Minimally invasive surgical (MIS) technology ecosystem is one of the foremost fields in the healthcare domain, which witnessed a significant impact due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Analyzing the performance and prospects of different companies offering MIS technologies, in the past decade (2010-2019), the year 2020 was expected to be the head start for the ubiquitous incorporation of MIS technology and rise of next-generation MIS technologies such as hand-held robotic MIS equipment, miniaturized surgical robotics, and autonomous surgical robotics, among others. However, what started as an outbreak in China at the end of 2019, has completely shifted the course of the MIS technology ecosystem and resulted in a massive impact on MIS technology ecosystem.
Globally, the exponential rise in the number of COVID-19 cases has significantly increased the pressure on the healthcare ecosystem, specifically on the healthcare providers. Due to the roll-out of regulations that recommended de-prioritization of elective surgeries, resulted in a massive decrease in every-day MIS procedures and consequentially impacted the global revenue of the MIS technology ecosystem.
In the pre-COVID-19 scenario, it was estimated that the year 2020 would witness an annual MIS procedure volume of 138.5 million and, similarly 2021, would witness 144.9 million MIS procedures. However, since in most of the countries, hospitals have been advised to deprioritize elective surgeries, the global MIS procedure volume is expected to be slashed by 40%, to drop to 83.1 million in 2020.
