Continued Technological Progress Drives Demand in Market
At the forefront of driving the global market for hybrid operating room is the continuous technological progress in the domain. Leading players are seen pouring money into creating more sophisticated equipment, which in turn is driving demand.
Besides, swift uptake of robotic surgeries in Asian nations of Japan, Korea, China, and Taiwan are also catalyzing growth in the market, along with continued upgrading of operating rooms, particularly in developed regions.
Further serving to boost the market for hybrid operating room is the increasing allocations by the healthcare sector and government support towards research and development of novel equipment.
High Installation Costs Dampen Demand
Dealing a blow to demand for hybrid operating rooms, on the other hand, is the high cost of installation of the equipment. Complexity of the installation process is also proving to be a restraint. However, helping to overcome the obstacle is the rising preference for minimally invasive surgeries among patients, supportive policies, and increasing investments for development of new technologies.
The most prominent trend in this market is the strategic alliances among multinational players and regional and small-scale OEMs.
Hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs) are key end use segments in market.
