High prevalence of hernia is amongst the major factors contributing to the hernia repair devices market growth. The rise in the number of hernia cases has promoted the hernia repair procedures that is anticipated to drive the adoption of hernia repair devices, further driving the market potential.
 

According to the National Centers for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), in 2020, over 20 million patients undergo groin hernia repair surgeries every year. Thus, the high incidence of hernia and increasing number of hernia repair procedures is projected to drive the market statistics in the foreseeable future.
 

Hernia refers to a medical condition that occurs when a fatty tissue or an organ bulges out through a weak spot or weakened tissue. Hernia repair devices are medical devices that are incorporated in a surgical procedure for the treatment of a hernia. These devices include hernia mesh that are used to support damaged tissue around hernias as it heals; and fixation devices that aid in the fixation of mesh using tack, glue, staples, etc.
 

However, high cost of hernia repair procedures and presence of non-mesh repair as an alternative and the incremental cost associated with hernia repair surgeries may impact the adoption of hernia repair devices. According to an article, the average cost of hernia repair procedure in the U.S. is USD 7,750, although the cost of surgery ranges from USD 3,900 to USD 12,500.
 

The inpatient hernia repair costs are on the higher end of the price range with the average cost accounting for USD 11,500. Furthermore, these devices are classified under Class II medical devices that require premarket notification (510k) to gain regulatory approval for commercial application. Thus, stringent regulatory framework along with high cost of hernia repair devices may impede the hernia repair devices market outlook.
 

The emergence of COVID-19 was an unparalleled public health concern and has led to an increased number of hospitalizations. The outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic infected millions of people across the globe during 2020 and initial phase of 2021. To limit the spread of SARS-CoV-2 virus, nationwide lockdowns were imposed, and emergencies were declared in majority of the countries.
 

Further, the prioritization of COVID-19 patients affected other medical practices and reduced the procedural volume of several elective surgeries including hernia repair. An NCBI article, published in 2021 reported that the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak affected elective non-urgent surgical pathologies including hernias, owing to periodical cancellations and postponements.
 

The decrease in the number of emergencies as well as general visits related to hernia repair in the year 2020 has affected product acceptance to a certain level, thereby impacting the market growth. As per the Springer article, in 2020, Herniamed reported a 75% decrease in the hernia surgeries performed during March 2020, as compared to same period in 2019 in Germany. Such developments hampered the market growth in 2020. However, with reducing cases of COVID-19 infection and restoration of elective surgical volume, the market is predicted to experience substantial growth in coming years.
 

High prevalence of hernia is expected to stimulate the market expansion

The rising prevalence of hernia is anticipated to augment the industry growth. According to the Electronic Physician Journal, in 2017, the prevalence of abdominal hernias was approximately 11.7%, with the most profound cases associated with para-umbilical hernia, inguinal hernia, and umbilical hernia. The high prevalence of hernia would drive the demand for hernia repair procedures that is set to prove conducive for the market growth. Hernia mesh devices are incorporated in hernia repair surgeries to assist and support the growth of the diseased tissue.
 

Thus, the rise in the incidence and prevalence of hernia is set to drive the number of hernia repair surgeries and fuel the adoption of hernia repair devices. For instance, as per the Royal College of Surgeons of England article, published in 2020, approximately 100,000 hernia repairs are performed every year in England. As a result, the rise in incidence and prevalence of hernia is projected to accelerate the adoption of hernia repair devices demand significantly.

Based on product, hernia repair devices market is segmented as hernia mesh and fixation devices. The hernia mesh segment is poised to reach more than USD 4,791 million by 2028 owing to the increasing adoption of hernia mesh devices in hernia repair surgeries. According to the Royal College of Surgeons of England article, published in 2020, around 75% of the hernias are repaired using mesh devices.
 

The hernia mesh devices surgical mesh aid in bolstering the hernia repair and lower the rate of recurrence. Further, the use of mesh devices also helps in improving patient outcomes by reduced operative time and minimized recovery time. Thus, the high usage, applicability, and growing number of hernia surgeries is projected to contribute to the market expansion over the forecast period.
 

Benefits such as the low procedural cost and fewer post-operative complications will propel the business expansion

Based on procedure, the market is segmented as open surgery, laparoscopic surgery, and robotic surgery. The open surgery segment accounted for around 64% of market share in 2021 and is projected to experience notable growth over the analysis timeframe owing to benefits such as the low procedural cost and fewer post-operative complications. Open repair surgery is amongst the most preferred and performed procedure in the management & treatment of hernias.
 

Open hernia repair surgery provides numerous benefits to patients. This technique enables the healthcare professionals to insert two pieces of mesh that provides additional reinforcement to the diseased muscle. Further, open hernia repair surgery can be performed using local or spinal anesthesia, as alternative to general anesthesia. This development increases the preference for this surgery in patients with certain risk and complications associated with general anesthesia.
 

High prevalence and increasing number of inguinal hernia repair procedures is projected to fuel the market forecasts

Based on hernia type, hernia repair devices market is segmented as inguinal hernia, ventral hernia, femoral hernia, and others. The inguinal hernia segment is expected to expand at 6.4% CAGR from 2022-2028 due to the high prevalence and increasing number of inguinal hernia repair procedures. Inguinal hernia repair procedure refers to an incision in the oblique and transversalis muscles that enables for herniation of intra-abdominal organs.
 

According to the NCBI article, in 2021, inguinal hernias account for approximately 75% of all abdominal hernias. The incidence rate of inguinal hernias increases in children aged 5 and in individuals aged 70 & above. Owing to high incidence rates, over 800,000 inguinal repairs performed every year in the U.S. Thus, the high incidence and number of inguinal hernia repair procedures is anticipated to promote the acceptance rate of hernia repair devices, further driving the market revenue significantly.
