Surgical robots form the largest segment which was worth USD 3.77 billion in 2011 and is expected to reach USD 8.47 billion in 2018, growing at a CAGR of 11.5% from 2012 to 2018. Prime surgical robots such as the da Vinci robotic system are pioneers in this market segment. However, the high cost of this system and introduction of cheaper robotic laparoscopy surgery solutions such as Telelap ALF-X system may turn out to be a major competition for this segment in the future.

Rapid growth is expected in other segments such as non-medical robots in hospitals and assistive and rehabilitation systems. The non-medical robots in hospitals comprise a wide range of robots such as telemedicine robots, cart transportation robots and robotic hospital pharmacy systems. At present, thousands of hospitals in the U.S. and Europe have integrated transportation robots in their operation systems. It is believed that incorporation of automation in day-to-day non-critical tasks in hospitals would result in saving human labor and also ultimately lower healthcare costs.
