Artificial organs are engineered devices that are implanted in a human body in order to replace a natural organ or perform a specific function. They are composed of the plastic that is seeded with stem cells from the transplant recipient, hence the body’s immune system does not reject the artificial organ. These devices do not require continuous tethering to a power supply or any other stationary resource and can keep patients with serious organ failure alive and functioning for years. According to IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Artificial Organs Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022”, the global artificial organs market reached a value of more than US$ 12 Billion in 2016.
Rapidly ageing global population and a subsequent increase in the number of people suffering from organ failures represent the key factors driving the artificial organs market. Frequent road accidents and injuries leading to amputations coupled with growing public awareness about advancements in the medical technology have resulted in the demand for artificial organs. On the other hand, high implantation cost and limited surgical expertise in most regions are expected to restrain the growth of the market. However, the unavailability and scarcity of organ donors at the time of requirement has encouraged the development of artificial organs technology across the globe. Owing to the aforementioned factors, the market is expected to reach a value of more than US$ 20 Billion by 2022, registering a CAGR of around 7%.
