Medical Simulation Market Overview and Introduction
The global medical simulation market is estimated to be over US$ 1,400 Mn in 2018. It is anticipated to grow at a double digit CAGR from 2019 to 2030.
Medical simulation is now widely used in education and training in a variety of high risk professions and disciplines, including the military, commercial airlines, nuclear power plants, business and medicine. Simulation based medical education can be defined as any educational activity that utilizes simulative aides to replicate clinical scenarios. A device that facilitates the learner to replicate and perform under experimental conditions that are likely to occur while interacting with the actual patient is called as simulator. Medical simulation plays an important role to reduce risks to patients and learners, helps to improve capability and self-confidence of learners and, reduces medical costs in the future.
The consistent development of the medical simulation market can be attributed to a few factors which have prompted wide scale response of these items which are broadly utilized for expanding center around patient safety. The growth in innovation and technology plays an important role in contributing to the growth of the global medical simulation market. Medical based simulation is a crucial educational training tool, to improve patient’s safety. Simulation offers ethical benefits, medical precision, relevance of training, and competency assessment. It suggests some new methods of coaching error management and safety culture. However, the high cost of the medical simulator is likely to restrain the growth of medical simulation market.
