The global medical simulation market estimated to be valued US$ XX Mn in 2018 and poised to grow at significant CAGR over 2019-2025. Some of the key factors influencing the market growth include increasing demand for minimally invasive treatments, growing geriatric population, rising focus on patient safety and enhanced penetration of advanced technologies in healthcare simulation. However, high operation cost of simulation and lack of funding are the factors restricting the market growth. In addition, high growth in emerging economies provides huge growth opportunity for the market.


Increasing Demand for Minimally Invasive Treatments is fueling the Market

 Minimally invasive surgery is performed on the patient’s body with tiny incisions instead of one large opening and ensures that it reduces hospital stay duration, recovery time, and patient trauma. Due to their associated advantages there is a growing demand for minimally invasive surgery and thus propelling the industry growth. The market for minimally invasive surgeries is also increased by the benefits such as superior results and faster recovery rates causing reduced length of hospitalization. Innovations and advancements in surgical tools are leading to an increased preference for minimally invasive surgical procedures. Technologies are experiencing fast acceptance and are viewed as modalities that allow physicians to perform increasingly complex minimally invasive procedures while enhancing patient safety.  Over the past few years the requirement of medical simulation in minimally invasive surgery has been recognized. Medical simulators provide a safe environment in which a physician can repeatedly practice a procedure without impacting patient safety. Hence, increasing demand for minimally invasive treatments increases the demand for the market.


High Cost of Simulators are Hampering the Market

 Simulators can be very expensive and require constant updates and maintenance. It takes effort  ‘lots of effort’ to create meaningful experiences. Running the simulator need to be trained on how to use the software and/or hardware and this takes up time and costs money. Hence, they are not affordable to many teaching hospitals. Therefore, high costs of simulators hampers the market growth.


North America Accounts for Larger Market Revenue Share in Global Medical Simulation Market

 North America accounted for larger revenue share in global Medical Simulation market with considerable CAGR. The growth in this region can be attributed to increasing aging population, well-established distribution channels, increasing prevalence of diabetes and obesity and rising road accidents. Further, ease of accessibility to technologies in the region is the other factor responsible for the growth of the market in the region. Also, U.S is the major contributor for the growth of the market in this region.
