Increasing development of new materials is expected to drive growth of the prosthetic liners market

Development of novel materials used in prosthetic liners such as thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), polyurethane, copolymer, silicone, and medical grade mineral oil gel materials is expected to boost growth of the market. Prosthetic liners made from these materials are aimed at reducing friction-related injuries, and patient comfort. For instance, Iceross liners, developed by Össur, are recommended for low to high activity levels in users, where good stability and suspension is required.

Moreover, growing awareness about the benefits of prosthetic liners among the populace has led to increase in demand for prosthetic liners. For instance, according to the study published National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) 2016, 94% of the people in North America are aware about prosthetic liners and their benefits from various sources such as company websites, company representatives, physicians, and clinical research magazines.

Furthermore, increasing incidence of diabetes has led to high number of limb amputations is fueling growth of the prosthetic liners market. For instance, according to the U.S. National Diabetes Statistics Report, 2017, 23.1 million people or 7.2% of the U.S. population were diagnosed with diabetes.

Prosthetic Liners Market - Restraints

Mechanical testing required during manufacturing of prosthetic liners is a challenging part for manufacturers. Moreover, stringent government standards for product approvals, and regulation guidelines for product pricing is a major factor restraining growth of the market.

Prosthetic Liners Market - Regional Insights

On the basis of region, the global prosthetic liners market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.

North America is expected to dominate the global prosthetic liners market during the forecast period owing to high presence of key players in the region, such as College Park Industries, WillowWood Global LLC, and Silipos. These players are focused on adopting inorganic growth strategies to gain a significant market share. For instance, in August 2017, WillowWood Global LLC. and Coapt, LLC announced partnership for the development of a new liner for more advanced and comfortable use of upper extremity prostheses

Europe is expected to emerge as a lucrative market for prosthetic liners, and is expected to gain momentum over the forecast period owing to direct presence of major players in the region.

Prosthetic Liners Market - Competitive Landscape

Major players operating in the global prosthetic liners market include Ottobock SE & Co. KGaA, Össur HF, WillowWood Global LLC., ALPS South, Chas. A. Blatchford & Sons Ltd, Fillauer Inc., Streifeneder USA Inc., ST&G USA Corporation, and College Park Industries Inc.

Prosthetic liner is a protective cover developed from a flexible material, which is fitted on a residual limb, and connects the prosthetic socket. It helps to reduce friction between the residual limb and prosthetic socket, and provides better comfort to patients who use prosthesis devices. Prosthetic liners are developed from materials such as silicone, thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), and polyurethane. Market players are focused on development of prosthetic liners with smart materials that can repair themselves, or change their shape, thickness, and softness.

 Market Dynamics

Increasing number of trauma cases and accidental injuries is expected to drive growth of the market. For instance, according to the report published by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in 2016, 8.6 million injuries from sports and recreational activities were reported in the U.S. Therefore, increasing number of accidents may lead to higher instances of prosthetic device implants, thereby fuelling growth of the prosthetic liners market.

Moreover, increasing technological advancements and product development in the prosthetic liners market are expected to drive growth of the market. For instance, in 2014, Willow Wood launched the new Alpha SmartTemp Liner to moderate the onset of sweat and enhance patient comfort.

However, factors such as moisture control, skin health, and low durability mechanical testing of prosthetic liners are expected to hamper growth of the market.
