The robotic surgery system is a complex system that integrates several modern high-tech methods. It has a wide range of uses and has a large number of clinical applications in surgery. The surgeon can operate by keeping the machine away from the operating table to operate, which is completely different from the traditional surgical concept. Surgical Robots is an advanced robot platform whose design concept is to perform complex surgical operations through the use of minimally invasive methods. The bedside mechanical arm system (Patient Cart) is the operating part of the surgical robot. Its main function is to provide support for the instrument arm and camera arm.
The surgical robot increases the field of vision, reduces hand tremors; the robot’s inner wrist is more flexible than laparoscopy. It can operate around target organs at different angles, smaller than human hands. It can able to work in limited and narrow spaces; enabling surgeons to work in a relaxed working environment, reduce fatigue, and concentrate more; reduce the number of participants in the operation.
Global Surgical Robots Market estimated to grow with a substantial rate during the forecast period, 2020-2027. The technological advancements in surgical robots and the growing adoption of robotic-assisted surgery are projected to drive the global surgical robot market in the upcoming years. Moreover, the rise in the adoption of minimally invasive surgeries among patients has triggered the robust growth of the surgical robot market in future periods. Additionally, the growing need for automation in the healthcare industry and the shifting trends towards advanced robotics surgeries are keys factors anticipated to boost the global surgical robot market in the future period.
Further, the growing incidences of chronic diseases, the increasing geriatric population, and the complexity of surgical procedures will accelerate the global surgical robots market size in the next few years. In addition, easy performance mapping and therapy customization are major factors expected to influence the surgical robot industry across the globe. The favorable regulatory scenario in developed countries like the U.S.A. that promotes development in surgical robots propels industry growth. For example, U.S.A. F.D.A. minutely scrutinizes surgical robot manufacturing activities and frames various rules and regulations to minimize defects in surgical robots and reduce the number of post-sales product recalls. With the rise of more emerging countries and the importance and investment in medical and health services, the global surgical robot volume will continue to maintain an upward trend in the next few years.
The development of robot-assisted surgery has resulted in smaller scars, less pain, and a faster recovery period for patients. At the same time, surgeons using this technology can also perform surgery in a more comfortable position while also having higher visibility and higher accuracy.
In general, performing open surgery requires a blood transfusion, which brings dangers such as infectious diseases, and robotic surgery has little bleeding. For general open surgery, it takes 2 to 3 days for the patient to get discharged, and normal activities can be resumed after six weeks. However, after surgery with a robot, the patient can be released from the hospital in one day, and normal activities can be performed after one week.
The core technology of endoscopic surgical robots includes a 3D high-definition surgical vision system, simulation manipulator, and motion control technology. The 3D high-definition surgical field of vision provides the surgeon with immersive surgical field immersion, clear and detailed anatomical tissue structure images, and visual sense during surgery.
Many companies have received clearance from the F.D.A. for a robotic guidance platform designed for navigating complex cranial surgeries such as brain tissue biopsies, the placement of deep electrodes in patients suffering from seizures, or the positioning of bone anchors for subsequent MRI-guided laser-ablation procedures.
Based on products and services, the global surgical robot market classified into Instruments & Accessories, Robotic Systems, and Service. The instruments & accessories segment dominated the market in 2019 and is also expected to grow at a higher rate owing to the recurrent purchase of instruments & accessories as opposed to robotic systems, which are a one-time investment. It has a low price as compared to the robot systems and high replacement rate.
Robotic Systems are witnessed to grow with a better rate throughout the analysis timeframe due to a high preference for minimally invasive surgery, and it offers surgical procedures for complicated conditions.
Based on application, the global surgical robots market segregated into General Surgery, Urological Surgery, Gynecological Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Neurosurgery, and Others. The general surgery segment commanded the largest share of the market in 2019. It will continue by 2027 attributable to the augmented use of surgical robots in general procedures such as bariatric surgery, Heller myotomy, gastrectomy, hernia repair, cholecystectomy, transoral surgery, and pancreatectomy.
The Neurosurgery segment will be the fastest-growing segment on account of the growing prevalence of neurological dysfunction, stroke, and brain aneurysm across the world.
Based on end-user, the global Surgical Robot market categorized into Hospitals, Ambulatory Surgery Centers, and Others. Hospitals segment will generate maximum revenue by 2027 due to the rise in the prevalence of chronic diseases and trauma cases and the availability of reimbursement for surgical procedures in hospitals.
The ambulatory surgery centers segment will drive due to the reduced length of patient stay in ambulatory surgery centers.
Based on geography, the global Surgical Robots market segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa. North America estimated to occupy the lion’s market share by 2027. It is primarily attributed to financial aids by governments for R&D in surgical robots in these regions and the growing adoption of surgical robots for pediatric surgeries and general surgery procedures in the U.S.
Europe will witness lucrative growth in the estimated period owing to the surge in adoption of robot-assisted surgical procedures in these regions coupled with initiatives of organizations such as the European Association of Urology, including the launch of the EAU Robotic Urology Section (ERUS).
Companies such as Intuitive Surgical, Stryker, Mazor Robotics, Smith & Nephew, Hansen Medical, Medrobotics, TransEnterix, Medtech, Renishaw, THINK Surgical, Globus Medical, Johnson & Johnson, Zimmer Biomet, and Omni are the key players in the Global Surgical Robots Market.
