North America prosthetics and orthotics market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

During COVID-19, many regulatory agencies and non-governmental organizations responded to the changing scenario. For example, the National Association for the Advancement of Orthotics & Prosthetics (NAAOP) wrote an open letter to all state governors dated March 19, 2020, seeking the continuation of Prosthetic and Orthotic Care services as part of essential health benefits that patients must have access during the pandemic.

An alarming rise in the frequency of road accidents is also a leading factor in driving amputation. According to the World Health Organization, as of June 2021, around 1.3 million people die every year due to road traffic crashes. According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel (ASIRT), around 20-50 million people across the globe were injured or disabled owing to road accidents in 2018.

COVID-19 prosthetics and orthotics market impact: marginal growth of 3% from 2019 to 2020

Pandemic Impact

Post COVID Outlook

The market growth declined to 3.05% from 2019 to 2020 compared to 4.0% from 2018 to 2019

Orthopedic Clinics began offering online video appointments while most physical operations are expected to resume by the year-end, which will propel the market growth over in next few years.

According to Ossur, the COVID-19 pandemic differently impacted the prosthetics & orthotics market. The demand for prosthetics solutions became stable due to servicing the existing amputee population with maintenance.

During the first quarter of 2021, the market saw a gradual recovery in demand and sales of prosthetics as restrictions eased up and norms relaxed which is expected to impact the market positively

The bracing and supports sales of Ossur declined by 15% to USD 257 million in 2020 due to lesser sports activity and the cancellation of elective surgeries.



Technological advancement in orthotics & prosthetics is expected to boost the market growth soon. 3D printed prosthetics by Limb Forge are expected to gain market penetration in developing regions due to their cost-effectiveness and ease of usage. Furthermore, in June 2020, Ossur launched the Balance Foot S and Balance Foot Torsion, Iceross Seal-In X Locking Liner for people suffering from limb loss and limb difference.

Type Insights

Based on type, the market is segmented into orthotics and prosthetics. Orthotics held the dominant share in the prosthetics & orthotics market in terms of revenue in 2022. 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 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 the factors such as the increasing number of spinal injuries, rising target population, and unhealthy lifestyle of youths. Orthotics are further segmented into lower limbs, upper limbs, and spinal orthotics. Prosthetics, on the other hand, comprise upper-extremity and lower-extremity prosthetics, liners, sockets, and modular components.

Global prosthetics and orthotics market share and size, 2022

The prosthetics segment is expected to show significant growth during the forecast period. Major companies manufacturing this product are Ossur and Blatchford Inc.

Regional Insights

In terms of the region, North America was the leading market in 2022, with a market share of more than 37.0%, and is anticipated to witness the same trend in the near 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 market growth. Moreover, the focus of the U.S. healthcare system on the quality of care and value-based services has led to a favorable market environment for prosthetics &  orthotics.

Prosthetics And Orthotics Market Trends by Region, 2023 - 2030

The Asia Pacific market is expected to show lucrative growth of 5.0% during the forecast period.
