Market Overview

Surgical navigation system, also known as computer assisted surgery, is a revolutionized surgical procedure. It utilizes medical devices with navigation system on it to track the patient’s body at the diseased position, and provides a 3D image that assists surgeons to perform high-precision minimal invasive surgeries. This innovative and technologically advanced procedure has led the growth of global surgical navigation system market. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), the global volume of surgeries in  2012 ranged around 266.2–359.5 million and is expected to increase over the years. With the rise in surgical rate and advancement in technology, the demand of surgical navigation system is growing and is expected to witness a gradual increase during the forecast period (2017-2023).

The global surgical navigation system market is segmented on the basis of application, technology and end user. On the basis of application, the market is segmented into neuro navigation system, ENT navigation system, ortho navigation system, spinal navigation system, dental navigation system and cardiac navigation system. Among the varied application segments, ENT navigation system has been observed to be the largest contributor and is expected to remain so during the forecast period, due to the increasing prevalence of ENT related disorders and associated surgical procedures. Based on technology, the global surgical navigation system market is segmented into optical navigation system, electromagnetic navigation system, hybrid navigation system, fluoroscopy based navigation system, CT based navigation system and other navigation systems. Optical navigation system is anticipated to be the fastest growing technology in the global market due to its preference over electromagnetic navigation system. Optical navigation system is precise, and its reduced exposure to radiation is expected to drive it to have highest growth during the forecast period.

Globally, the demand for surgical navigation system was the largest in hospitals due to the increasing number of surgical procedures and government initiatives to provide the hospitals with the latest technology. Other key end users in the global surgical navigation system market are physician practices and ambulatory settings.

Market Dynamics

Growth Drivers

The global surgical navigation system market is a technology driven market and with the advancements in the field of navigation system and medical devices, the global market is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period. The other major driving force behind this growth are the increase in prevalence of chronic diseases such as neurological disorders, orthopedic disorders; the initiatives by government organization to provide support to research and development (R&D) and regulatory approvals. Further, the rise in ENT related disorders such as, chronic sinusitis that demand surgical interventions will drive the growth of the market.


The surgical navigation systems available are expensive and requires high precision. There is a growing demand of technologically advanced products at reasonable cost to cut down the growing healthcare expenses and aid larger population. Moreover, the recent product recalls act as a key barrier for the growth of the global surgical navigation system market. For instance, in 2015, the cranial image guided surgery system, product of Brainlab AG was recalled by FDA due to its inaccuracy.

Opportunities and Trends

Asia-Pacific’s growing geriatric population and its awareness with respect to healthcare has led to the region’s involvement in expenditure on healthcare industry, that will provide an opportunity for the key market players to invest in its rising economy. Further, there has been a noticeable acceptance of the surgical navigation system in hospitals as well as in ambulatory systems setting will push the growth of the market further in the forecast period.

Moreover, the latest trend observed in the global surgical navigation system market is that the leading players are collaborating among themselves in order to expand their product portfolio and have a larger share in the market. For instance, in January 2017, Scopis GmbH collaborated with German Accelerator Lifesciences to expand its market in U.S. and Europe.

Insights by Geography

North America held the largest share in the global surgical navigation system market in 2016, followed by Europe. The reasons for North America holding the largest share are the growing geriatric population that relates to the increase in prevalence of chronic diseases, such as neurological disorders, ENT disorders and cardiovascular diseases. Hence, the government initiatives and support in R&D and the ease in accessibility of advanced technology that involves the adaption of minimally invasive surgeries will lead to progress of the global surgical navigation system market. Asia-Pacific surgical navigation system market is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period with the growth centered at Japan, China and India. Asia-Pacific is a growing economy and inclination to healthcare awareness will motivate key players to invest in the market.

Competitive Landscape

The major players focus on collaboration and partnership among themselves and with universities, hospitals and research labs, to launch products and enhance their portfolio to hold a larger share in the global market.

In January 2017, Koninklijke Philips N.V. in collaboration with Karolinska University Hospital (Sweden), announced its first augmented-reality surgical navigation technology for image-guided spine, cranial and trauma surgery.

The other key players in the global surgical navigation system market are Medtronic PLC, Stryker Corporation, Brainlab AG, B. Braun Melsungen AG, OrthAlign, Inc., Scopis GmbH, Fiagon GmbH, Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc., and Siemens AG.
