Surgical lighting is required during an operating procedure to provide sufficient illumination. In invasive open surgery, the lighting systems are particularly important, where the surgeon has a direct line of sight with the cavity. Continuous and bright lighting is required, even if the head or arm temporarily blocks the light. Operational lights are often deployed in pairs to achieve this and are called surgical lighting systems.
Surgical lights eradicate shadows and highlight even the tiniest parts of the operating organ and tissue. This has created a high need for shadowless surgical lights that can provide natural color rendition, shadow control, and deep illumination of the cavity. These surgical lights help surgeons accurately assess and interpret the appearance of tissue and vessels during surgical procedures.
With the increasing need for a specific blend of light and shadow reduction luminance, demand for shadowless surgical lights will increase more in the coming years, fueling the development of this market for surgical lighting systems. Several companies offer products designed explicitly for low-heat and high-efficiency operations to meet the increasing demand for energy-efficient lighting.
There are many types of surgical lights currently on the market, such as ceiling-mounted, portable surgical lights, surgical headlights, and wall-mounted surgical lights. Light source plays an essential function in surgical lighting systems for adequate illuminations. Manufacturers are interested in designing significant light sources for surgery.

Moreover, in July 2018, Hipac Healthcare Ptv. Ltd., MedLED Chrome with 275,000 Lux, launched clearer surgical headlights. With three bezels, MC3, MC6, or MC7 Pro, of varying brightness combined with the 4 MedLED Pillars, it is adjustable to meet the requirements of any surgeon and any operation.
Growing demand from multi-specialty hospitals for surgical equipment with advanced technology shows substantial growth in the market for surgical lighting systems. For example, in May 2014, according to data published by the Modern Healthcare / ECRI Institute Technology Price Index, due to the increased number of hospitals that have bought highly configured and costly systems, the average prices charged for surgical lights increased 30%.
Furthermore, the initiatives are undertaken by the Indian and Chinese governments to benefits provided healthcare, subsidies to organizations for investment in medical facilities, and increasing investments in various healthcare institutions are among the key drivers of market growth. It is also projected that rising hospital interest in upgrading the Operation Rooms (ORs) will drive growth. Additionally, increasing demand for advanced and hybrid ORs and increasing infrastructure investments for better treatment are anticipated to drive growth.
The global surgical lights market is segmented into technology, application, and end-user. Based on technology, the market is segmented into LED lights and Halogen lights.
LED light segment is forecast to witness lucrative growth. LED lights are new generation illuminating devices consisting of a single physical element called a semiconductor that ensures minimal heat emission and lowers power consumption. At the same time, other conventional halogens create a hotter environment that makes patients uncomfortable. Several advantages associated with a next-generation light-emitting diode (LED) will, therefore, stimulate business growth.
There is an increasing demand for energy-efficient surgical lights as it provides significant energy savings. This has led to popularity among end-users of LED surgical lights as it provides high energy efficiency without compromising the quality and quantity of light. LEDs produce light differently and create less heat than halogen lamps, resulting in greater energy efficiencies. LED surgical lights also lend whiter and brighter light than surgical halogen lights.
Based on end-use, the market is segmented into hospital operating rooms, Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASC), etc.
The rising number of hospitals in developing countries and the rising popularity of advanced LED surgical lights are the main factors propelling the market's growth for surgical lights. Attributed to the increasing number of well-equipped hospitals worldwide, the section hospital operations rooms are projected to have the largest market share over the forecast period.
According to data published by the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF) in 2018, the presence of tier-1 hospitals in India was around 40% in 2015 and expected to continue to grow due to public and private funding and favorable government policies such as exemptions from taxes and duties on imported medical systems and drugs and subsidized hospital rates soon. This element possibly would raise the demand for advanced LED surgical lamps.
