Global Surgical Drill Market is projected to reach USD 3,564.8 million by 2028, at a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period (2018-2028). The report covers market size and growth prospects for the global surgical drill market across different regions such as North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.

A surgical drill is a device used to create holes in the hard tissues of living organisms. They were originally developed as an alternative to hand-drilling, which was perceived as requiring much physical strength and produced imprecise results.

A surgical drill is a hand-held instrument used in surgery for cutting through bone. There are different types of drills, including pneumatic drills, electric and battery-powered ones. They may be targeted at orthopedic surgeries (bones) or neurosurgery (brain), ENT (ears nose throat), dental procedures, etc.

On the basis of type, the global surgical drill market is segmented into pneumatic drills, electric drills, battery-powered drills, and other types of surgical drills.

Pneumatic Drills

Pneumatic surgical drills are designed for drilling holes in the bone. They are powered by compressed air, and the speed of rotation is regulated using a trigger or foot pedal. Pneumatic Drills operate with less noise than electric models as they use compressed gas instead of electricity to power their motor. The tradeoff is that these drills require an external source of compressed air, which may not be available in places without adequate infrastructure.

Pneumatic surgical drills are used in orthopedic surgery to drill pilot holes for screws and pins. They can also be used on the skull during neurosurgery, or when perforating nasal septomaxillofacial cavities with ENT procedures. The devices could potentially have other applications as well, such as drilling of teeth by dentists or hole-drilling during maxillofacial reconstruction.

Electric Drills

Electric surgical drills are a type of drill used in surgery and other medical procedures. They use electric motors powered by batteries or electricity to rotate small metal burrs (bits) at high speeds, which can then be applied to soft tissue during minimally invasive surgeries such as brain tumor removal. Electric drills are also used in dentistry, ENT (ear-nose-throat) surgery as well as orthopedic procedures. Electric drill bits are available in various shapes that target specific tissues such as bone or soft tissue; they may have a cutting edge on one side while the other side has an abrasive surface to remove material from hard surfaces like cartilage.

Battery-Powered Drills

The battery-powered surgical drills are essential equipment for neurosurgeons to treat patients with brain tumors. These devices have been extensively used in some other medical fields such as ENT and orthopedics, where the surgeons need to drill through bones or cartilage. The primary advantage of these tools is that they provide high torque output at all times so that they can be easily operated by one hand, which improves their consistency while surgery.

On the basis of application, the global surgical drill market is segmented into Orthopedic, Neurosurgery, ENT, Dental, and Others.


The application for Orthopedic is in the drilling of bones, e.g., cutting a hole through bone to place a fixation device such as K-wire or plate; and scraping off bone margin after osteotomy surgery like vertebrae resection, laminectomy, or hemilaminectomy.

The application for Orthopedic includes hip and knee replacements. The surgical drills are used to make a hole through the bone so that screws can be inserted into the joint in order to hold it together while healing takes place. Without these instruments, joints could not be repaired because of the delicate nature of human tissue. This is an important and common application of the surgical drill.


The primary application for neurosurgery is to surgically remove a brain tumor or cyst. These are typically performed by opening the skull and removing these tissues through an incision in the back of the head. The brain tumor or cyst is then removed with the drill.


The application for ENT includes ear, nose, and throat surgeries. The use of these instruments is necessary to make a hole through which air can be passed in order to keep open the natural passages on one side while performing surgery on another side. These drills help people who have had serious problems with their ears or noses such as cancerous growths, and for those who have had deformities from birth. The surgical drills are also used to repair the eardrum. These surgeries can be quite complicated but with these tools, it is possible to find a solution that will make life easier for people without complications later on.


Surgical drills are used for cutting and shaping the tooth. A drill may be used in conjunction with other instruments as a dental handpiece to remove decay, or it can cut out teeth entirely. Surgical drills have largely been replaced by lasers which provide more precise cuts than do drills while avoiding heat damage to the surrounding tissue.

On the basis of region, the global surgical drill market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.

In terms of region, the North American Surgical Drill Market is expected to account for a major share in 2028 due to high adoption rates among dentists and physicians as well increasing demand from orthopedic surgeons which will result in an increase in surgeries with surgical drills being used.

In the Asia Pacific, China and India are two of the fastest-growing countries in this region. The increase in demand for these drills can be attributed to a rise in population as well as an increased number of surgeries being performed in these areas. This will lead to significant growth in the Asia Pacific Surgical Drill Market over the forecast period.

The Latin American Surgical Drill Market is expected to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to its high population base coupled with rising awareness of dental implants and increasing disposable income as well as an increase in surgeries requiring surgical drills which will result in higher demand for surgical drill globally.

In terms of region, the Middle East & Africa Surgical Drill Market is expected to grow at a moderate pace due to fewer surgeries as compared with other regions coupled with low awareness about surgical drills among users.

Growth Factors

The growth of this market can be attributed to the increasing need for surgeries, which coupled with an increase in training surgeons on drills and related equipment will lead to more demand. This is also supported by the rise in awareness among patients about surgical procedures. Rising healthcare expenditure globally has led to a surge in medical tourism as well. The booming orthopedic, neurosurgery, and dental segments will also create opportunities for market growth in the near future.
