Global Surgical Navigation Systems Market $355 Million by 2027

The global market for surgical navigation systems estimated to become $355 million by 2027, steadily growing at a CAGR of 3.4% over the forecast period, driven by technological capabilities being applied to medicine such as common imaging modalities, different image registration procedures and tracking mechanisms for spatial location. 

Global Surgical Navigation Systems Market
  • The surgical navigation systems have experienced a prominent progress in the recent years, due to advances in various image processing techniques.
    • For example, the computer assisted surgery (CAS) navigation systems help surgeons to track instruments and implants in real time during surgical procedures.
      • The image guided surgery (IGS) system uses preoperative data obtained from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computer tomography (CT), positron emission tomography, ultrasound, fluoroscopy or other imaging devices.

Computer-assisted surgical navigation systems have allowed a significant increase in effectiveness in a large number of high risk surgical procedures.

  • Imaging, navigation, integration in the modern operating room plays a key role in accurate surgical procedures. These are integrated into surgical navigation systems, which make complicated medical surgeries considerably safer.

The growing development in devices and tracking techniques, computer systems and algorithmic efficiency used in surgical navigation allow increasingly implementation of more accurate and versatile systems. These future navigators allow the realization of interventions with higher levels of complexity which require high accuracy and less risk for the patient.

  • The neurosurgical procedures supported by neuronavigational range widely from intracranial tumor resections to frame-less biopsies to pedicle screw placement and stabilization in the spine.
    • Medical imaging is an important prerequisite to enable navigation. Intraoperative imaging solutions can range from the integration of live ultrasound images to the integration of intraoperative MRI (iMRI) or CT in the operating room, thereby offering the best soft tissue contrast for tumor surgery.
      • For knee replacement surgery, navigation for orthopedic surgery offers preoperative planning, perioperative intervention, and accurate implant positioning.

The global surgical navigation systems market report estimates the market size ($million 2017 to 2027), market share, growth trends and forecast (CAGR% 2021 to 2027).

The global market for surgical navigation systems segmented by product [ neurosurgery navigation systems, ENT navigation systems, orthopedic navigation systems (orthopedic navigation systems, by referencing type – imageless orthopedic navigation systems, CT-based orthopedic navigation systems, fluoroscopy-based orthopedic navigation systems; orthopedic navigation systems market, by procedure – knee replacement, hip replacement), spinal navigation systems, dental navigation systems], technology (optical navigation systems, electromagnetic navigation systems, hybrid navigation systems), end user (hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers) , and geography.

  • Based on products, the neurosurgery navigation systems segment held the largest share in the total surgical navigation systems market, driven by the increasing demand for minimally invasive surgical procedures.
    • Neurosurgery navigation systems include usage of imaging technologies such as, magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, positron emission tomography (PET) scans and intra-operative MRI for generating three dimensional images of parts of the brain.
    • Diverse stereotactic neuro-navigation systems are used daily in neurosurgery and novel systems are continuously being developed. 
      • New features of intraoperative neuronavigation were associated with combining different modalities of neuroimaging: CT, conventional MRI, diffusion-tensor and functional MRI, as well as magnetoencephalography and electrophysiological mapping of speech, sensory, and motor areas of the cerebral cortex.
        • In addition, the augmented reality neuronavigation (ARN) systems can overlay three-dimensional anatomy and disease without the need for a two-dimensional external monitor. 
  • On the other hand, the increasing incidences of orthopedic diseases and rising cases of orthopedic implant surgeries worldwide estimated to expand the market share of orthopedic navigation systems during the forecast period.
    • Orthopedic surgery is a widely performed clinical procedure that deals with problems in relation to the bones, joints, and ligaments of the human body, such as musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders. 
      • Moreover , the computer-assisted orthopedic surgery (CAOS) systems have become one of the most important and challenging types of system in clinical orthopedics, as they enable precise treatment of musculoskeletal diseases, employing modern clinical navigation systems and surgical tools. 
    • Surgical navigation is generally recognized as the next generation technology of orthopedic surgery. The development of orthopedic navigation systems aims to analyze pre-, intra- and/or postoperative data in multiple modalities and provide an augmented reality 3-D visualization environment to improve clinical outcomes of surgical orthopedic procedures.
      • For example, in spine surgery, navigated pedicle screw placement may increase accuracy and safety, especially valuable when treating complex deformities. Improved accuracy of pelvic and peri-articular tumor resection and percutaneous fixation of acetabular and femoral neck fractures has also been achieved using navigation. 
        • The navigated arthroplasty techniques have addressed knee gap balancing and mechanical axis restoration as well as acetabular cup and glenoid baseplate positioning. 
    • The CT-based orthopedic navigation systems enable pre-operative planning, based on three dimensional images, generated using CT scanner.
    • The fluoroscopy-based orthopedic surgical navigation systems use mobile fluoroscopic devices such as C- arm, which are capable of producing real-time images during the surgery.
    • The image-free or imageless orthopedic navigation systems use navigators to reach the target site.

The global market research report is divided by geography (regional and country based) into North America (U.S., Canada), Europe (U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Rest of EU), Asia Pacific (Japan, China, India, Rest of APAC), Latin America (Brazil, Mexico, Rest of LA), and Rest of the World.

  • Geographically, the North America region dominated the global surgical navigation systems market, followed by the Europe region.
    • Factors such as modern healthcare infrastructure, rapid acceptance and adoption of novel technologies, favorable reimbursement policies, and availability of skilled healthcare professionals in community hospitals and outpatient surgery centers are supporting the market growth in developed regions.
  • On the other hand, the Asia Pacific market predicted to witness fastest growth rate, due to the rapidly increasing medical tourism industry and improving healthcare facilities in the emerging economies.
