However, regulatory policies play a crucial role in the development of intraoperative imaging devices, as they are essential for maintaining patient safety, improving the quality of care, and fostering innovation in the medical device sector. However, adhering to these regulations can be costly for manufacturers, potentially affecting the affordability and availability of these devices.    

Intraoperative Imaging Market Dynamics

Market Drivers

Rising Technological developments in modalities for intraoperative imaging

The medical device sector has seen significant changes in intraoperative imaging over the last decade, with the introduction of focused imaging technologies and portable or smartphone-based devices. Advanced intraoperative imaging systems offer faster results, higher image quality, easier operations, and simpler consoles compared to traditional devices. Key market players are increasingly focused on launching innovative, technologically advanced products that are cost-effective and easy to use. One notable advancement is the reduction in noise from these systems, with devices now producing much less sound. These advancements aim to improve system functionality and broaden their applications, driving demand among end users.

Market Restraints

High cost associated with the intraoperative imaging systems and its installation is likely to impede the market growth.

Intraoperative imaging techniques are priced at high prices, requiring substantial investments for installation. This leads to higher procedural costs for patients, which can hinder the adoption of new systems, particularly in emerging countries where many healthcare facilities cannot afford such technology. Facilities that do invest in these costly systems often rely on third-party payers like Medicaid, Medicare, or private health insurance plans to reimburse the costs of screening and therapeutic procedures performed using these systems. However, continuous reductions in reimbursement rates for intraoperative imaging scans, coupled with the rising cost of these systems, pose challenges for medium-sized and small healthcare facilities looking to invest in advanced intraoperative imaging technologies.

Intraoperative Imaging Market Segmental Analysis

By Product Analysis

  • The iMRI segment is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the projected period. The iMRI system offers high-quality imaging, enabling greater surgical precision and providing real-time images without the use of ionizing radiation, thereby reducing the risk of inaccuracies. These capabilities have positioned iMRI as a critical tool in surgeries, particularly in neurological procedures. Intraoperative scans allow neurosurgeons to assess anatomical and pathological structures, minimize errors from brain shifts, and update neuronavigational data. Apart from neurological surgeries, iMRI is also applied in other medical specialties like ophthalmology, surgical oncology, and radiation oncology.
  • The C-arm segment led the industry market with a substantial revenue share in 2023. This is due to its ability to maneuver around the patient, ensuring optimal imaging angles while keeping the patient comfortable. Technological advancements are expected to drive this segment forward. For instance, in September 2023, Philips introduced the Zenition 30 transportable C-arm system for image-guided therapy. This system, part of the Zenition series, is designed to offer personalized control and clear imaging, enhancing clinical procedure efficiency. Built on the reliable Zenition platform known for its user-friendliness and workflow efficiency, the Zenition 30 is priced to meet current economic and business objectives, making it an ideal choice to enhance decision-making speed and accuracy in various medical procedures.

By Application Analysis

  • The neurosurgery segment accounted for the largest market share in 2023 and is likely to retain its position throughout the market forecast period due to the growing prevalence of neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, migraine, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, stroke, Alzheimer's disease, and other forms of dementia. Intraoperative imaging outcomes have a profound impact, enabling neurosurgeons to operate with enhanced precision and accuracy. This reduces the necessity for further procedures and lowers the risk of infections when patients are moved to and from the operating room.
  • The orthopedic surgery segment is expected to grow at the fastest growth rate over the coming years. The primary driver of the segment's growth is the increase in traffic accident cases. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that road traffic accidents have a substantial financial cost, costing most nations approximately 3% of their GDP. It is anticipated that as the number of orthopedic procedures rises, so will the utilization of intraoperative imaging equipment. Though these imaging devices offer real-time guidance during operations, surgical results are enhanced.

By End-User Analysis

  • Based on the end-user analysis, the market has been segmented on the basis of ambulatory surgical centers, specialty clinics, and hospitals. In 2023, the hospital segment held the largest share of revenue and is projected to maintain its leadership throughout the forecast period. This can be linked to hospitals using more cutting-edge intraoperative imaging technologies in an effort to improve patient outcomes.
