Market Insights

Increasing Number of Hospitals and Clinics Drives Operating Tables Market Growth

The hospital industry across the world is growing at a rapid pace. Although the average hospital stays for a single patient has been slightly decreased from 7 days to 5–6 days in the last couple of decades, the total number of hospital admissions has increased in the last 5–6 years. Moreover, according to the American Hospital Association, the total number of all hospitals in the US in 2019 was 6,090.      

According to the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), the hospital and diagnostic centers in India have attracted Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) worth US$ 6 billion in the last couple of decades. According to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the Government of India, India and Cuba signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to increase cooperation in the areas of health and medicine. Furthermore, a de-merger between Fortis Healthcare and Manipal Hospitals Enterprises has been carried out to raise US$ 602.41 million, which can be further invested to expand hospital infrastructure in Manipal Hospital Enterprise. The operating tables industry in India is booming owing to a few factors such as rising government and private sector investments, increasing geriatric population, and surging hospital count.

Hospitals are known to amplify the effectiveness and quality of healthcare. Moreover, the World Health Organization (WHO) states that hospitals are an essential part of health system development. This has drawn the attention of Health Ministries in multiple countries to focus on improving the healthcare infrastructure and establish a hospital and clinical facilities in rural and urban areas. For instance, in November 2017, Japan’s Health Ministry made free access to healthcare centers available in the country through the establishment of new hospitals. Thus, the rising number of hospitals and clinics across the world boosts the growth of the operating tables market.

Surging Number of Surgical Procedures Contribute Significantly to Operating Tables Market Growth

There is a rise in the number of cardiovascular surgeries and general surgeries performed across the world. The incidence of cardiovascular diseases has increased in European countries over the last 25 years. In the region, conditions and symptoms, such as a rise in diabetic cases and lifestyle changes, are leading to an increasing number of cardiovascular surgeries and general surgeries. According to a longtime voluntary registry founded by the German Society for Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery (GSTCVS), in 2018, overall, 174,902 cardiac, thoracic, and vascular surgical procedures were reported to the registry among them. In addition, the number of isolated heart transplantations grew to 312 in 2018, an increase of 23% compared to the previous year. Along with cardiovascular surgeries, the number of general surgeries is also increasing, which fuels the growth of the operating tables market.

Cancer and diabetes are the leading cause of mortality across the globe. For instance, as per a study carried out by the American Cancer Society (ACS), in 2018, ~1,735,350 new cancer cases were diagnosed in the US. Furthermore, according to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), in 2017, an estimated 46 million Americans were suffering from diabetes. The number is expected to reach 62 million by 2045. The same study also mentioned that ~425 million people worldwide were suffering from diabetes in 2017, and the number is likely to reach ~629 million by 2045. Such a high prevalence of chronic conditions increases the number of surgical procedures. Moreover, according to the data published by the Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society of India in 2020, the number of bariatric surgeries in India increased by around 86.7% during 2014–2018 in India. In addition, according to the study published by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, in 2019, around 252,000 weight loss surgeries were performed in the US.

In 2018, according to Globocan, around 16,209 new breast cancer cases were registered in the Netherlands. The number is large in comparison to other types of cancers. According to an article published in 2017 by Elsevier ltd, around 1 to 3% of the female population carry breast implants in the Netherlands. Breast surgeries are among the most common procedures in plastic surgeries performed in the country. The increasing number of surgical procedures is creating a need for operating tables. Therefore, the staggering prevalence of chronic conditions and rising surgical procedures generate the demand for operating tables, which fuels the growth of the operating table market.  

The number of road accidents is increasing across the world. For instance, according to the National Inter-ministerial Observatory of Road Safety (ONISR), in France, 6,520 people were injured in road accidents in May 2018. The surging number of road accidents eventually leads to the rise in the number of orthopedic procedures and treatments, which, in turn, is boosting the growth of the operating table market.

Product Type Insights              

Based on product type, the global operating tables market is segmented into general surgery tables, specialty surgery tables, radiolucent operating tables, and pediatric operating tables. The market for the specialty surgery tables segment is sub segmented into orthopedic surgery, neurosurgical, laparoscopic, and bariatric surgery. In 2020, the general surgery tables segment held the largest market share. However, the specialty surgery tables segment is expected to register the highest CAGR in the market during 2021–2028. A general surgical table is designed for versatility and adaptability across a wide array of operations. The table can be adjusted for height and length as well as can be tilted to either side. The rising burden of chronic diseases is one of the major factors propelling the demand for operating tables across the world.     

Technology Insights

Based on technology, the operating tables market is bifurcated into non-powered and powered. The non-powered segment is likely to hold a larger market share in 2021, and it is expected to dominate the market by 2028. Owing to the advancements in surgeries and other medical procedures, healthcare professionals across the world need adjustable equipment that can be precise, fast, and easy to control. In powered operating tables, there is a source of power control that operates various settings, such as the movement of the table, adjustment of height, and the inclination of the tabletop. These aspects are propelling the market growth for the technology segment.

End User Insights

Based on end user, the operating tables market is segmented into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and specialty clinics. The hospitals segment is likely to hold the largest market share, and it is expected to dominate the market by 2028. The ambulatory surgical centers segment is expected to lead the market as the centers offer cost-effective services and convenient environment, which is less stressful than hospitals. The increasing number of ASCs across the world is driving the market growth for the ambulatory surgical centers segment.

Healthcare systems are overburdened owing to the COVID-19 outbreak pandemic, and the delivery of medical care to all patients has become a challenge worldwide. In addition, the medical device industry is witnessing a negative impact of the pandemic. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, medical device companies are finding difficulties in managing their operations. Many companies offering operating tables have their business operations in the US. The outbreak has adversely affected their businesses owing to the restriction on the distribution of products and the temporary closure of companies’ facilities. However, gradually hospitals have started resuming elective procedures as the COVID-19 recovery rate is increasing. This factor is propelling the demand for medical equipment, such as operating tables, which is expected to bolster the market growth in the coming years.
