Market Overview

The European medical simulation market is expected to register a CAGR of nearly 12.7 % during the forecast period. 

The propelling factors for the growth of the European medical simulation market include continuous technological advancements, increasing concerns over patient safety, and increasing demand for minimally invasive treatments. Minimally invasive techniques are becoming the standards for surgical techniques, at a very fast pace, for a number of surgical procedures. 

Minimally invasive surgical procedures involve smaller incisions leading to quicker recovery, which in turn, helps in the growth of the European medical simulation market. According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) 2017 report, in Iceland, about 97.7% of tonsillectomies (tonsillectomy surgeries) were carried out as ambulatory cases in 2017, the highest share in Europe region.

The METIman simulator is found to be one of the most advanced and realistic simulators in recent times, developed by the CAE simulators. 

Thus, the rise in various technological advancements in the field of medical simulation is increasing the applications in healthcare to train healthcare professionals, and as a result of which, the growth of the market studied is expected to propel over the forecast period. 

Scope of the Report

As per the scope of the report, medical simulation is the modern-day methodology for training healthcare professionals through the use of advanced educational technology. Medical simulation is experiential learning that every healthcare professional may need, but cannot be always engaged in during real-life patient care. The Europe medical simulation market is segmented by products and services, technology, end-user, and geography.

Key Market Trends

Laparoscopic Surgical Simulators Anticipated to be the Fastest Growing Segment During the Forecast Period

Surgeons are shifting to minimally invasive surgeries, primarily towards laparoscopy and robotic surgery from open surgery. However, laparoscopy and robotic surgeries require skilled surgeons to deliver successful procedures. There has been rapid adoption of minimally invasive surgeries in the cholecystectomy, appendectomy, gastric bypass, ventral hernia repair, colectomy, prostatectomy, tubal ligation, hysterectomy, and myomectomy procedures.

According to the Office for National Statistics (UK) 2018 survey report, estimated that in the period 2016-2018, there were about 30,000 healthcare professionals working in London, the highest number in any region in the United Kingdom. There were a further 16,000 EU nationals working in the health sector in the South East and ten thousand employees in the East of England. Thus, the rising number of health care workers show a positive impact on the market.

Thus, the increasing number of minimally invasive surgeries and the need for skilled professionals have propelled the laparoscopic surgical simulators segment of the market studied.
