The growing popularity of minimally invasive procedures owing to associated benefits such as lesser trauma, reduced hospital stays, and cost-effective procedures is one of the contributing factors responsible for the expansion of the market. Increasing investment by government bodies across the globe is also driving the market. For instance, the Indian government, under its Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana approved INR 620 crores for the cost of construction and INR 200 crores for the procurement of medical equipment & modular operation theaters. In 2014, the Government of Mexico released a National Infrastructure Program that indicates major projects to be executed through 2018. The program covers telecommunication, transportation, energy, water, tourism, and health sectors. For the health sector, the government has undertaken 87 projects with an investment of USD 6.1 billion to upgrade several hospitals & clinics and construct new specialized ones.

Furthermore, rising investments for the up-gradation of hospitals, the development of new operating rooms, and an increase in the number of new hospitals & ambulatory surgery centers are expected to propel growth in the future. In 2016, KIMS hospital in Kent, UK, opened its fifth operating theater to cope up with growing demand for orthopedic surgeries and invested GBP 250,000 in new technologies for its newly opened operating room. In 2016, the Wanda Group, a Chinese conglomerate, decided to invest CNY15 billion for the development of hospitals across the country. The investment is intended for building three hospitals in Chengdu, Qingdao, and Shanghai. Under this initiative, Wanda Group has partnered with UK-based International Hospitals Group (IHG) that would be managing the new hospitals constructed.

Improving healthcare infrastructure in emerging economies, rising interest of foreign hospital chains in expanding their networks in these economies, and growing collaborations between hospitals & foreign investors are anticipated to drive the market. In 2015, the Brazilian government enacted a new amendment that allows foreign investments in healthcare companies, hospitals, and specialized clinics.

Product Insights

In 2016, the anesthesia devices segment held the largest chunk of the market. Technological advancements and growing usage of anesthesia machines in the surgery centers contribute to a large share of the segment. Anesthesia machines are commonly used in almost all types of surgeries. Also, the rapid adoption of the Anesthesia Information Management Systems (AIMS) contributes to the large share of the revenue share.

The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and illnesses has led to a rise in surgical procedures. Anesthesia plays a crucial role in surgery, and anesthesia equipment plays a vital role in providing sufficient & accurate delivery of anesthesia necessary for surgical procedures. The increasing geriatric population who are highly susceptible to various disorders and degenerative diseases is one of the key factors responsible for the rising demand for surgeries.

However, the endoscopes segment is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. Increasing patient preference for endoscopic procedures, rising awareness about minimally invasive procedures, and growing adoption of technological innovations in surgical procedures are some of the driving forces responsible for the growth of the segment in the coming years. The rise in the incidence of cancer, gastrointestinal disorders, and lifestyle-related diseases are expected to further expand the market.

End-use Insights

In 2016, the hospital segment held the majority of the share accounting for about 75%.

Hospitals are focusing on investing in the up-gradation of operation theaters as they are one of the highest revenue-generating sources. Furthermore, the growing demand for hybrid operating rooms and increasing investments in infrastructure & advanced technologies for efficient outcomes are also expected to drive growth.

For instance, in March 2017, Saint Michael’s Medical Center, New Jersey, U.S. invested around more than USD 21 million in its systems and medical equipment to improve and modernize the hospital and make it technologically advanced. The new equipment being installed in the OR include high-resolution monitors, operating towers, endoscopic towers, C-arms, and other equipment.

Ambulatory surgical centers are projected to emerge as the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. The number of ambulatory surgical centers has grown owing to rising demand from key participants in surgical care that includes patients, physicians, and insurers. The surging number of ambulatory surgical centers and growing demand is driven by patient satisfaction, high quality, cost-effective procedures, and efficient practices by physicians are anticipated to propel the growth of the market.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the operating room equipment market in 2016 with a revenue share of around 37.3%. Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases in the region, large geriatric population base, sophisticated healthcare infrastructure, and rising number of ambulatory surgical centers are key market growth drivers. Rising demand for minimally invasive surgeries and higher adoption of technological advancements are also driving growth in the region.

Asia Pacific is expected to register the fastest growth over the coming years. Factors responsible for faster emergence are a high prevalence of chronic diseases, large patient pools, and a growing number of hospitals & healthcare facilities with improving infrastructure in the region. The large population base with high unmet needs in the region attracts many foreign investors to expand their business in emerging markets such as India, China, and Singapore.

Furthermore, the growing trend of medical tourism in Asian countries is expected to contribute to growth in the region. Affordability of treatment, ease of access, government support, and the emergence of new medical tourism destinations in the Asia Pacific region is anticipated to contribute to the growth of the market in the region. Thailand, Malaysia, South Korea, Singapore, India, and China are some of the popular medical tourist destinations in the Asia Pacific and are expected to experience a boom in the coming years.
