Nowadays, robot-assisted surgeries are mainly applicable for laparoscopic surgeries as it is more effective and minimally invasive in nature. Therefore, there is an increasing adoption of surgical robots in emerging countries. Additionally, rising healthcare expenditure in developing region and increasing number of surgical procedures are expected to drive market growth over the forthcoming years.

A global medical emergency was generated by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The unexpected advent of such a pandemic had a moderate impact across the surgical robots market. For instance, since the outbreak and lockdown, all the surgical procedures had been postponed impacting the business revenues of healthcare providers and suppliers of medical products and instruments.

Surgical robots are significantly used for minimally invasive surgical procedures. Robotic-assisted systems have better accuracy and precision as compared to unaided surgeons. Therefore, with adaptive and advanced surgical robots, many complex surgical procedures have been successful.

Rising number of surgical procedures across the globe is expected to accelerate the market statistics

Rise in the number of surgical procedures is due to increasing chronic diseases throughout the world. These procedures mainly include cardiac surgery, cataract surgery, orthopedic surgeries, and surgical interventions. For instance, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Eye Institute, cataract cases are projected to reach approximately 38 million cases by 2030 in the U.S.

Moreover, every year, approximately 3 million individuals undergo cataract surgeries, therefore higher number of surgical procedures will elevate the industry growth. Moreover, surgical robots have been used in various procedures for nearly thirty-five years now but the last two decades have seen momentous evolution in the field. Hence, these aspects will boost the demand for surgical robots proving beneficial for the overall market progression.

Surgical robots are mainly applicable to improve different surgical fields to treat orthopedic conditions in an effective manner. According to the OECD, in 2018, the total knee replacement (TKR) surgeries in UK increased to 98,651. Thus, with improved surgical procedures, all complex procedures can be cured easily. Hence, with the use of robotic surgery there has been reduction in post-surgical complications as well as recovery time leading to a positive impact to the market expansion.

The growing demand of accessories and instruments will augment the market progress
