According to the current analysis of Reports and Data, the Global Myoelectric Prosthetics market was valued at USD 165.87 million in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 656.99 million by year 2026, at a CAGR of 18.7%. The market for prosthetics is growing out of critical customer needs. Although relatively uncommon a few years ago and still very costly in many parts of the world, this is an industry that has grown from its nascent to the advanced stages very rapidly. Myoelectric prosthetics as a market can be divided into several segments and sub-segments. It also incorporates new age technology for the function of prosthetics. Many of these technologies are still relatively new, especially finite state machine control and pattern recognition technology, and further research is required in the field to streamline glitches due to improper handling. The product range is also very wide, and so is the scope and need for specializations. Significant progress made in the fields of signal processing, sensory substitution and pattern recognition for myoelectric prostheses has allowed for improvements in the performance of myoelectric control.

The machines currently used by amputees can be difficult to control. Machine learning, and in particular learned predictions about user intent, could help to reduce the time and cognitive load required by amputees while operating their prosthetic device. Adaptive control using real-time prediction learning has the potential to help decrease both the time and the cognitive load required by amputees in real-world functional situations when using these devices.

Myoelectric control of limbs, serving to replace amputated parts with prostheses, involves a lot of issues that must be solved. It starts from the detection of electrical activity of muscles on the stump, which though does not develop a useful muscular exertion, can be used to control at will some predefined motions of artificial hand. An essential problem to be solved in this approach is the acquisition of the most useful controlling biosignals for the prosthesis, but the more important issue is to extract the control information from the raw myosignals. In order to detect the patient’s intention and use the information achieved for controlling different elements of the prosthesis there are several ways, among which the most important are direct acquisition of motor nerve signals and acquisition of electrical signals produced by muscles during their contraction (myoelectric signals). These options require the use of electrodes that can be implanted, in the case of nerve signals, and intramuscular or on surface, in case of myoelectric signals. One of the most used methods for intelligent prosthesis control is based on surface myoelectric signals picked up from the remaining muscles of the amputated arm.

The myoelectric prosthetics market is driven by an array of different factors. Increasing cases of diabetes and associated illnesses leading to Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI), growing cases of accidents leading to limb amputation in developing nations, development of 3D technologies for myoelectric prosthetics, higher income and more awareness in developed nations leading to greater product acceptance are the chief industry drivers of the myoelectric prosthetics market. With respect to technological advancements, targeted Muscle Re-innervation (TMR) is a particularly new development in this field, leading to future innovations and industry growth. This technique is gaining increasing acceptance and popularity in the upper limb prosthetics field and works on relaying the user’s non-verbal commands (movement of body parts) to the prosthetic attachment to activate it and get the work done.

North American region is anticipated to dominate the global myoelectric prosthetics market throughout the forecast period due to advanced technology adoption in healthcare settings. Furthermore, the increased focus on the sports and athletics in this region also supplements the myoelectric prosthetics market growth. Athletes who have met with an unfortunate accident and are more inclined towards going back to their sports are also users of myoelectric prosthetics as they are more convenient than conventional prosthetics. Various industry leaders are investing in this technology. For example, Ottobock SA, a German prosthetics company through its product portfolio offers a myoelectric prosthetic hand, ‘Griefer’, which is designed to perform gripping applications, and it also excels at manual labor and other tasks.
