 A few of the key factors driving the market are the adoption of automated instruments by drug discovery departments of pharmaceutical companies, the rise in need for miniaturization, and technological advancements coupled with the rise in demand for robot-assisted surgeries.

Additional contributing factors include increased government initiatives, an increase in clinical trials due to greater R&D outsourcing to emerging nations, and rising expenditures for infrastructure development. For instance, due to government initiatives that place a high priority on domestic innovation in nations like South Korea and China, there are now more domestic manufacturers in the surgical automation industry that specialize in robotic-assisted surgeries. Examples include Curexo in South Korea, which even serves as the local distributor for THINK Surgical's TSolution robotic system, and TINAVI Medical Technologies in China. Over the forecast period, an increase in local companies will be key to the market's growth.

This is attributed to the rapid technological advancements in lab and pharmacy automation, as well as diagnostic and monitoring automation, which are generating global demand for healthcare automation. Increased government involvement is expected to drive the global healthcare automation market over the forecast period.

Healthcare automation provides cutting-edge solutions in hospital pharmacy automation, logistics and transport, and material handling applications. Healthcare automation is being invested in by labs and research facilities all around the world to simplify various processes and increase overall work productivity. This automation is helping research institutes leverage overall productivity in healthcare facilities, improve experimental data quality, and reduce lab process cycle times, as a result, increasing automation adoption by pharmacies, labs, and research centers is expected to drive market growth over the forecast period.

Furthermore, the rising prevalence of chronic illnesses, as well as the increasing implementation of automated diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, are driving market expansion. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), chronic illnesses are one of the main causes of death in the world, with cancer, stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and respiratory disorders accounting for roughly 60% of all fatalities. Furthermore, according to NCBI, by 2030, around 40.8% of the US population is expected to have one or more cardiovascular disorders, expanding the customer base for this industry.

Market players adopt strategies such as collaborations, launches, and mergers & acquisitions to strengthen their industry position. For instance, in June 2022, GE Healthcare collaborated with Medtronic to accelerate global access to personalized care by offering an advanced patient monitoring system on the CARESCAPE platform. This collaboration enabled GE Healthcare to advance patient care, improve decision-making, boost healthcare system efficiency, and link caregivers & their patients within an ecosystem
