36 | ghp June 2015 innovation Surgical Robots Market Worth $20 Billion by 2021 This 2015 surgical robots market research says ro- bots bring new automated processes to all segments and worldwide surgical robot markets are poised to achieve significant growth as next generation systems provide a way to improve traditional open surgery and decrease the number of ports needed for minimally invasive surgery. Intuitive Surgical has market leadership position, advanced technology, an impressive installed base and a well-trained group of surgeons able to manage the robots. Other leading competitors will emerge in the surgical robots market and the group of several surgical robot- ic companies will collectively have enough marketing dollars and enough marketing clout to drive replace- ment of all open surgery. Robotic surgery is positioned to become the standard of care. The leading robotic surgical companies are poised to grow through acquisition, purchasing smaller companies that have developed as specialized product and gained FDA ap- proval. A surgical robot recurring revenue model busi- ness model is essentially large one time purchase for a system complimented by replaceable or disposable instruments that cumulatively market a much larger and ongoing market. Vendors make money from the one time sale of a system and recurring revenue from sale of devices used in every operation. Initially, a vendor sells and installs the surgical system into new customer accounts. Once systems are sold into customer accounts, the vendor generates recurring revenue as our customers use the system to perform surgery. To do surgeries, the customers need to buy and consume instruments and accessory products. Vendors also generate recurring revenue from system service. The ability to deliver such an accurate dose of radiation means that the cancer can be eradicated in patients before the patient is admin- istered a lethal dose of radiation. This represents a cure for cancer once it gets working according to the promise of the systems now in place.

The Accuray radiation systems that address the oncol- ogy market are perhaps the most exciting technology ever offered to any market. Because the systems are able to control the dose of radiation Amount of activity in the market, many companies, FDA approvals, way for existing vendors to improve footprint in market. The automated process revolution in surgery and com- munications is being implemented via robots. Robots automation of systems is providing significant improve- ment in the accuracy of surgery and the repeatability of process. Existing open surgery can be replaced in large part by robotic minimally invasive surgery (MIS) during the forecast period. Minimally invasive robotic surgery, new robotic radiation treatment, and emerging robotic surgical approaches complement existing sur- gery techniques. Soon, all surgery will be undertaken with at least come aspects of robotic surgery replacing or complementing open surgery. The aging US population has supported demand, since the occurrence of health issues that require medical devices is higher in the elderly population. Buoyed by strong demand and sales, industry profit margins have increased considerably during the past five years. Hospitals are adopting robotic surgical de- vices to improve their outcomes numbers. Hospitals are measured on outcomes, robots for surgery, when used by a trained physician are improving outcomes significantly. Hundreds of universities worldwide have research programs in robotics and many are award- ing degrees in robotics. These “roboticists” are in- creasingly being hired by Global 2000 organizations to link mobile robots (mobile computers) into existing IT systems. Compared with other minimally invasive surgery approaches, robot-assisted surgery gives the surgeon better control over the surgical instruments and a better view of the surgical site. Surgeons no longer have to stand throughout the surgery and do not tire as quickly. Hand tremors are filtered out by the robot’s computer software. The surgical robot can continuously be used by rotating surgery teams.
