The rising number of target patient populations and technological advancements in hernia surgical procedures are prime factors fueling the growth of the hernia repair devices market globally. Hernia repair surgeries are one of the most frequently performed surgeries in the United States. According to the Cleveland Clinic, approximately 5 million Americans have hernias. Most insurance entities, such as Medicare and Medicaid, etc., cover hernia surgery, thus facilitating convenient treatment access for patients.

It is observed that among the considered market segments, the demand for mesh material is the highest, as the treatment approach with mesh represents a drastic shift from autogenous tissue repair to the use of biological and synthetic mesh. Hernias have a high rate of recurrence; therefore, surgeons prefer the use of surgical mesh to support the hernia repair and reduce the risk of recurrence. Although hernia mesh offers several advantages, there are some factors, such as infection, chronic pain, mesh migration, mesh shrinkage, adhesion formation, bowel obstruction, and mesh perforation injuries to surrounding organs, that may negatively impact the market growth of mesh materials. Despite the presence of several local and international companies involved in the manufacture of mesh material, players such as Medtronic Inc., Atrium, C. R. Bard Medicals, B. Braun Melsungen AG, Ethicon Inc., Gore Medical, and LifeCell Corporation mainly dominate this segment due to widespread brand identity among surgeons.

Based on the hernia type, the global hernia repair devices market is segmented as follows:

  • Inguinal
  • Femoral
  • Incisional
  • Ventral
  • Umbilical
  • Hiatal

The rising prevalence of hernia, growing healthcare awareness among the general population, wide availability of hernia-repairing mesh, technological advancement in hernia repair procedures, and favorable reimbursement from government agencies and private organizations are the prime factors that are fueling the growth of the hernia repair devices market, globally. Hernia repair is one of the most common procedures performed worldwide. Among the considered hernia repair procedures, an inguinal hernia is the most common form, with approximately 75% of hernias being inguinal. More than half of inguinal hernias are congenital and are ten times more common in men. According to the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES), almost 600,000 inguinal hernia repair procedures are performed annually in the U.S. Laparoscopic procedures are widely accepted for the treatment of inguinal hernias. Favorable reimbursement policies from insurance companies such as Medicare, Medicaid, Cigna, etc., for hernia surgeries are another factor fueling the growth of the hernia repair devices market.

Among the considered regions, North America is the current leader in the global hernia repair devices market in terms of revenue and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period of 2017–2025. The prominent position of the North American market is supported by certain factors such as early adoption of novel technologies, higher cost of hernia repair devices, well-developed healthcare infrastructure, wide availability of advanced hernia repair devices, and greater prevalence. The rise in funding by government agencies and third-party organizations in the healthcare system is an additional factor that assists the hernia repair device market's progress in the United States. Insurance companies such as Medicare, Medicaid, Cigna, etc., cover hernia repair surgery in the United States.

Furthermore, it is estimated that Asia Pacific will experience lucrative market growth over the forecast period of 2017 to 2025 due to the expansion of the distribution network of key market players in developing countries such as China and India, the growing number of target populations, developing healthcare infrastructure, proliferating medical tourism, and improving economic conditions. It is known that hernia surgery costs are highest in the United States; in developing countries such as India and Mexico, hernia surgeries are performed at a lower cost.
