Surgical Microscopes Market Size, Share and Price Trendsby Susan Hill Market Research Analyst
The global surgical microscopes market size is expected to reach USD 1.3 billion by 2025, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. It is anticipated to register a CAGR of 11.5% over the forecast period. Prevalence of chronic disorders such as cancer and Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) requires surgery as the prime line of treatment. With the advent of operating microscopes, these surgeries have become easier and less painful; thus, these devices are a preferred choice for the treatment of chronic conditions. This factor is anticipated to bode well for market growth in near future.
The inflow of technologically-advanced products is projected to spur the demand for surgical microscopes as they are accurate and offer better illumination and stability. Technologies such as red reflex illumination stability, wide angle illumination, and augmented microscopy act as emerging technologies. Rising popularity of minimally invasive surgeries due to their patient-friendly nature is an impact rendering driver for this market. Operating microscopes are vital elements of minimally invasive procedures as well as microsurgeries, fueling growth of the surgical microscopes market.
Mergers and acquisitions along with new product launches are some of the key strategic initiatives undertaken by market players to sustain the competition. Upgrading of products, new launches, technological innovation, and strategic collaborations are the key initiatives. For instance, in August 2014, Alcon acquired WaveTec Vision, a developer of an intraoperative guidance system for cataract. This initiative helped Alcon to strengthen product portfolio in the ophthalmic surgical market.
