Adoption of a patient-centric approach for surgery further led to improved use of ORs in a more sophisticated way. These types of initiatives are anticipated to fuel market growth over the forecast period. Furthermore, an increasing number of MIS procedures and their benefits such as reduced hospital stays, rapid adoption of integrated systems to reduce complexity in OR is stimulating market growth. Increasing demand for improving surgical workflow in OR, and to manage, share and store video-rich content across hospitals is also boosting the OR integration market growth.

However, the lack of skilled surgeons in developing countries and the high cost of initial investment are factors restraining market growth. This high cost can be attributed to the high-priced integrated advanced technology that is being adopted in OR, especially in small size hospitals.

Component Insights

The software segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of over 50.0% as of 2020, owing to various benefits associated with its use. These integrated software solutions offer seamless communication within various systems operational in OR to streamline surgical workflows and ensure ease of use and effective operation.

In addition, companies are also marking their presence in the market for operating room integration by adopting attainment strategies to broaden their portfolio in the operating room integration space. For instance, in 2017, Stryker's Endoscopy Division started a program named "OR of the Future''. The program uses holographic technology and allows customers to visualize how the company's surgical equipment and displays will operate in ORs. Such types of initiatives to promote integrated OR technologies are anticipated to boost the adoption of integrated ORs in the near future.

Device Type Insights

The documentation management systems segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 36.0% in 2020 owing to its wide applications in ORs. This system helps in managing all the records from various sources and presents them on a single platform to help surgeons with patients’ history and other necessary information during the surgery.

Operating rooms are increasingly becoming complex and congested with the inclusion of a variety of equipment such as surgical lights, operating tables, and surgical displays. In basic ORs, individual devices are arranged which are pulled or pushed back according to their use, cords and cables are spread all over the room. This heightens the risk of tripping or pulling out the essential cord during surgery or damaging any equipment. Integrated operating rooms (I-ORs) help to curb this problem. The high demand for MIS has spurred the implementation of I-ORs owing to its associated advantages such as safety.

In addition, industry players are involved in continuous research and development activities for application innovation. For instance, in January 2021, ADLINK Technology, Inc. launched a series of medical-grade surgical monitors—the ASM (ADLINK Surgical Monitor) series to visualize videos and still images from multiple clinical imaging systems in ORs, ICUs, and emergency and examination rooms. The ASM series is available in sizes from 23.8 inches to 32 inches and can be customized as per the needs of medical device OEMs. These types of innovations are anticipated to boost its adoption over the forecast period.

For instance, in the U.S. approximately half of the surgeries are done with MIS technology.

The rising number of surgical interventions with the high number of MIS being carried out due to its several benefits such as reduced hospital stay, less painful features, and high focus on patient safety in OR are driving the demand. As this technology continues to grow along with telemedicine and robotic surgery become more common healthcare services, the I-ORs are expected to become an industry-standard in the coming years.

The orthopedic surgery segment is anticipated to witness a lucrative growth rate of around 11.5% over the forecast period due to increasing demand for the orthopedic procedure in the coming years. For instance, according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons 2018, total joint replacement is the most performed elective surgical procedure in the U.S. and by 2030, total knee replacement is expected to reach 189% i.e., 1.28 million procedures.

Therefore, the rising number of orthopedic procedures demands an integrated OR to reduce the burden of surgeons and efficiently manage surgical workflow. Moreover, the increasing demand for advanced healthcare infrastructure, the high adoption rate of I-ORs due to the expanding pool of patients with chronic diseases is further boosting the market growth.

End-use Insights

The hospital segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of over 63.0% in 2020. This growth is owing to the high penetration of integrated ORs. With the large patient population being exposed to chronic diseases there is a need for I-ORs to reduce the burden on physicians and complexity so that they can efficiently manage their surgical workflow.
