LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio’s latest report on the global urology robotic surgery market provides an analysis on the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from 2016-2020. Technavio defines an emerging trend as a factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.
Barath Palada, a lead analyst from Technavio, specializing in research on urology devices, says, “The increased prevalence of urological disorders such as prostate cancer, urinary tract infection, urinary blockages, and kidney cancers have increased the demand for urology surgical robots. The robotic surgery market is gaining precedence over other surgeries such as open surgeries and laparoscopic surgeries due to benefits such as less pain, no requirement of blood transfusion, short hospital stays, and less recovery time.”

The top three emerging trends driving the global urology robotic surgery market according to Technavio healthcare and life sciences research analysts are:
- Increase in R&D activities
- Adoption of micro and nano robots in urology surgical procedures
- Vendor focus on the development of low-cost robotic surgical systems
Increase in R&D activities
The increasing advancements in robotic surgical systems are likely to have a positive impact on market growth. For instance, in January 2016, the US FDA approved a synchronized motion table for the Intuitive Surgical robotic surgical system. This allows surgeons to use gravity to their advantage by moving the table simultaneously with a surgical robot to manipulate the individual body for better surgical access. This table helps surgeons to perform real-time patient positioning for retraction. The process will improve efficiency in the operating room and reduce costs by enhancing surgical access, exposure, and reach. Such initiatives are expected to bring new products to the market thereby generating substantial revenues.
Adoption of micro and nano robots in urology surgical procedures
The market has been witnessing a trend for increased adoption of micro and nano robots in urological surgical procedures. A micro robot is used remotely to move it to desired locations to aid laparoscopic procedures. Nanorobots are robots which are the size of a cell. These robots could be introduced in blood flow for various treatment purposes such as to destroy cancer cells or for tissue repair. Also, the microrobots can be inserted through a single incision rather than the multiple port sites. Micro-robots possess capabilities such as single incision surgery, tissue retraction, and supplementary visualization. “Researchers are focusing on developing such advanced robots owing to their potential benefits in urological surgeries such as prostatectomies. Such new developments are expected to have a positive impact on market growth,” says Barath.
Vendor focus on the development of low-cost robotic surgical systems
The market has been witnessing development in the use of low-cost robotic surgical systems, which is expected to change market dynamics in the future. One of the reasons for low penetration rates in the market is the high cost of robotic surgical systems. Therefore, emerging competitors are currently focusing on developing cost-effective robotic systems and are likely to challenge the dominance of established vendors by providing greater affordability and technological innovation.
Such initiatives will eventually result in the development of low-cost, miniaturized robots. In March 2016, Virtual Incision Corporation announced the successful use of its miniaturized robotically assisted surgical device for colon resection. Due to its much smaller size, the robot is expected to be substantially less expensive than existing robotic alternatives for urology surgery. As there is high demand for low-cost robotic surgical systems, the device is expected to be used in urology procedures as well during the forecast period.
