The global surgical shadowless lamps market is driven by the increasing number of neurosurgery, dental surgery, endoscopic surgery, and optical surgery among people all over the world. These devices offer bright and shadow free high intensity light, which is optimal for visualizing small objects and low contrast objects during surgeries and thus, their demand will continue to grow within the coming years. Medical innovations and technological advancements are helping the surgical shadowless lamps market to grow. Medical tourism is increasing in developing nations such as India and China and this is also slated to drive the growth of this market.
As these nations have a high population and unmet medical needs, the demand for surgical shadowless lamps will be high from these regions. Moreover, refurbishment of healthcare centers and upgrading of medical infrastructure will drive the adoption of surgical shadowless lamps and fuel the growth of the market. Growing healthcare infrastructure and favorable reimbursement policies are pushing patients to undergo surgeries without much delay and this is aiding the growth of the market. The reduction of shadow and better luminance is driving the popularity of surgical shadowless lamps amongst healthcare organizations, hospitals, and other healthcare settings. Continuous developments by market players to develop lamps that reduce toxicity and better color renderings are aiding towards the development and progress of the market. Introduction of a portable version of surgical shadowless lamps is another development in this field that is propelling the growth of this market.
Surgical shadowless is a technology used for operating theater lighting systems. These are generally lamps that demand less shadows and better clarity to the healthcare professionals while performing surgeries. Surgical shadowless lamps are generally used by surgeons and dentists while performing neurosurgery, endoscopic surgeries, dental surgeries, optical surgeries and others. Better surgical lighting enables doctors to perform superior and successful surgeries. In addition, surgical shadowless lamps are also used in outpatient and inpatient operating rooms. The surgical shadowless lamps can be classified according to technology into two types:
- By Technology:
- Halogen based surgical shadowless lamps.
- Light emitting diode (LED) based surgical shadowless lamps.
Halogen based surgical shadowless lamps is an old technology which is currently being replaced by LED based surgical shadowless lamps. Halogen lamps cause environmental pollution and produces large amount of heat that leads to additional difficulty for the surgeon while performing the surgical procedures. On the other hand, LED based surgical lamps produce cold light, low temperature, high color rendering and long life term. Thus, owing to the above mentioned advantages LED based surgical lamps are preferred by the healthcare professionals over halogen based surgical shadowless lamps. The surgical shadowless lamps can also be classified based on portability as:
- By Portability
- Fixed ceiling surgical lamps
- Portable surgical lamps
The fixed ceiling surgical lamps are most common among the hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers. Some of the outpatient surgeries are performed using the portable surgical lamps which demands portability. The trend of surgical shadowless lamps is shifting towards more advanced LED lamps due to their affordability, no heat radiation and better color rendering qualities. Thus, all the above mentioned factors support the growth of surgical shadowless lamps market during the forecast period from 2014 to 2020.
In 2013, North America dominated the global surgical shadowless lamps market followed by Europe. The dominance of this region was majorly due to better healthcare infrastructure that propels the demand for surgical shadowless lamps in North America. Increasing number of inpatient and outpatient surgeries in North America also drive the growth of this market segment in the region. In addition, rising preference for LED based surgical shadowless lamps is also one of the prime factors supporting the uptake of these lamps in the region. European region comprises countries such as the U.K., Germany, France, Italy and Spain. Factors such as established healthcare infrastructure and growing healthcare awareness accentuate the growth of surgical shadowless lamps market in the European region. Furthermore, Asia Pacific and Latin America are the most lucrative markets for surgical shadowless lamps market during the forecast period from 2014 to 2020. The growth of this region was majorly due to developing healthcare infrastructure and increasing number of minimally invasive surgeries performed in the region. India, Brazil and China are the most attractive countries in Asia Pacific market for surgical shadowless lamps.
