Global surgical imaging market is expected to witness an exponential growth over the coming seven years, owing to increasing geriatric population base globally coupled with adoption of imaging devices by hospitals especially in developed economies. Surgical imaging equipments are instrumental in providing greater accuracy and efficiency while performing surgeries. Additionally, rising funding via public and private sectors pertaining to R&D of surgical imaging equipments and supportive government policies are further expected to boost growth of this market. However, cost intensive nature of mobile C-arms is expected to hamper the market growth in near future.
The overall global surgical imaging market is broadly classified on the basis of product and application. On the basis of products, it is divided into two types such as mobile C-arms and mini C-arms. Mobile C-arm is expected to gain popularity in near future owing to its increasing usage in cardiovascular, orthopaedic & trauma, neurosurgery, and gastroenterology surgeries and its ability to provide higher resolution and manipulation free clear images. The application market is studied with respect to foot & ankle, hand & wrist, paediatric surgeries, neurosurgery, orthopaedic & trauma, gastroenterology surgery and cardiovascular surgery. The orthopaedic and trauma sector is expected to witness a rapid growth over the forecast period due to rising orthopaedic surgeries coupled with preference by the patients for minimum intrusive procedures.
