Furthermore, the governments of several countries laid instructions for the postponement or cancellation of the non-essential surgeries to preserve the healthcare resources for the treatment of COVID-19 patients. This factor resulted in a huge decline in non-emergency procedures worldwide, which further limited the adoption of surgical drill during the 2019-2020 period.
Moreover, several research organizations & players suspended their research projects related to introducing a new and technologically advanced portfolio of surgical drill due to the imposition of lockdown in major countries. Whereas the recent outbreak of new covid-19 strain in countries like the U.K., India, and others is expected to further continue the trend of postponement of surgeries and increase the burden on the healthcare system of the affected countries.

The quality of surgical instruments is heavily relied upon by surgeons to perform procedures to the highest standard. However, the surgeons usually directly use the newly purchased surgical power tools, without undergoing sterilization procedures which results in harmful consequences.
Moreover, failure to properly disinfect or sterilize drills results in transmission of infectious pathogens to the patients. For instance, according to a survey conducted among the dental surgeons in the U.K., 68% of respondents believed they were sterilizing their instruments but did not use appropriate chemical sterilants or exposure times, and 49% of respondents did not challenge autoclaves with biological indicators.
In addition, emergence of advanced minimally invasive surgeries for spine and bone grafting along with comparatively higher cost of powered instruments and lack of reimbursement policies in emerging countries is limiting the adoption of surgical drills and are expected to further hamper the growth of the market during the forecast period.
