China Market Report for Surgery Tables 2016 – MedCore
The market for surgical tables in China is a fairly mature market with most new sales going towards the
replacement of older tables. Due to the large existing installed base, there are a significant number of used
and refurbished models being sold along with new models. Although a number of tables were sold to
newly constructed operating rooms (ORs), that number is modest and does not constitute a significant
share of the market. However, opportunity for growth exists in the hybrid OR market for image guided
surgery tables. Additionally, demand from newly integrated facilities is expected to further drive growth
in the number of units sold in the future.

Among general surgery tables, there are relatively few criteria to differentiate between various
manufacturers products and, as a result, the competition is based on price and marketing. A marketing
tactic used by the major surgical table manufacturers is to increase the weight capacity of their tables. As a
result of this process, the average weight capacity of new general surgery tables has increased from
200 pounds in the 1970s to accommodate at least 650 pounds in 2015. Some surgical table models have
weight capacities of over 1,200 pounds due to the increased demand for bariatric procedures. The standard
width of a general surgery table is 20 inches; however, in recent years, general surgery tables have become
wider to accommodate larger patients. To accommodate the spike in bariatric procedures, many general
surgical tables are equipped with width extenders that add 4 inches to either side of the table. Dedicated
bariatric surgical tables come standard with greater width and weight capacity. Although the weight
capacity of general surgery tables should be more than sufficient for most patients, it is still promoted as a
key feature of a surgical table. Weight capacity is one of the major considerations of surgical table
purchasers due to risk management concerns.

China Market Report for Surgical Camera Systems 2016 – MedCore
The introduction of high definition (HD) technology has brought considerable change to the surgical
camera system market. Many facilities have replaced their standard definition (SD) camera systems with
HD capable camera systems. HD cameras are capable of capturing images and videos at a higher
resolution than their SD predecessors, allowing for clearer and more accurate images and videos. This is
very beneficial for minimally invasive surgeries (MIS) in which the surgical camera system is the only
medium between the surgeon and the area being operated on. The extensive SD installed base is still a
significant driving force in the Chinese market.
Japanese Market for Video, High-Tech and Integrated OR Equipment 2009 – MedSuite
Video and high-tech equipment is a broad term used to refer to video systems, digital image capture devices, integration hubs/routers, surgical robotic systems and other capital equipment used in the medical industry. In this report, we have included the markets for all major types of equipment found in operating rooms (ORs). Integrated OR is a reference to an operating room that has been ergonomically designed to include video, lighting, recording and information sharing equipment integrated via a central hub/router. Equipment such as surgical lighting, surgical displays, surgical booms, surgical tables, and insufflators are regularly found inside ORs and are often part of the cost of a new, fully integrated OR setup. In addition, video camera systems and related equipment such as light sources, surgical headlights, image capture devices, and medical printers are an integral part of a modern OR.
European Market for Surgical Video and Imaging Technology 2016 – MedCore
The introduction of high definition (HD) technology has brought considerable change to the surgical camera system market. The popularity of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is continually growing as the utilization of MIS has resulted in reduced patient stays and costs, which have been accompanied by improvements in operating theater efficiency. Surgical displays are utilized in essentially all operating theaters (OTs) in Europe. Surgical light sources provide illumination for endoscopic cameras, surgical headlights and surgical microscopes.
China Market Report for Surgical Displays 2016 – MedCore
The increased use of surgical booms has allowed for more monitors to be brought into the OR
environment. Previously, bringing more monitors into the OR meant more carts and cables to
accommodate them. This brought congestion to the OR and increased the risk of injury to the operating
team. Surgical booms avoid this by placing the displays above the operating area and reducing their
footprint in the OR. For certain disciplines, such as interventional radiology, there has been an increase in
large displays, in the range of 56 to 60, being boom mounted.
