Surgical Lighting System Market Insights
Surgical lighting system is an integral component during surgeries to provide illumination that assists the surgeons to view surgical site. There are several types of surgical lights available in the market such as ceiling mounted, mobile surgical lights, surgical headlights, and wall mounted surgical lights. Light source plays an important role in surgical lighting systems for proper illuminations. Manufacturers are engaged in developing efficient surgical light sources. For instance, in February 2016, Excelitas Technologies Corp., a global technology provider focused on delivering innovative, customized photonic solutions, launched its new XLMii LED Fiber Optic Light Source for medical applications. The new XLMii Fiber Optic LED Light Source offers high output and high color rendering index (cri) for endoscopy, surgical microscopy, and surgical headlamps.
The global surgical lighting system market size was valued at US$ 394.1 million in 2017, and is expected to witness a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period (2018 – 2026).

Increasing number of product launches is contributing growth of the surgical lighting system market
New product launches with advanced technology by key players is a major driver for growth of the surgical lighting systems market. For instance, in July 2017, Merivaara, provider of wide range of high-quality equipment and solutions, launched new surgical light, Merivaara Q-Flow to improve working environment in operating theatres and reduce risk of infection. Merivaara Q-Flow offers color rendering, particularly in red and skin shades, that helps the surgeons to perform surgeries such as internal or plastic surgery with precision.
Furthermore, in June 2013, Maquet Medical Systems USA, received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for Volista Surgical Lighting System. With Volista product range, the company offers product line that combines lighting, suspension, and multimedia equipment in surgical theater. Volista product range is comprised of VOLISTA Access and VOLISTA StandOP.
Increasing demand for surgical equipment with advanced technology by the multispecialty hospitals is expected to show significant growth for the surgical lighting system market. For instance, in May 2014, as per data published by Modern Healthcare/ECRI Institute Technology Price Index, the average prices paid for surgical lights was raised by 30% due to increased number of hospitals that have purchased highly configured and expensive systems.
Constant evolution in the surgical tables and lights segment, with introduction of new features and designs has led to high cost of these products. This is a major factor restraining growth of the market. For instance, LED surgical lights based on various illumination techniques are estimated to cost from US$ 8,000 to US$ 15,000 in the U.S.
