Report Overview

The global surgical tables market size was valued at USD 1.22 billion in 2021 and is estimated to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.5% during the forecast period. An increasing number of surgeries due to rising cases of trauma and injuries across the globe is predicted to foster market growth. The rising adoption of advanced surgical tables for improved surgical experience for patients as well as surgeons by various hospitals and healthcare facilities is the major factor anticipated to augment the market growth. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every feature of medical care, including surgical treatment.

Germany surgical tables market size, by type, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

The rising demand for surgical tables during COVID-19 treatment along with the requirement for surgical tables during emergency elective procedures resulted in maintaining the market value throughout the pandemic. The growth rate is also not much affected and is thought to be lucrative during the forecast period. The rising number of hospitals and ambulatory care centers along with the expansion of non-profit organizations is one of the significant factors influencing the market growth. Also, the majority of surgeries are being performed in an operating room than ever before.

As more complex procedures performed in the operating room require the need for surgical tables to handle a variety of procedures/positions, which is anticipated to create a demand for surgical tables in hospitals. Growing competition in the surgical instruments industry is expected to augment the demand for technologically advanced surgical tables during the forecast period. The increasing geriatric population base worldwide is predicted to create high product demand during the forecast period. According to the Population Reference Bureau, the number of Americans aged 65 years and over is estimated to nearly double from 52 million in 2018 to 95 million by 2060.

Such a rise in the number of the elderly population is predicted to consequently result in greater demand for surgical tables for treatment, thereby contributing to the market growth. The rising number of hospital admissions by geriatric patients, specifically those suffering from end-stage chronic diseases that involve surgical treatment, is one of the major factors augmenting the market progression. The rising volume of orthopedic and bariatric surgeries across the globe is leading to a surge in demand for surgical tables during the forecast period. For instance, as per the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, primary hip surgeries (32.7%) and primary knee surgeries (54.4%) were most commonly performed in 2019. Thus, the growing prevalence of targeted diseases is projected to create lucrative growth opportunities for market players.

Product Type Insights

The market is classified into general, specialty, radiolucent, and pediatric surgical tables based on the product types. The general surgical tables segment accounted for the largest market share of around 35% in 2021 owing to the increasing number of surgeries, especially in cardiovascular, ENT, gynecologic, and other general surgeries. The increasing incidence of Cardiovascular Disorders (CVDs) is also creating substantial demand for surgical tables. For instance, according to the CDC, about 655,000 Americans die due to heart diseases each year. In addition, as per the WHO, around 17.9 million people die each year across the globe.

The specialty surgical tables segment held a significant market share in 2021. The specialty surgical tables segment is further divided into neurosurgical tables, orthopedic, laparoscopic, and bariatric surgical tables. The demand for specialty surgical tables is rising due to an increased volume of surgical procedures including bariatric and orthopedic surgeries. Specialty surgical procedures require various surgical methods, that require specific patient positions to allow the surgeons to perform the procedure. Furthermore, increasing investments by various hospitals and organizations to improve surgical treatments and procedures including specialty procedures are anticipated to foster segment growth during the forecast period.

Material Insights

On the basis of materials, the market has been further categorized into metal and carbon composites. The metal segment dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for the largest share of more than 51.8% of the global revenue. Increasing adoption coupled with the rising demand for metal surgical tables on account of their easy availability and low cost is predicted to foster the growth of this segment. Metal surgical tables are more affordable than composite surgical tables, which increases their demand among healthcare professionals. Stainless steel is one of the most widely used metals in the manufacturing of surgical tables.

Stainless steel contains anti-microbial properties for healthcare equipment and operating room. Thus, wide usage of stainless steel-based surgical tables is also estimated to propel the segment growth. The carbon composite segment also held a significant market value in 2021. The positioning surface of the surgical table, which is made of carbon fiber material, can be shifted laterally and longitudinally. The surface, as well as the patient, are moved, by motor, to the preferred position during surgical procedures. Increasing advances associated with carbon composite surgical tables are predicted to create a strong market position.

End-use Insights

On the basis of end-uses, the global market has been further segmented into hospitals, Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASCs), and specialty clinics & trauma centers. The hospital end-use segment dominated the global market in 2021. The segment accounted for the maximum share of around 61.9% of the global revenue in 2021. The number of surgeries performed in hospitals is higher than the number of surgeries performed in any other health care facility on account of the favorable reimbursement scenario and availability of hospitals for primary care in most of the developing countries across the globe.

Investments in surgical devices including surgical tables are gradually rising in hospitals, thereby enhancing the segment growth. The Ambulatory surgical centers segment witnessed over 8.4% CAGR during the forecast period. The growing preference for same-day surgery, significant cost savings and reduction in waiting time, and a rise in the number of patients requiring surgical interventions are among the major factors driving the demand for surgical tables in ambulatory surgery centers. The availability of reimbursement policies for ambulatory surgery procedures is also anticipated to contribute to the growth of this segment.

Type Insights

On the basis of types, the market has been further segmented into powered and non-powered surgical tables. The powered segment dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for the maximum revenue share of more than 69.4%. Powered surgical tables are often battery-operated, reducing the need for electrical cords on the floor. These devices assist the operating room team in positioning the patient through various motor-driven functions, such as tilt, back & leg supports, height adjustment, an inclination of the tabletop, and return-to-level. Such benefits offered by powered surgical tables are predicted to boost segment growth.

Global surgical tables market share, by end use, 2021 (%)

The non-powered segment also accounted for a considerable market share in 2021. With the development in the medical technology sector and rise in patients as well as surgeons highlighting the safety and comfortability factors, hydraulic and non-powered surgical tables have seen a rise in demand in hospital settings, globally. On the other hand, non-powered surgical tables do not have auto-control features, which might affect the focus of a healthcare professional or surgeon during the surgical procedure. This, in turn, is anticipated to hamper the segment growth during the forecast period.

Regional Insights

The North America region held the largest market share of 35.00% in 2021. This can be attributed to the rising prevalence of chronic disorders, such as neurological, cardiovascular, ophthalmic, and other disorders. In addition, technological advancements along with the rise in surgical procedure volumes are anticipated to fuel the regional market growth. Furthermore, the presence of well-established hospitals and trauma centers along with the presence of major players operating in the U.S. are contributing to the market growth. The Europe region accounted for the second-highest market share and is expected to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast period. The rising prevalence of chronic disorders in European countries is estimated to create lucrative growth opportunities for market players.

The rising geriatric population base that requires surgeries considerably boosts the demand for surgical tables. This, in turn, is anticipated to boost the regional market growth. Asia Pacific is predicted to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Rising disposable income, especially in countries, such as China and India, along with the presence of a large patient pool in the region is anticipated to foster market growth. With a considerable increase in the number of surgeries being performed, owing to a rise in the prevalence of chronic diseases, the demand for surgical tables is growing. In addition, increasing healthcare expenditure in China and Japan is expected to drive the product demand over the forecast period.
