In 2009, the U.S. market for video, high-tech and integrated operating room (OR) equipment was valued at
$1.49 billion.

As reported by the New York Times, the market is expected to recover from the economic recession by 2011, driven by the shift towards high-definition (HD) cameras and displays, improved OR efficiency and increasing surgical volumes. In addition, the integrated OR and surgical camera segments are expected to see particularly high growth, as a fully integrated OR enables faster turnaround times and fewer errors. Furthermore, surgical cameras are expected to grow at double-digit rates, primarily due to the increasing adoption of HD technology.
