The global artificial organs market size was valued at USD 6.9 million in 2023. The market is projected to grow from USD 12.2 million in 2024 to USD 132.7 million by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 34.7% during the forecast period.

Artificial organs are engineered devices that can be integrated or implanted into a human body, interfacing with living tissue to replace a natural organ. In recent times, the market has observed significant progress in developing organ manufacturing technologies.

Growing aging population, coupled with the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, chronic kidney diseases, and cardiovascular diseases, is leading to increasing cases of organ failure. The increasing cases of organ failures will result in high demand for organ transplants, consequently driving the adoption of these organs as they can act as bridge-to-transplant. Thus, these factors are contributing to the market growth.

  • According to the data published by the American Kidney Fund in December 2021, approximately 37.0 million people in the U.S. have kidney disease; approximately 556,000 are on dialysis, and more than 250,000 people are living with a kidney transplant. The same data states that approximately 135,000 people in the U.S. were newly diagnosed with kidney failure in 2021.

Furthermore, an increasing number of pipeline products by market players alongside anticipated product approvals to meet the growing patient needs of organ transplants will further contribute to market growth.

  • According to the data published by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) in 2024, as of September 2023, 107,999 were on the organ transplant waiting list. Thus, with an increasing number of patients on the organ transplant waiting list, the demand for artificial organs will also increase in the coming years.

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the market owing to the disruptions in manufacturing operations, supply chain management, and healthcare services globally, leading to a slowdown in the production and distribution of artificial organs. Moreover, companies witnessed a drop in their sales due to supply chain restrictions. For instance, CARMAT’s sales were negatively affected in the first half of 2021, as travel restrictions measures delayed certain implants. The company experienced supply chain issues, which slowed the rate of inventory build-up and prosthesis production. This has resulted in a temporary decline in the demand for these organs.

Artificial Organs Market Trends

Rising Research and Development Activities Among Research Institutes and Market Players

Research and development activities in the healthcare sector have witnessed significant growth over the past few years. Increasing emphasis on research funding with increasing project initiatives by government organizations and market players have accelerated the R&D activities in the artificial organs market.

  • According to the 2023 annual report of CARMAT, the company received a total of USD 9.4 million in 2023 from the European Innovation Council (EIC). 

There is a significant gap between the number of patients suffering from end-stage chronic diseases and available treatment options. Therefore, to address the growing need of patients undergoing organ transplants, academic and research institutes have accelerated R&D activities and clinical trials in the artificial organs field. In addition, constant innovations by market players to develop artificial organ devices, along with a strong product pipeline and potential product approvals, will transform the industry and benefit several people suffering from organ failure.

Artificial Organs Market Growth Factors

Increasing Incidences of Organ Failure to Drive Market Growth

Organ failure has become a global health crisis, with a significant gap between the patients requiring organ transplants and the available donors.

  • According to the data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in October 2022, the most commonly transplanted organs in the U.S. were the liver, heart, kidney, pancreas, intestines, and lungs. There were approximately 100,000 people on the waiting list in 2021 for organ transplantation, and only about 14,000 organs were received from deceased donors.

In addition, kidney disease is the fastest-growing non-communicable disease in the U.S., and it is growing at an alarming rate, affecting more than 1 in 7 or 15% of American adults.

  • According to the data published by the American Kidney Fund in 2021, approximately 37.0 million people are living with kidney disease, out of which 808,000 people in the U.S. are living with kidney failure and 556,000 people are on dialysis.

Therefore, the growing cases of kidney failure will drive the demand for artificial kidneys as the number of patients requiring kidney transplants will also increase. Thus, these factors are projected to drive market growth during the forecast period.


Higher Costs of Surgical Procedures May Hamper Device Adoption

The higher costs linked with artificial organ procedures pose a significant economic barrier for the healthcare system and patients. Treatments for these procedures have become increasingly restricted owing to an increase in procedural costs. The financial strain may limit the adoption of artificial organs globally, mainly for individuals from lower socioeconomic status.

Furthermore, the availability of heart donors is lower, boosting the penetration of artificial organ devices. However, the high costs linked with implanting these devices have limited their adoption. An estimated cost for an artificial heart, including surgical procedures, devices, and continuing medical surveillance, ranges from USD 100,000 per patient to USD 300,000 per patient in the initial year.

  • In January 2021, the European Commission approved the sale of a total new artificial heart manufactured and developed by CARMAT, which cost around USD 180,000. Thus, the high cost of these devices may restrict their adoption among individuals.

Moreover, the average total artificial heart costs range from USD 150,000 to USD 200,000 when compared to a heart transplant, and using a total artificial heart (TAH) as a bridge to a transplant doubles the cost of care. Thus, these factors may restrict artificial organs market growth.

Artificial Organs Market Segmentation Analysis

By Organ Type Analysis

Presence of Only Approved Products in the Artificial Organ Contributed to the Artificial Heart Dominance
