Upper Limb Prosthetics Market By Restorative Material Type (Mechanical (Body Powered) Prosthetics, Myoelectric (Externally Powered) Prosthetics, Hybrid Prosthetics), By End-user Segment (Hospitals, Orthopedic Clinics, Rehabilitation Centers) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

The upper limb prosthetics market is expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period.

The global market for upper limb prosthetics was valued at US$ 214.8 million in 2017 and is expected to reach US$ 322.6 million by 2026. The prevalence of disabilities and injuries, as well as the prevalence of bone disorders and infection, drive the overall growth of the upper limb prosthetics market.

Technological evolution in the bionic industry would also drive the overall market. Manufacturers are expanding the use of higher technology assessments for top applications around the world, such as osteoarthritis, bone injuries, osteoporosis, and other post-surgery applications. The global market is gaining traction as the population ages, as well as a growing preference for soft body-powered or myoelectric limbs and custom-made prosthetics.

Market Synopsis

Myoelectric and bionic prosthetics are expected to register higher growth by the end of 2026.

Global sales of upper limb prosthetics are increasing significantly, primarily in the Asia-Pacific region. The prosthetics market is fuelled by increasing private funding from Europe and the U.S. in domestic markets. Numerous upper-limb prosthetics, mainly in the myoelectric prosthetics segment, will grow significantly.

New technology evaluations in the bionics industry will gradually increase global demand. Automation of orthopedic prosthetics will drive demand primarily in Europe and Asia-Pacific. The revenue share from these regions can be attributed to the rising population, the expanding commonness of chronic diseases, and bone-related disorders.

The orthopedic clinic segment is expected to register higher growth by the end of 2026.

Development in the orthopedic clinics' segment is expected to grow consistently. Higher preference for soft orthopedic prosthetic limbs post-surgery, a shift towards the use of advanced custom-made systems, and growing demand for advanced research in the bionics industry are generating maximum revenue share in the developed markets.

Outsourcing of advanced products in developing nations, strict regulations, and the high cost of limbs in developing markets may hinder the market's development to a certain extent during the forecast period. Additionally, increasing admissions of osteoporosis patients in hospitals and the commonness of Paget's disease of the bones, hyperparathyroidism, rickets, and osteomalacia will further spur revenue growth during the forecast period.

Growing demand for advanced products and the presence of established players hold the U.S. in a dominant position.

the U.S. to contribute the maximum market share in the global upper limb prosthetics market. Major factors enhancing the growth in North America and Europe include the widespread availability of advanced prosthetics along with the presence of top manufacturers, higher adoption of customized products, an increasing number of partnerships with small-scale component manufacturers, and expanding demand for advanced limbs in the end-user segment.

The increasing rate of cancer, trauma cases (road accidents), bone infection or disease, and genetic disorders worldwide, especially in the elderly population (50 years and older), is a major factor enhancing the growth of the market. However, orthopedic prosthetics are in short supply in developing regions such as Asia Pacific, MEA, and Latin America. Inaccessibility of high-end limbs, high cost, and supply in remote regions are a few factors limiting the growth of the upper limb prosthetics market.
