Robots continue to become smarter, cheaper, faster, and more commonplace. In 2019 the global robotics market was worth $115B, and it is expected to surpass $275B by 2025, according to GlobalData forecasts.
In the healthcare industry, medical robots including surgical robots, exoskeletons, care robots, and hospital robots continue to be utilized to improve patient health outcomes and reduce burden on healthcare workers. Surgical robots allow for minimally invasive procedures and reduce human error, while other robots such as hospital and care robots reduce the burden of care and mundane tasks.
The main drivers for the increasing use of robotics in the healthcare industry include aging populations and technological advancements. Some of the limitations include the high cost of the technology and inadequate research, data, and experience.
Overall, GlobalData expects that the use of robots will increase within the healthcare industry in the next 5 years. Healthcare providers that take advantage of robotics in their facilities are expected to benefit.

Reasons to buy
Companies who invest in the right themes become success stories; those who miss the big themes end up as failures. Corporate executives and investors who want to outperform their competitors need to understand all the themes that impact their sector. However, many of these themes are, by definition, outside of the core competencies of company boardrooms because they typically originate from external industries. This robotics in healthcare thematic report provides a top-down outlook for the key players and trends over the next few years.
