Artificial Limbs Market to Grow 1.4X by the End of 2025

The growth trajectory of the artificial limbs market has been forged with advancements in the field of new technologies and prosthetic materials that are more adaptable and have greater suitability.

Materials such as urethanes and silicone are more flexible and lightweight, and have a remarkable quality known as 'memory', which allows them to respond to varying degrees of pressure.

As healthcare expenditures mount, key companies are aggressively deploying research & development tools in the field of Artificial Intelligence and bionics.

Similarly, governments in developing regions are launching reimbursement schemes to cover a small portion of the cost of a prosthetic limb fitted onto an amputee.

This creates a favourable environment for companies to venture into highly lucrative markets, which until recently, have been largely untapped.

The aforementioned factors are expected to augment the growth of the artificial limbs market, which is set to witness a healthy growth of 6% over the forecast period (2020 - 2025).

Artificial Limbs Market a Consolidated Space, Innovations and Acquisitions Intensify Competition

The artificial limbs market is highly consolidated, with a handful of market players making major inroads through extensive R&D activities and a well-established supply chain.

Exorbitant costs attributable to top-of-the-line products is attracting a small number of players and intensifying the competition.

Ossur, Ottobock, Hanger, Proteor, and Spinal Technology Inc. are some of the leading players in the market.

A vast clinical service network, an ever-expanding geographical presence, enhanced product portfolio, and strategically-timed acquisitions are some of the strategies of leading stakeholders in the artificial limbs market. For instance

  • In 2019, Ossur signed an agreement with College Park Industries, a global provider of upper and lower limb prosthesis. With this acquisition, Ossur hopes to strengthen its presence in the upper limb arena. Together, both companies will be well positioned to enhance their offerings.
  • Ottobock has added value for its users through innovative product launches, such as the microprocessor-controlled knee joint – 'C-Leg'. Ottobock is also investing in digital transformation using artificial intelligence for technical orthopaedics at all its locations.

North America Artificial Limbs Market Surging Ahead, Asia Pacific to Emerge as Lucrative Pocket

In terms of revenue, North America will outpace other regions, accounting for 34% of the market share by 2025. According to the Centre for Disease Control (CDC), as of 2016, over 8.5 Mn people in the U.S. were afflicted by peripheral vascular diseases, while 9.4% of the country’s population suffered from diabetes.

This rise in disease prevalence is inadvertently leading to a large number of amputation cases, in turn, fuelling market growth.

Asia Pacific is also projected to benefit from the changing reimbursement scenario and a large pool of amputees, and would reach US$ 630 Mn by the end of 2025.

Since MEA and Latin America are smaller markets, their growth will remain stable in the medium and long term.
