The global surgical lighting system market was valued at USD 394.1 million in 2017, and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.4 percent from 2018 – 2026. Surgical lighting is an essential component of operating theater (OT). Surgical lighting system helps the medical professionals to focus better on area to be operated as well as increase the efficiency of the operation to obtain better outcomes. Manufacturers are engaged in developing the surgical lights in order to meet the requirements of surgeons, which includes features such as brightness, color rendering index (CRI), homogeneity, correlated color temperature (CCT), and shadow dilution. Increasing number of hybrid operating rooms to perform minimally invasive procedures is expected to rise the demand for surgical lighting systems. For instance, in July 2018, Covenant HealthCare launched new hybrid operating suite and home of the ARTIS pheno, a robotic C-arm angiography system, used for minimally invasive interventional procedures. Moreover, in October 2018, Maxima Medical Center at Veldhoven, Netherlands, launched a hybrid operating room to perform vascular surgery as well as angioplasty and stent treatments.
Hybrid operating room consists of all the surgical equipment, instruments, surgical lights and tables, operating room lights, equipment management systems, and surgical booms to perform combined image-guided procedures with minimally invasive procedures. Surgical lighting systems play an important role during minimally invasive surgery to model and visualize the 3-D operation sites. Manufacturers are engaged in developing new product with advanced technology to strengthen its product portfolio and serve rising demand for novel and innovative lighting systems. For instance, in October 2018, Getinge AB, launched Maquet PowerLED II Surgical Light. Maquet PowerLED II Surgical Light is upgraded version of Getinge’s Maquet PowerLED technology that include laser guidance for precise positioning and an adjustable light patch to direct light on desired site. The new device aims to provide better surgical outcomes in operating room with features such as automated controls, self-guided intensity adjustment, and dynamic presence sensors for unrivalled shadow management.
Moreover, in January 2019, Enova Illumination collaborated with Operation Smile, a nonprofit medical service organization in Virginia, to donate its XLT-125A surgical headlights to Operation Smile, by providing a discount on the product. This initiative will help to raise awareness about the need for safe, well-timed, effective surgery for cleft lip and cleft palate patients around the world. – Coherent Market Insights
