Market Insights

Growing developments in medical technology are enabling various product launches in the market. Several leading and startup companies have enhanced their product development and upgrade activities that are leveraging the market’s growth. For instance, in February 2020, Orascoptic announced a new range of medical loupe, Tempo Refined Fit, for its custom product portfolio. The product is designed to provide extra comfort for clinicians. The customized product is designed to fit facial structures with a lower nose bridge and higher cheekbones, providing definitive comfort and function. The company has also announced another breakthrough in July 2019 by introducing TruColor. It is a development in the loupe illumination segment. The device is designed to achieve high color rendering index (CRI) illumination. The development has enabled integration of LED lights with 90 CRI illumination in the headband medical loupe. TruColor offers to visualize rendering colors much closer to the natural colors. Thus, it enables a clear vision of the surgical site and oral surfaces that are washed-out during cleaning process and provide low color accuracy during the surgical procedures.

Similarly, in February 2019, Enova Illumination announced its crafted loupes for commercialization in the US. The company launched products in different color variants, such as green, blue, pink, silver, and black. In November 2020, it introduced Axis LED Light with Activ Battery System. It is an LED light solution designed with a clip-on magnetic light with a wearable neckband battery. It offers improved comfort and visualization to users while performing dental, oral and maxillofacial, and cosmetic facial procedures. The product provides 30,000-lux illuminance for over five working hours and delivers uniform light across the surgical sites without a shadow. The developments have enabled providers to offer comfort to the users and maintain their posture during the procedures. In addition, the additional features allow easy brightness control settings during clinical and surgical procedures. Such product launches in the market are likely to drive the market during the forecast period.

Rising Need of Medical Loupes During Surgical Procedures

Surgical care is important for managing diversified health conditions, such as injuries, infections, obstructed labor, malignancy, and cardiovascular diseases. Similarly, ophthalmic and ears-nose-throat (ENT) surgeries are widely performed worldwide. These surgical procedures require greater magnification as the surgeon needs to visualize nerves, vascular pedicles, and the veins' anastomoses. The technically advanced medical loupes with LED lights helps in providing bright lights and helps surgeons to visualize surgical site in bright lights with higher resolution. Therefore, this advantage is increasing the demand highly for medical loupes.

Similarly, the growing trend for minimally invasive surgeries is driving the medical loupes market. These surgeries are performed with specialized equipment that utilizes advanced technologies, such as augmented reality (AR). The equipment requires favorable conditions and magnified visuals while performing surgeries. Therefore, to get a magnified image quality, medical loupes are integrated with AR technology. The AR technology offers microscopic images and a tracking system to track the movements of tools while suturing.

Depending upon the severity of the health condition, surgical procedures are lengthy or time-consuming. A surgeon and assisting staff need to bend their head and neck for a more extended period, which stresses the body. Wearing medical loupes provides an upright posture and puts less stress and strain on the body. The other advantages of medical loupes are reduced eye strain, enhanced visual sharpness, and improved treatment results.

It is expected that growing numbers of surgical producers worldwide are likely to generate significant demand for medical loupes. According to the Lancet Commission for Global Surgery report—Global Surgery 2030: evidence and solutions for achieving health, welfare, and economic development—published in 2015, ~5000 surgeries were performed to reduce the surgical burden of diseases of nearly 100,000 people in low- middle-income countries. The uncertainty of human health due to changing lifestyles and habits is likely to increase the incidence of chronic diseases, further leading to surgical procedures. Therefore, it is expected that the advantages of medical loupes coupled with increasing numbers of surgical procedures are likely to drive the market during the forecast period.
