Artificial Organs: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 04, 2012
Follow us on LinkedIn – With decades of research and advancements in technology, artificial organs have become the viable alternative to effectively address donor organ shortage problem. Artificial organs have been radically changing the facet of medical technology industry. Besides sustaining life and minimizing disease burden, artificial organs have been playing a crucial role in enhancing patient’s quality of life. Additionally, artificial organs are not only enhancing patient outcomes and accelerating recovery times, but also minimizing the overall healthcare expenditure. In addition to the external artificial assist devices, miniature size advanced implantable devices are also being developed. However, only few implantable devices have been approved for clinical use, while several other devices are still in clinical trials, awaiting approvals. Nevertheless, it is opined that with the developments in artificial organs, all human organs would eventually be replaced by their artificial counterparts for permanent implantation to assist organ failure patients.
The market for artificial organs, in the ensuing years, is expected to witness robust growth, primarily due to the ever increasing number of patients on the waiting lists for organ transplants. Further, the emerging artificial organs market is on the cusp of significant transformation, with the development of new advanced technologies that would play an influential role in future market growth. While only few products are presently approved by the FDA, other artificial organs are in developmental stage or under clinical trials. With commercialization of these life-saving, life-sustaining products for bridge as well as destination therapy, stupendous growth is likely to be witnessed by the artificial organs market.
Global market for artificial organs is led by Artificial Kidneys, as stated by the new market research report on Artificial Organs. In developed regions, such as the US and Europe, poor lifestyle continues to be a major factor leading to renal failure, which makes an increasing number of people dependent on dialyzers at some point of time. Growth in the artificial organs market, would, however be spearheaded by Artificial Liver. Sales in the segment are projected to clock the fastest growth over the analysis period. Major strides in the field of bioengineering and technological advances are expected to develop implantable Artificial Pancreas in the coming years. Further, public and private collaborations are fuelling advancement towards artificial pancreas development. With over 100 million people across the world suffering from diabetes mellitus, artificial pancreas is expected to witness lucrative growth prospects. Artificial lungs market worldwide is projected to post a CAGR of 7.81% during the analysis period.
Bioartificial organs are increasingly gaining prominence. After several decades of research, researchers are developing artificial organs by employing human or porcine cells. These cells, enclosed in a capsule, perform the functions of original human organs. Researchers are developing several bioartificial organs, including bioartificial kidney, liver, pancreas, and lungs. The bioartificial organs are intended to be used in patients suffering from organ failures as bridge to transplantation or long-term replacement devices. With increasing gulf between the donor organs and number of people requiring them, there lies a large potential market for bioartificial organs.
