The development and adoption of the human augmentation technology in the medical and defense industry has revolutionized the human augmentation market.

The “human augmentation”, also known as “human enhancement”, basically focuses on creating cognitive and physical improvements in the human body. A basic example that can be cited is the usage of the active control systems to create limb prosthetics in order to exceed the human performance. This market works on techniques that are not only limited to treating illnesses and disability, but also for enhancing human characteristics and capacities.

The factors that are driving the growth of the human augmentation market are the moving of the healthcare industry toward perfection; a safe and strong defense; and sensors advancement. However, the major restraints for the growth of the market are ethical, legal, and social concerns; and high cost equipment and lack of skilled personnel. Technical development is expected to create lot of opportunities for the growth of the market.
