Hernia Repair Devices and Consumables Market – Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2016–2024

A hernia is the egress of an organ, such as the intestines, through an aperture in the tissue or muscle that holds it in its place. Hernias can be of various types. Predominantly, they involve the abdomen, especially the groin. Hernias can appear in the belly button or upper thigh. However, groin hernias occur the most among inguinal type (protuberance of the contents of the abdominal-cavity all the way through the inguinal canal). Other hernias include incisional, umbilical hernias, and hiatus. The majority of hernias are not life threatening, however, they do not subside on their own and often require surgical procedures to prevent dangerous complications. Presently, it has been observed that symptoms of hernia are present in about two-third of the patients with groin hernias. Symptoms may include discomfort or pain especially with exercise, coughing, or going to the bathroom. Habitually it gets worse in the day and get better when the patient is lying down. A swelled area may transpire that turn out to be larger when bearing down. The main anxiety is strangulation, in which the blood supply to the bowel part is blocked, producing severe pain and tenderness in the area. Hiatal or hiatus hernias frequently gives rise to heartburn and can also cause pain with eating.

Hernias are generally treated in two ways - surgical procedures and watchful waiting. Surgical procedures include two approaches. They are laparoscopy and open repair surgery. These surgeries are generally performed via mesh, made-up of synthetic or biological material with the help of fixation devices. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, abdominal wall hernias are most common, typically occurring in around 2% of men in the globe. The report says that around 1.5% of the population in the U.S. suffers from hernia (15 per 1000 population). It is estimated that globally around 20 million hernias are treated every year. According to FDA, around one million hernia repairs are performed in the U.S. and around 800,000 are inguinal hernia repairs and the remaining are for other types. Rising prevalence of hernia will ensure increasing adoption of hernia repair devices and consumables market, thereby encouraging the overall market during the forecast period.

Hernia Repair Devices and Consumables Market Taxonomy

On the basis of product type, the global market is classified into:

    • Fixation Devices
    • Consumables

On the basis of surgery type, the global market is classified into:

    • Open tension-free repair
    • Laparoscopic surgery

On the basis of hernia type, the global market is classified into:

    • Incisional hernia
    • Umbilical hernia
    • Inguinal hernia
    • Femoral hernia
    • Others

The rise in adoption of laparoscopic hernia surgeries has given rise to the growing use of fixation devices thereby fuelling the market growth. Presently, key industry players in the hernia repair devices and hernia repair consumables market are introducing technologically advanced treatment products that will help in the growth of the market. Another way of performing hernia repair surgeries is by using sutures. However, owing to the high-recurrence rate of this type of surgery, doctors prefer device (fixation) based surgery. The rising acceptance of technologically advanced fixation devices will be responsible for overall growth of the hernia repair devices and consumables market.

Increasing prevalence of hernia and rising adoption of laparoscopic surgeries will drive the overall hernia repair devices and consumables market

Around 350,000-500,000 ventral hernia repairs are carried out in the U.S. each year, according to the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons. Moreover, owing to the rise in adoption of the same, the growth for the global hernia repair devices and consumables industry will be high. There are two accepted methods in the hernia repair, open tension-free repair and laparoscopic hernia repair surgery. The latter offers less pain and rapid recovery compared to the open tension-free hernia repair surgeries. This type surgery include fixation of mesh on the pre-peritoneal area with the help of fixation devices and other consumables such as staples, anchor and sutures. The fixation of prostheses, such as meshes or plugs, is essentially an important step in hernia repair procedures. Improper fixations may lead to the risk of hernia recurrence. However, advancements in fixation techniques have significantly reduced the unceasing pain caused due to mesh fixation. This will propel the overall growth of the global hernia repair devices and consumables market in the forecast period.

Some of the companies operating in the hernia repair devices and consumables market in the current scenario are C. R. Bard Medicals, Baxter Internationals, Medtronic Inc., B Braun Melsungen AG, W.L. Gore & Associates Inc., Cooper Surgicals Inc., and Ethicon Inc.
