Tissue Expanders Market: Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018-2026


Tissue expanders are the devices that harness the ability of the organ including skin or other tissues to expand naturally under physiologic pressure such as stretching. Tissue expanders are utilized in the development, or expansion specifically, of skin, and other organs such as breasts, head, and neck among others. Adoption of tissue expansion technique has numerous benefits over biological implants such as rejection of implant by the body can be avoided. Additionally, the new tissue expander developed skin has the characteristics of the adjacent skin in terms of color and texture. Tissue expansion is a widely adopted technique for breast reconstruction, pediatric plastic surgery, and burns surgery. Furthermore, tissue expanders provide an opportunity to the neck and head surgeons to close the injuries or defects that cannot be managed without undue tension.

In terms of market value, the global tissue expanders market is anticipated to surge during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026 owing to the increasing adoption of the technique in the reconstructive surgeries, technological advancement, and rising urbanization. According to the data presented by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, an estimated of 109,256 breast reconstruction procedures were performed in the United States alone, in 2016; that indicates a growth of procedural volume by 3% over the previous year. Furthermore, it was stated that the growth in the procedural volume of breast reconstruction procedures was calculated to 39% since 2000 in the United States, indicating high adoption of the technique. Furthermore, deformities or scars can be resulted from road accidents or burn cases that require surgical treatment, contributing to the growth of the global market. However, high treatment cost, complications associated with implantation, and shortage of trained professionals hinders the global tissue expanders market.

The tissue expanders market is categorized based on the applications, end-users, shapes, and geography. Based on the application, the tissue expander market is segmented into face & neck reconstruction, breast reconstruction, forehead skin & scalp reconstruction, and others. In 2017, breast reconstruction expected to hold a major share in the market owing to the high adoption of the devices globally. Based on end-user, the market is segmented into hospitals, cosmetology clinics, and ambulatory surgical centers. Hospitals led the market in terms of value due to the major share of reconstructive surgeries performed in hospitals. Based on shape, the market is segmented into crescent, round, anatomical, and rectangular tissue expanders. Anatomical tissue expanders segment dominated the market in 2017 due to provision of a greater degree of projection compared to other expanders. In 2017, North America dominated the market owing to the increased adoption of reconstructive surgery and growing healthcare expenditure. Asia Pacific is anticipated to experience the fastest growth during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.
