The global operating room lights market is expected to expand at a sluggish pace during the forecast period. Growth in few markets like the U.S. was attributed to the shifting of many facilities from halogen lights to LED lights. LED lights offer various advantages over traditional halogen lights such as higher light intensity, larger adjustable spot, and a wide range of settings and adjustment options. These LED lights do not heat up as compared to halogen lights, and thus help maintain a cool and comfortable operating room environment for surgeons. Some of the leading brands in the operating lights market are Stellar Series from Skytron; ALM and Hanau Med from Getinge Group; and Phililux from Philips.
