Global Electromyography (EMG) Devices Market 2018-2022
About Electromyography (EMG) Devices
An EMG device, also known as electromyograph, is used to detect and measure the electric potentials generated by the contraction of muscles. These data are used to diagnose neuromuscular disease or restore motor-nerve functions. These devices are also used in NCS and intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM).
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global electromyography (EMG) devices market to grow at a CAGR of 7.12% during the period 2018-2022.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global electromyography (EMG) devices market for 2018-2022. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of electromyography (EMG) devices.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Electromyography (EMG) Devices Market 2018-2022

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Increasing use in prosthesis. The application of bioengineering in prosthetic rehabilitation is gaining popularity. Until recently, improvements in prosthesis were confined only to the materials used to manufacture them. However, neural interfacing, also known as brain-computer interface in the prosthesis, is the latest development in this field. This process utilizes neural signaling from the brain to control the movement of the prosthesis, which makes individuals feel that the artificial limb is a part of their own body. Implantable electrodes are also being used to enhance the efficiency in terms of sensitivity and accuracy of prosthesis movement.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increasing prevalence of neuromuscular disorders. Neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and limb-girdle muscular dystrophy are significantly on the rise, worldwide. Neuromuscular diseases are chronic diseases that require regular monitoring and proper management. The prevalence of most of these neuromuscular disorders ranges from 1 to 10 people in every 100,000 population. The incidence of spinal muscular atrophy is higher than neuromuscular diseases. It affects four out of every 50,000 individuals. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the prevalence of ALS in the US during 2010- 2011 was 3.9 cases per 100,000 persons. This is driving the demand for EMG devices, thus, fueling market growth.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Limitations of EMG devices. Several physical and physiological factors affect the accuracy of signal detection in the use of EMG devices, especially during a NCS. The physiological factors that affect accuracy and signal detection include non-homogeneity between the skin and the electrode, number of active motor units in the skin under investigation, and difference in the conduction velocity of these motor units. These cannot be controlled by the user of EMG device, but they can be reduced to some extent.
