Intraoperative imaging refers to an operating room configuration that helps surgeons to image the patient through a scanner while the patient is undergoing surgery, chiefly brain surgery. These image guided surgeries utilize cameras or electromagnetic fields in order to capture and relay the patient’s anatomy as well as the surgeon’s precise movements in conjunction with the patient, to computer monitors present in the operating room. This type of surgery enables surgeons to perform safer and less invasive procedures.
The global intraoperative imaging market can be classified based on product, application, end user, and region. On the basis of product, the global intraoperative imaging market is segmented into mobile c-arms, intraoperative computed tomography, intraoperative MRI, and intraoperative ultrasound. Based upon application, the global market is segmented into neurosurgery, orthopedic & trauma surgery, spine surgery, cardiovascular surgery and other applications. Depending on end user, it is divided into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs), and clinics among others.
The intraoperative imaging market is expected to register high growth during the future period, Factors such as increased prevalence of chronic diseases, such as neurological, cardiac, and orthopedic disorders, is anticipated to fuel market growth. As per Alzheimer’s Association, over 5.4 million people in the U.S. suffered with Alzheimer’s disease in 2016 and it is estimated that the number of patients would reach around 16 million by 2050. Also, as per the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, over 581,000 total knee replacements are performed annually in the U.S. Thus, there is an increased demand for advanced intraoperative imaging for treatment chronic disorders, which is expected to propel the market growth Based on regions, the global intraoperative imaging market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Middle East & Africa (MEA), and Latin America.
The North American region is anticipated to command the maximum market share and would lead the intraoperative imaging market during the forecast period. Owing to the presence of several large medical devices companies in this region, such as Medtronic, Siemens Healthineers, Koninklijke Philips N.V., and GE Healthcare. Moreover, the presence of highly developed healthcare infrastructure as well as the availability of expert surgeons in this region has further propelled the market growth. The North American market was followed by owing to the high demand for innovative medical devices for surgeries and presence of major manufacturers mainly in Germany, UK, France, Switzerland, and Italy integrated with well-developed healthcare infrastructure are expected to drive growth for the market. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to register swiftest growth rate during the forecast period owing to high awareness about advanced surgical treatments and developing healthcare infrastructure in Asian countries such as China, India, and Indonesia. Additionally, the rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, cancer, orthopedic diseases, epilepsy, and Alzheimer’s disease, is analyzed to increase the adoption of intraoperative imaging.
The major companies that provide intraoperative imaging equipment include Deerfield Imaging, GE Healthcare, Ziehm Imaging GmbH, Siemens Healthineers, Medtronic, IMRIS, Koninklijke Philips N.V., Brainlab AG, Shimadzu Corporation, and NeuroLogica Corp. among others.
