Published Date : Nov 2020 | No. of Pages : 200 Pages | Category : Healthcare

According to Vision Research Reports, the global prosthetics market size surpassed at US$ 9 Bn in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR during the forecast period 2021 to 2028.

Prosthetics refers to the science of developing prosthesis, which are artificial substitutes or replacement for a lost body part, including arm, limb, eye, facial bone and tooth. These are designed for both functional and cosmetic reasons. The global prosthetics market is driven by rise in prevalence of dental disorders, aging population, growing medical tourism for dental procedures, increase in diabetes among population leading to amputations, and surge in accident and trauma cases leading to limb loss.

The global geriatric population is expected to increase rapidly in the next few years. Decline in fertility and improved longevity are prominent factors for the aging population. Increase in the geriatric population also implies a rise in joint instability, fractures, and joint afflictions such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. Surge in joint afflictions is likely to propel the artificial limbs market during the forecast period.

An increasing number of baby boomers are vulnerable to a range of dental or oral diseases including periodontal disease, malocclusion, and tooth loss & decay. This is projected to drive the demand for dental biomaterials in the near future.

Europe dominated the global prosthetics market in 2020 and the trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. Strong growth of the market in the region can be attributed to rise in edentulous population and surge in presence of leading players focused on increasing ease of access to technologically advanced products.

Rise in Prevalence of Diabetes and Vascular Diseases Leading to Increase in Amputations

Diabetes and vascular diseases are primary causes of amputation. Increase in the number of people afflicted with these diseases drives demand for orthopedic prosthetics. The Amputee Coalition of America indicated that vascular diseases are the primary cause of lower limb amputation. According to the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC), over 8.5 million people in the U.S. are affected by peripheral vascular disease. According to the International Diabetes Federation, around 15% of individuals suffering from diabetes develop foot ulcer during their lifetime. An estimated 2.4 million people in the U.S. are at the risk of developing foot ulcer. In diabetic patients, foot ulcer, if not properly treated, can lead to amputation. A report published by the American Orthotic & Prosthetic Association stated that 60% of non-traumatic amputations in the U.S. are performed on diabetic patients. Rise in prevalence of diabetes and vascular diseases is a major factor projected to propel the global prosthetics market during the forecast period

Surge in Medical Tourism for Dental Procedures to Drive Prosthetics Market

The number of people traveling overseas for dental procedures has increased owing to the lower cost of dental procedures and superior quality services offered to patients in various medical tourism destinations. People from various countries travel to destinations such as India, Croatia, Thailand, Poland, Turkey, Bulgaria, and Spain for a range of dental procedures. The cost of dental procedure in Croatia is considered to be 50% to 70% lower than that of a similar procedure carried out in Western Europe, making it a highly desirable destination for dental tourism. Therefore, rise in medical tourism for dental procedures is a major factor boosting the global prosthetics market.

User-friendly Prosthetics Increase Accessibility for Amputees

Companies are developing user-friendly prosthetics that are improving the quality of life of amputees. They are innovating in novel control systems for 3D-printed prosthetic hand that is capable of performing intricate and natural finger motions with greater accuracy. As such, orthopedic prosthetics product segment of the prosthetics market is estimated to generate second-highest revenue by 2027.

There is a growing demand for user-friendly prosthetics that require minimal training, especially in case of elderly patients. Advantages of user-friendly prosthetics are making them widely accessible for amputees. Companies in the prosthetics market are increasing research in unique control systems using muscle synergy theory to deploy complex movements.

Demonstration of Value Proposition Involving Prosthetics Reassures Faith of Amputees

The prosthetics market is undergoing a change with the addition of AI and machine learning to develop mind-controlled prosthetics. Companies are developing prosthetic arms and limbs that are more adaptive and mimic the near-natural function of the human body parts. However, high reimbursement costs associated with these advanced prosthetics are some of the issues that companies need to address in order to sustain in the competitive prosthetics market landscape.

The prosthetics market is highly fragmented with emerging and prominent players accounting for 80% market share. Thus, it is easier for new players to enter the market, but all companies need to tackle the common problem of high costs and lack of reimbursement policies to sustain in the market. High degree of abandonment by amputees has slowed down innovations and has created a barrier for investment by insurance companies in advanced technologies.

In order to overcome barriers of high costs and inefficient reimbursement policies, companies are increasing awareness and demonstrating the value proposition of prosthetics. This is being achieved by increasing research to develop cutting-edge prosthetics.

Rapid Prototyping Opens up New Income Avenues involving Prosthodontics

The computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology is growing popular in the dental prosthetics segment. The CAD/CAM technology has given rise to rapid prototyping (RP), which has resulted in accuracy of prosthetic restorations, as compared to conventional restoration techniques.

Ongoing innovations in digital technology are revolutionizing the prosthetics market. As such, the dental prosthetics product segment of the prosthetics market is projected for exponential growth during the forecast period. Hence, manufacturers are increasing research in RP to digitize dental treatment.

RP offers promising opportunities in dental fields such as fabrication of surgical implant guides, maxillofacial prosthesis, and the likes. The CAD/CAM technology is being used by companies in the prosthetics market to reduce reliance on human variables and overcome limitations of conventional methods. In order to broaden their scope in incremental opportunities, companies are achieving fabrication of high-precision metal parts using selective laser melting technology.

High Demand for Dental Prosthetics

In terms of product, the dental prosthetics segment is likely to account for major share of the global prosthetics market. The dental prosthetics segment is projected to expand at a rapid pace due to increase in the geriatric population, advancement in dental prosthetics, and surge in incidence of dental caries and other periodontal conditions. The crowns sub-segment dominated the dental prosthetics segment in 2020. However, the dentures sub-segment is likely to expand at a high CAGR during the forecast period. Growth of the sub-segment can be attributed to rise in prevalence of teeth loss and increase in edentulous population. According to the American College of Prosthodontists, over 36 million people in the U.S. do not have teeth and over 120 million people in the country live with at least one missing tooth.

Dental Clinics to Offer Lucrative Opportunities

In terms of end user, the global prosthetics market has been divided into hospitals, specialty clinics, dental clinics, and others. The dental clinics segment held the largest market share in 2020 and the trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period. Growth of the segment can be attributed to increase in the geriatric patient pool and rise in demand for dentures. Dental clinics are preferred by patients for the treatment of various minor tooth illnesses. An increase in the number of dental clinics globally and ease of availability of specialist dentists in clinics boost the growth of the segment.
