According to a recent report by Credence Research, the global medical robotics market was valued at $7.24 billion in 2015 and is expected to grow to $20 billion by 2023. A key driver for this growth is demand for using robots in minimally invasive surgeries, especially for neurological, orthopaedic, and laparoscopic procedures.

As a result, a wide range of robots is being developed to serve in a variety of roles within the medical environment. Robots specialising in human treatment include surgical robots and rehabilitation robots. The field of assertive and therapeutic robotic devices is also expanding rapidly. These include robots that help patients rehabilitate from serious conditions like strokes, empathetic robots that assist in the care of older or physically/mentally challenged individuals, and industrial robots that take on a variety of routine tasks, such as sterilising rooms and delivering medical supplies and equipment, including medications.
