As the world’s population ages, and with an increasing shortage of physicians and other healthcare personnel, robots will be a growing presence in the healthcare system.  At the same time, healthcare providers are attracted to robots due to their ability to reduce the cost of care, offload menial tasks from human personnel, improve the accuracy of repetitive tasks, and enable enhanced forms of therapy and rehabilitation, among other types of use cases.  Healthcare robots include surgical robots, hospital logistics robots, disinfectant robots, nursing robots, exoskeleton robots used for rehabilitation, robotic prosthetic limbs, and many other potential robot types.  More than 200 companies are already active in various aspects of the healthcare robotics market, creating highly specialized devices for a wide range of applications.

Tractica forecasts that healthcare robot shipments will increase from approximately 3,400 units annually in 2016 to more than 10,500 units per year by 2021, with more than 38,400 cumulative units shipped during that period.  Surgical robots are currently the largest application market and will lead in terms of unit shipments during the forecast period, however Tractica anticipates that they will be eclipsed by exoskeletons and prosthetics by the end of the period.  The market for healthcare robots, including surgical robots, hospital robots, and rehabilitation robots, will grow in revenue from $1.7 billion in 2016 to $2.8 billion by 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.7%.

This Tractica report analyzes and forecasts the global market for healthcare robotics, including surgical, rehabilitation, and hospital robots.  These are further segmented into 11 specific robot application markets including surgical robots, surgical robot training, exoskeletons, smart prostheses and bionics, therapy robots, assistive robots, logistics robots, cleaning robots, telepresence robots, pill robots, and robotic nurses.  Market sizing and forecasts include unit shipments and revenue, segmented by world region, application market, and enabling technologies.  The report includes more than 80 profiles of key players in the healthcare robotics sector.  The forecast period for this report extends from 2016 through 2021.
