Rising prevalence of lower limb amputation among diabetic patients is expected to boost growth of the orthopedic prosthetic devices market

A major driver for market growth is the rising prevalence of lower limb amputations among diabetic patients such as diabetic foot problems, which is caused by changes in the blood vessels and nerves that leads to ulceration and subsequently leads to limb amputation. According to World Health Organization (WHO), as of 2017, 170 million people are estimated to be suffering from diabetes globally. Additionally, increasing number of trauma cases across the globe, is in turn, increasing the demand for orthopedic prosthetic devices and products. According to World Health Organization (WHO), 2017, around 50 million people are severely injured in road accidents every year across the globe. However, high costs of orthopedic products are expected to hinder the market growth.
