Industry Trends

Technological innovation, as well as new product offerings, put upward pressure on the ASP of surgical microscopes in general. Facilities are enticed to purchase premium models as opposed to base models on the grounds of 3D visualization systems and other accessories, which increase the safety and patient outcome. Multidisciplinary models are also more appealing to facilities on tight budgets. However, the large prevalence of refurbished and used models has put slight downward pressure on prices. Nonetheless, prices for all surgical microscopes in all included segments are expected to increase significantly over the forecast period.

Optical microscopy is an increasingly technical field in which light from an area of interest is passed through lenses to provide a magnified view. Microscopy is both an intricate art and a complex work of science. Surgical microscopes must incorporate a wide variety of requirements to be able to demonstrate extreme precision with high-level optics, as well as an ergonomic design that prevents physician fatigue. Such requirements include exceptional color conformity, razor-sharp image quality, outstanding light transmission and an unprecedented level of detail within the surgical field.

Surgical Microscopes Market Share Insights

Carl Zeiss led both the European and the U.S. market for surgical microscopes. Carl Zeiss, one of the two duopoly companies in the surgical microscope market, has been in the market for 20 years longer than Leica, and thus is considered by many to be the gold standard in neurosurgical microscopes. They have the largest installed base in the industry. The company offers a broad range of surgical microscopes, including the OPMI® Vario/S88 microscope system, which is equipped to aid surgeons in performing neurosurgery, spinal surgery, plastic reconstructive surgery and ENT surgery. This microscope system offers a stereo co-observation tube that allows the surgical assistant to take a position on either side of the surgeon. In addition, face-to-face surgery allows for the surgeon and surgical assistant to switch positions without any loss of comfort or

Carl Zeiss gained share after the introduction of its OPMI® Pentero® microscope for neurosurgery, ENT and spine surgery. The OPMI® Pentero® has a basic platform that can support numerous other applications, such as fluorescence, digital video and integration, into healthcare facility information systems. Carl Zeiss microscopes include the OPMI® Pentero® and the OPMI® Pentero® C (the latest introduction in ceiling mounted visualization technologies has been designed to maximize operating room space and enhance operative workflow and efficiency).
