Animal Ortho-Prosthetics Market Overview
The Animal Ortho-Prosthetics Market is expected to register a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period, 2018-2023. The Animal ortho-prosthetics market is associated with orthopedic devices designed in order to assist the injured animals, in order to provide position, immobilize, align, support, prevent deformity, improve functioning, and are coupled with prosthetic devices for compensating for the missing leg segment.
Rising Prevalence of Obesity in Pets to Boost the Growth of the Animal Ortho-Prosthetics Market
High prevalence of obesity among the pet population is expected to propel the market growth, owing to the direct association of obesity and overweight with osteoarthritis and mobility issues in dogs. Excess fat and bodyweight increase the load on joints resulting in the progression of arthritis and further difficulty in movement. Hence, the prevalence of joint inflammatory diseases is expected to grow with the rise in the prevalence of obesity, which has currently been identified as the most common nutritional health problem in dogs.
According to the results of 2017 Pet Obesity Survey done by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention (APOP), 56% of dogs have been identified as overweight (body condition score (BCS) 6-7) or obese (BCS 8-9). Hence, the prevalence of obesity has been observed to increase, owing to the fact that in 2016, APOP classified 54% of dogs as overweight or obese in the United States. Similarly, American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) estimated 40% to 50% of the total dogs to be overweight and 25% of dogs to be obese in 2017. Thus, the increasing percentage of obese dogs is expected to drive the growth of the ortho-prosthetics market.

High Cost of Ortho-Prosthetics to Impede the Growth of the Animal Ortho-Prosthetics Market
A rise in the statistics of issues associated with limbs, such as osteoarthritis, pododermititis, and lameness, are expected to drive the demand for ortho-prosthetics over the world. These unmet needs are fulfilled by the advancements in the field of ortho-prosthetics in animals. Fabricated limbs for animals are made using 3D printing, in order to create prosthetic support and orthopedic braces for therapeutics mobility in animals. These devices used with a biomechanical approach benefit the animals, in terms of mobility, as well as comfort for their day-to-day activities. Orthotic devices facilitate various purposes, such as rehabilitation, prophylactic, and functional. Prosthetics are considered to be appropriate alternatives for surgical procedures and post-surgical assistance for recovery.
However, the costs associated with these devices are a major hurdle for the growth of the market. Orthotics devices range from USD 800 to USD 1500, whereas, prosthetics devices range from USD 1,400 to USD 1,700. These high costs are discouraging their adoption, as all the pet owners are unable to spend such an amount on their pet’s ortho-prosthetic needs. Hence, high cost of orthotic and prosthetic devices are expected to restrain the growth of the overall market.
North America to Dominate the Animal Ortho-Prosthetics Market
The geographical analysis of the animal ortho-prosthetics market states the dominance of North America in the global market, followed by the Europe. The major factors attributing toward the dominance and growth of these regions are higher availability of therapeutic options for animals, greater awareness regarding ortho-prosthetics, presence of major market players, and rising animal health expenditure.
On the other hand, Asia-Pacific is expected to exhibit the fastest growth rate over the forecast period, owing to the rising pet population, increasing awareness, and rising number of veterinary practitioners in the emerging regions. However, costs associated with these devices would still remain an area of concern in these countries, owing to the presence of a large number of low income groups.
