As per the American Neurological Association, the burden of neurological disease is over USD 800 billion per year in the U.S. Furthermore, minimally invasive surgical procedures are gradually gaining popularity among healthcare professionals and patients, owing to a decline in the cost required for hospital stays and problems rising after the surgery. The launch of a sensorless, brushless, fully electronically controlled motor will boost the market expansion. Additionally, several industry players have introduced a simplified and modern approach, thereby offering the ability to ream, saw, and drill with the same handpiece.

Increasing prevalence of orthopedic disorders is expected to propel the surgical power tools market value

Growing prevalence of orthopedic disorder will promote the industry growth. The orthopedic conditions are mostly related with aging and are poised to increase with aging population. According to the Geriatric Orthopedic Surgery and Rehabilitation report, patients aged 70 years and above showcased higher number of comorbidities as compared to younger patient groups. The surging need for orthopedic procedures for conditions such as osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, etc. are propelling the demand for surgical power tools. According to the World Health Organization, in 2017, around 18.0% of women and 9.6% of men aged above 60 years had symptomatic osteoarthritis across the globe. Increasing cases of road accidents across the world have boosted the demand for technological innovations in orthopedic surgical procedures, which in turn has influenced the market demand. In addition, the constant positive performance of surgical power tools has increased its application in the global market. These products are easy to assemble, lightweight, and economically viable.

Increase in prevalence of orthopedic disorders including osteoporosis will create growth opportunities for the surgical power tools market over the forecast period. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the U.S., around 19% of women above 50 years of age suffer from osteoporosis of the femur neck or lumbar spine. In the developed nations, severe limb trauma demanding hospitalization is 50% of the time due to falls and around 15%–20% from road traffic accidents. Hence, the growing adoption of orthopedic surgeries to treat these conditions will upsurge the use of surgical power tools. Thus, growing orthopedic disorders attributed to lack of exercise, chronic trauma, and sedentary lifestyle among others would foster the acceptance of surgical power tools and drive the market progression during the forecast timeframe.

Advent of newer technologies associated with surgical power tool systems will spur the industry value
