Surgical robots are currently used in various types of surgeries related to gynecology, urology, cardiology, general, transplantations, orthopedics, etc. Apart from surgeries, these robots are also used for the removal of fibroids, MRIs for providing organ biopsies, joint replacements, etc. Since the physician can inspect the affected area by controlling the robot via a computer, the need for the presence of the patient and doctor at the same location is avoided, thus cutting down on the travel in case of an emergency.
In light of the increasing number of applications of surgical robots, the time required for performing a surgery is decreasing. Longer times for surgeries lead to stress and fatigue for any surgeon irrespective of his experience. The steadier and smoother experience from these robots is a much-needed feature to avoid this stress and fatigue. The increase in demand for automation in the healthcare sector and the growing need for minimally invasive surgical procedures are driving the growth of the market. Additionally, with the increasing disorders & health issues, the adoption of surgical robotic systems is boosted. The reduced post-surgical complications and reduced costs in the context of the required manpower for patient care may also be seen as the factors driving the market. However, there is always need to evaluate the costs involved in the adoption of the robotic surgery in comparison to the traditional method. There is also a huge necessity for skilled personnel to operate and program the equipment. Thus, training the physicians is a major challenge for this market. High initial costs, risk of system errors, latency issues, and non-availability of changing the course in the case of any complications are the major factors hindering the growth of the market. Due to the various advantages such as a better view of surgery site, better control, decreased blood loss, lesser pain, smaller incisions thus quick healing time, etc., this market is gaining traction in terms of opportunities.
In our study, the global surgical robot market is segmented based on the components offered, the area of surgery, and geography. The components offered in this market include surgical systems, system accessories, and services. Based on the area of surgery, the market is further segmented into gynecology, general, urology, orthopedic, laparoscopy and others. Robotic Neurosurgery is expected to have the highest growth due to the latest advancements in neurosurgery.
The geographical segmentation of the global surgical robot market in our study includes North America, Latina America, Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Middle East & Africa.
