Surgical loupes are devices that aid in improving the visualization of tiny anatomical structures during dental procedures or surgical procedures such as neurosurgery, ENT, spine surgery, and P&R surgery. Surgical loupes facilitate several complex and specialized surgeries, particularly in the field of plastic surgery, vascular surgery, transplantation surgery, oncology, and urology, among others. Surgical dental loupes integrated with cameras are able to deliver more efficient treatments by enhancing practice efficiency, a factor contributing immensely to the growth of the market. Market growth is also driven by the factor of increasing prominence of customized loupes. Dental surgeons currently demand customized loupes, made exactly to their specifications. Another important growth promoting factor for the market is the growing incidence of different dental diseases including periodontal diseases and dental caries among others.
Demand for light weight loupes is also high as these reduce complications such as headache and strain on the eyes. Light weight loupes allow surgeons to maintain a straight posture. Growth in the upcoming years will be bolstered by an aging population, greater access to dental care, rising awareness about oral care and improving aesthetic standards. Anticipated resumption of dental tourism is another major factor likely to positively impact the uptake of dental surgical loupes and cameras in the short- to mid-term.
