Considering the number and range of surgical procedures being conducted on a daily basis around the world, most operating rooms today are equipped with technologically advanced equipment and functions that can ensure better handling by surgeons and other staff, more flexibility, greater operational efficiency, and better results. The operating room equipment market has been witnessing steady growth over the years as surgeries become more complex.
A recent trend observed in this market is the creation of hybrid operating rooms, wherein surgical as well as non-surgical functions are being carried out. Some key nonsurgical functions include radiology, diagnostics, and patient monitoring.
With a highly fragmented vendor landscape, the operating room equipment market is characterized by the presence of a number of leading companies. Most of them are focused on innovation, pushing the market to expand at a strong 6.68% CAGR during the forecast period. The value of the operating room equipment market is poised to reach US$42 bn by 2023.
Complex Surgeries Warrant Need for Operating Tables with Varied Functions and Features
Movable imaging systems hold a strong position in the operating room equipment market, in terms of revenue. The segment is poised for rapid growth through 2023 owing to increased funding by government bodies, especially in North America, for the promotion of movable imaging systems. There are several ongoing efforts at regional scales as well, to modernize and upgrade hospitals supported by state or local organizations. This is likely to positively impact the sales and adoption of movable imaging systems.
Operating room integration systems are also slated to register impressive growth over the course of the forecast period thanks to increased demand for improved connectivity between medical devices and the hospitals they are being used in and the rising development of smart infrastructure at medical facilities.
Operating tables also form a key segment of the global operating room equipment market, thanks to the constant evolution of surgical procedures around the world. As surgeries become more and more complex, the need for technologically advanced, varied, and ergonomically designed operating tables has emerged.
