IDTechEx research has determined that the robotic surgery market will exceed $12 billion by 2030. It is very different today than it was five years ago as it is no longer the single company market it once was. The field is rapidly growing, as new companies are constantly joining the race. Each new entrant is fuelling the diversification of this technology into previously unexplored territories, and the field is becoming increasingly broad and complex. Competition in the robotic surgery market has never been more fierce as each company seeks to disrupt the reign of the current market leader. The range of capabilities and applications of surgical robots has expanded dramatically in the last decade and, with the range of benefits that they offer, it is only a matter of time before they become widely implemented into operating rooms.

COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by SARS-CoV-2. The outbreak of COVID-19 started in Dec. 2019 with the first case reported in China. The World Health Organization (WHO) recognised the outbreak of COVID-19 as a pandemic on 11 March 2020. By April 2020, there are over 2 million confirmed cases and have brought the economies of many countries to a halt. Dr Luyun Jiang, Senior Technology Analyst at IDTechEx, will discuss the technology innovations and trends regarding COVID-19 diagnostics and more broadly, infectious disease diagnostics. The highlights are: the key considerations for COVID-19 diagnostics: sensitivity, specificity, sample-to-answer time and more; the rise of point-of-care devices; isothermal amplification as the key technology behind fast test; innovations around the detection methods, moving from the fluorescent measurement to other possibilities, such as CRISPR-cas based, DNA sequencing based, lateral flow assays, etc.; and market landscape after COVID-19.

Biostimulants have become a fast-growing industry as the world looks for sustainable ways to boost crop yields and improve food security. Biostimulants are biologically derived substances that can be applied to crops to boost their ability to take up nutrients and fight off disease, helping to boost yields while also reducing the need for chemical fertilizers. Although biostimulants have the potential to make a huge impact on global agriculture, the industry is still young, with patchwork regulations and a highly fragmented market often making it difficult to navigate the space. This webinar introduces biostimulants and discusses the regulatory and market factors that could be key to the success of this fledgling industry. The webinar includes: an introduction to agricultural biologicals and biostimulants; an overview of the biostimulants industry; a discussion of the global regulatory landscape for biostimulants and its implications for the industry; and an analysis of the industry outlook for the next ten years of biostimulants.
