Combination Electronic Skin to Store Energy in Electrically Powered Prosthetics

The adoption of electrically powered/myoelectric technology is predicted to grow at an aggressive rate during the forecast period. Hence, companies are increasing R&D in electrically powered technology to meet specific requirements of individuals.

Since powered prosthetic devices require a great deal of electricity to function efficiently, researchers are developing innovative skin that stores electricity. For instance, researchers at the University of Glasgow have developed a combination electronic skin to generate and store electricity for prosthetic devices. Thus, manufacturers in the prosthetics market should collaborate with researchers to gain expertise in electrically powered prosthetics.

Researchers are experimenting with innovative materials such as graphite-polyurethane composite covered by graphene. These materials act as electric supercapacitors capable of storing energy and cater to energy conservation needs of end users. Likewise, the graphene component acts as a solar panel that converts sunlight to electricity in order to charge the supercapacitor. Thus, companies in the prosthetics market landscape should adopt such innovations to make their products eco-friendly.

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.

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.

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.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Researchers are introducing virtual reality programs to help prosthetic limbs feel more connected to the body of amputees. Asia Pacific is projected for exponential growth during the forecast period of the prosthetics market. This is evident as stakeholders in the Indian prosthetics startup, Social Hardware, are aiming to develop prosthetics for low-income rural amputees.

Moreover, the myoelectric prosthetic technology dominates the prosthetics market landscape. However, in order to use these types of prosthetics, amputees need to undergo a lot of training, which is undesirable in individuals. Hence, manufacturers should increase the availability of adaptable 3D-printed prosthetics to overcome the limitations of the myoelectric prosthetic technology.

Prosthetics Market: Overview

The global prosthetics market was valued at ~US$ 8.9 Bn in 2018 and is projected to expand at a high CAGR from 2019 to 2027. The global market is driven by rise in prevalence of dental disorders, aging population, growing medical tourism for dental procedures, increase in incidence of diabetes among the population leading to amputations, and surge in accident and trauma cases leading to limb loss.

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 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.

Prosthetics Market: Segmentation

The global prosthetics market has been segmented based on product, end user, technology, and region

In terms of product, the global prosthetics market has been categorized into orthopedic prosthetics, dental prosthetics, and others. Orthopedic prosthetics have been classified into upper extremity, lower extremity, liners, sockets, and others. Dental prosthetics have been split into crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays & onlays, and dentures.

Based on end user, the global prosthetics market has been divided into hospitals, specialty clinics, dental clinics, and others. The dental clinics segment dominated the market in 2018 and the trend is anticipated to continue during the forecast period, owing to rise in prevalence of dental problems among the people and increase in preference for dental clinics for prosthetic procedures.
