Global Medical Robots Market Size (2024 to 2029)

As per our report, the global medical robots market size is estimated to grow to USD 33.75 billion by 2029 from USD 12.90 billion in 2024, growing at a CAGR of 21.2% during the forecast period. The FDA approval of Vinci X robots developed by Intuitive Surgical was a sensation in the global medical robots market and developed intense competition.

Current Scenario of the Global Medical Robots Market

Robots in the medical sector made all tasks simple, secure, and efficient. Robots are primarily involved in doing surgeries with high precision. The success rate of surgical robots is very high than that of human surgeons. They can perform surgery even in tiny places accurately by taking more responsibility. The surgeon will have access to operate the robotic arms remotely with a small 3D camera and dime-sized instruments through tiny incisions inside the patient's body parts. Also, medical robots can perform many tasks other than surgeries like carrying heavyweight and others.


The increasing R&D activities by the market participants, the availability of advanced healthcare infrastructure, and the rapid adoption of the latest technological advancements are propelling the global medical robots market growth.

Medical robots are specialized robots used for a variety of tasks in the healthcare industry including in the treatment procedures of neurological and orthopedic diseases. Medical robots such as robotic-assisted surgical systems, exoskeleton devices and rehabilitation robots are used in surgical procedures and aid humans suffering from neurological and orthopedic conditions. Rising preference for minimally invasive surgeries, growing adoption of the latest advanced medical technologies and robotics, growing decrepit population, an increase of funding for medical robot research, acceptance the laparoscopic robotics procedures, and development of technologies in medical robotics are further contributing to the growth of the medical robots market. In addition, growing incidences of chronic diseases worldwide and a growing aging population are promoting the need for medical robots.

The growing prevalence of neurological and orthopedic diseases is accelerating the growth rate of the medical robots market. The population suffering from neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and epilepsy is growing rapidly worldwide. WHO says an estimated 50 million people worldwide are suffering from dementia and approximately 10 million new cases are being added. As per the data published by the Parkinson’s Foundation, an estimated 1 million people in the U.S. are suffering from Parkinson’s disease and this number is predicted to hit 1.2 million by 2030. As per the same source, an estimated 10 million people are suffering from Parkinson’s disease. On the other hand, the patient population suffering from orthopedic diseases such as arthritis, osteoporosis, and spinal disorders is growing continuously. As per the information said by the Arthritis Foundation, an estimated 78.4 million adults in the United States are predicted to suffer from doctor-diagnosed arthritis. In recent years, the usage of medical robots in the surgical procedures of neurological and orthopedic diseases has increased tremendously. For instance, medical robots such as the Mazor X robotic surgical system is used for spinal surgery, and the ROSA robot is used for brain surgery.

In addition, the growing number of healthcare centers and increasing patient flow to the hospitals, the government's increasing investments in the pharmaceutical sector to provide effective treatment procedures are further anticipated to project a favorable impact on the market growth. Furthermore, the increasing adoption of medical robots, growing per capita healthcare expenditure in developing emerging countries, and technological advancements in medical robots integrated with surgeon/patient approval for laparoscopic and robotic assistance are promoting the market’s growth rate. Furthermore, with the rise in rehabilitation centers with the help of robot assistance, technological advancements associated with medical robot systems are projected to fuel the medical robots market growth.


The lack of skilled operators monitoring the medical robotic systems and the growing incidence of system failures in the real-time application due to technical glitches and negligence of staff are hampering the market’s growth rate. In addition, high costs associated with the treatment procedures are also a factor limiting the growth of the market for medical robots.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global medical robots market

The World Health Organization announced COVID-19 as a pandemic in March 2020, and many countries imposed a nationwide lockdown and restrictions on movement. COVID-19 has affected the major sectors of the economy except in the case of pharmaceutical industries. The sudden outbreak has resulted in changes in the economy. During the initial stages, the pharma industry declined in growth because there were no research and development activities made during the initial phase of the pandemic. Due to the Nationwide lockdown and ban on flights, no exchange activities were made, which resulted in a downfall in the market growth. Likewise, the medical robots market was negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in the initial days. However, due to the reduced impact of COVID-19, the medical robots market is anticipated to recover quickly and register a healthy CAGR in the coming years.
