The device company industry is constantly changing, with mergers and acquisitions rife within the orthopedic market through 2020 and into 2021. 

While dips in revenue were widespread across the medical device industry last year due to the cessation of elective surgeries because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many orthopedic companies are well positioned to recover this year. Fortune Business Insights estimates the market to be worth $53.4 billion and projects it to rise to $68.5 billion by 2027, increasing at a compound annual growth rate of 6.6 percent.
