Report Overview

The global procedure trays market size was valued at USD 7.8 billion in 2016. It is projected to expand at a CAGR of 10.5% over the forecast period. Growing cases of surgeries worldwide are one of the key trends in escalating market growth. Procedure trays provide in one set all tools and instruments required to carry out a specific surgical or diagnostic procedure.

U.S. procedure trays market size

Favorable government regulations are encouraging the usage of single-use sterile instruments in order to avoid infections. This, in turn, is stirring up the demand for procedure trays. These kits are mostly preferred during surgical and non-surgical cardiovascular procedures, ophthalmic procedures, orthopedic conditions, wound management, and dental practices.

Procedural trays and kits can help in reducing waste generated during medical procedures by up to 50.0%. Custom procedural kits are time-saving as they enable more procedures to be performed in lesser time. In addition, preparation time also reduces, resulting in lesser patient waiting time, which improves overall work efficiency.

In the U.S., according to the Health Act of 2006, all healthcare facilities are required to implement the code of practice for the prevention and control of healthcare-associated infections. Hence, the adoption of custom procedure kits is becoming imperative in everyday medical practice. Procedure trays are cost-effective and can save up to 30% of the time that is spent on preselection, unwrapping, and sterilizing surgical tools & instruments. Time used by staff or nurses to arrange and procure surgical items can be well spent on enhancing patient care.

Custom procedure trays provide physicians and healthcare providers the opportunity to select required sterile surgical instruments and tools. Preconfigured and prepacked trays eliminate the need for stocking individual components in bulk. Hence, prepacked custom solutions help improve the quality of services as they aid inefficient inventory management.

Introduction of minimally invasive surgeries has resulted in a wider base of the patient population undergoing surgeries each year. Patients are increasingly preferring noninvasive or minimally invasive surgeries due to high risk of infections associated with invasive surgeries. In addition to high risk of infection, noninvasive surgeries require shorter hospital stays, thus saving time and medical costs.

Product Insights

Based on product, the market is segmented into the operating room, angiography, ophthalmology, and other procedure trays. Maintaining sterility in operating rooms is critical to prevent wound infections during or after surgeries. Operating room procedure trays held the highest share in the market in 2016.

Custom procedural trays and packs contain sterile single-use surgical products required for specific surgical procedures to be performed in operating rooms. Governments are further backing the growth of the operating room segment by promoting the use of single-use sterile instruments. The other type of procedural kits that are used in minor procedures includes I.V. start kits, central line dressing trays, suture removal kits, and laceration trays.

End-Use Insights

Hospitals and other healthcare providers have recognized the need to adopt an approach based on data derived from real-time usage of hospital supplies. This is likely to help in identification of cost-saving opportunities and optimization of financial budget allotted for medical supplies. Hospitals accounted for the leading share in the procedure trays market in 2016.

The majority of the surgeries are performed at hospitals. As a cost-saving measure, adoption of procedure trays will contribute to the growth of the market. On the other hand, clinics and other healthcare facilities will witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Increasing preference for minimally invasive surgeries will spur the demand for the product in outpatient care centers.

Regional Insights

Change in economic trends have revved up the adoption rate of procedure trays in the medical supplies industry, especially in technologically and economically advanced regional markets including the U.S., Germany, U.K., Japan. On the other hand, in developing regions, larger organizations witness larger market shares due to flexible regulatory guidelines.

North America dominated the market in 2016 and is expected to maintain its position during the forecast period. Local presence of key market players and various initiatives undertaken by the government to encourage the use of single-use medical supplies to prevent infections are some of the key factors anticipated to contribute to the growth of this region.

Global procedure trays market size

In addition, the growth of the region can be attributed to high adoption of advanced technology, presence of a large pool of geriatric population, increasing reimbursement for surgeries, and rising demand for minimally invasive procedures over traditional methods.

The market in Europe is estimated to witness the fastest growth in the coming years. In Europe, cardiovascular diseases remain the primary cause of death in most of the countries. High per capita income, rising healthcare expenditure, presence of an established healthcare system & healthcare professionals, access to care facilities, availability of advanced devices, and favorable reimbursement policies are some of the key factors supplementing the growth of the regional market.

Procedure trays market Share Insights

Key players in the market engage with surgeons and leaders in the sterile processing departments to formulate kit standardization regulations, based on the latest trends in surgical and non-surgical procedures that rely on the usage of procedural solutions. The real-time knowledge of surgeons, physicians, and OR technicians helps manufacturers in the optimization of procedure trays according to specific indications.

Some of the key market players are Owens & Minor, Inc.; Cardinal Health; 3M Healthcare; and Teleflex. Mergers and acquisitions of already well-established market players are one of the key strategies adopted by several market players. For instance, in 2014, Owens & Minor, Inc. acquired Medical Action Industries, Inc., and ArcRoyal, both already established companies in the field of surgical supplies. In addition, Becton, Dickinson, and Company acquired C. R. Bard, Inc. in 2017.
