Minimally-invasive techniques are becoming standard for surgical technique, at a very fast pace, for several surgical procedures. In minimally-invasive surgery, doctors use various methods to operate with minimal damage to the body as opposed to traditional open surgery. In general, minimally-invasive surgery is associated with less pain, shorter hospital stay, and fewer complications. By developing true integrated solutions, minimally-invasive procedures are beginning to replace traditional surgical care in other medical domains as well. The demand for this surgery is increasing due to higher accuracy rate with relatively reduced pain, and less infections.
Therefore, the requirement of medical simulation in minimally-invasive surgery has been established over the past few years. The minimally-invasive techniques are becoming the standards of surgical techniques, at a very fast pace, for a number of surgical procedures. These procedures involve smaller incisions leading to quicker recovery, which helps in the growth of the overall market.
Key Market Trends
High-fidelity Simulators Segment is Expected to Show Better Growth in the Forecast Years
Based on technology, the market is segmented into high-fidelity, medium-fidelity, and low-fidelity simulators. The high- fidelity simulators (HFS) are the latest models incorporated in computer hardware technology, which includes wireless and programmed, full-body patient presentation. A high-fidelity manikin can be used for a variety of high stakes learning scenarios, such as a mock code, postpartum hemorrhage, or mass casualty incident.
Currently, high-fidelity simulations are widely accepted in nursing education, and are introduced into acute care to support with orientation programs, continuing education, certification courses, and staff development. Hence, the requirement of realistic models to provide better training environment is promoting the usage of high-fidelity simulators.
The market is highly fragmented with many players. With many small and medium players, the competition is high. The major players into the Asia-Pacific medical simulation market are 3D Systems, Canadian Aviation Electronics (CAE) Inc., Kyoto Kagaku Co. Ltd, Laerdal Medical, Limbs & Things Ltd, Mentice AB, Simulab Corporation.
