Market Overview

The Japan Surgical Robots Market Size was valued at USD 107.2 million in 2021 to USD 297.1 million by 2030 at a CAGR OF 12.01% from during the forecast period (2022-2030). Japan's surgical robot market is becoming increasingly competitive as domestic companies take on American manufacturers that dominated the industry. In Japan, an increasing number of robotic operations are currently covered by public health insurance. If costs decrease due to more competition, the use of these robots may become more prevalent. In 2020, Medicaroid, a partnership between Japan's Kawasaki Heavy Industries and Japanese clinical testing equipment manufacturer Sysmex, released the first domestically developed surgical robot, known as "hinotori," to compete with Intuitive Surgical's hegemony in the market for surgical robots. Their product reportedly moves more easily, particularly in small operating rooms.

In December 2022, the Hugo system was introduced by Irish medical device maker Medtronic. With four independent arms, the robot can be configured differently depending on the sort of operation being performed.

Driving Factors

The market for surgical robots in Japan has grown significantly in recent years, and it is anticipated that this trend will keep growing in the upcoming years. One of the primary drivers of this growth is that Japan has a number of the oldest populations in the world, with a significant proportion of its population having over 65. This has raised the demand for surgical operations as well as other healthcare services. Additionally, the market is expanding primarily due to the rising demand for minimally invasive procedures. The field of surgical robotics is constantly evolving, with new advancements being made in areas such as artificial intelligence and machine learning. The surgical robotics market in Japan is anticipated to experience novel opportunities for innovation and expansion as a result of these advancements. Moreover, the Japan government has been actively promoting the adoption of advanced medical technologies, including robotic surgery systems. This support has helped to drive growth in the market. In addition, Japan's robust healthcare system is well-suited to encourage the adoption of cutting-edge medical innovations like surgical robots. Overall, these factors are expected to continue driving growth in the Japan surgical robots market in the coming years.


Restraining Factors

The expansion of the surgical industry is hindered by the cost of purchasing and maintaining surgical robots, which can be a barrier to adoption for some hospitals and healthcare providers. Surgical robotics is a highly regulated industry, and getting regulatory approval for new technologies may be a time-consuming and costly procedure. This can be a barrier to entry for smaller companies or those without significant financial resources. Moreover, the surgical robots market in Japan is highly competitive and there are several well-established companies worldwide. This can make it difficult for new companies to gain a foothold in the market. These restraining factors should be taken into consideration when evaluating the potential growth of the Japan surgical robots market.


COVID 19 Impacts 

The COVID-19 epidemic has a favorable effect on the market for these devices because surgical robots can reduce contact between medical staff and patients, the COVID-19 epidemic has a favorable effect on the market for these devices.. The COVID-19 pandemic had a beneficial effect on the Japanese surgical robots business because surgical robots have many benefits, including reducing interaction between healthcare providers and patients and lowering contamination and pathogen spread.


Market Segment

In 2021, the neurosurgery segment is leading the market with the largest market share during the forecast period.

Based on system application, the Japan surgical robots market is divided into various segments, such as, general surgery, gynaecological surgery, orthopaedic surgery, and neurosurgery. Among these, neurosurgery is expected to expand the growth of the market owing to the increasing usage of robots in neurosurgery procedures due to the advantages that surgical robots have over traditional surgical methods, which are expected to speed up the expansion of the segments. Also, the rising prevalence of neurological problems like strokes, neurodegenerative diseases, epilepsy, persistent migraines, and others, as well as the rising pace of new technology being adopted by doctors.


In 2021, The Hospital segment is influencing the market over the forecast period.
