Operating tables are medical devices used to support a patient during a surgical procedure. They allow access to all parts of the body and help physicians perform surgical procedures effectively and efficiently. Operating tables are equipped with features such as adjustable height and surfaces, programmable controls, and integrated imaging systems. Various product types available in the market include standard operating tables, specialty operating tables for orthopedic surgeries, and bariatric operating tables that support heavier patients. With the growing volume of surgical procedures performed globally every year, operating tables are being increasingly adopted across hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers.
The global operating table market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1.73 billion in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.0% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
