Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

EMG Biosensors Market size is poised to reach USD 2 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 9% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of EMG biosensors was USD 625 Million. The reason behind the growth is impelled by increasing cases of musculoskeletal disorders. Musculoskeletal disorders are the main cause of disability, brought on by biomechanical stress, and bodily reaction, overexertion, or repetitive motion. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), musculoskeletal disorders affect about 1.71 billion individuals across the globe.

The growing technological advancements in EMG biosensors are believed to fuel the market growth. For instance, there are now more opportunities for human–machine interfaces (HMI) employing EMG sensors as they can be used in a variety of industries, including virtual reality interfaces, prosthetics, and rehabilitation to give constant signal data, making it possible to track muscle activation in real-time and to predict and classify user movements.

EMG Biosensors Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Geriatric Population Across the Globe - Elderly people are more prone to neuromuscular diseases such as sarcopenia, and the rising number of elderly populations around the globe is estimated to drive market growth. Besides this, elderly people often need physical therapy in which EMG biosensors help in providing real-time feedback and monitoring the progress. According to estimates, the number of individuals in the world who are 60 or older will rise to over 2 billion by 2050.
  • Surging Popularity of Minimally Invasive Surgery - The EMG treatment is non-invasive, and its non-invasive nature and practicality are thought to be the key drivers of its widespread implementation.  EMG data are collected primarily via the non-invasive technique of skin surface sampling.
  • Rising Demand for Wearable Devices - Wearable technology offers an alternative to clinical diagnostics with minimal invasiveness and can be used to track mental health, offer early diagnosis, and perform guided training.
  • Increasing Prevalence of Neurological Diseases - Medical professionals frequently employ EMG instruments for the early diagnosis of neurological disorders and are being investigated more and more as assessment tools for impairment in neurological diseases. Moreover, Parkinson's disease one of the most significant in terms of the future global burden of diseases can be identified by EMG, and can also be used to track the effectiveness of treatment. For instance, neurological illnesses make up over 7% of the global incidence of illness.


  • Exorbitant Cost of EMG Biosensors - EMG biosensors include sensitive electrodes, amplifiers, and other advanced technology that necessitate substantial research and development, which raises the overall production costs. Besides this, the cost and difficulty of acquiring invasive electromyography and surface electromyography (sEMG) are high since they consume a lot of power.
  • Inaccurate Data Can Lead to Incorrect Diagnosis and Misinterpretation
  • Lack of Standardization and Regulation May Restrict Entry for New EMG Biosensor Technologies
  • Privacy and Data Security Concerns

EMG Biosensors Segmentation

End-User (Hospitals and Clinics, Ambulatory Health Clinics, Academic and Research Centers)

The hospitals and clinics segment in the EMG biosensors market is estimated to gain a robust revenue share of 45% in the coming years. The number of patients in the hospital has increased therefore the demand for frequent health monitoring is also rising. This as a result has led to the adoption of EMG biosensors in hospitals and clinics since nurses and other medical staff at hospitals monitor patients' health with wearable biosensors to reduce readmissions, and doctors frequently utilize them in various applications including identifying neurological and neuromuscular diseases, pollution detection, drug development, and others.

Type (Surface Biosensors, and Intramuscular Biosensors)

EMG biosensors market from the surface biosensors segment is set to garner a notable share shortly impelled by the rising need for surface biosensors to assess the level of musculoskeletal disorder. To fulfill the increased demand for precise and quick diagnostics of musculoskeletal illnesses, it is anticipated that the market for surface biosensors will increase. The skin's analog EMG signal is captured by the surface EMG measurement module, which is a non-invasive technique for determining neuromuscular potentials since the EMG signals provide more information about the muscle's activity including joint movement, and posture. Surface electromyography (EMG) is the most used technique for identifying muscle tiredness, and the largest part of a muscle can be covered with sMMG sensors, which can measure physical changes in the muscles.

Our in-depth analysis of the global market includes the following segments:


  • Surface Biosensors
  • Intramuscular Biosensors


  • Signal Intensity Registration
  • Pattern Recognition
  • Others Chemical Research
