Global Prosthetics Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The size of the global prosthetics market is estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 6.62% from 2022 to 2027 and was worth USD 10.12 billion in 2021. This value is estimated to grow USD 10.79 billion in 2022 and USD 14.87 bn by 2027.

A prosthesis is a medical term for a device that artificially replaces a missing body component. Prostheses are typically devices that replace a missing limb or arm. Although bone, artery, and heart valve replacements are typical, prostheses also include artificial eyes and teeth. Eyeglasses and hearing aids, for example, are examples of prosthetics that increase the function of a body part. Prosthetics is the medical discipline of making artificial body parts. The location of the prosthesis, whether above or below the knee, is a crucial bifurcation. Plastic is used to make a form of below-knee prosthesis.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global prosthetics market:

The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in an upsurge in hospitalizations, which is an unprecedented public health risk. The coronavirus pandemic caused enormous illness loads, fatalities, and financial hardships worldwide. Several countries have enacted statewide lockdowns and emergencies to stem the spread of the illness. Following COVID-19, surgeons were instructed to do only the necessary procedures. This has had a significant impact on the market for prosthetics. As a result of COVID-19's considerable influence on amputation surgeries, the adoption of prosthetics has decreased to some extent over the world, further affecting market demand. This was linked to factors such as the difficulty in managing amputation cases that necessitate hospitalization, the prolonged healing period in the covid-19 circumstances, and the delay in limb procedures. However, after the COVID-19 pandemic, this influence is likely to change, increasing market growth.


The global market for prosthetics is expected to be driven by an increase in sports injuries and road accidents and the prevalence of osteosarcoma around the world.

The rising number of diabetic patients among youngsters and the elderly is a significant growth factor for the global prosthetics market. Because of the rise in amputation surgeries around the world and lower operational costs, the prosthetics market will develop rapidly. Many regulatory authorities and non-governmental organizations responded to the shifting situation during the epidemic. Researchers are experimenting with novel materials such as a graphite-polyurethane composite with graphene on top. These materials function as electric supercapacitors, storing energy and meeting end-user energy conservation needs. Similarly, the graphene component functions as a solar panel, converting sunlight into power to charge the supercapacitor. As a result, companies in the prosthetics market should implement such advancements to make their products more environmentally friendly. Robotic prosthetics, also known as microprocessor-controlled prosthetics, are a new market trend that can be used across the market due to robotics research combined with the latest medical technology.

Prosthetics are becoming more popular as a result of technological improvements.

Researchers at the University of Utah are working on a prosthetic limb with a sense of touch as part of a technological leap. Growing technological advancements allow the global prosthetics market to expand. The growing demand for custom-made orthopedic prosthetics and the widespread availability of technically advanced prosthetics continue to grow profitable opportunities for the prosthetics market in the future years. The use of additive manufacturing/3D printing for prostheses has been gaining traction in the market, particularly among amputees who cannot afford the high cost of traditional limb prosthetics. Prosthetics for the upper limb have become increasingly common in hospitals, with adoption rates gradually increasing. Several significant competitors in the competitive prosthetics market are prioritizing new product introductions to capitalize on opportunities in lower price ranges.


The rising expense of prosthetics can operate as a market restraint, particularly in underdeveloped countries. However, the high cost of prosthetics and advancements in vascular surgery would limit the prosthetics market's growth in the next few years. Furthermore, the development of the global prosthetics market is further estimated to be hampered by the lack of awareness and the lack of reimbursement schemes.

This research report on the global prosthetics market has been segmented and sub-segmented based on product type, technology, end-user & region.

Prosthetics Market – By Product Type:

  • Upper Extremity Prosthetics
    • Hand Prosthetics
    • Elbow Prosthetics
    • Shoulder Prosthetics
  • Lower Extremity Prosthetics
    • Foot & Ankle Prosthetics
    • Knee Prosthetics
    • Hip Prosthetics
  • Liners
  • Sockets

Because of the rising frequency of joint problems in both developed and developing nations, the prosthetic hand segment accounts for most prosthetics market share. Other factors driving market expansion include an increase in demand for prosthetic arm devices, an increase in the frequency of accidents, and an increase in the geriatric population.

Prosthetics Market – By Technology:

  • Body Powered
  • Electrically Powered
  • Hybrid Prosthetics

To control the limb, a body-powered prosthesis uses a system of cables or harnesses. Other areas of your body, such as your shoulders, elbows, and chest, are used to manipulate the prosthetic arm. Many patients find it a practical choice because it is cheaper, serves as a wonderful supplementary device, and is appropriate for more rugged conditions.

Prosthetics Market – By End-User:

  • Prosthetic Clinics
  • Hospitals
  • Rehabilitation Centers

In 2021, the prosthetic clinics segment accounted for the majority share of the global prosthetics market. The availability of modern prosthetic technologies and the presence of trained personnel in these healthcare institutions promote their preference, which accounts for the majority of the market share.

Prosthetics Market – By Region:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia-Pacific
  • Latin America
  • Middle East and Africa

Over the forecast period, the Asia Pacific market is the fastest-growing regional market in the global prosthetics market. A surge in the incidence of road accidents, rising cases of diabetes-related amputations, and supportive government activities are driving the regional market.

Because of rising government and private investments in healthcare infrastructure and an increase in medical tourism, North America will dominate the prosthetics market in the future. Furthermore, the growing awareness of technology in healthcare would propel the prosthetics market to greater levels throughout the research period. Moreover, the market is predicted to rise due to the rising prevalence of osteosarcoma and sports injuries. In addition, the emphasis on quality of care and value-based services in the U.S. healthcare system has created a favorable market for prosthetics.

Because of its growing population, Germany dominates the European prosthetics market. Furthermore, during the projected period, the increase in awareness will aid the expansion of the prosthetics market in the region.
