A growing number of patients are undergoing knee replacements, according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. The rate has risen by 120 percent over a 10-year period and the number of hip replacement cases has also doubled over the same period.

The newest and fastest-growing portion of the market is the ENT surgical navigation segment. These systems are used for performing procedures on optic nerves, blood vessels, eyes and the nasal region.

The systems are becoming a popular option for ENT procedures at ASCs. In 2015, 92 percent of the ear and 87 percent of the nasal surgeries were performed in ASCs, according to the report.

The top vendors in the market are GE Healthcare, Medtronic, Stryker, Brainlab and B. Braun Melsungen.
