However, high cost associated with bionic devices and opaque reimbursement coverage may negatively impact the market progression. Bionic devices are relatively novel modalities, one of the emerging technologies in the medical field with constant innovations and developments. Recent years have witnessed advancements in terms of materials, manufacturing methods, functionality and other parameters owing to significant R&D investments.

Moreover, the U.S. FDA is responsible for regulations and approval related to the medical devices. It closely monitors the development, market approval and post-approval adverse events concerned with the medical devices including bionic prosthetics. Due to wide classification and implantable nature, these devices are classified as Class I, II & III medical devices. Majority of the Class II devices and (all) Class III devices are mandated to undergo a series of examinations and technical documentation. Premarket notification (510k), premarket approval (PMA), or investigational device exemption (IDE), depending on device class are mandatory for commercial use of the product. The U.S. FDA regulates these approvals that are often quoted as tedious, stringent, time consuming, etc.

The COVID-19 pandemic arose as an unparalleled health crisis that has negatively affected the bionic devices market. The coronavirus outbreak has affected millions of individuals globally, further inflicting significant mortalities, disease burden, and financial adversities. Owing to tremendous patient influx, the healthcare system and facilities were under extreme pressure.

The COVID-19 affected patients were prioritized that led to delay in other medical procedures and affected the industry growth. This delay impacted the several elective procedures that further reduced the product adoption. Orthopedic bionic devices are extensively used post amputation surgery and helps in partially or fully restoring the movement in limbs or arms. However, the reduced number of amputation procedures during the outbreak affected the industry expansion, as device acceptance rate dropped down.

Growing incidence of chronic conditions leading to amputation to amplify the market value

Rising prevalence of chronic conditions that promote amputations is predicted to augment the need for bionic devices. Several chronic conditions such as diabetes, peripheral arterial disease, trauma, and malignant tumours among others are responsible for amputation. Patients suffering with diabetes are exposed to 30 times higher risk of undergoing an amputation and is responsible for significant economic strain on healthcare systems. Trauma is another chronic conditions that is associated with rising incidence of amputation for lower extremity. Trauma causes amputation in more than 20% patients that are affected with critical wound contamination and feature substantial soft tissue loss. Further, battle-associated explosive events promotes the incidence of amputation in 93% cases and around 2% of combat casualties lead to limb amputation.

The incidence of these chronic conditions is directly proportional to the rise in the number of amputations. Due to the high prevalence of chronic conditions, the number of amputations is constantly surging. Moreover, several clinical studies suggest that in developing economies, the adverse impact of major lower extremity amputations has surged, further increasing the market potential. This surge is mainly credited to limited resources and high prevalence of diabetes-associated foot complications.

Rising prevalence of hearing loss will spur auditory bionics segment growth

The auditory bionics/cochlear implants segment was valued at around USD 1.46 billion in 2020 led by the increasing prevalence of auditory conditions and hearing disorders causing deafness & hearing loss. With aging population, the number of individuals suffering with hearing loss is set to increase. The key drivers for rising incidence of hearing loss includes demographic transition, improved life expectancy, occupational, and recreational noise among others.

Increasing number of road accidents and high patient preference for bionic implants will boost the demand
