The surgical equipment market is evidencing significant changes with technological innovations such as surgical robotics, the introduction of powered surgical tools and a significant focus on minimally invasive procedures. The market is dominated by hand tools and timesaving innovations have been introduced with the adoption of powered tools. This market has been highly sensitive to the economic downturn, which has led to reduced hospital budgets; however, it is rebounding rapidly. The market has significant drivers such as an increase in lifestyle diseases and surgical procedures, increased accessibility to health care facilities, medical tourism and increased health care spending.However, the global market is complex, as its trends vary regionally.

For instance in India, medical equipment is largely an import-dependent market; however, in the case of surgical equipment, domestic manufacturers earn significant revenues through the export of surgical equipment. Product differentiation in this market is extremely limited; hence, pricing and branding remains the unique selling proposition. The market is packed with numerous participants ranging from manufacturers of forceps to power tools and robotics. Quite recently, specialty hospitals have seen appreciable growth in the developing economies focusing on intense treatments on a single therapeutic segment—for example, cardiology or ophthalmology. However, these economies are still facing basic challenges with respect to proper sterilization of surgical equipment. Such diversified complexities across regions, end users and product categories are presenting significant challenges to surgical equipment companies.
