The global medical robots market is growing significantly due to increasing demand for minimally invasive surgeries with the help of robots in the industry. Moreover, rising need for errorless surgeries are expected to support the growth of the medical robots market. Massive unexplored market in medical robots industry of developing economies are creating ample opportunities for the medical robots market to grow at a considerable rate in the coming years.
The advanced research and development facilities and new product developments by the companies are supporting to address the demand for cost effective healthcare in the medical robots industry. Surgical robots reduce the pre and post-operative cost and length of stay in hospital. Moreover, development of nanorobots is also expected to support the growth of the medical robots market in the coming years.
On the basis of type of medical robots, the market can be categorized as noninvasive radiosurgery robots, surgical robots, rehabilitation robots, hospital and pharmacy robots and others. By type, the surgical robots lead the medical robots market, as surgical robots reduces the complication rate of surgeries and improves the accuracy of the procedure. Surgical robots are further categorized as orthopedic surgical robots, laparoscopy robotic systems, steerable robotic systems, neurosurgical robotic systems and others. The laparoscopic robotic systems lead the surgical robots market; whereas, the neurosurgical robotic systems segment is expected to grow with the fastest rate, among all the surgical robots category, in the coming years due to increasing demand for minimally invasive surgeries. Rehabilitation robots include assistive robots, prosthetics, exoskeleton radiosurgery robots, orthotics and therapeutic robots. Moreover, the hospital and pharmacy robots include telemedicine robots, I.V. robots, pharmacy robots and others.
Some of the factors driving the growth of medical robots market are rise in geriatric population, increasing prevalence of neurological and orthopedic conditions, rising demand for telemedicine, technological advancement in automation of healthcare industry, and increased demand and usage of robot assisted procedures. The medical robots market can be categorized on the basis of application as neurology, special education, laparoscopy, orthopedics and others. In addition, reduction in medication errors using medical robots, increase in healthcare spending and rise in government funding and grants are also fueling the growth of the global medical robots market. However, high initial investment, and lack of skilled labors are some of the factors restraining the growth of the medical robots market.
Geographically, North America will be leading the global medical robots market in the coming years, due to rise in aging population, growing prominence of rehabilitation robots, and favourable reimbursement policies. Moreover, Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing region in the global medical robots market. The major reasons contributing to the fastest growth in the region are increasing healthcare expenditure, large pool of patients, rise in government support and funding, increasing medical tourism, and improving healthcare infrastructure in the region. Moreover, the medical robots market is also growing due to increasing awareness of patients in the emerging countries, such as India and China, of Asia-Pacific region.
