Healthcare or medical robots are robotic machines utilized in the healthcare sector. Multiple robotic systems used in the world’s top hospitals today provide immense feasibility in carrying out more complex tasks at a rapid and accurate pace. Today, medical robots are well known for their roles in surgery, specifically the use of robots, computers, and software to accurately manipulate surgical instruments through one or more small incisions for various surgical procedures.  Robot’s concrete focus and attentive robots further strengthen their core functionality and enable them to perform tasks with extreme precision. These robots are backed by AI which allows them to learn while performing tasks. Several advantages offered by surgical robots and rehabilitation robots along with the growing demand for better and faster healthcare services are major factors which are expected to drive growth of the market. Furthermore, technological advancements in healthcare sector are anticipated to fuel the demand for healthcare robotics during the estimated time period.  


The growth of the market is driven by advantages offered by surgical robots and rehabilitation robots along with the growing demand for better and faster healthcare services. The demand for minimally invasive surgeries (MIS) is increasing worldwide, mainly due to the benefits associated with these procedures such as their cost effectiveness. Minimally invasive robotic surgery contributes to these benefits by providing greater precision and repeatability, as well as better control and efficiency. Robotic surgery also offers advanced visualization capabilities that provide surgeons with an excellent view of the surgical field, using HD cameras to visualize structures down to the microscopic level. These systems offer greater dexterity than the human hand; Due to their 360-degree rotation capability, robots can allow surgeons to reach even hard-to-reach areas. The most significant benefit of using robotic technology in rehabilitation is the ability to perform high dose, high intensity training. This property makes robotic therapy a promising new technology for the rehabilitation of patients with motor disorders caused by stroke or spinal cord diseases. Research in the field of rehabilitation robotics has grown rapidly, and the number of therapeutic rehabilitation robots has increased significantly over the past two decades. These advantages of surgical robots and rehabilitation robots along with the growing demand for better and faster healthcare services are expected to drive the growth of the overall healthcare robotics market in the coming years.


The rise in healthcare expenditure in developing nations is likely to drive the growth of the market. Emerging markets have seen a steady increase in the number of surgeries over the past decade, driven by growing patient numbers and a boom in medical tourism. It is likely to contribute to the market.  In addition to low processing costs, markets in developing countries are characterized by less stringent regulations and data requirements. Regulatory policies in the Asia-Pacific region are also perceived by market players to be more adaptable and business-friendly. It is expected to have a positive impact on the growth of the market. Furthermore, the growing spending on healthcare and surgical procedures, coupled with the business expansion of major players in emerging markets and technological developments in the medical sector, are expected to provide strong growth opportunities for the market during the forecast period.


Robot-assisted surgeries are much more expensive than minimally invasive surgeries. Additionally, a robot's annual maintenance cost is tremendously high, which adds to the already high cost of robotic surgery. It is expected to negatively impact the growth of the market. A high cost associated with healthcare robotics is expected to restrain the growth of the market. 


A high cost associated with healthcare robotics is one of the major challenging factors for the growth of the market. Likewise, stringent regulations and a lack of well-trained medical staff in developing nations for operation of healthcare robotics is expected to be a major growth challenge for the market. Also, the lack of an advanced healthcare system in underdeveloped nations and is expected to pose a key challenge to the growth of the market.
