Tissue Expanders Market Size is expected to register a considerable growth rate from 2022 to 2028. Tissue expanders are unfilled temporary implants placed under the skin and filled gradually with saline water or carbon-di-oxide. They are generally used for breast reconstruction, repairing scars and damages in burn-related cases, and congenital deformities.
The rapid upsurge in breast reconstruction surgeries, driven by the preponderance of breast cancer in women across the globe, will push the growth of the market in the forthcoming years. As per the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women after skin cancer. The latest statistics suggest that over 281,550 new invasive breast cancer cases will be diagnosed in women this year.
The growing trend of cosmetic surgeries for face, neck, lips, and breast implants coupled with the emerging reconstruction procedures to treat congenital deformities will drive substantial gains to the tissue expander industry. In addition, rising R&D activities to support new and technologically advanced product innovations will further augment the industry outlook in the forthcoming years.
Oral and maxillofacial reconstruction tissue expanders are likely to register considerable expansion over the forecast timeframe. These products are used in reconstructive surgeries of the oral cavity, face, mouth, jaws, head and neck, facial trauma, and cosmetic surgeries. Increasing face deformities due to accidents and burn-related cases will rev the demand for these products. Moreover, the availability of advanced products delivering better aesthetic outcomes with lesser complications will further boost the segment growth.
Anatomical tissue expanders may contribute significantly to the market over the projected timeframe. These expanders are used for breast reconstruction and create a drooping envelope-like expansion that mimics the original breast's shape and proportion. They provide a more aesthetical and natural look to the breast with a greater degree of tissue projection.
Clinics segment may witness lucrative growth in the years ahead. The expertise offered by clinical surgeons and the availability of several options of expanders to choose from will help the segment register major gains. Moreover, reduced duration of treatments at clinics will further push the segment expansion.
APAC and North America are likely to bring major impetus to the tissue expanders market.
An emerging number of breast cancer and accidental cases leading to reconstruction surgeries will positively influence the North America tissue expanders industry growth. Increasing awareness about reconstruction surgeries among people, improved healthcare infrastructure, and the availability of field experts will contribute to the market expansion over the forecast timeframe.
Increasing healthcare expenditure driven by the rising disposable personal income may augment the industry outlook in the APAC region. An emerging number of scalp reconstruction procedures and cosmetic surgeries due to alopecia and personal care reasons will further support regional growth.
Some of the key players of the market include GC Aesthetics PLC Koken Allergan, Sientra Inc., Mentor Worldwide LLC., and others. These industry players are adopting strategies like partnerships, collaboration, collaboration, new product innovation, and acquisition to improve their position in the market and gain customer loyalty.
COVID-19 deeply impacted the tissue expanders industry last years. Nationwide lockdowns led to travel and movement restrictions that limited the number of clinical and hospital visits. Moreover, the increased infection risk anxiety and the decline in socio-economic conditions reduced the healthcare expenditure of people across the world.
However, with the lockdowns nearly over, the economic growth is expected to gradually come back to normal, which may eventually propel the industry expansion.
In addition, increasing vaccination has led to an upsurge in clinical and hospital visits and may support further industry expansion.
