The image guided and robot assisted surgery market has been witnessing significant growth. It is likely to continue similarly in the years to come. This is due to increasing demand for minimally invasive surgeries and developments in medicine. These systems help surgeons in decision making and planning.
The ENT (ear, nose and throat) image guided and robot assisted surgery market captured the largest share in applications. Mostly, sinus and cerebrum surgeries are performed by image guided surgery. Additionally, oncology is the largest sub segment under applications. Fluorescene image guided surgery is gaining recognition due to its cost effectiveness over other devices.
Increasing prevalence of cancer patients worldwide and rising demand for minimally or less invasive surgeries are projected to propel the image guided and robot assisted surgery market over the coming years. This market, on basis of types, can be fragmented into MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), computed topography (CT) and ultrasound system.
The image guided and robot assisted surgery market, on the basis of regions, can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and ROW (rest of the world). North America was the largest market in 2013. This was due to increasing disposable income, rising aged population and rising awareness in the region.
Europe is growing at an exponential rate and is likely to reach around USD 1,697 million by 2018. Asia Pacific is the fastest growing image guided and robot assisted surgery market. This comes as a result of increasing healthcare sectors, infrastructure improvements and huge governmental spending in the region.
