Abstract—The robot industry is a key field of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Among them, the interest in medical robotics is increasing due to aging and changes in living patterns. In the medical robotics market, a small number of companies dominate the market, causing problems such as increased costs. To prevent such problems, various companies need to enter the market. In order for new entrants to secure technology efficiently, technology commercialization such as technology transfer is necessary. However, in the field of medical robotics, few companies have major skills and perform most of the technology transfer. In this paper, we propose a model for providing technology commercialization information to new entrants. The experimental data uses patents related to vascular surgery robots registered in the USPTO. As a result of the experiment, high applicants have advanced into various countries in order to secure market power, and have a technique for analyzing the internal image of the body mainly through endoscopy.
