Orthopedic Prosthetics Market to Value Over USD 2.1 Billion by 2026 End

  • 12 Jun 2019

The global orthopedic prosthetics market is expected to value over US$ 2.1 billion by the end of 2026 and growing at a CAGR of over 5% during the forecast period, 2019 to 2026.  

An orthopedic prosthetic is fundamentally an artificial limb designed to amputate and substitute a body part of a patient. Artificial limbs facilitate efficient bodily movements even after the loss of limbs. Due to improvements in technology, these limbs are almost look-alikes of their natural counterparts and there is no stark difference and thus are not easily identifiable. The rise in demand for orthopedic prosthetics due to the high occurrence of serious injuries are driving the growth of the global orthopedic prosthetics market.
The main focus areas of orthopedic prosthetics are concerning the patient’s identification, designing in the manufacturing of custom-made artificial limbs. These prosthetics take the place of natural limbs and thus should be of low weight but high tenacity and strength. In order to cater to all of this, materials, such as thermoplastics, metals, carbon fibre, EVA (Ethylene-vinyl acetate), or a combination of these are commonly used in production. Having witnessed significant developments in the sphere of design and production technologies, an increased level of comfort and increased usability, and increased resistance to wear and tear has evolved.  The rising number of diabetes-related amputations, and growing prevalence of osteosarcoma; a malignant tumour of bone in which there is a proliferation of osteoblasts, around the world, is expected to aid the global market's growth.
With wide career options and accessibility of sports as a profession, thus encourages a lot of people to opt for it.  This also increases the probability of sport-related injuries thereafter. This further fuels the need for prosthetics and their market thereafter.
The already established firms in the market are acquiring new entrants in order to expand their global reach. In April 2019, Scheck & Siress announces the acquisition of Ballert Orthopedic. Ballert Orthopedic has an 8-decade long history leading in orthotics and prosthetics.  This will enhance Scheck’s ability to expand reach deliver best-in-class, convenient O&P care throughout the Chicago area. Similarly, in March 2019, Exactech, another big firm acquires XpandOrtho. XpandOrtho is a designer of soft tissue balancing instruments for knee replacement surgery. Prime factor behind this acquisition is to support Exactech’s growth strategy and commitment to improving surgeon experience and patient outcomes.
