Key players in the space are further investing in research and development for catering to the growing demand to ensure the introduction of telepresence robots with innovative medical features.
In 2021, the mobile segment dominated the market for medical telepresence robots and accounted for revenue share of 68.0% and is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period. Features like adjustable height, obstacle avoidance, autonomous navigation, and head motion that provide efficient and smooth delivery of services and virtual monitoring, thereby facilitating effective teleconsultation, drives the market for medical telepresence robots. Growth in the healthcare sector along with rising government initiatives to provide healthcare facilities to remote location further boosts market growth. The stationary segment is expected to showcase a CAGR of 16.7% from 2022 to 2030. The segment is growing gradually and cost parameter is one of the major factor supporting the segmental growth. The cost of stationary robot is comparatively lower than mobile robot which may lead to rise in adoption of stationary telepresence robots.
The camera segment dominated the market for medical telepresence robots and accounted for revenue share of 22.7% in 2021. Components such as display, camera, microphone and speaker are important parts of telepresence robots as these parts helps in the two-way communication virtually. Smooth operations of telepresence robots require fully functional technical components. Components such as camera and display improve remote communication scenarios through features, such as visualization and clarity. These robots are monitored autonomously and consists of motorized stands, which are connected to the monitor. However, with the growing advancement in technology, sensors and control systems are expected to showcase faster CAGR of 21.3%. Growing investment in the R&D of IoT and artificial intelligence is expected to boost market growth in coming future.
The hospitals and assisted living facilities segment held the largest revenue share of 74.6% in 2021. Growing healthcare infrastructure and introduction of advanced telepresence robots in hospital settings that allows facilitating two-way communication from any distance for efficient teleconsultation and monitoring are the major factors propelling market growth. Furthermore, growing government initiatives to provide healthcare services even in remote location further fuels market growth.
The home use segment is expected to expand at the highest CAGR of 19.3% over the forecast period. The growth of this segment is attributed to rising geriatric population and growing penetration of chronic diseases which increases the demand of telepresence robots for regular monitoring. The availability of some affordable telepresence robots is also supporting market growth.
In 2021, North America dominated the medical telepresence robots market and accounted for revenue share of 40.8% in 2021. The growth of this region is attributed to rapid adoption of robotics and artificial intelligence in the healthcare sector and presence of key players in the market. Moreover, growing disposable income, rising geriatric population, and the increasing penetration of chronic illnesses are expected to support the demand for medical telepresence robots.
In Asia Pacific, the market for medical telepresence robots is projected to grow fast over the forecast period owing to the growing initiatives of government toward robotics and AI and the growing adoption of robotics in the healthcare departments. In addition, the rise in the number of market players in the region, majorly in China and Japan, is fueling the growth of the market for medical telepresence robots in the region. In addition, increasing prevalence of chronic diseases further fuels the market growth.
