Surgical Robots Market: Global Size, Share, Trends, Growth and Forecast, 2022-2032
Surgical Robots Market: Overview and Definition
The surgical robots market refers to the industry involved in the development, production, and distribution of robotic systems and software designed for use in surgical procedures. Surgical robots are computer-controlled devices that can assist surgeons in performing minimally invasive surgeries with greater precision and accuracy.
These robotic systems typically consist of a surgeon console, where the surgeon controls the robotic arms and instruments, a patient-side cart that holds the robotic arms and instruments, and a vision system that provides the surgeon with a high-resolution 3D image of the surgical field. The use of surgical robots can lead to reduced blood loss, smaller incisions, and shorter recovery times for patients, compared to traditional open surgeries.
The market for surgical robots is expected to continue to grow, driven by factors such as an increasing demand for minimally invasive surgeries, technological advancements in robotics and imaging, and a growing number of regulatory approvals for surgical robots. However, the high cost of these systems and concerns about the potential for automation to replace human surgeons in some procedures may limit adoption and growth in certain segments of the market.
The 21st century since its beginning has seen major technological advancements and uplifts along with Artificial Intelligence massively developing and being made to comprehensively aid in many humanistic-centered tasks across various fields. One such field is the medical field, where AI has been on the rise in the form of Surgical Robots. This market that started somewhere around the 1980’s is expected to grow from USD 6.7 billion in 2020 to USD 11.8 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 12.1% during the forecast period. With the use of these robots, the surgeries are done with precision, miniaturization, smaller incisions; decreased blood loss, less pain and quicker healing time.
The growth of surgical robots market is attributed towards the growth of some relevant factors such as technological advancements, advantages of robotic-assisted surgery, increasing adoption of surgical robots by hospitals & ambulatory surgery centers & increased funding for medical robot research.
Predominantly, the challenges that exist in the use of these robots for surgery are clearly evident in the form of relatively higher costs per surgery, additional and long training periods, lack of haptics, instrumentation limitations, unidentifiable-injuries, biased advertisements, issues with multi-quadrant surgeries as the current ones only can assist in single quadrant applications.
These barriers look to dominate the restriction on their regular and increasing usage but cannot overshadow the advantages that they have to offer. With robots allowing the surgeons to better perform delicate and complex procedures which give them a high-definition, magnified, 3-D view of the surgical site and also lessen their fatigue, this industry, from the first robot Arthropod which assisted in surgery in the mid 80’s to the widely used da Vinci Surgical System, AESOP and The Zeus Surgical System, has come a long way.
Major advances aided by surgical robots in the past few decades have been remote surgery, minimally invasive surgery, unmanned surgery and a handful more.
Though criticized for its expense, hospitals and surgeons believe that investment in them in the long run is going to be worthy with the challenges set to be resolved with the upcoming efficient and cost-effective technologies and advancements. Though human surgeons still have a role to play everywhere, these machines are specifically designed to reach areas the average surgeon can’t access without making large incisions or leaving prevalent scars.
