The global hernia repair market size was valued at USD 4,362.3 Million in 2018. Rising pool of geriatric and obese population, as well as the high demand for minimally invasive surgical procedures, are the key drivers pertaining to hernia repair market growth.
Hernia occurs when an organ, fatty tissue or intestine protrudes through a weak spot or a hole in the surrounding connective tissue or muscle. There are many types of hernias that occur in the body such as inguinal, incisional, femoral, and ventral, among others. To treat such hernias various treatments are available in market such as non-surgical and surgical procedures. However, in many cases surgical treatments are widely preferred over non-surgical ones. As per research findings brought forward by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in the U.S. over one million hernia repair procedures are performed each year and around 8,00,000 are to repair inguinal hernias and the remaining are for the other types of hernias. However, the high cost associated with consumables meshes hampers the market growth of hernia repair globally.
The size of the global market for Hernia Repair is expected to reach USD 7.4 billion by 2030, expanding at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.2%.
North America dominated the global market for hernia repair representing revenue share of 39.1% in 2018. On the other hand, Asia-Pacific is anticipated to exhibit rapid growth during the forecast period on account of the rising awareness of hernia repair treatment and adoption of new technologies in surgical procedure across the region.
The global hernia repair market is highly fragmented owing to the presence of a large number of players spread across the world. Leading players in the market are Medtronic, C.R.Bard, Cook Medical, B Braun Melsungen AG, W.L. Gore & Associates, Aspide Medical, and Dipro Medical Devices Slr. The key players are undertaking initiatives such as product launch to strengthen their position in the global market. For instance, in October 2019, Exogenesis Corporation received approval from FDA for nano-modified hernia mesh. This mesh has favorable post-implant tissue compatibility and is manufactured by using accelerated neutral atom beam technology. Such advanced technology in mesh further improves the patient outcome in hernia repair.
In 2019, Bassini technique developed for an Open Indirect Inguinal Hernia Repair which provides a straightforward, robust and cost-effective option as compared to laparoscopic hernia repair approach
