report to their offering.
An operating room (OR) is a facility within a hospital or a clinic where various surgeries are performed on patients in order to treat different physiological and pathological conditions. Technological advancements have brought a lot of change in the way surgical procedures are carried out today. Operating rooms are becoming more spacious with new and advanced operating tables, operating room lights, high resolution and high definition surgical imaging displays, that have become an indispensable part of modern hybrid operating rooms.
The market for operating room equipment can be broadly segmented into operating tables, OR lights, surgical booms, OR integration systems and surgical imaging displays. The operating tables market has been further segmented into general operating tables and specialty operating tables. In 2012, the operating tables segment held the largest share (30.6%) of the total market, followed by operating room lights. During the forecast period 2013 to 2019, the demand for general operating tables is expected to be stagnant or very slow and the overall growth will be offset by the increasing demand of specialty surgery tables. The OR integration systems market has been predicted as the fastest growing segment during the forecast period.
Some of the major factors expected to drive growth of the OR equipment market during the forecast period include increasing number of ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs) across the globe, rising demand for a wide range of modern operating room equipment and growing trend for adopting hybrid operating rooms. According to the U.S. Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC), during 2006 to 2010, the number of Medicare-certified ASCs increased by an average annual rate of 3.6% in the country, and this continuous increase in the number of ASCs is likely to contribute to the increasing demand for various operating room equipment. Hybrid ORs are an advanced form of operation theatres that involve integration of surgical function with imaging modalities and ensure enhanced operational efficiency. Hybrid operating rooms offer surgeons and other healthcare professionals greater operational flexibility by enabling easy access to various surgical as well as imaging equipment such as CT and MRI scanners.
North America held the largest share in the global operating room equipment market in terms of revenue in 2012. One of the key factors responsible for this region to hold leadership position is the presence of major players in the U.S. that consider North American market as their primary market for revenue generation and thus many technological advancements are first introduced in this market. Europe held the second largest market in 2012, followed by Asia-Pacific.
