Tracking systems are gaining importance among healthcare providers due to the drive to reduce costs and increase efficiency. Ensuring better inventory and asset management practices is key to this drive. End users are focused on minimizing the loss of valuable assets and ensuring smooth workflows.
Other factors driving market growth include the FDAs Unique Device Identification mandates and the growth of the surgical instruments market. However, high system costs, long investment cycles, budgetary constraints, and technological limitations are expected to restrain market growth to a certain extent. Also, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there was a slight decrease in growth in the first quarter of 2021. With elective and non-elective surgeries postponed, delayed, or cancelled worldwide, there was a marked decrease in the use of surgical instrument tracking systems and consumables.

The Software segment accounted for the largest market share in 2020.
Based on components, the surgical instrument tracking systems market is segmented into software, hardware, and services. The software segment accounted for the largest market share in 2020. However, the hardware segment is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. This is mainly due to the repeat purchase of non-durable RFID tags/barcode labels that need replacement, as tags/labels are prone to detachment during washing and/or damage during sterilization cycles.
The Hospitals segment accounted for the largest market share in 2020.
Based on end users, the surgical instrument tracking systems market is segmented into hospitals and other end users. The hospitals segment accounted for a larger share of the surgical instrument tracking systems market in 2020. Growth in the hospitals end-user segment can be attributed to their high patient inflow compared to other end users in the market. Hospitals also use more equipment and instruments on average than other healthcare providers and conduct a greater number of surgical procedures. This has ensured a sustained demand for tracking solutions in hospitals.
