Market Report Description

The Global Surgical Navigation Systems Market size is expected to reach $1.4 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 6.3% CAGR during the forecast period.

A surgical navigation system is one of the most important components of any computer-assisted surgery procedure. This is a concept that allows surgical procedures to be performed with the help of digital imaging technologies. It enables surgeons to undertake both pre-operative planning and precise surgical instrument navigation throughout the procedure. Endoscopic procedures are now possible due to the computer-assisted method of surgery. The surgeon gathers information quickly in order to determine where incisions and operations should be performed. This method results in a gentler treatment and with less pain for patients, as well as improved precision, a speedier surgical proc, and hence lower costs. The surgical navigation system was created in the mid-1980s. While task groups in neurosurgery and ENT surgery created this technique, which comprises a significant number of applications nowadays. In addition, Surgical navigation systems find applications in oral as well as maxillofacial surgery, visceral radiosurgery, orthopedic surgery, and implant dentistry. By incorporating all of the elements in the operation theatre, surgical navigation systems can be greatly advanced and supported by computers.

The surgical navigation technology enables surgeons to track tool placements precisely and then project them onto pre-operative imaging data. In addition, the GPS tracking feature allows the surgeon to monitor their location on a map. A computer workstation, as well as gear for monitoring the movement of tools, are included in the surgical navigation kit. Despite the fact that optical and electromagnetic tracking are accessible, the majority of sinus surgeons recommend electromagnetic tracking.

The growth of the market is likely to be propelled by the prevalence of target conditions such as brain tumors, osteoarthritis, and ENT problems. As per the World Health Organization, 9.6% of men along with 18% of women have arthritis in one form or another. Osteoarthritis is a disease that primarily affects elderly people. The majority of osteoarthritis patients suffer difficulty in moving and inability in conducting regular tasks.

Moreover, due to an increase in the geriatric population, increased adoption of surgical navigation systems in minimally invasive surgeries, and a high presence of chronic illnesses such as Alzheimer's, strokes, and cerebrovascular diseases, the surgical navigation systems market has seen significant growth in recent years. The demand for surgical navigation technology has grown as it makes it easier to map a patient's organs and provides a better insight of how to perform surgical procedures efficiently. Additionally, the demand for surgical navigation technology has increased due to global technological breakthroughs, complexities in medical operations, and a huge number of deaths caused by traditional methods.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic led the world economy to a steep downfall. Various businesses, irrespective of their sizes were demolished during the pandemic. In addition, governments across the world were forced to impose country-wide lockdowns across their nations, which substantially hampered the worldwide supply chain of various products. Due to the lockdown, the manufacturing units of numerous goods went under a temporary closure. However, the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic was beneficial for the surgical navigation systems market. The infection significantly targeted the lungs of people, due to which, the number of people with various cardiovascular problems substantially increased.

Market driving Factors:

An increasing number of technological developments

Surgical navigation systems scan the patient's brain so that surgeons can better understand it and execute more effective surgeries. As a result, demand for this technology is expected to increase in the future. Technological advancements have benefited various new applications, surgical procedure approaches, increased success rates, inventions, surgical procedure approaches, and other benefits. Additionally, user-friendly processes, improved outcomes, ease of operation, and improved treatment quality, among other aspects, have increased demand for this technology among healthcare professionals and patients. Surgical navigation systems comprise advanced technology, culminating more features, a higher success rate, and creative applications based on the procedures they perform.

Offers disease-based surgery

In the orthopedic industry, there has been a steady need for improved procedures. Patients with disorders affecting the knees and hips, such as osteoarthritis, are usually weight-bearing joints. Such concerns can be addressed with a surgical navigation system. Surgical procedures are fraught with dangers. In addition, various traditional surgeries can result in post-surgical infections as well as higher blood loss, causing the healing and recovery process to take longer. Surgical navigation systems, on the other hand, provide accurate anatomical imaging. This lowers the chance of complications following surgery, enabling quicker recovery.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Poor healthcare infrastructure of LMICs (Low- and middle-income countries)

People across poor nations have lesser access to medical care services than wealthy countries. On the other side, impoverished people in LMICs, or low and middle-income countries, are constantly disadvantaged in all areas of access as well as their determinants. The healthcare industry in developing countries is severely underfunded, and the vast majority of these countries are unable to provide fundamental healthcare to their inhabitants. The issue is most prevalent in developing and developing countries, where government spending on public security is more than the expenditure on the enhancement of the healthcare infrastructure.

Surgical Navigation Systems Market Share and Industry Analysis Report 2020

End User Outlook

Based on End User, the market is segmented into Hospitals and Physician Practices & Ambulatory Settings. In 2020 the Ambulatory Surgical Centers segment witnessed a substantial revenue share of the surgical navigation system market. The increasing adoption of ASCs across developed countries, the scarcity of hospital beds, and the scarcity of economic resources are likely to fuel growth of the segment.
