The procedure trays market was valued at US$ 21,536.67 million in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 45,926.87 million by 2030. It is estimated to register a CAGR of 9.9% during 2022–2030.

Market Insights and Analyst View:

Procedure trays are also known as surgical instrument trays. These are flat open/closed containers that hold surgical instruments. Each procedure tray contains the instruments needed to perform a surgical procedure. These trays are commonly used in hospitals, laboratories, and clinics. Instruments must be sterilized before they can safely remove bodily fluids or debris from the body, and autoclaves use these containers to protect their contents. The demand for procedure trays market is continuously growing due to the increasing number of surgical procedures and the surge in medical tourism.

Growth Drivers and Challenges:

The prevalence of health conditions such as cardiovascular diseases, obstructed labor, injuries, and malignancies trigger the need for surgical procedures. According to research by the World Health Organization (WHO), the number of cesarean sections continues to increase worldwide, accounting for more than one in five (21%) births. This number is expected to rise over the coming decade, with almost a third (29%) of all births likely to be by cesarean section by 2030. Advances in surgical, anesthetic, and critical care techniques have resulted in a greater proportion of the growing elderly population undergoing surgical procedures. According to the US Census Board, about 13% of the total population in the US is over 65 years old, and it is estimated that this percentage will reach 20% by 2030. According to WHO, the world geriatric population is expected to reach 1.5 billion by 2050.

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) data, ~20 million major surgeries occur annually in Europe. According to Eurostat, in 2020, ~3.66 million cataract surgeries and ~1.12 million cesarean sections were performed in the European Union (EU). In most EU member countries, cesarean sections varied from 200 to 400 per 100,000 habitants in 2020. According to Dubai Health Authority (DHA), ~159,000 surgeries were performed in Dubai in 2021. As per the same source, the number of people seeking cosmetic surgeries in Dubai doubled from 223,507 in 2020 to 583,909 in 2022. According to Eurostat, transluminal coronary angioplasties were most common in Croatia and Germany in 2020; on average, the procedures were performed 462 and 384 times per 100,000 inhabitants, respectively.

Thus, owing to the increasing number of surgeries worldwide, there is a growing demand for procedure trays that hold instruments while performing surgical procedures.

Procedure trays help organize the operation theater or laboratory; however, the utmost problem comes at the disposal point. Many challenges are associated with planning surgical kits, but the tight corner is the need for more standardization among doctors. In the process of surgical instrument tray rationalization, it is important to assess the usability of the surgical instrument. The instrument's usability may vary depending on the operating surgeon's preference. When clinical practice and component usage are standardized, creating a kit that meets end-user needs is easier while providing labor efficiencies and cost-effectiveness expected from a kitting program. Thus, concerns regarding the safe disposal of procedure trays are one of the factors challenging the market growth.

Based on end user, the procedure tray market is divided into hospitals & clinics, ambulatory surgical centers, and others. Hospitals provide healthcare to people through complicated but specialized scientific equipment. Hospitals are classified as general, specialty, or government, depending on their source of income. The most common form of the hospital is a general hospital, which has an emergency department to deal with medical emergencies and sudden illnesses. Hospitals play an important role in the healthcare system and offer advanced treatment options for patients with chronic and hard-to-heal wounds. Most surgeries are performed in hospitals, as they provide continuous patient care and monitoring.

Regional Analysis:

Based on geography, the procedure trays market is divided into five key regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South & Central America, and Middle East & Africa. The market in North America has been analyzed with a prime focus on three major countries—the US, Canada, and Mexico. An increasing aging population and chronic disease prevalence, along with high awareness about healthcare and technologically advanced surgical procedures, are likely to catalyze the demand for surgical procedures in North America. As per to an article published by International Osteoporosis Foundation, 44 million people in America above 50 years had osteoporosis in 2020. The US is estimated to hold the largest procedure tray market share during the forecast period. According to Regenexx, more than 7 million orthopedic surgeries were performed in 2021 in the US. As per the National Center for Health Statistics, more than 40 million surgeries are performed yearly, which is expected to grow exponentially.

According to the American Psychological Association, the geriatric population in the US is currently 46 million and is supposed to double by 2060, which will increase the number of surgeries, coupled with advancements in technology, and drive the procedure trays market growth. According to the Canadian Institute of Information, in 2020–2021, 55,300 hip and 55,285 knee replacements were performed in Canada. Cataract surgery is among the most performed surgeries in Canada and is expected to more than double in volume over the next 25 years. In Canada, joint replacement surgeries and cataract surgeries are on the rise, which is surging the demand for procedure trays. According to Statista, in 2022, the number of heart transplants performed in Mexico amounted to 42 procedures, up from the 26 interventions recorded the previous year. Thus, the increasing number of surgeries is surging the demand for procedure trays in the region.

Procedure Trays Market Opportunity:

With rapid developments in the healthcare IT sector, companies manufacturing procedure trays focus on harnessing advanced technologies to enhance the experience of using procedure trays. Procedure trays carry various instruments used in surgical procedures; however, a few instruments may not be used during the procedure. Each procedure tray can typically cost more than US$ 350,000, and having every type of set on the shelf at each surgical facility is not feasible, owing to which manufacturers generally loan them to hospitals. Once a procedure is executed, the hospital returns the instrument tray to the manufacturer for storage and redistribution to other hospitals. Each time a hospital returns a tray, the manufacturer needs to check for missing instruments and ensure that they are correctly placed, cleaned, and fit for use in the next procedure. As this checking may become hectic for manufacturers, they are focused on using data analytics tools and cloud-based platforms to maintain the record of the instruments used during surgery. For instance, BD and Johnson & Johnson MedTech collaborate with cloud-based companies to engineer a scalable solution to improve the tracking and checking of instruments in procedure trays. These solutions or platforms can be used to share the surgery case and procedure-specific information and can also be associated with vendor tray requirements so that the hospital and manufacturer can receive a schedule of the surgical procedure such as set images, instruction for use (IFU) documentation, and expected delivery time of the equipment. Thus, using cloud-based platforms and data analytics to maintain and streamline the data collected when procedure trays are in use creates opportunities for the market players.  

COVID-19 Impact:

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the procedure trays market was experiencing steady growth and was influenced by various factors that shaped its dynamics. During the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 28 million surgical procedures were canceled or postponed globally because of active COVID-19 infections within the first 12 weeks of the pandemic. According to global study published in the Lancet, patients undergoing surgery after contracting COVID-19 were at a higher risk of death following surgery.

According to a study published in February 2022 by the National Library of Medicine, surgical services were temporarily shut down during the initial surge of COVID-19, but the healthcare system continued to provide safe care for thoracic surgery patients, especially those with oncologic conditions.
