Global Medical Robots Market: Snapshot

Computer-assisted surgery or robotically assisted surgery or robotic surgery are the terms that are being used for the technological development that employs a robotic systems to assist in various surgical procedures. Robot assisted surgeries came into place to augment the capabilities of surgeons performing open surgeries on a patient or to deal with the limitations of already existing procedures of minimally-invasive surgeries.

In minimally-invasive surgeries, surgeons make use of one or two methods to direct the instruments, instead of directly moving the instruments himself. He either makes use of a computer or a telemanipulator to control and move the instruments that are being used there. A telemanipulator is being defined as a distant manipulator that enables the surgeon to accomplish normal movements that pertaining to the surgery. On the other hand, a robotic arm is used to perform those movements making use of manipulators and end-effectors to execute surgery on the patient. In computer control systems, the surgeon makes use of a computer to regulate the end-effectors and the robotic arms that are being used for the surgery. One advantage of such surgeries are that the surgeon could be present at any location of the world, he does not necessarily need to be present there at the operation theatre (OT) to perform the operation thereby resulting in possibility of remote surgery

However, all is not rosy with the deployment of robots in the medical industry. Robotic surgeries are quite often criticized for being too expensive. They also require very high-end technical know-how to assist in surgeries.

Global Medical Robots Market: Overview 

Medical robots comprise the use of robotics in various disciplines of medical science to execute a variety of functions performed by clinicians and healthcare workers. Requiring limited human oversights, they can be configured to support, extend, and automate various healthcare services, especially those involving monotonous tasks. The rising application of robotic and autonomous systems in the healthcare industry has transformed the quality of medical treatment making their use increasingly popular worldwide. 

The spiraling demand for medical robots in areas of disease diagnosis, treatment, and prevention is propelled by the marked dexterity with which they perform various tasks. The successful use of robotic technology for a range of complex tasks such as targeted drug deliveries, precision surgeries, decontamination of healthcare spaces, and detection of biological targets has paved the way for commercial applications of medical robots. 

Global Medical Robots Market: Trends 

The enormous benefits of robot-assisted training in rehabilitation therapy, soaring governmental funding for robotics in developed regions, and constant technological advances in the medical industry are the factors propelling the growth of the medical robots market. The rising application of robots in hospitals worldwide to carry out various tasks that call for extreme precision and unmatched promptness has spurred the demand for medical robots. 

Over the past few decades, medical robots have gained traction among surgeons for performing complex and non-invasive surgeries in different medical specialties, particularly urology and neurosurgery. However, a host of emerging legal and ethical concerns related to robotic surgeries, coupled with the high cost of robotic systems, is likely to restrain the market. Nevertheless, concerned stakeholders, including leading regulatory agencies, are actively taking initiatives to address various patient safety concerns. The substantial benefits of boosting surgical outcomes have kept a large number of surgeons ebullient of the promising avenues emanating in the market.

Global Medical Robots Market: Market Potential 

Curexo Inc., a Korea-based manufacturer of medical devices and an importer of surgical robots, has recently acquired medical robots division of Hyundai Heavy Industries for a sum of 11.1 billion won (approximately $9.9 million). With this, Curexo intends to lead the regional medical robots market by expanding its product portfolio by including robots for the purpose of rehabilitation, patient care, and other healthcare operations. The leading shipbuilding company will become the second largest shareholder of Curexo with a significant stake of 6.7%. Previously, the shipbuilder has developed medical robots for a variety of tasks such as patient-handling, endovascular therapies robots, and orthopedic surgeries. 

In an another encouraging market development that will spur the investment to the development of medical robots, Myomo Inc., a orthotics and prosthetics service company based in Massachusetts, has recently announced a crowdfunding campaign through an online brokerage which will enable it to sell shares in an initial public offering (IPO). The start-up, founded in 2004, actively markets braces and other similar medical devices for people suffering from neurological disorders and upper-limb paralysis. The issuance of IPO will allow a large number of individual investors—ordinary and institutional investors—participate in IPOs. As a result, the medical device manufacturer hopes to raise a whopping sum of $15 million before it begins trading on NYSE by the end of April, 2017. 

Medical Robots Market: Regional Outlook 

North America is a prominent market for medical robots. Europe and Asia Pacific markets contribute significant shares in the global medical robots market. Asia Pacific is anticipated to register an impressive CAGR along the forecast period. The spiraling demand for medical robots is driven by staggering rise in the number of regulatory approvals of robots to be used in various medical areas in Japan. In addition, the increasing prevalence of various cancer types in China, and growing popularity of robotic-assisted procedures in hospitals in India are expected to fuel the market. Furthermore, the increasing collaborations between various stakeholders in emerging nations of Asia has propelled the regional market.
