The healthcare sector in this region varies in different countries. The majority of the healthcare providers in USA belong to the private sector. More than 60% of the hospitals are non-profit and only around 20% are government owned and the rest is for profit. In 2012, USA spent almost 20% of their expenditure on healthcare as an allowance from the total government expenditure.
In Canada, the majority of healthcare sector is publicly funded which is helpful for the citizens to get access to basic and advanced healthcare. This huge healthcare market is increasing and the demand for robotics will increase in the period to come. The USA market has a higher percentage of demand compared to the Canadian market in this region.
Service Robots are the types of robots which are either semi or fully autonomous. They can help humans perform various tasks; however, they exclude operations in manufacturing. The fully autonomous robots can take their own decisions in real time and in unpredictable environments to perform specific tasks. Service robots help in accomplishing for tasks, which are dangerous, dull, dirty or dumb. In 2013, 21,000 units of professional robots were sold globally which recorded as a 4% increase from the previous year. Going into the classification of service robots, we have primarily, two kinds of service robots: Professional robots and Personal robots. The professional robots work for commercial purposes, whereas personal robots ones perform their assigned tasks in the non-commercial sphere.
The main driver of this market is the increased usage in different sectors because of which the market for service robotics is estimated to grow at a fast pace. Contrastingly, one of the main restraints of this market will be the high cost. Companies are taking extra efforts to bring the costs down so that individuals and companies will be able to use service robots more.
