Depends on the orc. If we're talking about Tolkien, common orcs are probably a bit stronger than human civilians, but not as strong as trained soldiers. Their main advantage lies in numbers. Uruks may be a bit stronger than humans.

D&D orcs are a bit stronger than humans on average, and are larger than Tolkien's common orcs. But keep in mind that goblins are a type of orc in Tolkien's books and a different species in regular D&D.

Warhammer (Fantasy and 40K) orcs are definitely larger and stronger than human soldiers, except for (maybe) Space Marines.
