Industry Outlook

Hemorrhoids are characterized by swelling and inflammation of veins in the anal canal and cause irritation, pain and itching to the patients. At present, several sufferers seek relief with an assortment of products such as home remedies, topical ointments of varying strengths and compositions. Direct application products offer temporary relief and have to be used for a limited period. Products such as cushions also offer comfort while sitting and cannot be considered as a treatment. Demographic studies have also revealed that those who purchase hemorrhoid care products have some primary factors in common such as age, low-income average, low education and so on. High education and high income bracket of patients is more appealing to permanent surgical treatments. However, lowering prices of band ligation treatments is anticipated to attract further patient groups.

Hemorrhoids is a common condition. It is estimated that as the U.S. population approached 50, half of this group will have experienced hemorrhoids; common causes being constipation, obesity, heavy lifting, compromised diet, sitting for longer periods and also diarrhea. The National institute of Diabetes and Digestive Kidney Diseases reported that 10.4 million Americans suffer from hemorrhoids, with 1 million new cases being reported every year. Among these, only one in three individuals seek medical help and treatment, thus leaving a huge set of population untreated. In several cases where medical treatment and lifestyle changes are not effective, patients are treated surgically and endoscopically.

"Band ligation to remain the most sought treatment method"

For internal and severe form of hemorrhoids, where conventional non-surgical are not effective invasive treatments such as band ligation, infrared coagulation and sclerotherapy are preferred. However, there is no clinical consensus on optimal treatment. The treatment goal of each of these treatments is limiting vascularity. Among the considered treatment methods, rubber band ligation is the most commonly performed procedure in outpatient settings. This treatment modality is reserved for patients with more severe patients that are not responding to non-operative therapies. There is substantial clinical data suggesting the efficacy of band ligation and significant reporting is available comparing band ligation with other methods. Recurrence of hemorrhoids after treatment is a chief limitation of band ligation, therefore restricting the market growth.
