The report categorizes the global robotic surgery market into three major product segments. They are:

  • Robotic surgery systems
  • Instruments and accessories
  • Robotic surgery services

Robotic surgery systems

The robotic surgery systems market is growing at a moderate CAGR due to growing concerns regarding safety and the presence of few approved products in the market. Also, budget constraints faced by hospitals, high equipment cost, and economic uncertainties globally have affected the adoption rates of robotic surgical systems. However, the situation has changed since 2014, and countries such as the US have witnessed an increase in new robotic surgery system installations. For instance, Intuitive Surgical reported a YoY growth of 14% for robotic surgical system segment, owing to an increase in shipment units primarily in the US.

“The increasing focus of vendors to expand their robotic surgical systems into emerging economies is likely to change the market dynamics during the forecast period,” says Barath.

Instruments and accessories

Instruments and accessories are used in conjunction with robotic systems during surgeries. Accessories such as sterile drapes, light guides, camera heads, and other items facilitate the use of robotic systems. Instruments include the mechanical arms that are used to perform surgery through tiny incisions. The cost of instruments and accessories amount to USD 650 to USD 3,500 per procedure, and most of them need to be replaced after every procedure. The Robotic surgery instruments and accessories market is growing at a CAGR of close to 14%.

Instruments and accessories segment generates recurring revenue and this is driving market growth. For instance, Intuitive Surgical reports recurring revenue from the sale of EndoWrist and Single-Site instrument and accessory products that are used in performing surgical procedures with the da Vinci Surgical System.

Robotic surgery services

The global robotic surgery services market is growing at a CAGR of more than 15%. To ensure optimal performance, sustained proficiency, and reduced morbidity, robotic surgical systems require annual servicing for better performance. Some of the services provided by Intuitive Surgical include support, installation, repair, and maintenance. The continuous need for better servicing of surgical systems has led to generate the recurring revenue, which has driven the market growth. Also, a high number of installations will lead to an increase in the recurring revenue from the services segment.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s healthcare and life sciences market research analysts in this report are:

  • Auris Surgical Robotics
  • Intuitive Surgical
  • Stryker
  • Titan Medical
