The global haptic feedback surgical environment market is anticipated to reach USD 97.4 Million by 2027 from USD 22.4 Million in 2020, registering a CAGR of 14.3% during the forecast period 2021-2027. Haptics is touch feedback and includes kinesthetics (force) and cutaneous (tactile) feedback. The rising demand for technologically developed surgical robotic systems and simulators for medical training will propel the growth of the haptic feedback surgical environment market. The potential of haptic interfaces is used in various applications in the healthcare sector like cardiology, prostate cancer diagnosis, injection, lumbar puncture procedures, surgery, angioplasty interventions, dentistry procedures, etc.
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a stay at home, social distancing, avoiding physical contact, remote working, and travel restrictions globally. The Healthcare sector has adopted teleoperated haptic systems for remote training, resulting in the growth of the global haptic feedback surgical environment market.
Insight by Application
Based on the application, the global haptic feedback surgical environment is bifurcated into surgical robotics systems and medical simulators. Surgical robotics systems are growing significantly during the forecast period in the haptic feedback surgical environment as surgical robotics systems reduce patient trauma, less recovery time, decrease energy consumption during operation and reduce the overall cost. Moreover, minimally invasive robotic surgery has gained traction owing to the integration of haptics with surgical procedures and involves training surgeons via virtual simulators before performing actual surgeries on patients. Haptic-enabled medical simulators are playing a significant role in training medical students to simulate medical cases efficiently.
The growing trends of haptic-enabled VR/AR systems having high fidelity and realism will provide a proficient environment and enhance the skills of medical doctors will fuel the growth of the global haptic feedback surgical environment market.
The drivers for the growth of the global haptic feedback surgical environment market includes the development of raw material for haptic technology and rising adoption of technology in the surgical environment. Robot-assisted minimally invasive surgery (MIS) provides advantages like reduction of tissue trauma, intraoperative blood loss, postoperative infection risk, patient pain, aesthetic aspects, and recovery time. Thus, there is the integration of Haptic Technology in Simulation Systems and the increasing significance of Surgical Robotic Systems will fuel the global haptic feedback surgical environment market.
