Surgical Microscopes Market - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017–2025

A surgical microscope is an electrically or mechanically operated optical microscope designed for use in surgical settings for performing microsurgeries. The combination of lenses provide stereoscopic vision, magnification ranging from 4x–40x, and illuminated image of the surgical area. Surgical microscopes is an applied science equipment design intended to maximize productivity by reducing surgical discomfort. Strain-free procedures, easy sterilization or disinfection to avoid cross infection prove to be helpful in increasing the diagnostic efficacy. The innovative modern surgical microscopes can be placed on a table top, worn by the surgeon on the head or mounted on a stand, which enables the surgeon and patient to gain a better view of the target site. The microscope finds its applications in dentistry, gynecology, ophthalmology urology, neurosurgery, spine surgery, oncology, reconstructive surgeries, etc.

Need for high precision minimally invasive surgeries fuels surgical microscopes market growth

According to World Health Organization (WHO), 321.5 million surgical procedures were performed to address the burden of diseases globally, in 2015. Also, as per WHO statistics, cancer was the root cause of 8.8 million deaths in 2015. The aforementioned number is projected to rise by around 70% by 2035, which, in turn, is expected to augment the demand for surgical microscopes in the global market.  Technological advancements in terms of enhanced visibility, portability, and stability are expected to be the key factors driving market growth.  Some of the mother factors driving market growth include the wide use of fluorescence image-guided surgery (FIGS), rise in number of ophthalmic and dental surgeries, advancements in healthcare facilities, and customized microscopy solutions.
