Constant advances in intraoperative imaging technologies drive the market growth.

Intraoperative imaging technologies, such as iUltrasound, C-arm, and iMRI, have helped in enhancing surgical possibilities. The ability to observe bones and soft tissue with extreme precision has transformed the surgical care for various disorders, including neurology, orthopedics, cardiology, vascular, and neurology. Technologically advanced intraoperative imaging systems offer faster results, higher image quality, easier operations, and simplified consoles as compared to traditional imaging devices. The constant advances in intraoperative imaging technologies, such as 3D technology and real-time imaging, boosts the market expansion. For instance, in March 2021, the FDA granted GE Healthcare clearance for OEC 3D, a surgical imaging system capable of both 3D and 2D imaging. It aims to set a benchmark for intraoperative 3D imaging for spine and orthopedic surgeries. Moreover, the mobile c-arms segment is expected to pace up due to its flexibility to move around the patient, allowing to achieve the best angle for a high-quality image while keeping the patient comfortable. In addition, developments in terms of technology are expected to fuel the segment growth. For instance, in June 2020, Philips highlighted two key advancements on its Zenition mobile C-arm platform: the new tableside user interface, allow clinicians to control the C-arm from within the sterile area, reducing the need for constant communication with the operator, and making the system more straightforward to use.

By application, neurosurgery segment holds the largest share of the market.

Intraoperative imaging is a cutting-edge optical imaging technology utilized in surgical procedures. During surgical procedures, this imaging system has allowed doctors to correctly visualize the anatomy of the patients. A display system and specialized cameras are used in the intraoperative imaging procedure to provide an in-depth image of the surgical area. The system was designed with the intention of treating brain tumors, but its scope of application has expanded since its inception. The growing demand for these solutions in neurosurgery is mainly attributed to the increasing adoption of intraoperative imaging products among medical professionals, owing to growing awareness of intraoperative techniques and its technological advancements. For instance, C-arms with various features, such as high resolution and penetration are essential for monitoring the screws, instruments, implants, and the injected cement positioning. Moreover, 3D imaging with navigation enhances treatment precision and enables the intraoperative evaluation of surgical procedures. The use of C-arms for neurosurgery, especially spinal surgeries, is expected to increase in the coming years on account of technological advancements that have made diagnosing and treating issues easier than before.

The growing North America region is accelerating the market growth.

North America owing to high penetration of intraoperative imaging technologies among key end user, well-established distribution channels for intraoperative imaging product manufacturers, and suppliers, offers growth opportunity for the market. Easy accessibility and the high adoption of advanced technologies due to the significant per capita yearly healthcare expenditure by the US and Canadian governments, as well as supportive government regulations, are driving the markets growth in this region. In addition, the presence of a significant number of market players in the region and their constant efforts in developing new products, investing in acquisitions, and R&D activities to support easy operations and ensure the availability of medical-grade imaging systems will also favor the market growth. For instance, in December 2021, GE Healthcare acquired BK Medical, an innovator in global intraoperative imaging and surgical navigation, used to guide clinicians during minimally invasive and robotic surgeries and to visualize deep tissue during neuro and abdominal surgery procedures and in ultrasound urology.
