The prosthetic liner is a protective cover worn over a residual limb. It is made from a flexible cushioning material, which reduces chafing and movement between the socket and the skin. Liners are the best available means of reducing bone pressure, preventing skin abrasions in the prosthesis, and improving socket suspension for amputees. Modern day liners are equipped with special features such as antibacterial shields and additives, anatomical shaping, textile outer layers for easier application, and puncture resistant formulas. Selecting the right liner helps ensure a proper fit and comfort for the amputees. Standard models are available in three primary materials: silicone liners, polyurethane liners, and copolymer liner. Silicone liners are preferred for individuals having low to moderate activity levels. These liners are easy to clean and durable. Polyurethane liners offer an intimate, precise, and comfortable fit. These liners are a good choice for sensitive and bony residual limbs. Polyurethane liners perform best with suction or vacuum suspension and are recommended for individuals having high activity levels. Copolymer liners are soft, highly elastic, and cushiony. These offer good protection to the residual limb. These liners are recommended for individuals having low activity levels.

The global prosthetic liners market is witnessing significant growth owing to the rapidly increasing geriatric population, rising incidence of road accidents, and technological developments. A report published in 2013 by the United Nations Population Division stated that the global geriatric population is expected to rise from 841 million in 2013 to 2 billion by 2050. It also revealed that people aged 80 years and above accounted for 14% of the global geriatric population in 2013 and the percentage is projected to reach 19% by 2050. Therefore, consistent rise in the geriatric population across the world is expected to be one of the major factors fueling the growth of the prosthetic liners market. Moreover, increasing number of road injuries is a major factor propelling the growth of the prosthetic liners market. According to the World Health Organization, road traffic injuries are the primary cause of death in people aged between 15 years and 29 years. More than 85% of the total on road fatalities occur in developing nations.
