Investing in Healthcare Robotics

The ability to spot major growth trends ahead of the tide is critical for successful investing, yet oftentimes the potential is missed. Robotics & automation are rapidly changing the healthcare landscape into a market that will soon be worth $11.4 billion  - for those who recognize this growth potential, here is your overview for investing in robotics, particularly in the medical space.

For investors, the robotics and automation revolution is global, transformational and sustainable. It will make our lives better, safer, and easier. As individuals and investors, we are living through an amazing period of technological advancement and investment opportunity. Technologies such as machine vision, motion sensors, navigation algorithms and artificial intelligence are enabling robots to perform increasingly sophisticated, mobile and delicate knowledge-based work. This widens their use to an incredible array of products and services across our business, service and consumer lives.

ROBO Global recognized the enormous growth prospects and rapid market developments early on and created the first index to track and capture the economic value of robotics, automation, and enabling technologies. We provide diversified and broad access to this revolution by capturing companies across 15 countries and 13 subsectors.

Healthcare is one of the subsectors within the index and our team of robotics industry leaders and financial experts searches worldwide to find market leading companies for possible future index inclusion. This robotics market overview provides a glimpse into our Healthcare subsector.

 

WHY NOW?

 

As global healthcare costs continue to rise, robotics and automation is poised to provide a countering force to this trend. Through rehabilitation, diagnostics, exoskeletons and elderly care, robotics and autonomous systems promises to drastically reduce costs, while improving quality of life. In addition, robotics and automation can transcend cost-cutting by using robots for difficult surgeries and neurological treatments that were previously unfeasible.
