Robot assisted surgery to dominate throughout the forecast period

Robot assisted surgery accounted for more than one-fourth of the total market share in 2017 and will dominate throughout the forecast period, owing to improved precision it provides during the complex surgeries. However, dosage error reduction is expected to register the highest growth rate, with a CAGR of 50.3% from 2017 to 2023, owing to early warnings offered by them for the calculation errors, incorrect orders, or mis-programming that can prevent under- or over-delivery of drugs or other fluids. The research also explores administrative workflow assistance, virtual nursing assistant, clinical trial participant identifier, fraud detection, preliminary diagnosis, and other segments.

Healthcare providers to dominate in terms of revenue by 2023

Healthcare providers contributed to a major market share in 2017, accounting for more than half of the total share. This is due to increase in demand to gain information accuracy for improvement in clinical outcomes, patient safety, surge in aid reforms, and steps taken to limit the expenditure. However, pharmaceuticals & biotechnology companies are expected to grow at the highest growth rate, with a CAGR of 49.7% from 2017 to 2023, owing to increase in the clinical trials success rate and the trial cost reduction. The research also explores payers and patients.

North America to dominate based on revenue by 2023

North America accounted for the leading share with nearly half of the total share in 2017 and is expected to dominate by 2023.
