Chapter 1: Introduction
The global medical robotics and computer-assisted surgery (MRCAS) market is relatively nascent, and the application of MRCAS in the medical is expected to steadily increase. The market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.3% from 2016 to 2021, primarily due to the growth in laparoscopic surgeries, such as bariatric surgeries, and hysterectomy and myomectomy surgeries; cardiac surgeries; and rising healthcare expenditure.

The medical robotics market is broadly divided into eight types based on the types of robotics used: surgical robots; noninvasive radio surgery robots; rehabilitation robots; disinfection robots; laboratory robots; hospital and pharmacy automation; assistive robots; and telemedicine robots. Along with it, computer-assistive surgery is also segmented into three types: surgical navigation system; intelligent operating room; and surgical simulators and planners.

Surgical robotics and computer-assisted surgery are widely used in for the following applications: orthopedic, neurosurgical, ear-nose-throat (ENT), cardiac, prosthetic, gastrointestinal, urology and other applications.

The global demand for MRCAS is driven by the increasing demand for MRCAS and an increasing geriatric population. An increase in disposable income in the Asia-Pacific region is also expected to drive the market through 2021.

The global market for MRCAS is growing, primarily driven by North America, Asia-Pacific and Europe regions.

Chapter 2: Summary and Highlights
Medical robotics are humanoids or electro-mechanical surgeons operated using computer programs with the help of the human surgeons. It is used to provide greater access to complex areas by precise and minimally invasive methods where the surgeons feel it is difficult to operate manually.

The market for MRCAS is expected to grow, mainly due to an expected growth in demand for laparoscopic and cardiac surgeries. The rising geriatric populations in the Asia-Pacific region, North
America and Europe are also expected to drive the global MRCAS market. The increasing use of MRCAS because of its minimally invasive surgery capability, reduced pain and blood loss and quick patient recovery is expected to drive the market through 2021.

Surgical robotics and computer-assisted surgery find major applications in orthopedic, neurosurgical, ENT, cardiac, prosthetic, gastrointestinal, urology and other applications. The surgical robots accounted for 70.3% and 78.4% of the global medical robotics, and surgical robotics and computer-assisted surgery markets, respectively, in 2016.
BCC Research projects that the global MRCAS market will grow from over $4.0 billion in 2016 to more than $6.8 billion by 2021 at a five-year CAGR of 11.3%.

The global surgical robotics and computer-assisted surgery market is segregated into four major types, among these surgical robots has the highest share of 78.4% with a $3.1 billion market, followed by surgical navigation systems with share of 14.9% with a $596.7 million market in 2016. Intelligent operating rooms and surgical simulators and planners had a combined share of 6.7%.
The surgical robotics market is expected to rise primarily due to increased incidence of osteoarthritis, rising geriatric population and increasing awareness of surgical robotics and computer-assisted surgery among the patient population. New surgical planning software, intra-operative imaging, instrument tracking technologies, web-based and on premise mode of delivery to patients will drive market for surgical navigation systems and intelligent operating rooms.

Surgical simulators and planners, the fastest-growing market, will be driven by expected growth in minimally invasive surgery technologies, growing focus on the safety of patients, virtual reality devices and increased focus on training medical practitioners.
