Medical Disinfection Robots Market Growth Fueled by Rising Investments and Funding 2030

The global medical disinfection robots market is experiencing significant growth, fueled by substantial funding and investments, according to recent reports. With traditional infection removal methods proving to be only 60% effective, the adoption of medical disinfection robots has gained momentum due to their perceived effectiveness in controlling the spread of infectious diseases. The outbreak of COVID-19 has further accelerated the utilization of medical disinfection robots in healthcare facilities, including hospitals and public spaces.

Manufacturers in the medical disinfection robot industry are responding to the growing global demand by developing new products incorporating advanced technologies. This has led to a surge in funding and investments in the sector. For instance, in 2020, Wyoming’s State Loan and Investment Board provided a $4.5 million COVID relief grant to Memorial Hospital in Sweetwater County, in addition to a previous $1.2 million grant for the purchase of UV medical disinfection robots. Diligent Robotics secured a series “A” investment of $10 million in the same year to support hospitals utilizing its medical disinfection robots. Additionally, NGen (Next Generation Manufacturing Canada) invested $5 million in 2020 to manufacture medical disinfection robots aimed at controlling the spread of COVID-19.

Opportunities Arising from Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs)

The rise in Healthcare Associated Infections (HAIs) presents significant opportunities for manufacturers of medical disinfection robots. HAIs continue to pose a challenge to healthcare facilities worldwide, with a high number of cases registered annually. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 25 patients is diagnosed with an infection related to hospital care. These infections, often caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria, can lead to sepsis or even death. The CDC estimates that 75,000 patient deaths occur each year due to HAIs, resulting in increased healthcare expenditures for both facilities and individuals. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the issue of infection spread, prompting hospitals to adopt advanced infection control systems such as medical disinfection robots. Despite their cost, medical disinfection robots have proven to significantly reduce the risk of infection for hospitalized patients, driving demand and sales worldwide and contributing to the growth of the medical disinfection robots market.

UV Medical Disinfection Robots Gaining Traction

UV medical disinfection robots have gained substantial traction in recent years due to their perceived ability to efficiently kill bacteria, pathogens, and viruses. These robots are cost-effective, require minimal maintenance, and do not rely on additional chemicals for cleaning. Their attractive Return on Investment (ROI) and reduced manual cleaning burden save time for healthcare facilities. Research is also underway to evaluate the ability of UV medical disinfection robots to reduce the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in healthcare settings, further increasing the demand for these robots.

North America Leads the Way

North America is expected to lead the medical disinfection robots market, driven by technological advancements and a favorable healthcare infrastructure in the region. The United States alone records 99,000 deaths related to HAIs each year, challenging healthcare facilities in the country. In Canada, approximately 222,000 patients suffer from HAIs annually, resulting in 8,000 patient deaths, according to the Canadian Patient Safety Institute. Manufacturers are developing medical disinfection robots with advanced technologies to address these challenges. For example, Germ Falcon, a U.S.-based company, focuses on manufacturing medical disinfection robots that use UV technology to disinfect aircraft. These factors are expected to boost the medical disinfection robots market in North America in the coming years.

Competitive Landscape

As the medical disinfection robots market continues to grow, manufacturers are presented with numerous opportunities. Companies in this industry are launching innovative products to meet the increasing demand. In 2020, Indian startup Vanora Robots Pct Ltd. introduced unmanned robots designed to disinfect rooms in schools and hospitals. SESTO Robotics unveiled its SESTO Health Guard, an autonomous medical disinfection robot with dual functionality, capable of disinfecting surfaces with high precision and efficiency within 24 hours. In 2021, Ava Robotics launched UV medical disinfection robots for hospitals and other public spaces, such as offices, banks, and warehouses. UVD Robots also collaborated with Sunay Healthcare Supply in 2020 to address COVID-19 in China using their UV medical disinfection robot, reducing the risk of infection in hospitals.
