Surgical Robots Industry Overview
The global surgical robots market size was valued at USD 3.6 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19.3% from 2022 to 2030. The shortage of physicians and surgeons all over the globe and the increasing adoption of automated instruments used for surgery are the major factors driving the market. The increasing investments by the regional and international players in the introduction of new and technologically advanced surgical robots are also positively impacting the market growth.
Furthermore, the growing prevalence of bone degenerative diseases and the rising number of hip and knee replacement surgeries due to the increasing cases of arthritis and osteoporosis are the major factors anticipated to fuel the market growth. For instance, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality report, over 4,50,000 hip replacement surgeries are performed each year in the U.S. In addition, as per the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) statistics, the total knee replacement rate for osteoarthritis has been increased by about 38% from 2005-2006 to 2017-2018.

In addition, increasing regulatory approvals for the robots used in surgery is one of the prominent factors aiding the market growth. For example, in 2019, Intuitive Surgical Inc’s Ion robotic surgical system received 510(k) FDA clearance. Moreover, the growing adoption of assisted surgeries like hysterectomies, the increasing number of robotic systems for surgical interventions, and constant investments and R&D activities with respect to automated robotic systems by the manufacturers are the key factors supporting the market growth.
Furthermore, several industrial strategic initiatives by top international players are anticipated to accelerate the market growth over the years. For instance, in 2019, Ethicon, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, acquired Auris Health, which is a developer of a robotic technology platform. This acquisition is aimed at supporting the expansion of Ethion’s digital surgery portfolio to combat lung cancer. In addition, Stryker corporation, in 2019, acquired OrthoSpace, Ltd., which has helped in increasing the company’s surgical equipment portfolio. Therefore, such industrial initiatives are expected to propel the adoption of robots and the growth of the market.
The technological advancements in the field of automated medical instruments such as the combination of cameras, high-definition 3D imaging, computing technology, sensors, remote navigation technology systems, robotic controlled catheters, and other accessories utilized for medical surgeries are also increasing the adoption of automated instruments, which is further anticipated to drive the market over the forecast years.
