Market Scope and Definition:

Surgical imaging systems are used in a wide range of surgical specialties, including orthopedic surgery, cardiovascular surgery, neurosurgery, general surgery, and more. They help surgeons visualize critical structures, guide needle or instrument placement, monitor progress during surgery, and enhance precision and safety.

These imaging systems often consist of imaging equipment, such as X-ray machines, MRI scanners, CT scanners, or ultrasound machines, along with associated software and display monitors. They may be integrated with surgical navigation systems and other advanced technologies to provide real-time feedback and assist surgeons in making informed decisions.

The scope of the surgical imaging market encompasses the technologies, products, services, and applications related to surgical imaging systems. It includes a wide range of imaging modalities and associated equipment used in surgical settings to visualize and guide surgical procedures. The surgical imaging market includes various imaging modalities used in surgical settings, such as X-ray imaging, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, and fluoroscopy. Each modality has its specific applications and advantages in visualizing different anatomical structures during surgical procedures. Several key players in the market are adopting strategies such as mergers, acquisition, partnerships, and collaboration for the expansion their product portfolio. For instance,

  • In January 2023, the strategic partnership agreement between Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. and ScImage, Inc. This collaboration highlights the continuous efforts of companies in the surgical imaging market to enhance their offerings and provide comprehensive solutions to the healthcare industry.

Market Drivers:

Growing Demand of Minimally Invasive Procedures Drives the Market Growth

The growing demand for minimally invasive procedures is a significant driver of the surgical imaging market. Minimally invasive procedures, also known as minimally invasive surgeries or keyhole surgeries, offer several advantages over traditional open surgeries, leading to increased patient preference and healthcare provider adoption. Surgical imaging technologies play a crucial role in facilitating and enhancing minimally invasive procedures.

Minimally invasive procedures are associated with a lower risk of complications, such as infections and post-operative complications. The precise visualization provided by surgical imaging technologies allows surgeons to navigate through delicate anatomical structures with greater accuracy and precision, minimizing the risk of inadvertent damage.

Increasing Prevalence of Chronic Diseases is One of the Key Drivers of the Surgical Imaging Market

the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases is a significant driver for the demand of surgical imaging technologies. Chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disorders, cancer, and orthopedic conditions, often require surgical interventions for diagnosis, treatment, and management. Surgical imaging technologies are essential in accurately diagnosing these conditions, planning surgical procedures, and guiding surgeons during the interventions.

For cancer management, surgical imaging technologies like MRI, CT, and ultrasound are used for tumor localization, preoperative planning, and intraoperative guidance. These imaging modalities enable surgeons to precisely target and remove tumors, while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissues.

Market Trends:

the rise in the prevalence of chronic diseases, and growing demand for minimally invasive procedures is a Significant Trend in the Surgical Imaging Market

Breast cancer is indeed a significant health concern, and the numbers highlight the prevalence and impact of the disease. The high incidence of breast cancer underscores the importance of early detection, accurate diagnosis, and effective treatment, where surgical imaging technologies play a crucial role.

In the context of breast cancer, surgical imaging technologies like mammography, ultrasound, and MRI are commonly used for screening, diagnosis, and surgical planning. These imaging modalities help detect abnormalities in breast tissue, determine the extent and stage of the disease, and guide surgeons in planning and performing breast-conserving surgeries or mastectomies.

For instance, as per the 2022 update from Breast, about 13% (about 1 in 8) of U.S. women are likely to develop invasive breast cancer in 2022. As per the same source, in 2022, an estimated 287,850 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 51,400 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.

Market Restraining Factors:

Limited Access in Developing Regions and High Expensive Price is a Restraining Factor in the Surgical Imaging Market

Developing regions often face challenges in establishing and maintaining adequate healthcare infrastructure, including hospitals, clinics, and diagnostic facilities. The lack of sufficient healthcare facilities equipped with surgical imaging technologies restricts access to these advanced diagnostic and surgical tools.

Surgical imaging technologies, such as advanced imaging systems and associated software, can be expensive to acquire and maintain. The high costs associated with these technologies can act as a barrier, particularly for smaller healthcare facilities or those with limited budgets. The initial investment, ongoing maintenance, and training costs can limit the widespread adoption of surgical imaging technologies.

Key Players Strategies in the Market:
  • In 2021, Canon Medical Systems USA announced a collaboration with Subtle Medical, a healthcare technology company focused on improving medical imaging efficiency. The partnership aimed to integrate Subtle Medical's SubtlePET software into Canon Medical's positron emission tomography (PET) imaging systems.
  • In April 2021, Medtronic, a global medical technology company, partnered with Surgical Theater, a virtual reality and surgical navigation technology provider. The collaboration aimed to integrate Surgical Theater's Precision Virtual Reality technology with Medtronic's StealthStation surgical navigation systems. The integration allowed surgeons to visualize patient-specific anatomy in real-time during surgical procedures.
  • In March 2021, GE Healthcare made an announcement regarding the 510(k) clearance of their new 3D Surgical Imaging System. This system aims to provide more precise and efficient care to patients.
