Report Overview

The global prosthetics and orthotics market size was estimated at USD 5.9 billion in 2019 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period. Increasing incidence of sports injuries and road accidents, rising number of diabetes-related amputations, and the growing prevalence of osteosarcoma around the world are poised to drive the global market.

North America prosthetics and orthotics Market size

Nowadays, more people are choosing sports as a career, raising the likelihood of various sports injuries. As per the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), the annual sports injury rate in the U.S. was around 8.7 million in 2018, which represented an age-adjusted rate of around 34.1 per 1,000 population. This factor is anticipated to drive the demand for prosthetics and orthotics.

Alarming rise in the frequency of road accidents is also a leading factor driving limb amputation procedures around the world. According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel (ASIRT), around 20-50 million people in the U.S. were injured or disabled owing to road accidents in 2018. Road traffic accidents are the 9th leading cause of deaths worldwide. ASIRT also reported that as of 2018, over 37,000 people die in road accidents every year in the U.S. As per the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, Government of India, in 2018, around 4, 67,044 people were injured in road accidents, which is further fueling the demand for prosthetics and orthotics.

Increasing incidence of osteosarcoma is also increasing the demand for prosthetics and orthotics products. A report published by the National Cancer Institute estimated around 3,450 new cases of bone and joint cancer in 2018, resulting in 1,590 deaths globally. Children with Cancer UK, a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC), reported that osteosarcoma is the most common bone tumor in children, and every year around 30 new children are diagnosed with the disease in the U.K. as of 2018.

Technological advancement in orthotics and prosthetics is expected to boost the market growth in the near future. 3D printed prosthetics by LimbForge is expected to gain market penetration in developing regions due to its cost-effectiveness and ease of usage. In September 2018, Ottobock launched the C-brace with swing phase control to increase its market visibility in orthotics.

Type Insights

On the basis of type, the market is bifurcated into orthotics and prosthetics. Orthotics is further segmented into the lower limb, upper limb, and spinal orthotics. Prosthetics, on the other hand, comprises upper extremity and lower extremity prosthetics, liners, sockets, and modular components.

Orthotics held the dominant share in the prosthetics and orthotics market in terms of revenue in 2019. This may be attributed to the increasing prevalence of osteoarthritis, rising incidences of sports injuries, and growing penetration of orthopedic technology. Upper limb orthotics accounted for the largest share in 2019 owing to various benefits offered, such as reduced pain and rapid recovery in terms of movement. Spinal orthotics is expected to exhibit the fastest growth rate owing to factors such as an increasing number of spinal injuries, rising target population, and unhealthy lifestyle of youths.

Global prosthetics and orthotics Market share

The prosthetics segment is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Major companies manufacturing this product are Ossur; Zimmer Biomet Holdings Inc.; and Blatchford Inc. An increase in disability rates across the globe is expected to drive the market in the coming years. For instance, as per a report published by the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Disability Statistics and Demographics, in 2018, the percentage of people with disabilities in the U.S. increased from around 11.9% in 2010 to 12.9% in 2017, thereby leading to rising demand for prosthetics.

Regional Insights

In terms of region, North America was the leading market in 2019 and is anticipated to witness the same trend over the foreseeable future. This growth can be attributed to well-established healthcare infrastructure, increasing R&D investments by companies, and favorable reimbursement policies. Moreover, the rising prevalence of osteosarcoma and increasing incidences of sports injuries are expected to drive the market. The focus of the U.S. healthcare system on quality of care and value-based services has also led to a favorable market environment for prosthetics and orthotics.

The Asia Pacific market is expected to exhibit lucrative growth over the forecast period. The region is driven by an increasing number of diabetes-related amputations, a rise in number of road accidents, and supportive government initiatives. For instance, the Asian Prosthetic and Orthotics Meeting was held in Thailand in November 2018 to foster cooperation between Asian countries and discuss ongoing and emerging issues related to prosthetics and orthotics. As per a report by the Asian Diabetes Prevention Initiative, 60% of the diabetic population currently lives in Asia, and by 2030, it is estimated that both India and China will have around half a million people with diabetes. The aforementioned factors are expected to propel the regional market over the forecast period.
