Technavio ICT analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global surgical navigation software market:

Increased investments on ambulatory surgery centers

Many surgeons have started practicing surgeriesusing the surgical navigation systems, especially for spinal, ENT, and orthopedic disorders. This trend is expected to continue during the forecast period and many complicated surgeries will be converted to MIS with the help of these surgical navigation systems. These factors have driven the market growth for the surgical navigation software.

Ishmeet Kaur, a lead enterprise application research analyst at Technavio, says, "Insurance companies provide high reimbursements for outpatient settings compared with hospital stays. This will also encourage surgeons to adopt computer-assisted navigation surgeries for the treatment of many disorders in an outpatient facility."

Fall of the hospital conglomerate

Before 2010, large hospitals developed research machines, while medium-sized hospitals merged to form conglomerates, and smaller hospitals struggled through various economic consequences. Large centers had advanced research infrastructure for capital-intensive surgical procedures. Since 2010, with the emergence of MIS practices, physicians and surgeons are gradually moving to start their own specialty practices and surgical centers by buying small hospitals, getting rid of unprofitable emergency rooms, and focusing on high skill and efficient procedures.

"Many hospitals have bi-weekly newsletters, interactive websites for patients, and media departments. Some advertise their use of MIS technologies, ranging from robotic surgery to surgical navigation systems, and seek to be the early adopters of new procedures. This will drive the market growth of surgical navigation software," adds Ishmeet.

Increased government support for surgical navigation systems

The governments of many regions, such as the US and China, support the adoption of surgical navigation systems and it has increased since 2012. As of 2016, there were more than 2,000 surgical robots and navigation systems in the US. FDA has requested surgeons to get used to the new computer and robotic-assisted surgeries by accepting the fact that they can no longer physically touch the operation site under the new procedure paradigm. The Chinese government is also encouraging every province to install at least one of these machines.
