Overview of the operating table market

According to the market research analysts at Technavio, the global operating table market is anticipated to witness steady growth and will post a CAGR of close to 4% during the forecast period. The growing demand for bariatric surgeries is one of the key factors likely to drive this market over the coming years. The worldwide prevalence of obesity has constantly been rising, which has led physicians to adopt minimally invasive techniques to carry out various weight loss surgical procedures. With an increase in R&D of surgical robotics, the application of minimally invasive procedures in bariatric surgeries continues to evolve. Also, many obese patients prefer laparoscopic procedures like liposuction and gastric banding for weight loss. Gastric banding is a simple, inexpensive occlusion technique with lower mortality rates than the laparoscopic gastric bypass procedure. This procedure is fast gaining prominence worldwide, particularly among pediatric patients with obesity, due to its clinically proven acceptable safety and efficacy parameters.

The growing popularity of hybrid operating tables is one of the upcoming trends that is expected to bolster this market’s growth prospects over the next four years. A hybrid surgical table is integrated with free-floating table top

Market outlook of moist wound dressings

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global moist wound dressings market to grow moderately at a CAGR of over 8% during the forecast period. The primary driver supporting the growth of the market is the prevalence of diabetes-associated chronic wounds among all age groups.  Patients suffering from diabetes will often have the characteristics of multisystem disorder and type 2 diabetes caused due to obesity that will affect the wound healing process and have implications for acute and chronic wounds. Therefore, the rise in the occurrence of diabetes and its associated chronic wounds will increase the demand for moist wound dressing therapies, thereby contributing to the market growth.

Additionally, the use of nanotechnology for moist wound dressings is one of the prime trends, which is also leading to the growth of the market. The different nanotechnologies that have demonstrated effective results are hydrogel nanoparticle aggregate technology, nanocrystalline silver technology, nanoparticle paclitaxel, and nanopeutics. The use of nanotechnology in moist wound dressing helps by speeding up the wound healing process, as it can control the release of substances such as proteins and drugs from the dressings.

Product segmentation and analysis of the moist wound dressings market

  • Foam
  • Hydrocolloids
  • Alginates
  • Antimicrobials
  • Transparent films
  • Hydrogels

The foam segment dominated the moist wound dressings market during 2015, with a market share of over 30%. The main advantage of foam dressings is that they absorb high amounts of wound exudates and at the same time ensuring the dressing remains in place for a long time. They are used

Overview of the global osteosynthesis devices market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global osteosynthesis devices market to grow at a CAGR of around 4% during the forecast period. The populace’s growing demand for minimally invasive orthopedic surgeries will bolster the adoption of minimally invasive osteosynthesis devices as they do not interfere with the fracture site and help to improve the natural healing process of the target site. This rise in the preference for minimally invasive osteosynthesis devices will incite growth in the global market for osteosynthesis devices during the predicted period. Moreover, with the increasing incidence of osteoarthritis among the geriatric population, the need for bone-related surgeries will increase as they help to reduce pain in patients. This rise in the preference for bone-related surgeries will foster the adoption of osteosynthesis devices until the end of 2020.

Application-based segmentation and analysis of the osteosynthesis devices market

  • Internal fixation devices
  • External fixation devices

In this market analysis, analysts have estimated the internal fixation devices segment to account for approximately 88% of the total market share during the forecast period. Factors such as the augmented utilization of LCP and the rising preference for minimally invasive devices such as intramedullary nails and hip screws will foster the prospects for market growth until 2020.

Segmentation by geography and analysis of the osteosynthesis devices market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

The global osteosynthesis devices market is dominated by the Americas, which accounted for around 55% of the total market share. In the Americas, the US is the largest revenue

Overview of the hip prosthesis market

Extensive research carried out by the analysts at Technavio has shown that the global hip prosthesis market will witness steady growth and will post a moderate CAGR of more than 2% over the forecast period. With the recent advances in the hip replacement surgical procedures, the market for hip prosthesis has a positive outlook in the coming years. The new developments in surgical procedures have significantly reduced the risks involved with traditional hip replacements. Minimally invasive (MI) surgical procedures require tiny incisions and minimize the duration of hospital stay and blood loss. Therefore, MI surgical procedures is a safe and cost-effective option for individuals undergoing hip prosthesis surgeries, especially those with arthritis arising from injuries related to accidents or sports. Moreover, the new implant materials are less prone to wear and tear and do not cause any inflammatory reactions. These hip prosthesis have a bioabsorbable polymer coating that helps avoid the problem of bone resorption caused by stress shielding. The recent advances in hip surgery and highly cross-linked polyethylene have slowed down the wearing out process, which will drive this market’s growth until the end of 2020.

Many surgeons have started practicing MI surgeries in an outpatient setting especially for bone and spine disorders. Some of the MI hip fracture operations, such as total hip replacement and partial hip replacement procedures can easily be performed in ASCs. This trend is expected to gain traction in the market and soon most complicated open surgeries will undergo a rapid
