Report Outlook

Global minimally invasive surgery market size was valued at USD 29.36 billion in 2023. The market is anticipated to grow from USD 33.43 billion in 2024 to USD 113.23 billion by 2032, exhibiting the CAGR of 16.5% during the forecast period

Minimally Invasive Surgery Market Overview

Minimally invasive surgery procedures utilize small instruments, cameras, and lights to minimize the size and number of incisions made during surgery. This approach is safer than traditional open surgery, resulting in fewer complications, faster recovery, reduced blood loss, better outcomes, and shorter hospital stays. These advantages have contributed to the growing popularity of minimally invasive surgeries among surgeons and patients worldwide. These procedures are primarily used in orthopedic, vascular, neurological, and cardiothoracic surgeries.

  • For instance, in January 2024, Arthrex recently introduced, a new patient-oriented resource that showcases the science and advantages of Nano arthroscopy. This innovative orthopedic procedure is minimally invasive and has the potential to facilitate a swift return to activity with reduced pain.

The global minimally invasive surgery market opportunity is experiencing growth due to several key factors. These include an increased demand for minimally invasive procedures, higher funding from private and public organizations for healthcare infrastructure development, and ongoing technological advancements in the field. The prevalence of chronic diseases such as kidney, heart, respiratory, and gastrointestinal disorders is also contributing to this growth. For instance, in 2021, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that chronic diseases, including diabetes, cancer, respiratory disorders, and cardiovascular diseases, accounted for 4.1 million, 1.5 million, 9.3 million, and 17.9 million deaths worldwide, respectively. Chronic illnesses collectively claim 41 million lives annually, representing 71% of all global fatalities.

The increasing elderly population further propels the minimally invasive surgery market expansion, as older individuals are more susceptible to chronic ailments. Moreover, a surge in surgical procedures contributes to market growth. This growth is supported by advancements in robotic assistance technology and greater public recognition of the advantages of minimally invasive surgery. However, the high cost of these procedures is expected to restrict the market's expansion during the forecast period.   

Minimally Invasive Surgery Market Dynamics

Market Drivers

Growing Number of Orthopedic Conditions  

During the forecast period, the global minimally invasive surgery market development is expected to experience growth driven by an increasing prevalence of orthopedic disorders. For instance, at July 2022 according to the World Health Organization (WHO), as of approximately 1.71 billion people worldwide are affected by musculoskeletal disorders. The global population is aging, leading to a higher prevalence of orthopedic disorders such as osteoarthritis and fractures, particularly among older adults. This demographic trend is driving an increased demand for orthopedic surgeries. Simultaneously, advances in minimally invasive surgical techniques have enhanced the effectiveness and safety of these procedures for orthopedic conditions. Patients are increasingly choosing minimally invasive surgery due to its shorter recovery times, reduced post-operative pain, and lower risk of complications compared to traditional open surgeries.

Adoption of MIS more often than open procedures

Laparoscopic treatments are less invasive and cost-effective in comparison to traditional procedures, impacting hospital stays and pre- and post-operative care. Patients undergoing laparoscopic surgeries experience quicker recovery, reduced blood loss, and fewer post-operative complications. Additionally, in some countries, health insurance providers are starting to cover these minimally invasive procedures. This is because doctors believe that these procedures can help hospitals save money, making them preferential to traditional open surgeries.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Market Restraints

The expensive nature of robotic systems

Robot-assisted surgeries are notably more costly than less invasive procedures, often resulting in delays or the avoidance of treatment altogether. Adding to the already high expense of robotic surgery is the maintenance cost of around USD 125,000 per year. Decreases in hospital budgets have been noted across European countries, with further cuts anticipated in the future. As a result of these budget constraints, cost-containment strategies are becoming increasingly necessary in various areas of hospital operations.

Hazard of Unfavorable Events and Problems

Despite the advantages of less invasive surgical treatments, there is still a potential for complications, albeit less than with open surgeries. These complications can lead to shorter recovery periods and fewer issues overall. However, concerns about patient safety, including risks of organ damage, hemorrhage, or infection, during these treatments can make healthcare practitioners hesitant to use MIS techniques.
