Technological development and adoption of advanced surgeries by the emerging countries are likely to drive the market. The robotic and computer-assisted sector has been in its infancy and is steadily gaining traction.

U.S. general surgery devices market

Presently, robotics has application in various general surgeries, such as cholecystectomy, fundoplication, and Heller Myotomy. As technology advances, the adoption of robotic instruments and 3D monitoring is expected to rise to improve precision and patient care. Several key companies are investing in R&D for the development of innovative products.

For instance, In April 2017, Intuitive Surgical, Inc. received CE mark approval in Europe for the latest da Vinci X Surgical System, which enables robot-assisted surgeries at low costs for hospitals and surgeons. According to an article published by Time, Inc., more than 4,100 da Vinci units have been installed worldwide, which include 2,703 in the U.S., 698 units in Europe, 538 units in Asia, and 210 units in several other regions.

Type Insights

The disposable supplies segment held the largest market share in 2018. The segment is forecasted to expand at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2019 to 2026 due to high demand for disposable supplies, such as needles, syringes, and catheters. Furthermore, increasing awareness about diseases transmitted through surgical devices coupled with government regulations ensuring safety in surgical procedures is likely to boost the demand further.

UK disposable surgical supplies market

On the other hand, the medical robotics & computer-assisted devices segment is expected to register the highest CAGR owing to extensive R&D for the development of accurate computer-assisted tools. For instance, TransEnterix, Inc. is focusing on the use of robotics in minimally invasive surgeries with FDA and CE mark-approved surgical robotic systems in its portfolio.

Application Insights

Orthopedic surgery segment accounted for the highest market share in 2018 and will maintain its dominance throughout the forecast years due to rising cases of bone diseases and growing geriatric population across the globe. Product innovations, favorable reimbursement, and improving diagnosis methods and imaging technology in orthopedic surgery are also likely to drive the segment. Wound care is expected to be the second fastest-growing segment over the forecast period. Rising cases of road accidents and resultant injuries and advancements in wound care products are the key factors augmenting the segment growth. Furthermore, increasing number of new centers to improve wound treatment is also expected to drive the segment.

Regional Insights

North America led the global market in 2018 and is expected to maintain its position during the forecast period. Major factors contributing to its growth include favorable reimbursement policies, presence of key companies, and supportive government initiatives that enable easy access to advanced products for general surgery and training sessions for physicians. In 2015, Global Surgery Initiative (GSI) was introduced by the Department of Surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital to help establish international partnerships and enhance medical technology for conducting surgeries efficiently.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest-growing regional market during the forecast period due to rising investments in the region. Moreover, government initiatives to incorporate improvements in reimbursement policies and growing awareness about reconstructive or plastic surgeries are projected to impel the market. Japan, China, India, Australia, and Singapore are the major countries in the regional market.
