An operating table is an essential part of any surgical procedure. Currently, various types of surgical tables are available for basic operating requirements as well as specialized procedures. The operating table is one of the essential operation theater equipment that plays an important role in achieving better treatment outcomes. Surgical lamps, also called operating lights or surgical overheads, are medical devices used by surgeons or medical personnel during surgery. They are used to illuminate the area where surgery is to be performed. It is a combination of several lights and accessories, which is collectively called a surgical light system.
The global operating tables and lights market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1,382.0 million in 2021 and expected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.9% during the forecast period (2021-2028).

Global Operating Tables and Lights Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Supply chain and manufacturing activities in India, Italy, Spain, the U.K., and the U.S. have been disrupted due to lockdowns implemented by governments as a measure against the COVID-19 pandemic. Countries such as Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, and others are also facing problems with regards to transportation.
The coronavirus or COVID-19 outbreak that started from Wuhan, China has spread across continents, affecting various industries globally. The supply of key materials has been severely disrupted due to the forced quarantine and lack of labor and raw materials. As the link between regional warehouses is not smooth, the transportation of raw materials between regions cannot be carried out successfully. This shortage of raw materials and components has affected the supply chain of the global operating tables and lights market.
Due to a severe shortage of medical resources at the front line, only patients diagnosed with serious conditions can be hospitalized. Unfortunately, the pathogenic mechanism of the virus has not been identified completely. Therefore, there is no specific drug and treatment except for symptomatic and supportive treatments. Respiratory support devices such as life-support machines, atomizers, oxygen generators, and monitors are primary medical devices for clinical treatment. Thus, from diagnosis to cure, the need for instruments for measuring temperature, nucleic acid diagnostic kits, antiviral medical products, and life-support machines has increased consistently.
Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the global economy, and in turn, the global operating tables and lights market. Quarantines, traveling constraints, and social distancing measures are likely to lead to a steep decline in business and consumer spending.
Global Operating Tables and Lights Market: Restraint
The major factors that hinder the global operating tables and lights market growth include the high cost of the operating tables and operating lights. Specialty surgical tables incur high acquisition as well as maintenance costs for health care settings. Constant evolution in the surgical tables and lights segment, with the introduction of new features and designs, has led to the high cost of these products.
Major players operating in the global operating tables and lights market are Siemens AG, Dragerwerk AG & Co. KGaA, Getinge AB, GE Healthcare, Hill-Rom Holdings, Inc., KARL STORZ GmbH & Co. KG, Mizuho OSI, Koninklijke Philips N.V., STERIS Corporation, Stryker Corporation, Shenzhen Mindray Bio-Medical Electronics Co., Ltd., BenQ Medical Technology, Mediland Enterprise Corporation, Alvo Medical Sp. zo.o., Famed Zywiec Sp. z o.o., Heal Force, OPT Surgisystems S.R.L. (TKB Group), Medifa-hesse GmbH & Co.

An operating table is used to place patients in the best position for a given type of surgery. It consists of a platform resting on a central support. The platform may have several sections, while the support structure enables adjusting the height and inclination of the table. Surgical lights, also known as surgical lighting or operating lights, are mainly used in hospital operating rooms and ambulatory surgery centers. It can also be used in various locations throughout the facility to provide high-quality lighting for procedures. Operating lights provide optical illumination during procedures such as neurosurgery, dental surgery, and optical surgery.
Key market players are focusing on growth strategies such as acquisition, product launch, partnership, and regulatory approvals. This is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in September 2018, Stryker Corporation, a medical technology company, acquired Invuity Inc., a surgical tool company. This acquisition helped Stryker Corporation increase its product portfolio in the operating light segment. Additionally, in November 2017, IMRIS, a global provider of intraoperative imaging solutions, and Hill-Rom Holdings, Inc.’s, an American medical technology provider and a subsidiary of Baxter International., Trumpf Medical was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a new multi-functional operating room table, specifically designed for the IMRIS Surgical Theatre.
