Drivers: Need to meet FDA Unique Device Identification mandates

Manufacturers are required to track surgical instruments—from manufacturing through the distribution chain. The purpose of device tracking is to ensure that manufacturers of instruments establish tracking systems that will enable them to promptly locate devices in commercial distribution.

The UDI (Unique Device Identification) regulations proposed by the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) are expected to drive growth in the surgical instrument tracking systems market. According to the UDI rules, labellers (manufacturers, reprocessors, specification developers, re-packagers, and relabelers) of surgical instruments are expected to implement direct marking at the individual instrument level.

Restrains: High system costs, long investment cycles, and low ROIs

Surgical instrument tracking systems require heavy upfront investments that encompass the costs of application software, hardware, tags, and middleware and the cost of integrating the barcode framework along with the legacy system, maintenance services, consultancy fees, and staff training. Although the cost of tags and readers has reduced considerably, the implementation cost of automated tracking systems, such as RFID, that require additional servers, databases, and middleware, has been increasing steadily. The overall cost of implementing automated surgical instrument tracking systems using RFID is very high compared to traditional systems such as barcode-based systems. Apart from high implementation costs, most automated surgical instrument tracking systems have very long investment lifecycles.

North America was the largest regional market for surgical instrument tracking systems market in 2020.

North America is the largest regional market for surgical instrument tracking systems. The Unique Device Identification (UDI) regulations by the FDA and the need to reduce healthcare expenditures drive the surgical instrument tracking systems market in North America. However, the Asia Pacific market is estimated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, primarily due to government initiatives to implement asset tracking solutions and growing access to healthcare facilities in the region.
