POINT OF CARE - YOLE DEVELOPPEMENT

Positive dynamics of microfluidic-based Point-of-Need

PoN market growth is driven mainly by PoC applications (human diagnostics), which enable the rapid analysis of patients’ samples out of reference laboratories, in a decentralized way. Therefore, PoC diagnostics allow patients to receive an appropriate treatment faster, and reduce costs by lowering the duration and frequency of a hospital stay. Some tests are also used to monitor a patient’s condition over time.
In this context, the market research and strategy consulting company, Yole Développement (Yole) announces a US$4 billion microfluidic market for PoN testing applications in 2017 with a 23% growth rate year-over-year by 2023. According to its analysts, the microfluidic market for PoN testing should reach around US$13.2 billion at the end of the period. “This impressive growth will be driven by a high interest from IVD companies for PoN solutions” asserts Asma Siari, Technology & Market Analyst at Yole. “In addition, investors will also play a key role through strong investments in decentralized testing technologies”...

MEDICAL ROBOTICS - YOLE DEVELOPPEMENT

Jan. 31 | Sensor technologies enable the surgical robots’ revolution

It is now a fact: sensors are step by step changing the medical industry landscape. Such technologies have already reshaped the huge US$35 billion medical imaging market . But what about the surgical robots market?
Robotics has only impacted the healthcare industry over the past 25 years. Unlike industrial or consumer robots, medical robots are facing challenges linked to regulations or healthcare organization: reimbursement policies, cost of entry, differences in healthcare systems. Studies have shown, however, that robotic surgery cuts down on the trauma and healing time for specific applications. As surgeons become more familiar with using robots for surgery, and as more companies provide medical robots, there will come a day when robots are used in almost every hospital.
According to Yole Développement (Yole), the surgical robotics market will experience an impressive 17% CAGR, from US$3.4 billion in 2016 to US$8.8 billion in 2022. Each “participant” sees added value in this technology: minimal invasiveness for the patient, enhanced microsurgery and precision capabilities for the surgeon, and cost optimization for the healthcare system, due to patients’ shorter recovery time.
