Council issued the "Plan and Implementation Plan for Deepening the Reform of the Medical and Health System during the "Twelfth Five-Year Plan" period", clarifying that during the "Twelfth Five-Year Plan" period, the coverage rate of medical insurance should be improved, the medical and health system should be improved, and primary medical institutions should be popularized and developed. At present, all primary medical institutions have basically equipped with endoscopic minimally invasive surgery capabilities. With the continuous advancement of medical reform, the demand for medical devices in China's primary medical institutions will show a rapid growth trend. Primary medical institutions are expected to become a new growth point in China's medical device market, and domestic medical endoscopes with higher cost performance will be the first choice of primary medical institutions. .
 
 
 
3. The expansion of medical institutions drives the market demand for medical endoscopes
 
 
 
In 2005, my country had a total of 882,200 medical institutions of various types. By 2011, the number had increased to 954,400, an increase of 72,200 in six years, of which various hospitals increased by 3,300 and primary medical and health institutions increased by 68,500. However, compared with developed countries, the ratio of medical institutions per capita in my country is still low, and the scale of medical and health institutions still has a lot of room for development. With the growth of the scale of medical and health institutions, the demand for annual updates and new purchases of medical endoscopes and supporting surgical instruments will increase accordingly.
 
 
 
4. Increasing residents' income stimulates the growth of demand for minimally invasive medical devices
 
 
 
With the increase in residents' income, per capita medical expenditure will increase accordingly, and they hope to find a healthier treatment. Compared with traditional surgical systems, endoscopic minimally invasive surgery has the advantages of less pain and faster recovery, and is becoming increasingly popular with patients. At present, minimally invasive technology has been popularized in developed countries, and it is still in the initial stage of development in developing countries. With the strengthening of the government's medical support and the increase of residents' income, advanced medical technologies such as endoscopic minimally invasive technology will be more applied.
 
 
 
5. The proportion of substitute imported products continues to increase
