Surgical shadowless is a technology used for operating theater lighting systems. These are generally lamps that demand less shadows and better clarity to the healthcare professionals while performing surgeries. Surgical shadowless lamps are generally used by surgeons and dentists while performing neurosurgery, endoscopic surgeries, dental surgeries, optical surgeries and others. Better surgical lighting enables doctors to perform superior and successful surgeries. In addition, surgical shadowless lamps are also used in outpatient and inpatient operating rooms. The surgical shadowless lamps can be classified according to technology into two types:
- Halogen based surgical shadowless lamps.
- Light emitting diode (LED) based surgical shadowless lamps.

Halogen based surgical shadowless lamps is an old technology which is currently being replaced by LED based surgical shadowless lamps. Halogen lamps cause environmental pollution and produces large amount of heat that leads to additional difficulty for the surgeon while performing the surgical procedures. On the other hand, LED based surgical lamps produce cold light, low temperature, high color rendering and long life term. Thus, owing to the above mentioned advantages LED based surgical lamps are preferred by the healthcare professionals over halogen based surgical shadowless lamps. The surgical shadowless lamps can also be classified based on portability as:
- Fixed ceiling surgical lamps
- Portable surgical lamps
The fixed ceiling surgical lamps are most common among the hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers. Some of the outpatient surgeries are performed using the portable surgical lamps which demands portability. The trend of surgical shadowless lamps is shifting towards more advanced LED lamps due to their affordability, no heat radiation and better color rendering qualities. Thus, all the above mentioned factors support the growth of surgical shadowless lamps market during the forecast period from 2014 to 2020.
