The main driver of growth in the market is the conversion of the HD surgical camera system installed base to 4K-capable camera systems. While 4K camera systems are experiencing very high growth in sales, HD camera system unit sales have not suffered considerably. The declines in unit sales of HD camera systems were mostly due to Arthrex and Olympus shifting into 4K-driven surgical camera businesses. Despite the
increasing adoption of 4K camera systems, HD camera systems remain the standard. As 4K camera sales continue to increase, the ASP of the total surgical camera system market will continue to increase over the
forecast period, due to 4K cameras’ inherently higher cost.

Surgical camera systems consist of two components: the camera head and the camera control unit (CCU). The camera head is attached to the scope, which is inserted into the patient. Some surgical cameras include an optical zoom, which allows for easy adjustment of the image size. Optical zoom is superior to digital zoom, as it does not sacrifice image quality for magnification. Light, which originates from a light source, travels through the scope to the camera head where it hits charge coupled device (CCD) chips that convert the visual images produced by the camera into electrical signals.

Companies Analyzed

Of the many companies in the EU integrated operating room market, Karl Storz is the leading competitor, followed by Olympus and Stryker. Karl Storz was the leading competitor in the integrated OR market and, like Stryker, leverages their position to sell their surgical camera systems. However, Karl Storz does not offer the variety of different products that Stryker does, so its bundling is not as effective in selling surgical cameras.

In this report suite we’ve analyzed several other companies, which include significant market shares from Richard Wolf, Smith & Nephew, Arthrex, and Others.
