A hernia is a protrusion of an organ or a group of organs. It occurs when an organ or any other bodily component protrudes beyond the wall of tissue or muscle that surrounds the organs and becomes visible. The presence of hernia symptoms including vomiting, discomfort, and constipation as well as other symptoms might be noted while participating in particular activities such as jogging or walking. Inguinal hernias, umbilical hernias, femoral hernias, incisional hernias, spigelian hernias, obturator hernias, hiatal hernias, epigastric hernias, and diaphragmatic hernias are all examples of abdominal wall hernias. The majority of hernias are not serious, and they may be repaired surgically to avoid additional difficulties.
Global hernia repair devices market is estimated to be valued at US$ 7,275.7 million in 2022 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 7.6% during the forecast period (2022-2030).

Increasing geriatric population is expected to boost demand for hernia repair devices and is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.
Increasing geriatric population is expected to drive market growth over the forecast period. For instance, according to Rural Health Information Hub, a U. S. government organization, as of June, 2019, there are more than 46 million adults with age 65 and older living in the U.S. and by 2050, that number is expected to grow to almost 90 million. Thus, increase in the geriatric population is expected to drive the market growth for the forecast period.

|Restraints & Challenges:||
Global Hernia Repair Devices Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe and the World Health Organization had declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.
COVID-19 has affected the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting production and demand of drugs and vaccines, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to nationwide lockdowns, several countries, such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, and others, faced problems with regard to the transportation of drugs and vaccines from one place to another. COVID-19 had limited impact on the global hernia repair devices market as hospitals were occupied by COVID-19 patients.
Global Hernia Repair Devices Market: Key Developments
In July, 2020, researchers from University Politehnica of Bucharest, Romania, reported that hydrogel coatings based on methacryloyl gelatin and methacryloyl mucin have potential to modulate polypropylene mesh integration in abdominal wall repair.
Global Hernia Repair Devices Market: Restraint
Stringent regulatory approval process is expected to hinder growth of the global hernia repair devices market.
Moreover, high cost of R&D (research and development) of hernia repair devices is also expected to limit the market growth. A manufacturer of hernia repair device has to satisfy various regulatory and clinical requirements before launching the product. This prolonged phase of development and approvals forces medical device manufacturers to maintain initial high cost of hernia repair devices. High cost of products results in lack of appropriate accessibility to various technological advancements, thereby hampering the uptake.
Major players operating in the global hernia repair devices market include Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc., Cooper Companies Inc., Lifecell Corporation (Allergan Plc), W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc., Maquet Holding B.V. & Co. KG, Becton, Dickinson and Company, Medtronic Plc, Cook Medical Inc., Baxter International Inc., and B. Braun Melsungen AG.
Hernia is bulging of an organ or tissue. It occurs when an organ or any other body part protrudes through the wall of tissue or muscle of organs. Symptoms of hernia such as pain, vomiting, constipation, heartburn, and others can be observed during certain activities such as running or walking. Different types of abdominal wall hernias include inguinal hernia, femoral hernia, umbilical hernia, incisional hernia, spigelian hernia, obturator hernia, epigastric hernia, hiatal hernia, and diaphragmatic hernia. Most of the hernias are not severe, which can be removed by surgeries to prevent further complications. There are three treatment options for hernia, such as medication, surgery, and change in lifestyle.
Hernia repair is one of the most common surgical procedures performed across the world. The incidence of hernia is higher in men than in women. This disorder is associated with risk factors such as obesity, smoking, unhealthy lifestyle, and age. About 75% of all hernias occur in the groin among adults, leading to an increase in the adoption of hernia repair devices among the demographic. The high incidence of hernia is creating demand for efficient hernia repair devices, which is expected to boost the market growth over the forecast period.
The increasing adoption of mesh in hernia repair surgeries, rising geriatric population, new product developments, and efficient reimbursement system in developed countries are the major factors driving growth of the hernia repair devices market during the forecast period. The high incidence of hernia is creating a growing demand for efficient repair devices, which is expected to supplement the market growth. For instance, according to the U.S. FDA (Food and Drug Administration), as on 04 February 2018, more than a million hernia repair procedures are done annually in the U.S. alone. Thus, due to high incidence of hernia there is demand for an efficient solution for hernia, which is expected to be responsible for the market growth for the forecast period.
