Insights on market segments

The surgical navigation system market has been categorized into optical, electromagnetic and hybrid navigation systems, based on technology, where optical navigation systems are expected to witness the fastest growth in demand, at CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period. The demand for optical navigation systems is expected to grow continuously, since the surgeons can perform interventions with greater safety and precision, and this method also minimizes radiation exposure to the patient as well as the staff in operation room.

Access Report Summary with Detailed TOC on "Surgical Navigation System Market by Technology (Optical Navigation (Fluoroscopy, CT), Electromagnetic Navigation, Hybrid Navigation), by Application (Neuro (Cranial, Spinal), ENT, Orthopedic, Dental, Cardiac), by End User (Hospitals, Physician Practices & Ambulatory Settings) by Geography (U.S., Canada, Germany, U.K, France, Italy, Spain, Japan, China, India, Brazil, Mexico) – Global Market Size, Share, Development, Growth and Demand Forecast, 2013-2023" at:

Optical navigation systems have been further bifurcated into fluoroscopy and CT based navigation system where fluoroscopy based navigation systems accounted for the larger share, standing at 77.0% in 2016. The category is also expected to register faster growth during the forecast period, mainly due to economical prices and usage of fluoroscopy based navigation system as compared to the CT based system.

Surgical navigation systems are used for several applications such as neuro navigation, orthopedic navigation, ENT navigation, dental navigation, and cardiac navigation system. Globally, neuro navigation systems occupied the largest share in the market in 2016 and is also expected to grow at a faster pace attaining CAGR of 7.7% by 2023. The neuro navigation system provides real-time intraoperative guidance during brain and/or spinal surgery, leading to its growing market demand.

Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing market for surgical navigation system

Asia-Pacific surgical navigation system market is expected to witness fastest growth, mainly due to aging population, rising incidence of burns cases, increasing diabetic patients, and per capita income. Elderly people have a slow healing of wounds as they have reduced regenerative capabilities and weak immune system, which leads to different ailments, thereby boosting the market for surgical navigation systems in the region. According to the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), the number of people aged 65 years and above, constituted approximately 11.4% of population in 2013, and the count is estimated to reach approximately 20% of the population by 2050.

According to the Asian Diabetes Prevention Initiative (ADPI), around 60% of diabetics in the world live in the region. It is also expected that without intervention, both China and India together, will have almost half a billion of population suffering from diabetes, by 2030. Diabetes is one of the major causes for rising cases of cardiac problems, due to which, the surgical navigation system market in the region is likely to witness considerable growth in future.
