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.
