The 10 largest orthopedic device companies in the world

[Image from Pixaby]Pent-up demand could make orthopedic devices a hot space in 2021.

The COVID-19 pandemic was especially brutal for the orthopedic device industry. Many of the largest companies in the space saw double-digit percentage declines in revenue in 2020. Health providers delayed or canceled elective procedures to focus on the pandemic, and patients stayed away in droves.

Rather than hunkering down during the pandemic, many ortho device companies chose shop for new technologies and major M&A deals. They’re reorganizing and launching new products ranging from surgical robots to smart implants.
