Surgical microscopes are medical devices that give a clear visual display and bright illumination of the surgical field. They offer an adjustable resolution, resulting in better identification of anatomical structures in the surgical field. They are also used for training purposes in medical institutes. Advanced surgical microscopes are equipped with a wide range of imaging modalities, such as optical coherence tomography (OCT), fluorescence imaging, and augmented reality (AR), for image-guided surgery. The increasiprevalence of several chronic diseases along with the rising geriatric population are fueling up the huge growth of the global surgical microscopes market. For instance, in 2020, the prevalence of chronic diseases increased by 59% across the globe.

Global Surgical Microscopes Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Number of Ophthalmic Surgeries – A notable increase in various kinds of ophthalmic surgeries are fueling up the demand of surgical microscopes. In recent years, more people opted for several non-invasive eye surgeries to treat several eye-related issues. A spike in diabetes and high blood glucose level lead towards numerous eye diseases, i.e., vision impairment, cataracts, color blindness, and so on. So these microscopes deliver high contrast and comprehensive imaging of different areas of the human eye. Therefore, minimally non-invasive ophthalmic surgeries are the appropriate solution to treat such eye diseases. As per the data provided by the World Health Organization (WHO), by 2021, at least 2.2 billion people worldwide had a near or distance vision impairment and cataract is a major factor in both vision loss and blindness.

  • Spiking Number of Cardiovascular Diseases – For instance, Cardiovascular diseases are the major cause of death, accounting for 32% of all deaths. 17.9 million people died from cardiovascular diseases in 2019.

  • Rising Trend of Reconstructive Surgeries - Nearly 6.9 million reconstructive surgical procedures were carried out in the United States in 2020.

  • Escalating Occurrence of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) - Chronic kidney disease is a long - term condition affecting nearly 12% of the global population, denoting approximately 855 million people.

  • Worldwide Increase in Healthcare Expenditure – As per the World Bank, in 2019, global healthcare spending expanded by 9.83%.


  • Heavy Custom and Excise Duty Levied by Governments

Microscopes are developed to provide accurate results and are developed in a way that can fulfill a certain task. These microscopes are not manufactured in every nation and that’s why the export and import volume is very high this process becomes a remarkable restraint to the market since heavy excise duties are imposed by the governments.

  • High Price of Surgical Microscopes

  • Lack of Favorable Reimbursement

The global surgical microscopes market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into ophthalmology, oncology, neuro and spine surgery, gynecology and urology, dentistry, ENT surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, and other surgeries. Out of these, the oncology segment is estimated to significantly grow over the forecast period owing to the rapidly growing occurrence of cancer spiking the demand for surgical microscopes globally. Cancer is a leading cause of death and is designated as a chronic disease. For instance, in 2019, approximately 2 million new cancer cases were diagnosed and nearly 610,370 cancer were deaths reported in the United States.

Global Surgical Microscopes Market Regional Synopsis

Regionally, the global surgical microscopes market is studied into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa region. Amongst these markets, the market in North America is projected to hold the largest market share by the end of 2033 backed by the huge investment in research and development, rising prevalence of cardiovascular and cancer diseases, and growing number of surgeries in the region. For instance, from January 1, 2019, to January 30, 2021, approximately 14 125 570 surgical procedures were performed in the United States.
