Absorbable Nasal Implant Devices Market Size

Absorbable Nasal Implant Devices Market size surpassed USD 581 million in 2022 and is expected to grow at 7% CAGR from 2023 to 2032. The increasing prevalence of nasal congestions caused by a variety of factors such as allergies, infections, or structural abnormalities are projected to propel the industry growth.

Absorbable Nasal Implant Devices Market

The American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, in 2021, estimates that the nasal congestion is a common health complaint, with an estimated 20 million individuals experience this condition every year in the U.S. Also, the estimates state that up to 30% of adults and 40% of children experience nasal congestion due to allergies. Moreover, the technological advancements in the development of nasal absorbable implants with lowered complications including irritation and other extremities is contributing to the market growth.

Absorbable nasal implant devices are medical devices designed to provide temporary support and drug delivery to the nasal cavity. They are typically made of materials that can be absorbed by the body over time, eliminating the need for removal surgery. These devices can be used to treat a variety of nasal conditions such as nasal valve collapse, septal deviation, or inferior turbinate hypertrophy. They are used for drug delivery, releasing medications such as corticosteroids or antibiotics directly to the nasal cavity to treat inflammation or infection.

However, the lack of product awareness among the populace regarding nasal implants, particularly absorbable nasal implant devices may impede the market growth. Many people are unaware that these devices exist as a treatment option for nasal conditions such as nasal valve collapse or septal deviation. This lack of awareness is owing to the limited use and knowledge, as these devices are relatively new & are not widely adopted in clinical practice.

COVID-19 Impact

Nation-wide lockdowns, and emergencies were imposed in various countries and maintaining crucial medical resources was given priority owing to COVID-19. The medical professionals and specialists were instructed to address only the emergency and critical surgical operations. These developments enforced delays or suspension in the routine care by several healthcare settings, including nasal surgery practice. Certain surgical societies published recommendations regarding postponing implantation procedures, further negatively impacting the nasal surgery practice at ambulatory surgical centers and hospitals in the early 2020,

Absorbable Nasal Implant Devices Market Trends

The increasing prevalence of nasal congestion and the surging number of nasal reconstruction surgeries is escalating the demand for absorbable nasal implants. Nasal congestion refers to obstruction and reduced airflow in the nasal cavity in clinical practice. Multiple conditions are related with congestion that comprises nasal polyposis, obstructive sleep apnea, and anatomic variation. These conditions significantly impair quality of life, congestion leads to reduced daytime productivity and lower night-time sleep time & quality.

As per the National Centers for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) article, in 2019, rhinosinusitis impacts tens of millions of Americans, further leading to nearly USD 6 billion in overall health care expenditures. Statistics indicate that the allergic rhinitis prevalence varies significantly, from 10% to as high as 40%. Overall, the approximate prevalence rate is around 10% to 20% of the global population, with the prevalence of allergic rhinitis increasing since the last 2 to 3 decades. Thus, the high prevalence of these conditions is promoting share.

In addition, considering the high prevalence coupled substantial economic & social burden of this condition, there continues to be a notable unmet clinical need for effective therapeutic alternatives for these conditions. This development further offers a market penetration and business expansion opportunity for the key players. As a result, the growing number for surgical procedures, the rising prevalence of nasal congestion along with associated conditions, and under-penetrated market opportunity is supporting business growth.
