As per the American Cancer Society, Inc., as of 2023, approximately 238,340 adults (117,550 men and 120,790 women) in the US have been diagnosed with lung cancer, and ~127,070 (67,160 in men and 59,910 in women) have succumbed to death due to the disease. Lung Cancer accounts for 1 in 5 of all cancer deaths, making it a leading cause of cancer death in the US. These include both small cell lung cancer and NSCLC. NSCLC is the most common type of lung cancer, account 81% of all lung cancer diagnoses. For all types of lung cancer in the US, the 5-year relative survival rate is 23%, and for NSCLC, the 5-year relative survival rate for men and women is 23% and 33%, respectively. In the US, screening for lung cancer is recommended with a test called a spiral computed tomography (CT or CAT) scan. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) states that people aged 50–80 and with a history of smoking 20 pack years or more should undergo lung cancer screening with LDCT scans each year. Furthermore, robotic-assisted surgery for lung cancer offers advantages over open chest surgery, as it requires a shorter hospital stay and faster recovery time. Thus, the increasing number of lung cancer incidences has resulted in the surging demand for surgical robots.

Cancer and diabetes are leading causes of mortality across the world. In 2021, in the Netherlands, as per the Dutch Cancer Registry, approximately 123,672 new cancer cases were registered in that year. Breast cancer surgeries are among the most common procedures in plastic surgery. Furthermore, according to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), the number of people having diabetes is expected to grow from ~537 million in 2021 to 783 million by 2045.

Moreover, robots are used for bariatric surgery as well. Therefore, many governments are taking initiatives to increase awareness. For Instance, in 2021, the UK government revised the policies to care for obese patients undergoing bariatric surgery. The policies include:

  • Equipping the National Health Service (NHS) for the rapidly increasing obese population in England, instructing proper operational policies required for the planning, assessment, and management of the manual handling risks for the treatment of bariatric patients
  • Designing buildings and vehicles to accommodate bariatric patients safely, comfortably, and with dignity.

Such government initiatives in the country make people feel comfortable and secure. Thus, with more people opting for this procedure, the bariatric surgery devices market will likely witness notable growth in the coming years.  

Several market players are adopting organic strategies to stay competitive in the market. For Instance, in October 2022, Medtronic received a CE mark for the Hugo robotic-assisted surgery (RAS) system in Europe for general surgery procedures. The CE mark for general surgery spans several specialties, including bariatric, hernia, and colorectal. Thus, growing government initiatives to improve awareness of bariatric surgeries are driving the surgical robots market.
