Market Overview

The bionics market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.5%, over the forecast period. Factors that are responsible for the growth of the market include increased incidence of disabilities and organ failures, technological advancements, and high incidence of road accidents leading to amputations. Another primary factor is the scarcity of donor organs. The lack of availability of potential organs to transplant has been a major issue. The demand for organ donors is increasing and is very high compared to the actual supply. Bionics are able to cater to the needs of those in need of organ transplantations and replacements. It can replicate the function of damaged organs. The replication is almost the same. This level of scarcity of organs has turned into a boon for artificial organs and the bionics industry

However, the factors, such as the fear of device malfunction and its consequences, among others, may impact market growth.

Scope of the Report

Bionics are man-made devices that can be implanted or integrated into humans, to either replace a natural organ or provide support to restore specific function, or a group of related functions, helping the patient to return to his normal life.

Key Market Trends

Implantable Bionics are Estimated to Hold a Major Share in the Fixation Type Segment of the Bionics Market

  • Implantable bionics held a larger share in the bionics market, in 2019, and it is expected to continue this trend during the forecast period. This larger market share of implantable bionics is due to the increasing number of organ-failure patient base, as well as the increasing number of patients who are opting for organ transplants across the world.
  • According to the US Government Information on Organ Donation and Transplantation, in 2019, there were 19,267 donors, 39,718 transplants, and 112,568 waiting list in the US. Thus, the growing transplant waiting list cases are likely to boost the market growth.
  • Furthermore, market players are focussing on advancements in the implantable bionics which is likely to propel the market growth. For instance, In January 2020, Bionic Vision Technologies announced the interim results of a pilot study involving four patients with late-stage Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) implanted with a visual prosthesis designed to improve awareness of external objects and patient surroundings, the results reported were the most significant improvement in this cohort was observed with the Primary Obstacle Avoidance Task, which relies on participants identifying obstacles in their pathway.

North America Dominates the Market and is Expected to Do Same during the Forecast Period

  • Currently, North America dominates the market for bionics and is expected to continue its stronghold for a few more years. In the North American region, the United States holds the largest market share. The rising prevalence of chronic diseases and increasing demand for non-invasive surgical procedures are helping in the dominance of the North American region in the bionics market.
  • The presence of developed healthcare infrastructure and major market players focussing on various market strategies so as to gain a competitive edge is also expected to propel the market. In July 2019, Advanced Bionics launched a new AIM system (active insertion monitoring) a computer program designed to help surgeons and hearing care professionals with the insertion of the electrode for a cochlear implant. The software provides real-time feedback to the surgeon to guide the insertion placement.
