Industry Insights

The global surgical microscopes market size was estimated at USD 542.1 million in 2016. Increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular disorders, which need surgical intervention, is anticipated to boost demand for surgical microscopes over the forecast period.

Prevalence of neurological, gynecological, ophthalmic, and dental disorders, in addition to diseases like cancer, is increasing year-on-year. For instance, as per statistics published by the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 8.2 million die from cancer each year, which accounts for 13.0% deaths worldwide. The treatment of these disorders requires surgical intervention and microsurgery at certain times, increasing the demand for surgical microscopes.

Introduction of imaginative degrees of progress on the grounds of precision, transportability, and cost-ampleness is required to serve this market as a driver in the midst of gauge time allotment. Mechanical advancements, for instance, red reflex edification development and wide edge structure, are significant cases identifying with mechanical movements.

Demand for minimally invasive procedures/surgeries (MIS) is on a rise. These procedures result in lesser trauma for patients and quicker recovery compared to invasive procedures. Increase in volume of these procedures is anticipated to follow the same trend and increase exponentially. Surgical microscopes are key elements in microsurgeries set-up, as they help in better visualization.

Rapid expansion of healthcare settings, especially in developing regions, is boosting market growth. For instance, in 2014, the Saudi Arabian government allocated USD 28 billion to the health and development sectors. This grant is expected to fund 17 new hospitals and expansion of 137 hospitals and primary health centers.

Type Insights

The market, based on type, is divided into on casters, wall mounted, tabletop, and ceiling mounted. The on casters segment held a significant share in 2016 and is anticipated to grow at a lucrative rate over the forecast period. Portability and better cleaning maintenance capability of these devices are some of the key factors driving their growth.

On casters microscopes are devices mounted on single, double, or compound wheels. Mounting on wheels provides users an option of portability, greater flexibility, and easy cleaning capabilities. Many players, including market leaders such as Zeiss and Leica Microsystems, are providing the option of portability for all surgical microscopes.

Application Insights

Key application segments in the surgical microscopes market include ENT surgery, dentistry, oncology, gynecology, urology, ophthalmology, plastic and reconstructive surgery, neurosurgeries, and spine surgeries. Oncology dominated the market with a 27.1% share in 2016. Rising prevalence and complexity of chronic conditions facilitates the use of advanced techniques, including surgical microscopes.

Even though the average cancer prevalence is rather high in U.S., the cases of cancer in China sum up to be more owing to the size of its population. This gives an opportunity for market players to invest in the APAC region.

The oncology segment is followed by the neurology and spinal surgeries segment, which is expected to exhibit a lucrative CAGR of 13.6% during the forecast period. The dentistry and ophthalmology segments are also anticipated to showcase steady growth with rising demand for cosmetic dentistry and increasing cataract surgeries.

End-use Insights

The market, by end use, is segmented into hospitals, physician’s/dentist’s clinic, and other outpatient settings. Hospitals form the largest end-use segment of microscopes. Rising volume of surgeries, supportive government financing capabilities, higher volume of patients, and greater financing opportunities are some of the high impact rendering drivers for this segment.

The physician’s/dentist’s independent clinic segment is expanding at a significant CAGR of 12.4% over the forecast period. Availability of smaller microscopes and a booming dentistry industry is anticipated to drive this segment.

Regional Insights

Geographically, this industry is divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa. North America dominated the industry with around 39.2% share in 2016. Sophisticated healthcare facilities in the region as well as availability of reimbursement facilities over medical treatments have facilitated greater usage of this equipment. Moreover, prevalence of chronic disorders in this region is substantially higher than the global average; thus, contributing to the growth of the North America market.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. Supportive government policies to improve healthcare system, along with ongoing economic developments, are anticipated to be the governing factors for growth.

Surgical Microscopes Market Share Insights
