Healthcare Assistive Robot Market Research, 2031

The global healthcare assistive robot market size was valued at $8.3 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $38.4 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 16.5% from 2022 to 2031. Healthcare assistive robots are the robots used in operating rooms and other clinical settings to support healthcare professionals and improve patient care. Furthermore, healthcare assistive robotics offer value in a variety of areas due to their faster processes and risk reduction.

These robots can clean and prepare patient rooms independently, reducing person-to-person interaction in infectious disease wards. Healthcare assistive robots with AI-enabled medicine identifier software reduced the time to identify, match, and give out medicine to patients in hospitals. Moreover, these robots will become more autonomous as technology evolves, eventually carrying out specific tasks fully on their own. As a result, physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals will have more time to spend in directly patient care.
