Medical Robotics Market Analysis

ID: MRFR//0803-CR | 149 Pages | Author: Kinjoll Dey| August 2023

The market is experiencing positive growth due to a surge in various strategic initiatives undertaken by both public and private organizations. These initiatives encompass a range of activities such as product launches, mergers, acquisitions, regulatory approvals, and collaborations. This dynamic landscape is contributing to the market's expansion. One noteworthy example is Smith+Nephew (UK), which, in February 2022, introduced its advanced handheld robotics platform, the CORI Surgical System, in Japan. This next-generation robotic solution integrates 3-D intraoperative imaging with a precision milling tool, enabling surgeons to sculpt bone with enhanced precision while preserving anatomy in ligament sparing procedures. The CORI system digitally enhances surgeons' capabilities, allowing for individualized knee surgeries tailored to the patient's anatomy. This signifies a significant stride in advancing surgical procedures.

In another instance, Toyota Motor Corporation (Japan) launched the Welwalk WW-2000 in November 2019, a robot designed to provide rehabilitation support for individuals with lower limb paralysis resulting from conditions like stroke. The upgraded version, Welwalk WW-2000, improves upon its predecessor by displaying real-time assistance settings and introducing a game function to boost patient motivation during rehabilitation. The incorporation of new features in this model reduces the workload on therapists compared to the previous version, offering more efficient walking training for patients. Further contributing to market dynamics, Medtronic (US) made a strategic move in February 2020 by acquiring Digital Surgery (UK). This acquisition integrated Digital Surgery into Medtronic's surgical robotics business, part of their minimally invasive therapies group. The integration is expected to broaden patients' access to high-quality medical care, showcasing the collaborative nature of industry players.

In January 2021, Freehand (US) announced a strategic partnership with Imperial Medical Solutions (IMS) (UK), a clinician-led healthcare consultancy. This collaboration aims to support the adoption of Freehand's surgical robots by hospitals in India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, and the Caribbean, underscoring the global impact of these technological advancements.Adding to the roster of achievements, Renishaw (UK) declared in May 2022 that its neuromate stereotactic robot, equipped with neuroinspire surgical planning software, received EU Medical Device Regulation (MDR) certification from the British Standards Institution (BSI), its Notified Body. This certification further establishes the credibility and compliance of Renishaw's technology within the regulatory framework. Collectively, these strategic initiatives reflect the diverse and collaborative efforts fueling the positive trajectory of the market.

Medical Robotics Market Trends



  • Growing applications of medical robotics in healthcare fuels market growth


Surgical robotics has emerged as a new growth point and technological incubator in modern surgery. Robot-assisted surgeries were developed to augment the capabilities of surgeons while performing open surgeries on a patient or to address the limits of existing minimally invasive surgery technologies. Minimally invasive surgery with surgical robotics aids in reducing recovery time, accelerating healing, and in avoiding scarring. The increased need for minimally invasive surgical treatments, as well as the use of medical robotics in helping surgical procedures, have significantly improved the efficacy of surgical operations. Therefore, the above-mentioned factors are promoting market growth.


Furthermore, the number of prescriptions filled for American adults and children rose by 85%, from 2.4 billion to 4.5 billion a year, between 1997 and 2016. The rising incidence of medication errors, particularly dispensing errors in hospitals and retail pharmacies, is a burden on pharmacists and driving demand for medical robotics for automating the dispensing process. According to the data published by Enliven Health in July 2020, medication errors harm at least 1.5 million people, and around 7,000-9,000 people die due to medication errors per year in the US.
