The growing prevalence of hernia worldwide is a primary factor influencing the industry growth. Hernia is a medical condition that usually occurs when a weak spot in the abdominal muscles is protruded by an internal organ inside the human body. Clinical studies suggest that physical conditions such as obesity, straining while defecation, extreme coughing, inheritance, and strenuous activities such as heavy lifting, may lead to hernia.

According to an article published in the BMJ Journal in 2020, over 20 million hernias are operated on worldwide, accounting for about 15%-18% of total surgical interventions. The growing incidence of hernia has led to a significant surge in the number of hernia repair procedures. The rising necessity to heal and strengthen the diseased hernia tissue is pushing the demand for hernia repair devices across the healthcare industry.

Increasing hernia tissue repair surgeries to fuel the demand for hernia mesh

The hernia mesh segment led the product landscape in 2021, having accounted for almost 73% of the market share the same year. The growing utilization of hernia mesh devices for hernia repair surgeries is likely to bolster the segment size, which is projected to expand at a 6% CAGR over the assessment period. The inclusion of hernia meshes in hernia tissue repair procedures is known to reduce complications as they efficiently determine the hernia recurrence rates while strengthening the diseased tissue. The remarkable characteristics of these devices help decrease operating room time and recuperation while enhancing clinical consequences, fostering product adoption in the coming years.

Open Surgeries to gain popularity due to lesser complications

With regards to the procedure type, the open surgery segment is anticipated to grow substantially over the projection period. The open repair surgical technique has gained considerable popularity among healthcare professionals as it enables them to position two pieces of mesh, offering better support to the diseased muscles. The hernia repair devices market size from the open surgery segment exceeded USD 2.7 million in 2021. The segmental growth through 2030 can be credited to benefits such as low costs and lesser post-surgical complications.

Expanding aging population to increase inguinal hernia segment share

Based on hernia type, the inguinal hernia segment held over 74% of the market share in 2021. Inguinal hernia is predominantly the most common type of abdominal wall hernia, exhibiting greater prevalence in men. Almost 25% of men are at risk of developing the disease, and the prevalence grows with advancing age. The increasing frequency of the given health condition has augmented the number of inguinal hernia repair procedures, creating new growth prospects for the hernia repair devices market.

The regional industry is anticipated to register substantial growth owing to the increasing incidences of hernia and the presence of key industry participants. The availability of favorable reimbursement policies is another factor pushing the regional market expansion. The increasing disease burden across the region has pushed the adoption of advanced hernia repair equipment such as fixation devices and hernia mesh to perform hernia repair surgeries.

Increasing acquisitions to foster the competitive landscape

Major companies forming a part of the competitive landscape of the hernia repair devices market include Becton Dickenson & Company, Medtronic, Ethicon (J&J), B. Braun Melsungen AG, CooperSurgical (The Cooper Companies), Cook Medical, Baxter International, Inc., W.L. Gore & Associates, Integra LifeSciences, AbbVie, FEG Textiltechnik, TELA Bio, Primequal, and Meril Life Sciences, Stryker Corporation, Herniamesh SRL, Getinge AB, Dipromed SRL, Cousin Surgery, and TransEasy Medical Tech. Co., Ltd. (Beijing Tianzhu Changyun Medical Technology Co., Ltd). These firms have been adopting necessary growth measures such as new product development and improving existing product offerings to retain their position in the market.

The acquisition added LifeCell's new regenerative medicines business, comprising its high-quality and long-lasting portfolio of dermal matrix products, to the former's leading portfolio of regenerative products. This move enabled Allergan to enter regenerative medicine and assisted in developing a more comprehensive product offering regarding hernia repair devices.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Hernia Repair Devices Market Share

The COVID-19 profusely hampered the industry growth as the increasing severity of the crisis and the surging number of patients requiring critical care resulted in the dearth of medical staff and hospital beds. These complications led to the postponement and cancellation of various elective surgical procedures, including hernia repair surgeries, negatively impacting the industry growth. However, with the pandemic restrictions slowly waiving off and vaccination drives continuing at a considerable pace, the market has made a significant recovery so far and is likely to follow a similar trend in the forthcoming years.
