One person dies every 37 seconds due to cardiovascular disease and around 647,000 Americans die from heart disease every year.
The surgical lights market by end-users is segmented as Hospital Operating Rooms, Ambulatory Surgical Centers, and Others. Hospital operating rooms are dominating the market of the surgical lights majorly due to the rising investment in building and expanding new hospitals in different regions, exponential growth in the advanced healthcare facilities in the countries including China, UAE, India, and Saudi Arabia. The rapidly developing hospital infrastructure including technologies and medical devices especially during a pandemic is expected to drive the demand for the surgical lights during the forecasted period. The ambulatory surgical center is expected to witness higher growth during the forecasted period as the patients are preferring their surgery in ambulatory surgical centers than in the hospital to avoid costly hospital bills.
Regionally, the global surgical lights market is classified into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and the Asia Pacific. North America held a significant market share owing to the presence of well-established healthcare infrastructure, rapid adoption of the technologically advanced LED lights, and rising investments, both public and private, to expand the healthcare infrastructure is bolstering the market growth in this region. It is expected to continue its dominance during the forecasted period. Furthermore, a rapidly increasing aging population in countries like the U.S. and Canada is also driving the market growth of surgical lights in this region. According to the U.S. Population Reference Bureau Report 2016, the number of Americans aged 65 and above is projected to double from 46 million in 2016 to 98 million by 2060.
The growing prevalence of diseases such as cancer is further contributing to the growth of synthetic surgical gloves demand in the U.S. Moreover, rising cases of cardiovascular diseases and cancer in these countries are also contributing to the market growth to some extent. According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), an estimated 1,735,350 new cases of cancers were to be diagnosed in the U.S., and 609,640 people were estimated to die from the disease. The Asia Pacific region is expected to be the fastest-growing region in the forecast period due to advancing healthcare technology and growing demand for better healthcare facilities in the region. The booming medical tourism industry in South East Asian countries on account of the presence of advanced medical facilities and low-cost treatment is another major driver of the APAC surgical lights market.
The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted every industry including healthcare. The lockdown that followed the pandemic and the change in the priority to the covid-19 patients affected the surgery-associated market for the patients dealing with the severe diseases and the patients going through resultant surgeries. Most of the countries with most cases of the covid-19 transformed their hospital beds to the covid-19 wards. This significantly impacted and reduced the number of dental, gynecological, cardiovascular, and other types of surgeries. However, the government and the healthcare agencies had set downrange to maintain the well-being of all of the healthcare workers and the patients. This negatively impacted the surgery lights market.
