Surgical Robot Market worth over $13.8bn by 2027

  • Published Date: May 24, 2021

Surgical Robot Market size is set to surpass USD 13.8 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Increasing technological advancements in surgical robots and resulting rise in its adoption will stimulate the demand for surgical robots. Moreover, rising number of surgical procedures and improved patient outcome in surgeries performed using surgical robots will further propel the market growth. The COVID-19 pandemic had a mixed impact on the market as the industry players suffered loss of new sales due to lockdowns and travel restrictions. On the other hand, a variety of potential implementations have been proposed to utilize surgical robots in the surgical environment during such pandemics.

Rising technological advancements in surgical robots will accelerate the market expansion

Robotics industry has achieved rapid development in the medical field in the last couple of decades, and the robots are being regularly used in the surgical procedures. This development is spearheaded by some of the developed countries including the U.S., UK, Germany, and Japan where the surgical robotic systems are used to perform minimally invasive surgeries. Recently developed surgical robots are capable of providing high precision incisions during surgical procedures.

In addition, the robotic systems enable the surgeons to have maximum control over the surgeries by providing high-definition 3D images that helps in minimizing the errors. Thus, to avoid any serious consequences, doctors adopt surgical robots to gain best surgical outcomes. The future of robotic systems is exciting as they are now being developed with AI assistance; where the need to preprogram the system will be less and the robots will be able to perform the surgical procedures without the supervision of doctors. Such innovations and improvements are expected pave the way for lucrative growth in the market.
