Competitive Landscape
Demand for podiatry services is driven by population growth and demographics. Profitability depends on patient volume, insurance reimbursement, reputation, and operational efficiency. Large practices enjoy economies of scale related to administrative costs and purchasing diagnostic equipment. Small practices can compete effectively by providing good customer service and by operating from convenient locations.
The industry is highly fragmented: the top 50 firms account for about 10% of industry revenue. Historically, solo practice has been the norm for podiatrists. However, more group practices are emerging, often with other specialists as part of the practice group. Podiatrists are also employed by hospitals, health departments, and nursing homes.
