Powered surgical instruments are advanced electromechanical devices that are used to perform various surgical procedures, particularly minimally invasive surgeries. These instruments use electric motors and batteries to power mechanical movements such as sawing, cutting, stapling, and drilling with precision. Their advanced functions allow surgeons to perform complex operations through small incisions leading to reduced blood loss, pain, scarring and shorter hospital stays for patients. Key powered instruments include drill systems, saw systems, staplers, reamers, shavers, and bone removal systems.
The Powered Surgical Instruments Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2.10 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.0% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Technological advancements – Ongoing R&D by key players is leading to continuous innovations and new product launches in powered surgical devices. Companies are focusing on developing industry 4.0 technologies such as robotics, AI, IoT in surgical tools to improve precision and outcomes.
