The market is mainly driven by increasing pool of geriatric population and associated organ failures, rising number of accidents and injuries leading to amputations, and increasing number of people opting for organ transplants.

Due to an increase in the number of product approvals for artificial vital organs and medical bionics, the market for medical bionics devices will witness an increase in the rate of artificial organ transplantation and patient rehabilitation. For instance, in June 2017, Medtronic plc introduced its hybrid closed-loop system, the world’s first artificial pancreas, in the U.S. medical bionics market for commercial use.

The system is the only United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) approved insulin pump that automatically delivers basal insulin to control blood glucose levels in people with Type 1 diabetes. The demand for rehabilitation tools is very high as societies around the world are aging and companies in the U.S., Europe, and Japan are developing bionic suits that help the elderly to take care of themselves.

In order to conduct an implant surgery, special expertise is required, as surgeries like placing an artificial limb involves the transfer of a selection of nerves and muscles, the amputation of the non-functioning hand and the connection of the prosthesis. Moreover, all surgeries require utmost care and expertise in order to avoid any kind of mishap with the patient and this further restrains the growth of the medical bionics market.
