The podiatry physician market in the U.S. is expected to benefit from the aging population and the increase in arthritis and diabetes.
The fragmented U.S. podiatry physician practice market, dominated by groups with less than 3 physicians, represents an attractive consolidation opportunity.
The sector is highly fragmented and is largely served by smaller private practices, presenting an opportunity to embark roll-up strategy.
Diverse revenue streams
Presence of ancillary services such as diagnostic vascular and nerve testing, cosmetic treatments, physical therapy, and in-office dispensing of foot care products, makes the specialty more attractive for potential buyers.
Favorable macro trends
An aging American population and rising awareness of podiatry services will boost the growth of the specialty, thus fueling the interest of buyers in the sector.
Increased bargaining power
Larger podiatry practices have more resources to allocate towards marketing expenditures and negotiations with managed-care organizations to be included in their provider network.
