Global Robotics Market Segmentation and Forecast 2014-2020


Reading time ( words)

Advances in healthcare technology over the years have showed tremendous growth. From surgical devices to radio imaging and treatment methods, all aspects of medicines have taken technological leaps in the recent decades, making healthcare technology one of the most lucrative markets. The demand for robotics in healthcare, especially surgical procedures is increasing. Robotic procedures are deemed safer in situations where humans might make errors, as robotic procedures have far greater precision and leave minimum margin for error, and therefore having robotic systems in a hospital would be able to generate more revenue. Robots can also create better clinical outcomes and curtail labour costs, leading to an exponential growth in demand.

However, surgery is not the only field with robotic advancements. Robotic panels are found in all segments of healthcare, such as sanitation and for disinfecting purposes, sterilization of instruments, processing laboratory supplies and other fields where technology aids and can replace human effort. Robotics in medicine is viewed as an all-round technological advancement, which is not limited to only one section. This is potentially the biggest leap in technology for the healthcare industry since the introduction of IT and has the scope of commercially being a vibrant industry with extensive chains of supply, production and R&D development. This technology, however, is limited to economies that are invested in medical care to a great extent. For instance, the possibility of investment into robotic arms to enhance surgical procedure in public hospitals in a developing country such as Ghana is unlikely but the developed economies of North America and Europe are the most lucrative markets for medical robotics as they have significantly invested in healthcare. However; Asian countries such as India and China are the markets of the future as the governments of these countries are putting in efforts to improve healthcare and the economies will show a significant growth.

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

01/11/2021 | Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007
CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.

CES 2020: The Intelligence of Things

01/06/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Show week for CES 2020 starts well ahead of the actual exhibition dates because it is huge. The organizers of CES state that there are more than 4,400 exhibiting companies and nearly three million net square feet of exhibit space. On the floor, you can find 307 of the 2018 Fortune Global 500 companies. Over the week, I-Connect007 Editors Dan Feinberg and Nolan Johnson will bring you some of the most interesting news, products, and announcements from 5G to IoT, semiconductor developments, autonomous vehicle technology, interconnect, fabrication materials, and much more.
