COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The spread of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) has had an adverse effect on the majority of industries and the global economy. The surgical planning software industry was somewhat impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. As the world's healthcare systems fought to contain the initial wave of COVID-19, several governments took the essential choice to postpone all non-emergency surgical procedures in order to free up people and resources for patients infected by the virus. This resulted in fewer hospital admissions and the cancellation of a sizable number of elective procedures. Despite this, the market quickly rebounded as limitations were loosened and elective procedures that had been put off during the pandemic began again.

Market Growth Factors

Increasing old aged population

WHO estimates that by 2030, 1 in 6 individuals worldwide would be 60 years of age or older. By this point, there will be 1.4 billion people over the age of 60, up from 1 billion in 2020. The number of persons in the globe who are 60 years or older will double by 2050. (2.1 billion). Between 2020 and 2050, the number of people 80 or older is projected to triple, reaching 426 million. Two-thirds of the world's population over 60 will reside in low- and middle-income nations by the year 2050. The elderly are more likely to have serious injuries that may need surgery. As a consequence, there will be an increase in the number of procedures performed due to the growing elderly population throughout the world, necessitating the use of surgical planning software.

Rising healthcare costs

The increasing quantity and magnitude of investments made in the healthcare sector by governments of different nations is one of the primary drivers of the market's growth. Because of their rapid economic growth and rising healthcare expenses, it is projected that more emerging countries would have more access to high-quality healthcare. This is seen as a sign that the market for surgical planning software is growing favourably. Due to the increase in health conditions, these countries now have a greater need than ever for different treatments and equipment. The market is growing as a result of the rising investment in the healthcare industry.

Market Restraining Factors

Lack of professionals

The global health workforce, based on statistics from 194 Member States as of 2020, is anticipated to reach 65 million, representing an increase of 29% since the adoption of the Global Strategy on Human Resources for Health: Workforce 2030 in 2016. By 2030, the WHO predicts a 10 million-person shortage in the health workforce, mostly in low- and lower-middle-income nations. To varied degrees, nations at all socioeconomic levels have challenges with regard to the training, employment, retention, deployment, and efficiency of their workforce. The market for surgical planning software will diminish since there is already a shortage of trained workers, which is expected to persist in the coming years.

Deployment Outlook

Based on deployment, the surgical planning software market is segmented into cloud-based and on-premise versions depending on deployment. The cloud segment generated the most revenue share in the Surgical Planning Software Market in 2021. Software that is hosted in the cloud offers improved benefits like access to a larger selection of apps, including development tools, on-demand processing cycles, and application storage. Applications in the cloud may function entirely or partially offline, which is advantageous for platforms with sluggish internet connections.

Application Outlook

Based on application, the surgical planning software market is divided into orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, dentistry & orthodontics, and others. The orthopedic surgery segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2021. One of the most important pre-operative processes in surgery is planning. Pre-operative planning may help reduce operating hours and hospital stays for elective surgical procedures like total joint replacements (LOS). Recent technological developments aim to assist orthopedic surgeons in planning their operations more precisely and enhancing intra-operative precision.

End-User Outlook

Based on End-use, the surgery planning software market is divided into hospitals and clinics & others. The clinics & others segment showcased the considerable revenue share in 2021. One of the most important aspects in therapy is employing surgical planning software for pre-operative orthopedicplanning. It improves patient communication, lowers the chance of intraoperative difficulties, and enables orthopedic surgeons to prepare for joint replacement surgery and other orthopedic therapies. These benefits may also directly help the hospital, from improved implant supply management to a significant decrease in challenges and patient complaints.
