Inquire before buying

Surgical lights are center-stage medical devices used in procedure rooms and surgical suites. These devices are pivotal in offering efficient illumination at operating site, for providing optimum visualization  to the surgeon. Surgical lights offer various features including negligible heating over longer durations, shadow-less illumination, and pure white light, which allows the staff to efficiently perform the surgical procedures. There are various types of surgical lights, used for different procedures in a healthcare facility. Also, manufacturers offer products with varied brightness ranges (maximum 160,000 Lux) and different dimensions of surgical lights, including single head, dual head, etc.

Technological advancements in surgical lights have been a mainstay of growth in this market globally. The shift of technology of surgical lights from halogen lights to LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology, has played a crucial role l in fueling the demand for these devices in the operating lights market. Various market players  are  constantly focusing on R&D to offer advanced operating lights in the market. For instance, Trumpf Medical (a part of HIllRom Services, Inc.), offers innovative surgical lights with features such as multi-lens matrix, adjustable color temperature management, and active shadow management for procedures in the operating rooms, surgical suites, and procedure rooms.

The gradual shift of technology from halogen to LED surgical lights is gaining pace especially in emerging countries such as China, India, Brazil, etc., where  healthcare facilities are now focused on replacement of halogen lights with LED lights. The overall cost benefits, combined with improved efficiency during the surgical procedure offered by LED lights, is propelling the operating lights market growth.

“Increasing Demand for Advanced Healthcare Facilities to Drive the  Market”

Healthcare systems in emerging countries are witnessing influx of private players, entering directly or through public-private-partnerships (PPP’s), citing the lucrative demand for advanced healthcare facilities in these countries. Currently, prolonged patient wait times, unmet patient medical needs, and rising healthcare associated indirect expenses are expected to increase the demand for new healthcare facilities globally. Moreover, high investments by various governments are offering significant growth opportunities for healthcare facilities especially in emerging countries. For instance, in 2017, Aster DM Healthcare, a private hospital group in India announced the plan to set-up 5 new hospitals in the country, with one 750-bed facility in Kerala, and few 200-250 bed capacity hospitals in other cities of India.

Similar examples of public private partnerships are witnessed in countries such as Brazil, China, among others, where the public healthcare system is overburdened with the flow of patients. This, along withthelack of advanced facilities, has opened doors for private players. Further to this, it has led to the expansion of existing facilities, leading to increasing number of operating rooms per hospital. The growing number of operating rooms in these healthcare facilities is fueling the demand for new surgical lights..

“Increasing Number of Surgical Procedures to Stoke Demand for Surgical Lights”

The life cycle of a surgical light is measured in hours. An advanced LED surgical light offers a life cycle of an estimated 40,000 hours to 60,000 hours. Increasing number of cardiovascular, neurological, and dental surgical procedures are prominently responsible for the usage of surgical lights for longer duration, which is leading to a comparatively faster replacement of these lights in operating rooms. For instance, according to European Union Statistics, an estimated 82,000 cataract surgeries were performed in Germany in 2016. The  number is expected to increase  two fold by 2020.

This is projected to fuel the demand for new surgical lights and eventually boost the growth of the operating lights market during the forecast period. Also, the exponential increase in the prevalence of chronic conditions, coupled with rising per capita expenditures, is anticipated to boost the number of surgical procedures, resulting into the growth of the market by 2026.


By Technology Outlook

“LED Segment to Register Comparatively Higher CAGR During the Forecast Period”

Increasing preference towards LED technology in healthcare settings is driving the global market. Certain benefits offered by LED lights such as long term cost reduction, quality, and quantity of illumination for deep cavities and adequate intensity of illumination are projected to boost the adoption of LED lights during the forecast period. This is further augmented by the introduction of advanced LED surgical lights by market players, with operational benefits over halogen lights which has proven instrumental in growing preference of surgeons and other key decision makers towards LED technology.
