This market research study analyzes the leading vendors in the global operating table market such as Getinge, Hill-Rom, Skytron, STERIS, and Stryker. A comprehensive analysis of this market is also presented by technology (motorized and non-motorized), by end users (mid-sized hospitals, large hospitals, and ambulatory surgical centers), and by geography (Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

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 with tilt and cradle capabilities, making them well suited for surgeries. Moreover, hybrid operating tables have several advanced features including adjustable height, floating table tops, and a non-breakable carbon fiber table top for medical imaging purposes. These hybrid surgical tables are mostly adopted by cardiac, orthopedic, and neurosurgeons as they allow for seamless and precise movement of patients during surgical procedures.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global operating table market has immense potential owing to the increasing number and complexity of surgical procedures being performed worldwide. The vendors are holding their market position by developing higher quality and technologically advanced operating tables, electro-hydraulic and electric operating tables, and by providing end-to-end service. As the global players are increasing their footprint, local vendors are finding it difficult to compete with them, especially in terms of quality, features, and availability of operating tables.

Key vendors in this market are -

  • Getinge
  • Hill-Rom
  • Skytron
  • Stryker

Other prominent vendors in the market are AGA Sanitätsartikel, Akrus, ALVO Medical, BiHealthcare, CI Healthcare, ConVida Healthcare & Systems, Eschmann Equipment, Famed Żywiec, INFIMED, Medifa-hesse, Merivaara, NUOVA BN, OPT SurgiSystems, Oricare, STILLE, and UFSK- OSYS.

Segmentation by technology and analysis of the operating table market

  • Motorized
  • Non-motorized

During 2015, the non-motorized operating tables segment dominated the market and accounted for close to 67% of the market share, in terms of revenue. The segment will grow at a slow rate due to the decreasing demand for manual operating tables from developed countries. However, small hospitals with limited budgets prefer non-motorized operating tables, which will aid in this segment’s growth during the predicted period. 

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the operating table market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

The Americas was the largest revenue contributor in the global operating table market and is expected to reach more than USD 520 million by 2020. As the operating table is an essential operating room equipment, its demand is likely to increase in the region. Moreover, the increasing adoption of specialized operating tables by hospitals and ambulatory service centers is also one of the major factors propelling this market’s growth in the Americas.
