Medical Robotics and Computer-Assisted Surgery: The Global Market
The global MRCAS market was valued at nearly $2.2 billion in 2011 and should reach nearly $2.4 billion in 2012. Total market value is expected to reach nearly $4 billion in 2017 after increasing at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.6%.
This report is an analytical business tool with the primary purpose of describing the MRCAS equipment industry and the global market for these devices. MRCAS equipment is defined as computer- or microprocessor-enabled devices and accessories that are physically situated in the operating room and directly assist the surgeon in planning and carrying out surgical procedures. Thus, the scope of the study does not include:
- Devices that provide images and other information but are not an integral part of the MRCAS system, such as preoperative imaging (e.g., CT, MRI) equipment or laboratory and other analytical devices.
- Computerized medical records systems.
- Electronic operating room equipment such as heart monitors that enable the surgical team to monitor the patient’s condition but do not assist the surgeon directly in carrying out the operation.
- Other nonelectronic operating room equipment.
The format of the study is organized around the following topics:
- Major types and applications of MRCAS.
- Industry structure.
- Market size and segmentation, including historical data on sales by application, product type and geographical market.
- Market drivers.
- Detailed market projections through 2017.
- Competition and market shares.
- Observations and conclusions regarding the future of the MRCAS market.
