Artificial organs, as the name suggests, are unnatural devices or machines that replace various human organs, which suffer from malfunctioning or the loss of entire functioning ability. Usually formed from the respective human’s stem cells and later grown in laboratories, artificial organs have been changing the face of the medical world since the past few decades. However, innovation and developments of new artificial organs are still progressing, offering an optimistic growth prospects to the global artificial organs market in the near future.
Persistence Market Research has analyzed the historic, current, and futuristic growth conditions of the global artificial organs market. Our recently published report provides in-depth assessment of the market for a six-year forecast period, 2016 - 2026.
Global Artificial Organs Market: Drivers and Restraints
The ability of artificial organs to retain normal functioning of human organs, either temporarily or permanently, will continue to be the strongest factor driving the demand for artificial organs across the globe. Increasing prevalence of chronic disorders that affect one or multiple vital organs, is expected to be another key factor supporting the market growth. Growing incidences of accidents and severe injuries will also continue to fuel the demand for artificial organs. Technological advancements and rising acceptance of organ transplant technology worldwide, will collectively boost the market further. Besides growing geriatric population and rising life expectancy, increasing healthcare awareness among population will remain an important driver to the growth of artificial organs market.
However, certain prosthetic devices, including brain pacemaker, can hardly be repaired or restored by artificial organs. Unaffordable costs of artificial organs and the entire organ implant procedure may remain longstanding restraints to rapid market growth. Several developing regions are still facing a challenge due to uncertain reimbursement policies, which is expected to restrict the market penetration in near future. Moreover, relatively lower awareness about artificial organs and organ transplant, in addition to limited knowledge about the associated surgical procedures will also impede the growth of artificial organs market. Furthermore, maintaining efficiency and quality of artificial organs in the long run is a major challenge for the existing medical sector. This will continue to deter the market growth over the next few years as well.
