Surgical Robots Market - Insights

Surgical robots consists of a camera arm and mechanical arms with surgical instruments, which are controlled by surgeons on computer console that offers high definition and magnified 3-D view of the surgical site. Surgical robots aids in performing various complex surgical procedures with more flexibility, precision, and control than conventional surgical procedures.

Surgical robots are primarily preferred in minimally invasive surgery procedures, which are performed through tiny or small incisions. Moreover, the use of surgical robots enables surgeons to perform delicate and complex procedures, which could be difficult or impossible through other methods.

Problems associated with robotic-assisted surgery are similar to that of open surgery, which includes high risk of infection, bleeding, and cardiopulmonary risks of anesthesia. Furthermore, robotic surgery could led to death of the patient, owing to human errors in operating the technology and risks of mechanical failure. This could hamper growth of the surgical robots market.          

The global surgical robots market is estimated to be valued at US$ 3,380.3 million in 2017 and is expected to witness a robust CAGR of 13.4% over the forecast period (2017–2025).

Increasing demand for minimally invasive surgeries is expected to fuel growth of the surgical robots market in the near future.

Advancements in surgical products and technologies has led to shift from conventional surgeries to minimally invasive surgeries. The usage of robotic technology conducting minimally invasive surgeries has brought significant changes in surgical procedures. Surgical robots aid in making smaller incisions, leading to low blood, and quick recovery of patients with shorter hospital stays. In addition to this, surgical robots enhance the accuracy and precision in surgical procedures and are able to easily reach under soft tissues to operate on organs that otherwise require an open surgery. Therefore, these are ideal in minimally invasive surgeries, which is expected to be a factor driving growth of the surgical robotics market.

Increase in the surgical procedures are expected to support the growth of the surgical robots market. In 2015, according to National Centre for Biotechnology Information, in the U.S., around 175,000 umbilical hernia repairs are performed each year. The share of umbilical and paraumbilical hernia repairs among all repairs for abdominal wall hernias increased from 5% to 14% in the U.K. over the last 25 years.

Furthermore, increasing regulatory approvals supports the growth of surgical robots market. For instance, MEDTECH, a company based in France received a Food and Drug Administration clearance in 2016, to introduce its ROSA Spine system for performing minimally invasive procedures on the spine, which supports the growth of surgical robots market in near future.

Advancements in technology in the surgical robotic systems is expected to augment the surgical robots market growth

North America accounts for the largest share in the global surgical robots market, followed by Europe. This is mainly attributed to high presence of robotic surgical system manufacturers in the U.S. For instance, Intuitive Surgical — a U.S.-based company — that manufactures da Vinci surgical system and is one of the leading surgical robots manufacturer.

Advancements in technology in surgical robotic systems have efficiently brought down costs of medical care by eliminating human error, reducing operating time, streamlining operating theatres, and preserving staff for other critical procedures. Surgical robots enable in better flexibility than human hands by using a joystick, which mimics surgeons hand movements with the robotic instruments. Manufacturers are focusing on upgrading their robotic instruments and accessories with features such as ability of high power computing and minute level precision with introduction of flexible and agile robots to perform minimally invasive surgery. This is expected to aid them in gaining a competitive edge in the market.

Some of the major players in the global surgical robots market include Intuitive Surgical, Think Surgical, TranEnterix, Zimmer Biomet, Stryker Corporation, Smith & Nephew, and Medrobotics Corporation.

Increasing demand for minimally invasive surgeries for application in orthopedics, neurosurgery, gynecology, urology, and cardiovascular is a major factor for growth of the market. Advancement in technologies and techniques for treatment of patients through minimal invasive methods is another factor favoring growth of the surgical robots market. Surgical robots aid in reducing pain due to small incision made over the traditional cuts and also reduces the hospital stays.

Different type of surgery carried out by the surgical robots also favors the growth of market. As gynecology, urology, cardiovascular surgery, Neurosurgery and orthopedic surgery demands the surgical robots for precise surgery. Furthermore FDA approval for various surgical robots also supports the growth of surgical robots market. For instance, in 2016, Hansen Medical received FDA clearance for the Magellan Robotic Catheter eKit for cardiovascular surgery.

Furthermore, key players in the market are focusing on acquisition in order to gain a competitive edge in the market. For instance, Stryker acquired Maco in 2013, in order to gain technological edge in the robotic surgery business. Small scale companies are also focusing on mergers and acquisitions to leverage each other’s technological expertise and knowledge. For instance, Auris acquired Hansen Medical for US$ 80 Mn in 2016, where, the former, manufactures robotic microsurgical system for ophthalmic surgery and the latter, specializes in intravascular robotic catheter systems.

Market Dynamics

Advancements in technology and increasing number of surgical applications along with growing inclination towards minimally invasive surgeries is expected to further boost the surgical robots market growth. Major manufacturers are focused on collaborations and mergers and acquisitions in surgical robots market and are actively investing in the research and development of robotic systems. For instance, collaboration of Johnson & Johnson and Google, to form Verb Surgical, Inc. in 2015.

Furthermore, Cambridge Medical Robotics (CMR) — a U.K.-based manufacturer — is researching on more versatile, affordable next generation surgical robots, for improving minimally invasive surgeries. CMR’s first robot has five self-contained robotic arms attached to a slim and modular system. Each arm has an intelligence and sensing systems to function as per surgeons commands and the arms are customizable.
