Surgical Instrument Tracking Systems Market

Latest scanning technologies and application software for managing inventory are combined in surgical instrument tracking systems.

Users are provided with a solution to maintain the quality, compliance, and traceability of their instruments in workplace. Starting in 2014, different classes of medical devices are included in UDI program to provide more accurate tracking of medical devices. Moreover, EU acted to adopt UDI in 2017, under the EU MDR.

The Global Surgical Instrument Tracking Systems Market is expected to reach US$ 400 Million by 2026, growing at a healthy growth rate of 15% in the next 5 years. The implementation of Unique Device Identification (UDI) regulations formed by the FDA and increased demand for Inventory and Asset Management during the work cycle are projected to be the main drivers of global surgical instrument tracking systems market expansion.

Advancements in Software/Hardware Usage Drives the Surgical Instrument Tracking Systems Market Growth

Software is an essential component of surgical instrument tracking systems due to adoption of latest information technology systems and inventory management systems in the hospitals. However, due to repeated purchase of disposable RFID tags/barcode labels that require replacement, the hardware segment is anticipated to see the largest growth throughout the forecast period.

Shifts Towards RFID Technology Over Traditional Barcode Methods

Currently hospitals are using barcode method due to its low installation cost. In contrast, RFID is a highly flexible technology that has several benefits over barcodes, including the fact that they may be read as well as written and do not require line of sight. However, there are significant limitations to both RFID and barcode technology.
