Increasing number of hospitals adopting MIS technology coupled with the rising number of chronic illnesses and requires surgical procedures is further fueling the growth of the operating room integration market. For instance, in the U.S. approximately half of the surgeries are done with the MIS technology.

Rising number of surgical interventions and an increasing number of MIS being carried out due to several benefits such as reduced hospital stay, less painful features, and high focus on patient safety in OR. As technology continues to grow, telemedicine and robotic surgery have become more common healthcare services and operating room integration is expected to become an industry-standard in the coming years.

The orthopedic surgery segment is anticipated to witness the lucrative growth rate of around 11.5% over the forecast period due to increasing demand for the orthopedic procedure in 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 189.0% i.e. 1.3 million procedures.

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