Published Date : Nov 2020 | No. of Pages : 200 Pages | Category : Healthcare

According to Vision Research Reports, the global surgical robots market size was valued at US$ 4.5 Bn in 2020 and to reach US$ 13.4 billion by 2028 with a CAGR of 13.4% from 2021 to 2028.

Rise in the per-capita healthcare expenditure, increase in baby boomer and disabled populations, development in healthcare infrastructure in emerging markets, surge in rehabilitation success rate, and reduction in overall cost of healthcare services are anticipated to drive the global surgical robots market.

Rise in the disposable income of people in emerging economies is expected to enable them to avail better healthcare facilities. Hence, availability of better medical robots are likely to prompt healthcare service providers to make significant investments in advanced medical automation technologies in order to meet patient needs, improve operational efficiency, and save both service costs and time.

Rapid increase in adoption of medical robotic systems can be attributed to a blend of technological improvements, such as usage of more efficient motors, compact & light materials, power back-up, and sophisticated controls & safety mechanisms.

High Cost of Medical Robots and Lack of Skilled Personnel to Hamper Global Market

  • The surgical robots market is technology driven. Introduction of new technologies in the market increases demand for these systems due to improved efficiency and outcomes. However, high pricing of these new devices raises the affordability issue, which limits market growth, especially in the developing regions. Moreover, lack of reimbursement affects demand for robotic systems.
  • Robotic surgery has been adopted by patients and doctors in the last decade. However, standardization in training for instrument handling and accreditation guidelines to ensure surgeon competence and patience safety is still lacking. Hence, during clinical practice, failure of robotic procedures have been observed, which results from surgeon’s inability.
  • There has been widespread implementation of robotic systems for minimal invasive surgery. However, a non-negligible number of complications and technical difficulties have still been observed.

Improvements in 3D Visualization Technology Boosts Uptake of Robotic Systems

Successful outcomes associated with robotic-assisted surgeries are increasingly replacing conventional surgical procedures. Manufacturers in the surgical robots market are making improvements in 3D visualization to enhance quality of life in patients. Ongoing innovations cater to solutions that integrate the medical device technology with robotic systems to reduce trauma and offer rapid post-surgery healing.

Robotic-assisted surgeries are being increasingly adopted in the U.S. healthcare industry landscape, since the FDA has approved surgical robots for general laparoscopic surgeries. As minimally invasive surgeries are growing popular in globally, manufacturers in the surgical robots market are increasing research to augment high-resolution imaging and superior operative ergonomics in robotic systems.

Since several hospitals, especially in developing economies are restricted with limited budget spending, manufacturers are introducing low-cost surgical robots that eliminate the need for constant maintenance servicing.

Companies Overcome Limitations of Haptic Feedback Using Cutting-edge Sensor Technology

Minimally invasive surgery is a modern technique that helps in executing complex surgical procedures with utmost precision. However, ambiguity associated with the haptic feedback of surgical robots acts as a barrier for its adoption by robot-assisted surgeons.

The surgical robots market is highly consolidated with only two major players accounting to ~90% of the total market share. This is another major challenge faced by emerging players who lack the budget, resources, and expertise to overcome the limitations of the haptic feedback associated with surgical robots.

In order to overcome these issues, companies in the surgical robots market are join forces with haptic sensor manufacturers to gain insights on accurate tissue and organ models. For instance, sensing and test-measurement solutions provider Futek manufactures haptic sensors to support surgical robotic platforms. Thus, emerging players are leveraging this opportunity to collaborate with haptic sensor manufacturers to gain competitive edge over leading players. Manufacturers are increasingly investing in R&D to address design challenges associated with haptic autoclavable sensors by collaborating with multidisciplinary engineering teams.

FDA-approved Surgical Robots Gain Prominence in Gynecological Surgeries

The surgical robots market is witnessing change with the introduction of AI in operating rooms. As such, surgical robots are anticipated to gain increased prominence in ambulatory surgical centers in the coming years. Operational accuracy of surgical robots is proving productive in gynecological, general, and orthopedic surgeries. Moreover, the gynecological surgery application segment of the surgical robots market is anticipated to reach a value of ~US$ 4.9 Bn by 2027.

Companies are leveraging opportunities in orthopedic and neurosurgical operations, since these sectors are predicted for exponential growth during the forecast period. This trend is leveraged with AI to gain FDA and CE clearance for novel surgical robots. For instance, in January 2019, Intuitive Surgical - a U.S. leader in robotic products, announced its fourth quarter earnings for the FDA-approved da Vinci surgical systems that are gaining increased acceptance in the U.S. healthcare industry landscape.

Apart from the U.S., manufacturers are meeting the needs of healthcare providers for urological procedures.

Key Segments

In terms of method, the minimally invasive segment is anticipated to account for over 60% share of the market. Technological advancements allow surgeons to perform less invasive surgical procedures and increase in purchasing power of hospitals and other healthcare settings are expected to propel the minimally invasive segment during the forecast period. Demand for robots for minimally invasive surgical procedures is likely to increase during the forecast period. Efficiency of such robots is speeding up the recovery time, shorter hospital stays, increasing the accuracy & safety of surgical procedures, and less intra-operative radiation exposure to patients & healthcare providers.

Easy performance mapping and therapy customization are the major factors projected to drive demand for such robots across the globe. Research & development in the technology, design, efficiency, and safety of spine surgical robots is anticipated to present significant opportunities in the segment in the near future.

Based on application, the gynecological and urological surgery segments accounted for major shares of the surgical robots market in terms of revenue in 2020. The segment is expected to expand at a moderate CAGR during the forecast period. Robotic surgery has developed rapidly, and its use in gynecological conditions as well. Robot-assisted surgery was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1999 for urologic and cardiac procedures and in 2005 for gynecological surgery. In 2018, robot technology was applied widely in gynecological surgeries such as for hysterectomy, sacrocolpopexy, myomectomy, adnexal surgery, and malignancy staging.

In terms of end user, the hospitals segment is likely to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period, due to benefits associated with the use of surgical robots coupled with the resources and capabilities to deploy these platforms. Moreover, rise in investments in the hospital sector, particularly in developing countries, is projected to increase the number of hospitals in countries such as China, India, and Brazil, thereby boosting the need to procure surgical robotic systems.
