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.
