Over the past decade, significant strides have been made in the development of industrial robotic technology that, while not replacing humans, has been adapted to augment and assist today’s surgeons, therapists and other healthcare workers. These robots, while generally not operating autonomously due to concerns regarding patient safety, allow humans to extend their physical capabilities while leveraging their considerable decision-making and analytical skills.
This study addresses the market for medical robotics for the period of 2010-2016, covering global markets segmented by region (North America, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa). It assesses the outlook for the development of medical robots, segmented by application; each subsegment is further dissected to identify shipment unit and revenue forecasts, ASPs, and component unit shipment and revenue trends and prices. The study also examines activities and developments from both application and industry perspectives to provide a clearer picture of the actual penetration of medical robots, as well as future prospects for growth.
