Report Overview

The global surgical planning software market was valued at USD 102.1 million in 2022 and is estimated to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.5% from 2023 to 2030. Surgical planning software helps surgeons decide the ideal surgical approach by generating digitally accurate data that the surgeon can quickly evaluate before surgery. The technological developments associated with surgical planning software, a rise in cases of orthopedic surgeries, and an increase in the worldwide geriatric population are some of the key factors contributing to the market growth.

U.S. surgical planning software market size, by application, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

The COVID-19 outbreak had a combined impact on the healthcare sector, with certain areas experiencing a negative impact and others experiencing favorable growth. Many nations made the necessary decision to postpone all non-emergency surgical treatment to free up personnel and resources for patients affected by the virus as the healthcare systems globally struggled to cope with the first wave of COVID-19. This led to a reduction in hospital visits, as well as the termination of a significant number of elective surgeries. In 2021, approximately 10 million of the population in the U.K. were waiting for surgical treatments, up from 4 million before the pandemic.

Deployment Insights

The cloud-based software segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 64.6% in 2022 and is expected to continue its dominance with the fastest growth rate of 6.7% over the forecast period. Cloud-based software includes enhanced features, such as access to a wider range of programs, including development tools, on-demand computing cycles, and application storage. Cloud applications can operate wholly or partly offline, which is helpful for platforms with slow internet connections.

Cloud software is more beneficial because it offers complete capability at a reasonable cost as no initial investment is required. Additionally, cloud-based software is usually charged as part of a monthly or yearly subscription plan that includes updates, support, and training. On the other hand, on-premise software is a popular choice as an up-front permanent license fee. On-premise applications are thought to be more dependable and secure, allowing total ownership and control.  Additionally, the company will be responsible for paying for upgrades, maintenance, and training. 

Application Insights

The orthopedic surgery segment dominated the market and held the largest revenue share of 41.5% in 2022. Pre-operative planning is among the most crucial steps for surgery. For elective surgical treatments such as total joint replacements, pre-operative planning can support shorten operative times and patient Length of stay (LOS). There are recent advancements in technology designed to help orthopedic surgeons plan their surgeries more accurately and improve intra-operative accuracy. Furthermore, using orthopedic design software, surgeons can more precisely decide on the ideal size and location for an orthopedic implant to assure that it suits a patient's unique anatomy.

The neurosurgery segment is estimated to witness the fastest CAGR of 7.2% over the forecast period. Neurosurgery has progressed into the finest and most sophisticated surgical field due to technology implementation. Precision and security have become the major factors of neurosurgery that improved patient outcomes in recent years. Advanced imaging techniques show the accurate detailing of brain architecture. The advanced neurosurgery planning software can be useful for routine and complicated surgical procedures, with automated workflows and intuitive user interfaces.

End-use Insights

The hospitals segment held the majority of the market share of around 54% in 2022 and is expected to expand at the fastest growth rate of 6.8% over the forecast period. Efficient surgical planning software can help hospitals and clinics to increase operational efficiency, automate patient communication, and deliver consistent and transparent perioperative care paths for patients. In advanced surgery, it is more common to implement methods that incorporate individual features of the patient. A tailored approach and planning the surgery in advance allow the optimization of procedures in a less invasive way for the patient.

Global surgical planning software market share, by end use, 2021 (%)

Preoperative orthopedic planning using surgical planning software is one of the most crucial steps in treatment. It allows orthopedic surgeons to plan for joint replacement surgery and other orthopedic treatments, reduces the possibility of intraoperative complications, and increases patient communication. These advantages can also provide direct benefits to the hospital, varying from more effective implant stock management to a considerable reduction in difficulties and patient complaints.

Regional Insights

In 2022, North America dominated the market in terms of the revenue share of 42.3% owing to the rapid technological advancements in the medical sector and the highly developed health infrastructure of the region. The allocation of funds for medical research and development has had a major impact on the growth rate of the North American surgical planning software market in the past few years. The market is expected to rise because of the various health initiatives undertaken by various organizations and institutions. Data on funding given to multiple healthcare programs in the U.S. were presented by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC).

Surgical Planning Software Market Trends by Region

In Asia Pacific, the surgical planning software market is anticipated to witness rapid growth over the forecast period with a CAGR of 6.9%. The increasing elderly population and the development of surgical technology in Asian countries are driving the growth of the market in the region. For Instance, in Japan, due to the aging population, the number of spine surgeries performed every year continues to rise. Lumbar spinal canal stenosis, a common spinal disorder, is currently found in around 10.8% of the country’s elderly population.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

The key companies operating in the market are attempting to enhance their product portfolio by upgrading their products and exploring acquisitions and government authorizations to increase their client base and obtain a larger market share. Furthermore, the key players in the market are implementing strategies such as partnerships, mergers and acquisitions, product and service launches, agreements, joint ventures, collaboration, and expansion to strengthen their position in the surgical planning software market.

For instance, In April 2022, GE Healthcare, a medical equipment, and technology provider collaborated with Medtronic, a medical device company. The collaboration was intended to focus on the exceptional demand and need for care at Office-Based Labs (OBLs) and Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASCs). Under this collaboration, customers can access vast product portfolios, financial solutions, and other exceptional services. In July 2021, DePuy Synthes introduced a robotic-assisted solution named VELYS for knee replacement surgical treatment in Australia. VELYS is planned to be used with the company’s ATTUNE Knee System for complete knee arthroplasty.

In September 2022 Brainlab AG, a digital medical technology provider, acquired Dr. Langer Medical GmbH, a company that specializes in the development of intraoperative neuromonitoring solutions and other related medical devices for surgical procedures. The shared objective of Brainlab & Dr. Langer Medical is to connect entrepreneurship and innovation potential while also creating synergies for the "digital surgery" ecosystem.
